“Don't believe the breakfast reviews: disappointing”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

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 food at expensive prices outweighs the beauty and ambiance of the restaurant.

“Jazz Restaurant in Kitano Great Place for Breakfast or Lunch”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

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.

“What a suprise”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

Jazz in the Lounge @ the Kitano was great. 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 good. Don Friedman Salzau Trio & Gerdur Gunnarsdottir String Quartet were playing and they were great!!

“Great place to bring clients”
Reviewed August 24, 2012 via mobile

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.
