What can I say that hasn't already been said? Grammy award winning artists and dumplings. This place impresses on every level. If you haven't been, you're really missing out.

The meal; din sum, firecracker beef, chicken, desserts and great music. Couldn't have had a nicer day. The owners and staff are friendly and helpful.

The entertainment was A+. A four piece jazz group that sounded great and interacted with the crowd all night. Though we finished eating early in the... More

This place is a gem: fantastic service, delicious food and great entertainment all under the command of the insightful owner and chief of floor. I was taken here by close friends who live in this upscale genteel and classic NJ town. We had bang bang beef, 3 spice chicken, pad Thai and more. Excellent wine list. Faultless restaurant with a...

The service was excellent and attentive and the Asian food wonderful. We enjoyed the live Cuban Jazz music while 6 of us feasted on an assortment of specialty dishes prepared for us. The manger was fantastic, making certain we were cared for. It was Saturday night and they were packed but that didn't detract the least from us having a... More

I took my Husband here for his birthday and we both really enjoyed the food we ordered. They were super busy but the owner and/or manager (from what i could tell) was very attentive to all tables. There was a mix or couples, families and large groups of people. It seems like a pretty universal place for everyone.

Shanghai Jazz is a very unique venue. The music is always very new & relatively local. Always someone playing who is on the move on up. You can sit at a table or at the bar for a bite to eat and some wine. A great place to go to relax.
