I wanted to love this spot but I didn’t. Enjoyed the atmosphere and vibe of the restaurant but food was not good to me and definitely not Jamaican style like I know it. No real seasoning in the jerk chicken wings and they were dry. Mixed vegetables was just okay.

The Thanksgiving Experience was great! The hostess was cheery and seated us right away. The jerk shrimp salad was spicy and tasty and the shrimp were not overcooked. The pumpkin chicken soup was warm and flavorful. The macaroni and cheese actually tasted like real Mac n cheese. The jerk turkey was tender and spicy without being overwhelmed by the sauce. The dessert...2 types of cheesecake and a piece of apple pie. It was amazing! The entire meal was outstanding!!

We had four dishes and all 4 were superb! The chicken wings and waffles (pictured) were VERY spicy but tasty. The stewed chicken was indescribably delicious!! Ox tails were awesome also.

DJ was spinning soulful vibes at high volume inside - we sat outside so that we could talk. Welcoming and attentive Gaston showed us where to go on the menu: we loved the plantain chips and jerk sauce, jerk chicken, ackee and saltfish and wings+waffle. Only wish we had room for the patty trio - next time.

There was a moment where the food came out a little slow if you order a grill item. I’m Jamaican and i can tell you the beef patties were too tier. When I was leaving they accidentally took my plate with lobster still left on it. They made me a whole new one without having to ask for it.

Service was poor, waitress took far too long when taking our order. The food was a bit heavy on the spicy side and dry. Though it was all delicious and the drinks were decent. The prices however seemed unreasonably high for the quality of food and service. The ambiance was degraded by the playlist and the confused nature of this ‘kitchen.’ Like, what is it, a club, a sports bar, a fine dining spot? I don’t see relevance of listing on open table when guests can just walk in. Two of us were seated before a party of three and they were served well before us, as well as completing their meals before we did. The restaurant was not COVID compliant - nor did anyone even try to wear a mask - Just not a great experience and low value.

I didn’t like the service we waited forever for a appetizer the main course took forever because of what we ordered and when we got it the food wasn’t good at all the potatoes tasted like boxed potatoes the lamb wasn’t good it was to saucy and the lobster wasn’t cooked well. For 60 dollars I should have ate my whole plate.

I don’t think it was authentic Jamaican food. The Mac and cheese recipe was different than what I am used to. Needed something where the cheese sticks and sturdy. Not wet and sloppy. The veg rice was a bit spicy.
