What a wonderful find in the heart of midtown. Only a few blocks from Times Square, a throwback to places gone by. The food was fantastic. The live jazz music performed by professional musicians gave an ambiance that made for super evening. The establishment itself has an aura and charm that only NYC can muster. Even in the waning time of the global pandemic we were treated to an amazing evening.

One hint, if you are going for the food, you can sit outside in their classy outdoor seating area. But if you really want to enjoy the music and the entire “Fine and Rare” experience, ask to sit inside. Trust me, you will love it.

I actually also wrote a review on YELP! Our experience was amazing here , the live jazz music was incredible our server Chris was awesome and also the buss boy! He was so attentive and so on point with everything ! Chris was very informative and knowledgeable about the menu! I ordered the salmon and it was good however seasoning was not there .. or at least not enough of it & I asked for skin to be crispy & it did not come out as such but other than that EVERYTHING was amazing ! Definitely will be coming back

Took my girlfriend out for her birthday.
Beautiful restaurant with live jazz performed right in front of you.
Great sound, not too loud making it easy to listen and talk at the same time.
Delicious steak and the burger was very tasty.
Drinks could have been a bit more generous.
Overall a wonderful night out.

Scallop Entree was good, nice presentation. Cheese board looks like they slapped kraft singles on a slate and they give you plastic forks to cut these large thin slices of cheese. Worst presentation of a cheese board I’ve seen. Absolutely insulting effort on the part of the chef.

I have walked by this place all the time but never walked in to see what it looked like. After seeing them do such a good job setting up their outdoor dining I decided to make a reservation (indoors for the live music). The food was better then expected and one of the juiciest steaks ever! The presentation was beautiful. The cocktail I had tasted so Fresh, and they even made a mocktail up for my date. The ambience was great and the service as well. Looking forward to coming back to try more things on the menu.

Our first dinner out since last year. It was wonderful service and the ambiance was perfect. We enjoyed the music and the food was delicious. Music was as you could still hold a nice conversation with your guest. Lovely place, what a surpise find. Which is perfect for the name. Definitely a revisit.

Beautiful, chic, upscale restaurant with amazing ambiance! Incredible drinks and delicious food! I'd recommend the Tomahawk steak (shared) with garlic potatoes and brussels. Cant go wrong with any of their whiskey drinks. Fine & Rare Mule (whiskey mule) was my favorite! (dessert was delicious too!)
Wait staff super friendly and knowledgeable. It's a beautiful place! Very high on my list and a definite MUST when in New York City.

We really liked the ambiance of Fine and Rare however the jazz was quite loud and we could barely hear each other. The 32oz tomahawk seems smaller than the strip steak which was a big disappointment.

It was my first dining at Fine & Rare, and I had a truly fine experience. The dining room is beautiful and the live music really adds to the ambience. My fig salad, scallops, chive mashed potatoes and chocolate cake were all just amazing. The service was also fast and efficient. A great place for a mature and memorable dining experience.

We dined in the outdoor area, which is one of the nicest I've ever seen and was warm and dry even on a chilly, rainy day. The food, drink, and service, as always, are spectacular. Worth traveling to check this place out.

One of the best dining experiences in NYC especially when Brian Newman and his band are playing on Saturday nights!
The drinks are definitely the highlight. Make sure you get the brownie sphere for dessert!

Have been here before and this special birthday/anniversary evening was very disappointing. Seated by the kitchen with my back to the stage and watching the wait staff go in and out of the kitchen all night. Terrible seats! Music was louder than ever before. Could barely hear our waiter or ourselves with masks off. Papardelle dish had barely and short rib meat and dishes should be renamed. We love to support jazz venues but won’t be back here on Sat. night.

This restaurant has it all! Great atmosphere, music, food. We had dinner and drinks on the couches by the fireplace. It was our first indoor dining since covid. They took our temperature when we arrived and there was plenty of space / social distance in the restaurant. Also service was amazing. You need to go here for dinner / drinks. Don’t think twice!

Chose this place to celebrate my husbands birthday. Our party included 22-69 year old family members. Everybody enjoyed this restaurant's atmosphere, attentive and friendly service, creative cocktails, delicious food and the outstanding musical performance of the Brian Newman Jazz trio. We'll be back another time.

Horrible evening!!! I’m a regular and I’ve never had a worse experience at a restaurant! From the first minute I sat down, I was rushed from your staff from start to finish! Sad to see you overbooking to the extent I’m rushed and failed as I will never be back. Terrible experience. Amazing how you push to sell every course on the menu and I can’t even finish my glass of wine as I’m told people are waiting. It was made clear that another ressie at 8:30pm and I had two hours but you’re alone in that experience. Never have I ever been so rushed throughout and couldn’t finish or enjoy. That is not an experience worthy of a cent of my money and will enjoy dining out elsewhere as you’ve ruined it in your haste to overbook!

Never a bad time at F & R, they make a great burger and all the other food is great. Their signature desert is a must for chocolate lovers. And the music is first rate. And for you mixologist the smoked old fashion is phenomenal.
