Fun experience and relaxing.

small building. Make reservations. Music is loud. Unable to have conversation during music playing.

Parking on First Thursday is VERY difficult, but other than that, I don't have any special tips. We have been there just to enjoy the music after we have eaten elsewhere, but mostly we have enjoyed dinner and the entertainment which has always been good and varied. This has been our favorite jazz lounge. I'm so sad to see Ivories close.

Be sure to go early enough...6:00pm the absolute latest on either Friday or Saturday evening unless you don't mind the additional $10 cover charge per person for the entertainment which begins at 8:00 pm. The food was good and until the venue became quite busy, the service was fine. After that, we were a bit rushed because the wait people were to busy to get back to us quickly. Would go back.

It wasn't phenomenal, but it wasn't bad. They usually tack on an extra $8 per person, since there are live bands, on top of your bill. Since we don't have a scale rating (Groupon only says Good or Not Really), I'd say 3.5/5

Great food, made with fresh ingrediants. Each course was better than the last. Music delightful. Not all jazz.

Don't forget that you will need to pay the cover charge - $8 per person and up. The dinners are quite good - if oversalted - and the staff are great - they are helpful with vegan/veggie alternatives. If the multi course is too much you can easily reture for a simpler meal or snack. Musicians include some real Portland notables.

From Our Editors

It's a timeless scene: a man in a suit masterfully navigates the ivory keys of a Mason & Hamlin grand piano on a small stage, its Plexiglas lid illuminating the hammers as they delicately pad along the strings. On stools gathered around the instrument, a couple dines on braised filet mignon, and a bit farther back in the softly lit, intimate venue, a waiter carries a tray of gourmet cocktails. Every night, Ivories Jazz Lounge & Restaurant sets the stage for world-class jazz players and the culinary stylings of chef and occasional ice sculptor Art Trafton. The menu is loaded with supper-club classics such as beef au poivre, mixed grille, and a diverse selection of pastas. The bar stirs up similarly comforting signature drinks, among them the alpine with peppermint schnapps, whipped cream, and hot cocoa. Around dusk, ensembles that often include founder and master pianist Jim Templeton take to the stage with a blend of improvisation and standards. Nightly events range from jazz collectives to blues players, and occasionally depart from the jazz-club template to feature standup, poetry, and workshops on topics ranging from music to jazz-style stage-diving etiquette.
