This was the perfect meal experience from start to finish, no burps, greeter sat after 15 minute wait for place that was 1/3 filled, but rest of experience more than made for it, Ryan the server was very funny, professional, loves to chat, took order correctly, & drink with meal was great, price was good to boot, will stop when back in town, thanks.

I’ve been to this location more than once. And each time I have gotten AMAZING service!!! However, last night was a different story. My server didn’t seem like she wanted to be at work at all. She barley came back to the table! We ordered 5 appetizers and only 4 came out. She didn’t came back to the table until it was time to clear plates. And when she came back she didn’t even notice until later that one of the appetizer was missing.

Then to add injury to insult, my friend ordered a medium well steak. Anytime I’ve ordered a stream in the past the server will come to the table to insure that you steak was cooked to your liking. Again, didn’t see she until we were halfway through our food. At that point the we were annoyed and just wanted to go home. The manager tried to fix it but she wasn’t much help either.

We understand that Saturday is a busy day for a restaurant. We didn’t mind the wait and we knew that our server would be busy. But, If you are overwhelmed you should be able to go to either teammate or you manger and ask for assistance. Especially if they double sat your section.

My experience at Bahama Breeze was okay. I had to send back my food twice because I don't eat meat and they bring my food with bacon. I send it back and it seem like they pick the bacon from the plate because I still had pieces of bacon in my plate when they return. This was very disappointing.

Our servor, Dennysis, was very cordial and handled my party of 10 with a very professional manner. He was able to ensure our drinks, appetizers, and entrees were delivered in a prompt manner. I hope to have him again on our next visit.

Great place for drinks and good deals if you go at happy hour times especially. However, food was edible but not great. The salmon had a fishy taste to it which should not be if it was fresh. The jerk chicken was dry and not enough seasoning. You didn’t even know it was jerk seasoned. Food was very poor and we had beef empanadas. Horrible, it’s like beef stew in a pocket. Makes a mess, is so hot inside and watery that it burns you and spills everywhere. That’s not how you get them in Puerto Rico at any place. I would know. I would never order those again. Table behind us ordered them and said the same thing and sent them back.

Overall we had a good experience, but mainly because of past reviews.

They really don't understand the definition of reservations. They consider it as you getting on a priority list instead of actually reserving your table. To help with this, we got there about 20 mins early and checked in, then hung out at the bar until they called us.

The Food was good. I got the Curry Goat bowl with a salad, but the salad somehow came out after the Curry Goat bowl.

It gets super crowded on Saturday's to, so be ready to wait if you don't have a reservation. Your whole party has to be there in order to be seated as well.

I made a reservation for 4. I was told you have to have all parties there to be seated. My party showed up on time but we still waited about 10 minutes to be seated. We were seated right near the lobby so many patrons were essentially standing right over us while we dined. It was very busy, so it was noisy, but died down after about an hour or so. My aunt's chair was wobbly and she asked for another. Our waitress, Selina, said she would "try" to find another one, but my aunt was able to grab an extra chair from the neighbor table. I ordered two coconut mojitos, which were delicious. I then ordered a Painkiller. It was way too strong, I sent it back and was not charged. Selina was very nice, friendly, and attentive, aside from the chair issue. The food was very good. I enjoyed the dining experience overall.

The food was good but our experience with the server regarding our drinks from the bar pretty much ruined the whole experience for us. They were packed with ice, missing garnishes and our server was just downright rude. When we requested correction we were told that’s the way they’re made and she walked away.

The whole evening was a disappointment because of the service.

I love this place. However, this reservation was not a good experience. Reservation was made for 7:30pm - we were seated after 8pm. Not the usual attentive service received on prior visits. Our Server, Eboni, did not bring us silverware - we couldn't find her so we ventured to the front of the restaurant to get 8 sets of silverware. Asked for napkins and we received 3 small square water napkins. Returning to the table for fill ups or to ask if we were doing okay were far and few between. The food and drinks were amazing as usual - hats off to the amazing Chef :)

Delicious food in a surprising setting, next to a big mall. The selections were prepared well and Terrell gave us excellent customer service.

We were there for the first time with a friend and ate in an unhurried fashion.

We would definitely go again.

Great food and service with nice island atmosphere. The Beef Empanadas appetizer is awesome.
They made a terrific Cobb salad despite the current romaine lettuce ecoli restrictions/recall.
My bride loves their salmon.
