We went to Shanghai Jazz as part of a birthday celebration A Thursday night). The vocalist was Brynn Stanley, a young woman from the area now living in CA. She and her group were excellent. The food was very good, Chinese fare - all 4 of our meals were thoroughly enjoyed. Music was from 7 P until 9P and most customers stayed for the 2 sets - the table was ours for the evening. They apparently they have jazz every night,

Tried this hidden treasure for an anniversary dinner so the pressure was on. Shanghai Jazz delivered in every way. Delicious food, perfect service and a truly intimate atmosphere provided for the perfect setting. The live music was top notch- enjoyable and just the right volume. Perfect date night, couples night, or group event. Truly extraordinary.By the way, try the Firecracker beef... Already excited to go back!

I went to Shanghai Jazz with a large business group and we all have a super time! Food was plentiful and tasty. Music was low key and perfect for the group as there was lots of conversation going on. We did not order off of the menu but had the opportunity to sample six different appetizers as well as four main dish items. The servers had large trays and served us continually. The owner was fantastic and explained the meaning behind each dish that was being served. She was a most gracious host and this enhanced the overall dining experience.

It's hard to please 50+ people and have everyone happy but Shanghai Jazz was up to the task. The whole group was pleased as this was a nice diversion from the typical chop house that we normally expect to dine when in this type of business gathering.

I can't speak to the cost as the menu was already selected for us and no prices were shown but can say a good time was had by all.

During a recent visit to NY, knowing our love of jazz and our appreciation of excellent cuisine, our dear friends took us to Shanghai Jazz in Madison, NJ. The selection, preparation and presentation of menu items (including cocktails) was superb. The featured Cuban jazz trio provided a comforting, yet stimulating background. The service was outstanding including a personal hello from the owners delivering complimentary aperitifs to our table. A venue of this caliber is usually found in a busy, noisy metropolitan city. Shanghai Jazz is nestled among local store fronts in an upscale NYC suburb. Lots of parking in the lot behind the club and on the street in front. Call early for a reservation and get ready for a five star experience for all five senses.
