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 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.

“Great food and great service!”

We had the Jerk chicken, which was delicious and spicy! No beer or wine, but service was friendly and efficient.

“Something Unique and Special”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

Visited 701 Mosaic last night. Family owned restaurant specializing in Caribbean and Jamaican dishes. Most eating places in Ocean City are the typical pizza, cheesesteak, fried seafood arrangement. This place is different.

First of, they accept credit cards which is unusual and convenient. But the real thing is the variety of excellent dishes. We had the jerk Chicken which was he best I've ever had; even better than in our multiple trips to Jamaica. They also have seafood. I tried the whitefish cooked with vegetables which was also very good.

I highly recommend this place and it's even better as there are so few good choices in this town that are unique and special.

“Favorite Place to Eat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

We went to this restaurant last year, and were determined to revisit it this summer. It was hard to find, but we did - and it was well worth it. The food (we had breakfast) is excellent and plentiful - I had a custom omelet, which comes with fruit, toast and potatotes, and a glass of sorrel - and the service warm and friendly. It's a pleasure to go there. I just wish it were easier to find, so more people would check it out.

“Beyond terrible service, only half of the dishes were good, half were inedible, very slow service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

We've been here twice & really wanted to like this restaurant. The first time was last summer, then again this summer. Both times the wait to get our food was really long. A long wait would have been forgivable if everything else was fabulous -which is was not - not even close. The service (& food) this year was beyond horrible! It took -forever- to get our food & the 'chef' couldn't or wouldn't make the simplest changes to any dish. Half of the dishes were good, half were terrible. One entree was completely forgotten to be placed by the waiter. I won't go into details of how bad it was, but we won't be back. What a shame, we really wanted to like it.

“Perfect Jerk for Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

As other reviewers have noted, the jerk is perfectly balanced -- a treat to break up a day on the beach.
