Great venue, great food. Lovely waitstaff - lousy house manager. Some very nice souvenirs (watch out for the "polo" shirt, though, unmarked at $50!) - but allow time to buy before or after, as there can be a rush at the check-out counter and...continued

Generally a fine club with great music and decent (if never exactly warm) service. However, beware the prices on the little menu they show you if you want to see a list of single malts, say, as I did. They're out of date, which my waitress did not...continued

Cyrille Aimee, an upcoming featured vocalist at Birdland and Sally Night sang a number of songs with what I believe is the "House" Quartet. Wasn't sure what to expect of this "Jazz Party," but I enjoyed the jam session . . .

By far the nicest jazz club I have been to. White table cloths, candle light, reasonable prices, good food, nice wine list AND.... drum roll.... the most amazing Jazz experience!!! Can't wait to take friends back with us.

A-MA-ZING night!! The band was incredible, every single musician was outstanding and, when we thought it could not get any better, Lou Donaldson (!!) got up on stage!

Been to 3 jazz venues in NYC so far and I'd have to say I like Birdland the most. Very nice and beautiful lighting!

Been here many time before. Staff and management are always a pleasure. The Yellowjackets were absolutely amazing.

Birdland is a lovely venue with great service and excellent food. The Overtone Quartet only played six pieces and of those, only two were really good quality. The others resembled a compilation of tiny vignittes pushed into the same musical...continued
