Amazing place, amazing music (we saw Kurt elling performance). 40usd with a welcome drink is not bad for an historic place like this. Better than any museum in NYC.

We only hard 1/4 of the show. None of us enjoyed our meals. New York has alot better offerings. It's $30 a person for music, $25+ for each meal and it was not at all worth those prices. Service was good.

We had a spare evening and decided to go on a whim. Food was good. Service was reasonably attentive. Entertainment was not a headliner, but acceptable. In all a positive experience we would repeat.
