Small, intimate, not busy and top artists! Plus we really enjoyed the food. One of the best surprises of our trip so far..

For jazz lovers this is a departure from the grittier LES joints. Classy sums it up fine. On the UWS Smoke has a solid house band to chill to. The service is what you expect for that part of town too. However the real attraction is the food and drinks. A very nice wine selection with NY pricing and great... More

Now that's what I call jamming and real Jazz...Love going to Smoke...not only is the music quality outstanding, the vibe is real. Lots of musicians stop by after their own gigs other places and start jamming...the service is great and the atmosphere worth the trip, wherever you are!

The food is pretty good, the drinks are very good, but what you are really going for is the live jazz. Annette St. John and her Trio are the brunch show offering, and they are WONDERFUL!!!

This place should be definitely added to the bucket list when jazz spots of NYC are concerned. 3 sets pear night of great jazz ( first starts at 8:00 PM- last at 10:45). 2 drinks minimum ( about $20 per person) end up being a cover charge. Great music - but you have to quiet while the sets are on.... More

My wife and I were in NYC in March (2014) and I chose SJC because Harold Maeburn was playing piano on the night we went to the club. The performance was average but the food experience was terrible First, the table we were seated at was too small to handle the two meals we chose. Second, I wanted iced tea... More

I was really looking forward to the jazz night and the music did not disappoint. However it was the only place we visited in New York over 7 days that I felt was there to take our money more than entertain. We chose Smoke due to its initimate venue - which it was. We ordered a main course which I... More

Went to Smoke last night as we had arrived in NYC for our 10th anniversary. The food and service was fantastic, a set price of $38 including music was superb. The jazz band were brilliant, the atmosphere really great. Would recommend to anyone who lives good food, good service and jazz!

We had a brilliant night. Lovely small intimate restaurant with great staff, great food and great music. Would recommend the NY strip steak it was cooked to perfection. The staff were all excellent and the big band night was awesome.

I hit this club 6-7 times each year and have had a great experience every time. I prefer to arrive about 45 minutes before the start of the first evening set. Getting there early means being able to grab a prime table. Also, I arrive early so I can have dinner nearly finished by the time the first set begins.... More
