If you are up for an early evening show, book a ticket - the music calibre is phenomenal. Drinks and munchies are also a good way to kill the time you wait for the show to start. The audience tonight was a bit older, but all in all a really relaxing fantastic spot for great music.

The Jazz Club is iconic in Victoria and they bring in some really good Jazz Musicians. Tickets are very inexpensive. A bonus,I'd they also,serve meals though not haute cuisines it is a,pretty good option to have. Try the chicken salad. The staff are fantastic! Like be Hermans.

Hermann's is a small restaurant with a stage for listening to local or international Jazz performers. You can enjoy dinner, glass of wine or coffee while listening to some amazing performers. The website has a nightly listing and you can reserve a seat as well. There is a cover charge depending,on the performance.

Went to a cd release party--music was great but the food was horrible. Have been to Hermans many times to hear many different bands--always top notch live music. This was the first time we had food & it will be our last time. 6 of us in the group, all of us ordered food, only the fish & chips were... More

Very cozy place, great musicians, theater style venue, food is good, not so much options, but you go there for the music. On Sunday's they have a nice program with local musicians. Very friendly staff, definitely a place to go if you like jazz

You go to Hermanns for the music and the experience of being in a place where it seems like time has stood still since it opened it's doors. A laid back place that makes you feel like you're in a kitchen party and you're very humbled to be part of something very special. I can see us coming here at... More

Nice place, friendly staff, well run, but on 5/31/2015 between 3:30 pm and 4:45 pm there was a guy openly smoking. Albeit a so-called e-cigarette, but the smoke was obvious, which is why I looked around. Second hand smoke is dangerous and illegal in public places. Rating would be much higher if not for the smoke.

Heard so much about this place for years and never managed to actually get to it when I was in Victoria. How is that possible I wonder? Can't comment on the food but the music is why you go. You can get food anywhere. Great jazz? Not so accessible - at least not in Vancouver anymore now that real estate... More

Not a restaurant that has music, this is a jazz club that serves food! Step back in time to a better place. Hermann's is a jazz club, make no mistake about that! We enjoyed the company and the entertainment. Although amateur, these musician were polished and very well trained. Every artist had a love of what they were doing. Definitely... More
