I have been to some Caribbean restaurant but this one is different. Ordinary Caribbean restaurants have mostly Jerk Chicken and curry that usually not too tasty and boring. This restaurant does not have any curry but they have some very unique dishes which is very...flavorful. They have some pretty hot pepper in the dishes too. The Chiquetaille (Shredded smoked herring fish mixed with peppery vinaigrette creole spices) is exceptionally good which tastes a little bit like the Chinese XO sauce (you can tell I am Chinese :^) ). The lady recommended deep fried fish and we have ordered it. It is very tasty and not dried. The other main dish is Tasso de Boeuf (deep fried beef). It is new to us since how often you see deep fried beef but it comes out a little bit dry to my taste. It feels like a little bit like beef jerkey and not bad. Both main dishes come with different types of rice which compliment the main dishes and are good. The dessert is a home-made rum cake and it is really good. It tastes very fresh and moist and is very different from and much better than those you get from Nassau. Recommended. The lady says that they also sell the rum cake but it has to be ordered in advance. It is a good deal. She has shown us the cake pan and I believe that it is a 12" cake for $25. The place is also BYOB which makes it even better. I will definitely go back to try the other dishes.More

Decided to try something different and love the flavors of Caribbean foods. Got there about 4pm, we were the only ones dining in with couple of people waiting for their take out. Took a little while for someone to come from back and seat us....Tables were nicely decorated with quality service ware. We ordered salmon and stewed turkey. Salmon was a steak and had lots of bones and cook baked not well enough in my opinion. Some people like salmon cooked this way but we don't. It came with string beans, black rice, and plantains. The turkey was delicious in a very light sauce that was a little spicy. Also came with black rice and plantains. Both entrees came with very nice salads with mesclun greens not iceberg. The juice drinks were too pricey at $5.99, we had mango which was like an icee and passionfruit which was good both in small cups. We were told that juice drink were fresh. We did not have dessert only noticed one available which was rum cake. We would come back again for the Turkey dinner. Service was very good.More

We loved our dinner at Woulibam. The dining room is cute and comfortable, you can bring your own wine, and the food is outstanding. Many restaurants like this can feel sort of like home kitchens, but Woulibam must have a pro chef in the kitchen...-- the menu is large and varied, and the food is well prepared and presented. Standouts were a beautiful whole red snapper, and fantastic 'black rice,' cooked in mushroom broth with pigeon peas. Give it a try, Maplewood!More

We had dinner with two other couples at Woulibam soon after it open. It is a beautiful space and the food was very good, but it is still getting its act together. The service was friendly, but got slower and slower as more people came...in. There were also some oddities, such as the champagne glasses that were brought over for your BYOB white and red wine. The food, however, was very good when it arrived. We ate griot, stews, fish. Several of us had been on a mission trip to Haiti together, and the evening was a nice reminder of our time in Haiti together. We left with full bellies and a burn in our mouths from the spicy, authentic food.More
