The services was great the waitress was very attentive. The food came out in a timely manner hot and fresh. It was well seasoned the portions were perfect, just right to leave you wanting more. Can’t wait to come back to explore the menu more.

I was waited on by Mateo. I was struggling between getting the lamb chops & the oxtails, & he recommended the jerk lamb chops. My sides were the mac & cheese & yams & a side of corn bread. Everything was amazing taste wise. I did have to send my lamb chops back because they weren't well done, so he asked them to cook them a bit longer. I personally just prefer for my meat to be well done at any restaurant. I never made a fuss about it & appreciate that they took them to finish cooking them. The wait wasn't long at all, & when they came back to me they were PERFECT! I was there alone for my selfcare date night, but the ambiance of the place was on point & had to tell a few people about this restaurant especially friends that have significant others for their date nights. Cool vibe! I'm definitely trying the oxtails when I come back! Thank you all for the great service, it really did make my night as I was having a hard time prior to coming in!💜💜💜

We came in after reading reviews about how amazing the food is but the service left a lot to be desired. I also saw that the wait times for food was really long. That was NOT our experience. We were immediately greeted and seated, Mari, our server, immediately came over to introduce herself and take our order. Our appetizers were staggered perfectly. As soon as we finished one, the next was brought out. Y’all! Do yourselves a favor and try those empanadas, deviled eggs and shrimp tacos. They were scrumptious! I ordered the beef short ribs, Mac and cheese, and collard greens for my dinner. The beef fell off of the bone and the collards were perfectly seasoned. The Mac was a little too cheesy for me, but they were very flavorful. I highly recommend giving Jordyn’s in Hyde Park a try. Oh, don’t forget to BYOB.

Me and my wife went in tonight. First of all the place is small but we're greeted by the hostess who is super nice then we're seated and let me tell you everything on the menu is FYE. people you gotta try this place the food is Great!!! My only complaint is the place is small. Oh and they don't have a liquor license but you can BYOB and I believe they serve it to you. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ from me. 👍🏾
