    Your manager should be fired. He allowed an entire table to completely control your restaurant. The lack of class, rudeness and outright disrespect bestowed upon every other diner should have been cause to remove the entire group from your premise. The volume at which they chatted was disruptive to what should have been an elegant, peaceful dinner. They were over-served to the point of slurring their words. Their behavior was extremely disrespectful to the band playing, acting as if they were at a hen night rather than at a jazz club. After bribing your manager for a table away from the rude guests, my wife and I continued to watch table after table leave because of their poor behavior. Yes, I had to give your manager bank notes in order to achieve some form of peace so that our dinner was not ruined. But it was. Sadly, our memory will not be of the good food or delicious cocktails but of your companies ineptitude.

    Food and service was impeccable. Waiting staff were very knowledgeable and helpful on suggestions for food and wine. We were out for a birthday celebration and all waiting staff mentioned this at least once and brought a small dessert out at the end. Really nice touch.

    Bert's Jazz Bar was one of the highlights of our trip to Belfast for my partner's birthday. The wait staff were polite and helpful and they even brought out an extra dessert for my partner's birthday. We had steak and pork belly, both outstandingly delicious. We shared a toffee baked Alaska for dessert too, which was equally as amazing and something unique. The atmosphere was nice, we arrived before the live jazz so unfortunately did not get to experience it, but the jazz on the stereo was nice and we were not sure whether it would have been too loud if we were eating with live music, as it was already quite busy. But that's just testament to how good the food is!

    Staff were very attentive but not over-bearing; very friendly too. We were early for our booking and I requested a booth for when we returned. We went to the bar upstairs until the time our booking was for and when we returned, they were able to give us a booth which was great. Food (steak) that we ordered melted in your mouth... have eaten here many times and will definitely be back!

    Great place glad we had booked this before our visit. Most people we meet recommended this as a place to go and they were right it is a popular venue with a different theme live jazz with a small but good menu and selection of drinks cocktails. A little more expensive but you are paying for the venue and entrrtainment so all in all good value.

    We always enjoy the food and atmosphere here. Service from our Italian waiter, (Mario?) was excellent. We thought the acoustics for the jazz could have been slightly better but this is a minor issue in what was an otherwise enjoyable evening.

    Another 5 star experience. This is the first visit from the Pandemic. Went to the Cocktail Bar first, and then to Berts for dinner, drinks and Jazz. Food, drink and service was outstanding as always. Loved the jazz. A perfect night out. A 5 star experience yet again, and as always from The Merchant Hotel.

    Brilliant evening; live jazz, good food and (proper) waiter service. Went on a Sunday evening so they were relaxed about 2 hour window for your booking but did not stay beyond that anyway despite the jazz trio being excellent. Enough said.
