The place to be for a great dining experience and a live show!
Thu–Sat 6:00 pm–1:00 am
118 between St Nicholas and 8th Ave and 122 and St Nicholas are the closest
We had a wonderful night! We saw Solomon Hicks and it was literally the best date night my boyfriend and I have had in over a year. We absolutely loved the music and the venue. The host let us choose a great little booth in the corner so we could have some privacy, but we weren't too far away at all and could still enjoy everything. The food was delicious, but especially the drinks were great!
Thanks for providing a nice, romantic evening! Couldn't be more grateful!
Minton's provided an experience I will always treasure. The friendly staff and the great atmosphere were the first indications the night would go well. The food was so delicious! But what made the night unforgettable was Jeffery Miller's Jazz Band. Jeffery's original composition Black and Blue flowed through the musicians into and out of their instruments like human volcanic eruptions. Chris Bittner was one with his saxophone like no player I have ever seen before. I felt my soul tremble by the conclusion of Black and Blue.
We loved it there - food was great, service is top notch. We wish thr performance was longer than one hour - at least 1.5
The introductrory film presentation is far too literal and seems to be design for the very mainstram audience with contradicts by essence the jazz and connoisseurs feel the place should be cultivating.
service food and music were very good but the soul wasn't there
The service, band, food, and ambience were great!!
Will always return to Minton's because the music is fantastic and the food and drinks add to a lovely experience. You pay per music set, but you're also supporting local artists. Do the right thing!
A throwback to old Harlem. Great jazz and great service. The food was great and them overall atmosphere was relaxing and courteous.
We wanted to experience live jazz whilst visiting New York from England.
We were not disappointed. The food was first class and the music and jamming session was amazing. A must visit
Reasonable, but expensive food. Very good live jazz. Very good, attentive service.
there is a reason Mintons is a classic jazz nightclub. it's great. the band and singers were first rate as usual. we were there for the early show. wonderful
Great night ! Great Music !
Food was good, but really , the highlight is the band !
Nice cozy atmosphere, me and my date enjoyed the food drink and entertainment. Will definitely visit again
Overall this place was good, the down side was the music. I personally like a jazz set that jams and takes you into the instruments. This was boring in my opinio.
Beautiful live jazz music, clean, very good food, beautiful ambience. A place to go!
Great place for world class live jazz with great drinks and a traditional American menu.
Minton's is all that and then some! My server, Zambele, was gracious. I love the ambiance of Minton's. This is why I moved from Brooklyn to Harlem. Because it's black and I love jazz. Peace Minton's ! ✌✌✌👍👍👍👊👊👊
We selected this restaurant to hear live jazz, and they did not disappoint in that regard. Our party ordered two menu items that were no longer offered by the restaurant. Instead of the waiter telling us that and suggesting other options, he (or the kitchen) substituted other menu items. Very strange and indicative of a lack of communication and respect for the diners. I suggest updating your menus and better training for the waitstaff.
Awesome music scene. Good food. Very nice and alert waiters
I came to see Laurin Talese who is always outstanding, unfortunately the dining experience wasn't comparable to the performance. The cocktail I had taste quite medicinal and wasn't good at all. I purchased a bottle of still water and the service was lacking so much that I poured my water the entire night. Was rarely checked up on so not got to order food. The pace is beautiful but the service doesn't match it's atmosphere at all.
Historic location for jazz and great food. Would like to visit it again.
SUPERB fish! Both the branzino and the red snapper were excellent
First time at Minton and definitely won’t be my last time. The music is LIVE and full of energy! It was out Anniversary and they have great service!
Loved the food, service, and music
The Cecil salad was amazing. I dreamt about it last night and awakened to the memory of it this morning I'm probably returning to Minton's later on in the week to have it again. Aah so, so good!!
Staff great in general
Waiter unfamiliar with menu
No cornbread? Why on menu?
We love this place!
Alan harris set amazing!
The music was great and the venue is elegant. However the food smd service were disappointing. We have been to Minton’s many times over the past few years and this time I was left questioning whether I will return. In the past the food was excellent. This time it was terrible. We waited over an hour for our entrees and they were quick cooking items. The salad was an odd mixture of ingredients including canned peaches over wilted mesclun mix. The chicken pieces were extremely small thin and cooked to the consistency of leather. The filet mignon was not much better. Perhaps the problem is restaurant week and the kitchen was overwhelmed. The menu lacks focus and tried to do too many different types of food. The old Cecil menu was better.
Enjoyed myself immensely — Allan Harris was delightful and your venue warm and embracing. Will be back, most certainly. Thank you!
A marvelous evening all around. Food, the show and the service were all first class! Can't wait to return!
It was a wonderful experience. Good Music with good food.
Eating at Minton’s was a beautiful experience. The Live music was great. I went with my parents and my hubby. We enjoyed the band. The service was great as well. The food had so much flavor and was beautiful.
I love this place every time I come. It’s amazing that something like this exists where you can see such incredible talent while eating Some of the best food in New York. If you have never been it is an experience like none other. Do yourself the favor!
This historic dinner club in Harlem is the perfect place to enjoy jazz and dinner. They share a kitchen with Cecil's Steak House next door and have the same menu. Food was first class.
Surprisingly good menu; best crab cake outside of Maryland, delicious lamb chops and mashed potatoes.
Great small venue for seeing live music.
We came to Minton's to celebrate a friend's birthday. What a joy the experience was! The menu was creative and delicious. We had the lamb chops, salmon and salad. The dessert was yummy too. The live jazz band was delightful. The service was superb. The atmosphere (ambiente) and art work was such that you immediately relaxed and knew that you were in a place with "history". Minton's is definitely a neighborhood gem.
Good experience, good food, great jazz
This place as extraordinary music and food. That’s why I keep going back. The porterhouse steak was delicious and I drooled over my friend’s paella.
It was the first time, but surly not the last if I‘ll ever come back to NY. Great service, good food and a wonderful atmosphere.
We loved our experience on a true vintage Harlem environment!
Great evening overall. Good food with a creative twist, lovely staff and excellent music. Good place to bring out of town guests.
The music was superb, as was the food. Brought friends here from out of town, and we all loved it.
