We did not stay for dinner. The background music was very loud and when the Italian trio began to perform they were awful. The singer was laughable. Our table was noisy and tight and though they eventually offered to move us, we decided to leave.

Great music and night out with the girls. There were shortages (no steak, no au gratin potatoes, limited availability on wines we wanted (on the lower end $ at approx. $100/bottle).

Sea Bass was outstanding however, as were the oysters.

It literally took them 85 mins to bring our main course. This was the worst delay I have endured in any restaurant. And the funny thing is they served our appetizers in 15 mins and then main course didn’t arrive for another 70 mins.

As usual, excellent service, great food, wonderful cocktails. Only issue was that the music was a little too loud.. It was great, but just a little OTT.

We booked two months in advance for Thanksgiving as we are from Hawaii. I emailed re a good table with no reply. Our table was behind a pillar. Didn’t expect, however when you see free tables you wonder. Food, not good. Three times to correct a filet? And yes they used the same filet. Number one rule - never use the same food if its undercooked. We were rushed out, by mistake and the dinner cost us $800. Never, never again. The most overpriced and overrated restaurant. Thank you for a hopefully forgettable experience. The exception was our server who was incredible, hence the generous tip. Hopefully he gets all of it.

Overall a good experience. Service was a bit slow at times, but to be expected on Thanksgiving. The portions were smaller than expected for a prix-fixe (for example, we got one plate of veggies to split, but they were small even for one person). The tables were very close together, which was maybe a bit surprising given COVID. That said, about what I had in mind and overall enjoyable.

We felt rushed and the food and atmosphere was ~ average at best. My wife and I picked this restaurant to celebrate our Anniversary. The reviews mentioned great food and live entertainment. However a few hours before we our reservation we received a call noting that the Live music would be ending at 9pm (our reservations were for 10PM following a show). We elected to stay with our reservation but were given the option to cancel without penalty - this would have been our first clue.

We arrived and were greeted warmly. With our drink order taken by a waiter that didn’t introduce himself, we were informed that he’d be leaving for the evening. Another person soon appeared and delivered our drinks and took our order. The menu was simple with only one steak listed and limited seafood options. The ambience was eclectic (not what we’d expected for a place offering live jazz music). Soon a 3rd person arrived with our food. My wife’s steak was average, a bit gristly and my crab cakes were good (not great, not bad).

About 20 minutes into our meal we were asked about desert and were told the kitchen would be closing soon - but “take your time”. We did have coffee but elected to get desert elsewhere- after all it’s New York and options were limitless.

In summary the words I’d use would be “average and rushed”. With all the options available, we’ll pick elsewhere.

My girlfriend and I came up from Delaware to celebrate her birthday. I was on my own to research and find place that I thought would be fun, romantic, memorable, and not "over-the-top"expensive. I am 100% confident when I say Fine and Rare is all of those things! We had multiple cocktails, a glass of wine, a round of appetizers, great entrees, and a wonderful dessert to top off the evening. The live music gives you a wonderful experience and the way you feel in this rustic, American cuisine restaurant will set the tone for any good relationship. 10/10 would recommend!

Side note: as great as the food and environment was, the server was really nice but not as warm and welcoming as I think a restaurant such as this should be. When you're spending $250-300 for two people, I want my server to be prepared to put more of a front of having a good time with us at least, even if he/she is having a rough night. All in all, I would come back in a heartbeat and recommend this place to friends!!!

The young lady that greeted me was not the most pleasant initially. When I was seated it was freezing where I was. I didn’t feel like there was a lot of great food options. The steak I ordered was good. Overall it okay and over priced

I really loved this restaurant and didn't know what to expect! The cocktails are AMAZING and huge selection of wonderful spirits. The food is pretty casual but delicious and the live entertainment was fabulous. I would recommend a both front and center of the stage to take in the full experience!

If you are looking for a classy establishing with great service, live music, deliciously prepared food and crafted cocktails, look no further. You will shell out a little extra, but every penny is worth it. The cocktails to start were delicious, and so was the appetizers (Octopus, and the Salad), as well as the 32oz Tomahawk Steak my wife and I shared. Rare and Charred, for that I have no words. Want a classy night out? I definitely recommend this place.

To keep it short and sweet, this place was worth visiting and I would most likely come back in the future.
The performance on stage is what made the visit special, and it set the tone/ambience of the time spent here.
The drinks were good.
My only minuscule down is that when we ordered the 32oz tomahawk steak and it came slightly more on the rare side opposed to medium rare, the waitress asked if we would have liked it to be cooked more, but we declined because it was still delicious.
