I really hate to give this place a bad review because it has so many good ones but--------- I went there on a Wednesday night at around 9:30. There were maybe 10 people in the bar at most. My husband and I sat down at a table next to the bar and listened to the piano player who was very good. We sat there for about 5 minutes waiting for a waitress. My husband got up, walked the 2 steps to the bar and ordered our drinks from the bartender who didn't seem to notice us 3 feet away from her. The waitress finally shows up and asks us what we want. The bartender says " I got it" and the waitress apologizes to the bartender!! Not us for ignoring us but to the bartender. HUH???? So we drink our drinks and enjoy the piano player (the only bright spot in this place). As I said we were sitting right next to the bar. I happen to notice that the 2 bartenders, the waitress and a patron (who works there on a different night) were so deep into conversation that they completely ignored the customers. When it came time for another round of drinks, my husband had to get up again and order our drinks. What is up with the staff here? We were there about an hour and not once did the waitress ask us if we needed anything. When it came time for the bill, AGAIN my husband had to get up and ask for the bill. The waitress brings over the bill, still talking away with the bartenders, not even acknowledging that there is anyone at the table. We were not the only ones being ignored. These people didn't move from the corner of the bar the whole time we were there, unless a customer called them. I can't believe the owners would condone this type of behavior from its employees. We left the waitress a $2 tip on a $40 bill and walked out.

Pros: good piano player

Cons: the staff

This is a "must do" for foodies when in NYC. The menu here is a magical flavor combustion. The service was a bit disappointing but the great food and presentation made up for that.... We can't wait to go back!

We've been going to DTM for years and I highly recommend it! It's a completely unique experience--especially if you are from out of town. Head straight for the Piano Bar. (They also have "Cabaret" rooms with various shows. Sometimes fab, sometimes not. Get the word first.) In the Piano Bar, you will find some of the best entertainers in the world---and they're also the drink servers! Sing-alongs, comedy, and a real party atmosphere. Be sure and go EARLY (9:30) on the week-end when George Sanders is there. He's an incredible talent----singing and comedy. Ask to see his Sneaky Snake or Swiss Cheese. A must!

Pros: Great Entertainment, George Sanders, Friendly

Cons: Hard to get in, Waiting list

Get there early... it is tough to get into. It is small and not for a large group if you want to sit together. But everytime we have gone, we have come out smiling.

The Poole Party! is the best comedy show in NYC! There is stand-up, musical comedy, and great interaction with the crowd. A great value! The performers are different each week, but all are good... Especially Wes Moon.

Pros: Tons of them

Cons: Sells out quickly

I have been going to DTM for years. It's a GREAT place to bring out-of-towners. The line IS very long but there's obviously a reason for that. It's best to get there between 9:30-10:00 pm on weekends so you get a seat, have a cocktail and chat with friends until the entertainment starts. GREAT VOICES! Anne Steele is AMAZING. The service is fine and the prices are not over the top. GREAT fun!!

Saw Forbidden Divas with no reservation-"10 points",

2 people, 2 drinks each with cover was a little over $50-"8pts",

Christine Pedi has a great voice and apparently does great impersonations-"10pts",

I had no idea who/what she was
talking about since I haven't seen every single broadway play-"1pt",

Got hit in the back several times by a some crazy lady for not loving the show-"1pt",

left right in the middle of the act-"1pt",

DRUNK-"10pts",

oh, got there DRUNK-"1pt".

The piano bar LOOKED fun-"10pts"

That averages out to a 7.

i really expected everything here to be overpriced since there was a 2 drink minimum... but i was wrong, the drinks *even though they werent that good* were the same as at any bar. however, the waiters were rude, but the comedy definitely made up for it. we went to see the Poole Party! comedy act, most of the people were hilarious... there was some singing too. it was overall fun, but i dont know if id want to go back there...

When in New York City, spend at least one night at Don't Tell Mama. Everyone who works in their world-famous piano bar is so talented, you won't be disappointed. Call & Ask when to go, you'll be steered in the right direction, and you'll have a true NYC nightclub experience!

I was in NY for a couple of days and based on the reviews here I thought I would drop by to see how great this club was. I think I missed the boat.

I arrived around 9 and saw maybe 8 comedians. Out of these I would say only 2 were really good and one was okay. The rest happened to be lost meandering souls telling the usual bigot jokes. Maybe I just went on the wrong night.

I realize that these comedians are not professionals and this should not reflect on the club. However when the the bill came to 40 bucks for 3 drinks and a sub-par show (the drinks were a coke, sprite, and tonic) believe me....I'm not going here again.

Ron Poole's show is a Must See for anyone living in or visiting New York City. Since a co-worker took me to my first Poole Party in January, I've gone back over and over and brought all my friends. I can't believe this show is still only $10 cover!
Each Saturday night The Poole Party takes me away from all the stress of the work week and for a few hours I sit back and am completely entertained.
