Blue Martini Jazz Cafe
Fri, Sat 4:00 pm–12:00 am
Great place with excellent live music. Food was good but a little on the pricey side.
Booked it for the love music but the musician decided to be sick that night so..
Very standard food for the price. The service wasn't very good.
I expected more, to be honest. The food was not great and the drinks were mixed with cheap ingredients. The ambiance and music were great though.
Had a blast. Good bluesy vibe. Obviously a favourite with the locals. Food was good but the music was even better.
It was a great night! The food was excellent; and our waiter, Thomas, was engaging and provided fabulous service. The music for the night was provided by Big Daddy, a Classic Rock band; and man, did they ever nail it! Great delivery of some classic rock songs. We love jazz music as well and we'll be back to enjoy another night soon...
The ambience was perfect - wonderful food and drink, great energy, and fantastic live music thanks to the incredible Uno Mas! We will definitely go to Blue Martini next time Uno Mas is playing.
We miss the Sunday night jazz jam. Music and food were good. Our server was nicely attentive.
Food was very good and price was moderate
We enjoyed the live music
Only issue was the super rude waiter he was not friendly and seemed like did not want to be there
Waiter never smiled or said anything useful quickly took order and disappeared
We will definitely will go back and I hope to have a different server next time
The restaurant was absolutely the best! Our server Carlos was fantastic and the drinks are top shelf! The food was some of the best in BC. Everyone should go!!!! AND the band was so much fun to dance to. I will take another group of friends there again very soon.
Food was great, and nothing about the service was terrible, but I didn’t feel very welcomed or wanted tbh. I would go again, but only if the music was of real interest to me.
Enjoyed the music to the food to the drinks - it sure was a night we will not forget for a long time and you will surely see us back
Great food, wonderful service, awesome live music. Highly recommended.
Disappointed in the pasta. Too much tomato sauce. Caesar salad tasteless
Cool place in Kits just across from the park. It sits close to a pretty busy intersection and other restaurants which makes it a good place for people watching. Service was good, not real polished but certainly adequate. Food was tasteful and portions were a good size. Wine selection is a little lame and drinks aren’t cheap.
We never made it inside partly because it was a nice evening on the patio and because the live music never showed. Kinda the reason we went...
We would go again especially to see the entertainment we missed.
An amazing place, close to the beach, where you can have very nice cocktails before enjoying great meals with a pleasant and efficient service while listening some live Jazz music... well, sounds like a perfect way to spend time isn't it?!
Great Jazz venue
Ceiling so low, with live music? Not good. Love the service fast and friendly, too expensive with cover charged after 8 o’clock per person? Broke for one 🍷 one dessert and pasta... for that kind of place??? 80 dollar not worth driving 😂😂😂
We celebrated our anniversary dinner on Friday night. Our server was very attentive and made our evening perfect.
The house band was fantastic and we didn't want to leave. The limoncello frozen dessert was delicious.
My only complaint was that for a reserved table for two, it wasn't great- I had to sit with my back to the stage- but I scooted sideways as the evening went on so I could see too.
Excellent seat in front of band... Jim Byrnes ..beautiful ambience... perfect sound... perfect heat control... perfect service.... unfortunately this is the second visit and second time the food was not very good. Bad actually. We will still come back... and hopefully this time the food will be better... we didn't say a thing to our waitress and tipped her well.. not her fault.. the catfish was stinky.. fishy...oily.. mushy... just a mess but I was hungry and didn't want to ruin our time so I ate it.. ugh can't believe I did but I had to.
The Blue Martini Jazz Club - has a New York Jazzy feel to it.
Vancouver is such a beautiful city, but places where we can kick back and enjoy good music are hard to find. We are fortunate to have a venue such as this.
Greatly enjoyed the blues act we went in order to see. He was worth the $20/person cover charge (which wasn't mentioned in the Facebook ad.) The bill even without cover charge was higher than comparable food/drink at other Vancouver restaurants we frequent and we would need a very special live act to entice us there again. Can see why the online menu is without prices listed, they are a bit steep.
I go there for the jazz music. It's so wonderful to be able to have fabulous food and experience even more fabulous music. Great hot spot and an exciting night!!!! And you can dance!!!
Love having the musicians while we eat!
Awesome spot, great food, fair price.
We will come back.
We received amazing food and outstanding service at the Blue Martini. We booked our table online and upon arrival learned that there was a $20 per person cover charge for the musicians. The only indication was a small sign on the desk, hand written with a sharpie. I would advise Blue Martini to note on their website when a cover charge may apply to their live music evenings.
My son and daughter-in-law were visiting and I mentioned the Blue Martini and since we all enjoy jazz they thought it was a great idea. To start we shared the Antipasto which was large enough for the three of us to enjoy - and we did. Our waiter (sorry I don't know his name) was helpful in recommending food choices and made sure to our drink orders were attended to. The ribs were to die for and the steak choices were excellently juicy and tender. Enjoyed listening to Cannery Road as well. A most enjoyable evening and I know I'll be back!
Great spot for a far or a special occasion.
I attended to see a performer and his band. It made for an intimate setting especially since I had seen them on stage before. This at least gave an opportunity to be able to chat with them after their show.
We found the Blue Martini Jazz Cafe because our favorite guitarist (Pavlo) was performing there. Before this I had never heard of the place. Managed to find a groupon for a 4 course meal for 2. We got there and was immediately in love. The food was excellent, service was phenomenal and the entertainment was the best. It is a very intimate setting were you are close to the performers, was the best date night. I will definitely be back to check out other artists.
the jazz music was wonderful
Table are close together easy to make new friends
All the staff we very friendly. Sat at the bar. The guys we awesome!
An overall great night!
Lovely as always! Nice server and a treat to have live music!
Very poor service. The automatic gratuity of 15% for a table of 2 was unexpected. It's no surprise that the servers did not care about service. Kitchen was extremely slow and I had to ask for the bill after waiting nearly 40 min after our dessert plates were cleared from our table.
Was overall ok. Had two servers. First guy had some attitude and basically ignored us after we ordered light (was after 9pm). Second guy who served second drinks and deserts was awesome. May or may not return.
Amazing place amazing food, and a bonus our waiter was Serbian (I am as well) he ended up being the nicest guy in the world! Will definitely be back here, actually can’t wait !
Great Place! Enjoyed the food and live music ...
We loved the music at the Sunday night jam session. We received a lot of food in the 4 course meal, and it was tasty. I’d definitely return, and try the more extensive regular menu!
Was so excited to come to this place cause me and my husband love jazz and restaurants with live bands. We can all the way from Richmond to kits to be severely disappointed that there was no music that day due to the musician’s illness. As a restaurant that specializes in Jazz music they should have a plan B when this happens. The food was also just ok, having the catfish and tiramisu for dessert. The tiramisu was very soggy at the bottom and seemed like it was defrosted.
