Time Out says
This good-looking new Canary Wharf restaurant comes from the team behind Bellaria, Bacco (both Italian) and Kilikya (Turkish). Here the culinary focus is broadened out to Mediterranean small plates but the USP is live jazz – served up from 5pm every night. Maybe that explains the unconventional name?
Dishes here range from lobster ravioli and pan-fried monkfish to slow-cooked ox cheek, chicken ballotine, a foie gras risotto and a purple artichoke salad with truffle dressing, pickled carrots and cucumber finished with gorgonzola ‘snow’. Charcuterie, vegetable and cheese boards also feature.
Cocktails look a focus too, and there's an interesting-looking G&T menu reading like a who's-who of quality gin producers – think Hendrick's, Tanqueray, Sipsmith, Portobello, Ophir and Monkey Fortyseven. There’s a decent number of wines in the £20-£30 region but plenty to get the City boys interested at the upper end, too.
Keep an eye out for special events and notable acts on the music programme.

This worse restaurant ever I visit,we have booked table for Valentine Day at 21.30 when we arrive one of manager said that are have some delays and we need to wait for 15 min. We has been waitingover one hour to have get sit at table, after thatwe waitingto someone to come and serve us for 20 min, when is waiter coming with menu said that run out of some food from menu ……......not recommended and never back myself.
New menu is amazing, and really tasty. Recommend the seafood linguine, absolute winner. I love this place for a Friday night after work, just has everything, good food, cocktails, live music.. 10/10
Wonderful evening at Jazzgir for Valentines Night! Delightful food, spectacular service & very talented singer. When we arrived the waitress greeted us with a glass of prosecco, nice touch! and my partner and i just had the most lovely evening ever.
Don't know what below guy is waffling on about - must have wrong venue. We had a lovely Valentines Day evening dinner last night. The attention to detail was second to none; not only with the staff and attentive service to us but the food was outstanding and exemplary. We booked a table for 9.30pm and were welcomed and shown to our table with efficiency and courteously. We would highly recommend Jazzgir; not only for special occasions but an all-round great evening experience! Fabulous and very enjoyable. Thank you!
Quality restaurant accompanied by great live music. A great Friday night treat for my boyfriend and I, we were absolutely blown away!
Great service too, thank you for having us - we will definitely be back soon x
If your looking for a place to impress, Jazzgir has it all. Fine dining, gorgeous cocktails, live music & beautiful views.
My boyfriend and I are big jazz fans, so we came here to watch Karsu Donmez and were absolutely thrilled with her performance. The restaurant had a great ambience, and exceptional service all night. Dinner was delightful and so many options, we opted for the set menu which came with a complimentary bottle of wine.
Just have to say you cannot fault Jazzgir for live music, we really was wowed on Saturday and cannot wait to book again.
Took my girlfriend here at lunch time, very impressive - Also big thanks to Greg for looking after us, top guy!
Finally a place in Canary Wharf i can let my hair down, unpretentious, the staff are sooo nice. Late review, but we came on New years eve to see DJ Sarah Jane and had the best time - this is the restaurant for a nice dinner and dance #Loveeee
Good for date night, as there is live music Thurs-Sat and the menu is based on a sharing concept. This is where you can order five dishes from the menu at £50, being greedy and there's so much choice we over ordered and selected 8. Really if your drinking wine and not starving 5 dishes is definitely enough for two people. Also make sure your try the Jazzgir Cuban Cigar ;) you'll thank me later x
Being a vegan is quite tough usually, but Jazzgir are very accommodating and have a good selection on the menu to choose from. Would highly recommend for all veggies to try the Wild Creamy Mushroom Croquettes - served with tomato and chilli jam and also the Truffle Hunting dish - truffle arancini laid in mushroom soil.. you will not be disappointed!
As a local resident in the area, I have been keen to try Jazzgir for quite sometime now..
and I was pleasantly surprised, great interior, gorgeous food and the best cocktails i have had for quite some time. Will be back on Friday for after work drinks just in time for HAPPY HOUR!
Fantastic venue for Jazz lovers! So lovely to find a place with good music and food at the same time.
Would definitely recommend this place for Saturday evenings!
I don't usually venture out to Canary Wharf so this was a complete treat and surprise! It was recommended by a friend who works nearby as a great place to listen to live music - and it did not disappoint. So hard to find somewhere in London where you can listen to live music and have lovely food! Will definitely be coming again. Shout out to the 'slow cooked ox cheek' and the 'caramel biscuit martini' cocktail - both out of this world!
5 Star food, service and music. We came on a Friday night around 8pm and were pleasantly surprised with how lively this little restaurant hidden in South Quay is. Live music and delicious food, all at a reasonable price, will definitely be returning very soon!
Jazzgir is like none other in Canary Wharf. They have this 'sharing concept' menu which is very similar to a Tapas approach. Also had the incredible 'Purple haze' cocktail which Dani the head mixologist suggested. A must visit in Canary Wharf!
Jazzgir is a truly unique spot in town - The food menu is hugely creative and can only be described as a sensory experience. With live music sets every week, and a beautiful view over the breathtaking South DQuay Dock in Canary Wharf, this is a must for anyone looking for a great evening and an unforgettable dining experience.
