I love this place. It is the a classy, eloquent and yet welcoming and casual venue for great jazz in the city. The staff treats you like old friends or family, old friends or family that you actually are happy to see. The "no talking during performances' is rightly enforced. Don't go if the music isn't your primary need. You... More

Nothing special for breakfast but the service is good. The bar hops in the eves and late night the jazz is outstanding.

To be clear-this is a review of the Jazz at Kitano club. I am not reviewing food, or the hotel. This is a great room for jazz--in the wonderful Murray HIll neighborhood. It is very residential, and a bit hard to find-but you will not find a more attentive crowd (or staff, for that matter). The sound and sightlines are... More

Soft, cool, wonderful ambience for a brunch. We had a perfect brunch while enjoying the music. Good food, perfect drinks and elegant service. When you get tired of the big scene, go here and really enjoy. A perfect "feelgoodbrunch"!

The meals (tuna for my wife and mushroom ravioli for me) were very good and the live jazz was excellent. In addition the price, for NYC was very reasonnable.

Beautiful restaurant with attentive staff but was so disappointing. I had read so many reviews about the amazing breakfasts there. My eggs benny were below average and my colleague's sausage and eggs looked like diner sausages that were left over from the day before (at $25 for that, it was outrageous). We really wanted to like it there but poor... More

If you are looking to have a power breakfast or lunch Jazz Restaurant in the Kitano Hotel is great. Prices are reasonable for midtown on Park Ave, and service is great. *2 blocks from Grand Central Terminal

We had orignally got a deal @ the Metropolitan Room but.. it was a late show 11:30PM and did not want to venture out that late so.. we decided to stay at the hotel and use our free coupon (which covered the entrance $10.00). Order a glass of white wine very... More

If you are after a place near Grand Central Station to bring clients then this is one bar you should try. The intermittent settings and impeccable service allows you to conduct your meeting with you knowing that you will not be rushed or interrupted by the waiter.
