I’ve been to this location quite a bit with friends. Took my close friend from Texas here on a date and she and I loved the ambiance. The drinks in my opinion are a little overpriced and they only sell certain wines by the bottle which I think personally is not the most effective with sales to customer. Overall, good experience.

The service is friendly, the drinks were good. The acoustics and lighting are great. I like the seating arrangements, no matter where you sit there is an unobstructed view of the stage.

We went after dinner for the jazz. My husband had a cheese dish and two martinis. I was planning on coffee and dessert but forgot. The wait staff made us feel like they were totally available yet not pushy about ordering more. I loved it and will go back. It's sometimes difficult to find a bar that a non-drinker can enjoy. This one is great. My musician husband loved the band.

The hostess was delightful.
We were celebrating my Sons graduation from DU with his Masters in Business Science Data Analytics
Special evening with my sons Lovely girlfriend.
The waitress was attentive and when a meal came with mussels that looked very SAD, she took it off the bill.
As she should have!!! Class Act!!!

The music was superb. True , talented schooled musicians.

The young adults were tired. They left We wanted to stay and sat across a couple who we got to know!!! Very Fun!!!

Have been several times to Nocturne now and we have enjoyed the experience each times.
We have brought friends to meet there who have in turn brought their friends. Each time i am in Denver i will come for the jazz, the food, the drinks and the vibe.

Nocturne consistently exceeds expectations and is my favorite place to celebrate with friends, host a business dinner, or end a date with my SO! Scott’s the best wine curator in the state!

Cocktails were crazy good and jazz was grooving even for a weekday. Give it a visit for a quick night out or make a reservation for a noteworthy set. You won't be disappointed.

We absolutely ADORE Nocturne! The music is always outstanding (if you're a jazz fan, of course.) But in addition to the hot tunes, what always amazes us is the level of service and the incredible food and drink menu. My wife and I love nice dinners and absolutely count Nocturne as one of the top 5 meals we have ever had. So to combine AMAZING food, fantastic atmosphere, and sizzlin' tunes and you have the PERFECT night out!

Nocturne is one of our favorite venues for anniversaries and other special occasion dates. The music is always fantastic, the food spectacular, and the wait staff friendly and accommodating. We plan to continue patronizing this excellent establishment for years to come!

This is the kind of establishment that is taking Denver food and entertainment to the next level. Not only did my partner and I receive wonderful service and excellent food and beverages, but I love that we were able to support excellent musicians and help pay them fairly. This is not your typical overdone "hip" joint--Nocture is sincerely a great place to have a fun and/or romantic night on the town.

Came to Nocturne to celebrate my bf’s birthday. Found it via Google. The music and ambiance is awesome. I ordered the crab and pea cavatelli, it was delicious! He asked for a medium-well filet and got medium-rare, asked for it to be cooked a little longer and got medium. Moral of the story, if you’re particular about your steak skip it here. Our server was awesome and brought out a little treat with a candle, very sweet.

It was my sisters birthday, and we were looking for a jazz spot. I went online and read the reviews to determine where to go. Nocturne was listed as a great spot to listen to jazz. We really enjoyed ourselves, and we will definitely come back again when we’re in town!

Went for the music and was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of food and service. Room is very well designed so you do not feel like you are in a hall or repurposed restaurant. Nicely done

Nocturne needs to decide if it is a listening room or an overpriced pretentious bar. When I spend $15 ( per set, then you are expected to pay another 15 for each 1 1/2 hour set) I don't expect the place to be filled with people that are shouting and scream laughing through the whole set. The menu was pricey and pretentious as well. I was warned not to eat the food from a few sources so I can't comment on it. The musicians were exceptional ( from what I could tell over the din) and the wait staff was wonderful. In other listening rooms or jazz clubs you pay to listen and you can actually hear the band OR you have a drink minimum, but not both. And I know you pay the musicians the same amount of money each time regardless of the crowd, so stating the $15 goes directly to the musicians is misleading. I love music, and don't love people who like to be SEEN at jazz bars, but can't shut up long enough to actually listen to the music. I won't be back.

Food was delicious. Jazz was amazing. We always like it here. Just wish they would do more seatings, or make the bar top tables a but larger. Impossible to order more than a small plate and two drinks, and fit it all on the tiny table.
