I visited Alvin & Friends with friends and the ambiance was great. There was Caribbean music and the service was good. The food was good for the most part but my meal wasn't over the top. I had the duck breast and it was well seasoned but a bit dry. Someone from my group had the fried chicken and she didn't enjoy it. The oxtail was good though. In general it's a nice place to hang out with friends or your significant other.

In short, great food, great drinks, great atmosphere and great decor. Met the owner who greets all of his customers which is something you never really see. This is a place to visit and I will definitely visit again!!

Awesome place and food. I got to meet Alvin himself. He checked up on us to see how we were doing and then again to ask out opinion of the food. Nice guy.
