My wife and I went to the Jazz Cafe predominately to see an artist and the food was secondary, but nevertheless this review is based on the food alone. We arrived as the doors opened at 19:00hrs and we had booked a table overlooking the stage. The staff seemed disorganised upstairs and our table booking was passed around like a... More

Went for meal, drinks and to see Bobby Valentino (soul singer) The venue is a great place to watch live acts, very intimate. Sat in mezzanine restaurant, brilliant view of stage and good table. Unfortunately the food was poor, service average and they tried to get a 15 pound service charge which I really wasn't happy paying as the meal... More

This review is for the Jazz Cafe in Camden, London. It's based on my experience of the venue, and although my visit was to see a band, this is not a review of the gig itself. Any mention of the performance is only to put the review in context. Ok, so friends of mine bought tickets for The Blockheads gig... More

The Brand New heavies were amazing, shame they were completely let down by the venue. Poor sound quality, terrible service. We arrived early, starters arrived quickly, the wine we ordered took forever to arrive, when we finally went to find the waitress to request it, she said that the bar work through tickets in order, so she couldn't hurry it...

Fab band. Brand new heavies. Amazing. Just watch the staff as their far too eager to clear your drinks away when you're trying to enjoy the rest of the performance at end from band. They're also far too presumptuous in thinking that your change should be a tip. Not impressed ....

Great evening at the Jazz Cafe in Camden where the Hackney Colliery Band were performing. The band were on form and the jazz audience were buzzing! It got crowded and hot, but there was space and seating upstairs, where you could watch the band and the audience below with a cold drink from the bar. A great venue and a... More

Jazz Cafe drags out mixed reactions from me. The name is misleading - today. Once in a while there are jazz shows - for the most part these days, the live acts are not jazz. Quite disappointing as one would expect that there should be a whole host of jazz artists playing here all the time! The venue itself is... More

Came to the Jazz Cafe for a midweek gig (hip-hop, not jazz). As far as a Camden gig venues go, this is better than most. Door staff were efficient, and you walk straight into one of the bars. There were a number of seats, and service was prompt. Past the first island bar is the main part with the stage.... More

My party booked a table on the restaurant level to hear Ayana Witter-Johnson in November. Excellent show but the ladies room had no toilet paper and only 2 stalls with lighting that worked and none of the 3 members of staff we spoke to early in the evening took any action, conditions were worse later in the evening. Service was... More
