The food was absolutely excellent. A delightful blend of jamaican, panamanian, and other central american cuisines. The service was wonderful. And their accomodations/adjustments for dine-in in the time of COVID were barely noticeable, meaning that the done in experience was lovely, but we were still well spaced and could tell extra precautions were in place.

First, the good: The food is absolutely amazing! The dish combinations are phenomenal and the spices and flavoring is fantastic. I 100% recommend the food. The service was also great. The bartender was excellent and was willing to make a drink and it wasn’t even on the menu. And the server Went out of her way to make a special accommodation for a request.

The bad: The music level was ridiculously and distractedly loud. You could barely hear yourself think, let alone have conversation without yelling. I love music and go to concerts all the time so I’m accustomed to loud music, but this is the loudest music I’ve ever heard in restaurant and it spoiled the whole experience. And the music was strange. It sounded like recorded jazz (which I love) being played with someone live playing a saxophone to the music and occasionally singing riffs using auto tune. Imagine T-Pain doing jazz. And then crank the volume to ear-bleeding levels. But good news!! I understand they only have that on Sundays!!! So I will definitely be going back — just not on a Sunday!

I enjoyed the bartender Taylor. She made me a great drink and she was very nice and sweet. She let us know to come back after giving us a short tour of the downstairs lounge! Me and my husband will definitely return for the great food and relaxed vibe.

Very friendly service but the food was not palatable. There’s no jerk flavor in the jerk.

We got there at 4:00 on the dot and the lady who served us did it quickly and courteously. She was wonderful and so was the food. We really enjoyed ourselves.

We did not get any service. Left to go elsewhere. We sat for 15 minutes ordered our drinks & never received them. When I went to the bartender asking where our drinks were she had no clue what I was saying & tells me that they were busier than expected & the kitchen was backed up but I think the servers were not interested in serving the people. Don’t seat people if you can’t handle the rush.

The staff was friendly upon entering the restaurant and it continued throughout our service for the evening. Our waitress Lisa did as excellent job with food recommendations and she was very accommodating. The flavor of the food was spot on and we will definitely be visiting again.

I enjoyed brunch the food was great!. It was a little wait for my guest meal to come to the table. I had eaten half my meal before my guest.
The only other issue was the ambience. I love that they had music, however it was very loud and hard to talk over. I love a more softer music setting for brunch. This was R and B with a jazz saxophone player who danced also. It had more of a lounge feel for night time.

I love this restaurant. The food is phenomenal. The service is great and it's a small but lovely space. I encourage everyone to give them a try. I will say however, that I am not impressed with the frozen drinks. In full disclosure, I don't like frozen drinks in general, but the group I was with ordered several and they too were disappointed in the taste. I ordered bourbon and it was fantastic! So if you aren't a drinker (as I am) don't look for too much in the frozen drink presentment. But it's a small glitch in a fantastic experience!

It was my first time there Friday night, the drinks where good but food was not at all what we expected. Came to see the live band play got there early for seating but the band was not there by 9 so we left. Maybe next time they will be more organized....
