Such an awesome place to meet up with my friend to try something new. The bartender was knowledgeable and helpful in advising on which drinks to try according to what we liked flavor wise. Overall amazing experience!

Yes, I'd recommend Breadfruit, but largely because I've eaten there previously and enjoyed it tremendously. This recent visit was disappointing, however. Perhaps just a bad night. We showed up for our reservation, noted a free table in the outdoor location we had requested, but were told to sit in the bar while we waited 20 minutes for them to set the table for us. They could have sat us there when we arrived, with minimal work to set the table. Perhaps they were short staffed. This was further suggested by the length of time we had to wait for waiter attention, including between courses when there was an inordinately long break. The outdoor setting was lovely, as always, and it was quiet enough for good conversation among our four-member group. But the food itself was disappointing compared to what we have experienced before. I won't go into a detailed analysis but some of the dishes were too dry while others were drenched in Tamarind sauce. The usual attention to detail seemed to be missing. We'll probably go again, but I hope that this recent experience was out the ordinary going forward.

The food was good as was the ambiance. The waiter was very accomodating, but the maitre d was a bit rude and full of herself. Nice selection of tapas.

I went here based on online reviews and two generations referrals. We got there and we basically got seated at the Bar Area because restaurant was full. I made reservations at 8pm for my friends birthday (what does that mean). The waiter for my Ginger beer which came well after my friends drink. Also, we ordered an dish after we were done and the waiter forgot to put it in and we waited well over 30 minutes for it. I also, asked when I got there for a piece a cake 🍰 for my for my friends birthday they said fine not a problem sir. When it came time for desert they said someone got the last piece of cake and they apologized for the inconvenience. I think for $132.00 you would get better service. I may recommend this a lunch time bar but not dinner..

The only complaint is the noise level, maybe sit louder guests outside?? I don’t know. I feel bad about even saying that because my significant other and I loved dining here. Our waitress was so helpful and kind, the food was PHENOMENAL....we loved it.

The service was VERY VERY slow and forgetful.
The menu did not accurately reflect the spiciness of the food. I ordered a vegetable and rice plate that did not say anything about begin spicy. It was VERY spicy.
Some of the food was exceptional. But the menu is very limited with few choices.
you have to LOVE their seasoning and preparation in order to go back.

We eat here a lot - food was extraordinarily spicy, way beyond what we are used to eating. Nobody cared that we did not enjoy the food. And at the end of the night - they messed up our bill and overcharged us $35 which we got corrected. Very disappointed

We had a reservation at 7pm. Unfortunately, we did not get seated until after 8pm. We did not mind, because the atmosphere is great and we were offered Rum Punches on the house. Just know, that sometimes tables are slow and you might not be seated at your specific reservation time. We will be back.

The overall experience was everything but enjoyable & what we expected. This place was recommended to us by a friend. We chose to come here for our anniversary. The food was expensive for a very small portion, 2 scallops for $14. We ordered garlic bread, it was “missed” and then it arrived burnt. It took way too long to receive our food- an hour & 15 minutes. The customer service was poor and we had to ask for our garlic bread three times. And lastly, a table of 4 who was seated after us and ordered after us, received their food before us.

This was our second visit, this time with a party of four. The place was busy on a Friday night, but the service was very good. I will say that as someone who is a little hard of hearing, it was difficult to understand the server...my wife had her come to my side of the table! I will say this, if you cannot tolerate "spice" as in heat...beware of it in this place...or be prepared to order extra "Punch Bowl cocktails," which are EXCELLENT, AT ANY RATE.

The Rum based cocktail experience is something that you must have! Even if you think you do not like Rum, you will leave rethinking that ...

This should be a 5 star review. The food, service, drinks and atmosphere were perfect. Unfortunately , dessert missed the mark. After hearing the waiter explain the special dessert of the night, my guest and I decided on one each. Within minutes the waiter notified us they only had 1 left. Our dinner was at 630pm and they were out of dessert at 700pm? This seemed suspicious. Once we received the 1 dessert, we discovered the “rum cake” was rock hard. It was still delicious! But... harder than a scone in texture. After asking the waiter what the consistency should have been , he advised us it should have been cake like. Long story short, the only reasonable explanation was that it was a day old dessert as you don’t run out of dessert within a 1.5 dinner window. Too bad. Other than this, it was an exceptional meal.

Waited ~30 minutes to get main course.
Had to remain them of our order.
Then found a piece of steel in one of the dishes.

Our first small plates were not amazing...
In summary I would not recommend the place except for the Rum cocktails

Breadfruit and Rum is amazing!! The restaurant has a great atmosphere and heavenly cocktails. Our favorite cocktails were the Kingston 5 and Hurricane Charlie. You have to get the spicy shrimp appetizer. Then we ordered the jerk chicken, tamarind fish and curried goat. All of them were great! We finished off with a rum cake... which was also delicious. You can't get anything bad on this menu.

If you love Rum (like I do) then you'll be happy at Breadfruit. And if you love spicy food you have to get the Pepper Shrimp - it's amazing. All the food is great here so give it a try.

We celebrated our anniversary at this restaurant for the 2nd time and had a wonderful experience. The food was delicious and the entree portions are a great size for the price. They have a huge rum selection and their speciality drinks taste amazing. They gave us a complimentary glass of rum for our anniversary and we thought that was a very nice thing to do. Our server was great and very knowledgeable about the menu, which cocktails tasted good with which entree, and even the cigar pairings. Looking forward to celebrating again at this gem of a restaurant in the near future!

Superb food and service. We planned to order the roasted plantains and mango dip and were told that it was unavailable as the plantains weren’t ripe. I prefer that to being served a sub-par dish with unripened fruit. Will gladly be back.

Fantastic service and an exceptional drink menu. We sat outside on the small patio and were very comfortable. Some of the food items we had hoped to order were not available but what we did have was very good although portions are small. It's nice to support a local, non-chain establishment.

I was given a gift card for my birthday. None of us had been here before. We found a beautiful rum bar with every rum imaginable! The dining room is small but has an open feeling, not cramped. The food was delectable!!! Service was amazing. The chef personally came out and spoke to each of us!! She is an amazing chef who really cares what her diners want and feel! Will definitely go back!
