I'm sorry. I went to see Janis SIegel perform on New Year's Eve 2019. First they made us wait outside in the cold for 1/2 hr - with no explanation when I asked. I love Janis SIegel (of the Manhattan Transfer). What was not so great is the venue for a first class artist like

Response from Ellen P, General Manager at Jazz Forum
Responded Jan 6, 2020
Hello, As the General Manager of the Jazz Forum, I appreciate your comments as we do for both positive and negative feedback. I am so sorry you had the experience you described at the Jazz Forum. We did make a big mistake having early bird guests wait outside before seating for the 6 pm seating; I should have checked the length of the line and addressed that right away. We book many first class artists on regular nights every weekend and explain at the start of every set that we are a listening room - the music is the reason folks come and the menu of food and drink is secondly and yet, not unimportant. We are committed to a positive and attentive experience for both musicians and guests. We are also always looking for ways to both serve our guests efficiently and keep the noise in the kitchen and bar to a minimum in our open space. As for the raised stage, we made an intentional decision to maintain the living room feel of the club and allow for bands of all sizes to perform. On New Year's Eve, it is one night when that commitment is challenged by the celebratory nature of the evening. Last, if there was a misunderstanding about our minimum for that special night, I apologize for that. If you take a look at our line-up, we hope you will come for upcoming first-class shows and experience our promise to keep the sounds off the stage to a minimum. We will be sure to take care of you. Please feel free to follow up with me by email at ellen@jazzforumarts.org. Sincerely, Ellen K. Prior General Manager Jazz Forum

Glad we got to enjoy early Sunday evening Jazz and a nice dinner with friends at this hidden spot in Tarrytown. Reserve and arrive early to get your preferred (unassigned) seats, as the place fills up quickly.

We had good food, great entertainment at reasonable prices. We made a reservation and arrived early so we could start our meal, which was optional. There was a small cover charge which included the price of one or two drinks if we were not eating.

Went here for a 7 pm show on Saturday Nice venue down a side street/ally in Tarrytown Easy to miss Need to get there about 20-30 min before the show for closest tables We sat near the entrance which was fine but given the L shaped room was a bit far to see the band. But it
