Incredible experience! Everything from the jazz music to the food... I can't get over it... All exceptional. Staff was great too! Definitely my new favorite night spot in Denver.

Okay. It has been awhile since we were on a date. And my wife let me surprise her. We hadn't done something like this for long time (kids, work..life get in the way). Thursday is probably a bit more low key, but the music was good. Food was good. We had a table right by the stage. I wish we could have sat next to each other and not across the table. Conversation would have flowed better. Next time, I will make sure I have the option to sit closer, but it was still fun.

We totally enjoyed our dinner and music at Nocturne. We had some oysters, the dinner special "BarrabundI" and the Oax Tail Moroccan style. For dessert we had their Almond cake which was delicious.the service was outstanding and the music was excellent.

Made reservations for party of 9 for birthday celebration. Staff was friendly, attentive. Food was great, gluten free and vegetarian options. Great drink selection. Excellent jazz. Talking is allowed during the performance (different from other jazz clubs), which was nice for our group, but may be a bit distracting for those who come specifically for the show. Music was loud enough, so talking didn’t seem to interrupt or impact attention to musicians. Definitely coming back.

Our evening at Noturne was extremely enjoyable. For a birthday date it was the perfect place. We appreciated that it is encouraged to get dress up a little and no young children. It's a wonderfully sophisticated adult spot for some great food and live jazz. The only down side was that the bar seating didn't allow for more than one large plate at a time so we had to graze throughout the evening. Don't come hungry if you are seated at the bar. Will definitely return!

We thought there was going to be a Billie Holiday singer, which is why we went. There was another band. A bit pricey, but I guess it is a date place. I prefer more improvisational jazz, so I would only come back for a special line up of music.

My husband I checked out Nocturne for the first time this past Friday night and we will definitely be back! Who doesn't love a jazz club where you feel like you stepped back in time to a 1920's art deco club?! The service was absolutely fantastic and the ambiance could not have been better. Part of me wants to keep this place a secret so we won't have trouble getting reservations! But just had to share because I do want people to experience this place for themselves!

An instant favorite and perfect place to go on a impressive date or bring friends or family from out of town. A $15 cover charge per person when there's live music means they pay musicians well too!

Well you do go for the music and the jazz is great. The wine list is very good and reasonable. We have had excellent wines at fair prices. The food is better than any jazz club I have ever been to and is quite inventive with a trend towards the exotic. It is always quite enjoyable. The cocktails are also very special.

I was visiting my son in Boulder and we wanted to hear live jazz in Denver. A combination of the food, extremely good, and friendly service coupled with truly wonderful music from "Democracy" Quintet made our evening memorable! David

This place is wonderful and very classically designed. The atmosphere is very intimate and stylish. It is a little pricey, but perfect for date nights and great for checking out the local jazz scene. I did not eat but just ordered drinks, but I gave 4 stars for the appearance of our neighbors food, they all seemed to be really enjoying it.

Wanted to take my youngest son on the eve of his 21st for a nice dinner and some great jazz. We were not disappointed. From the accommodation of our son not being 21 on weekend (with parents so no drinking) to the food and wine recommendations we had a fantastic time. We will be back again and again

I really enjoyed my time at Nocturne, but I thought some of the entree food was not nearly as good as the music. Appetizers were delicious and the Muffaletta sliders that my friends got were amazing. Unfortunately, the Duck special and gnocchi were just okay. I certainly wouldn't send them back, but I wouldn't order either again. Thanks for a great birthday dinner and the music was excellent.

Great night. Found parking close by, hostess and all wait staff were very friendly. This was our first time at Nocturne, and I was impressed. We came for the music (Saxophonist Brian Horton) and we were not disappointed. Every table had a great view of the stage; Nocturne is a relatively small, intimate place. Great selection of beers, wines, and cocktails. We ate several delicious small plates. Server was attentive but never obtrusive. Overall the experience was just what we were looking for—- warm vibe, cool jazz, great food. Sax man Brian even took the time to chat us up between his sets. Can’t wait to come back.

Been to many great jazz bars around he country and Nocturne was the BEST. The music was on par with any of the jazz you’d find in New Orleans, the food was incredible, wait staff friendly and attentive, and just a great all-around experience from start to finish. The best date night spot we’ve seen anywhere. You’ll need to make a reservation well in advance but don’t miss this gem!
