Went here on a Wednesday evening about 6pm. Dining room was full as well as the bar, but I found a seat at the bar. Service was quick and friendly. I had the spare ribs, baked beans and sweet potato mash. All were good. The honey biscuit was a nice touch too. Also had the key lime pie which was great. Price was a bit high on the desserts, but may not be out of line for the area, I'm just not familiar. Would recommend.

This restaurant absolutely lived up to reviews in all aspects. We had reservations but arrived early so sat @ bar until hostess came to seat us. We each ordered rib platters which were delicious & falling-off-the-bone tender. I had forgotten, and must echo previous comments, that rib portions are definitely large enough to share, especially if you're having drinks, appetizers & dessert. Highest ratings to staff as well who were pleasant, engaging & informative.

Came in for lunch before WTC. Aroma was enticing. Perfect meal, flavors where on point! Brisket and Greens, Baby Backs and Beans all spot on!

We took our young granddaughters who shared an order of beef ribs. very big portions with lots left over.
THursday night they serve beef ribs, which are large and delicious..
my husband and I each ordered our own portions, this too was a mistake one order would have been more than enough with some over.
the location is excellent if going to visit Ground Zero or Statue of Liberty.
cross over the road and go to the Brookfield Place mall after dinner to La District for the finest home made delicious ice cream
SAlads and fries were perfect too.

Made a reservation for Blue Smoke for a birthday dinner. When they called to confirm I was asked what the special occasion was and the guest of honor's name. After dinner we were surprised with a yummy piece of key lime pie, birthday candle and all.
Our entire meal from appetizer to dessert was amazing. The portion sizes were perfect, and the food was delicious.
The service at Blue Smoke was exceptional. Everyone was so nice and helpful, and seemed to know people who were coming in to eat.
Go to Blue Smoke!!! You won't be disappointed!
