Fun casual pizza place with good cocktails, beer and wine. The jazz show was incredible! Great vibe, extremely talented, and it was an intimate setting. We can't wait to see more shows here.

Outstanding place to hear jazz and eat pizza. And other things. Drinks are well made. Service is fantastic. Great vibe. Hope they can bring more big time acts like Tain Watts and Orrin Evans. Filling a needed gap since the end of Jimmy Maks.

One problem. They allow people to stand in front of reserved tables blocking our view. If you’re going to allow SRO, make sure they’re not blocking the view and sound.

This is a gem. If you like jazz and you like food and you aren't an uptight jerk, you'll be as happy as a clam.

We waited 30 minutes to be greeted by our waitress even with having a reservation. It took another 20 minutes to get our drinks and food order and had to ask another server to check on our drinks. She came out another 20 minutes later to let us know my dish was no longer available and never once apologized for the delay in service or food delivery.

1905 is a unique a very valuable place in Portland. No other club or restaurant operating in Portland now is as committed to providing a performance venue for local jazz musicians. But it's not just a good place for jazz, but an overall appealing space that offers good food and drinks and the opportunity for young folks under 18 to hear jazz performed at a high level. And 1905's commitment to the local jazz scene seems to be growing, with two separate performances and seatings each night, which of course involve separate cover charges for the different bands. This nightly turnover of bands and seating arrangements no doubt presents some complicated logistical and scheduling challenges for management and staff, but on my most recent visit there, everything seemed to operate very smoothly. I'm very impressed with 1905. I hope the place continues to thrive. It deserves the public's patronage and support.

This place has the feel of a jazz club without the pretense. The music was top shelf, the pizza was perfect and the employees as helpful and friendly as could be. A lot of thoughtful planning and organization has gone into making the 1905 a new highlight of my hometown.

Great place. I put in my reservation the night before pretty late and they didn’t get it set up the next day. Not sure how it all works on open table but maybe recheck everything in the morning to make sure nobody reserved late the day before. I will return

I love The 1905! Awesome food - great pizza choices, salads are delish, and the drinks are top notch. There is live music every night of the week and the cover is generally $5 or $10. So affordable, and some of the best music in the city! The staff is super friendly and the patio is beautiful. I've been here for brunch too, and the food did not disappoint! This is my go-to place for a quick bite (happy hour deals are terrific), and especially, I come here for the pizza and the jazz.

I brought out of town guests to see what the real Portland is about. Portland is all about great food, fun community, and live music and the 1905 is the heart of these elements which make Portland, Oregon the place to visit and the 1905 is the place to dine, drink, and enjoy each other with great musical talent.

We LOVED our experience at the 1905! It was a busy evening, which made service a little slower, so don't come in a hurry - sit and ENJOY the atmosphere. The music was fantastic - we saw Farnell Newton and his crew - and the pizza was delicious. We would go back in a heartbeat.

I just loved this place. Great for our date night with some rad music. The gluten-free truffle pizza was the best pizza I have had in a very long time and the Sangiovese I must look up to have again. Pleasant staff and overall vibe. Thank you for a lovely evening!

1st time guests. They had a live jazz band, (excellent), good seating inside or nice outdoor options too, (bonus), food was excellent and good value for the money, (especially happy hour; 4-6). Only issue was our primary waitress faded out and we had to flag 2 different ones over for service. All were pleasant but assignments seemed chaotic. Definitely would recommend and we’ll visit again!

Wonderful pizza and craft beer on tap, the show was excellent. Wasn't clear from 1905 website that both bands would share both sets, but since we could only stay for one set, it was an extra bonus to be able to see both bands!

I actually made a reservation, but for the DAY BEFORE my wife and I arrived, so, technically, I did not have a reservation. Aaron recognized my mistake, and seated my wife and I anyway. He and his staff made us feel at home. The service here is outstanding, the drinks are great, and the jazz entertainment that evening was wonderful!

Reasonable prices and good portions so you won’t leave hungry.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

Don’t miss the Sunday brunch with jazz. It’s been a great Father’s Day brunch. The roll up door was open. Choose inside or out. So casual and enjoyable. Today it was Rebecca Kilgore with Randy Porter and John Moak. Great trio!

The 1905 is one of my favorite places to listen to great local jazz artists while enjoying the chill vibe of the club's atmosphere itself. Fantastic service, great drinks and the Oregon Truffle pizza... a great way to unwind after a busy week.
