Food is average.

My husband and I went for lunch so there was no live jazz. The food was average, while I enjoyed my roast beef my husband didn't like his burger. The ambiance is kinda neat to see.

Our 9 day trip to Montreal was to include some type of music venue that might be Blues or Jazz or some type of live performance. Because of a chance sighting while touring on the Hop-On - Hop-Off bus we passed the wonderful establishment of HOUSE OF JAZZ - live music and unexpected great food. We went on a Wednesday... More

Impressive decor full of jazz memorabilia. Host was a bit gruff but handsome young waiter with ponytail was sweet & very accommodating. Chicken & ribs were unexpectedly wonderful, the BBQ sauce, coleslaw & the caramel chocolate explosion were excellent. I really enjoyed the band because they played great blues & familiar jazz tunes but...alas...no dance floor. A really fun night... More

This is easy going jazz very well delivered by Snooky and the Gangstas. The meal is good, better than I expected in a jazz joint. The decor and ambiance are unique and set the stage for a good time. The service is ok.

I went here with my boyfriend during a short trip to Montreal. The entertainment that night was amazing, and they really included the audience in the performance. The food and drinks were very good too. The waitress we had could have been a bit more friendly towards us. Other than that, this place was great!

The atmosphere here is really nice, the entertainment is top notch and is the main reason you go there. Most nights have a cover charge. It's great to grab a drink and the food is not mind-blowing, but very satisfactory. Prices are standard and fair. Keep a eye out, as they have special nights. The waitstaff was very kind, but...

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighborhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
