Good experience. Pacing of the meal was a bit rough. Entrees came just minutes after the appetizers arrived, and had to ask for place settings multiple times. That said, very friendly service and excellent food!

Wanted to have a nice dinner for my son‘s sixth birthday along with our 13 and nine-year-olds have been here in the past over the years whenever visiting Disneyland for the weekend. Absolutely awful service, the server had no concept of the drink menu I asked for not sweet recommendation ended up with the sweetest cocktail on the menu, calamari appetizer was cold and breading was falling off to the point where it was left behind on the plate had to send that back. Rest of the food took forever. The New York steak ordered but my older children was slathered in a disgusting sauce and we were still able to taste that the meat was somehow overcooked and burnt. Food took forever I had to ask for them to bring my little one Pasta before ours because he was starving. Icing on the cake was the delayed birthday candle with a little dessert for which I asked when we first sat. My son was hysterical and then it finally came after my husband asked waiter for it. And we really went out with a bang by the waiter spilling water all over my husband whose pants were drenched and as was half of the entire table. Not to mention in the beginning it took us nearly 30 minutes to get any water. Absolute worst experience will never be back here the food standard has gone down tremendously as has the service and the ridiculous attitude of the entire staff. I would have spoken to the manager but I was honestly not in the mood given my little one was already exhausted as were we from this awful experience and we couldn’t wait to leave.

My husband and I were served by Amber. She was very friendly and professional. We enjoyed having her as a server. Kirk Andre is an outstanding performer! He played the perfect songs for that Valentine's evening.

We enjoyed our anniversary at the Jazz Kitchen. I ordered BBQ shrimp and grits and my hubby ordered fried chicken pot pie. There was only one small piece of Chicken in the pot pie. We let the waitress know and they bought us another one so he took that home. They knew it was our anniversary so they brought us Champaign and beignet's. The service was good. We sat on the patio and we're able to people watch. We even ran into some friend who were walking by. I would definitely go again. They made it right with the food situation.

Food is decent but not the best. However, the beignets and cocktails were amazing! If you are just looking for a spot to have a drink and get beignets, this is a good place for that. Would maybe try it again but the taste/quality of the food isn't really worth the price you pay.

We have eaten here over 20 times and last night's meal was disappointing. My boyfruend always orders the pasta jambalaya. This dish had no flavor at all and we had ordered it extra spicy. We sent it back to fix it the 1st time, when they returned with it it was the same. So disappointing we sent it back and requested this be removed from our bill. Meanwhile I'm the only one eating because my boyfriend was so disappointed he didn't want anything else.

I loved the atmosphere; the candle lit tables and live music were great for a date night. We enjoyed great food and wine and even though we had our kids with us we felt welcomed. It felt like a little get away.

The food was excellent, especially the steak and the double chocolate bread pudding. The service was fast, friendly, and spot on. Live jazz music starting at 6 on Sunday was nice. I recommend asking for a table away from the stage if you want to talk.

The food was delicious, came out quickly, but the portion was small for the price, but your are paying for the whole experience. Music was fun. Everything was great except for the energy level of the servers. When coming to a Disney resort establishment, there is a certain level of service expected. Especially if you are coming from a distance and investing in the experience for a special occasion. Our server was attentive, the host who sat us was polite, and the busboys did their job, but that was it. We could have been eating at a Denny’s. It just did not feel like the staff was happy. Sort of robotic and not personable. We noticed it at other tables too with the different servers. They just opened, so maybe we’re warming up. We may comeback for the music and beignets. It may be the youth, but I’m really hoping that the next staff who helps us understands the customers expectations for a Disney experience. Smiles, suggestions, and eye contact. Still had a nice time and will return.
