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.
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.
Food was good. The ambience was amazing!! I would definitely go back!
The Music was fantastic and food was very impressive. We'll be booking a larger party soon!!
It was a Dine Out Vancouver choice because it has live music. We enjoyed the decor and the music. The food was very good and service was great! We’re so glad we found it and will definitely return.
We were introduced to the Blue Martini through Vancouver Dine Out. Very nice date night. A+ for service, ambience, and staff. Live music was wonderful, although it was quite folksy (not jazz) on our night. Dine Out Menu means limited choices. Clam Chowder incredible A+, stuffed chicken breast and salmon mains were really tasty with good portions A+, Tiramisu dessert (soggy) only downside - dessert was not up to snuff for a restaurant being given an opportunity to 'strut its stuff' for new customers. Otherwise a great find and a new 'go to' restaurant for us with easy parking nearby. Thank you for an enjoyable evening out.
We really enjoyed our time at Blue Martini! Excellent service and friendly staff ! Loved the atmosphere and the live music. Food didn’t quite meet our expectations but we’ll definitely give it another try because we enjoyed everything else so much !
It was my husband’s birthday. I reserved a table in advance. We got fantastic seats and the music was really good. Great service, amazing Tiramisu and a really great time all around. We will be back!
Amazing! Food excellent, Drinks delicious. Great Ambience. Waiter was uptight but other than that it was perfect!
We had an awesome time. Great food and service. We will be back for sure.
we had such a lovely time. had no idea about the Blue Martini. The groupon got us in the door and we'll be back oodles of time. Well treated; excellent service and just a delightful evening. The owners have the key to guest service. barbara and fred baines
We went here for NYE, what a treat! Our server was wonderful, the food was outstanding and the live music was great. Everyone there was having such a great time. We will definitely be back!
Food was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. Great cocktails. Nice ambience. Perfect for a date night. Clam chowder with puffy pastry is a must have.
We went there for my son's birthday and ended up with 10 people who all thoroughly enjoyed the food, the music and dancing.
Nice resturant but 2 out of the six meals were sent back so a bit disappointing
The food is not great and too expensive for what it is. Maybe just a place for drinks.
Last min Xmas
Food menu was limited, bc I used a Groupon voucher. Waiter kind of rude. Ordered appetizer platter, salmon and tiramisu. Platter is just like everywhere. Salmon was over cooked and tasted a little bit bitter. The crab meat on the top of salmon is also kind of random. Tiramisu contained way too much alcohol than it usually does. That's my view.
We had a great experience at the Blue Martini, food was great and good entertainment. So nice to have great food with jazz music! I would highly recommend the Blue Martini. Great for any occasion. Service was great too. Loved the style of the restaurant...blue lights were a hilight.
This is a cool place. They follow their blue theme well closely. The space was pretty open but it wasn't very loud where we can't hear each other. Food was fantastic. We ordered a number of dishes to share and enjoyed all of them. Very tasty and well seasoned. Their happy hour drinks are a bargain compared to their regular prices (some up to 50% off).
Everyone of us were pleasantly surprised as it was the 1st time for all of us. We would definitely come back.
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 :)
