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.
Great place must come back
Extremely loud and a whole party inside! You can’t even hear yourself talk. Not someplace you go to eat only to party. Horrible customer service! Won’t be back!
Amazing food Amazing experience
The business was closed
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.
Great food. Great drinks. Great music. Will be back!
Great food, friendly people!
Great food, fun ambiance, excellent hospitality. The live dj was on point!
We enjoyed the food, music, and service. The jerk chicken Mac & cheese and oxtails were my favorite but everything was really good.
The place was beautiful and the food was amazing. I’m definitely going back when I come back to LA
The food was really good ! It was fresh & made in a timely manner. Small little gem if your in the area you should definitely consider stopping by.
One of the best experiences while dining DT. From the quality of food, hospitality, ambiance, and music selection, it was an experience. I will be a repeat customer and can’t wait to share my newfound gem DT.
The curry was so bitter. I am not sure why the chef didn’t taste it.
The restaurant and food were very good. We were early.
Staff friendly and very hands on.
The food was not good.
A whole vibe, this place is so underrated! Was amazing and the food was fire as well.
Very attentive staff and their patties are freshly made. We also had the jerk chicken wings appetizer and they were spicy and delicious.
Amazing food and ambiance. Will definitely go back
First time we tried Jamaican food. Very good experience!
Such a great experience. The food was amazing and the service was superb.
The owner, Aja, is a treasure! She explained the menu with such excitement EYE got excited! I had the rum punch, festival, jerk surf and turf and I was not disappointed- on coming back soon! Believe that!
Food has a very good flavor and it reasonably priced but the jerk chicken was a bit over cooked and the rice under cooked. Pancakes were good, flavor just not my favorite
Staff was accomodating and attentive....Food was delicious and the DJ was awesome.
Asya, the hostess was courteus, witty and fun to talk to.
I highly recommend this experience.
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.
Food is amazing I will definitely be back for more.
Thanks for giving us a memorable valentines day at your location. We were late to our reservations but still were seated rather quickly and enjoyed great service and foos
Great love the environment
A cute quaint place to celebrate or do date night. My husband and I really enjoying ourselves, the oxtail and the rum punch!! There were a few small hiccups with our orders and the rice and peas were pretty much inedible but I think once they work out some of the kinks of reopening, it'll be great! We would definitely return in the future.
This is an amazing restaurant, the staff was so generous and we enjoyed our time plus the delicious food.
This is Jamaican food at its finest. Absolutely delicious. Get the jerk wings and you must try the dirty rice. I was craving more as soon as I left. The service was not great. I had a reservation but it really wasn’t necessary it seemed like. It seems like everyone is still getting trained or is new. The music is loud but enjoyable. Hopefully with more practice the staff gets the hang of service. They just seemed annoyed. Or at least one of them. Def put this on your list of places to try.
It was okay. Nothing to write home about. 14 for Rum punch. Ummm okay.
Wings were not very good ,, fish was nice ,, very prices for what it is
The Oxtail Ragu was life changing !!! The service was flawless. It was a cold evening and the patio was toasty, warm and inviting. The hostess even offered us blankets( nice touch)making me feel like I was a home. I will definitely be back!
Great Vibe, Great Food, will be back soon!
