Service was sketchy with attitude. The steak was good however the fries came out separately cold too much truffle butter on them. Asked for steak sauce they couldn't find any finished meal without.

Slow service, terrible restaurant week menu - hummus and chocolate ice cream are nothing special - the fried chicken gave me a stomachache, and they rushed us out at the end. Overall a really negative experience and I will not be coming back.

Fried chicken and braised short ribs were fabulous. Crispy chicken with a sweet and spicy kick. Spaetzel was a creative side. Excellent drinks menu and great location right outside the park. Will definitely be back!

Pork Chop and potato grottin was excellent; should be put on menu full-time in Fall/Winter. Martini was made with perfection. Oysters fresh! Only complaint wish espresso machine was working which is why I'm only giving 4 stars but the food was outstanding quality. Yum

Excellent food - our table of three had 2 entrees, 1 appetizer and 2 sides and all were excellent. Shout-out to the seared scallops - five perfectly cooked scallops on a corn salad base; the lettuce wedge salad; and the french fries which were the perfect width and delightfully salted (too many places are just so *stingy* with the salt, and this is something that you can't make up for tableside - it's got to be slathered on when they're hot-hot-hot, right out of the fryer.

The fried chicken was the key reason we go to The Ribbon and our fear is that this dish has fallen off in terms of quality. It used to be one of the more succulent fried chicken in eve had. But this last trip was a disappointment. I hope it was a fluke.

Neighborhood restaurant with good food. But tonight I had close to the worst service anywhere. Restaurant was 20% full with plenty of staff. Soup served with no spoon, two requests to get it. Entrée with no fork….after multiple requests I took one off an adjacent table. No offer of a second round of cocktails, no offer of dessert/coffee until we asked. We felt unwanted and ignored. Food was fine but why dine out to be mistreated? I liked this place but won’t be back.

Went with 2 young children for brunch on a Sunday. The place wasn't crazy busy, it was quite manageable. They had children's food options that weren't on the menu. They got us in and out pretty quickly. Also they have enough pescetarian and vegetarian options. Food was good. Overall very pleased.

Thoroughly enjoyed the meal, as did my dining companion. My server was very professional, but he must have been triple-seated or something, because it took quite a while for him to come to our table to take our drink order--at least 10 minutes. He also mixed up my dinner order, which was one of the two specials, with the other special. Still, he was knowledgeable and pleasant, and he completely completely owned his error. My correct order was delivered pretty quickly, so it wasn't a big deal.
The decor is a bit cheesy, which is too bad, because it's a great space and the food really is delicious. It's also overpriced, given the kind of restaurant it seems to be trying to be, i.e., a casual, family tourist-targeted kind of spot. I'm happy to spend $100 a person on a good meal, but I'd like the environment to appear to be worth it as well.

Our server was great and attentive. He even brought a chair to keep our bags off the ground. He gave us time to look over the menu and made sure the meal was as expected. Food came out quickly but was hot and delicious. I had eggs Benedict and the sauce was delicious. My friend had the egg sandwich and said it was very tasty. All in all we had such a pleasant experience. We also sat up front by the windows and didn’t notice any chill. I’d go back and try it out again.

I had to keep flagging the waiter down even though there was almost no one in the restaurant. I had an issue with the description of the food and what I received. On the website it said that servers would be wearing masks and that is why I picked the place. It was not the case. All disappointing.

The food was superb and we loved the ambiance! The menu had so many great choices, it was difficult to decide. But the Breakfast Sandwich and the Omelets were the selections, and they were great. We started by sharing the flatbread among four of us and it was worth it!
