Date night with the wife. Great band the night I went. The decor and layout is more like a NY or DC jazz club - the denver crowd just didn't seem to fit. Nice cocktail selection. Didn't have dinner - menu seems a little to eclectic for my taste. Decent desserts. Was seated at the cocktail tables - very comfortable.

From the moment you enter the front door you are in a different world; the ambiance is 1920's-1930's speakeasy style, exposed brick with art-deco accents. The servers are attentive, the food creative and delicious. Craft cocktails abound, but also an excellent wine list and many beers to choose from. Once the music starts you are in jazz/blues heaven. We have been to Nocturne multiple times and have always enjoyed the talented musicians. Highly recommend!

This place is great! Really makes you feel that you're in a 40s/50s jazz club. The staff was very attentive and checked in on us frequently. The music was also great. We ordered the burrata, the cauliflower, and the muscles. All were delicious.

If you love to listen to Jazz, then this is a pretty good spot. We came over fri evening and the place was not jam packed thankfully.
The music was great, only complaint would be that I had made early reservation and still was seated at the table near the restroom. Once another table was vacant, we requested to move and were obliged. Overall a good spot so spend a quaint evening.

Concern that certain disagreeable food was taken back but no consolation in cost or reparation was offered. Not sure our distaste reached the manager and disappointed no action was taken to make the correction. Certain patrons were louder than expected but music was great and had a lot of energy especially the drummer.

My boyfriend and I attended a jazz show for a fun date night. I think we were styled with the best seats in the house! The band was awesome as was the service, ambiance and food. Definitely pricey, but we will eagerly return for a special night, or more regularly and just stick to the music and a drink.

Nocturne is, or at least, has been, a great place to hear excellent local and national jazz musicians. They also feature very good food and a nice drink selection. There are endless places in downtown Denver that offer the latter. Unfortunately, Nocturne is becoming just another bar where people come in to drink and talk/shout over the music to the point that I feel sorry for the folks on stage and cannot really listen. Last time I was there the staff and owner apologized more than once for the noise level at the bar, but that doesn't really solve the problem.

The fries were way over seasoned but the rest of the food was good. The service was great. The price was way high though. I think the charge for the musician should be less.

This is a great venue, but Second time in the restaurant, I was fully disappointed. My wife, daughter and i had dinner last year and returned this Wednesday to celebrate my wife’s birthday. The music was average, and so was the food. The wine we picked was definitely below expectations. The service seemed hectic. I had to get the check corrected as they charged me the cover fee that I had already paid online. They must put their act together.

The service was outstanding. Food very good and portions fair for the price. The trio we saw was very good but they could have lowered the volume a bit. Probably difficult to do when you have a drum set in the group.

The Annie Booth jazz Trio covered some Beatles songs the night I was there. For 'Oh, Darling', one of the Nocturne staff with an amazing voice came on stage to do the vocals, and another staff member played the sax for another song (which I can't now remember). Very entertaining evening for the $10 cover charge.
