Waitress thought it was hilarious my dining companions were covered in waste water piped on the patio. She asked if we saw a rat and said, "hey it's Toronto." No apologies or sympathy. Will not return
Don't sit on the patio if don't want to get sprayed with brown pipe water.
I'm from the US and grew up on soul food. It wasn't what I expected and I wasn't a fan. It was a pretty good vibe though.
Staff funny and super nice. Food to die for! Just don't ask for coffee because you'll be disappointed.
Chicken & waffle
Great vibe, food, graffiti, but the staff while friendly dished out some of the worst service ever! We waited 20 mins for water! And for our order to be taken! And it was a Tuesday - not a busy night.
The patio is intimate and cozy! Perfect for a date! The food and the service is wonderful, we're gonna have our ladies night there twice a month now💟
Love the Vibe!! Great food great staff great music!!!
Slow service but good food. Especially the chicken and waffles and the ribs.
chicken and waffles was amazing !
Great vibe... the live music on a Saturday night coupled with a great crowd and hearty food, you ate bound to have a great evening!
Fried Chicken & Waffles. Excellent service. Food tasted great. Then we saw a cockroach on the wall beside our table. Yep, A COCKROACH! The server had to kill it. Pretty much lost my appetite after.
Service is slow
the fried chicken and waffles were the best meal I've ever had
Try the Jerk Chicken Sandwich, with sauce & Sweet Potato Fries...plus some Guava Juice!
cajun catfish salad was quite good, fresh fish.
Great food, horrible service. The candied plantains and jerk chicken are worth the long wait times and rude wait staff though. Only go if you have the patience and tolerance to wait.
Amazing atmosphere, music and good! Had the short ribs so yummy!
The mac and cheese is for grown people.
Their braised beef short ribs are delicious and you HAVE to get the Mac n cheese
Love the appetizers, Jerk Chicken Quesadilla's and Catfish Lafayettes.
Order the Southern-fried Chicken and Waffles, so good!
the southern fried chicken with mac n cheese is a must...!
Get the fried plantain. It's like eating cotton candy
Harlem has great ambience and on Friday and Saturday nights usually boast talented performers. My only complaint are the portion sizes. The queen St location gives a heartier portion for your buck.
I had the Chicken and Waffles and did not really enjoy that they put a red chilli sweet pepper sauce on the chicken.
Cornbread is a yummy starter and the fried chicken with mac and cheese are delicious!
Fantastic food, great atmosphere. Service needs work but I'll definitely visit again. Favorites from the family style menu: jerk chicken quesadilla, jambalaya and catfish étouffée. Try the pork hock!
Great live music upstairs. Quiet, understated main floor. Like.
Zimzum holds court on saturdays and it is awesome. That is all.
Love the atmosphere but don't order the rice & beans if you're vegetarian; I found outat the lastminute that pork is in the dish. (full disclosure within the menu would have been appreciated.)
the Harlem hustle cocktail is very drinkable and tropical. great drink to explore the snack menu
