This was our first foray into the jazz scene in Chicago other than the jazz concerts at the CSO. We were very pleased with Andy's. the music with the group Bowmanville and the food and the drinks, everything was excellent. We will definitely be back.

Got there for the 5pm show, so quiet and great listening for the first half, especially sitting up front. A little noisy later as the place filled up.

The music that night was ordinary at best but the bigger issue is that I’ve been going there for years and didn’t know they had recently changed the menu. The food is now really bad and the choices are limited. They used to have very good pizza. Gone. They used to have a great salad that my wife loved. Gone. In any case we used to love this place but any future visits will be carefully selected based on the artists performing and we will eat before we arrive.

lots of fun. Food was average. Salmon was dry with box mash potatoes. Chicken parm was juicy, and served hot. Salad was very good. Crab cakes I think were a frozen, microwave product. Price was reasonable. Very good supper club with live jazz. Get there early for a good table. Arrive at 6:50 to get a good 7:15 table. That allows time to sit, have a cocktail, order food and wait 10 mins for the second set of the early show. perfect timing. you're out by 9, or you can sit at the bar for the next act.

We took some friends from out of town to Andy's for the music. We booked a table for dinner because we didn't want to take a chance on not getting a seat for the show. We had never eaten there before, and were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food. It's probably not the best spot to go with true foodies, but if you like live jazz it is a fun spot to be and definitely worth going ahead and making a dinner reservation in order to guarantee a seat. We arrived at the start of the 7:00 show and chose to leave shortly after the end of the set, even though (on a Saturday night) we were not yet being asked to give up our table for another reservation. Overall, it was a fun evening.

I was really looking forward to going here because I had heard a lot of good things about it. The music was fantastic, but unfortunately, everything else about the dining experience was not. We had three different servers during the time we were there and each one of them was unfriendly, one was even rude at one point. I got the street tacos and they were bland and cold. My date got the calamari which was pretty good. Needless to say, go for the music, not the food or service. I’m sure there are other places in the city with equally good music but better service and food.

I expected mediocre food at a Jazz bar, but dinner was delicious! Loved the options, even the deserts and the drink menu. But of course the highlight is the live music - great quality jazz combos, Sunday night guests at the mic, a very cool vibe. Super glad we went!

Ambiance was very nice just as one could expect from a jazz bar, not that I'm an expert by any means. Service was generally pleasant although I was a little surprised by the $10 per person cover charge even though we were having diner there. The food was overall good, didn't have very high expectations. The risotto was well cooked but not particularly flavorful. Shrimp where we'll sized and well seasoned. Chicken parmesan was also good but too much pasta water in the plate which made the breading a little soggy. Overall a nice experience and I would recommend going for a nice of live jazz music.

Went there for my birthday which was the reason for being in Chicago. The $15 per person (cash only) cover charge even for patrons dining was a bit much. The food was good and the live music fabulous. Our waiter had a bit of an attitude and not as attentive as he should’ve been but still a great evening.

This place is awesome! The music was so good and entertaining. We could have stayed there all night. The only complaint that we had is the 2 hour table limit. This is completely understandable. It is necessary in this setting to limit dining to the 2 hour limit to help with table reservations. However, to collect a cover charge and then limit the time seemed unfair. The cover to hang in the bar is fine. However, since we were eating, there was no space in the bar after our two hour limit. So, we had to leave. It was still great and mostly we loved the music. So, if you want great jazz, this is your place.

Overall it’s a great environment. Good food and drinks. Service was decent considering how busy it was and the room is packed pretty tight. Jazz musicians were excellent and really engaged the audience. Only downside is the $15 cash only per person door charge, even if you’re there for dinner. Make sure you have cash in-hand whether you have a dinner reservation or just sitting in the bar area. We would definitely go again.
