Service was excellent. My beef was quite dry and my husbands steak was full of gristle. The setting and atmosphere was super. It was lovely to be able to reserve a table at the bar after we had eaten so we could enjoy the jazz.

Christmas at Berts Jazz Bar was gorgeous. Food was beautiful, atmosphere perfect. Singer was beautiful. Wine and whiskey selection was good. In a perfect world I’d have liked it to be cheaper but what a night we had.

The food, customer service and atmosphere where all excellent.

Inside of Bert’s the tables where all well-spaced out and the covid protocols followed - so you felt safe whilst inside.

A special mention to Louis and the team who looked after us from arriving at the restauarant to leaving on Monday night.... this level of service is what you pay the extra money for – please keep up the great work – it is appreciated....

FOOD
The mussels followed by the chateaubriand was amazing - the beef was so tender and was cooked to perfection - it literally was like cutting a hot knife through butter. It’s not cheap but in my opinion it was worth the extra money. For dessert the Espresso Creme Brulé was to die for.... this was all enjoyed whilst listening to the resident Jazz duo who were also excellent, and played a variety of live music to keep the whole place entertained…

Overall – Excellent experience +++++ We thoroughly enjoyed Bert’s and will definitely book again the next time we are staying over in Belfast

Our first visit to Berts and we will definitely be back. The service was on another level, the food was delicious and the cocktails were perfect. I ordered a french martini and the bar man actually gave me the recipe as I was so so impressed with it.
Thanks for a fantastic evening!!

Great food, wine and music. If you want to talk whilst eating and listening to live music, sit away from the stage or even better enjoy the magnificent food and music and catch up with your guests in the music intervals

Visiting Belfast for a long weekend. Booked her for my fiancés birthday as he loves jazz. Food was amazing and the staff were extremely helpful and accommodating. Even bringing out a small desert plate with happy birthday written on and a few treats on it. Would highly recommend and will go back when visiting Belfast again.
