African
Primo African Quisine located next to Jack Casino Downtown serves authentic and cultural dishes mainly from West Africa. The generous portions of lamb, goat and chicken as well as fresh fish such as whole red snapper, put with our traditional plate of fufu and egussi soup made all from scratch take you straight to an exclusive safari to the mother land. The freshest ingredients, used in our cocktails and the afrobeats notes show the love and the welcoming ambiance we provide for family and friends.

    Do not book a reservation at this restaurant as it is out of business. How can OpenTable make a reservation for a restaurant that is not even open? We had theater tickets that night and had to find another restaurant before the show which was not easy.

    The entire place was empty when we were there which was odd. The food was fantastic. Service was a bit slow but overall we were happy.

    I came here with my best friend for dinner and had a great experience. There was only one server and she did a great job managing 3 tables plus some people at the bar. The food was wonderful. I loved the lamb chops and the pepper stew was very good. Plenty of Fufu! Great portion sizes. The drinks were also good and very picturesque. The Impress Me cocktail was very good and definitely looks great on live. I’ll be back it was fun. There was even a little dance floor

    My daughter and I are foodies so dine out often. My close friends are African and have ate many authentic African dishes and always a positive experience. My daughter was served cold lamb stew on a 35 degree night. My food tasted frozen then microwaved. My glass of wine was old, spoiled. I literally took one sip and did not touch the glass the server was nice enough but said sorry have to charge you. I was charged $14 for a horrible glass of wine that In didn’t drink. I was charged $28 for cold land stew for my child. I was required to pay 20% gratuity for a party of two one adult one child. I heard the owner was present never v walked the tables only engaged with staff and one woman at C bar. Very disappointed. Do not plan to dine again. My daughter had been asking for African cuisine even the creme brûlée disappointing. I paid full price for all but not happy about it.

    I was excited to find this restaurant when I was doing a staycation in downtown Cleveland. The food and drinks were great. The service was really lacking. It took forever to order the waitress messed up orders and drinks. But the food was so great. I highly recommend it 715 730.

    We had reservations at 6 that there maybe 20 minutes before our time. We waited almost a half and hour for our food to come out. The drink that I had was good. The food came out warm almost cold. And the food was just nasty. I tired it once and that was enough for me. I will never be coming to this place again. There music list was jamming and it wasn’t even packed in here when we went so I don’t know why we had to wait that long for our food to come out.

    Sorry to hear that your had a bad experience in our establishment and we can ensure the food do not usually take long. However, we do play some afrobeats which is a pretty energetic music. Please give us another try !!

    The lemon drop was delicious. The meals were bland, not flavorful and did not allow substitutions. Service slow and there was only 10 people inside .

    Waited 30 mins before even getting a water or serviced when I had a reservation and was forgotten. Then another 30 mins for the appetizer , The business wasn’t even busy enough to be that slow. I went at 8 and didn’t leave until 10:30.

    Hello TiannaC, We sincerely do apologize for this frustrated reservation confusion on Valentine's Day and we can ensure you that it will not happen again. Hope to see you again.
