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.

OCNJ is notorius as a dining wasteland so we thought this would be fun to try. The Carib/Med concept is good. Three out of four dinners were well received: shrimp curry, salmon, and mac&cheese (9 yr old, but it was good). I had the jerk pork and it was pretty dry. The spicing was decent. Another specialty was their ginger... More

Ever try a place that you read about and was pleasantly surprised. This was it. My wife and I visited here after a nice day on the beach and WOW what a great way to end a day. The food was good [spicy] and we both enjoyed what we had. Service was casual.

701 Mosaic benefits from being a more upscale dining option in a resort town typical bereft of such options. My family's recent dinner here had some hits, and notable misses. We started with the sampler appetizer, which was a nice portion of tasty chicken wings, some pretty good calamari, some bland and tasteless patties (with different stuffings, which didn't seem...

My husband and I couldn't stop raving about this place! The food was on point from beginning to end. The entrees were colorful and seasoned to a unique perfection. Staff was genuinely kind and fun to be around.

The Jerk seasoning was hot - but certainly edible and portion sizes were great. We had a very nice time at this Caribbean style restaurant.

My husband and I went to 701 Mosaic after seeing the good review on TA, and we were not disappointed! Some reviewers commented that the decor is fairly basic, and it is (so what), but that is all that was basic about this place. We came later in the evening and there was only one other couple in the restaurant... More

My wife and I had an awesome Memorial Day weekend dinner here. My wife had the jerk shrimp and I had the jerk chicken...both were excellent. I also enjoyed the home made ginger beer. The service was great and we felt right at home. We'll definitely be stopping by here again.
