“Jazz Asian Fusion Fun”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

We had a great time eating at this dual purpose Asian restaurant and Jazz club. The chinese dishes were very good with unique flavors. The dumplings were ok but not the best. The servings were very large. The staff were fantastic and happy to please. The dining room is a bit small but this fits the Jazz club feel. The artist performing on the night of our visit was international and very entertaining. With the combination of good food and great jazz, this is the next best thing to going to a NYC jazz club.

“Great place for music and Asian fare”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

I have been going to Shanghai Jazz for years for the food, the jazz and the warm, friendly staff and owners. They have top notch music every day of the week so I go there with my family and friends on weekends, and when I am entertaining business guests during the week.
I recommend starting with the dim sum sampler where they bring you a nice assortment of appetizers, and then having their wide range of Asian entrees such as the lobster with ginger and scallions, the three chili chicken and the filet mignon.
The place has a great atmosphere and a friendly vibe.

“Excellent Food”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

We visited Shanghai Jazz with another couple and had a great evening. The restaurant does a good job of creating somewhat different dishes than the usual chinese takeout. The dumpling sampler was quite sumptuous and enough for all 4 of us. (Chicken pot-stickers were a bit hard). We had hot and sour soup which was quite good. We really enjoyed the soft, nicely spiced chicken with three chillies and also the tofu with mushrooms. There was a live musical performance from a fairly good jazz band. All in all a great evening. And oh by the way, the restaurant has a good bar and we enjoyed the cocktails. Caution, maybe too loud for a quiet evening or if you are going with business people to conduct some conversation.

The food is too pricy for the quality but you still get the music as a bonus. Very nice, every on e in a while
