Great show and the food was much better than I expected from a club. Good views of the stage from where ever you sit.

I had a lovely conversation with the bartender and he made me a terrific drink even though he was very busy. The seating was comfortable and the music was great. The entrance was a little confusing but we found the line and the hostess was...continued

We really enjoy Bad Influence and the Ori Naftaly Band. And we so happy to see that the Bethesda Blues and Jazz Club is bringing lots of folks. We live very close and really enjoy having live music so available.

Four of us bought tickets for the Wednesday night show featuring Lyndsey Highlander. It was a small crowd with the entire audience seated in two rows of tables on the floor in front of the stage. Despite the small crowd Ms. Highlander delivered...continued

Venue is great. Short walk from Bethesda metro. Service was slow and unattentive. Food not so great.
Stay away from the chicken gumbo:(
Music- No blues or jazz.
Will try again for the music.

Nice space and the band was great. Service was pretty good for a club. The food was just OK, but that seems standard for a music club. If you are particular about food you might try eating at a nearby place and then just coming for a drink and...continued

Bria Skonburg and her group were not disappointing. The service was fair, the food terrible. Sent it back- replacements only a little better. Paid for one order. Menu needs a review. Pricey for what it is. Would rather pay more for a ticket.

If I could rate the music and food separately, music would be 5+. Blue Sky 5 was fabulous; the right mix of vocal and instrumental--all players extremely talented. However...food is at best a 3--disappointing (coconut shrimp over-fried, no taste...continued

The music was good but the food was AWFUL!
Calamari tasted like it was shaken out of a frozen bag, Salmon overcooked, rice tasteless and then found a rubberband in my greens. They tried to make good but lost my appetite. I went for what I...continued

The music and atmosphere was great. There were hardly any people there so we hope this place does well. Food is not great, next time I will eat somewhere and just have drinks there. Food is like TGIF or Ruby Tuesdays but double the price and...continued

Beautiful venue...had great seats. Wine was delish and the clam chowder was really good. Didn't care too much for the calamari. Enjoyed Lady Rose and her awesome band. Great place and will go back.

Great venue. Not a bad seat in the house. Great acoustics. Great service - a little slow, but yeah, I was not in a hurry. It's about a 3 city block walk from the Bethesda Metro stop, so there's no excuse not to go b/c it's easy to get there.

The singer is very uninspired. I felt bad for the orchestra because a small house is tough, but they played some good pieces.

The venue was beautiful and reminiscent of days past. The orchestra was stupendous with exceptionally talented musicians. The location was perfect including great parking. The service, however, was less than fabulous. It took an hour for our order...continued
