    We live in NC and came to NY for my wife’s birthday. I researched venues with fine food and jazz and chose Fine &amp; Rare. The evening was sensational starting with the courtesy of its manager and wait staff. Everything was pitch perfect. My thanks for making it a wonderfully memorable birthday celebration!

    This restaurant is great. Took my wife there for our anniversary. The food was great (best bacon I've ever had), and the live music was entertaining. They made our night memorable. We will be going back soon!

    Went to F &amp; R for a birthday celebration. Great food, ambience, and live music, but our experience was completely ruined by our server Ray. Ray tricked us into ordering a dessert "on the house" for the birthday celebration, then refused to remove it from our bill. When confronted, Ray walked back on his words and refused to admit he made us this dessert offer. This is very dishonest and deceitful, and we rightfully refused to leave a tip. I have no issue paying for a dessert to help someone celebrate their birthday, but I do not like being tricked into ordering one. I'd imagine you'd probably get a better experience if you have a different server, but I will not be returning to this place again.

    This is a fantastic place for a "special night out." The service was fantastic, the food delicious and overall atmosphere superb. The musical talent was really great (we saw two acts that night). I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting New York City. The staff also did a treat job accommodating food allergies and aversions for our dinner.

    We went specifically to see a jazz band and they did not disappoint. One of the highlights of this visit. Ordered the cheese/charcuterie and it was okay, didn't love the meat. It was good, just nothing to rave about. I would go back.

    From the website descriptions - I expected more. I rated good because it was ok. For a place that presents itself as a cocktail experience, they could do more than a three ring binder for the cocktails list - organize them by liquor type - highlight or rotate specials - encourage experimentation - hand out fancy printed cards - I wanted to get excited about my choices; and add a regular place to my drinking/dining spots. The food was ok - I had the NY Strip which was a little tough (the table shook when I cut it) but tasty enough. Nothing really stood out food wise. This is a great setting and could with some effort go from good to great.

    Great place! My only feedback is, our table was the last booth near the door. Thus, a large pillar was obstructing some of the view of the band (which was fantastic). Also, one of the diner’s steak was a little undercooked. Having said all that, those things would not deter us from returning. Had a great evening!

    We specifically invited to this restaurant for a jazz performance. But, when we arrived there was no show at all. We were told that there is no performance at these hours. Why on the site do not update show times and days, why before we sat down to eat we did not update us on the show. In conclusion, an expensive price without consideration.

    Overall we were really disappointed with this place. We wanted to experience fine dining on a visit to New York and this was one of the first places that popped up when searching ! There was only outdoor seating available which was fine because that was made clear to us before hand, but there was little ambiance outside with no music and just sounds of passing traffic .. we told the waiter what kind of wine we liked and asked for his recommendation .. he basically ignored what what we described and just pointed out to the most expensive wine on the menu which I thought was pretty rude .. when it came to the food it was the exact same again the waiter just suggested the most expensive thing again … seriously ?? The crab cakes for starter was nice but the lobster ravoilei for mains was very disappointing .. it literally consisted of 5 big pieces of ravioli which could of contained anything inside .. it just tasted like tomato mush .. something you could muster up yourself for about $2 in 2 minutes ..definitely did not taste any lobster .. my partner ordered a kale salad and it was well.. literally a big plate of kale with a few croutons thrown in for fun… very one dimensional and bland .. she had chicken for mains which was tasty but heavy on the pallet. we were getting kind of fed up and didn’t bother with desert .. overall it was a disappointing experience with rude waiters and overpriced food for what it was . The inside looked very nice and the band seemed good I thought maybe they could of had the music set up outside on speakers so we could hear the band from inside.

    Fine and Rare. Hot or miss depending upon live music . All our seafood entrees were not fresh and smelled and tasted old . Stay away from any seafood on their menu. Great place for drinks and desert only based upon who is playing live music .

    Went for the Mother's Day brunch recently. Had a runny lump crab omelet. Not so great. The cerviche app was good. The vegan tirametsu was not so great. The band was very talented but only played very Olde Timey music from around the turn of the century, circa 1900. Also not so great after a while. Maybe I'll go for an overpriced dinner one day and see how that works out. Good ambiance though and nice staff.

    Ate in a rainy evening in the patio outside which was warm and quiet. Missed the jazz atmosphere inside but was able to go for a drink inside later. Was glad I could have a conversation with my party before! Limited deserts, had chicolate layered cake, which I found disappointing, particularly sauce.

    This is a great spot. All three times I’ve been, it’s been pretty good. The only downside is the grumpy hostess who would clearly rather be anywhere else, and the other woman who isn’t a server but interacts with the tables in an odd and often off-putting way. Cheer up! It’s a fun place… the server was great though. One other note… we got there early twice and were seated at tables with poor side views of the stage. We really love jazz and asked if we could have seats closer to the center of the stage so we could enjoy the musicians more. They said it wasn’t possible despite many open tables. When those reservations finally arrived, it was couples who talked loudly and didn’t even look up at the musicians once. What a shame for the musicians and the people who were actually there to enjoy their performances! If patrons ask to be closer to the music-take that as a sign that they’re actually there to be a part of the jazz experience, not take away from it!
