Even though we didn't have reservations, they did their best to seat us and to let us know if any cancellations. The food was amazing - delicious quesadilla and awesome shrimp. Tip - do make a reservation if you plan on seeing the 8pm show...More

We loved this restaurant! We didn’t make a reservation, which is recommended because of the nature of the small space and live music, but the waiter still went out of his way to find us a table. We sat on the back terrasse so we...More

You don't talk while the band is playing--this is a serious place for jazz. And the band was certainly worth listening to. They started promptly at 8:30 pm, played for about 50 minutes and then took a "short break"--for an hour. It is a dark,...More
