Love the decor and service . We enjoy the seafood boil but think you should add a second lobster tail to the dish. Should be able to offer a second tail for a nominal up charge.

The place is beautiful. The staff is nice but a little slow at returning with drinks and extras. I ordered a chicken salad and I returned it and just told them to add the chicken and they threw a few pieces of freezing cold chicken on it so u didn’t fully enjoy it. Other than that it was nice.

My first (and last) visit to Jazzboline was with a group of friends. We had a reservation and were seated promptly. The space is beautiful. We immediately ordered an appetizer which arrived in a reasonable timeframe and was tasty. Sadly, this is where my compliments will end.

I will point out them at the restaurant was not packed, as we’d arrived about 30 minutes before brunch changed to dinner service. Three from our party ordered drinks: one cocktail, one glass of wine, and one glass of juice. The cocktail took approx 15 mins to arrive at our table. The wine about 17. The juice took about 20 minutes. We hadn't even ordered our meals yet, though a few members of our party ordered soup. Two of three arrived and it was not until they were finished that our waitress visited the table and was informed that the third person had not received her soup.

Our meals took another hour to arrive, during which time the waitress made no attempt to check in on us. We could see one of the meals sitting under the heat lamp in the kitchen for a long time. Once five of our six meals arrived, it became apparent that the last had been forgotten. We observed a conversation between the waitress and kitchen, which looked unpleasant, before our waitress returned to the table. Her apology was halfhearted and she spent most of the time complaining about what a crappy day she was having. She also mentioned that she couldn’t wait to leave. It was uncomfortable.

After the (mediocre) missing meal arrived, the waitress offered to “buy another glass of wine” for my friend. She declined, as we were now in the restaurant for over 2 hours and had appointments elsewhere. My friend requested her dish to be comped and the waitress complied. She also offered a round of complimentary desserts; we accepted provided they could be taken to-go.

Lastly, the restaurant manager came to the table to offer what I think was intended to be an apology but sounded more like a rambling excuse. Unimpressive.

Reservation was for 9 did not get seated until 9:20....the service was great the food was ok. We had the chorizo flatbread pizza, calamari, pork sliders and the warm olives. Pork sliders were the best, the sauce for the calamari and on the pizza was creamy which I usually don’t mind but it just didn’t go well with the dish! Would I go back again...maybe for just drinks.

Enjoyed the ribeye special, that was served perfectly per my request. I can honestly say that it was the best steak I've ever had; that includes Russell's Steaks and Chops. Our server, Jerry, was very informative, attentive and made you comfortable like an old friend. I have already recommended Jazzboline to friends and family and will continue to do so. We look forward to our next dining experience with you.

Very nice place. Service was so so. Our first round of drinks came back incorrect. Food was good. We thought there was jazz every night. Turns out it’s just Thursday’s and Sunday’s. So little disappointing not to hear the music.

Wasn’t impressed, ordered lobster bisque, questioned if that what it was when it arrived. Was told yes just different style, when finished was told “actually it wasn’t bisque, it was a bean soup, they never told us they changed soup”
Hair in our butter for bread, no apologies for soup.

Food was good but a bit more expensive than I would expect.. Wasn’t overly impressed by anything, flavors were all good but our meat was a bit dry and the risotto was bland. The cocktails however were phenomenal! The winter in Manhattan tops my list as the best cocktail I’ve ever had. Ambiance and service were both incredible! I would definitely return but maybe only for cocktails and appetizers.

I made a reservation the day before, via Open Table and asked for a booth. I was called to confirm the reservation the day of. We were at the restaurant at 7:45pm for and 8pm reservation and were seated after 9pm.
The lamb ribs and chicken chowder were DELICIOUS or I would’ve given a one star for the food. My husband ordered the special which the server made sound completely amazing only for her to tell us they were out. So we both got the filet - his side was the risotto and mine was the rosemary mashed potatoes. The steaks were BLAND. Zero flavor. His risotto was not a risotto at all. It was wet, hard, rice that only tasted of raw red bell pepper. My plate was brought to the table with fingerling potatoes again unseasoned. I mentioned to her that I received the wrong side and was told that she knew it was wrong but they were out of mashed potatoes so she just put this on the plate. We told her we didn’t like the the risotto or the choice of fingerling potatoes so she brought out French fries that were fresh, but unseasoned. by this time you can imagine how over it we were and I barely touched my food. She came back to offer dessert and we declined and declined a discount, we just wanted to leave. She brought the check back with two glasses of wine removed from our bill. We paid with a gift certificate and that was a HUGE problem. Our bill was less than the certificate, but with a tip, I would charge about $10 on my card. She brought back the gift certificate with about $18 on it, and a subtotal of $.01 so that I could use my card to leave the entire tip. I’m not sure why they couldn’t use the whole gift certificate for both the bill and the tip and then charge the remaining on my bill. We tried to ask but she said the system wouldn’t let her. The whole payment process was ridiculous.
In the end we paid $130-something plus a 20% tip on the entire bill (including the wine that was removed from the bill).
I’m so disappointed with the entire dining experience.

We made reservations for Christmas Eve and were concerned with what we would get. The service was outstanding and the food was great. My wife had the crab arugula salad and absolutely raved about the salad. Her duck brest entree was done well. I had the sweet potatoes bisque and sea scallops. The bisque was far better than I expected and the scallops were cooked perfectly over a risotto.

The room is large and could get noisy but we had no difficulty talking in a normal voice.

I would recommend Jazzboline for special occasions or just a nice night out.

It was a "special" menu for Christmas Eve, that was really just WAY too overpriced. And incredibly limited! I don't eat seafood, and 90% of the way too few choices were seafood. Really surprising that they don't include a number of other options with various meats, or vegetarian. And the pricing was stupid expensive. Want a salad? only 3 choices, 2 of which are seafood, and you will pay an additional $12. Nope. Service was OK, but given that it wasn't very crowded, service should not have been as slow. I will go back and try their "regular" menu sometime, as I believe it is far more reasonably priced and way more varied of a menu.

When you walk in the door you see this beautiful long bar. The place is really stunning. Is is roomy and and has a very comfortable feel. The people were polite and helpful. The food was exceptional. We ordered steak and you could cut it with a butter knife. The ambience was bright and airy. It was quiet enough to have a conversation. I will definitely go back again and would recommend this place for a very nice experience.
