"Basic, bland food. Fine if you like food with very little seasoning/taste. Only good thing is that is close to Broadway theatres, but would try others rather than recommend or return to this restaurant."

"After dropping a bundle for dinner we discovered that the only way to hear music in the piano bar was to buy at least 2 drinks. Since we selected this restaurant to hear piano music, we were disappointed to have to buy two additional drinks on top of dinner. Food was good and our waiter was excellent. It's a shame that the 2 drink policy isn't clearer."

"First walking in I was impressed by the ambiance and the live music. Upon mentioning that I had a dinner reservation, my friends and I were moved into another section of the restraurant where the music could not be heard (disappointing). 2/3 people ordered the price-fixe menu and were not impressed by the selections. The salmon had no taste and was very slimy. Included with the price-fixe was dessert, but my server ended up charging us extra for dessert on top of the price-fixe. It took us forever to get our check making my friends and I almost late to our musical. I do not recommend this restaurant."

"We mistakenly walked into the cabaret, but we were soon ushered into the restaurant. It was a beautiful Spring day, so we sat outside in their little down the steps front area. We both had the price fixed menu and liked it very much! I have been here several times, but my friend had not.The waitress was lovely and the whole experience was delightful!"

"We came for lunch it was very quiet, we were literally the only ones in the restaurant because it's more of a nighttime restaurant. The food was all delicious i had the strip steak and it was cooked perfectly,flavored right, and not overpriced for the cut of meat provided. Also, the guacamole appetizer was to die for. I would definetly go there again for dinner and a show and recommend it to all my friends and family !"

"We went early 5:00 PM reservation. The dining area is intimately small, low lighting with comfortable wood & brick decor. The wait staff is so friendly, attentive and engaging especially the gentleman we had (his name escapes me although I want to say Jeff but I could wrong). I love the idea of Broadway musical songs playing while you dine, it's not too loud and gives the right amount of ambiance. The food was simple divine! I enjoyed the Tilapia with Shrimp as my main course and the Garlic Bread as the appetizer. I definitely will return to try something else on the menu and to have another great dining experience."

"Unfortunately, my lemon chicken was rubbery although it tasted good enough and the julienne veggies limp from old oil, the mashed potatoes were yummy, not overpriced for West Side Restaurant Row. NY cheese cake dessert with Cappuccino was the highlight but pricey for a small 9 dollar slice. The waiter seemed to be angry or disappointed with us the whole meal, or an attitude for reasons we could not figure out."

"First time trying Don't Tell Mama was a huge success. We found it while searching the theatre district for a good place for dinner and the restaurant name caught our eye. Even better, after a really enjoyable meal, we were able to go over to the bar side and listen to some great music. Piano was terrific and we heard some great singing on one mic.
Will definitely be back.

"We were staying nearby and found this restaurant whilst walking back to the hotel. We were told that the staff sang at 9pm which would make for an entertaining evening. Having looked at some other restaurants we booked for later that evening.
We were seated in the restaurant side and weren't told or asked if we wanted to be in what transpired to be the other side of the establishment where the entertainment might have been taking place.
Food was OK , service polite - but not memorable on either count hence the very average rating"
