Outstanding music & great food
With Randy Weston performing it was a special occasion. The delicious food and excellent service in addition to the great concert made it an outstanding experience. And the non- meat choices are better than in most vegetarian restaurants.

Jazz Standard is about the music, really--but surprisingly decent food (BBQ and burgers especially), and more importantly, the service is consistently friendly and accommodating. The staff goes out of its way to make patrons happy and are quite efficient, given the fact that they have to work quietly and unobtrusively while a performance is going on.

Satisfying Ribs and Jazz
Quality reigns -- Food was a cut above and distinctive, service was attentive and unobtrusive and the live jazz filled the room, moved us to special time and place. It made for a memorable evening.

Good food and great jazz
Had a great time at Jazz Standard. Cover fee was 30$, which is quite standard for such a place. Had the chance to listen to an awesome trio. Food is not extremely elaborate but is flavorful and at a fair price. Service is attentive. Good wine list. Arrive at least 30 minutes before the time of your reservation if you want good seats! And dress casually!

The Jazz Standard is primarily a music venue! Therefore "Question Number Two" does not offer the applicable answers!
I highly recommend the Jazz Standard for the following reasons:
The room has good acoustics. The room has been designed to give almost every table a sight line to the stage. The wait staff is sweet, and respectful of the fact that the crowd is there to listen to music.

Great food before the music
The food is always so good; whether you choose the ribs or the veggie burger you'll be happy; the mint julep is great; and then we heard some wonderful music.

Second Time Around......Still Great
We had a fantastic experience, being it was our second trip to JS. The main reasons we pick the Jazz Standard/Blue Smoke is for the great jazz and great food and they are both well worth the trip. Also the stage can be seen from anywhere in the club and the Staff are very helpful and attentive. We will definitely return again.

Reserve your table ahead of time
Living in NYC, this was our third visit to this wonderful jazz club. I have found most Jazz clubs in NYC to be very small, with tables barely big enough. But the Jazz Standard is a pleasantly intimate environment without feeling like your neighbor is sitting in your lap. The club holds just over 100 people and every seat is within 25 feet of the band, many much closer. However, some tables have more direct views than others. I highly recommend reserving your table beforehand or you may be left with an obstructed view. I like sitting a little farther away (drums and horns can be loud!) and at the table that is slightly elevated. But the people sitting 2 feet away certainly looked content. Highly recommend the baby back ribs!

Great club, great food
Have been here many times, they have jazz every night with first rate artists. The room is nice, sound is really good. In addition, the BBQ/Southern menu, which it shares with Blue Smoke, the restaurant upstairs, is excellent. We really enjoyed our dinner. The waiter was very friendly and helpful as well. Great place.

We went to see Gregory Porter, which by the way was a fantastic show. This was our third time at the Jazz Standard and I still say the staff, the food, the service and the overall ambience was outstanding. We are definitely looking forward to coming back very soon.

Jazz Club + Blue Smoke = landmark
Jazz Standard draws some really great talent to play, the acoustics were good and if you get in early you can pick your own prime seating (first come, first serve, arrive 30 minutes early for the best seats). I thought the food they served from blue smoke downstairs was average, but I visit the Blue Smoke in Battery Park often enough and I know they're capable of more, this may have been an off night. Also, great bourbon/rye/whiskey/beer menu. Not unreasonably priced for a captive audience.

NYC Jazz Spot
Jazz still lives in NYC and in particular at the Jazz Standard. Plus, a menu offering many of your barbecue favorites. So, if you like your jazz with some good barbecue, the Jazz Standard is the spot.

Wonderful jazz in a quiet atmosphere. The audience is properly oriented, and the show is not disturbed by the service. Excellent food and service! A+ !

Very good food and excellent music. What a fun night! Even if every seat is a good seat, its worth it to get there when the doors open to choose your best vantage point. Great, great fun!

Great Jazz Great BBQ Great Service
4 of us had the best time at the Jazz Standard. We had hush puppies, and mac and cheese, and barbeque. The Kansas City Ribs were really good, the brisket also. The sweet potato wedges were the best but it was all about the mashed potatoes. They were to die for, I am still thinking about how delicious they were. The service was perfect. They had a decent selection of beer and I loved the hard cider. Great place, I can't wait to go back.

Come for the show, but...
eat before you get there. Myself and my party enjoyed everything about this place, except that the food was forgettable. The only thing that made an impression was the beer, wine, and the dessert sampler...and of course the show! So come hear the music, but dont plan on any culinary mastery.

very strange event- the waiter dropped the wrong order at my table- came back about three minutes later asked of we touched the food took it away and apologized- disappeared for 1 minute then clearly dropped the same food at the table next to us- both my party and the party next to us say this and were astounded- the waiter was called out on this and the took the food away and brought them a new order, otherwise one of the best jazz venues and bbq restaurants in NY.
