Normally I would give Pimenta 5 stars but I think they were a bit busy due to Mother's Day..the food wasn't as seasoned as it usually is. Had the Curry Goat and cabbage, it was still good but needed some salt and pepper.
Great food and truly enjoyed the energy of the restaurant.
The food was great and servers were really nice. It was a Friday night and very busy and only two people working the tables, it took an hour before we got our meal but we weren’t in a rush.
One of the owners, the wife, stopped at our table to share the history of the recipes. This was an excellent personal touch that also helped to calm us during our long wait!
Note: we have been here several times and never had a wait like we recently had so I think it was a rare occurrence.
Great food. Good lunch!
Went back with 4 for dinner. Absolutely worst service from the owner / manager / cashier / waitress - multi tasking
Delicious rum punch as sat down the nightmare began
Waitress came to get order the multitasking person pushed her out of way then some trouble with iPad
It took two hours to get appetizers after several times asking..
Finally got Jamaican beef patties were freshly made tasty and spiced perfectly Desperate for water refill. Finally after 30 minutes
Then no round of drinks came
3 hours dinner served
Delicious shrimp curry dish ok mamas chicken jerk and ok sandwich
Finally asked for check and many issues - then charged for drinks didn’t get. Finally finally all paid and left
The limited on street parking
The owners new Mercedes parked in front of restaurant taking a spot meant for customers
Take out only to get the yummy food
First time with this place and it was perfect! Food was delicious and staff were great!
Great restaurant. We enjoy visiting this place.
We ended up here on a Saturday night because everywhere else in town had 2+ hour wait times. It did not disappoint! Food was great. Drinks were strong. Staff was friendly. Highly recommend!
We enjoyed our experience! Lovely staff and delicious food. We were so delighted to find this restaurant in our local neighborhood. New favorite!
The restaurant is nice and cozy. The food was good. The service could be improved, server seemed to be upset the whole time and we were randomly advertised an event space they have there, uncalled for. Also server shouted from the register how we wanted the check, not great. The food saved the day
My wife and I have eaten at Pimenta about five times in the past year. We've always had a good meal and good service. Last night I took an out of town guest there for dinner. He's in the food industry, and is in the process of opening a restaurant in the Mosaic District. I value his opinion and he described the experience as wonderful, to include the food, service, and ambiance.
Service was great,background sound level was low which facilitated easy conversation, food was very good and the prices were reasonable. I would recommend it to friends.
Great curry chicken and jerk salmon. River beans and rice and peas were awesome too.
Great restaurant, the band was phenomenal, bartender was excellent, service was average but I definitely loved the restaurant and ambiance so my wife and I will be back for sure
Really great food and value!!
Really enjoyed our first time. If you live in FXBG and haven't been to Pimenta, you are missing out!
Absolutely fabulous! Food and service and atmosphere fantastic! The bread is the BEST period!!!!
