Upon arriving for our reservations we waited at least 30 minutes to be seated although the restaurant was barely busy. The bartenders were attentive and immediately offered beverages. We had to ask several times about being seated, eventually, we were told that they were printing our menus- we had a birthday so that add that person's name to the menu. Once seated we waited again to receive our waiter, which we requested several times. Numerous staff were just floating around, unclear what their specific duties were. Our waiter came with warm rags which was a nice touch and was attentive thevremainder if the meal. The menu seems unfocused, it is unclear the restaurants cuisine type: Jamaican, Latin, Asian, Haitian? They should narrow their focus and expand side options. There were multiple menus. They should streamline into one cohesive menu. I had the lobster with Mac cheese. The menu said with jerk butter, it was no longer prepared as such and I had to request separately. The cheese seems to have ran away from the Mac as it was virtually absent. Not worth $48. Most of my table's plates remained partially uneaten. Doubt we will return. This place has potential. Owner should seek a restaurant consultant to strengthen operations, quality, and pricing.

I've been to this restaurant a few times and THEY NEVER DISAPPOINT! I tried one of their vegan dishes for the first time. The brown stew mushrooms with rice and peas and it was amazing . My nephew had the jerk ribeye and the steak was cooked to perfection. NK Never disappoints whether it's lunch, brunch or dinner! Great Food and Great vibes !

My husband made reservations for my birthday. We were seating as soon as we arrived. Due to Covid the other patrons along with ourselves were separated by partitions, which was great. Our waiters were friendly and brought out our drinks promptly. We ordered the crab cake as an appetizer. It was AMAZING. I could tell that it was definitely fresh, along with the mango salsa. Our entrees were TO DIE FOR!!!! I chose the Oxtail Surf n Turf, while my husband had the jerk chicken. I was not disappointed. I will definitely be visiting more often. I can tell that the vibe would be amazing for the summer.

I highly recommend Nuvo Kitchen. It gives what’s it’s supposed to be giving!!!

Went for the 1st time for dinner on a Saturday night. We got seated immediately because of our reservation. However, no one came over to take our drink order for about 20 min. My friend got a waiter attention and we explained the situation. He tried to find us a waiter, but eventually took our order for food and drinks himself. Besides this hiccup, the food and drinks were delicious and tasty! Portions were big, especially the crab cake. I had the Oxtail stuffed mushroom, and Tostones. My friend and I shared the calamari. My friend's food was delicious as well. Music was good, but I was hoping they had a dj on a Saturday night. Overall, good experience and I'd definitely go back again.

The ambience was nice, fairly quiet for a Thursday night. The food was good, not over or underserved portions. Tasty, and nice presentation but the pricing was way out of range for both drinks and food. If the food had been spectacular, it may have been worth it. The drinks were extremely overpriced and might have been expected at a Manhattan restaurant. Overall experience was just ok, not a good value. Would recommend to a friend if they are far away from Caribbean cuisine location-wise, which may be why this venue is over the top pricey.

The reservations and the wonderful greeting from the hostess was enough to make me like NK. Just pulling into the driveway I was in awe of the outside decor. Inside was just as beautiful and the music was perfect for dining. My guests were very pleased as they celebrated their birthdays and the food/drinks were amazing. We will definitely come back again.

The food was good but a little too spicy for me. I was told by the owner that the entree, Brown Stewed Mushrooms, wasn’t spicy like most items on the menu, but it was. That was after the very spicy shrimp roti appetizer. Some folks, like myself, want our food seasoned NOT spicy. Jamaicans can cook without spice…can’t they?

No one absolutly no one is wearing a mask in this place (from the waiter, to the cooks) They don't control your vax status to dine indoor either.
Expect the distance between the tables 👍🏾 this place is acting like if the covid doesn't exist anymore. Very good for cluster.
The food is very basic, but the dj and the service are very good.
We will not come back, 1 for the absence of safety measures and 2 the food.
Oh the bottomless mimosa is great quality.

I loved it. They bring fresh warm towel for you to wipe your hands before dinner. The host Jenny was nice and attentive. The owner Snead was great, very much involved with his restaurant, came and check on us if we were good, went and check on our food when it wasn't there in a timely fashion. Definitely will go again.
