A must if you are in Omaha for the CWS, a concert, or just need a night out. Jazz has great food, great music, and an ambience that is second only to New Orleans itself. It's Mardi Gras everyday at Jazz. The Voodoo crawfish tails are a wonderful appetizer if you like something with a kick. The menu is packed... More

Don't go here. This was one of our most favorite Omaha restaurants for very good food, good drinks and fun. The staff was always very attentive, but all that has changed. There has been a change in management that has allowed this restaurant to dramatically and quickly slide downhill. We have gone twice in the last 3 months and have... More

I frequently seek New Orleans, Cajun and or Creole cuisine when I travel and my experience with some of the restaurants in the sky miles dinning network has really been hit or miss. I was very pleasantly surprised on a business trip to Omaha last week. I visited the Jazz-A Louisiana Kitchen in downtown Omaha and placed a carry out... More

This is a fun place to eat for a chain. The food is spicy and good quality. The desserts with Chantily Cream are decadent.

I was hoping for a little more zing, to the flavor of my meal, specially when I selected the Cajun Shrimp for lunch. The fried shrimp I was served was okay in size, but had absolutely no cajun flavor, very bland. If I wanted that I could have gone to the store and bought a box of Mrs. Paul's. Even... More

My wife and I, another couple, and a single friend ate at Jazz on a Saturday night in February. Our single friend wears hearing aids and the rest of us are advancing in age. The band was good, but it was really loud. The ambient noise caused our friend to take off his hearing aids, so he could be comfortable.... More

Interesting environment in a prime location, but the food really fell short. We each chose a seafood option and nether tasted fresh. I had Shrimp and Scallop Ponchartrain. It was served on a platter with a pile of rice. The platter was covered with a creamy sauce, but there could not have been more than a half cup of seafood.... More

This place came recommended to us by several of the locals. The food was very tasty and very well prepared! The service was very good. The portion sizes were good for the price. Jazz is not an overly expensive place and has a nice feel to the restaurant.

Jazz puts you in the heart of Bourbon St. with its decor, sounds, and great Nawlins flavors. The gumbo is a standout and would recommend to any gumbo lover. Also had the popcorn shrimp. Will be back

I went with a friend, my husband and our baby on a Sunday evening. It was quiet at the restaurant, but everything was really yummy! I got chicken a la mer (probably spelled wrong), but it was yummy. He got a steak with house made steak sauce, and she gor shrimp creole. Everyone was happy. We took home leftovers and... More
