My appetizer came out after my main dish and my main dish (shrimp and grits) was a very small portion and not so tasty. The service was impeccable! I had a great waiter! He was very attentive and professional. Drinks were good.

I came in with my family to celebrate my birthday and the staff were just wonderful. They took care of us incredibly even when a small error happened with one of our orders they were apologetic and immediately offered to have it changed. That’s service. I’m so pleased with my experience. Jean and the bartender with the dreads that I didn’t get the name of THANK YOU!!!

I made the booking for my family who went for a light dinner and had an amazing time. It was a rainy day but they were still able to dine outdoors (with their puppy). They were very pleased with the service... They raved about the cocktails. Good job Savvy!

The only decent things about this experience was the water (when we finally received cups to drink it after reminding the waitress twice) and the bus boy, who the most attentive. Our waitress would go and sit down to chat with her coworkers every time she left our table, which meant we had to flag her down every time we needed something. The restaurant was not busy, so she didn’t have too many tables that would have kept her busy or overworked; she was clearly there to socialize. They had a 2 for the price of one drink deal and I got mango mimosas. They were both room temperature and when I ordered another and asked if it could be cold, the waitress told me she had to ask the bartender. When I got it, there was one piece of ice floating on the top. My friend ordered the lobster roll and wasn’t very satisfied and asked for something else. They told her no, they don’t replace food (even though she didn’t eat it) and offered her the appetizer she had already had a 2nd time. When we were ready for the check, we of course, had to flag the waitress down again because she was sitting down, talking to her work friends. We split the bill and the (generous) tip was on the credit card and the cash portion wasn’t exact and change was needed. The waitress had not returned with the $6 change and my sister had to go and ask her for it. She turned and picked the envelope up from the table she was sitting at and handed her the change. I’m not sure why she would assume that the change was for her in addition to the tip that was already left for her. Overall, this was a horrible experience and I’m disappointed more so because this was my birthday dinner. 0/10 would not recommend.

Service was horrendous. There were several things wrong, but getting the water orders correct in the beginning should not have been one of them. It was downhill from there. Will never dine there again.

Where do I even start in regards to this restaurant. I got there and it wasn’t what I expected in a bad way. Not welcoming having to wait 30 mins for drinks and watch other people who arrived after us get served quicker was disappointing. Asked the staff about the status of our drinks and got lied to directly in the face in which she said “ oh it’s at the counter I will get it right now for you.” Had to wait additional 10 mins for simple drinks that was on the menu not even a special order. The food was mediocre and my date got fried chicken and corn bread that was obvious it was store-bought and reheated in the microwave. Wouldn’t recommend to a friend or family and personally wouldn’t be returning. A waste of my money! It’s said when you try to support a black own restaurant and the service/Quality is so horrific.

I've been there 3 times, twice for lunch meeting, once for dinner with a group. Nice vibe, attentive staff, fair prices. Good for local get togethers. Interesting fusion of neo Caribbean & New Orleans' dishes. Will be back soon.

The food was not the best. The service was slow and the server was not paying attention to our order so drinks were left at the bar until I asked if it was mine to another server it is not a restaurant that I will return to. Also they didn't bring our dinners at the same time they brought mine first leaving my friends with nothing for 15 min.

Unfortunately this place would have been better if there were more people on the floor helping to take orders. Everything was delayed because we only had on person taking our orders. We asked another person if they could take our order and was told that they only take orders for people outside and at the time there was only one group of 4 that were sitting outside but the main dinning room was full.

We made reservations for 7:00 pm. We did not get seated until after 7:30 pm as there was a large group present. The servers were friendly and apologetic for the wait. However it took a while to place our orders in, but the food came out quickly. The food was good, especially the grits. It was a decent time.

I had the shrimp and grits which were GREAT. However I had to wait over an hour for my food as my friends already got their food. Also my waiter did not come check to see if everything was fine once the food was delivered.
