There's a great little place in New Orleans called Snug Harbor.

They pull this off to a successful degree, and have become well known in the Marigny.
They feature well known NO musicians, most notably from the Marsalis family. Papa Ellis plays there as a regular.

They can do this because it's NO, with its great musical depth. Tulane's music school has Ellis Marsalis as a jazz professor. People seek out NO, with its music festivals as a place to go. Food in NO is thought to be universally great. People seek out NO as a culinary destination.

Even with all that background and context Snug offers drinks and lesser food items at its tables, which all provide views of the stage, main floor and mezzanine, a cozy little place. They are careful to not let the dining interfere with the show.

So to sum, unless you have a context like theirs, which I doubt, stay away from restaurant/performance combos. Focus on either eating with ambient music, or performance with refreshments. Doing both will ruin both.
