I hoped that Jazzy's food would be as awesome as their vibe. Jazzy's food was absolutely phenomenal and they served large portions. The owner, Jason, visited our table to check-in our dining experience and it was very evident he genuinely cared that we had a phenomenal experience at Jazzy's. I highly recommend Jazzy's and hope that word gets out that we have another amazing restaurant in New Haven, CT. I would be remiss if I did not mention that parking is easy on Jazzy's portion of Orange Street.

Typically for me, other folks always order entree's that I wish I had, like the fried chicken, it was almost offensive watching the others person at our table enjoy it. The greens, okra, plantains were all a hit, and we sampled each others. It was an enjoyable evening and I plan on going back again.

Food was good, but not paired right. They can do some improvements on some things but overall it was ok. I might go back to see if they improved some things.
