Description: Chef Herb Allwood and his wife Pamela Womble opened 701 mosaic in August 2008 to present an exciting array of old and new world flavors and showcase their passion for Caribbean and Mediterranean cuisine. They have successfully created an award-winning warm and welcoming bistro in what was once an abandoned pizza parlor in Ocean City’s North End. The team also received a 2008 Beautification Award from the City of Ocean City for their renovation of their property.

I really wanted to love this place and was hoping to give it a great review. After all, Ocean City is hardly a dining Mecca. It's a dry town and the inability to even byob equals an abundance of family restaurants, too many of which seem to be sub-par Italian. So a Jamaican-Mediterranean restaurant is a very welcome addition and... More

We came here for the 1st time because of all the good reviews on Trip Advisor... and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent; probably the best I've had in quite a while. My only criticism would be that a few menu items were unavailable, but it could just be due to the lateness of the season. They are... More

What a nice place! Owner run and operated this little gem is worth a trip. Very nice menu with very authentic dishes will burst with flavor. Ask for recommendations, they will share their specials and favorites. BYOB, which we like. We are also planning on doing a group dinner soon.

The food was great. Friends and family have been telling me all summer how good the food is. Unfortunately I caught the end of the season and the waitress kept coming out and telling us what was no longer available. We did get a couple dishes which had some changes from what was on the menu, but no complaints with... More

Literally the best Ribeye I've ever had, 701 mosaic is a great experience for a smaller type business. Great food, definitely deserves the price, and kind manager and chef (And of course the waiters were great too)

If you are at the shore and looking for some delicious food that has more flare than boardwalk food you must try 701 mosaic. The service here is fantastic and the food is even better, if that's even possible. It's not your typical shore food like pizza or wings, it's better. 701 mosaic is one of my favorite restaurants to... More

How wonderful. A restaurant that serves food that is both tasty and good for you. OC is just loaded with restaurants serving deep-fat fried or over-sauced foods, so this restaurant serving food that is healthy (with interesting and bold seasonings) is much appreciated. It's a rarity. I enjoyed the jerk chicken (which is spicy but not as hot as I've... More

As the review's title states - this was aything but amazing. Not that we were expecting that, but the great reviews suckered us into dining here and what a waste of money. If you are easily pleased, reluctant to critique, and used to your Aunt Betty's sub-par cooking, you just might like this place. If you're looking for something that... More

Our party of two was seated a few minutes late on a Wednesday night with a 7:30 reservation. We had the Mosaic sampler platter to start. Entrees of Jerk Chicken and Crab Cakes. The sampler was a few chicken wings, some calamari, some patties. It was delicious. The Jerk Chicken was pretty spicy! I drank 5 glasses of water to... More
