Haven't visited in a few years so we Decided it was worth the visit once more. Since it was first date we both attended some years ago decided it would be worth attending to close out the year. Service was bit spotty but the ambience and general atmosphere more than made up for the service. Sounds as though everyone enjoyed... More

Friendly service, delicious food, warm atmosphere, and great music. A little bit of a trip from downtown, but we'll worth it!

My wife and I attended the recent John Scofield concert to celebrate my birthday. Since our tickets were general admission we arrived early in order to have a good choice of table options. We were able to garner a table on one of the side risers which gave us a great view of the stage. The menu is varied from... More

Saw Rick Braun perform and it was great! The food, drinks and service was exceptional. The venue is small and probably not a bad seat in the house. White tablecloths, candlelight, romantic dinner and entertainment. A fantastic night!

Outstanding 13 piece jazz band and female vocalist. Menu had quite a variety of options from soups, salads, appetizers, to main dishes including fish & vegetarian. Dance floor available and we watched a couple who were quite talented. A delightful evening & we will be returning.

Went to the Jazz Kitchen for Chowdown Midtown. We were treated to some good jazz and some above average food. We had the Caesar and Mixed Greens salads. Both were above average salads and the dijon vinegrette dressing on the mixed greens was tasty with a slight dijon kick. Excellent. For the main course we had the walnut crusted salmon... More

We had tickets to see Bonerama at 9:30 at the Jazz Kitchen. We were a little early for seating for the late show, so we had a drink on the patio. Shortly thereafter we were seated inside for the show, the service was outstanding. We ordered dinner expecting it to be pub type food, but were surprised to find that... More

I went to listen jazz here with my brother-in-law and permanently in company of Martin, the main character of my novel, who is always saying that he likes jazz, pretty people, Jewish cooking, and good beer. Late afternoon in this bar he had almost all of his dreams fulfilled. He especially loved jazz, sun, good beer and chatting with some... More

We all were from out of town and we asked another family member to find a place in Indy where we could have open bar and food .
