    The food was nothing special. The roasted potatoes were chewey, likely cooked the day before and microwaved before served. The only highlight of the experience was the French toast. Sugary and crisp. This place is all hype, but no quality behind it.

    We had made reservations and arrived to the restaurant early. We were then told they could not accommodate us because another reservation brought extra people. They would be able to accommodate us, however, if we wanted to sit outside at a high top tables. We sat outside but we’re very uncomfortable, complained then all of a sudden a table became available.

    We had an overall really good experience at the Blue Dog. We had a reservation for three for 730 on a Friday night. We arrived a few minutes early were told us that the only table they had available for us inside was at a shared community table with other people. Normally that wouldn’t be a problem for us however all three seats were in a row so it would’ve been awkward for conversation and the only other option was to sit outside. We agreed to take the outside table, but I mentioned to the host that they should note this as a possibility or option when making a reservation. She seemed a little out off and told me she had no control over the seating-which seemed in contrast to the point of making a reservation. It was a very warm, humid night and sitting outside want our first choice. But it appeared the hostess communicated our sentiment because after we ordered our drinks, a staff member came over and asked us if we’d like to move inside once they had a table cleared—so that was great. The seating inside is very close together and we were seated next to a couple pretty closely so we could hear pretty much their entire conversation. For us, this isn’t a problem but something you might want to be aware of of you’re interested in privacy. The decor and atmosphere is so cute, the staff was friendly, and The food was amazing!! We had the spinach and artichoke dip appetizer, salmon, steak salad and the vegetarian burger—probably the best best vegetarian burger we’ve ever had! We would definitely go back.

    Very welcoming and accommodating. My wife had a knee replacement and after explaining, we were moved from a table with higher chairs to a traditional one. Our request to sit in the large outdoor hallway area also was honored, and it was a wonderful area in which to dine. Wait staff and food excellent as well. We both enjoyed a hearty weekday brunch.

    Our favorite brunch spot. We always choose Blue Dog when going to the theater. Great, fresh food options for the whole family and excellent cocktails! Sit outside if the weather is nice. A bit crowded and noisy inside.

    We were in NYC for a B Day celebration for our youngest. We were attending a matinee and just happened upon The Blue Dog for lunch. What a find!! The weather was fantastic so their outside sitting area was really nice and the food was even better. Brunch all day brought back childhood memories of “breakfast for dinner” which my kids still enjoy. We will be back and highly recommend the French Toast as well as the Avacado Toast!!

    The Blue Dog Restaurant was pretty good. We liked the fact that they let us in early, our breakfast reservation was set for 10:00am. We got there @9:30am. The food was ok.. my fiancé said the bread on her breakfast sandwich was a bit on the hard side. But overall everything was pretty good.

    Nice outdoor atmosphere but the food was average at best. We ordered a burger to split, medium-rare, and it was raw in the middle. Didn't have time to send back. Soggy fries. There are too many restaurants in NYC to go to an average one. Won't be coming back.
