About Blue Martini Jazz Cafe
Relax, sit back, feel the flow of some of Vancouver’s finest musicians. Move to the rhythm of the room. We bring the flavor of fame to the menu, right from the Kitchen of our sister restaurant, Francesco’s Ristorante Italia. In the heart of Kitsilano, we’ve got the West Coast beach vibe with a modern twist of comfortable style. Just like jazz, we mix it up with the martinis and the menu, from Italy to New Orleans. Dress up, dress down, places to be, places to be seen and places to relax. Get intimate for two or invite your whole crew. Groups of friends or private parties, we are your host.

Blue Martini Jazz Cafe Ratings and Reviews
I will not recommend this place for anyone. You can easily save your money and find a much better restaraunt to spend it on. The service is outrageously slow (I spent 3 hours at the restaraunt) and poor as well. It was clear that certain customers were recieving better treatment than others. Food was satisfactory at best.
The food was okay however I found it quite annoying when the maitre d (or the owner) talked to us in a rude manner. He kind of treated us like a number when confirming our reservation. Although the music was amazing.
When visiting Vancouver this is a favourite spot to enjoy good live music and delicious food! The blue martinis are a treat and the lighting and ambiance provides the nicest local for a special date or to meet with friends💜
Very poor service and the food was disappointing. Dishes were not cleared from table and bill was not brought to the table. When I went to the front to pay I waited for several minutes before our server appeared and then he didn't know who I was after serving us at our table! I will not recommend dining at blue martini!
We really enjoyed our dinner at Blue Martini. We were there on Tuesday night with the pasta night and it was a great deal and delicious too. The service was good and the ambience was excellent. The music was very enjoyable and added to alot to our evening. Overall, it was a great night out to Blue Martini! We are going back tomorrow night!
Loved the small plate/tapas sharing options. We had the filet mignon carpaccio, mussels vin blanc, bruschetta pomodoro and antipasto). It was a great way to pace the evening meal while enjoying the live music. There are all too few small live music venues like this around the city; happy to support the format
What a great surprise! I haven't been to a jazz club since I was in Chicago and this place lived up to my expectations. Our waiter Carlos was nothing short of perfect. Pleasant, polite, happy and very knowledgeable of the menu. We all started with unique martinis which were all very tasty. I had the filet and it was cooked to perfection and very flavorful. The creme brulee is spectacular! The ambiance was wonderful and the music was out of this world Siobhan Walsh has an amazing voice! I can't wait to go back!
A great nite! The drinks and good were great! The entertainment was so nice - not too loud do we could still visit and enjoy each other as well as the music!
Third visit and we will be back!
Such a lovely place and good food!
Ambience was great! Music is fabulous! Service was impeccable! Food was very good but could’ve been a couple of degrees warmer.
Blue Martini has become 1 of my favourite dining spots .. food is consistently delicious & the music is very enjoyable. Great service & friendly staff. Will be back again :)
Picked this venue because we wanted to have some jazz while in Vancouver. Staff was very friendly. since we had dinner, did not have to pay a cover charge for the music. small, intimate venue for music, well worth the trip. Menu a mixture of Italian and Louisiana style dishes, all prepared and served well.
Amazing service, food and great ambience. Would definitely go back for the experience and the chocolate ganache cake!
We had great food and attentive service. The Jazz music was engaging and well done.
Had a Great evening the Staff were very accommodating enjoy the Martini's and food
We went to the Restaurant because of it's Jazz Music reputation. They had a single musician not the Jazz that we expected but still had a wonderful evening and will certainly return on a Friday or Saturday for the Jazz.
Very nice venue and friendly staff.
Food is also good .Entertainment also enjoyable
Service was slow, I ordered spaghetti and meatballs and the server brought me just 4 meatballs. I was told it shouldn't take very long for the order but ended up waiting another 15 minutes before the meal arrived and my daughters dinner was placed under heat lamp while we waited so we could eat together. The manager came by and said you ordered meatballs and I said no I ordered spaghetti, I didn't get an I'm sorry your order got mixed up instead I was made to feel I was the one who made the mistake.
We were a group o 6 people celebrating a birthday. We arrived during happy hour and were almost the last to leave. The food was great and the music was excellent (although it wasn't Jazz music). We will be back for sure.
I took my mom for a late mother's day dinner while she was in town and we went with two other friends - I had purchased the Groupon for a three course dinner for four. I had not heard of the restaurant until I saw the Groupon, which was fantastic value. I would definitely return to this restaurant! We thoroughly enjoyed the music, the martinis and every course was delicious (especially the Jack Daniels Peppercorn steak), as well as large portions. Our server was really attentive and personal; even though the restaurant was busy, we never felt forgotten at any moment.
place is great. very elegant setup and decor. The Jazz was fantastic. food was very tasty. wine list was great and the service was very good and very friendly/ we will come again. thaks for a lovely evening we had this last Sunday night,
Great food and music but music can be difficult to hear due to diners talking loudly.
Their the specialty, the Blue Martini is wonderful. They have a great selection of cocktails. Love the jazz atmosphere.
Almost want to keep this place a secret lest it becomes too popular! Love the live jazz, staff are engaging and food is delightful.
Great place, good food, nice music, service is average.
Birthday and trying out one neighbourhood restaurant.
It was a birthday celebration, had an awesome time
Food was okay. Jambalaya was a disappointing. Even though we stayed and spent a considerable amount on dinner, we were charged cover for a mediocre band. I told the waitress that I felt they should eliminate or at least lower the cover for those buying dinner or spending a certain amount. She asked me if I wanted to tell the manager. I agreed that I would be happy to speak to him. Her proceeded to argue with me and got very indignant. I told him it was a suggestion for the future and he got very rude. The waitress actually apologized for his behaviour. I would not go back largely due to his behaviour.
Good restaurant with okay food and good service. Music was a bit loud and definitely not jazz. Good deals during happy hour. Cool room with cool lighting 😎
Good place, fun, nice atmosphere, good food.
Music was great, the only thing negative was that it was really loud and we couldn't talk to each other.
If they tuned it down a bit, I would definitely come back.
Great ambience , amazing food and lovely service ! Thank you blue martini chef and staffs !
Awesome experience. Great menu and music.
It's quite a bit wait between appetizers and entrees. I guess because they're fairly busy, almost full house on a Sunday night.
Overall, we'd a great time!
Sunday Jazz Jam from 6-9 pm is awesome. The food was good and we were well served. Lighting is a bit dark, you shouldn't need your pho e to read the menu.
Great food, great ambience, great service, great music! A nice change from our usual dining routine and enjoyed the music (Spectrum) plus the night club ambience . Would definitely return for another date night!
Incredible spot. Atmosphere and food both superb. For the quality of food the prices were more than fair.
An upscale gem in Kits. Cosy but intimate. Wonderful ambience. Loved the blue lighting but tables lit well enough to not have to struggle reading the menu.
Mussels appy was delicious & the lemon chicken with capers, outstanding as was the creme brulee. One of the best we've had anywhere! Service was friendly & attentive. Great live music & dancing means we'll be returning on a regular basis!
We visited late night.
Servers didnt introduce table right away, so we waited few minutes.
We ordered tiramisu and cream brulee.
I found a hair in tiramisu. It was so bad.
We said that problem to our server.
However, she didnt say any sorry and just took it.
We are upset. we told to manager. but his attitude is also not good. Anyway, we didnt pay about tiramisu.
Im so disappointed.
Additionally, music is not jazz. its like a country songs. Its diffrent to my expectation. but pretty good mood.
We had a great time my meal was excellent. I would certainly return.
My date said she has never had a better date in her life.
Very good service, food wasn't great, steak was tougher than expected but it's a good change as you don't get a live band most places. Prices without groupon are quite high, $10 cover charge and $39 for a 8 oz steak that isn't tender with 2 prawns.
