The food was delicious and the staff helpful.
These are extra characters to meet the minimum. I'm not in school anymore so don't make me have a minimum damn word count for my essay. That really grinds my gears.
But yeah it was good

Hearing the Rebecca Kilgore Trio was by far the best experience of the evening. That choice was a very good one and those who follow her will have your place brimming with happy customers.

We went for the jazz and good stout on tap. Both great. We got to sit within a couple of feet of the saxophonist and pianist. Service was as prompt as it could have been and very friendly. We expect the 4th Saturday of the month at 1905 to become a fixture in our lives -- an island of sanity in a world of madness.

One of my favorite places to visit with friends! Food, drinks, and music always killer! The staff is friendly and attentive. The patio was perfect for a lovely late-summer evening, with cool ambiance. The tables didn't too feel crowded even though it was busy. I love this place!

Such a fun evening last night getting to hear Jimmie Herrod sing jazz standards while enjoying delicious food and drinks. I would definitely recommend going here for a fun and also very affordably priced night out. The service was great as well. Would highly recommend.

Pizza was excellent and also the service. We made reservations indoors but they were requesting vaccination cards plus a $15 cover charge per person. That was not listed on their website so we ended up sitting outside.

Excellent experience, like no other in PDX from what I can tell. The service is phenomenal my server Ryan was just on his A game. The pizza was probably the best I've had yet since moving to Oregon. The performance/entertainment was exactly what you expect and the prices were fair. They also have a great setup outside and protect customers but requiring showing proof of vaccination which is very much appreciative. Overall great time and will be back. thanks everyone

The 1905 is a great spot to take friends or loved ones to have good food and listen to great music. Their bartender does an amazing job as does the wait staff. Definitely intend to go back. We had their pizza and were not dissappointed. I strongly suggest you make a reservation to get a table!

I would have rated everything much higher had my food experience been much better. I mean I order a pizza with pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, and roasted red peppers and what I received was a cheese-less pizza with pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, and green bell peppers. I sent the pizza back and waited for my new pizza to arrive. What I got was a pizza with cheese, sausage, mushrooms, and roasted red peppers, but no sauce and no pepperoni. Kinda felt like I was being punked at this point, but I decided not to worry about it and just eat it because I wasn’t going to complain again and wait for a third, and hopefully correct, pizza to come out. At least my pizza was comped though. The music and atmosphere was great though!

The only problems were that we were in a corner and the people behind us talked loudly and care little about the music and how it interfered with listening to a concert .

Pizza’s were outstanding. Food service was excellent. Drinks service was slow for the second drink. For a glass of wine and a beer, it took almost 15 minutes. Music was fairly good.

Visited the 1905 for the first time for dinner and a show. Originally wanted a later time so we emailed the restaurant and had a little back and forth with them. Super accommodating. Not too full when we went on a Tuesday at 6pm. Food (pizza) was delicious. We also ordered the Mac and cheese and the Brussels sprouts. Would order everything again except maybe the Mac and cheese (was nothing too special). The show was great. We could hear really well and got front row seats despite being outside in the patio. Drinks were nice as well and service was outstanding. Try it if you get the chance! They also do take out for their delicious pizzas :P yum.
