    Overall, very very nice for a jazz night out. I think the staff are spread a little thin, so you may have to wait for your drinks a little longer than usual. Great ambience, and great music. Forget the food. Subpar.

    Nice venue. Service was great, we really enjoyed our server. Great jazz. Only complaint is the rack of lamb was way overcooked. Ordered medium and came out well done. Next time I'll order rare and it should come out right lol. Anyway, definitely recommend the venue.

    We have never been to Canada before. In searching for places with Live music, Jazz Bistro was very inviting! We were celebrating our 2 year Anniversary. The night we experienced was so romantic, fun and set the mood for a memorable evening! The food, drinks, staff and Grooveyard were all so amazing. In addition to the gentleman playing piano earlier! Thank you for a memorable experience! When we come back to Canada, we will be back 100%!!! ❤️🇨🇦❤️

    This is my first time at the Jazz bistro and I was blown away by the Entertainment! The Sondheim project was extraordinary! The food service on the other hand, needed a little care. But overall, I would definitely return and was super impressed

    My friend and I were at the Jazz Bistro to hear the Sondheim Jazz Project. Our meals were fabulous - lamb shanks with vegetables cooked perfectly - and our service, attentive, prompt. The room was quiet for the show, which I appreciated. The piano is a very good piano, and it is well-maintained. I love the Bistro for its excellent music, and always dependable food. It's a great evening out.

    This was our second visit to The Jazz Bistro & it was just as wonderful as the first time! The atmosphere is fantastic, the food delicious, and the staff incredibly friendly. It has instantly become our go to restaurant for nights out in the city! The perfect way to start or end a night in the theatre district!

    We typically love this place however a few issues this time around. - We reserved a 2nd floor table and they left a message an hour before we got there to tell us that the 2nd floor isnt open until 6pm because shortage of staff. So we agreed to sit at a table until 6pm and then we would be escorted to the 2nd floor for the balance of our meal. No one came for us! - Meal was sticky and not really hot. - After requesting hot cappuccino’s for us, they came luke warm. - On the plus side because of the meal, the dessert came free.

    Very disappointed from the experience having dinner at Jazz Bistro. Nothing against our server, he was apologetic all the time for the experience we had. The the food was beyond poor in quality and taste. I never seen a lamb shank that’s so hard and rubbery like this, it was so hard and has after taste. Also the steak was served cold with some french fries not worth the $40 The food was extremely poor and tasted so bad. Our reservation was at 9:30 pm and we came at the middle of the first show which we had to pay a cover charge $20 each and apparently if we wanted to continue seating through the next show we would pay additional cover charge $15 per person. Something I never experienced in my life. So to attend both shows while you have dinner the cover charge will be $35 per person. I am a big fan and listener to Jazz music for almost 25 years however this restaurant plays the weirdest and the most unenjoyable jazz music I ever listened too!

    Excellent venue for a Jazz experience. Great acoustics. Wait staff were extremely attentive and service quick. LOVED the little focaccia and dip they provided at the beginning. Best I have ever had! Ordered the charcuterie board with meat. A little sparse, the prosciutto was excellent but the other 2 meats not to my liking at all. Would have liked a little cheese on the plate too. Overall I would recommend the Jazz Bistro.

    We arrived intending to have dinner and listen to the music. After the music started we discovered that the Bistro's quiet policy (to listen to the music) only applied to their late performances. Although we enjoyed the music immensely, we left after the first set, not having had dinner, because we could not hear the music. We would highly recommend that late performances.

    We had dinner at the jazz bistro, before heading to Massey Hall. It was so perfect! The lamb shank, the seafood etoufee , and bread pudding for dessert were all delicious. The cocktails too. All enjoyed were while listening to a great guy on piano who took a request for our song,” Our Love is Here to Stay.”
