We had fun and enjoyed the band. This was our first experience at Nocturne. We consisted of two couples who enjoy music. We were seated upstairs because of the size of our party. After listening to the music downstairs I will ask to be seated there on our next visit.

Nocturne has pretty good food. The cauliflower I had was one of the best cauliflower dishes I’ve ever eaten. Every other dish we ordered was slightly above average. There was an 18 dollar PER PERSON fee right when you walk in the door. Perhaps it’s cheaper some nights, but this seemed ridiculous to me, and if I hadn’t made a reservation I would have said no and left.
And then to top it off, the drinks were too sweet and most of the food was just okay.
I definitely won’t be back, but it was an experience.

Except for the audience members who behaved with disrespectful hysterical laughter during exquisitely beautiful and quiet parts of the music, the experience at Nocturne was perfect. I love jazz, I love great food, the staff member are fun, kind, respectful of the music, and one of them even recognizes customers she has served in the past... that's sweet in a big city!

Nice venue with a great jazz lineup -- clearly one of the best three jazz venues in town, period. The food was done well, but the service a tad slow for a slow night. OpenTable's reservation system left a lot to be desired, as it appeared that there were no tables available (just the bar) for a second-set reservation, yet when I arrived, half of the tables were empty. Perhaps the first set was full, but the system should account for a certain degree of turnover between sets.

This place was great, a perfect date night. I did not have high expectations for the food, thinking it was primarily a music venue - but the food was great! We had the burrata, ceviche, shared the cavatelli, and had a nice bottle of wine. The service was excellent and made everything work with the small cocktail table we chose to sit at. The music was a fun change from your typical night dining out.

Absolutely lovely evening. Food was definitely on the avant guarde side, but very good. Drink were excellent and not at all watered down. Music was good, though perhaps a bit on the louder side - if you're looking for an evening out with nice background music, this may not be quite the place, but if you're looking for an evening out to enjoy music with good food and great drinks, this is an excellent location.

Nocturne was incredible! It was our first time going and it was my husband’s birthday so I was hoping it would be special and it was! It’s such a hospitable place, the music was amazing, the waitress was so personable, and they offered us a complimentary glass of wine for his birthday and dessert. Will DEFINITELY be going back. They made our experience very memorable and special. Well worth the money! Would recommend to all who love jazz and good people.

Nocturne is an intimate Jazz club with good food. The portions aren't great especially the shared plates which are too small to really share. The noise level is loud as there is a band playing, but the music was great. It was a fun evening overall.

Cocktails: Sunglasses at night gin drink was good, and the Good Question scotch drink was excellent. Some of the seats have a bad / obstructed view of the live band. Parking in that area is impossible on the weekend.

This place was amazing for Jazz! The band was fantastic and the atmosphere was great.

I would improve on the Website and more forthcoming about the planned events for that night. Reserving online and being from out of town, I had no way of knowing it was going to cost $36 for just seeing the band alone and had no reference of timing of when the band would play since they do sets and take breaks, etc. The Website was poor and did not provide the information from what I could easily find.

I also wish there was room for some form of dancing too cause it's jazz and people should be moving! But everyone was crammed in there, so don't expect any personal space.

So overall, over-priced and lack of information would prevent me from returning if I was a local. But check out if you have the money and want to see some Jazz in a specific Jazz environment!

I picked a special restaurant for a special occasion and it did not disappoint! My elderly father was visiting and they accommodated our request for seating that would be best for his hearing disability. We began with a complementary champagne toast and the waitress even got a little sparkling lemon drink for my boyfriend who is sober. My dad is very particular about his rum and the server and the bartender were happy to help him find just the right one. Everyone in our party agreed the cheese plate was one of the best cheese plates of all time. Seriously, top 10 of my life. The homemade crackers are heavenly. I had the mussels for my main and they were also probably top 10 mussels for texture, size, and flavor. Dessert was gorgeous. Honestly, when you have an older parent you can't help but wonder if each visit might be the last time you see them. It was special to share this jazz dinner with my dad who was the one to give me my love for jazz! I will never, ever, ever forget this meal. If you are looking to make a memory I HIGHLY recommend Nocturne.
