Amazing food, amazing live jazz musicians, amazing service. The place is an easy five-star rating. Friday nights are busy and lively, Sunday nights are more quiet and romantic. The atmosphere of the place is great for both.

We came for a birthday brunch on a Sunday and had a great time. Fabulous cocktails, great food and great live jazz. The service was a bit slow, but the staff were friendly and attentive and the ambiance was nice, so we weren’t all that upset about the wait for food. We sat by the fireplace. Which was the perfect spot!

Love everything about the restaurant except the wine list is truly awful. Very limited selections and very overpriced. It would keep us from coming more frequently if it isn’t improved. Otherwise, a great experience.

My brand new fiance and I ate dinner here to celebrate our engagement that happened earlier that day and had a great experience. They hooked us up with a private table that still had a good view of the band. The Saturday night live band was energetic and great to listen to. The food was unmatched. I wish I could eat that steak every night. Drinks were top notch as well.

I picked this restaurant for a birthday dinner for a friend. We were a party of 4. Based on the other reviews that said the jazz bands did not inhibit conversation, I thought this would be great for not only listening to live music but to also converse easily with my friends BUT this was not the case. On this Wednesday night the singer was belting it out of the microphone like this was a large stage performance - we strained to have a conversation. If she didn't use the mic or if she toned down her singing for the mic, it would have been fine. Too bad as the service was great as were the drinks. The Burgers were very good. So if you don't care about talking, this is a fine place.

Finally, a venue with excellent jazz and good food! Four of us had brunch this Sunday. It was a quiet day but everything about Fine & Rare was wonderful. Especially highly recommended are the specialty drinks, and the corn meal pancakes with pork belly. A great way to relax on a Sunday, but we'll be back during the week as well.

We were put right next to the stage, so our experience might have been a bit louder than other tables/booths. But the music was really good! The food and cocktails were very yummy too! Definitely recommend trying this place.

Special menu for thanksgiving, it was good but the pasta was a bit over done and the dessert a little bit too big.

Nice and friendly staff, unfortunately the welcoming wasn’t the best, I was told in a not very friendly way that they didn’t have a table for me because I was alone instead of saying that my place was in the bar. I had spoken to someone on the phone about it earlier. Bad attitude really

Live music was great. Our first time in NYC and I wanted to surprise my wife. They missed our order (just a cheese table) so they give the one they bring incorrectly. Also the wine ordered was not the one we choose, but because it was a glass we had the surprise at the time to have the bill. Perhaps next time we will go to the bar, not in a table because they kept waiting us to order something for dinner, but we just wanted to listen to good music.

Really did not like the fact that I had called several times to get an earlier reservation but was told they were fully committed. I showed up at my original reservation time about 20 min early in hopes of getting seated earlier, and was told that the table would be ready in 5 min. Walked by my reserved and unoccupied table and hostess refused to seat us until our reservation time despite the seats being open which was totally ridiculous given the fact that there were open tables and no other parties waiting to be seated.
