    Just to say we couldn't go to New York because of President Trump's decision to suspend all flights from Europe ... and Milton's Playhouse did not even react when I asked to postpone our reservation. Very kind of them.

    Stop asking how it was when all the events are canceled!!!! Update your for the pandemic. This review is reflecting badly on this establishment because your program is not up to date. Please delete this review after you - Open Table - have taken notice!!!

    Minton's offers a "something for everybody" menu. Check it out online. Excellent meal; superb entertainment!

    Great place and good people. The atmosphere was fantastic and it was a perfect place to celebrate my 27th Anniversary . The food was great and the music was very good as well. It made my wife happy so that's good enough for me.

    Full disclosure: I attended a jazz performance at Minton's and did not order food. I reserved a ticket only for me, and stated that I was there by myself when I arrived (doing so to facilitate appropriate seating). After nearly 30 minutes of being ignored by all the wait staff (though the busser was great with water), I asked a waiter if he knew why no one had taken my order. He kindly offered and we were off to the races. Opportunities abound here. Every glass on the table, as well as the ones served to me, was dirty. (And I quietly and appropriately pointed out the worst offender here to a waiter.) The kitchen needs a sturdier (read: soundblocking) door so activity there - which is expected and appropriate - cannot be heard in the dining room, particularly when musicians are performing. Minton's is a culturally and historically significant place, and while the things I experienced do not change that, they reflect poorly on an establishment that is acoustically a terrific performance venue that is also a restaurant and bar.

    Took my wife hear, Will definitely go again. Great atmosphere and great live jazz. Drinks and food were on the pricey side, but the noise level and musicians made it worth it.

    The did not honor the reservation even though we had already purchased tickets. They over booked on Valentine’s Day then turned us away at the door. We weren’t able to get dinner because it was 10pm and most other places were closing. This was very disappointing.
