My husband & I went to the Reservoir several years ago. We were a bit unsure when we got there but it turned out to be a great evening of music and fun. Great drinks, gourmet pizza and very friendly crowd! We are going back this summer for sure!

Reservoir Lounge is awesome! Great music and a sexy, candle lit atmosphere. The perfect place to end up on a date. Haven't eaten there but have been several times for the latenight music and dancing.

i went there last year with a friend, not knowing what to expect. There was a pianist playing boogie woogie, stride, new orleans funky style, with an upright bassist, drummer, saxophinist, pianist also sang. Sounded a bit like Harry Connick jnr with a bit of Ray Charles. They were amazing!
What was even more impressive, was that everybody there were dancing, all ages, oldies in the corner strutting their thang, and young kids right next to them dancing along.
Definitely a must to go and check out.
Thanks for a GREAT night!!

won't be visiting here again due to waitress chasing us out because we didn't leave enough tip (in her opinion)

tip was slightly below 15% and she felt it necessary to embarrass us in front of friends by chasing us to the door & being very rude and aggressive.

I found Reservoir lounge place to be pretentious and elitist. Depressing that jazz has become this in Toronto.

where are the decent jazz venue in T.O?
the Rex is full of fidgety old people and lacks any kind of atmosphere and the Res lounge is just...crap.

Amazing little place and great ambiance. A very sophisticated yet fun crowd and unbelievably good music. Reservoir is not your average jazz bar; there're people dancing, cheering and drinking.
By the look of this place through the window I did not expect to be blown away the way I was. Its a MUST that you go there but be sure to book a table well in advance if you dont plan standing all night. I mean about a week or two in advance. And dress well and I am sure it's a place you will keep going back too.
