The food and the cocktails are to die for here. Really, just stunning. Okay, but..... Although servers were kind, efficient, friendly and accurate, there are some improvements they need to make. They charge fine dining prices, and for fine dining prices they need to box up my leftovers for me, and they need to put the leftovers box in a bag. Also, unless coffee is identified as a specialty coffee, then coffee needs free refills. Really, $12 for 2 1/2 cups of coffee? We were happy to pay high prices for fine rums and wonderful meals. But not for coffee refills.

Birthday gathering and The Breadfruit offered the perfect ambiance! The food was great - sharing plates are small but awesome; the entrees -- OMG! Superb. The guys are both cigar smokers so that was truly a bonus.
If you enjoy GOOD Jamaican food - put it on your list.

This place has a relaxed feel. My after-work type of spot. I have tried most of the dishes and have never been disappointed. I definitely would return to try the rest of the dishes. I especially like the escovitch fish and the jerk chicken. The rum cocktails are amazing.
Service was well-timed and friendly.
Did I already mention the amazing cocktails?

We dined there on Saturday night-- with reservations-- but we were still late being seated at 6PM. The food was Very Disappointing! The food was so salty it was hard to eat. None of us could enjoy the meal. The best item on anyone's plate was the plantains.
As an example: I ordered the escovitch fish. Small and bony is OK. Overcooked, very salty, and covered with onions was not OK. Especially when I asked the waitress to leave off the Escovitch (pickled) onions. And then there were the the grilled onions tucked inside, she said were not there.
Good drinks. Not going back for the food.

The food was excellent. However, the noise level was excessive to the extent that normal conversation was a challenge. Having lived in Jamaica for three years, we felt that there was an authentic atmosphere. However, the lighting made it impossible for me to read the menu. We were on a fairly tight schedule due to theatre tickets. We felt that once we did not accept the waiter's recommendations he lost interest somewhat and our food was a long time coming. I would like to try the restaurant again under different circumstances - it has potential but I do think that the noise and lighting issues need to given attention.

LOVED this restaurant. We've wanted to get here since first hearing about it. We sat outside on a perfect Arizona evening and that was magical. The server - Christian- was a blast and excellent at her recommendations and tending to our every need. We started with a round of the rum punch bowl cocktails. Very fresh and not too sweet. My daughter and husband had the pulled pork and her friend and I had the tofu. Excellent, flavorful and a good portion. We had the best evening but try her recommendation for a rum pairing with your food on the rocks. The options are endless and it's my opinion if you go to a rum bar, try it straight so you can appreciate the smooth complexities. Don't forget to have a nightcap and cigar on the patio before you leave to round out your experience! We will be back!

This restaurant has changed over time, and the original ambiance seems to have disappeared. The food was too expensive for the minimalist serving size. The noise level made conversation a challenge. Sadly, we all agreed we would not return, even though the location was convenient to theaters, etc.

First and foremost Breadfruit/ Rum Bar has extensive selection of high quality rums. Those rums can be sampled by the glass or in a tasting flight. Likewise, they craft some amazing original cocktails and reinvent classics ultizing their exceptional Rum collection. Beyond the Rum, the carribean inspired menu features authentic flavors, ingredients, and some of the freshest fish in town. Standards are very high in this establishment and that includes the staff. But excellence does come with a price. So if you're on a budget, it might not be your first choice for dinner. But drinks and apps are pretty much on par with most other causal fine-dining restaurants.

This was our second trip. Let me say that our wait Person, Christian, was top notch. Unfortunately the same could not be said about the food. The food was okay, but considering the price, it should have been better. We also thought the prices were too high on the drinks. They were served in little glasses. Come on guys: Rum Punch should be served in a big glass. The Rum bar is really cute, music is nice, people very friendly and helpful.

Drinks were outstanding. Grazed on appetizers: scallops and the ceviche were excellent - almost ordered another round of the scallops. Shrimp and johnny cakes had good shrimp and sauce but johnny cakes were too dense, a bit dry & doughy. Overall, however, a great dinner & we will be back to explore more of the menus! Definitely recommended. Great place for dinner before a flic at FilmBar.

Over heard their entire conversation. Food was excellent, service good. Portions of food were very small. Nice place, but probably won't return
