    1st time. Jerk Shrimp App comes in a soup of liquid and was really over cooked but had decent flavor. Comes with an entire loaf of Cuban bread. Empanadas were delicious. I ordered Jerk shrimp pasta without the veggies and was delivered fully loaded. Replacement received almost immediately but the Shrimp looked boiled and had no seasoning. The 3rd attempt was amazing.

    Fantastic first experience. The music was delightful and almost enough to get us out of our seats for some dancing, although only slightly loud to enjoy dinner conversation and overpowered us a couple of times. The food was quite fresh, innovative, and a nice change from run of the mill eateries. Would love to see a few gluten free options as appetizers for those of us unable to choose from the regular menu. That aside, we will be returning for another refreshing experience with the family next time we visit Gainesville. Bien!

    We had a party of 6 for a dinner after college graduation. Hostess was very nice when I called with a question the day before. Service was friendly and prompt with our needs. Food was great and fairly priced. Fresh fruity drinks were enjoyed all around the table with appetizers! We had a fantastic time! Thanks!!

    The restaurant was 75% empty and we were celebrating my daughter’s college graduation and we were put next to the bathrooms, we asked to move and they just said “no”. One of the burgers we ordered came without the bacon- my daughter’s salad was missing all the toppings- I had to ask for my Diet Coke I ordered 3 times- and my pasta was clearly not drained because it was swimming in water. It was not good. The whole experience was pretty terrible. I didn’t want to ruin her night but I was in tears on the way back to the hotel. It was dismal and depressing and no one who worked there cared.

    My friend received great service from the server. I was blatantly ignored, so my friend had to do all the talking for me because our server didn’t acknowledge I was there since he was so interested in her. Wouldn’t have been a problem if he would’ve at least taken my order without her having to tell him to. Weird.

    Our experience two days prior brought us back again. This time we noticed many tables needing bussing. Husband had to ask for a glass for his bottle of beer. The salmon continues to be a standout.

    Dinner with the family turned ok good - not great. Service was good. Food ok although slightly much on the pricing. Could be due to the supply shortages / increasing costs. All in all, decent restaurant.

    Chain restaurant with island concept. Good not great food, chose this as all local restaurants were booked for football weekend. Handled our crowd of 8 easily which was nice. It is a good option if you have young and old as everyone can find something they want. Nothing special about this concept restaurant but it was decent.
