Great whisky, live music, service and appetizers. Expensive, but worth it.

I was incredibly impressed
I was incredibly impressed with the bartender. Actually seemed genuinely interested in us enjoying some of the crazy cocktails.
Do wish they had a bit more of a wine selection, but I'll definitely be back.

If you want a table, it's
If you want a table, it's best to make a reservation.Otherwise you can sit/stand at the bar. Flatiron Room has complimentry coat check which is nice. We didn't order food, but there were a few table eating. FlatIron is a great place date spot night or just to getther with friends and enjoy some jazz. It's not too loud so even if your up front you can still engage in conversation with your companion.

If Scotch or Bourbon is important
to you - then this is the place. It's not so much dinner - though they have mains. It's Whiskies and the nibbles that go with them. It is best to make a reservation - I have been a bottle holder and been shutout. All in all a lovely experience. Good live music and a wealth of whiskey. Definitely NOT for kids.

Laid back, low lighting, singer on a small stage for some light background music. Seemed like a bit older crowd than us (we're 27), but it was a nice change to do something different. Likely wouldn't return as there are so many options and this wasn't really our type of place, but it was nice to experience once. Food was very good though.

The atmosphere is very romantic and the music was excellent (Sofija Knezevic). The service was excellent from the moment we walked in the door. The food was amazing. We started with the Roasted bone marrow which was smooth and rich like butter. I had the Chilean Sea bass and it was the best sea food dish I've had in a long time. My wife had the lamb chops. She said the chops had the perfect caramelization and the mole sauce gave them a nice robust flavor. The potato gratin gave her that down home feeling. We also ordered the Single Malt Flight which complimented both of our dishes. Our server Joe was very knowledgeable about the whisky and took the time to show us each bottle and gave us a little extra info about each. 10/10

The ambiance is really unique & the service is incredible. Our host Grace was very helpful at getting us a table even though we showed up an hour late. The waiter was very helpful and efficient and the music playing was very relaxing. This place is a gem!!!

It's a very nice place. Great atmosphere and the live music is wonderful. Amazing drink selection, however be prepared to wait and pay handsomely. Over-all, good experience.

Cuban salsa + vintage whisky = win!
I had a great time at the Flatiron. I had several whisky cocktails that were all well balanced and amazingly potent. I also tried the steak tips, yummy! Chimchurri for the win! And I tried the margherita pizza and that was just enough to keep me from going home wasted.
I thoroughly enjoyed the live music and our service was great overall I had a great time!

Music and whiskey
The menu was like a book, but only 2 pages are food. The rest is whiskey, over 700! The service is good and waitress is knowlegeable. We enjoyed the music and food we had was great. I would definitely return.

I'm from PA so I make all my dinner reservations through open table when doing business in NYC. This was the best find yet! Excellent whiskey selection and flight tastings. We didn't plan for this, but the server suggested different rye and scotch tastings for the table and my clients loved it! They had live jazz playing and a decent menu as well. The dark lighting and chilled atmosphere was very appealing. Even my clients, who are from NYC, said they had never heard of the place, but loved it and will be back. I will definitely revisit.

My husband and I came here
My husband and I came here for a double date with our friends. Great vibe and ambience - the pink and purple uplighting on the stage was pretty and reminiscent of our wedding from a month ago. There was a jazz band that performed at 9PM.
The whiskey list is staggering and impressive, but my girlfriend and I stuck to cocktails ($15) while the men sipped on the hard liquor. The prices are standard to NYC, but I thought the cocktails were on the small side to be $15 but they were strong.
We ordered the cheese board, 2 mac & cheese dishes, flatbread mushroom, and the bone marrow. My favorite was the bone marrow; wasn't too impressed with the mac & cheese though the spiciness was a pleasant surprise.
We were all very full and satisfied.

Such a great and different vibe. I'm not a whiskey fan but my boyfriend is. They had a great (but expensive) cocktail list and tons of whiskey options and flights. The band playing was great and so was the ambiance. I loved how it had an old-school/prohibition feel to it. It's a must-go!

Best Scotch bar in manhattan
This was my fourth of fifth visit to the Flat Iron Room and once again, it. did not disappoint. I have brought many a friends here, both locals who are new to the Scotch/Whisky experience and out of towners looking for a fun NYC thing to do. All were entertained. The live bands are always a nice touch, providing additionl ambience to an already exquisite environment. Saturdays seem a little loud for my tastes, but overall not too bad. While the drinks are great, I think most people sleep on the food. Don't! The Mac and cheese alone has an instant craveability. My mouth waters just thinking about it. Be careful though, it is spicy and definitely has a kick.

Happy to have found this new spot
Great for those who love whisky of all sorts! And if you're a single lady, plenty of guys in the house. There was decent live music as well.
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
At the outset, was not sure if group was coming, however lady at the door was SuperNice and situated me in one of the rooms.Didn't want to spoil the evening for no show, so ordered the Lambchops done in medium rare and it was succulent and juicy. Have to try it medium next time. Wld have wanted to stay for jazz band but didn't want to do it alone.Will definitely come back.hopefully with an adorable lady.

great drinks, great whiskey
If you are in the mood for a good cocktail or whiskey and want some live music come here. Its a fun atmosphere to relax with a nice drink and listen to the music. Food is very good too.

After reading an article on
After reading an article on flatiron room I was excited to come to NY and sample their whiskey selection.
Looking at the price for one dram of simple well known scotch i just laught so hard. It was just too expensive and if you are a scotch amateur you will feel that you are helping Flatiron room to pay for their rent. For example a dram of bowmore legend will cost you as much as half for a new bottle of legend in any liquor store. Just nonsense.

$$$ But Beautiful
Here' s place where you go to spend a pretty penny and enjoy some delicious drinks and good music. The food was absolutely delcious and the drink were interesting. My boyfriend did the whiskey flight which he absolutely loved. Beware that everything takes absolutely forever here so make sure you order right away and specify if you want the App to come out before your meal. Definitely go here for a special occasion!

What a great spot!
A small but tasty menu, but the real reason for coming here is for the jazz, and the outstanding selection of whiskeys from all over the world.
Service was excellent, and extremely knowledgeable.
Looking forward to a return visit!

What a great spot. Like speak easy. Highly tecommend

i booked this table for a group of friends + family (I'm the singer who performs there Friday nights in The Joanne Weaver Trio) and they had a wonderful time! They all said the food was great, the drinks of course are amazing (and what they're known for---well worth the wait, as they put extra TLC in them), and everyone who's *ever* come to watch us perform is continually impressed w/ the ambiance and the stage and the whole experience---they call it "very New York" and there seems to be a good equal mix of tourists having a fancy night out, and regulars / New Yorkers who enjoy the scene. It's a great place, I love playing here, the staff is incredible + super cool, and I highly recommend it for a night out....especially Friday nights! ;)

We had a great evening at The Flatiron Room. I reserved a table so we had a very nice and comfortable place to sit for the 4 of us. The have an extensive whiskey list which is hard to choose from. The music was fantastic: not too loud, not too soft. Great service. Our guests loved it as well! We didn't eat here, so therefore I rated that part with 3 stars.

Went to Flatiron Room because of a recent article in the Whisky Advocate. First off the space is amazing. Very vibrant scene, great music and exceptional selection of whisky and cocktails. So if you like live jazz or the sort, and whisky this is the place for you. The food was good, not great. The charcuterie and cheese plate was great, but the entrees were sort of flat. I think apps and cocktails may be the way to go. The service, wow did it suck. Talk about a guy to cool for the room. While the service was not bad, this guy did not go out of his way to do anything besides the basics and when he did, he made it seem like you should be honored. When I go back I will just stand at the bar. Go for the cocktails and music.

I randomly found Flatiron Room through the internet although I've worked in that area for three years. I found out they only opened a year ago.
The atmosphere was amazing and there was a live band that played Frank Sinatra and other similar songs. The singer was awesome!
If you are a whiskey, scotch person this is the place for you! They had 8-10 pages dedicated to their whiskey and scotch selections. I am a huge wino and they had few wines to choose from (all priced at $55/bottle)..I wish they had more of a variety especially when it came to price.
This venue is on the pricier side...this would not be my usual weekend hangout but it was fun to go and experience.

Food was very good. Went with my cousin who was visiting from out of town and had never been to NYC before. He was blown away.
Had the cheese board and meatballs which were fantastic. Live band was excellent and at the perfect noise level. Staff was attentive and checked in frequently.
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
Went with friends to reconnect. The food was tasty and the server attentive. We sat through portions of both jazz groups. The latter had a velvety voice that wrapped you like a hug. We enjoyed the atmosphere and our time together.

I have been there twice and would go again anytime ! The place is awesome ! The food is good nd music great!
