I attend this past Saturday to see Michael Blackson.. I bought 5 VIP tickets, but was seated in a corner, with no real clear view of the stage. Waitress Elizabeth came to the two tables we were seated at. There were 2-people at one table...More

I've seen some great comedians preform here. I like that it is a smaller venue. It gives a more intimate experience. The food and drink is pricy but not bad. Portions are decent and staff is typically really friendly and on point. Skip desserts though...the...More

The host, warm up act and headliner were all terrible. The food was mediocre while the service was pretty good as well as the seating and venue. Too bad the comics were a bust.

We went to Improv on an odd Thursday night and had a great time. Lots of locals visit here as well and that is reflected in the presenter lineup. The venue itself is beautiful, Minskoff-like and even intimate. Restaurant and drink service inside is friendly...More
