    The music here is amazing! The list of great artist who have played the Blue Note is phenomenal. The place itself .. not so much. Somewhat of a cave. But I always enjoy it anyway :) Read more

    The crème de la crème in New York Jazz, the Blue Note is more of a shrine to the good old days of jazz. Get tickets to the later show and enjoy a few encore songs!

    The quality of the service is inversely proportional to the quality of the music. They have great music.

    the way they pack you in like a sardine can is what makes New Yorkers despise this place but you can't deny the amazing music that runs through it. Calamari is decent.

    Gets packed really quickly, and for good reason. Legendary performers give legendary performances here, but at a premium. Even though it's expensive, it's always a good show.

    I wish the music wasn't so good because this is the worst pace to listen to music I've ever been. Skip this overpriced sardine can and go to Village Vanguard.

    The cost of brunch is obviously for the musicians, who are Incredibly talented, and not the food, which is bland and uninspired.

    Jazz legends take to the stage pretty much every night. With the intimate setup and fantastic acoustics, we particularly like the low-key Late Night Groove series at 12:30am Friday/Saturday nights. Read more
