I can’t say enough great things about this spot! It was hands down the best meal I have ever had! If you don’t like this place you should just stay home... I wish I could eat here every night or at least steal the chef and have them live at my home. Worth every penny!

But noise at the bar was so loud, people couldn't listen to the good jazz that was played there. A pitty!

Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer as we had to leave for an early play. The ambience was beautiful, the live jazz music was top notch and the food was amazing. Not to mention the unique bar choices and lovely service.

I had the most amazing hand-crafted Old Fashioned which came with its own actual wood smoke trapped in the glass. It added a fantastic twist to my favourite cocktail and has effectively ruined all of the others for me because nothing will surpass it. The service was wonderful and we had a great night. The live music was good but not intrusive and I could still have a conversation. I even returned the next day to enjoy a couple more of the cocktails as there were two woods I did not try the night before and the welcome was great and I enjoyed chatting with the barman and restaurant manager. On the downside, I had the steak which was well cooked but overall my meal was too salty but I would not hold this against them and it did not detract from the overall experience. I'm sure it was a one-off mistake and I would definitely go back there to eat again.

Hostess remembered we were celebrating a birthday (as noted on online reservation)

Server was excellent & attentive.

Manager checked on us - twice! And even thanked us for coming in.

Food was excellent - high quality and fresh. Happily accommodated my requests to alter menu item.

Live jazz was a treat.

THE ABSOLUTE WORST EXPERIENCE!
Our second visit. Have also been to their other restaurant. Made a reservation 6 weeks prior to celebrate a friend's milestone birthday. Requested a banquette which faces the stage. Was met in haste at our timely arrival and hurried into a far corner table. Politely asked a manager what the story was, as one banquette was empty, and she said the owner is coming later, and the other two banquettes where also reserved. I was referred to the head manager. He then told me “those seats are given under the discretion of the manager” So I said, “You are the manager, use some discretion!” They sat us at the open banquette,. The ladies ordered martinis and were told their favorite vodka was not available, but they had a great Russian vodka instead. Turns out that these small cocktails were $32 each! The first manager watched us the whole time, checking her watch as she walked by constantly asking how everything was, no doubt to hurry us along. Also caught an actual eye roll! The Seafood Tower at $180 contained unshucked shellfish and previously frozen lobster. As we started the main course the first manager said she would need to move us over because the owners was coming!- how unprofessional! We were moved and then a few minutes later she came back and said it’s 8:12 and we need this table soon. I walked over to the manager and asked for the check. Seeing my disgust she said she wanted to make things right. Too late! They came over with “birthday desert” and wanted to buy us a drink. The head manager came by as well and their condescending manner at this point was causing my blood to boil! They took a few dollars off the bill, offered us compensated return visit, and another drink at the bar, but this all meant nothing. We did not come for a deal, discount or free drink. We came to celebrate a friend’s milestone birthday. The management staff blew it big time!!! We will never return, nor send anyone else. The ownership should be ashamed!

Just had a WONDERFUL Saturday brunch/lunch at Fine & Rare. This is the only place I know where you can get a great brunch and jazz, eat great food, enjoy wonderful service and still hear yourself talk. Brunch options are creative and delicious (The "Fine & Rare Sphere" is cool to watch and enjoy). Deserts are not to be missed. Service is warm and attentive without being overbearing. Suggestions are spot on. (Feel free to vary the listed sides; they are flexible and there to please).

I always go for the Short Rib Burger when I haunt Fine & Rare. It's one of the best burgers in the city. The wood decor takes you out of the city & the whiskey selection is on point. Great, knowledgeable staff. Caught Broadway Brassy & The Brass Knuckles there on a Friday Night. Beautiful voice & talent which only adds to the charm of the place.

Despite having a reservation and calling ahead to confirm when we were running a bit late, when we were arrived we were seated to a restaurant that was clearly at the end of the night. We overheard a grumpy server complaining the kitchen was closed despite being assured that it would remain open. They then announced that if we were willing to order immediately then they’d reopen the kitchen. Of course we just left immediately as this is NEVER the way to be greeted.

Great food, cocktails and service. The music is great - but too loud for the small size of the venue, at least the band that was playing while we were there. Once the horns and trumpets get started you can’t hear the person you’re there with. It’s like sitting next to the speakers at a concert - I’m also a tad sensitive to extreme sound and being seated directly in the front of the stage with horns blaring for a few hours set my head and ears off for the next couple of days. Just keep that in mind if you’re sensitive like me, a seat off to the side might be best.

We love this place for the excellent jazz, availability of obscure spirits, wonderful service and food. The prices, however, for food and beverage at all levels are ridiculously inflated. I would much rather pay a straightforward music charge than a $25/glass of chardonnay. And we paid the crazy prices and wanted to tip the band anyway and they didn't even have a tip jar!

Very disappointing. They only had 2 or 3 of the items on the menu and offered a list of replacement items. The food was good, but not the choices we would have made had there been a full menu. Like many folks, we look on line in advance and expect that most of the menu is actually available. Also disappointing was the entertainment. Clearly not up to par. Actually, I was really surprised, because we had such great experiences there before.

Decided to come here for a post engagement dinner and Fine & Rare was amazing across the board. They have an impressive selection of almost whiskey you could imagine. You name it and they most likely have it. We ordered (and would highly recommend) the Seafood Paella, Grilled Salmon, and Pork Chops (special for that week). The band even talked to my fiancee's mom before we got there and played a song for us when we arrived, which was a wonderful gesture!

Live band playing music was great, and even sit right in front of them it wasn't too loud to talk over dinner. Food was amazing, don't need to say more here. And the alcohol list went on and on, you'll find something you like.
