Service was not very good, which was a first for us at this location. We were celebrating our anniversary and neither the hostess or our waiter seem to be aware of this from our reservation where we provided this info. All evening we had to flag down our waitress to get any service. She walked by us many many times, but didn’t seem to remember we were her table. Starting with our initial order placement, she never came back to ask us if we needed anything. I think I had to call her over four to five different times.

On the bright side, our food was delicious, and the live music was great.

After we were seated it took nearly 15 minutes before a server stopped at our table. After that it was not very attentive service. That's unacceptable for a place like this!

What an amazing place! The live music is so much fun and the food is fantastic as well! Everyone we’ve met on the service side has also been so friendly and helpful. Could not recommend this place more!

I brought my mum there to celebrate her 92nd birthday by listening to Tom Grant Trio. Neither of us are particularly fond of Italian food. We had several appetizers and our friends had dinners--it was absolutely magnificent. Perfect in every way. Would recommend this place to any jazz lover AND anyone who loves a good selection of beautifully prepared food. Absolutely will be visiting again.

Food was good, not great but good. Pizza had no flavor but the spaghetti carbonara was very good. They dont have enough wait staff to go round. They have tables in the front jammed right next to the instruments like the piano. Glad not to have had to sit there. Overall the meal was good.

One of our favorite places for food or just a drink. Happy hour can be a bit energetic but that's because everyone is Happy!

Our reservation was for 6:15pm but we didn’t get service until about 6:40pm after one of our party got up to get someone. The waiter apologized and said we got missed. He did honor happy hour pricing the first round of drinks and eats which was really nice. From that point on the service was great. Food was really tasty!

It’s all about the music! Wide variety of music types - this night was a full latin jazz band with the iconic Bobby Torres Ensemble. His guest vocalist, Karla Harris, was the main draw and she did not disappoint! Steve and Katie (the owners) are wonderful hosts and have provided Milwaukie with one of Portland area’s best jazz venues. Be advised: Once the music starts, servers get very busy because the place usually fills up for the first set. Come early to eat and talk, then settle in for the very best music available anywhere in town. Be patient for you dinner, ‘cause every bite will be worth the wait. Extensive wine and beer list.

Server was very good. We didn't want to be rushed, and she saw to it that we were well done with our appetizer before serving the entree. Food was all delicious, but the calamari and dipping sauce were outstanding.

It would be nice if you had blinds on the windows. As cars drove the reflection of the sun off the cars was very uncomfortable on the eyes- other than that - all was perfect!

Enjoyed a lovely meal with friends. The food was excellent. Our portions were large enough that food was taken home. Our waitress was just the right amount of attentive. We ate before music started. We would recommend spaghetti carbonara.

Loved the music, but a bit loud. My friend called her hubby to deliver ear plugs. lol I did not have a meal, so I can't comment there. I felt trapped in the tiny space in the corner by the door. I could not get passed the table in front of us without disturbing them. It's a small venue though, so I understand having as much seating as possible. It would have been more enjoyable with elbow room, but maybe that's not possible. All in all, not a bad experience. Good live music is a treat these days. Maybe comfort is not the highest priority and it's a trade off. Also, Milwaukie/Oak Grove is not known for dining and/or entertainment, so I appreciate that.

Wished I had known the layout since I was there for the entertainment and my reservation was not close. Will know better when Kit returns in October!
