The Jim Hall Quartet's set was outstanding.
Birdland is a classy jazz club that hosts some of the finest names in music. The service is expectional and you leave the club with a great feeling. I cannot wait until I return real soon.

I can't say enough good things. Outstanding musicians, top-quality mic/speakers at the right volume, five-star food, professional service, and the classy yet mellow atmosphere you want in a jazz supper club with this lineage. By all means, go!

It was our first time at Birdland (I went with a friend) and we both loved the band. Excellent music. Nice space; nice vibe; almost as good as going to the BB King Restaurant, but we felt that the mixed drinks were too expensive. We did not eat.

the masters were extraordinary;the intertwining of their passion and dynamic sophistication had the effect of a gospel choir in a library reading room

the music was great but drinks overpriced. If I'm going to pay $14 for a martini I want a strong drink, use good vodka and skip the juice.
