    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!

    Louis Vuitton · May 2, 2012

    The Blue Note located is located in the heart of Greenwich Village. It is known to many as a Manhattan legend with many new and old jazz groups performing on a nightly basis. Read more · March 1, 2011

    Hi, jazz lover! If you’re planning a trip to Italy, don’t miss Blue Note Jazz Club in Milan. Good italian cuisine and, of course, the best jazz music from all around the world. Read more

    This place is an overpriced mess. Perfect for Tourists

    An upscale sort of experience with big international headliners performing on stage.

  • Maximiliano

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

    Maximiliano · January 27, 2013
  • Karen D.

    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.

    Do you know what interactive agency is located through a secret entrance inside the Blue Note? Hint: some refer to it as BBTF, other refer to it as "the Factory" Read more

    Not much of a jazz buff but enjoyed listening to Helio Alvez from Brasil. The food (black Angus burger) was solid.

    Don't purchase bar tickets, tables or nothing at all. You'll see why :)

    Some great musicians but the place... not so great

    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.

    It's the Blue Note: epic NYC jazz venue. The service sucks. Music is what it's about here. You can sit within sweat-range of your favorite icon. Do it

    Carl Figueiredo · December 14, 2012
  • KFed 4.

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

    KFed 42 · October 28, 2012

    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 · January 9, 2012

    Get there 30 min early or they will give your reservation to someone else!

    Food is overpriced. Guinness is in bottle, not on tap. Place is ridiculously cramped when full. Great music, though.

    Hangin with Earl Klugh!

    Great line-up. Awful acoustics. Weird layout. A modest selection of mainstream beers, massively overpriced.

    Sardine can.

    I hate the personnel's attitude here! It's like they are making you a favor to let you in!

    Good music but no thanks! The seating is tight and uncomfortable, the food is like bad wedding food, the drinks aren't great and the tourists don't understand the etiquette of a jazz club. Nightmare!

    Performing artist Harry Belafonte who's a regular here calls this local spot one of the hippest jazz joints in the country. Read more about why Belafonte loves Blue Note on MetroFocus Read more

    Sunday brunch: food was barely edible. Go to Blue Smoke

    NYU Sunday brunch: jazz on the experimental edge, kind of intense for a Sunday morning

    Arrive at 6 for hoping to find a seat at the bar... otherwise reserve a table.

    Chris Botti was one of the best musical experiences I've ever had. The place is tiny but never overcrowded, sound is great, and cheesecake amazing. Good service. Very newyorkish.
