We've eaten here once before and love the food! Great casual laid back environment. Authentic creole and Cajun dishes. I love the crab cakes and the crawfish creole. Friday nights is popping with live music!

I came to the restaurant to enjoy some seafood with a very good friend. My first order was "The St Charles" . It had imitation crap meat in it & that gets very mushy after sitting in sauce for a while. I informed the manager that i was very sorry but i would rather have something else. He said he... More

The "Jazz" kitchen restaurant is a great place for Cajun food, in my opinion. It's as authentic as some popular Cajun food places in KC. The one close to KUMC hospital is a rather small place but during the Lunch time I've not seen anyone waiting for a place to sit. Great atmosphere, great "Cajun" decorations on the walls and...

Went for a quiet dinner date here recently. I wish I had come sooner. I really enjoy the food and the atmosphere. Plus some live jazz pleased me to no end. Will go again with another beautiful lady.

When I travel to Kansas City, I like to set 1 meal aside to come here. I've been eating here for close to 25 years without ever having a bad meal. Point to anything on the menu, and you can't go wrong. Save room for dessert, the beignets are worth a trip themselves.

What a place! Watch the portions as they're not what I am used to in the UK. Food excellent, only reason not to give it five out of five is 2 mistakes on our bill so (obviously), check your bill before paying.

Looked this up as next to where I was staying was virtually all fast food and homey don't eat that. This is a little dive joint that will remind you of places in New Orleans (which is what they are trying to accomplish). Our server was very good/nice/knowledgeable. I had an oyster po boy that was ok (certainly not New... More

We ate here before an afternoon Royals game. It has a fun atmosphere, good prices, and large menu. Everyone liked what they ordered.
