It was a last minute decision to go here and It was the last night they were open before closing for the season. I'm glad we went. All my years here and we never went there. The food was excellent. Some of the best caribbean food I have ever had not in the Caribbean. After this meal, we will be... More

Very authentic Caribbean food. A lot of attention to detail. Most of my family ordered pork and loved it. I ordered the curry shrimp and was very pleased. Owner was very accommodating. Will definitely go back on our annual OCNJ trips.

We vacationed in O.C. last year and again last week. We found 701 Mosaic last year and really enjoyed it. We made sure to visit again this year and were not disappointed. It's clearly a family operation. The hostess is warm and welcoming. The restaurant is small, but nicely decorated. Portions are large. The cuisine is Jamaican. The appetizers are... More

We were headed to ocean city last minute and i was checking my trip advisor for top restaurants in the area.The reviews were great and we decided to walk in cold at 5pm. The owner greeted us at the door and said she would fit us in, a family of 6 mind you. The restaurant is small only 10 tables... More

We were visiting Ocean City and we wanted something different from the boardwalk food. We found this corner restaurant in the corner of 4th and Ocean Avenue - we loved the curry shrimp and Jamaican Jerk chicken!!! We also enjoyed the sampler starter for 2. Would definitely come back again!!!!!

Small attractive restaurant featuring Jamaican cuisine. We ordered meat and vegetable pattys which were good. I had jerk chicken and it was very good. My wife ordered grouper which tasted fishy. She orders it elsewhere and knew immediately it was not fresh. The service was average at best. The staff seemed to be preoccupied with setting up tables for reservations... More

We were vacationing in Cape May and we were looking for a place to eat in Ocean City. I happened to see good reviews for Mosaic 701 and we figured we would try it out. I am not a big Salmon dish lover, it was a special and the waitress spoke so highly of it that I had to give... More

Service and kitchen can both be a little slow at times because everything is made to order, so don't expect a quick in and out type of experience. It is worth the wait though. The place itself is small but very clean, bright, and has a comfortable temperature. There is also outdoor seating. The food is incredibly fresh and well-seasoned.... More

This is already on our list but decided to try takeout so we could have our glass of wine at home. Great quality food. Owners are very proud of what they have and keep quality and service very high.

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 successfully created an upscale yet 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 the property. 701 Mosaic operates seasonally from May to October and looks forward to your next visit.
