    Vibrato is a great choice for any special occasion. My husband and I celebrated our anniversary here. The staff provided outstanding service, the food was delicious, and the ambiance was so unique. They really went out of their way to make it a great night. We were seated at a very nice booth with an unobstructed view of the piano. They even brought out flowers and a special dessert. I would highly recommended the Vibrato.

    We went for Jazz. The lead artist was great, but some of the musicians were not up to the task of playing complicated jazz. The performance as a whole was not as hoped as a result. The burger was excellent but silly to add short ribs on top.....it's not needed, and gets lost. The martini lobster app had good quality, well cooked lobster but was in mayo. Mayo? How dated can you get? How about lemon or Yuzu and creme fraiche, a touch of heat or shiso leaf; why drown your food in mayo? They need a foodie overhaul to warrant such prices. Great atmosphere, great sound, good layout but will eat an app only or sit at the bar until they change lead chef or rethink.

    I went for the purpose of hearing Dmitry Matheny play. He and the Joe Bagg trio were enjoyable, but it would have been much better if there were not a constant roar of the crowd. It didn't matter whether they were playing or not, the noise level stayed the same. If you are going to advertise as a place for jazz devotees, consider advising the crowd on etiquette. The food was delicious, but again, it's not the main reason for which I would go here.

    I took my boyfriend to Vibrato for a big birthday this year. It was a Tuesday night, so the restaurant wasn't packed, but that actually made the experience feel more personal. I was expecting great music, and was not disappointed. What took me by surprise was how amazing the food and the service was! We both had rib-eye steaks and they were some of the best steaks I've ever had anywhere. If you've got a special event coming up and want to splurge a little for something really nice and memorable, you cannot go wrong with Vibrato.

    We took a friend as a thank you, and LOVED IT! The live cuban jazz was amazing, people were dancing in the aisles (I was dancing in my seat!)!!! The ambiance was fantastic, the food was excellent. The only negative was the wait time, I made reservations a month ahead, we arrived on time, yet it took at least 10 mins to be seated. Although very apologetic, my guest was a bit annoyed; however, the entertainment made up for it.

    Who expected great food at a jazz club; or really good service? Not me, that's for sure, so I was pleasantly surprised by how good both the food and service are at this vibrant jazz club atop Beverly Glen. This was my third time there in as many weeks, and there's been no let down in the quality. It's pricey to be sure, but worth every penny! I may not be back on a weekly basis - I'm not sure my wallet could sustain that, but I'll be back often.

    I was looking for a place to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. I wanted it to be a place with great live music and great food... I was not disappointed at all. When we arrived the immediately took us to our table. It was our first time and our server was able to explain everything and help us make our selection. The food was wonderful. Dessert just took the experience to another level. The entire experience was worth the $100+ meal for two.

    I took my Mom here for her 80 and then last Friday for her 82nd! It has become a favorite spot to go for a special occasion. The staff is great and the food amazing. My nephew had the veal Parm ..it was so tender and enormous. We dine early and there is a 2 piece jazz combo that adds to the atmosphere. I can't wait to go back!

    I came here to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. He is a foodie and super picky. He had the steak with whipped potatoes and mashed potatoes. He would have finished it had he not gotten so full. I let them know ahead of time that I was vegan and had a mushroom allergy - they made me my own pasta dish and it was amazing ! We split the market salad (sans cheese on mine) and he got a cute birthday cookie with ice cream. We had a wonderful experience and will definitely be back.

    We celebrated our anniversary here this past weekend. Food was great! We had a filet with an assortment of sauces, a twice baked potato and the shortribs. Everything was great, but the shortribs were the best! So yummy- just fell apart. They brought us flowers for our anniversary, plus they treated us so nicely. We definitely felt pampered. It is quite expensive, so we wouldn't come here every weekend, but for a special occasion, it was fantastic. Oh, and the music was great. Such a fun evening. We would come again just to sit in the bar and listen to the music as well.

    I took my boyfriend to Vibrato Grill for his birthday. From the time that we walked in, we were impressed with the overall ambiance and décor. I made the mistake by arriving too early before actual featured musician was scheduled to perform. However, prior to the featured performer, we were able to enjoy some wonderful music from the piano player and bassist. We started our night with 2 glasses of wine and the lamb lollipops (so delicious!). I order the scallops and my boyfriend order the braised short ribs for our entrees(both were delicious). We ended with the truffle chocolate cake. I found the price to be reasonable based on the location and no cover charge. We will definitely return for our next special occasion.

    The restaurant was beautiful and we enjoyed the live music. There were so many great choices on the menu. The grilled peaches with burrata and spinach empanadas appetizers were fantastic. Our entrees were cooked to perfection as ordered - the surf and turf special, mahi, mahi and the Gorgonzola filet. The desserts - Apple crisp with salted Carmel ice cream and the lemon tart with pistachio were delicious. We really enjoyed our experience at Vibrato and loved our server Tiffany. She was friendly and attentive, making sure we had everything we needed, from menu suggestions, to decanting our wine, to flowers and a special dessert for the birthday girl. Loved Vibrato and loved Tiffany!

    A great place to enjoy a special dinner occasion, with entertainment. The entrance is not as obvious, but the inside is awsome. The bar, stage, and seating areas are perfectly situated. Sound is well managed . Server is very accommodating and easy. The Wine list was too short. No White-Zinny? Wow. Chardonnay was smooth enough... but the goblet was only 25% full (like a taster)...hmm, for that price, it should have been half-full. The menu had lots of choices to enjoy. The King Salmon and the Kobe Burger was full of flavors, textures, beautifully arranged. Salute the Chef ! It was truly a dining experience. Yes, the price was a bit high, but that included the entertainment... so, we had a great time. Will plan to be back again :)

    This restaurant is a gem in many ways -- the decor is outstanding, the food very food, the people watching is most excellent, and, of course, the music is unmatched... But if you expect to have conversation with your meal, this is not the place for you. That might seem like a given to some, but it hadn't occurred to me that it would be impossible to hear each other while the musicians were on. Better to think of this place a great jazz concert venue where you will also happen to catch a lovely meal with small snippets of conversation during the evening.
