JD's Bistro offers amazing live jazz music and fantastic food. We have gone on Friday evenings each of the last 2 times we've been in the Port Charlotte area. That's when the Danny Sinoff Trio is playing and includes Patricia Dean on drums. All 3 musicians are incredible on the instruments they play. Danny's and Patricia's voices are so beautiful!...

We stayed at the Days Inn next door while we were looking for a home. They suggested JD's. The food was good and they had live music. A bit pricey.

I think all entrees were about $25 and up. It was a bit more than I expected, but I didn't look at the menu so that's my fault. The price is generally too much for me. Atmosphere was very nice. Pretty quiet and calm. Enjoyable meal. There's a JD's lighted sign near the street, but the building sign is not... More

Exemplary servce, excellent fresh ingredients, skilfully prepared, beautiully presented. The wine list is extensive and eveything is available by the glass so each diner can have the perfect wine for their dinner. Important to me was the discreet GF beside more than half the menu items, so I did not have to guess, or make a point of asking, or... More

This is a very nice little Bistro. The food was good but pricey. The ambiance was nice. The Jazz trio was good but would have liked more music and less singing.

We've been to to J.D's a half dozen times or so and had very good food at times and average food at other times. The service has likewise been inconsistent, from average to less so. Most recently, we waited a good while before anyone came to take our drink orders. The music is a very nice touch, though if you... More

It was great because we could walk next door from Days Inn. Food and entertainment were excellent. Service was great one night - the next it was different waiter, and we sat next to the kitchen door and he ignored us until we asked if he was going to wait on us. He had already taken and delivered our drinks.... More
