    It was my husband's birthday and I had reserved a table so he could get a good view of the band as he loves jazz. 1 The band was not playing jazz 2. They gave us the worst table in the house by the entrance door with no view of the band. Said they would move us when people left but never did. I asked them half way through but they ignored me 2. Overpriced cocktails with awful presentation in awful glasses 3. Tables sticky and unclean Just a really disappointing night and would never go back and to add insult to injury had to pay £20 entrance fee for no view of the band, no jazz and to be given a worse reserved table than walk ins 3.

    It's not a place to have supper. Food isn't this place's asset. The vibe, music and friendly staff ARE though. We had a few snacks, it wasn't great but at 11 at night it helped soak up all the reasonably priced drinks. It's a great place to end an evening ..... or early morning!

    Sound wasn’t great. Had to tell the singer that she couldn’t be heard properly and then it improved slightly. The staff or owners should have told them as it would have made the experience so much better.

    Good food, good service. This place comes alive when the band starts, Jada-Funk played on our evening at Jazz after Dark and they were outstanding!! Playing covers with their own funky arrangements and soulful vocals.....we loved it! The intimacy of the small venue adds to the experience, we did however lose our table when more people came in and we were asked to move to accommodate them - made us feel a little chased out as we had wanted to stay all night.

    It was absolutely awful. The platter of tapas for £20 was ridiculous, it had no taste and was still frozen! Felt like I’m eating a platter from Tesco. Honestly bad vibe, bad service, terrible interior and food. Coctails were actually good.

    It was really easy to book through open table and when we arrived we went straight to the table. I enjoyed the fact that it was quite intimate although didn't realise at the tie when booking it was pretty good. The band that was on was good and we had a great time. Food was good. Nice.

    The Jazz is for sure a great experience, the Tuesday band is fantastic, energetic and has a great range of songs. However, the food is probably the worst i have had. They are lovely people and it actually sadden me to give such a mixed reviews but it definitely has to be done. All in all great music experience but go for drinks and have dinner beforehand!

    The music was great, but the customer service was poor. We booked a table which wasn't there as the online reservations weren't checked. We then got constantly chased to order, in spite of having paid the substantial entrance fee, and we were told off for not having cash ready and trying to pay separately by card.

    We wanted to go mainly for the music which starts at 10:30 pm. However at internet the latest time slot we could book was 9:00 pm, meaning we had to have food there. Food was very poor. Limited choice, bad taste, poor service and not giving the impression that hygiene was at satisfactory level. Music was great though!

    We didn't eat, hence no score for food but everything else was great, brilliant band, great music and lovely staff... Atmosphere was up there, really friendly and other customers on separate tables were equally impressed.. All happy to chat to each other, dance together and generally feel that a good night was had by all.. Thank you Jadey; as a band you pulled it all together with great tunes, vibe and audience connection!

    I booked a solo table for my golden birthday. The staff was quick and polite. I consumed several jugs of Back to Black (it was divine). My most memorable experience, aside from the house band, was being able to chat with Sam Shaker. He is very laidback and took time to ensure I was having a pleasant evening on my own. As a student the Saturday night cover fee was a bit out of my budget but I will most definitely return on a weeknight.

    The food and service were unreal, absolutely amazing, however the singer in the band was about a semitome out of key for the whole performance but seemed to think he was amazing, even when heckled. Music was quite loud. £22 for a hug of strawberry daquiri is also pretty fair considering London prices

    I never been to a Jazz club before so I didn't know what to expect. In opinion Jazz After Dark is very original with an electric atmosphere, and the band called Transcendence was incredible, very talented musicians . We were lucky to have a table right at the from and to see the band so close was amazing, so booking in advance is the right choice. Good selection of drinks and sensible prices, we didn't eat so I can't comment about their food. Was One of the best nights I had in London, specifically for a Father's day treat. We will definitely come back . Gustavo

    Music wasn’t Jazz, was all just pop and rock covers. Wasn’t worth £15 a person at all. Drinks were overpriced, tables wonky, table was always wet but wouldn’t give coasters or napkins. Felt the place was cashing in on Amy Winehouse’s affiliation way too much also.

    This was my 3rd and last time at Jazz After Dark. First couple of times we had very good time, the band was really great and although the place is shabby and food is not great, we had enjoyed the experience. This time they had an amateur band with the singer playing off key at times and standard karaoke-like vocals overall. And we were charged £15 /each, just for the live music... I will never return.
