Small attractive restaurant featuring Jamaican cuisine. We ordered meat and vegetable pattys which were good. I had jerk chicken and it was very good. My wife ordered grouper which tasted fishy. She orders it elsewhere and knew immediately it was not fresh. The service was average at best. The staff seemed to be preoccupied with setting up tables for reservations... More

We were vacationing in Cape May and we were looking for a place to eat in Ocean City. I happened to see good reviews for Mosaic 701 and we figured we would try it out. I am not a big Salmon dish lover, it was a special and the waitress spoke so highly of it that I had to give... More

Service and kitchen can both be a little slow at times because everything is made to order, so don't expect a quick in and out type of experience. It is worth the wait though. The place itself is small but very clean, bright, and has a comfortable temperature. There is also outdoor seating. The food is incredibly fresh and well-seasoned.... More

This is already on our list but decided to try takeout so we could have our glass of wine at home. Great quality food. Owners are very proud of what they have and keep quality and service very high.

Heard good things about this place. Went there with some good friends for dinner and had a terrific time. The owner and her staff were terrific. Very friendly and attentive. The food selection was very nice, and in particular, the jerk pork with rice was excellent. Not too spicy for those who steer away from jerk dishes. Lots of good... More

The best of Island flavors were served up in light speed as our party of 8 had a show to catch. Don't miss the home made beverages , especially the ginger beer ! All of our dishes were plentiful , beautifully presented and full of fresh flavor. We will return!

This is a must for anyone in love with Caribbean food. The Jerk Pork is out of sight spectacular and I would imagine that you wouldn't go wrong with any of the choices on the menu. The staff is friendly and the service is prompt. This is my new favorite in OC!

Are you tired of Boardwalk pizza and fries? Then this is the place you're looking for. My wife and I had the jerk chicken and jerk pork and it was not only the best Caribbean meal we've had since going to the islands, but it was the best meal in general that we had the whole time during our trip...

The food was truly delicious. The fish tea was the best cup of soup I have ever had. It was full of complex flavors. Everyone in the restaurant was enjoying and raving about their dishes.

Chef Herb Allwood and his wife Pamela Womble opened 701 mosaic in August 2008 to present an exciting array of old and new world flavors and showcase their passion for Caribbean and Mediterranean cuisine. They successfully created an upscale yet warm and welcoming bistro in what was once an abandoned pizza parlor in Ocean City's North End. The team also received a 2008 Beautification Award from the City of Ocean City for their renovation of the property. 701 Mosaic operates seasonally from May to October and looks forward to your next visit.
