“Live music always!!”
Reviewed March 24, 2012

You can ALWAYS find live music in either San José or Escazú! Jazz Café features everything from jazz, rock, tropical Latin music, fusion, world music and more!! Food is NOT the best so I suggest you go have dinner at a nice restaurant before the concert and then go have a great time with live music. You should always try to reserve your table/seats so you can guarantee a space.

“Great Music”
Reviewed February 23, 2012

Offers a variety of music and at times an open mic night. There two, one in San Pedro and the other in Escazu. The entrance fee keeps rising, which is a little disappointing and the menu prices are average for this type of place. The food is fairly good and the service is always friendly. If you go a few times, they do remember you, which gives the place it's warmth. Note: If you go early in the week, the entrance fee is cheaper.

“a tradition”
Reviewed February 1, 2012

I prefer the original Jazz Cafe near UCR, even though it is small, smoky and there is no real dance floor. On a good night you feel like you've found a jewel but on a bad night.... well, it can be bad with young, inexperienced musicians doing bad covers.
