If you like jazz, you'll love the music here. The venue is beautiful, and the sound is excellent. The food selection is limited and the service can be a bit spotty, because there are a lot of people and a limited time, but the food quality is...continued

Loved the music and the ambiance! Did not order food. But the wine was fine. Nice way to enjoy these warm summer nights away from the norm.

The music was outstanding and I liked the venue. HOWEVER: I ordered and paid for the Blue Section seats and got the worst table in the house.

The venue was good, the music and sunset were great.
The tables were a little too close together and the servers were hard to flag down, but that was a minor inconvience. At the break we enjoyed the ambiance and warmth of the firepits overlooking...continued

From a score of 1-10, the evening was a smashing 10+!!

The music and setting were nice, but it was a very old crowd... We actually didn't use the tickets... But we were able to enjoy it just as much from the fire pits just above with a glass of wine...

Dena Derose always puts on a solid performance where ever she plays. The added bonus this time around was the addition of Ann Paterson on tenor saxophone. Anne added some solid be-bop licks to compliment Dena's smooth movements on the keyboard.

Excellent program. Arrive early to avoid seating facing the setting sun until 6:30. West Coast Jazz Party has a good track record supporting straight ahead jazz.
