Great place! Love the atmosphere! Maybe add some more affordable red wine choices, even a wine flight. Or a house wine. We stay for hours and it ads up. Love the food music and have many friends that go with us. Thanks

Food is always outstanding and it doesn’t matter what you order, it is all fabulous. Don’t really like being seated in the bar since it’s so noisy and have reservations, but overall worth the trouble of having to deal with the traffic. Service is great too.

Service could be improved on busy music nights. We waiting a long time for drinks and food. They really pack you in on weekends, but I guess that's part of the fun.

Arrived on Friday evening for 6 o'clock reservation and was seating promptly in the bar which filled up quickly and grew quite noisy. There are better tables in the dining room.
Service was pleasant if leisurely. Wife had the ravioli which was quite good. I ordered the gnocchi and it was very tasty although too salty for my liking. Caeser salad was unremarkable but freshly made and featured some nice parmesan shavings. I would try it again while specifying a table in the main dining room.

Excellent dinner. The only suggestion is that your on line menu prices should be updated to match actual.

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!

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.
