Arrivederci Wine & Jazz
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!
Love the food here and the wait staff. Always consistently great food and service
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.
We had a wonderful time listening to different people sing while Bo Ayers played the piano beautifully. The food & ambiance were great. A great place to go!
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!
Some of the best Italian food I’ve ever had outside of Italy. The overall experience was amazing and we plan on going back again soon.
Lovely restaurant! Amazing Italian food! Cocktails are spot on! Love the bartenders!
Amazing food and music, would definitely visit again!
Comfortable dining experience. Food was great. Live music entertaining. Service accurate, attentive and pleasant. Easy parking. All made for a nice date night out.
Great music, Davi Schmidt &PSA with Ron Steen filling in !!!! Always fun to hear Steve blow his horn! Fantastic service and exceptional food!!!!
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!
I frequently attend music events at Arrivederci, and enjoy the food, the vibe, the music, and the staff.
The service is usually good but not this time. Had to track someone down to get the check. The food was not as good as usual.
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.
I was very impressed with this place! The ambiance, service, quality of food was
fantastic! We will definitely be coming back and will let our friends and family know what a great place this is!
ENJOYED THE ATMOSPHERE AND THE WAITER. FOOD WAS QUITE TASTY
This is 2nd time I have beenthere. Good food . Great music, great fr ohendl staff. Steve is great Sax player. loved hearing him
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.
We have eaten at Arrivederci a number of times. The food and service are always top notch. Have recommended this place to many people.
Great food, great service and the music was terrific.
We love Arrivederci! Especially if we want to relax and escape from our hectic day! The decor and ambiance make me feel like on vacation! The service is exceptional!
A hidden gem! One of the best restaurants we've ever eaten at. The chef even came out and checked to see how our steak was. Love this place!!
One of our favorite neighborhood restaurants, always a delight!
I love this place. Food, service, atmosphere, music. All excellent
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!
Always enjoy this place! Derek suggested an excellent wine.
Great service and food as usual. We will always return to this unique venue.
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.
We had a wonderful time. The staff is so friendly and accommodating. The food was absolutely delicious and the drinks were excellent.
We will definitely be back.
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.
Anniversary-even though I submitted the occasion, it was overlooked.
Never been to this place before. What a find! Great atmosphere, food, and music. We will definitely go back there.
Great people and fun atmosphere!
Arrivederci is the best kept secret around! We love it!
Awesome place for vreat Italian food and music!
12 is us went there for a zclass reunion pre-function. we had our own space. which was great. we tried all the appetizers and all were excellent.
thank you for accommodating our group.
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!
