NK was a very nice place. Where they are located doesn’t do them justice! Food was delicious service was extremely nice! The only thing we were not offered after our meal was dessert. Don’t get me wrong we were full. But might if liked something to go. Didn’t think about till we were leaving. But overall a very good restaurant. Will be eating there again VERY SOON!

Great restaurant, food, and service were excellent. The only thing I would say is it was a little on the dark side so reading the menu is difficult; a little more light is needed.

Nice outdoor set up and service was excellent. 4 items from the menu not available and the jerk chicken was nothing special. The crab cake appetizer and the lobster with mac and cheese were both very good. Will go back and try some other dishes.

Celebrating my anniversary with my husband at this wonderful restaurant. Food was phenomenal, drinks fantastic and staff were professional and friendly. Even though there was a power outage due to a bad car accident and power came back on before we left. The staff set the ambiance with candlelight dinners and constantly checked in to make sure all was well. We had a phenomenal time can’t wait to return again. Loved it

I’m not sure who is in charge of the menu or who the chef is, but it can’t be anyone who has even ever met someone that is Jamaican. Several things we asked for from the menu weren’t even available, so we had to settle for our 3rd option. The service was extremely slow & the bartender was borderline rude. We waited about 10 mins before we were even greeted then about another 15 before I even got my drink. The food was sub par at best. The drinks were the only thing about halfway decent. The music was so loud I could barely hear the people I was with who were right next to me. That didn’t bother me too much but my friend was extremely annoyed. Overall, if you want good Jamaican food, I wouldn’t recommend this place.

From the time you walk in your treated like royalty the hostess pulled out the chair for each and person in our group. The owner interacted with us and my 3 yr old. The food was great no issues I had the pork chops the flavor was there throughout each bite. My wife had the oxtails which was very tasteful.

Ambience and staff were welcoming and friendly. However my entree selection was misleading and disappointing for the price.
The owners was receptive to the feedback ( that they asked for). A complimentary appetizer or drink would have been a welcome gesture. I left hungry and disappointed after looking forward to visiting this establishment.

My party had a wonderful time. The atmosphere was nice. The only blip was that the music was a tad too loud to hold conversations without shouting. Even with that, we still had a good time. We'll be back for sure.

My husband and I went there to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary and we were pleasantly surprised. The ambiance was perfect, the food and drinks, very delicious. While it was obvious that our server Chris was new and in training, he was very attentive and was knowledgeable when asked a question. I have already recommended that people go there!

NK Restaurant always exceeds my expectations! The service is top notch and the staff is always friendly and attentive to your needs. Our server Chris was a sweetheart! They care about feedback. The food is always amazing. I was excited to see new menu options. It makes it so hard to choose. My go to is the Surf and Turf oxtail. My boyfriend had shrimp roti and curry goat! The drinks are out of this world! Try the rum punch and concord grape margarita!

Took my 80 yr old mom here. The music was so loud she wanted to leave. We did ask for the music to be turned down. The effort was poor. I convinced my mom to stay because I had dined here before and the food would make up for the loud music. She was pleased with her meal as was I. Unfortunately my mom won't return for fear of the music being too loud.
