Food was excellent as usual; however they continue to have a problem with maintaining an order in terms of delivering tables on time. This time the wait was 15 minutes but the other times it was almost an hour. The group next to my table had a 8:00 p.m. reservation and did not get seated until my party was seated at 10:00 p.m.
Also, need to make sure that they have enough menu items throughout the day, like cocoa bread wich is a favorite of many patrons. Also, the escovitch (red snapper).

Went for Sunday brunch and the food was excellent. A variety of items can be sampled from the menu. Noise level was great, didn't have to shout to talk to others in my group. Limited seating was also great so don't have to worry about huge crowds.

island away from the islands
The food and service here is great. It feels a bit cramp but it just forces you to. Make nice with your neighbors. The music was great. Will definitely be heading back to this place for some more great times.

Food was very good as usual, but our cornbread didn't show until we already had our leftovers boxed up. I explained that we were done with dinner, and the waitress rudely took the cornbread back, then explained to my husband when giving the bill that she took off the cornbread "that she decided she didn't want". No....I didn't want it because we were just about to put on our coats. It shouldn't take 20 minutes to give us cornbread that's already baked, and just needs to be cut up. The attitude from the waitress ruined an otherwise fun experience.

The food was awesome! But the place was way too small for a birthday celebration. Next time I go, it probably will only be for a romantic date. The servers were great and very patient..I appreciate the servers for accommodating such a large group!

The food was amazing but the service was kind of slow. It was also very loud, probably because there are so many tables crammed in there.
All in all, the food was amazing. Authentic and delicious.

Fun with Colleagues
Was looking for a reasonably priced, geographically convenient, restaurant for dining with business colleagues. Ja' Grill hit the spot! Food was unbelievably fantastic and authentic...We all felt we were in the islands! Gotta do this again soon!

What else can I say that I haven't about this place before. SImply amazing, it is the best Jamaican restaurant in the city. This place is a must try, everything is always great from the drinks to the apps to main dish. Have had pretty much everything on the menu with the exception of catfish as I do not eat fish, but everything else is always spot on and I can guarantee I will not be disappointed with anything here

Good food - Strong drinks
Ja' Grill has great food and their drinks are amazing! Make sure you have reservations for large groups, as it has a quaint but cozy atmosphere.

The food is phenomenal. I love the laid back atmosphere. They do have a DJ that plays an excellent mix of music as well. The Curry Shrimp & Brown Stew Chicken are 2 of my favorites. The drinks are on point as well.

Good Eats with a Caribbean Flare!
Sunday evening and my family was eager for something über tasty. We decided on this neighborhood gem. The lamb chops were divine and the cornbread was more like cake. The shrimp curry was a burst of flavor. I'm not the biggest fan of the rice and beans, but my friend encouraged me to pour some gravy from the chicken stew over the rice. Lets just say, this was the perfect combination. The cabbage was seasoned just right. Add the sweet plantains in and my taste buds were treated to a culinary excursion. Music and friendly faces. Great service and delicious food at pocket friendly prices. This combination could make for a good dining experience any night of the week.

The food was very good. Our server recommended dishes that we liked. However, she did not tell us that there were specials, and took a looong time to check on us, see if we wanted dessert, and bring/take our bill. It appeared she was the only waitress, so if that is the case, and not a usual occurrence, it is certainly understandable. We will be back.

I love Caribbean food which is why I went...I was very surprised at how good the food was. If you like spicy those spicy shrimp are a perfect appetizer. The Curry goat was me & my husbands favorite but everything was good!

Delicious and Relaxing
If you are looking for some amazing and authentic Jamaican food, and you want to do it in a relaxed and friendly environment, Ja'Grill is the place to go. The reggae tunes are playing while super-friendly staff takes care of you, and the food is comforting and lovingly-made. My boyfriend and I love this place and always recommend it to friends!

Always Amazing - Yummy!
The FOOD is AMAZING! Service a bit slow, but not so much that we won't keep going! :) just go when you have plenty time to chill and eat great food!

An Irie time for all
This is the best Jamaican food we have eaten outside of Jamaica. There is something for everyone (meat, vegetarian) and everything was delicious!

I've been to Ja'Grill several times now and every time the food is consistently great. Wait staff is friendly and ambience is rather cool and daring. Just word to the wise--make a reservation on the weekends for dinner! The space is rather quaint and if you aren't booked in advance it can be a very long wait BUT that's just the sign of a really great, really popular place! If you're on the fence, do it! You won't be disappointed.

I love Ja Grill!!
I love this place! If I lived closer I would eat there more often. The service is tremendous and the food is GREAT. (How about opening one in the south suburbs?)

Ja' Grill is a favorite
My wife and I have been here twice now. It has quickly become one of our favorite places in the city.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
The service was prompt and friendly but they weren't in a rush to get us out after we were done, the ambiance was relaxed with a live DJ pumping dance hall rhythms, and the food was flavorful and spicy. The prices are also very reasonable.

This restaurant is Great!! The food is always very tasty, well presented, & the staff is terrific. It makes me feel I am back in Jamaica!! Which is my favorite destination. Oh! The music goes right along with the vibe of the restaurant & the Rum Punch..... A Must!! Do not hesitate in making your reservations.
