Let me start by saying that I am a singer, a restaurant owner, and a fan of Michael Feinstein's, so the idea of seeing a cabaret show with dinner while visiting NYC for the first time was very appealing. Also, I did not read any Trip Advisor reviews on this place before I went (bad traveler, bad traveler!). So, I booked show tickets online and was well aware of the $40 per person F&B charge before we went, but we bit the bullet. (Minimums are actually illegal were I'm from, so I really had to let this one go.) I also was disappointed with our seats after paying top dollar for the premium seating. Do not do this! We were crammed together with other couples, and the waiters were tripping over us and in a hurry to get everyone's drink and dinner orders placed, served and cleared by the time the show started. The martinis were $23, and the pasta bolognaise was tasteless. I loved the performance we saw - the music was great. But if I ever have another romantic weekend getaway in NYC, I'll go to another club I research better - someplace where I fee neither rushed nor like cattle being led to $23 martini's.
