Jillian Laurain is a wonderful entertainer. Her salute to Barbra Streisand was perfect, no camping or impersonation necessary! Her voice & her selection of rarities that Streisand herself doesn't sing in concert earned her a standing ovation!

McBroom and her musical partner Michele Brourman were stunning. Sharing the stage with easy rapport and relating warmly to a very receptive audience. Material we had not... continued

My husband likes jazz, so I thought this would be a nice treat for his birthday. The venue is cosy, but nice, and the staff was friendly. The drinks, which were pricey... continued

Once again, we have a fabulous show from Amanda -- new McBroom, old McBroom, current McBroom, timeless McBroom -- and much of the incredible Michele Brourman and a few... continued

Setting was intimate and elegant. Performance was terrific and Peggy made you feel like family.

The Joan Curto show was very good. She was entertaining and had a great voice. The only down side of the event was that the show only lasted one hour and there was a 2 drink minimum.

The Metropolitan Room is so crowded that you may feel your knees are in peril as you wait for the show to start. But it all falls away as soon as Marilyn sings. This new... continued

The performance of the night I went was incredibly boring... Make sure you find out who is playing and singing.

The saxophonist was wonderful and who we wanted to see...but hardly got to hear much of him, because the singer (WHO SHOULD FIND ANOTHER CAREER) overwhelmed the stage!!
..and we don't like having to "drink" the minimum.
Give me Birdland everytime!!

The setting was fine. Annie Ross has no voice anymore. A big disappointment

The young Spanish pianist was very good. We were not pleased with the seating, though. At the door, we were persuaded to buy, for an additional $20, booth seating that... continued

Uptown Express put on a great show - they sing such a variety of musical genres and their harmonies are great. Venue was very good - like the 7:00 PM start time. We will definitely go to the Metropolitan Room again.

Went for the entertainment - which was excellent. Laurie Krauz & The Daryl Kojak Octet are like fine wine - gets better with time. The venue itself is very small and the tables could have been a little more spaced. It was definitely intimate.

Went with a friend and we both found the place lovely and the singers great!! Besides having wonderfully compatible voices, each had excellentl presentation and the show went by in a flash.

You really need to know the performers or you could get a really expensive, bad experience like I did. The performer was a bad Wayne Newton type with bad backup singers.... continued
