Went for a romantic date night & another time with friends. Great drinks, bands that play are fun & energetic. Amazing atmosphere for a really fun night.
Sat at a table for the date night & stood by the bar with friends, both a great way to enjoy the place.
Highly recommend.

On the expensive side, but that’s what you pay for a classy restaurant with good live music. Wait staff are all excellent, food is great albeit slightly expensive, and the ambience is perfect. The band was great, and they even have a coat check. Will definitely come back here. Don’t forget to tip the coat check clerk!

The price fixe for Valentine’s Day was annoying because it limited our choices
The music was bad but was getting better
The restaurant didn’t allow for a later reservation but was half empty so that was annoying, too- I believe the whole thing was just getting started when we were being ushered out of the door

This was Valentine's Day so there only was a prix fixe menu. I know it was to simplify the kitchen but the duck was ducky. The waiter was very accommodating and the music was fabulous.

Wonderful night at Fine and Rare! Definitely expect to spend a fair amount on dinner, but well worth it. Service was perfectly timed and the cocktails were delicious. The jazz band had a good number of sets so you could enjoy both table conversation and the music during your time at FR.

Wonderful music, relaxing ambience, great cocktails, engaging and attentive waitress...Party of 3..however the au jus was extremely tough and overly salty. The chicken was blah and the salmon was just okay. The surf and turf appetizers was perfect.

I loved the ambiance. The band was great. Service was good but unfortunately the food was ok.
We had a menu from the NYC restaurant week, and it was not terrible. Starter was good but the entré was not so good. Pity that they have tried to make some savings, it would be a good way to let people experience their food at affordable price so they want to come back later. They didn’t think long term

Tried because it was a good restaurant week opportunity. Menu was acceptable with 3 choices of appetizer, entree and dessert.
Food was excellent and the service was perfect.
In previous years, I have found eating during restaurant week is sub par, but not here.

Live music was just calm and low key enough to add to the lovely ambiance, especially since we sat by the fireplace.
Thank you F&R!

Fine and Rare was a very nice restaurant with a nice ambiance. The food was delicious, the music was great though a bit loud that you couldn't hear the person next to you. The only issue I had was with the drinks and appetizers: The drinks had barely any alcohol and tasted like juice and the appetizers weren't even big enough for 1 person to enjoy; let alone 6 people. The price on both was ridiculous for what they were serving.

The mains and dessert were very good: pasta Bolognese was so creamy and delicious, the tomahawk steak was cooked to perfection with the sauces on the side. The chicken was juicy and seasoned very well. The sphere was of course very fun to watch and eat, the toffee bread pudding was okay, nothing special and was extremely soft, the eggnog crème brulee was very yummy and different from the usual.

Both the food and the service were exceptional. My only disappointment was how they basically kicked us out at 2:30 (they close to set for dinner). Would have liked to feel less rushed.

My wife and I went to Fine and Rare on a Thursday night during restaurant week for date night. The food was great! We had three courses each and shared almost everything (my wife wouldn’t share more than one bite of her bread pudding). The burrata, scallops, chicken, pork chops, creams brûlée, truffle fries, and banana pudding were all delicious. Cocktails were also great, with my favorite being the smoking old fashioned with a maple smoke.

The ambiance was made complete by a very knowledgeable and friendly server and a great jazz trio playing live. The band played well-known songs restyled and perfect for evening dining.

I highly recommend Fine and Rare-only “negative” is even with restaurant week prices, food and cocktails add up quickly! That being said, you get what you pay for and I will be back!

We came here for Restaurant Week and were very much looking forward to it. I thought my peppermint beet salad was okay- it needed more dressing. My pasta was also just okay- I guess I don’t prefer sweet sauce. My son however had the quinoa salad which was delicious and the roast chicken with mashed potatoes which was excellent. I guess I just ordered the wrong dishes. The service was good as was the ambiance.

Great ambiance and service, there was a live jazz band playing which created the vibe but also allowed for one to still be able to have a conversation without yelling over each other. The gin cocktail was phenomenal (both taste and presentation) and the 3-course menu for restaurant week was very enjoyable!
