Music was great! However, the whole setup was very bad...poor food and the worst service I’ve encountered in a long time. Will not go back.
My wife and I have been going to Smoke for many years, always great entertainment.
It is a great place. Loved the music and the food.
Terrible food, poor service, great music
Soirée inoubliable. Intimité, charme, qualité. C’est l’endroit à ne pas rater pour expérimenter une soirée Jazz à NY en dînant. À recommander.
The Sunday Jazz Brunch was excellent. They recovered quickly and quietly from a kitchen mistake on one of the four of us. The food was excellent. The music was "friendly" as was the wait staff. Plenty of time for conversation before and after the music set.
Excellent value with s fine meal and solid local jazz group. Appetizers were pretty standard fare but salmon came perfectly rare as requested with young asparagus and finger potatoes. Hubby's pork chop was substantial and tasty and he appreciated the mac and cheese accompaniment. Service was perfectly timed so as not to interfere with the performance and we appreciated the quiet policy during the performance as much as the musicians. Diners don't linger and obediently make way for the next seating within the 2 hour window.
I enjoyed my jazz club experience for my birthday, it was on my bucket list and now I can say it's been crossed off. I loved the cozy and intimate ambiance plus the music was soothing. I only wish there was more flavor to the food and slightly larger portions, also an extra helping hand because the waitress was the only person serving guests (I felt bad for her). Overall, it lived up to my expectations and I will revisit soon.
What a great find! Great food and music! Who could ask for more. Beau has the lobster ravioli and said it was really good. I had salmon, fingerlings and asparagus. Salmon was outstanding. We visit the city regularly and will definitely be back. Great neighborhood find!
I stayed at Smoke from 8 o'clock in the evening to 1 am on late night.
It’s a amazing and fantastic time.
Many musicians played and I could enjoy jazz music deeply.
We visited Smoke for the first time recently because we wanted to see the jazz group playing. The food was above average for the "captive audience" of a jazz club, but could still use some tweaking. The ratatouille was barely an appetizer portion: a collection of white beans with about 1/2 a zucchini and 1 tomato's worth of vegetables. As the only vegetarian option, it was a disappointment. On the other hand, the fish tacos were quite good and filling with an assortment of condiments on the side. The small club atmosphere was great for seeing the live music. We would be back, but might not arrive so hungry, even though an entree purchase is required during some shows.
It was my Husbands and I Date night ,while we in New York. I had been at Smoke ,last year,with my Daughter and had a wonderful experience.We were not disappointed ,the mood ,ambiance,music just wonderful .However we may not order chicken next time ,P
It was Great.Great music and Great food, but i wish the amount of food i got on my plate was a lil bit more for the money i paid. It was like a kids plate. But it was still a Great place to go to, I enjoyed the atmosphere.
Smoke is a place to go for music. It is a great venue for Jazz, with intimate connections with the music and great sound. The food is good, but not the attraction. The food is a bit pricey, but I guess one is paying for more than the food. I wish they had more vegetarian options.
Had an amazing experience! Went with two of the most important people in my life and had wonderful time
You really can't go wrong with any of the entrees. They either smell or taste delicious. They were also served in a timely fashion.
The music was terrof
Went on a date to Smoke with my husband to do something different. They had an early show which was so nice and got to see and hear a whole set. The price fix is the best deal. Food was really good and the wine list had plenty of drinkable options. I was thankful that we arrived before the music started otherwise we wouldn't have had much opportunity to talk - talking is discouraged during the set, which seems perfectly appropriate, we just hadn't thought of it beforehand. I sat on the banquette thinking comfort, but I couldn't really see the guitar player. Next time I'll chose a different seat. The sound was really good.
This was my second time there. Had a great time again. This time it was extra special because my girl had not been to New York since she was very young. Great experience in all. Great time.
We go to Smoke for the jazz. The food is delicious also, and the ambiance is cozy.
The food was fairly good and service was attentive. The space is very small, but it has a charm in that way, though your neck will get a workout turning to get a view, depending on your seat.
My main complaint is the staff should have advised there is a $38 per person fee for the show that is NOT part of restaurant week.
Very surprising to see a $76 addition added to your total.
The music was so great. The food is awesome. It is just so expensive that I can only justify coming once a year. Too bad that jazz is now reserved for the wealthy.
It was restaurant week with jazz, the food was certainly not what we expected for $42 pp. Too many tables in a small space, so no personal space The jazz though was absolutely great. But for the food I would not recommend the restaurant.
Went for Restaurant Week. Great atmosphere and excellent service. Will definitely be back
Very nice setting,good good,nice live band and singer.Me and my partner had a wonderful time for my birthday! Looking forward to coming back real soon
The first time was better. The food left me wanting more. This time it was okay and the love that was in there the first time was not in the second time around.
Go with the understanding that it's super tight and you'll be there for a while, but it's definitely worth it for the good food and great live music.
Pleasant evening. Friendly staff on arrival who got much more business like wrapping up the first set diners. Tasty fried chicken and onion soup. Short ribs could have been slow cooked longer.
My husband and I love visiting New York, and we are also lovers of jazz. Smoke combined so many great things - romantic atmosphere, an adventurous menu, super service, and awesome jazz! It was one of the top 3 highlights of our five day stay in New York. Thanks for the terrific evening... left us feeling really JAZZED!
We were there for Sunday brunch.
Excellent food and gorgeous atmosphere!
Great food and great music. I recommend this place for all occasions. Very casual and overall good vibes.
Food is not worth the price. Do yourself a favor and eat prior - or just come for a drink of wine or beer at the bar. The cocktail menu was overpriced for the quality.
The food was just ok here. Having the experience was night, but I'm fine with never going back.
Tickets to jazz show ($38 in addition to dinner + drinks) was not worth it for a Friday meal. Food was great but it quickly became an expensive meal for a show that did not feel particularly riveting or impactful.
Our waiter did not speak english well, making communicating difficult. Also, I thought Restaurant week was a chance for them to put their best foot forward to gain new customers, but the food portions we received looked like they were from a kids menu, very small. If Restaurant week means cutting corners, I would not recommend this week to anyone!
Better than expected- went during restaurant week on a Wed eve.- music was great (they own an organ) and food was good. Service was VERY SLOW, waiter didnt know what a French 75 was and then asked how i wanted my salmon cooked. Happy overall 4/5 stars and would recommend! I took my dad who is a huge jazz lover in his 60s, a guy native NYer from Harlem and me a 30something female and we all enjoyed!!
No me gustó el lugar asignado. Reservé una mesa y me ubicaron en la barra. De espalda y con los meseros de por medio en un rincón tuve que escuchar el show. Muy caro para el servicio que prestan. No me gustó y no lo recomiendo. Fui con mucha ilusión y me desepcionó
The service was incredible our waitress was so attentive and sweet. The food was even better. Simply amazing!
Well worth the money! Great food, fantastic music. Tuesday nights rock!
