I'm giving 4 stars ONLY FOR THE BARTENDER/waiter.. he was very professional, knowledgeable, courteous and funny... he made sure to check on us in a timely fashion which I admire because that's what my company is all about and that's what I try to teach my employees.. so to get service like this is WONDERFUL..... he had short dreads, the kindest face and walked around with a smile... I wish I could remember his name but it was my birthday and I was gone with the wind 🙃.. I ordered something with Shrimp risotto and crab meat.. need a bit more flavor but the jerk kabob appetizers were delicious!!!. Place is a bit pricey but it was a special occasion I wouldn't go back based on the food.. but I would go back to grab a drink cause of the bartender/ waiter very friendly
I used their online service to order food for pickup. My order was placed at 5:34pm (give it take 5 minutes). It is now 6:45pm and my food is still not ready. Poor service. James was able to get the issue fixed. The atmosphere is great and food is delicious but the online order system needs work!
Excellent service, drinks and food! I had salmon, 🥦 and rice..The zucchini bread is to die for. My sister enjoyed catfish, mac n cheese and spinach.I had a peach martini..excellent.Service was top notch. CLEAN bathrooms!
The food has always been good. The service has gotten progressively worse over the years. If you decide to go ask for Abigail. She's attentive but not overbearing.
They are a lil pricey in comparison to other restaurant lounges. I go there for a quick appetizer or drink here and there. It attracts a sophisticated middle aged crowd. It’s a Haitian owned restaurant but with a soul food flare. Their jerk chicken wings are really good! With this special green sauce that goes with it is so goooood! I’ve also had their calamari which is very tasty. Only thing that wasn’t tasty was the Mac n Cheese. They should consider offering the traditional Haitian Mac n Cheese instead. (Just a suggestion) I’m not crazy about the signature cocktails either. I’ve had a few different martini’s and I just don’t always like the tastes. The liquors they mix together don’t always compliment each other. Maybe they can make some remixes to their cocktail blends. The service is regular but it could be better. Takes too long for someone to circle back and check on me or ask if I need anything. Other than that, it’s a pretty good spot for some food, drinks, and cool ambiance.
