Welcome to Alleycatz Live Jazz Bar Hip catz roll through this alley. Appropriately named, music lovers and food enthusiasts have made Alleycatz a popular dining and party destination. A menu with Mediterranean flair features dishes such as steak cooked to perfection and gourmet risottos, and a fun martini line up bears names like 'Orgasmic Catz,' combining raspberry vodka, Cointreau, Champagne, lime and cranberry. For an authentic 'supper club' experience, watch as the venue fills up with folks out to bust a few moves, every Thursday through Saturday night. After dinner, a live band and DJ let lose an infectious set of funk, soul, R&B and reggae. Salsa Mondays offer free lessons, and on Tuesdays stop by for live jazz. Jazz and Blues fans, Wednesdays are for you. In true Alleycatz style, these Wednesdays are where new talent like popular jazz singer Matthew Aaron Dusk began their career more...

Fun night, good food with wide selection. We used a Groupon and service was still excellent. Fun band, amazing service. Place is a little run down but otherwise high marks all the way.

My partner and I visited Alleycatz last night with a Groupon. The atmosphere of the restaurant was quite nice but everything else was such a disappointment. We were seated beside a large party of 10-12 people and I couldn't hear my partner talk and he was sitting across from me. (this is about the planning of who should sit where when people have reservations). We waited 13 minutes before anyone came to our table to introduce themselves or ask about food/drinks. Our appetizers took an additional 45 minutes (these were three pieces of bruschetta and three spring rolls). After this wait was another 25 minutes for our main course and then an additional 40 minutes for our dessert. the apps were disappointing and tasted like spring rolls I could buy at my grocery store and my mom makes much better bruschetta. Mains were meh and the desserts were even more of a disappointment. The ice cream had not properly been frozen and the cheese cake was still partially frozen. The prices for the food were much too overpriced for what you get . $25 for TWO medium sized shrimps and 6 oz piece of steak. The atmosphere was nice once the band came on but they played for 30 or so minutes and then the dj went on for at least 40. The website says that there would be a live band and we were really disappointed that they were overshadowed by a dj with a pre-set tracklist who was doing virtually no 'spinning' or djing. The FOH was quite kind and tried to help us out and explain the menus but the owner of the restaurant and was quite rude when we spoke to him. Apparently, a 2.5-3 wait for food was not a big enough problem for him to do anything for us. I've experienced poor service in the past and usually owners are friendly regardless of what they do and they care about their guest experience. My partner and I were there celebrating an anniversary and I can say that by the time we left our evening was ruined. I regret also buying my parents a groupon. If you see their ad on groupon its a bit of a scam. It was that the original price of their groupon is $94 and that on groupon it's on special for $55 or $60. The price of the pre-fix menu is $60 total. you're getting no deal here especially because the tax and tip are included on top and you have to pay the difference anyways ( you don't get to decide what to tip and this price cant be included in the $94 they advertise). If you're in the mood for GREAT food and GREAT service in TO on groupon go to Luci's and don't waste your time or money at this establishment. I'd give this 0 stars if I could.

Food was good and waiter Daniel was great Some other waiter however was loud giving orders to others which was affecting the atmosphere Enjoyed the night but would recommend to take that waiter aside and tone him down The seafood bisque tasted great but one of the mussels had a hole in it and was poor the other one was not open which is basic knowledge simply to discard both

I didn't know why I had to pay 25$ extra on the top of my groupon i thought I'll just pay extra 5$+tax for extra fries that we ordered. Basically I don't think so it was worth that much. The meal options were limited for geoupon users, which wasn't specified in the groupon. I thought we'll get to pick from menue. But we had a different menue to choose from which was very limited options. Overall it is not worth it.

Very loud, so you'll spend the night yelling amongst friends to hear each other, and seemed like a meat market for 40-60 year olds. Great band and music though!

Service was very slow and missing attention to detail. I ordered a tea and it came in warm water. Also it was green tea when didn't order green tea. I had to return a few things I ordered as it was different from what was written in the menu. Not impressive but the band was amazing so we stayed and danced.

Overall, food was wonderful. It came hot. The only thing is that we were seated in a shoebox table where I can barely fit in my leg under. In addition, I ask if they have coat check and they did not have any . I like the nice settings but the server gave us the wrong dessert. We ordered the truffle chocolate cake but they gave us brownies. Overall, it was good just the services was a bit off at the end. The server was friendly and liked their chicken and ribs winterlicious menu. I hope next time they do winterlicious menu they can provide salmon option. That would be fantastic.

The restaurant onesidedly cancelled my reservation despite calling me, talking to me. I spoke to them. I have emails and phone call records. The lied to me that they didn't call or confirm. Unashamedly they disallowed us a table. The embarrassed me in front of my guests.

On the Winterlicious menu: eggplant cannelloni with roasted spinach, ricotta and parmesan; giant wild mushroom ravioli; and dessert options like tuxedo truffle mousse cake and classic chocolate ice brownie.

Midtown Toronto spots where you can put on dancing shoes

There’s music and dancing every night of the week except Sunday at this dinner-dance spot, and that’s only because there’s likely a private party going on. Depending on what evening you go, you can take in jazz, soul, R&B, blues, west coast swing, funk, pop and DJ salsa and bacchata. There’s no cover for the jazz on Latin dance nights. Warm up with a free lesson before the partying begins. The menu is fusion Mediterranean, so feel free to work up an appetite.
