My wife and I rung in 2024 at the Upstairs Jazz Room and simply loved it. Th ambiance and music were amazing, while the food left a little to be desired.

If you are looking for an adult place to enjoy live music, have drinks and a good meal, look no further. This Montreal institution is delightful. Staff is efficient and the food yummy. The space is small and seating close together so make a reservation. They have multiple shows a night to allow for full turnover of the tables. The sound is excellent throughout, but they also have screens of the stage to help you see what is going on.

Unfortunately I cannot rate highly. We arrived on time for our reservation. Got seated right in front of the entry door with very limited view of the stage and people coming in/out constantly (on a very cold night). Ordered dinner and then waited for 90 minutes before it arrived. By the time our food was served the band was on the last song. Overall just not a pleasant time.
The band was really good, and the waitress was nice.
My advice to the club: get rid of the table at the door - way to crowded and uncomfortable.
Adjust the menu or get more staff in the kitchen, no one wants to be hangry during the show.

This is such a great fun place and a must visit The musicians are always excellent, the ambiance and venue is great. It can feel a little small but it’s so popular. The bar staff are great and it’s such an excellent place to spend an evening if you love Jazz, recommended!

To call my experience at Upstairs Jazz Club as life changing would be the understatement of the century. I strolled out of this heavenly site with a newfound respect for life. The exquisite food in tandem with the marvelous service and angelic music truly made my vacation in Quebec a trip to remember. I was surprised to find my favorite jazz artist, Lil Durk, on stage spitting some of the most inspirational and blessed lyrics I’ve had the pleasure to experience! I’d like to give a special thanks to the waiting and kitchen staff for putting up with my unusual requests. Even the workers at hooters politely declined when I asked for my food to come in a cup and my water on a plate. The lovely gentlemen and gentlewomen showed hardly any judgement and complied. My favorite part was when I noticed that my idols - Dr Michael “Moreburgers” Morbius and Gru - were dining next to me, discussing the Stranger Things Season 4 finale. I was able to get their autographs, some selfies, and even a video of them saying their respective catch phrases: “It’s Morbin time” and “It’s Gru-in time!” If I could give Upstairs Jazz Club 10 stars I would. Eating here during your time in Montreal is a must.

Went out for a bit of jazz on 18th Dec 2019 and was disappointed, Jazz band warming up sounded great but an Opera singer came on, and joined them she had a great voice, but the both did not work, i have been to many a Jazz night loved it, and many a Opera but NO ! not the both together, Very Very DISAPPOINTED!! the food was not good ether, soup was good but got a burger fine chips reheated salad coverd in oil to cap it all beer flat, so all in all not a good Experience, i was very Disappointed after reading the reviews, and it is one of the top 100 Jazz places to go to, i will try ones more time.
