Jazz Bistro, Missouri City

My wife and I recently visited the Jazz Bistro, in Missouri City on a weekend evening. Their menu states "Where great food meets great ambiance and great service" , we received none of the above.
We called the restaurant and the recorded message stated they opened at 4:00 pm for dinner, we arrived at 6:30 and were told the kitchen opens at 7:00 but we were welcome to have a drink and an appetizer while we waited. We ordered the shrimp cocktail, it arrived warm as if it was just thawed in the microwave.
We ordered our entrees at 7:00, my first selection the Cajun pork chops were not available. I then ordered the baby-back ribs and my wife ordered the chicken fettuccine. An hour later we had not received our entrees despite several assurances from our waiter that they would be out in a few minutes. The excuses ranged from our waiter saying "we are really backed up in the kitchen" (when we ordered only two other tables were occupied) to the hostess saying "the chef has been delayed".
During our long wait for our entrees the live band stated playing and were so loud my wife and I could not carry on a conversation although we were nearly on the opposite end of the restaurant.

After an hour and fifteen minutes and no food we asked for our check so we are not able to comment on the quality of the entrees, we will not return to find out.
