To begin this review, I should point out I accompanied someone to this location. I was not my choice for a couple reasons. If you enjoy jazz, the ambiance is just fine. I personally am not a fan of it, and having had the food there one before, I would not have chosen to return to the House of Jazz... More

First of all I booked this resturant two weeks in advance. Upon arrival you are required to pay $2 per person to check your coat (no choice). Even with reservation we were seated no where near the stage. We were told there might be a possibility should people not show up that we could be moved..no one ever let us... More

After reading many reviews, the venue did not live up to expectations - at all. Despite tables next to us somehow getting express service, it took about 30 minutes after being seated to get our dinner order taken, and ask what the soup/dessert du jour were. Normally this would be offered to at least inform you of what's on offer...... More

I'm not what one would call a jazz enthusiast. But I do enjoy quality entertainment and a good meal, so when we booked a table at the House of Jazz in Montreal I was looking forward to some smooth music and a good steak dinner. We received both. The band playing that night was the Taurey Butler Jazz trio, and... More

Thanks very much to the staff they were great! The music was great (especially from front row) We tried to reserve but they didn't take reservation until 8ish. First come first served afterwards. We got lucky on our table. The food was good - no complaints or suggestions! Cheers!

We were searching for a place that had live music and food. This is a very short walk from our hotel. Good food and drinks and a high energy singer, as part of the band there that night. Very decorated and lots to look at.

Went with a friend. Atmosphere of an old jazz club, which it is. Food was better than expected and the foie gras was unbelievable. Would go back just for that. Good music with Dwight Grant and friends. Service a little slow but worth it for overall experience.

We made a reservation for The House of Jazz on the referral of a friend! We arrived, paid the mandatory $2 coat check fee and were seated quickly. Very cool atmosphere, colourful, eclectic with a wide array of beautiful light fixtures. There were a pianist, double bass cello and drum playing awesome music all evening. Our server was pleasant and... More

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.
