At first waitress was on point telling us the bar was busy as soon as our drinks were ready she would bring them over. She took our appetizer order with the drink order. We gave her our dinner order when she apologized about the bar being busy. All our food came out at once. No in between time for food to digest a little.

Order was not correct. Drink sat at bar for some time. Had to ask for a manager to get things right. He was very accommodating.

At an early seating, Server (Jose) took more than 20 mins to get drinks. While seated in bar area there was a crash of broken glasses behind bar. I ordered soup for appetizer and they brought it out with the meal after waiting another 40/45 mins. It wasn’t even crowded yet.
Food tasted good but it was stressful to get service.

I came here with my sister and some friends on a Friday night. Our server Claudia was very attentive and friendly. She is an excellent server and provided great service. Our food was good also. However the hosts were quite rude and refused to show me to my already seated party. They told me I should look around myself even though I had a reservation. They should have looked on their computer to locate the party and then should have brought me over to the table.

We love our local BB; however on this trip with friends we experienced three issues. 1) a simple Mojito took forever (like 20 minutes); 2) I ordered the new Tequila Salmon dish and it came out with tilapia instead (how’s that happen); 3) there was an up charge on our check for the tilapia which I didn’t order in the first place and our waitress didn’t even catch it. Did I mention correcting the dish from tilapia to the proper salmon dish took until almost everyone else was finished eating? And the portion when it came out looked like a child’s portion. Hope things are back to usual the next time.

This was my first time at Bahama Breeze. We were a largish party (10 people, including an infant). Service was excellent throughout (thanks, Alexa!). The first thing that stood out in the menu is the number of pages dedicated to various cocktails and long drinks. All the adults tried some and several were good. We tried empanadas and tostones for appetizers, and those were great. The main dishes varied. My recommendation is to stick to items with a "Latin" flavor. E.g., I had the stuffed plantain and it was wonderful. My wife's salmon, on the other hand, was quite bland (not bad per se, but nothing great).

Good place for family. Ran into an old friend. We will continue to come because of convenience to movie theater and good selection of dishes.

Unbelievable! I made this reservation online, I called to confirm and spoke to a female manager, and when I show up today I’m turned away from the door and told that the restaurant has been bought out by some company. When I told the person sending people away at the front door that I made a reservation and that I confirmed it with a female manager I was told “not today you didn’t this is been booked forever” Happy birthday to me, so unprofessional. How do you not know that you can’t take my reservation, how do you allow people to make a reservation online when you know this is coming. What a joke!

Well the open table reservation app was definitely a plus, and we were immediately seated upon arriving at the restaurant. The server seemed new and wasn’t the best, but we made due.

Servers are in need of basic training here. Our server messed up a gluten free request, had entrees delivered with salad/appetizers, and then proceeded to spill a drink down my back. He never checked on us after our food arrived. Very poor service ruined the entire meal.

I am from West Indian decent, and in no way would I consider that food West Indian. I would say it was more Key West. That being said, the flavor was not all that good. The black beans were soupy, the steak was over cooked, though I asked for a rare steak. My wife requested the Salmon was fine but not seasoned well. The drinks were great and the live music was enjoyable. It was not a terrible place, but expected more flavor in the food. Our server was great and very friendly.

Made online reservations at 7pm. and still had to wait 15 minutes due to large number of arriving patrons. It should be policy to seat reserved clients first if they are on time.

Would have given this visit more than 3 stars but our server was not very attentive. Also they were out of an ingredient for the dish that someone in my party wanted. Another friend and I ordered the mango jalapeño martinis and they were not hot/spicy at all 😕

Went for lunch with a group of co-workers. The table was ready and the drink order was taken right away. We had a very good waitress who checked on us often, brought refills of drinks, took orders quickly, and overall, we had a very nice time with very good food. We will do it again. Let me just recommend the seared tuna salad. Excellent!
