The service and ambiance were lovely. The food was somewhat pricey for the amount we received.
My friend had the vegetarian lasagna and it was quite small.
I had the green salad with chicken and there was very little chicken
My other friend had the turkey sandwich and was very happy with it

Overall we had a great time room for improvement with the reservation they ran 45 minutes past our reservation time and then our server was busy and couldn't take our order for about 30 minutes after we sat down my visit ended up being 4 hours and that's too long for me 2 and 1/2 is my limit

I thought there would be more “Cajun” choices of food because of the name.
Nice upscale atmosphere but loud like most open large rooms.
No jazz music playing - disappointing.
Food was pricey but delicious.
Had a waiter drop a dish of tarter sauce that got my boots and coat. They were very nice about the incident and gave us a free dessert and manager offered dry cleaning if needed.

Was excited to try this place after many rescheduled reservations. Menu had two decent sounding veggie options. We had tablets for menus. Kinda a turn off. Food was decent, not great. Saturday nights are busy, so it was bustling. Unfortunately, the high ceilings didnt dampen the noise. Overall cool looking place, somewhere I'd come for a drink but not dinner.

Very busy on the Friday night that we reserved for dinner.

Our coats were taken upon arrival. We were seated in what looked to be the best booth with a center view of the restaurant, but still had a private feel. Plenty of space to walk to the restrooms without having to bump into wait staff or patrons.

We had beer, scotch and a few others which was all well made.

Oysters were from Maine-They were not shucked correctly and lacked a preferred briney taste.

Food portions were small for the cost.

Overall service was excellent for our first time and hope it will be the same on our next visit.

The restaurant is beautiful, but it was quite loud. Also, my husband and I are pretty basic eaters, and although the appetizers were excellent (corn chowder and Brussel sprouts), the entrees were just okay with kind of a limited selection.

The food special was significantly over-priced and very heavily salted, to the point that all I could taste was the salt. Jazzboline also fails as a jazz venue, with the audience entirely disengaged from the music, nobody even applauding. I felt bad for the musicians and also for the excellent wait staff. Jazzboline is now on my list of places NOT to go in Buffalo.

Love the decor and service . We enjoy the seafood boil but think you should add a second lobster tail to the dish. Should be able to offer a second tail for a nominal up charge.

The place is beautiful. The staff is nice but a little slow at returning with drinks and extras. I ordered a chicken salad and I returned it and just told them to add the chicken and they threw a few pieces of freezing cold chicken on it so u didn’t fully enjoy it. Other than that it was nice.

My first (and last) visit to Jazzboline was with a group of friends. We had a reservation and were seated promptly. The space is beautiful. We immediately ordered an appetizer which arrived in a reasonable timeframe and was tasty. Sadly, this is where my compliments will end.

I will point out them at the restaurant was not packed, as we’d arrived about 30 minutes before brunch changed to dinner service. Three from our party ordered drinks: one cocktail, one glass of wine, and one glass of juice. The cocktail took approx 15 mins to arrive at our table. The wine about 17. The juice took about 20 minutes. We hadn't even ordered our meals yet, though a few members of our party ordered soup. Two of three arrived and it was not until they were finished that our waitress visited the table and was informed that the third person had not received her soup.

Our meals took another hour to arrive, during which time the waitress made no attempt to check in on us. We could see one of the meals sitting under the heat lamp in the kitchen for a long time. Once five of our six meals arrived, it became apparent that the last had been forgotten. We observed a conversation between the waitress and kitchen, which looked unpleasant, before our waitress returned to the table. Her apology was halfhearted and she spent most of the time complaining about what a crappy day she was having. She also mentioned that she couldn’t wait to leave. It was uncomfortable.

After the (mediocre) missing meal arrived, the waitress offered to “buy another glass of wine” for my friend. She declined, as we were now in the restaurant for over 2 hours and had appointments elsewhere. My friend requested her dish to be comped and the waitress complied. She also offered a round of complimentary desserts; we accepted provided they could be taken to-go.

Lastly, the restaurant manager came to the table to offer what I think was intended to be an apology but sounded more like a rambling excuse. Unimpressive.

Reservation was for 9 did not get seated until 9:20....the service was great the food was ok. We had the chorizo flatbread pizza, calamari, pork sliders and the warm olives. Pork sliders were the best, the sauce for the calamari and on the pizza was creamy which I usually don’t mind but it just didn’t go well with the dish! Would I go back again...maybe for just drinks.

Enjoyed the ribeye special, that was served perfectly per my request. I can honestly say that it was the best steak I've ever had; that includes Russell's Steaks and Chops. Our server, Jerry, was very informative, attentive and made you comfortable like an old friend. I have already recommended Jazzboline to friends and family and will continue to do so. We look forward to our next dining experience with you.

Wasn’t impressed, ordered lobster bisque, questioned if that what it was when it arrived. Was told yes just different style, when finished was told “actually it wasn’t bisque, it was a bean soup, they never told us they changed soup”
Hair in our butter for bread, no apologies for soup.

Food was good but a bit more expensive than I would expect.. Wasn’t overly impressed by anything, flavors were all good but our meat was a bit dry and the risotto was bland. The cocktails however were phenomenal! The winter in Manhattan tops my list as the best cocktail I’ve ever had. Ambiance and service were both incredible! I would definitely return but maybe only for cocktails and appetizers.
