Food was average but service was attentive and the furnishings were interesting. We had lunch but dinner and jazz would have been fun.

My husband and I went to House of Jazz on a Wednesday night. The band was Snooksta and the Gangsters and they were amazing. Drinks were delicious and staff was wonderful. Menu is more like pub fare than a nice restaurant so if you are looking for more upscale food go elsewhere. We would go again based on the show... More

I visited with my husband who's not really a jazz fan. So I was pleasantly surprised that he enjoyed himself. I liked that the venue is cozy enough that you can see the stage from pretty much any table. We had a coupon that we had purchased online - it was a great deal and gave us the chance to... More

I haven't been to House of Jazz since it was Biddle's many years ago. But once I entered, it felt really good. Just like I remembered. I wouldn't suggest you come to House of Jazz for exceptional food. The food is good, but it's not over the top. But you don't come here for the food, you come here for... More

My husband and I spent a delightful evening, good food, good music, great ambiance! The House of Jazz has it all! The decor is fascinating, eclectic, interesting and worldly. Very welcoming and exciting. We enjoyed an excellent meal and drinks while being entertained by first a very good pianist and then an excellent trio. The very soulful young man, Mellow... More

There was a Jazz Orchestra on the evening we attended. All of the musicians were very, very good. They played a variety of jazz compositions and the audience seemed to be a combination of "regulars" and out of town visitors. There was a samll cover charge but the drinks were priced like any other we went to in Montreal. It... More

I think this place is great if you wish to go and see a live jazz show. The drinks are good but unfortunately the food is average. But still I would recommend it for an evening out with friends. You must know the clientele is mid-50 to 60, not a young crowd.

My husband had the jambalaya... it was made of the cheapest ingredients, microscopic shrimps, dried up sausage, dried rice, 4 tiny mussels dry dry dry dry!!!!! unfit for humane consumption. Along with the waitress who kept on arguing with us!!! the service was... 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.
