Diner Reviews
  • "We were visiting from Boston and came here with my husband and son because we haven't had a real authentic Jamaican food experience. All the reviews said it was great so though we'd try it. We eat out a lot and are foodies. Since we both travel for a living we've experienced great food everywhere and have very high standards. We were all so pleasantly surprised! Everything was made to order and very fresh. I had the OX tail stew and it was very tender and flavourful. Husband had Jerk chicken - very impressed that they kept it moist and juicy. Son had the shrimp very tasty with lots of great savory spices! People were very personable and the service was great too! We are coming back again for another meal as soon we come back to FL!"

  • "We enjoyed our visit here. The service was fantastic. Our table was ready and the food was perfect. We certainly will go here again. I would absolutely recommend a visit! I just hate that we had not found this earlier!"

  • "Friendly staff. Tasty food. Nice atmosphere. Carribean/Raggae music in the background was just the right volume - not overpowering. The specials were a bit pricey. The bread pudding is a great dessert but only sometimes available."

  • "We have tried both Rocksteady Cafe and Bistro and both times the food has been excellent. It brought back many wonderful memories of our trips to Jamaica and the delicious food we had there. We are from Ohio but you can be sure we will be back next year to try more Brown stewed chicken, Escovich Snapper, or maybe try something different! Oh and the coco bread is so yummy! Our waitress was wonderful and spent time talking to us about Jamaica. If you like to try different types of food then you need to check Rocksteady out. We were there on a Thursday so it was quiet and not real busy."

  • "the jerk chicken was delicious. Tried the crab fritter and was not really fond of that. It was more like a crab cake and not too tasty. My fiancé had the shrimp curry which was good. Will go back for the jerk chicken!"

  • "Excellent food. Every dish we had was very tasty made with fresh ingredients. I will certainly dine there again. Parking can be a challenge, but don't let that discourage you..."

  • "The food was good we love island food Jamaican especially and it was tasty. Decent beer selection. No Rum so don't expect liquor. The main issue I had was there were several menus not available like coffee. Macaroni and cheese for my 11 year old. . Which just happened to be some of the items we were looking for. I would list this as good for 16+ not super kid friendly. Service was good no issues there at all. I will probably give it another shot."

  • "This is the best kept secret in south Florida. Chef Morgan is using only local and fresh meat and produce. And the results are simply awesome. Curry chicken. Jerk anything. And the shrimp rundown is amazing, a must try."

  • "Great place to grab something different. The restaurant was uncomfortably warm. I would have had a better experience otherwise. Spicy food and too warn inside is not a good combo."

  • "Trying to find a place for dinner on a Saturday night I always go to Open Table for ideas. When I saw this restaurant and great reviews I was delighted. Finally a great authentic ethnic restaurant in Boca. There are about 40 seats and the atmosphere is great. If you are tired of going out and everyplace has the same thing on the menu and no value this place is a must. Can't wait to go back. First timers must get the sampler platter as a starter. Support this local place nd expand your palate."

  • "Delicious Jamaican food. Lovely couple who own the restaurant. Service is slow because the owners do everything with help in the kitchen. Very sweet owners. Go when you are not in a hurry and just have patience."

  • "The restaurant was Great! I took my husband here for his birthday and he loved it! He's from jamaica and its hard to find true jamaican restaurants with a romantic flare for adults. I loved the staff they greated us by name and had a table reserved for us before we got there. Overral the food was great and so were the owners. Will be coming back!!"

  • "We went there for my sisters birthday and I must say the service was impeccable, top notch service! The place is small but decorated very beautifully! The Bob market music playing in the background couldn't have been better for the mood. Very extensive menu which was great a lot to choose from, not like other Jamaican restaurants I've been too where you have maybe five options! Once our food came I thought I was in heaven!! The food was beyond what I thought I would have tasted!! It was soooo good!!! Great spices not too over bearing, rice was very lite and wonderful! And the coco bread is to die for! The owner of the restaurant came out and introduced himself! Very nice!"

  • "Great little place. Very comfortable bistro atmosphere, excellent food (plenty of heat if you ask for it, none if you don't want it). Authentic jerk chicken, oxtail and goat curry, and innovative fish dishes, all reasonably priced."
