Je suis venue avec un bon groupon, l’accueil était bien mais le repas ne valait pas du tout le prix que j’aurai peut être payé si je n’avais pas eu le bon groupon. Le repas était salé pour l’entrée et le plat.
L’ambiance jazz était cool !

Le serveur Éric (origine chinois je crois ) a donné un service exemplaire.

Petite amélioration pourrait être apportée au plat principal a ce qui a trait à la portion.

La cuisse de poulet dans le combo était vraiment vraiment petite.

Merci

Il y a des frais supplémentaires obligatoires non-mentionnés. 10$ de droit d’entrée et 2$ cash de vestiaire obligatoire... si vous n’en avez pas, une machine ATM aux frais élevés vous fera regretter de ne pas en avoir sur vous.
Comptez 75$ par personne (soupe, plat principal, un petit verre de vin, dessert, expresso).
Si vous aimez le jazz, la soirée sera sublime!

Bonjour!
Vous avez un endroit exceptionnel, avec des musiciens exceptionnels, un excellent service, une ambiance aussi exceptionnelle. Malheureusement, la nourriture, elle, n'est vraiment pas exceptionnelle. Surtout pour le $ demandé. Nous ne pensons pas retourner pour y manger mais très certainement pour prendre un drink en y écoutant de la musique formidable.
Il y a tellement de jeunes cuisiniers qui attendant leur chance et qui sont remplis de talents et de créativité!!
Merci et au plaisir!

C'était bien, le groupe était bon, la serveuse voulait bien faire Mais le service était pas au top ( café servi bien avant le dessert, le brownie servi était caoutchouteux du coup pas consommé.)
L'endroit est joli et la musique fut bonne.
Le personnel était sympa mais le service était à désirer malgré cela.
Pour résumer L'endroit est bien mais cher pour ce que c'est.

The House of Jazz did not disappoint as far as ambiance and great entertainment . The server was very attentive. The only complaint I have is that by using Open Table, I was not able to request a booth. When we got there we were told we should have booked directly with the restaurant. We were, however , able to move later to a much better table when the intended customers did not show up- very kind of the restaurant staff!

When we came we were shown a page with specials for the night for $35. We asked the waitress(Evelyn) questions but she offered no real answeres. We thought it was a good value but we’re very disappointed. The salad was not the same size as the large salad which we believed we were getting instead of the waitress informing us that the salad was a small. The desert option was only a brownie which we were not told again by the waitress so when we chose the desert we were disappointed. The beef we were not told was beef stew. We were told roast and were disappointed again at the small portion and the amount of salt in the food. I ate both my meal and my husband as he was so upset but we didn’t want to make a big fuss in front of everyone.

Tried unsuccessfully to contact Open Table because restaurant WAS CLOSED at lunchtime. Message I wrote turned into an email format but no email address given for Open Table so couldn't send it. Have someone try this and fix the bug!
More important, how could you confirm reservations for a meal when restaurant CLOSED?
Oh can't send this without rating so giving one star.

Dans l'ensemble, c'était bien. Très bruyant par contre. Après lorsque le spectacle a commencé, c'était correct. La nourriture était bien. Sans plus pour moi. Ce que j'ai préféré c'est la performance. Le service n'était pas bon. Ce n'est pas que les serveuses étaient mauvaises mais le fait qu'elles étaient débordées. Peut etre en engager 2 de plus feraient l'affaire...

Let's be honest ...you come here for the music and atmosphere - not for the food. The food was okay only (lots of premade items so hard to ask for small changes like no sauce on the meat/food). That said, I had the escargots and I LOVED it (so much yummy cheese! Lol). Service is good /pleasant but can be quite slow (my sense is the servers sections /tables are too large/many). That said, the ambiance and music were fantastic so definitely recommended!!

Nous avons vomi toute la nuit sûrement à cause des moules séchées dans la jambalaya
Une dame vomissait dehors à notre sortie du restau et celle qui l’accompagnait avait des crampes au ventre et à l’estomac
