The food was awful, terrible, horrible, embarrassing actually. The rice was old, had an after taste. The Mac n cheese was horrible, plain made with horrible cheese. The steak was horrible, asked for medium rare, got well done and not seasoned. The restaurant had no collard greens, asked for yams and the chef messed them up and didn't want to serve them & the shrimp batter was awful. The service was also bad and the tables were sticky. Paid $78 for garage- everything. Definitely a hood spot. Would not recommend at all.

Came in for happy hour was told it ended at 7 when flyer clearly states 8 pm ,it was so hot couldn’t enjoy food due to flies flying around ,customer services was more of a who’s who not on paying customers

Highly not recommended!!! Save your hard earned dollars because this food is canned. Doesn’t even taste a little bit of fresh. My string beans tasted like sour milk and was cold at that. You can just tell when food is being reheated too many times. Give it up or do better.

Visited a couple nights ago with a friend. After ordering it took at least 30-40 for his food (in which the order was wrong) and he was completely done eating by the time my food came. It should NEVER took almost an hour for wings and fries. It wasn't even mildly packed at the time. Told myself I'll never go back. If u are already hungry this isn't the place to go for food

The food was delicious, chicken nicely seasoned and crispy. Those yams are to die for, and the drinks are good too. Definitely will go again.


Chef Curvan’s cooking will put your own mother to shame. Soul food like you’ve had nowhere else. Will be coming back soon!

I visited this place about 3 hours ago. We walked in and everyone stared at us, we stood there for 15 minutes with no one in front of us to get our order taken. We than witness an argument between hostess and customer, which could of been prevented. It wasn’t worth going back and forward with a customer. Finally our order was taken and we waited for 1 hour and a half before asking how much longer. Still no food as Hostess showed off her tattoos. We decided to leave without the food as it was getting late and there wasn’t an answer for how much longer the food would take.
