My business associate and I came for dinner after reading reviews on TA. We were not disappointed. The hostess remembered our names and addressed us by name whenever she passed the table. I have never experienced this before and appreciated the attention. The food was excellent. Fish was fresh and portions were large. I had a red snapper with vegetables... More

Waited for over 2 hours when promised the buffet. Buffet was broken down and THEN we were seated and after the seating they wanted to move us after a e hour wait. No one offered a discount or an apology for the lack of service. Left STARVING. PLEASE DO NOT ATTEMPT.

Arrived with reservation and waited 1 hour to be seated. Waiter was unsympathetic and could not answer questions about menu.

If you are overnight on a layover at JFK and staying on "hotel row", the Door is a great little gem of a restaurant. Authentic Caribbean, nice Jerk Chicken... and Red Stripe. Prices are also very reasonable and staff is friendly. It is about a 10 minute taxi or Uber ride.

Thank wcdoering
