We found this restaurant on Groupon and decided to try it. We enjoy Cajun food and the chef did not disappoint us. The meal was amazing and tantalized the palet. The atmosphere was quaint and the service was unbeatable. We will definately go back again and hope people who enjoy an exquisit and flavourful meal, will give it a try.

If you want to experience Caribbean dining, Jambalaya is the place to go. The staff is friendly and eager to please. The chef definitely knows what he is doing. We took friends from out of town to sample some food, and we all ordered something different. Each of our meals were prepared to our satisfaction, all tasting different and unique. I ordered 'spicy', which went well with my beer, but next time, I think I might stick with 'medium' spice. Food service was prompt, hot and delicious. Will definitely go again!

Usually I go to a restaurant more than once before I write it off but my Friday dinner there was comically bad. It took them over an hour to serve us gumbo and a salad with jerk chicken and we had to flag the guy down to get a drink. This is not a large restaurant and I could see the two staff were really just walking around aimlessly. As far as the food, the chef's version of gumbo was just bad, it tasted kind of like a browning sauce and it was salty to the point that I couldn't finish it. The jerk chicken was brutal, it was over cooked to the point of murder and again salty beyond belief.

I would never go back there are way better restaurants downtown that don't need to buy a clue.
