I even got up and sang a couple numbers with the band. The food was amazing! I had the catfish special. I went back the next... More

My boyfriend and I had been wanting to check the Jazz Kitchen out for a while now, and we finally had an excuse to for my birthday this weekend! We were a little put-off at first when we realized you had to pay cover ($12 each) just to get in the door, then required to spend at least $15 per... More

Haven't visited in a few years so we Decided it was worth the visit once more. Since it was first date we both attended some years ago decided it would be worth attending to close out the year. Service was bit spotty but the ambience and general atmosphere more than made up for the service. Sounds as though everyone enjoyed... More

Friendly service, delicious food, warm atmosphere, and great music. A little bit of a trip from downtown, but we'll worth it!

My wife and I attended the recent John Scofield concert to celebrate my birthday. Since our tickets were general admission we arrived early in order to have a good choice of table options. We were able to garner a table on one of the side risers which gave us a great view of the stage. The menu is varied from... More

Saw Rick Braun perform and it was great! The food, drinks and service was exceptional. The venue is small and probably not a bad seat in the house. White tablecloths, candlelight, romantic dinner and entertainment. A fantastic night!

Outstanding 13 piece jazz band and female vocalist. Menu had quite a variety of options from soups, salads, appetizers, to main dishes including fish & vegetarian. Dance floor available and we watched a couple who were quite talented. A delightful evening & we will be returning.

Went to the Jazz Kitchen for Chowdown Midtown. We were treated to some good jazz and some above average food. We had the Caesar and Mixed Greens salads. Both were above average salads and the dijon vinegrette dressing on the mixed greens was tasty with a slight dijon kick. Excellent. For the main course we had the walnut crusted salmon... More
