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.

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

It seems this restaurant lacks a sense of identity. I was not sure what type of food was being offered. It was part Jamaican part American. The Jerk Pork with accompanying rice was lacking the true jerk flavored and heat I was expecting. The rice was stale and half cooked, not eatable. The rest of the family's meals were also... More

One of our favorites in OC. The Jerk chicken and pork are both excellent. Shared the mosaic salad which was great also. Nice atmosphere. Not your usual summer shore place

We always go with Trip Advisor recommendations. After reading the reviews, we were excited to have dinner at 701 Mosaic. As soon as we sat down, we were informed that the linguini with clam sauce, the crab cakes, and the couscous were not available that evening. Unfortunately, those were two of the entrees people had raved about and three of... More

Was still slightly skeptical when we arrived but quickly changed our minds when the food arrived. Brother in law had a T-Bone steak cooked to perfection and jerk chicken was excellent. Much needed food oasis after a few nights of boardwalk fare.

A friend mentioned 701 Mosaic to me this morning on the boardwalk as a place to checkout. We went tonight without reservations and absolutely loved the meal. My wife had salmon with ginger sauce over rice with vegetables and said that every bite was delicious. I had linguine with white clam sauce. Without a doubt one of the best. Sauce... More

Tried 701 Mosaic on our last night in OC. The food was fantastic!! Had the jerk chicken which was wonderful . Recommend this restaurant. It was great to be in a family owned restaurant where the owners take great pride in what they do.

We totally enjoyed this meal! The jerk chicken, shrimp curry and pasta puttanesca are just a few of the great dishes at our table. The chef nailed every one of them.
