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

Great live music, especially jazz. The decor is a cozy upscale club. Really atmospheric. Great prices on burgers if you eat them at the bar

Stopped in late night for dessert with friends. Service was quick (it was late) and attentive. Dessert was good. Cocktail was well made. Have been here in the past for meals as well as shows.Experience over time has been hit or miss on food. Great venue for shows.

We had eaten there before and found it to be an average bar a restaurant. Would have preferred something else, but nothing was open. So we ate there again and had the same experience. Service was good, food was good, Nothing to right home about.

To start there was total chaos in getting us to our seats for the Ramsey Lewis 7pm show. They lined us up in a hallway until just before show started then we were led through the stage room into an adjoining room and past what must have been 40 people to the last table by the window and exit door....
