The music was great, for anybody who likes jazz this is a good place to go, but the service doesn't live up to standards. Very crowded and too few waiters. You wait and wait and wait ... Gets frustrating at one point Note that there is a mandatory 2$ cloakroom for coats and a 10$ fee for the music.

Went there for lunch with my husband on Valentine's day. Had a great time. Service was impeccable, food was really good (had a vegetarian salad and my husband chicken a la king). Decor is lovely. You feel transported to another place. Will definitely be back, but this time will go back for dinner when there is a band!

This resto/club is a fixture in downtown Montreal. It has been there for many years and attracts good acts. The 4 piece band was competent and played a series of pieces from the classic to the the more recent repertoire. The food was another matter. We made a reservation with the Groupon coupon. The meal was a set piece with... More

My wife and I like to go here for an evening out. We have however decided that it is best to eat elsewhere and go here for a few drinks and perhaps a cheese plate or other appies. The service is good, the music is great but the main courses on the menu are mediocre at best. On thia visit,... More

Great discovery! We have been to other House of Jazz, but never the one in Montreal. Saw a deal on Groupon and decided to try it (Two for the price of one) including a four course meal and an apéro. We loved it! We had reservations for 6h30 and we were welcomed by a very nice Maître D at the... More

Sunday, Dec. 15, we had reservation at the House of Jazz to celebrate a birthday. Expecting a wonderful evening of music and dining. But that is not the case. We were seated right in front of the stage and half of us had our back towards the stage, so we could not fully enjoy the band. The first sign of... More

While visiting my 90 yr old Dad in Montreal, we took a night off and went to the House of Jazz on Wednesday, October 16, 2013. Had 7:30 reservations and were seated right in front of the Band. Hubby ordered Escargot, I ordered the Fois Gras appetizer. The Escargots were lovely, but the Fois Gras was pretty pricy for the... More

Art deco ambiance, excellent music and good food, the perfect combination for a great evening with friends. Do not expect a tranquil diner expect a dining experience filled with good jazz and or blues interpreted by experienced musicians that will transport you into their world. Word of advice , rent a room near by you will be able to enjoy... More
