The atmosphere is so unique. Great live jazz, fabulous ambiance,good food. It really is a place like no other. I am actually more than a little biased since my now husband took me on out first date there. ;)

Nighttown has been around now for well over 40 years and is still going strong. It has a sophisticated, quiet ambience coupled with an interesting and varied menu. And, of course, there is the entertainment. It is one of the few, intimate, jazz venues in the Cleveland area.

Ordered the Grille and Greens salad with the flank steak. It. Was. Delicious! And I rarely eat blue cheese because it's so overpowering. But this was great. Just the right amount of dressing, excellent greens, tomatoes, olives, red onion, Gosh....just perfect. I guess I'm going to have to go there more often. Service was excellent.

When I first walked in to Nighttown I didn't know what to think. I was made aware that it has been a Cleveland staple for a while now. From my first step through the door until the time I left, I was greeted by a wonderful staff and incredible food. The restaurant is locally famous for their jazz club like... More

Nighttown has a smashingly great lunch menu with something for everyone's taste. We ate today on their lovely covered patio. Jeff was our waiter and he was most accommodating.

We have been customers of Nighttown for 20 plus years. Often go before the theater downtown - they are great at getting you in and out if you tell them you have tickets! Their early bird specials make a great pre- theater menu! Their prime rib is very good - as is the trout almondine. Actually, there isn't anything on... More

Six of us/3 generations were seated promptly on a Saturday evening per our reservations. Server r was attentive patient and helpful. Calamari appetizer good but late. Entrees were delicious but somewhat sparce. Rack of lamb was two double chops. Salmon And chicken Were excellent. Noise level a little high. I'd go back

Five of us went for a birthday celebration. We had reserved with a special request for the quieter of the rooms. Not only had they lost our reservation but we landed in the room that was noisiest. Recorded sound was so loud that everyone in the room was shouting to be heard over the rather unpleasant music. Requests to have... More

This is a great jazz club. Lots of seating is offered with different views of the stage. The show started on time with the band the Sonic Poets. The menu includes a lot of different entrées and appetizers. The food was delicious, and it was the best meal I had on my recent trip to Cleveland. Our server was excellent... More
