Fathers day dinner for a party of four. Tried some cocktails, Single Malts and Bourbon Explorer along with the cheese and cured meat combination. . All well presented and explained. The group had burger, 14 Ounces steak, Chilean Sea Bass and the Vegetarian Pasta. Feedback form the group was that all the entrees were excellent. Deserts were fabulous as well. All this with some jazz on the background. Overall great ambiance and service. Will return to taste more of the fine and rare.

Great! Tulum, old fashioned, and sugar cane drinks were great. The short rib pasta was delicious. 14 oz steak cooked medium was incredible. The burratta app was also great. Banana bread pudding was incredible. The jazz band was great ambiance was great overall pretty great! Only thing is I sat with my back to the band! But I sat next to my date to face the band and nobody seemed to mind ! Really great !! Sit indoors instead of outdoors !

Overall we had a really wonderful evening. We were able to get a table inside, which was nice as we were able to listen to the jazz. The food was fantastic, as was the service. Two things could have been better though - 1. The temperature inside was hotter than it was outside. By the end of the night, it was unbearable. 2. The wine prices are unreasonable. Hardly anything was under $100, and the markups were high, even by New York standards. Our $88 bottle of wine is only $20 in the store. Apart from that, it was wonderful and we will be returning.

Amazing drink menu and great service. They gave our group a free delicious dessert! Entrees are definitely expensive, but I think the drinks and ambiance make this place worth going to!

Extremely disappointing dinner at Fine & Rare last night. This had been one of our favorite restaurants in the past (pre-pandemic). Waiter was terrible, not knowledgeable about options for non-dairy, food was mediocre. Wonder if changes in staffing occurred due to pandemic- music was great, but the food and service so bad that we won't be coming back any time soon.

Main courses were excellent (chilean sea bass and scallops). However, beet salad was very small and could hardly find the beets. Service was impeccable. Jazz music was amazing.

Dinner fare pretty standard American menu, covers the basics with a nice twist on things, like having dry-aged steak. The ambience was very good with live Jazz, and the whiskey selection is, of course, outstanding.

The live jazz was very enjoyable and all 3 of us found
our appetizers and entrees excellent.
The crab cakes were especially delicious.
Our servers were quite attentive and our seating
near the stage was perfect.
Overall it was a delightful evening.
On another note, their customized outside dining area
is without a doubt the most creative and professionally
installed I have seen anywhere in NYC! I say
"congratulations" on this superb job!

Had a lovely evening (3 of us), reunion with a friend visiting from Mexico. Beautifully done space and very well appointed. Unique way to store overhead liquor and we enjoyed watching one of the nimble servers use a ladder to retrieve a bottle. Warm welcome from our hostess. The jazz duo was delight, very entertaining. Food was good ... we had salmon, house burger with truffled fries, beet salad, good solid drinks. Service does need to be a bit crisper, though. We will definitely revisit!
