The food is delicious, the music is fun, and the owner could not have been friendlier. We heard the restaurant was great but everything exceeded expectations!

I saw the reviews here on trip advisor and I’m happy I followed their tips! Rico is an amazing host! He talked to me as a long time friend, gave me the best advices and a lot of hope to see the Auroras! I tried...the pernil and the organic guava juice Oh Gosh! Can’t explain how tasty is their food!!!! I loved it! You have to try!!!More

The food and service is always on point. They offer a unique service that I have seen no where else and their live music is top of the line musicianship. Definitely recommend.

This place is a Hidden Gem!!! Food was delicious 😋 I had cuban sandwich, which I never expected to find good tasty cuban sandwich in Alaska! Paired with Merlot wine and suddenly I smell sweet aroma of cake 🍰 Tres leches cake was divine! And...to top off the night, the owners are musicians 🎶🎤🎷🎹 🥁🎼 Latin jazz all night babe! Wednesday - Saturday. We'll definitely be back!More

The best steak prices were out, no veggies or plantains on the pork plate and for the price and hype overrated. Liked the Thai places much better.

When we walked up to the Jazz Bistro late on Saturday night we found it was closed! But then the Chef (didn't catch her name) walked out and told us we could eat next door at their Latino Nights! The live music was AMAZING! The...Cuban menu was the best meal we had in FAI ALL weekend!! We were so glad to stumble across this place and had the time of our lives. The 6 of us were all able to salsa dance the night away. The Staff and the Band were all so friendly and helped teach us the basics of salsa. They even coax the most timid in our group on the dance floor. 10/10. 5 Stars. Would recommend and come again next time I'm in the area!More

Virtually every review raves about Jazz Bistro, and I'm no exception. The food, the friendly, professional, and warm atmosphere are amazing for any city; to be in Fairbanks is incredible! No real need to go into details, as everything has been said before. Just know...that, to me at least, all of the best reviews still fall a bit short in describing the great flavors, friendly atmosphere and terrific service at Jazz Bistro.More
