Nice people, great music and art. Overpriced. Like other reviews said, it’s odd that the dishes aren’t well timed to come out together. My kid’s vegan Mac took forever so we were done eating just as hers arrived. Crab Mac n cheese was rich and yummy but I question the thick layer of cheese on the top. It’s a lot. Caesar salad came w dressing on the side (?) and was difficult to mix. This place is putting so much single use plastic into the landfill. Plastic utensils?? For $24 Mac and cheese? Just no. Also, be aware gratuity is included like a lot of Miami. I accidentally tipped $26 on a $65 bill. My fault for not watching close. Not like they’re gonna question it.
No alcohol, just lemonade.

We stopped by here while on our honeymoon and I’m so glad we did! The service was top notch and the food and different flavor lemonades were amazing! 🤤 I wish we had one here in NC! Best part about this place is that it’s black owned! I researched black owned restaurants and this was the first to pop up! Finally a place we can come to and enjoy our type of music and eat good at the same damn time! Lol 😂 ❤️

Highly overrated. Your grandmas Mac n cheese would be way better. Wait time to get seated for a reservation was ridiculous. Food wait time was super long. Unorganized. Horrible experience. Will not be going back.

The meal was excellent. The problem was that it took almost an entire hour to get it. Once the waiter checked on it, he told us it would be out in ten minutes. The staff is so friendly and the place has great ambience but the kitchen needs to do better.

The jerk chicken Mac and cheese was amazing! It was super flavorful! The mango lemonade is a must-try. We went for the very-instagrammable seafood Mac and although it was beautiful, it was a bit bland. It’s also a bit of a pain to remove the tails from the shells. The service was great and our servers were sooooo nice! We’ll definitely come back on our next trip through Miami!

We are from Chicago. My husband and I were on a restaurant tour. This place did not disappoint. It was so delicious we went back again before we heading back to Chicago. The ambiance was great. Staff was amazing! I will find a way to make it here anytime I’m in Florida.

The food was excellent. We all ordered different macs and they were all great and pipping hot. The restaurant had a nice ambience but it was small. The service however was not what I expected. Although the staff greeted us, they barely came by to check on us. We had to go find them for most of what we needed. You have to order and pay from an app, which would not work for us. It took an hour from the time we ordered to get our food.

We were a bit disappointed overall. We had made a special trip to overtown from Miami Beach. We had reservations and still had to wait outside for 20 minutes past to even get inside to place and order. The reservation did help guarantee us a seat though which was nice. I think the staff has great intentions but the overall process could just use some improvements. We were not satisfied with the quality of meat in the steak philly Mac either. We both left feeling a little sick.
