Fantastic performance in beautiful outdoor setting. Don't miss it if you're a jazz fan, you'll be in for a real treat.
Limited shade, so prepare accordingly on sunny evenings.

The show was top rate and the view lovely with a nice outdoor setting.

I think that the wine by the glass was a little expensive. We found out too late that we could have brought our favorite wine and pay a $10 corkage fee which we would have...continued

We purchased tickets for ourselves and some friends. The setting was perfect, food was good and the entertainment was all that we expected. The atmosphere at the Marriott was wonderful. Clearly, everyone there truly enjoyed themselves.

Outstanding traditional jazz performers in a pleasant outdoor setting. Optional chow & drinks priced steeply but great jazz makes up for it.

This is THE best local jazz concert series in Orange County.

I don't think there is a bad seat in the house ... It's just lovely outdoors. The crowd is upscale, the hotel is beautiful, the scenery is breathtaking...just enjoy the fabulous music.
