Degage Jazz Cafe & Fine Dining and Degage Express: Soups, Sandwiches & Such Ratings and Reviews
We headed out on the town to find a special stop for our celebrated birthdays. Degage is such a diamond on the outskirts of Maumee. Sitting close to the waterfront it would be a great place to visit in the summer on the patio. Both my husband and I were pleasantly surprised with great food, service, and jazz ambiance. It was a wonderful place to enjoy conversation and jazz music. I would recommend this resteraunt to anyone for a special occasion!
Unfortunately the food was absolutely a disaster. How can a chef mess up a goodbquality cut of meat? Filet mignon...Three (3) times. My husband took his dinner home because he was being nice after the second time. We brought it home and trashed it. It was not edibe. The mash potatoes can't be described as potatoes. The Brussels sprouts were not cooked. The salad was fine. Our server became less interested in serving us after noting the obvious. ( Emily/Emma) she became less and less scared. We had different servers serve us water. We still left a decent tip. We will never have dinner here ever again but we did enjoy the live band.
We've been here before, and the food has always been top notch. This time I ordered the beef brisket. It was one of the best briskets I've ever had, and I lived in Texas for 10 years. The brisket was smoked perfectly and very tender. Served with what I think was a home made steak sauce, the flavor was amazing. It melted in your mouth.
My fiancee had the bourbon glazed wood plank salmon. This too was a great choice, with the plank adding a little smoky flavor, and the bourbon glaze was not overpowering. A perfect balance.
All in all, a wonderful experience.
We were disappointed that the menu had changed so dramatically since the last time we visited. We were excited to order something that was no longer offered. MANY things were no longer offered.
What we ordered was fine....just fine. But it was nothing that would make us rush back for more.
Our waitress was a doll, but the service was incredibly slow. The restaurant was far from full, yet we waited nearly an hour for our food. I know that our waitress felt bad when I jokingly said, "I'm starving!"
We love that it's local, love the location, love the ambiance.
But, man, were we disappointed in the food selection and service.
Out with my wife. Jazz, from Mr. Buzzelli, gave a mellow tempo to the night's meal. My wife had a burger, Caesar salad, & spinach/artichoke dip with pita while myself had frites, salad, & pasta of the season which was chicken penne pasta with peanut sauce & pear apple cider to wash it down...Loved it & will visit again once time & finances return.
My husband and I went for New Year's Eve dinner and the food was absolutely fabulous. I was a little disappointed that they ran out of creme brulee dessert so early in the evening (8pm). The music was hard to hear at our table, the noise level was too loud to hear through the speaker system until the loud group left. You could see the performance on the screen, but couldn't hear anything but the bass, unfortunately. I definitely want to go back at another, not so raucus evening. I love jazz/blues and the food was really fantastic.
We went to Degage for our sixth weddding anniversary. We did not inform the staff of this and I still feel as though they made the experience great. They were very attentive to our needs and very helpful when we had questions. The food was wonderful and looked beautiful on the plates. Our tradition is to try a restaurant we've never been to for our anniversary dinner. Degage was definitely the best choice we could have made this year.
Went there Wednesday evening for dinner and had not been there in a long time. They were slammed as Gene Parker was playing. Had to drop off the ladies and park a block away. Since they were slammed, service was a bit slower than anticipated but not bad at all. Food was good. Beer was cold. We opted for seating in the dining room over the bar as we were interested in conversation more than Jazz on this particular evening. Overall a pleasant experience and won't wait so long to return.
We have been there several times and always get seated in the Jazz cafe. Not even sure there is another dining area. But if you are going for conversation etc, this is not the place to go. The music although good, was loud and it's very dark in there. Would return for drinks and music but will pass on going for dinner again
Excellent food with intimate music experience. This is place to be for jazz lovers like myself. The young group playing night of the 16th truly refreshing from electrifying drummer, calm collected pianist to the passionate technically gifted bassist virtuoso. Bravo to all!!!
This is our third experience with degage. The first two times were very very good . This last time was a huge disappointment. The atmosphere was wonderful however the food was off-base . The appetizers were very good tho,
Especially the bacon on the stick additional appetizers were ordered for that. My chicken dinner was burnt . The pirogi special was very sparse for the cost , but tasted fine . Four others barely ate their sandwiches . The steak and salmon dinners I was told were good. I am sorry to say it will not be our first choice to come here again with our friends .
Nice service, live jazz band on the night we dined. Okay food, nothing remarkable. We had the Carnivore appetizer, overpriced for small portions, nothing special on it...cedar plank salmon nicely prepared, rack of lamb, two tiny chops, touch to cut, eat, flavorless.
Expected better, but will go back and try the Sunday brunch.
Don't think I will be visiting here anymore, at least not for dinner. This is the second time we went there and they ran out of the food we ordered. Second option was overcooked and very salty. Waiter was nice but it took entirely too long for our food to come. Good idea for my birthday, just wish the experience was better.
We absolutely enjoyed eating at Degage for my husband's birthday dinner. The food was OUTSTANDING, the server was very interactive and conversational and the atmosphere was perfect :)
We said that even though we came here for a dinner date for my husband's birthday, we would come to just sit at the bar and grab a drink and an appetizer and hang out.
A larger selection on the menu would be nice. The mixed drinks /cocktails were watered down and expensive. At one time Degage had wonderful martinis and margaritas- this may be due to inexpensive liquors and an inexperienced bartender. Fried chicken selection was wonderful and our waitress was wonderful.
The atmosphere was great, the service and food was not great. It took almost an hour to get our food once it was ordered. My chicken was burnt and my husbands steak was well done, he ordered it medium. Our server never came to check on us after we ordered or even after we got our food. We had to find her when we needed the check, only to find her socializing and playing with her phone.
