Busy place , good drinks and good music. Stopped in for late night drink and listen to some music. Atmosphere of a throw back era, fun times with friends

Beautiful atmosphere (you expect Bogie to walk in) creative cocktails, great service and happy hour. Our out of town guests went every night while visiting.

This place has one of the best vibes in the area. It is like being in a big city jazz bar or speak easy. I took my wife here for a child-less date and it was perfect. We got an intimate table in the corner and had great food and drinks while listening to a cool jazz band. If you want to splurge and feel like you are on a vacation in a big city, this place is for you.

Ace Gillett's is really one of the coolest places in town. Whether you go on a night with jazz or without it, the atmosphere is amazing, and the staff is always friendly, helpful, and unobtrusive. The drinks are absolutely fantastic, and all the food I've sampled (over several visits) has been surprisingly superb. (I say 'surprisingly' because with such a cool atmosphere and emphasis on interesting drinks, I assumed--incorrectly--that they would skimp on the food like many other bars). The drink menu changes over time, and the food and beverage selection is varied so everyone can walk away pleased. Great place for a date, a 'girls night out', or just a relaxing escape from the ordinary. HIGHLY RECOMMEND as a must-go place!

Went to Ace Gillett's to listen to its regular jazz combo in old town. It was a very nice experience. The music was relatively easy listening and the surroundings promoted a shared intimacy without intrusion from neighboring couples (somewhat rare in a non-booth setting). Wines and alcoholic drinks were reasonably priced and tasty.The gnocchi was fairly tasty. Biggest criticism was the limited variety in the menu...the seafood was primarily sushi-based...there was little -- if any -- traditional poultry on the menu (most was duck-based) and that made it difficult to order. The desserts, however, were quite tasty (chocolate souffle & sorbets).
