Found out about this restaurant through IG, I anticipated certain foods I saw and got there the menu wasn’t anywhere close. The place was empty at 6pm so the food/service was fast we were out of there by 7! Now I booked for another date for a birthday celebration at 8:15 for THEM to cancel at 6:30 on a Friday! It’s on a secluded area inside of an apartment complex so it doesn’t get noticed. But to turn away the little business you do get isn’t fair nor smart.

We had reserved reservation at 6pm. We get there and we’re waiting and waiting and it wasn’t busy so we were not sure what the hold up was. Still waiting finally at 6:50pm someone came sat us down gave us some water and said they would be back with menus
We’re waiting we’re waiting and no one came at this point there was a group of ladies sitting a table over and we looked over and saw that they really didn’t touch their food my husband asked how’s the food they couldn’t tell us how awful it was now all this time were still waiting on menus. After speaking with the other table and the place was not busy and the service was just outright awful! I will never recommend a place where the service isn’t accommodating even if u made a reservation. Food can’t speak on other then the ladies in the next table but then again we didn’t even get that opportunity. We got up and left.

Short rib was under cooked. No one else was in the restaurant and the waitress lagged too much time.

Finding the restaurant was a little tricky as the location as to how to get in a little confusing but once in, great atmosphere. The music is lovely. The food is great but next time please have my food piping hot 🙂. Also, the place is BYOB so I wish I had known before I went but I know now so everything will be set for my next visit, especially since I was given a 10% discount for my next visit ❤. This place is a winner for me!!!

I took my boyfriend out for his birthday and Our waitress took long with absolutely everything from our appetizer to our bill. Never brought out our water that we asked for either, and then The waitresses and Customers started fist fighting because they took over an hour to bring out their food. Very ghetto. I definitely wouldn’t be going back.

The server was amazing. I ordered the shrimp and grits. The grits were cold and a bit too stiff. The garlic bread tasted a bit like it was microwaved and was too hard.

I came for a private wedding reception and decided to return as the food we had was so tasty. We came in for Crab Night and the crab/shrimp meal was sooo tasty and fresh! The music was on point too;Neo-Soul. While waiting on our meal it almost turned into a mini Karaoke night! Haha. I have zero complaints- clean restrooms, great atmosphere, great music, black owned business & the owners are great people! They just opened in January and are picking back up since COVID hit. Give them a try you won’t be upset!

Wasn't greeted when first came in.... we stood and waiting for 15 minutes to be seated it was a big tall guy walking back and forth never said someone will be with you shortly said nothing then another couple came in after us and the guy called them back it looked like they knew each other because they shook each other hands and the pat on the back but later we seen they came to look at a space I guess to rent out. I wouldn't go back the sweet potatoes was to sweet with too much cinnamon the greens was over cooked the salmon was over cooked the mac and cheese was over cooked and all the food was cold the only good thing was our waitress Khadihia (the muslim) lady her service was good but she was busy/overwhelmed with her tables and section it seem like she was the only waitress that night. No I would/we never go back!

My husband and I came out to have dinner. Of course we looked at the reviews prior to coming in but also kept in mind this is a new business. Boy are we glad we came!! We tried a little bit of everything for us to eat here and to go!! As we ate, we just kept adding more and more food!! Don’t judge me. Haha- we kept them busy!! The Wild Salmon & Shrimp Pasta, Rasta Pasta, Buffalo Wings, Cauliflower Bites, Mussels, Salmon Cheesesteak, Salmon Burger, Salmon Caesar Salad and a slice of cheesecake & carrot cake! The way the chef seasons the salmon is like no other!! Delicious!! The service staff is very nice, thoughtful & kind. Thank you again for making our date night so special and we were so happy supporting a black owned business! This is our new date spot!! Thank you!

PROS: We made reservations and were promptly seated at table. The restaurant was completely empty of customers. I loved the restaurants ambiance. They were playing some good music and the decor was nice. Our waitress was extremely nice and pleasant. I told the waitress it was my husbands birthday and she gave him a free slice of cheesecake which was really nice. I loved the Cajun fish and salmon

CONS: They only offer water, tea, and fruit lunch. GET the water. The tea and the fruit punch are gross. It tastes like bad kool-aid. The waitress said the restaurant is BYOB but no where on their website does it say BYOB. (Unless I missed it). Most restaurants give bread or something prior to the meal. They don’t give anything and also. Menu is super small. I had Mac and cheese and yams. Both were super bland . (Maybe due to covid) my husband ordered an extra side and it wasn’t on his plate. Because he didn’t really like his food we just decided not to remind the waitress about the extra side order. When the bill came we got charged for the extra side. I told the waitress and she apologized and said she would fix the bill. When she returned she said she took off a dollar because she gave him the cheesecake. I was totally confused. I’m like we didn’t ask for the cheesecake so why should I be charged for it. Instead of arguing about it and messing up my husbands bday dinner I just deducted it from her TIP.

I’m not sure if I will try this restaurant again. Maybe after covid is over they will have more options.
They also can’t give customers a treat and then decide they want to bill for it. The cheesecake tasted like it was gel a supermarket and very small. I gave them 4 stars because I did think the waitress was nice and they are black owned plus their dealing with covid so would like to give them the benefit of the doubt and hope that their small issues will be corrected soon.
