“"Great Everything"”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

I grew up in Winter Park and Maitland. Though I've been gone from the area since 1999 I still visit my immediate family in the area about a half dozen times a year.

I had the opportunity to visit Jazz Tastings a couple months ago once I found out the Copper Rocket had no live entertainment that night. The owner Rory was very personable and I really enjoyed hearing a bit of his story.

We had a few drinks, wine and some tapas. Everything was very good and the wine pairings suggested were excellent.

All that said, the star of the show was the band. High energy jazz and R&B in a contemporary and hip atmosphere. Can't wait to visit my family again.

On a side note, our crowd ranged in age from 34 to 69 and everyone enjoyed everything about Jazz tastings.

I hope you like it just as much.

“EXCELLENT”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

The owners were very involved, going around to every table and going out of their way to find seats at the bar for us and then a table when one became available. Excellent customer service and great atmosphere! The crab cakes were delicious...good wine list too. Live jazz and wine -- I can't wait to go back!

“Small Jazz Club with a Big City Flavor”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

Located in a small plaza in Maitland, this jazz club brings big city ambiance, a great wine selection, sophisticated tapas, and first class performances to the area.! It brings welcomed relief from the commercial theme park and chain restaurant fare that permeates the area. There is a modest cover charge added when the music starts but it is worth every penny, The owners and staff go out of their way to make your experience memorable. I would suggest that you make reservations early as the space fill up quickly, especially on weekends.

“Classy, Laid Back and Fun”
Reviewed June 14, 2012

a welcome alternative to the touristy entertainment of City walk - Universal. This place is small with comfortable living room type seating. interesting variety of light Tapas, Crab cakes, Scallops and Chicken and waffles ranging from $10-14. good wines but the draw is super music. they had a 5 piece jazz band with excellent horn players. trumpet and trombone, keybord, guitar and drums. an impressive and fun place for night out with friends or a date.

“Relaxed Atmosphere with a Cover Charge”
Reviewed May 21, 2012

We arrived at 8:00 p.m. and were promptly greeted by Owner Rory and quickly seated. It is a small establishment that filled up quickly and just as quickly emptied. We ordered the Lump Blue Crab Cakes and Fried Green Tomato Stack which were served as Tapas. There were three of each. They were both tasty with nice sauces. The house Merlot was adequate. The Jazz trio that played were good but nothing out of the ordinary. The down side to Jazz Tastings is the $5.00 cover charge. It's a nice place to go for a change but we probably won't be regulars. There are alot of really nice places to go eat and hear music that do not charge a cover. The owner needs to pay for the jazz - not the patrons.
