I went there Sunday, trying to find a local business who could provide a good steak. The jazz was awesome... I only recognized Pete Moss on sax, but the other 3 were all top notch. The steak was a Denny's steak. If you are a new business, and charging $26 for a "rib-eye" steak, it better be a decent steak. It was THIN on one side (less than 1/2", so it was WELL done), and about 5/8" thick on the other side, so medium rare. It tasted horrible, like it was bad. I truly expected to wake up vomiting in the night, but fortunately it just tasted bad. The gravy tasted and felt like canned gravy. The vegetables tasted like frozen. The $6 house cabernet savignon tasted like dishwater. Everything was cheap cheap cheap in a classy place. I felt TOTALLY ripped off, and plan to talk to the manager today. In my opinion, stick with a smaller menu, do it right, charge appropriately. Don't try to lowball and use lousy ingredients to make that lowball price.

This is where i ALWAYS want to be on Thursday night in Portland--there may be as many as seven or eight top musicians join in for part or all of the evening, providing some of the best jazz you'll hear. The staff here is also very friendly and accommodating--they will remember you the second time you go. I haven't tried but a few things on the menu yet because I keep getting the excellent New Orleans gumbo over and over! The Shrimp ?touffe is also delicious, not to mention a nice burger. But the food is secondary to the music for me, and I wish the Jazz Kitchen every success and thank them for providing this new venue for good jazz!

I was not happy to see the gelato shop go, but having this quality of live jazz in the neighborhood is a real treat. Very enjoyable atmosphere with good selections of beer and wine.

Brand new Jazz venue on NE Fremont. S.U. and I watched the Andre St. James Trio play a nice set while having a beer and glass of wine.

Located in the former gelato joint in the Fremont Commons building, the newly remodeled space has a nice feel for a jazz club. The food looked pretty basic, American with an etoufe and jambalaya included as tip to New Orleans. They've been open for less than two weeks so, obviously they have a few kinks to work out (let's start at A-OK) but it does look promising.
