I have been to the blue note yesterday evening with two friends of mine . we were there to see chick Korea. I had reserved a table for three two days before. when we saw the line waiting before the blue note we thought that this could not be the real place because I had remembered the room having been...

Loved this experience! Great jazz club, spectacular show, really cool food, I just ordered the wrong dish for the experience to have been 100% excellent but the dessert more than made up for my main dish. But the service was super professional and really well coordinated around the venue and the performers. We were sandwiched in with several strangers from... More

The filets were very good and larger than expected. The SPicy Fish Stew was also a hit. One meal, the salmon was below average. THe salmon was too dry. Wines were pricy, 4 x liquor store price but considering it was NYC and Dee Dee Bridgewater was the entertainment we were understanding. The Flourless Chocolate Cake was excellent

We recently had dinner and caught a set at the Blue Note in Greenwich Village in New York. The food and service were very good and the jazz was fantastic. The crowd was very lively which the band obviously appreciated. My only suggestion is to get there early. If you come close to the beginning of the set, as we... More

My son loves jazz so when I saw the LS coupon online for a jazz brunch I had to go. I've heard about Blue Note for many years, but I hate going into NYC from Jersey... so I don't go too much. Well this place is the quintessential classic jazz club... dark, not spotlessly clean, but you could feel the... More

Reviews for this establishment are all over the place. I went during the recent annual Blue Note Jazz Festival and I was pleasantly surprised. Yes if the act is popular and the small house is full then seating resembles public transit at rush hour. Cover charges can be steep, but were reduced for the particular series. The food was better... More

So I got treated here by a New Yorker as a must do attraction. I'm not a huge jazz fan but the music was amazing! You could really get into it. The seating was crowded however as they try and cram everyone into table seating, some people having to strain their necks to see. Waitress wasn't very friendly either.

The Blue Note is probably the most famous Jazz club in NY, and therefore in the world. However, in order to enjoy the great selecion to stars they have, one has to be avalible and pay the price. Entrance and food / drinks are definitely not cheap, while quality is just acceptable; and you can stay there only for the... More

This is an impossible to place to rate. If you consider the musicians featured at the Blue Note or it's place in jazz history, it's a six-star experience. I've been here twice, and the music was awesome. If you consider the Blue Note from the standpoint of comfort, food and service, this is a two-star (and maybe even 1.5 stars).... More

You can't dis the Blue Note on its artists: the best of the best. And the sound system does ensure that they can be heard well, no matter where you may be sitting. However, the long and slender shape of the room itself means that seeing the stage from many seats requires some contortions. Even so, don't let that stop... More
