Fodor's Review

Soft lights, mirrors, and good barbecue set the mood for fine jazz on the ground-floor mainstage, host to a steady showcase since the 1960s of new bands, favored locals, and stars like McCoy Tyner and Maynard Ferguson. But Ryles leads a merry double life, because meanwhile, the upstairs dancehall has earned its spurs as a Latin dancers' destination. There's world music Wednesdays and occasionally open-mic poetry. Ryles' ever-popular Sunday jazz brunch requires reservations. The reasonable cover charge varies and there's free parking for patrons.
