Went for the Jazz but was surprised to find the food was quite good. Tables are very close together so best to check a large coat which costs a dollar up front. If you get there a bit early you get a better choice of seats. For an 8:00 show doors open at 6 but arrival around 7:00 works pretty... More

If you go, reserve a seat get there early and be prepared to wait in line to get in. It's worth the wait. Great acoustics, cozy seating and fast service at the table.

Went to blue note for a David Sanborn performance. The place is really charming, music was TOP, drinks good and food great. The waitress was very friendly and helpful. This was a very nice experience!! Worth every penny spent!

The sights and sounds of New York are familiar to most people. However the ultimate jazz experience - has to be the Blue Note in New York. The venue is intimate and cozy; the music touches your soul. Having recently visited for Sunday brunch, would absolutely recommend to anybody and everybody visiting New York. Your visit would not be complete... More

We went for a Sunday brunch. The music was outstanding. Worth every penny we paid. The chairs were very tightly crammed together -- little elbow room. The servers brought our food which was average. Nothing special, but hot and cooked properly. Then we saw very little of our server. We did not know hash browns came with the meal and... More

We arrived at our hotel in midtown around 9pm after flying from the east coast of Australia. Very tired. Had tickets to 10pm show. Arrived in good time and were almost head of queue. It was freezing but had an enjoyable conversation with an old jazz muso next to us while waiting. Once inside we sat central to the stage... More

The Blue Note gives you an opportunity to see jazz greats like Kenny G, Earl Klugh, Bob James, Chick Correa, David Sandborn, Brenda Russell and many others up close and personal. It is a great club, with surprisingly good food. Highly recommend.

Great music, especially if you enjoy leg and neck cramp while listening. This used to be a great place, it is now full on business. This is fair enough but it isn't progress and is unfair on the punters. I now recommend people go elsewhere, really anywhere else, for jazz in NY. There's plenty of it and you will be... More

Saw Cassandra Wilson at the Blue note on Saturday 18/10/14. She appeared to be "not with it" and in our opinion gave a very mediocre performance,. she did a very short set during which she did 5-6 songs , leaving her band to carry most of her performance, not what I would expect from a very expensive venue. The food... More
