Ralph Brennan's Jazz Kitchen Ratings and Reviews

Those choosing to dine here should understand that a large portion of the seating is outdoors -- there are a limited number of tables indoors. We happened to be dining on a very blustery, cold evening, and the only table available was in the atrium. There were heaters, but they were no protection from the fierce wind blowing through. We asked for a table inside and were told rather brusquely that the reservation just guaranteed A table -- not an inside table. We were told we could wait an indefinite amount of time for an indoor table, but we chose just to eat in the atrium. The food was okay -- a bit overpriced for what we received. The waiter rarely checked on us, and no one at our table received a refill of coffee. We would probably not eat here again.

I loved this restaurant. We enjoyed the Jazz Brunch. Standouts were the Pasta Jambalaya and the Chicken Etouffee. Chocolate Souffle was fantastic. Live music was very entertaining without overwhelming the room. It was all I had hoped for.

I mainly went to Jazz's Kitchen for the music. They dont let you know that you have to reserve tables where the band is performing. so they put us in the Queen's Room, where you eat. No band in there, couldn't enjoy any music. :(

Everything was great! Food and service was amazing! We really enjoyed dining here! Only downside was that we expressed we had an annual pass but never received our discount. All other restaurants gladly provide us with it but for some reason we never were given this at this particular restaurant.

Seated very quickly on a busy day. The food was great and they kept my soda full. We were seated in a busy area which wasn't the best. A little bit noisier than usual. The staff was very attentive and, again, the food was great.

Steaks were to die for. My son had the Black & Blue Filet Mignon and devoured it!! My husband and friend had the Grilled Medallions of Beef. I tried a bite and it just melted in your mouth. Wonderful flavor and tender. I had the Pasta Jambalaya which was suggested as one of the restaurant's favorites...it was good, with a little kick. After tasting the steaks..next time that is what I will do. Great food but a bit expensive!!!
We had to change our reservation time and was able to move it without any trouble. Only problem was we were seated outside right by kitchen and restrooms. Would have liked to be inside to enjoy the festive jazz music etc...that was the only down fall.

My family comes here every year for birthday dinners and we always have a lot of fun. We usually sit in the room with live music (the musicians are very fun and like to interact with the diners). It's a bit crowded, but lively. The food is wonderful! Thus far, I've tried most of the soups (the Gumbo Ya-Ya is really good) and appetizers (the calamari and crab cake are our favorites). My last visit, I got the Blackened Chicken Mac & Cheese, which was a lot better than I expected. The chicken and pasta were tender and delicious, not too cheesy, either. I couldn't finish it all that night, but it made a great lunch the next day. The desserts, the chocolate pudding souffle and the bananas foster, were also delicious. For the bananas foster, the waitress flambéd it right at our table!

I thought the restaurant itself was amazing. It was my first time there and I loved the decorations. Only gripe was the food. I got a really bad upset stomach. Could of been what I ordered but I will give this place another shot

Great food ... I do have to say I am disappointed in the end. Two drunk women next to us ...trying to take a selfie… spilled an entire glass of wine on my brand-new $65 Disneyland sweatshirt. The restaurant only offered me 10% off my meal… Really?? I was soaking wet with wine....it was 42deg outside... I was at Disney!!! They could have at least offered to take care ojf my meal . The lady that soaked me didn't even offer to pay or help ... I was litetally SOAKED with wine.... Disrespectful !!!!

This was my wife's birthday and she wanted to go there for dinner. We have eaten their many times. The food was great and she made comment that her steak medallions were excellent. She is a tuff food critic but this was great to hear from her. I will always recommend Brennan's for lunch or dinner. It can be pricey but worth it.

The service was good, the staff friendly and accommodating. The meal flowed very well with little wait time between courses. The food was good and hot which was great. We really enjoyed the live music. Had a great time

This is our family's top dining choice whenever we go to Disneyland. The food never disappoints and we love the atmosphere. We weren't able to get an outside table this time, but still had a great dining experience. Our server, Breanna, took excellent care of us!!! The prices are a bit high, but we know we will always have a fun, delicious, and memorable family dinner at Jazz Kitchen; totally worth it!

Went here for my 5th anniversary dinner and had a really good time. Solid food, good service, and fun live music. We had our 22 month old with us and the kitchen got her food out right away. As any parent knows, hungry kids are screaming kids, so we appreciated being able to feed her right away. Prices were high, but it's in downtown Disney so what else can you expect?

Fun atmosphere - lively and energetic. Very crowded. Service was friendly - but we sat with our used plates in front of us for a good 20 minutes and had to flag down our server to have them removed and to request our dessert. They probably needed a few more waiters for the very busy Friday night service. Food was average - salad was way overdressed and the fish was overcooked - but the menu is creative and there are a lot of nice choices to give you the feeling of being in New Orleans.

we completed the CHOC walk at Disneyland Park, Brennans is located in Downtown Disney , which is perfect for any meal or drinks if you are visiting the resort. Since this was a special event day for CHOC and Disney, 15 thousand walkers in the area. they had a limited menu, but all items were satisfactory, our server, Janell was great, attentive, but not too much, we wanted beignets which are served in the restaurant but not on the menu, she made sure we got the beignets, which are delicious. Brennan's also has music in the evenings, and great

For our daughter’s birthday and she wanted to experience the Jazz Kitchen. Now I consider myself a good cook. I am very aware of Southern food since my husband is from the south. I am also knowledgeable with Italian food from my years in Brooklyn NY. Let me start with the Blacken Chicken Mac & Cheese ($25.50) dish, which I ordered. This was not your "typical" mac & cheese dish, more like penne pasta with spicy red sauce and little chicken that I could see or taste. My husband ordered the Southern Fried Chicken ($27.50) plate which looked beautiful. However, I could clearly taste a hint of fish, which leads me to believe that the oil may have been reused from a prior deep fry fish item. . The cost is a bit pricey, but you are paying for the atmosphere, which is “club” like.
Now would we dine here again, yes! We'll give it one more go and hope that our second trip will have a more flavorful outcome for our taste buds.

Our experience was amazing. The staff was extremely friendly and service was swift, prompt, and accurate. The server catered to our needs and was absolutely wonderful with our special needs child. We never had to wait for refills and anything we asked for was brought out immediately. The food was absolutely perfect. We will definitely be returning for a meal on every upcoming Disney trip.

Sitting on the upstairs veranda was a lot of fun. We had a view of Disneyland's fireworks and the ambiance was great. We recommend the coconut shrimp appetizer, the blackened salmon entree and the fish of the day entree was excellent (Ono was the visiting fish when we were there). We had an amazing server, Jessica, who made our dinner extra special with her great energy and just overall great service and recommendations. We do not recommend the calamari appetizer.
