OUr highlight

Amazing the highlight of out trip .. The music was sensational was sensational. Food was fine, Keith had the steak that was great. If you book with American express you can get a great table reserved for you. Otherwise you cannot reserve a table you have to get there early to get the best seats.

First, as other reviewers have said, get there early for a good seat (and/or use American Express and better seats). And be prepared to have new best friends as the seats are crammed together. We were there to hear Bob James, and it was a nice show. His music is pretty typical "smooth jazz." We weren't sure how good the... More

My hubby and I visited Blue Note to listen to Earl Klugh. It was his first night performing. We reserved a table so we could thoroughly enjoy the performance. It's a small venue so most seats have a good view of the stage. Be warned- seating is tight . Our table was meant for 8 persons. They give you seat... More

I went for the jazz brunch. Overall, the experience was a lot of fun. The musicians were great. There was very little room to sit, however. Butting up RIGHT behind you were other people. Make sure you are super skinny in order to fit! The food was just so-so, if not basic.

Reserve because place are almost reserved in advance. And I suggest to arrive early, to be in the first to have access. The room is small, but large. So, place in extremity are not really good… The rate for food, and bar are the same of NYC… And the feeling of be a guest on THE Blue Note is… great!

It's been my ambition to visit the Blue Note for so long - and it didn't disappoint! Great Seats at a great gig and loads of fun. Table service is fast and efficient and although the bar prices are steep it's well worth paying for the experience. Loved it!

We took a brunch at Mother’s Day. We have made a reservation on-line, but it was not necessary. We were 10 minutes late and music show has already started. Judy Wexler was singing nice and whole feeling was cosy, including the food and wine. The Blue Note is one of holy places in NYC for me, so I have had... More

You have the Garage and you have Blue Note for brunch. Always good music and the food is fine. Fabulous and first class performers.

We went to see a jazz band called "Combo Nuvo" and very smart we had made reservations in advance. Professional staff welcomed us and expectations were high. But you shouldn't go there for the brunch menu. We adults survived but our son ended up with butter/cinnamon fried toast and scrambled eggs. With syrup. Strange meal for a European .... Jazz...

Music was good, food was mediocre, very tight seating, kind of expensive, though not more expensive than other things in New York. So we had a nice time and I'm glad I went, but I didn't feel the value or the need to return.

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighborhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighborhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
