Went to Hibiscus with my wife and another couple. The food was very good and the ambience was homely. This restaurant is in a small Best Western in Morristown, but you did not get the big hotel restaurant feel. There was a a musician singing and playing the piano, he sang different genres and he was good. I think he is there every Saturday from 7pm to about 9:30pm. The wait staff was very attentive and catered to our very need. The only set back for me was no Internet access was available. But I went there for the food not to surf the internet (just wanted to check in on Facebook, to give a shout out for the restaurant). The fare was a good mix of Caribbean and American dishes. My wife is already thinking of whom we can get to go back here. We highly recommend this restaurant.

I have been wanting to check out this restaurant for a few months, and finally got around to it. First of all, I was told that the restaurant is pretty much in a basement conference room of a hotel, and that was exactly right. The restaurant looks like a old conference room that the hotel used to use, complete with the drop ceilings and the conference room chairs. But that made absolutely no difference to me. The service was fantastic. Our server, Toni, was attentive, friendly, funny, and just overall a great server. Our appetizer of Fried calimari with scotch bonnet peppers were your normal fried calimari appetizer, with a little bit of spice. But then came the main course, which was outstanding. I had the jerk chicken with vegetables, rice, fried plantains, and festival (their version of a johnny cake). My date had the seafood and pasta dish, and she enjoyed it immensely

This was our second time at Hibiscus. It's tucked away in a lovely hotel but it is not a hotel restaurant. Anything but. Dining here is a bit like taking a mini Caribbean vacation. When you walk into Hibiscus you feel as if you've entered a unique place; cool ambiance, great live jazz courtesy of Tracie George. But the star of the show is the food. Almost all of the great Carribean dishes are represented here: roti, curry, jerk spice, tamarind and more. Save room for their excellent bread pudding. This time I had oxtail in wine sauce with accompaniments including fried plantain. My wife had tamarind salmon. Both excellent. They have a full cocktail and wine menu. Our experience was heightened by our delightful server Toni. Sweet and funny, giving dish recommendations, checking ingredients and patiently answering all our questions, as well as special requests. Always respectful. Her service was impeccable. This is a restaurant that appreciates your business and heightens the dining experience by their excellence of their cuisine, atmosphere and service. Highly recommended.
