Tiny, funky upper west side jazz club and the food is outrageous. Try the salmon or the ribs or a burger.

There were two sets of great Jazz last night and each had a separate dining sitting. We opted for the second, 8:30pm meal. We arrived around 8:20 and were immediately seated at one of approx 25 tables for two that were arranged in two long rows allowing good sight lines for diners. We requested another table closer to the stage to facilitate my wife's photography objectives and the owner/maitre'd happily complied.
There seemed to be two order-takers and at least two other servers working very efficiently to present the two-course, prix-fixe choices in a short time. Our starters of fried calamari and buffalo wings were very good. My wife thought her main of lobster jambalaya was excellent, while I felt my truffled Malbec chicken was dried out and I couldn't eat the white meat.
Bar service and pricing was good but I was unhappy when they tried to substitute (without telling me) an Oregon Pinot noir for the Russian River Sonoma item on their wine list. I ultimately choose a French Beaune.
I would stick with quick cook-to-order menu choices if I were to visit again.

Really nice! I will definitely visit Smoke again on my next visit to NYC.

We had a great dinner and the music (Gregory Generet) was amazing. The restaurant is small which makes it more intimate. A wonderful experience.

Do make reservations though! Especially when there is live music!

This restaurant is an easy subway ride from Times Square and the short trip is worth it ten fold. The place is small so I would make reservations, but they do have a several sittings per night. We got there 15 minutes early and were seated in the front tables. The dinner on Sunday to Thursday is fixed price ($30) and it was amazing. Our main courses were to die for and our companions said the cheese cake was the best that they had ever had. The music was awesome, we went on a Thursday so we had Gregory Generet and a very accomplished group of musicians. We did a lot in NYC and we are still talking about our night at the SmokeJazz club. Awesome! Truly amazing and for $30 on a weeknight? Are you kidding me? You must go there!
