“Intimate and jazzy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014 via mobile

Very small venue, but surprisingly uncrowded considering the quality of both the music and the food.

Sure, the pizza was a bit of a wet mess, but it was very tasty and the sea food pasta didn't skimp on the lobster. Great value, certainly, and an excellent atmosphere to boot.

“a great unstuffy jazz club”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013 via mobile

how great to hear and see jazz in a real club, not a faux club or auditorium. yes, smoke is cramped. last time we saw a 16 piece band on the tiny stage... the sax leader was almost in the men's room... but up close and personal - wonderful. the staff is always friendly. the cover and minimums are reasonable and carefully explained. this is a hideaway; don't tell everyone about it. the first time we went several years ago, bill charlap was playing to an underwhelming crowd and we had a nice talk with him at the bar... now you have to go to the rose room to hear him... get to smoke while the musicians are still on their way up

“Ring in advance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Ring in advance and get your name put on the door. We didn't and just rocked up about 10pm. Had to come back for the second show at midnight. It is a very small intimate venue and well worth the wait. Loved it.

This is a great place! 4 of us had a fun and relaxing brunch , listening to excellent live jazz. The place is friendly and has a great vibe, the menu was great , and the music really good. I'm told the ribs were particularly good. Bookings recommended
