Great music and food!
Sep 2021
What a gem! An intimate jazz club with good food and drinks to boot. The dim sum appetizers from Black Cat made a surprisingly filling dinner, and the mixed drinks were inventive and flavorful. The band that night, Macy Blackman and the Mighty Tunes, played wonderfully. The space is intimate and cozy, and the music volume was perfect. What a pleasure hearing live music again!

Bad Times at Mr. Tipple's
May 2021
We went to an event on May 6, 2021, to hear Le Jazz Hot. The advertisement for the event stated that the $20 bar seats provided the best access to music in the room. That was incorrect and very misleading. The sound at the bar was terrible - we could barely the band. I complained to our waiter and one of the employees tried to improve the mix – but to no avail from our position. The speakers nearest us did not appear to be working. The $10 seats nearer the bandstand far better.

My friend’s braised beef arrived an hour after my food was served. I politely waited for his food to come out and ended up eating my food cold after we were told that his food was coming soon (wrong orders arrived in the interim and had to be sent back). My dumplings were very greasy and almost inedible - and my friend complained that his beef dish was very fatty.

While my friend waited an hour for food, they brought 2-3 incorrect dishes to us and ended up making mistakes on the final charges which I had to point out and correct the next day.

Ironically the sound in the bathroom was very good – loud and clear – but that was not where we paid to be seated.

I noted these points to the manager, Jay Bordeleau, and he wrote back a very nasty response and banned me from coming back to his club since my guest wrote a review "insulting the music talent" which was totally incorrect and false. (My guest writes a review and I get banned???).

It is very disappointing that management is so callous to those of us that wish to support live music.

Spend your money and time elsewhere.

Awesome Place to Catch some Jazz
Sep 2019
We had wrapped up some dinner in the area and had some friends recommend this jazz bar as a place to grab a nightcap after dinner. This was a great recommendation and really glad we had a chance to check this location out. They had some really good cocktails and really comfortable setting.

Nice, small live music place
Aug 2019 • Couples
Very civilized, non-crazy small place to listen to live music in San Francisco. $20/person minimum seems reasonable for setting. Had a nice night out with my wife.

Great jazz bar
Jul 2019 • Couples
It was crowded so hard to find a seat, but a staff member went out of his way to help us find seats.

No cover and drink prices are reasonable so a very good value for live music.

Fine Jazz Club in San Fran
May 2019 • Solo
I was in the area and stopped by to check out some local Jazz. Great local scene, excellent cocktails and very friendly locals. The act I saw was just OK but created a great vibe and played an extended set which got the crowd into the mood and up and about.
