The service was the worst I had experienced in New York City.

The waitress was rude and inconsistent. The drink order took over 20 minutes to arrive. The wine was such poor quality we had to send it back. The meal arrived before the appetizers. There were four of us, and the fourth person's meal arrived 20 minutes aftter hte first three. For $175 per person, I would expect better service.

This place was awful! The food was horrible. I had beef Wellington that I asked for medium rare, it came out well done and like stew meat! One of my guests had the duck which was tough and tasteless. Hors d'oeuvres were being passed around but our table kept getting skipped. Wine selection was terrible and expensive. The wait staff was totally uninterested in being helpful. I asked for my water glass to be refilled, the busboy took my glass anyway and then finally someone came with a pitcher of water and we had no glasses! We were there on New Year's Eve, had a fixed price of $175 with 20% tip added on automatically, so I guess they figured they'd get their tip no matter what and didn't need to be nice or helpful. Terrible place!

Very Good duck. Beef Wellington was rather dry. Shelf wines were $$$ But for New Years Eve it was worth it and the Jazz show was also good. Of note... passes were needed to enter 51 and Broadway the Club was very good and timely in its correspondence and instructions with confirmation... the location is right next to the Stardust on Broadway

 (Phoenix)·Dined on December 30, 2012

Music was great but that has no real reflection on the club itself. We had a good time listening to the music. We have been to tons of Jazz clubs and Comedy clubs across the country. This one by far was the most disappointing. It was stuffy, the tables and seats were so close in proximity it was uncomfortable to eat. The price point was higher than the quality of venue and food. The show was great though the venue needs a massive update and re-haul. There is definitely work that needs to be done here also with the training of the staff they seem to all be confused as to what was going on as if this was their first show.Though I can say one thing, They has a respectable wine list.

The food was pretty good for a jazz club. The service is not great, mostly because they cram in so many tables. Loved the entertainment, although when you book through OpenTable they don't tell you it is a $35 cover per person on top of everything else. Good wine list and very nice people. It is worth it to check it out. I would recommend and I will return often.

Iridium is a great jazz club, but I try only to go when the musicians playing there aren't playing anywhere else in town because it's become quite expensive lately. That said, it's one of the better clubs in New York, by far, because the food is very good, the servers are great, and, of course, the most important part, the music, is absolutely outstanding. My only issue is the prices, but in this economy I guess it's what they've had to do to deal with the changes. Overall, though, it's a great spot. You'll often see some of the heaviest jazz cats hanging out just to hear their colleagues, and for good reason. The sound system was designed by Les Paul, and the soundman there is also really good. They constantly draw the best talent.

I've been to Iridium many times, so there're no surprises. You don't go here for the cuisine, but it's passable for burgers, junkie deserts, etc. The acoustics are as good as you could expect and there are no real bad views. If you can, get a table on the upper level center facing the stage. Depending on the act it's an excellent venue for live music.

We went to the Iridium for the jazz more than the food. But since there is a minimum in addition to the cover charge, we ordered dinner. The food is surprizingly good for a club that's more about the music (which was great). The man in front of us waiting to get in kindly gave us earplugs which we were glad to have because the volume was beyond comfortable without them. There were two sets and another group at midnight so you have less than 2 hours at your table. Be early. The club was not very organized at seating people who came close to 8:00 so we stood in line for quite a while.

Excellent Jazz club! Seating is great wherever you are and the atmosphere was most enjoyable - very similar to a comedy club environment as far as interior setup. All employees were very kind and courteous and service was excellent - a well oiled machine! Ten stars!! Price was also quite a bargain.

I took my boyfriend to Iridium Jazz Club for his birthday, and we loved it! The food was great, the service was good, and the entertainment was excellent! We went on a Monday night when Les Paul Gibson's band played because my boyfriend is a big fan of guitar music and he himself is a guitar player as well, so I thought he'd appreciate it more. And he certainly did! Moreover, the food was really delicious! Our steak dinner was juicy and fulfilling, but most surprising was the appetizer; the calamari was so light and fresh that we ordered 2 plates! All in all, going to Iridium Jazz Club was a good decision. The price was a bit hefty at the end of the night, but the experience made it worth our while!

I reserved a table through Open Table. When we arrived the hostess confirmed our reservation and since we had informed her it was our anniversary she sat us at a table right near the stage. Then she brought two glasses of champagne! We were made to feel like celebs! The food was great, the service was great! The entertainment was great! Since I visit NYC often, I plan to return on a regular basis! We Love Iridium!
