We were there in June for a great Afro-Cuban jazz show and everything was wonderful. Tables are tight but the service was excellent as is both the drink and food menu. The food comes from the Blue Smoke and it is the best bbq! The only negative was the price. I know it's Manhattan so on par with other locations... More

Booked this after a recommendation on Facebook. It was our first dinner after arriving in NYC for the first time. Tired and jet lagged we had no expectations at all. Turned out to be a good choice! The restaurant on the ground floor seemed a little boring and at first we thought we had come to the wrong place. A... More

Didn't know what to expect. Walked into a very cozy club. Service was warm and friendly. Surprisingly good smoked southern food. Good music, nice, homey ambiance. 20 piece band. How could you go wrong? Even my 22 year old daughter enjoyed it.

We are Jazz lovers, being in NYC means - get as much of it as we could. The venue is a bit overcrowded, but we had a good table and the setting is among other patrons, so we had the opportunity to sit next to a couple of New Yorkers on one site and another from Chicago on the other.... More

We are in the mid 50s as a couple but the audience average age was higher than us. We thought we would find some locals in the club but it was all touristy! Tables are quite large enough for couples comparing to other underground jazz clubs! Serving is friendly but late. Menu choices are very much limited to ribs and... More

We go here several times a year. I used to be sure this was the best jazz club in all of New York: friendly service, the best jazz club food, the most respectful management in a business that generally treats its customers like won't-be-back-again tourists (which most of them in fact are). For the most part these things are still... More

We went to see Maria Schneider's big band over Thanksgiving weekend with a large party. We reserved in advance and got a great table right where Maria was conducting. This review is about the venue, not the band, but I have to say that the band was totally excellent … everyone in the group was 100% invested in Maria's music.... More

First time here but not the last. Jazz Standard is a cozy club with top flight jazz in an atmosphere conducive to listening. Acoustics and site lines were excellent. The "no drink" minimum is a welcome deviation from what appears to be standard policy at many other clubs. Our waiter was friendly and attentive without pestering us to purchase more... More

Saw Ravi coltrane with a group that must not have played together much. Each of the guys pretty much did his own thing. One disjoint solo followed by another pretending to be a song. Disappointing

On out recent trip to NYC we decided to see Danilo Perez at the Jazz Standard. The show was great and the room is excellent for listening with good sightlines and a welcome "no loud talking" policy that every music showcase club should have. The food we ordered - rib assortment and house special endive salad - were delicious and... More
