Diner Reviews
  • "I've yet to have a bad experience here. The food is so good it's a shame they don't put more money in advertising. I had the scallops & pork belly app, sea bass entree and blue berry shortcake dessert. All were cooked and seasoned perfectly. I highly recommend this place if you're a foodie!"

  • "We will definitely return! We were there as a family so we appreciated that the service was very gracious and attentive without being cloying. Having a small menu pays off. Each dish; apps, salads, entrees arrived just as expected. The live music wasn't the best but I think they were just warming up as we were finishing."

  • "We went early on Saturday evening. Very nice casual space with a pool table. I had Cesar salad and crispy sea bass. Both were excellent. Noise level was moderate allowing for conversation. Good quality, moderately priced list of wines by the glass. Good service. We will go back."

  • "The 9th Note had just the right vibe. The jazz quartet and the delicious food made for a winning combination. I would definitely recommend this music and food venue!"

  • "My boyfriend and I were pleasantly surprised by our delicious meal and the great atmosphere at 9th Note. The food was great, yet reasonably priced and the wine list was solid. It was great to be able to enjoy a romantic evening of jazz while we dined and cap it off with a game of pool! We'll definitely be back!"

  • "The food and service was great. Very attentive waitstaff and a strawberry shortcake with fresh whipped cream make the experience more than worth the modest prices. When the live jazz band started playing, you almost have to scream at the person across from you. "

  • "9th Note seems to be a fitting new addition to the Ninth Square neighborhood. Dining room/bar is a large open space, with a pool table, and mural by a local artist. Good combination of restaurant and jazz venue, although the live music was too loud. We were having an early dinner so the band started halfway through our meal, and after that we could barely hear each other speak. Food: ricotta/olive tapenade appetizer was nice; apple cider short ribs were very good, exceeded expectations; lamb pappardelle looked great but was lacking flavor (ie salt); same for lobster Mac and cheese -- there was plenty of lobster meat but the mac and cheese had no (cheese) flavor -- and there's no point in making this combination unless you do both well."

  • "We had some pleasant surprises at the 9th Note the other night. We'd made a reservation at this brand new restaurant/jazz club for an evening of drinks, dinner and jazz to celebrate a birthday. We had cocktails around the corner, then went to 9th Note for a very well served, pleasant dinner and listened to some solid jazz, something increasingly difficult to find in Connecticut. The room is pretty and not jammed, the service was perfect, the food quite good and the overall experience was definitely worth repeating."

  • "Review the list for dinner options in New haven and the 9th Note popped up as a new option. Great place, played some pool before dinner and loved the live music. I know it will get busier as more people discover the place, so go there now. We will definitely b back."
