Beautiful experience. The live jazz music is something everyone should experience at least once in their life-time. My one small adjustment/advice would be this- go out to dinner somewhere else and then relax the night away at Nocturne. Nocturne seems well suited for music and a whiskey-type of outing. My date and I found the food to contain too many spices in one dish and too bland in the other (although they ended up complementary each other quite well when we shared!).

Such a fun venue! The music was wondering, the food was delicious, and the ambiance was everything you’d want in a jazz club. Cocktails and service were also top notch!

I appreciate the intimate setting of the Nocturne and the quality of music at this establishment. I was disappointed when we were asked to leave our table for another reservation as the website didn't clarify that a reservation was for a certain window of time nor did it suggest to make 2 reservations should we want to stay for the entire set. If not for that, my rating would have been higher.

Tables in our section were small to the point of inconvenience, we had to use the table next to us. I should have asked to be moved to a four-top. Otherwise great, solid music and the food was excellent. Ambiance is the best part!

We had an amazing meal and enjoyed the music of André Mali quartet. The setting is perfect for jazz, but as a serious listener I was frustrated with the audience noise level. I felt it was highly disrespectful of the artists. I know you have to strike a balance between allowing folks to have social time and the needs of artists to hear each other, but the culture in the room that night seemed to devalue the musicians.

I can't remember the name of my server, but she provided some of the best service I've ever had at a restaurant. I can't recommend this place enough. The food and ambiance are unmatched in the Denver Metro. I could not have selected a better place to celebrate an anniversary. I do wish their scotch selection was a little better, but still... 10/10

Music was great as always. Food was a little disappointing this time (hard to do justice to 1/2" rib-eye). Cannot beat the half-price wines on Wednesdays.

I love nocturne! This visit will be my second in the books. Both times were fantastic. What a neat spot. Nocturne has a great environment for all occasions. First dates, family events, friend gatherings, date night! The music alone is phenomenal, however, the ambiance, food and service certainly compliment it beautifully. Formal and gorgeous, yet relaxing and inviting. Looking for something new to experience? Nocturne should be the destination for your next outing! :)

Absolutely loved Nocturne. It’s a jazz supper club, so musicians are playing/performing while regular dinner service is going on and it’s pretty fun. Service was really, really great. Food was wonderful but a little pricy. Artist fees are automatically added on your food/drink bill, which is brilliant.

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!

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.
