The Breadfruit & Rum Bar
Excellent dining experience. Found this on a whim searching opentable while making a downtown PHX pitstop from the airport. Incredible service from staff, from constant water refilling to recommendations to a speedy side for our dish. Food was beyond words, but every bite was incredible and just as we expected and more. Artful presentation and of course an endless selection of rum choices which makes for many great and uniquely different cocktails. An absolute must try if you are in Phoenix
I love the spicy shrimp!!
Our server was incredibly knowledgeable! He suggested the perfect drink food pairings.
We had a fantastic time at Breadfruit and Rum Bar. Angelica was our server and she did an amazing job recommending items and guiding us through the menu. As restaurateurs we know what is means to provide excellent service and we found all of our needs anticipated and met with grace. The food was also excellent. Thank you very much. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking to experience the best of Phoenix.
Very creative with a Jamaican twist. Lots of interesting ingredients. You can sample small and large plates. Be forewarned the 5 pepper shrimp will make your head sweat! Loved the brisket entree; very tender. The service is flawless teamwork. And best of all was the hot rum toddy for dessert! Will definitely be going back.
Our dining experience at The Breadfruit was like a mini vacation to the Caribbean. Having lived in Jamaica dor a decade I can vouch for the authenticity of the food. The restaurant even smells of Jamaica. The rum drinks are works of art. Love the music and relaxed outdoor seating.
I loved it! The food was delicious, the drinks were amazing, and the setting was very beautiful. Our server was very attentive and did a great job of explaining the menu and answering our questions. There is more on the menu I'd like to try, so I'll be back!
Made reservation well in advance, and noted on the Open Table form that it was for a birthday ... yet was placed at a small table squeezed into the back of the crowded bar and next to the restrooms. Server kept telling us what we should order rather than first asking what we wanted. Acted disappointed when we made a different choice. Even though we made a relatively early reservation at 7:45 on a Saturday, two main entrees that we wanted were already gone. The second choices were not up to par. The clams and shrimp sausage was much too salty ... the server offered another item but didn't want to wait; the salmon was slightly overcooked. However, the Tiger shrimp appetizer that we ordered despite the server's recommendation was easily the best dish of the meal. The cocktails, again the ones we chose, were outstanding. The desert was uneventful.
Loved our meal at the Breadfruit. Great food, cocktails and amazing service!
Pleasantly surprised by this hidden little gem. Beautiful location, attentive service, cigar and tasting patio. The Food isn't for the faint of heart. Jamaican spice and flair throughout - less about the heat more about the flavor. Must appreciate rum!
My husband and I have been celebrating our wedding anniversary here for the past 5 yrs. we have shared and brought many guests with us. Everyone loved the food, the daily punch, and the ambience. Service is always impeccable.
This bar is great! Make sure to make a reservation it makes a world of difference. It is worth it. The menus is thoughtful put together and an upscale twist on classic Jamaican food. It was delicious and the drinks were amazing. Atmosphere is just right for a date night. Staff was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. One of the best eating experiences I’ve had. Plus the music was spot on. I took my Jamaican husband and he loved it! First Jamaican restaurant we went to where he hasn’t complained about the food not being food enough or authentic enough.
Our server was extremely knowledgable about the dishes and each time she recommended something, we wanted to try it. She also did a wonderful job of recommending cocktails to pair with our food selections. The cocktails were expertly-made and full of flavor. Overall, it was a wonderful experience and we are excited to return in the near future.
This one star rating is due to we never received our food in a reasonable amount of time. We truly were anticipating a fine meal, but, after waiting for over one hour, we had to give up and head out to a concert , downtown. This was not the fault of our waitress, she tried her best. The kitchen just did not perform. We left very disappointed and Hungry!
Went for our daughters 17th birthday her favorite special place to go. Made reservations for 6 showed a couple minutes early and were sat on the patio as requested with 1 other table out there at the time. The bar was empty and there may have been 2 tables inside. We ordered appetizers and drinks which took over a half hour to get we were out of water by time first round of drinks came and the waiter had no interest on giving drink recommendation other than the beginning greeting that the tell everyone. We appetizers finally arrived and we ordered another round of drinks which again no water no nothing half hour to receive. AN HOUR AND HALF into being there after seeing most of the inside full get their food and multiple people come and go outside. I had to complain and say where the heck is our food. At the 1 hour 40 minute mark we finally got our food. Chicken was dry and we didn't have time to eat and had to box it up to go. Late to our concert at 8. Been here multiple times and never had such a horrible experience. No time to even look at the dessert menu, on our daughters birthday, plus the guy was telling people if they wanted to order anything at all it would be another 40 minutes and was talking people into leaving with out ordering after they had their drinks. Super disappointing. First of like 4 tables to arrive one of very last to leave. Terrible!!!! Oh and by the way it was close to $300 bucks with a tip
Our go to date night spot in phx!! Shout out to olivia, amazing service
Another perfect evening at Breadfruit! Olivia was our waitress and was phenomenal, best service we’ve ever had. The cocktails and food are delicious, try the pepper shrimp. Everyone was so helpful and made sure we had a great time. Trust your server here, they know what they’re talking about!! Olivias recommendations and cocktail pairings were spot on. Thanks Breadfruit for a successful date night!
It was wonderful from start to finish. Jenielle was delightful!
Great experience all around
Great food and service! The drink of the day was the Best rum drink I ever had!
Loooooved our experience here! SO unique and balanced between upscale fiod amazing food fantastic bar tenders & perfect music. Overall - i love this place.
Post Symphony- it’s one of the few restaurants in our fair city that is open past 10 -
Well prepared meal in a cute setting. Rum based drinks were interesting and fun. Good service; we’ll be back.
Love going to The Breadfruit and Run Bar, the food is great and so are the drinks. There is a problem with the noise level though, there are no surfaces to absorb the noise and it gets really loud in there to the point when there have been times where we can't have a conversation within the people at our table.
Excellent drinks. Excellent quality of rum drinks. Super customer service by our waiter. Food was also delicious.
Excellent all around!
This was our 2nd time doing dinner here. The first time which was in August was outstanding. This 2nd time was a totally different experience. We ordered the same exact apps and entrees and everything was so salty and over seasoned it was nearly impossible to eat. We asked for two side servings of rice just to help absorb some of the over powering seasoning. Very disappointing. For a small place like this with a limited menu and higher priced dishes you’d think consistency would be easy enough. We had the peppered shrimp, scallops and smoked trout. I would not be able to recommend any of these fishies. The rum punch is excellent.
Out of several items (3 requested).
Had reservation but was seated 15 minutes late...both of these first two critiques were passed off as a by product of a downtown concert. ( not acceptable excuse)
Noise level high and type of seating made hearing difficult.
Parking meters only take app input...really?
Good food and good concept...can't be out of the best items at 7:00pm!
Service...auto pilot...no, pay attention and know your customer!
Very unique the food was amazing the drinks were awesome ! My next visit to Phoenix I will definitely go back
Excellent food, service, drinks and ambiance.
We all had a memorable experience and
would highly recommend this fabulous restaurant !
As always a wonderful experience! Loved the rum flights!
Great service! Issac was very knowledgeable. He had perfect recommendations every time. I had a blast!
Me and my girlfriend were visiting from NYC and were both excited to check this place out as we both adore Jamaican food. Needless to say we were not disappointed, the cocktail and drink selections were spot on and our waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and drink pairings (If the owners are reading I wish I could remember her name as she deserves kudos, she mentioned she was from the DR if that helps?).
The brisket was tender and the sauce it came in was rich and flavorful, and my girlfriend ordered the coconut tofu curry which she said was amazing. For desert we shared the sweet potato pie which ended everything off perfectly. Definitely recommended!
Fun place. Great service. The shrimp small plate was wonderful, although a touch salty for me. The mussels were delicious. Huge selection of rums, the waiter picked one for me based on my description of what I like and it was perfect. Only 2 kinds of wine - red and white - so don't go there for the wine.
It was a great dining experience! Can’t say anything but good things about this restaurant! Food was over the top delicious, everyone from the front door hostess to our waiter (Brooks?) were so kind, warm and friendly in the most sincere way. We will be back and have already told our friends about this gem!
The food and drinks are excellent and the wait staff are extremely helpful with their suggestions. I can't wait to go back!
first visit, looking forward to try another new dish
The dining room was a bit dark
Service was outstanding. Our server knew exactly what was in all of the dishes and answered many questions. He was efficient and pleasant. The food was outstanding and seemed to be authentic. The bar tender really knew all of the ingredients in his drinks and how they would enhance each one.
