There are two parts of this establishment: a restaurant part and the piano bar. I had dinner here with my sister and some friends and the food was really lacking. It was very simple ravioli, clearly not freshly made, with some generic pasta sauce for...More

Whether you stop in to just hand at the bar and listen to varied singers who take the mic (Broadway starts have been known to drop in unannounced), or reserve a seat in their cabaret, you'll always have a good time here. From comedians to...More

This piano bar is one of our most favorite stops in the city. It's raucous, small, but filled with the kind of joie de vivre that brings a smile to even the crustiest family member. The staff all take turns to sing with the pianist...More

We went at 830pm for drinks only! We had a great time the piano man could rock the piano and the singing talent was amazing! This was one of the highlights of my New York Visit!

Stopped in on a whim - amazing singers and hilarious banter between piano man/singer and the wait staff who double as singers. Came here solo and felt comfortable. Enjoyable evening!

Stopped in on the way back from dinner in NYC. A fun and rolicking goid time. Lots of energy from the singers and piano player. A couple drinks is a small price to pay for some authentic singing and entertainment! Must see!

Don't Tell Mama is a must stop whenever we're in NYC, and it's always a fun time. It's a classic piano bar with the servers doubling as singers and they're amazing although it's a bit heavy on the show tunes; would be better to mix...More

Our group of 4 made reservations for dinner at 7. If you're going to stay for entertainment after dinner, I'd suggest eating around 7:30. The food was delicious! My husband and I ordered the fixed price meals and were very happy. The other couple with...More

Great little place with singing waiters and bartenders, who never miss a beat in their service or drink-making. Some really professional talent; songs upon request. No cover charge but some minimum drink requirement. Lots of fun. Have been going for years, and while some of...More

iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal
