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.

Nocturne is a gem in Denver. Our visit was superb from the moment we walked in and were greeted by the hostess. We had planned to stop by for drinks and to catch the first set and ended up staying the entire night for dinner. The staff was excellent, friendly and accommodating. Food was fantastic. We are already looking forward to our next visit.

We did the tasting menu, and the presentation and food were exceptional. We had the early seating, and our one comment is that we wish we’d dined later because the venue was too bright until the sun went down.

I took my girlfriend to Nocturne for her birthday dinner and we both had a great experience. As we were seated they immediately mentioned my girlfriend’s birthday and offered us some champagne on the house, great start. We chatted a bit and peeked at the menu before ordering the burrata appetizer, which was delicious. The service was excellent, some of the best I’ve had the honor to experience. Every drink and every dish was explained in great detail, and we very much felt like we were being catered to. I went with the 5 course tasting menu where the dishes accompanied the songs the band was playing. We decided to share everything and neither of us left hungry. I could go on and on but top to bottom everything was great and we had an amazing night. We’ll be back.

Wow, loved this place. Perfect spot for our Anniversary that we were celebrating. Great vibe, great live music, and the service was top notch. I noted it was our anniversary on open table and it seems like every person we ran into, including one of the musicians, wished us a happy anniversary without us letting them know that was why were there.

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.
