Had a solo dinner here. It was my first time at La Caye and I was anticipating an exciting experience after hearing so many good reviews.  As a Haitian American, who grew up eating Haitian food everyday, the food was just OK


- I was able to walk in with no waits.

- The decorum is inviting, yet subtle.

- The Sangria was delicious.

- The pikliz (spicy pickled cabbage/carrots) is delicious and helped pop the flavors of the red snapper a bit. 

- The side of green plantains was fried perfectly, not too dry or oily. 

- The service was excellent.


-The black mushroom rice was a little bland and not as hearty as it typically can be. 

-The Red Snapper's sauce was also a bit bland considering it was garnished with peppers/onions.

- Overall the food took a long time to be delivered. 

I'll quite possibly come here again to try their brunch and soups options.
