We visited the cabaret with friends and enjoyed the show. This restaurant had a fun atmosphere with lots of people crowded into a small space talking, drinking, and enjoying the music. I had heard that restaurants on Restaurant Row (46th Street in the theater district) were overpriced, but that was an understatement. The cabaret had a $10 cover plus a... More

The chef is doing a great job. The waiters however not so much. It started with the wine. The first waiter filled the last zip of a bottle in a glass and left with the empty bottle in hand. A second waiter continued it without knowing what his colleague did. He he mixed two different kind of wines. In addition... More

I'm so disappointed that my review starts with the fact that, this restaurant, that serves fantastic food, and great service, attached to a cabaret bar, plays some sort of radio station while you dine!!!! I can't fault the food, spaghetti and meatballs just divine, and my sister had the 'delicious' pizza. However we noticed throughout dinner that we were trying... More

This place was packed! Our seating was not the greatest as we had to sit in an adjacent room and look around the corner to see the pianist. Singers were allowed to participate - one was terrible, so I think they should not allow this unless the staff knows who is going to sing. Overall, we had fun. Does not... More

I have often gone to the piano bar at Don't Tell Mama but last night was my first visit to the restaurant side. They have a very good and reasonably priced prix fixe menu. I had a delicious lentil soup, baked salmon and a creative brownie for dessert. It was a great deal at $30 and in the heart of... More

After a show - or dinner - this is a great place to go for fun - but few negatives to consider: Seating is tight - small tables with no elbow room You must have 2 drinks each - with beers at $9 and cocktails at $13 but there no cover charge so fair enough No reservations taken - you... More

We went into the piano bar and not the restaurant. They don't tell you that each person has to order a drink. The food was not good at all.

Wonderful bistro on Restaurant Row. Very intimate and good food. On my next trip I want to go to the cabaret or piano bar.

We got to sing along with our waitress. The drinks were good and the staff was attentive and it was situated across the street from our hotel so we could crawl home.

Was told to go there as it was a highlight - anything but! Drinks expensive and with a 2 drink minimum was an expensive and very ordinary night . Sorry but the bar staff aren't great singers - BIG disappointment
