What a hidden gem! This place is so laid back and relaxed. Very cozy, with the most incredible food! The cauliflower is to die for, and the yucca was amazing. I’d go back everyday !

Mother’s Day Bruch, my entree arrived before hers, upon the waiter asking us if everything was to our liking we had to
Ask for her entree. Then they brought the wrong dish, the waiter questioned me telling him it was wrong and said he could have sworn we said kimchi fried rice for breakfast. Then he said he would get her the shakshuka, I had to tell him to return both orders to the kitchen and remake them so they arrive at the same time, then I also had to suggest that we will have two drinks while we wait, which we also paid for. Then when the food came out the eggs in both dishes were over cooked. Shakshuka and chiliquiles should have eggs with runny yokes not hard. Followed by end the end after paying the total bill with nothing taken off nor offered for free I ordered another drink for her which I had to grease him $20 for.

Some hits, lots of misses. Kinda pricey: e.g. $35 (MP) for small piece of mahi-mahi, but that's probably par for the area.

I had been looking forward to this restaurant all week, but what an utter disappointment! The service was atrocious, and our server was training someone! That does not bode well. The food came out very fast and all at once and was not good at all. We are total foodies, but this was a horrible experience! The server never checked on us, our entire meal was served within 15 minutes of sitting down, and our drinks finally came about 25 minutes in. We had expected a leisurely, delicious meal, but instead were done in about 35 minutes. We didn’t dare try dessert for fear of being further disappointed. The best part of the evening was the walk back to the hotel!

SAVE YOUR TIME, DO NOT VISIT THIS RESTAURANT.

Not sure how this place stays in business. As a hospitality professional, the service was outright unacceptable.

Our server was incredibly rude. He never introduced himself, he came to the table once to take our order and when we asked for another minute, he never returned. He was literally dodging our table, so there was no way to even get his attention. No one else seemed to be working besides him??? It’s now been an hour and we didn’t even get our drink order.

Finally the manager came over, but never introduced herself as so. She took our drink and food order but never apologized for any delay. At 1.5 hrs we finally got 1 app, then minutes later drinks, then the other app. The mushrooms were over salted and inedible and the cauliflower was under seasoned - it was literally just boiled cauliflower. And the prices they have the audacity to charge?!

I have never wanted to walk out at a restaurant, but I have never been so disgusted with an experience. We met the host at the front and she’s the only one who was polite and understanding, she apologized and said to not worry about the bill. Our initial server, came up running to us screaming at us to “put our masks on when talking to my staff” EXCUSE ME?! you’re kidding right. First you run and then you’re screaming at patrons? I was dumbfounded and that was it for me.

I asked to speak with the manager and was shocked to see it was the lady who came to take our order; clearly she didn’t care about upholding any quality of service. She met me with zero emotion or compassion and an empty apology.

The menu seems as if it doesn’t want to confirm to a certain style. In each of the dishes we ate, there was something just unusual about their creation. For example, jerk chicken on a bed of hummus. The chicken was great but a Warm meat on top of hummus was weird. The crispy pork appetizer had a delicious spicy slaw but also included plantain tostones. The tostones made no sense in the dish. The short ribs included pickles, a pickled relish and then...cauliflower. Perhaps others know the vibe they’re trying to accomplish but we did not. Perhaps they should be celebrated for taking risks in their creation of dishes, but they could do much better. The location is great and the ambiance of The space demand something a bit better for the price.

The food was very tasty, the ambiance and service was fantastic. I thought the fish of the day dish was a bit pricey at $36 and a very small glass of rose was $14, I believe. Just a little over priced. Love the hotel and the look of things very much.

I previously came here in 2019 (Pre Covid, obviously) and had a great experience. Food was fantastic and memorable and service was top notch.

Unfortunately, my last visit did not live up to that standard. My husband and I ordered four apps to share and several drinks. One of the items literally tasted like nothing -- I think it was the short rib but i honestly can't even remember because it was so bland. The shrimp dumplings were pretty good but nothing incredible. We did enjoy the mushrooms -- that was the most stand out item we ordered.

We planned to order two entrees but were just feeling 'eh' about the entire experience and decided to skip to dessert. Both of the items we were interested in were not available which was super disappointing.

service was pretty good. My one concern is that the tables in the back were pretty close together given current circumstances.

We arrived early and had deinks at Broken Shaker (i didnt realise you had to reserve). We managed to get a table in their lovely garden cocktails are Amazing!! We had dinner at 27 which was delicious so fresh it was great to see their vegetable garden in the grounds. Food is innovative fresh and tasty. Organic wines do not give you a hangover 👏. Loved the place!!

They started out strong but it was a slow steady slide from there on. Incredible setting and music selection. Our cocktails were amazing and our waiter was engaging and enthusiastic.

Our first dish with pork and plantains was out of this world and set up our hopes for more.

The second, cauliflower with curry, labne and pomegranate seeds was interesting but honestly, the flavors were so strong that you could hardly tell you were eating cauliflower.

Last, we opted for the whole fish selection and neglected to ask what the market price was. Well, what came out was a whole snapper which had been cut into chunks and been heavily breaded and deep fried. It was literally fish sticks. And it cost $75. Total let down.

And then our waiter disappeared for 30min. Getting the check was a hassle. Needless to say, we didn't opt for dessert. Might be worth a try, but I’d stick to the drinks and small plates.

We are in the area for the week and decided to give 27 a try after reading mostly positive reviews. We both enjoyed a lemon based cocktail which was delicious, falafel, and mussels for the entree. The cocktails and food were great. Giving 3 stars because our dessert was forgotten and the server neglected to check back after courses to ensure that we had everything we needed. We were disappointed due to the lack of good service we expected to come along with this price point and good reviews.

Disappointing. Made a reservation at 27 for 2 via Open Table, nowhere given the chance/ choice, for selecting an outdoor table. Arrived at 7:30 pm on time, with 4 empty tables outside, we were not allowed to use any, even after repeated request. “The are all reserved”. Two outside tables available at 9 pm when we left.
The whole fried fish we were offered, was not available.
Having a nice conversation with my friend, waiter kept visiting the table in an annoying manner, almost inviting us to leave.
