JD's Bistro and Grille
Premier Jazz and Fine Dining.
Sadly, the Menu has been reduced and some favorites are no longer available.
My garlic mashed potatoes were lukewarm and had too much garlic...had to season them. Steak was awesome, wine (McMurry) was delicious and the desert divine. Service was ok, music was GREAT! LOVED that they sang 'Happy Birthday' to my husband, that made it soooo memorable and made him happy!!! THANK YOU!
It was my first time their I took my boyfriend because it was his birthday we were very disappointed the service was not good at all we had to wait for a glass of wine for 15minutes and our food came first and my chicken was not cooked it was roar very bad experience!
Great venue for listening to some excellent Jazz. Food is quite expensive but the menu is fairly wide. The steak was not especially tasty, but the lobster dish was excellent.
Great food, service and jazz quartet! They need to advertise more! Only seven table full while we were there. A hidden gem!
Food was excellent. Interesting menu. Soft jazz music. The musicians were very good, playing mostly sixties and seventies. It was a bit too loud for dinner music. At one point, the singer asked if it was too loud. I responded yes, and he turned it down, which was better. Overall, I would recommend this place and we will go back.
Our first time there and we enjoyed it very much. Just wish the music played longer- we would have stayed for drinks and dessert!
Food was good, portions small(especially the tiny lobster tail) for the price.
Service was slow. Took forever to get our wine and water
Music was excellent!!! The music is the main reason that we will return
Awful experience. We won’t go back. When we arrived, we waited 10 minutes for anyone to acknowledge us. We were then seated and left for a number of minutes. Ordered drinks and they were served in very small glasses. Waited several more minutes to hear what their specials. Server then left fro several more minutes before actually coming back and taking our order. After at least a half hour, we were served our dinners. We both ordered fillet mignon. Both fillets tasted charred. My wife had asparagus and mashed potatoes. Both were cold and the potatoes had absolutely no flavor or taste.
We have been to JD’s several times but not recently. We liked the music and the food in the past, but now, even with great music, we won’t be back.
need more staff wait time very slow. music was wonderful. duck portion small,
A little dark when you walk in but your eyes adjust quickly the food was awesome, everything from the service to the martinis were great would recommend it to anyone who wants a great meal at a fair price and some good music that you could even have a conversation without yelling.
We love to dine at JD's Bistro and Grille! The ambiance and the music is really special... it has the feeling of a dance/supper club from years ago. The food and service are very good, and t's a great place for a romantic dinner. Would highly recommend it to anyone!
Good supper club
Surprised by only a few patrons
We enjoyed our evening so much. We like to plan our outings on Friday night when Danny and his Jazz team are available to play. The music, wine, food, entainment and friends that we dined with, made such an enjoyable evening in our local community. Nice we are so close to good food and music opportunities. Well done and pleased with J.D.'s.
My second time here and the food, service and the great jazz were great both times! A hidden gem in Port Charlotte!
Great music, great welcome and excellent food at a fair price
Tony Bofa and his band are the best
Outstanding evening with great food, outstanding service and fantastic band. Portions were ample, cooked to perfection and priced well for what you received. Tony Boffa Quartet made the evening. I am a retired Restaurant Owner and know when a place is the real deal.
The ambiance was good and our waitress excellent. On the other hand, the food was bad. My wife's escargot appetizer tasted like it was out of a can. Her lobster tail was very difficult to remove from the shell which means it was not cooked properly. My caesar salad was smothered with anchovies with few croutons so that was its only taste . I asked for very rare rack of lamb and got medium well , hard to cut chops. In summary, we paid very close to $150.00 for very poor prepared and tasting food.
At 8PM on a Tuesday the place was deserted with only one other table occupied. After eating the food, I can understand why.
Always a great time, great music Food never disappoints.
Food was excellent. Music was a bit loud to be able to hear table mates well. You need a lot of time because service was very slow. We were not in hurry so it was ok but we all did remark on length of time it took to order and then get the food and drinks.
We had a lovely evening at JD's. Lovely live music and food is always prepared with attention to detail. Service was a little slower than my other visits, so if you are in a rush just let your server know. This restaurant offers a great atmosphere to relax and enjoy the evening...
What an amazing place!! I’m a professional musician from NYC, and JD’s is a NYC level entertainment venue!1 Tony Boffa was amazing and he had guest musicians who were great!!! I love going there when I visit Port Charlotte FL!!
The food was very good and cooked to perfection. The waitress did forget both my appetizer and dessert however and I was shocked because there were not many tables. The band was great except it was very loud and we could not even have a conversation!
A lovely dinner with live music. Food and music were both great. The jazz trio filled the room with music but not too loud that you couldn’t have a conversation too. We will be back.
We used to love going to JDs for the food and the music...not so much anymore....food quality has greatly gone downhill and they didn't fight to keep Kitt Moran. Really, truly a big shame. It used to be fabulous!
The food is always excellent. The jazz band is fabulous. Wonderful place for special occasions!
Our first time here. I took my wife for Mother’s Day. The food was excellent, the staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. The life music was light and peaceful. An overall great experience.
We chose to eat at JD's to celebrate our 33rd wedding anniversary. We loved the music on that Friday evening. We weren't right up near the musicians, so we could enjoy the music, yet still have a comfortable conversation. We both had the filet mignon, and were both pleased at how delicious the whole meal was. Tiffany, our waitress, was attentive and great at making us feel valued. They gave us the fantastic chocolate cake as a gift for our anniversary as well, which we didn't expect since this was our first visit and we didn't notify them in advance. I was glad I made a reservation here early enough.
We have been to JD's a number of times now and had a great dining experience every time. This time was good with the exception that we had to request moving us to another table since since water was dripping on a place setting from the AC outlet. Other than that the dinner was excellent and the music was very good! We enjoyed the evening. The meal is pretty pricey but for the occasional special event well worth going!
We had a Very enjoyable evening. The food ,service And music was terrific. We will be back. Thanks for asking.
We had never eaten at JD's before. The meal was very good. It is a bit pricey, but with the entertainment well worth it. We happened to be there when Danny Sinoff and his band was playing. Very nice and relaxing.
Music was fantastic, atmosphere was just right, upscale but not overly fancy. Chef Kellen prepared beautiful delicious dishes! The rack of lamb was amazing! We will be back.
Everything about J D 's was excellent. A wonderful experience in dining
Love this place! Excellent food and music, perfect for date night!
A pleasant relaxing atmosphere. Great quality food, exceptional service coupled with easy listening music and friendly musicians makes for a wonderful night out
It was a great evening very good food and service but the air conditioning was too cold so would not want to go back
Even with a jacket and a shawl on extreme cold My husband is cold and takes meds. I’m always warm and don’t need a jacket and was too cold to be comfortable
Very delicious food always a relaxing atmosphere and the entertainment was delightful!
A great evening. Food was very good as was the service. The quartet was perfectly suited for dinner entertainment.
