First time here, we will return without a doubt. Absolutely outstanding service I wonderful server named Gabby, who thoroughly understood the menu and was able to make outstanding recommendations. Lovely but unpretentious atmosphere, a lot of beautiful small touches… And exceptional food. We all had salmon, incredible array of flavors, perfectly cooked. The desserts were unusual and very special. And... More

Up to this evening, our culinary experiences in Phoenix have been deceiving. We came to this place with no reservations on a mid-week day and no expectations. The waitress instructed us to the specialities of the house (exotic cocktails and fresh fish and seafood) and we followed her suggestions and dropped the idea to drink wine. The service was friendly;... More

As we walked in for our 6:30 reservation, it was empty but within the hour the place was packed! Our waitress was excellent and we enjoyed all of her recommendations, as well as other items. My husband enjoyed the pepper shrimp small plate which he said was quite spicy. The mussels, pork belly, and lamb shank were all so delicious.... More

What a great place to have a cigar and some terrific rum. Went here twice during my short visit and it was great. The music is great. The cigars are great. The rum is great. The patio to smoke the cigars and drink the rum on is great

We are always looking for something new, away from the typical chain restaurant experience. A friend recommended this place. It is located in a trendy, up-and-coming, revitalized area of downtown Phoenix. WARNING! Make reservations, which we had, and hopefully all from your party is present at the same time; otherwise, you may receive a terse lecture from the waitress (early... More

Went here with a colleague who lives nearby. When he said 'upscale Jamaican' I didn't know what to expect. What a treat. It was a short walk from our downtown hotel and a wonderful place to arrive.... elegant Caribbean vibe, extensive rum bar, exotic & interesting menu + warm, friendly, hip service. The food and atmosphere were memorable. Check it... More

Who would have thought you could find a gem like this in the Moonscape that is downtown Phoenix. A vibrant busy place like no other where you can slake your thirst on wonderfully creative rum cocktails while enjoying outstanding food including the best jerk outside of Jamaica. Wow! I was almost put off by previous reports of lousy service but,... More

While in Phoenix for a conference, I decided to try Breadfruit for a different dining experience. The restaurant is quaint and has good atmosphere--dimly lit and colorful artwork. I went with a colleague on a Wednesday evening and although there was no one else in the dining room, and the likelihood that there would be other customers was very slim... More
