The food was good but the portions are smaller.
The food was excellent, the decor and chair can be upgraded now, it’s been around the block and you can see it..
Fried chicken and sides were good. Salmon was terrible. Service was spotty at best.
Great food, great staff and romantic atmosphere. Will definitely come here again
Thank you. We look forward to serving you again.
Our hostess was friendly and accommodating! Our waiter Tremaine was attentive helpful and friendly. Food was delicious so we ordered chicken wings to take home as well. Best chicken wings in New York. Can’t wait till live music is back. Thank y’all so much.
Thank you so much for the review. We are glad you enjoyed your visit. We hope to serve you again.
Server wasn’t attentive to us another server was more attentive food q
Everything was good. No issues
Great experience. Tee was great.
Trip to City with kids, what a fabulous way to end our day! Food was fresh & full of flavor. Service was outstanding and the outdoor space perfectly safe, yet special. Would highly recommend to anyone! Looking forward to going back to fully enjoy the Sunday Brunch menu!
I visited the Sugar Bar for a pre Valentine’s Day dinner, and it was delicious. We dined outside although inside dining was available, the weather was fairly decent and enjoyed the fresh air. There was adequate heating and covering which made the atmosphere cozy. We arrived a little early and was seated promptly. I ordered the fried catfish with macaroni & cheese, and collard greens. Everything tasted wonderfully and was seasoned just right. I ordered the calamari as an appetizer which was just ok, nothing spectacular about it. We also ordered the seafood pasta which was very good as well. For dessert we had the bread pudding and banana foster cake which was really sweet but delicious and decadent. Overall, I had a great time and the food was great.
Everything was great.
Everything was absolutely great and we will be back soon. The service was exceptional!!!
Outdoors so difficult to tell. Chicken was great.
Great food and great vibes
Great food, great staff. Definitely a regular stop when we travel to NYC.
Wonderful Outdoor brunch!! Loved it!! Thank you!!
Great food. Reasonably priced. Nice people.
Everything from top to bottom was good
Great drinks. Can’t sit and just have drinks, without ordering food. As told via server. But great spot.
great restaurant ad food was great. the service was just too long...no reason for food to take that long to prep especially on a "not so busy" night. I will definitely go to this place again. Hopefully next time service will be much faster.
Hi Raymond. We apologize for the slow service. I will bring this to the manager's attention. Thank you for giving us another shot. We look forward to seeing you.
Great food and great entertainment however tables are too close. You have to move the table to get up.
Thank you for the review. We like to share with our guests, that our tables are set in a family style seating. However if you would prefer to to sit separate from the other tables. You can make a request with hostess. We hope you will be back to visit again.
My 12 yr. old son and I were celebrating my husband's 50th birthday on a Wednesday evening. Little did we know that it was Motown night and my husband happens to be from Detroit so it was a perfect evening. The food was amazing! I had the stuffed shrimp with crabmeat appetizer and the lobster ravioli entrée special; my son had the fried chicken wings' appetizer and ribeye entrée; and my husband shared the wing appetizer with my son and had the fried pork chop entrée. Just delish! I had a few glasses of Malbec which was wonderful. Our server was excellent and the live band was divine. They wished my husband a happy birthday and a slice of cake with a candle was brought out. We couldn't have asked for a better evening! We can't wait to go back.
Hi Karen G. Thank you for the wonderful review. We are pleased that you and your family had a great time! Wednesdays have been full of fun. Please come join us again soon. Happy 50th Birthday to your Husband.
1- They had us packed in there like sardines (It was between shows at the nearby Beacon Theater) And
because of the tight seating we had to pay to check our coats.
2- The fried pork chop was too thick for my liking
3- The collard greens were not good and there was a giant collard leaf on my plate. We saw another
patron's plate of greens and it had many stalks
4- We had to wait a long time for the cornbread
5- Otherwise the staff was nice.
6- The catfish tenders/fingers were good
7- Did not like the veggie spring rolls.
Hi CardoratRosaMex, We are happy that you enjoyed our catfish fingers, and staff. We have a family style seating, so we like our guests to be comfortable, so we offer coat check, however it isn't mandatory. I will notify the chef about the collard greens. We apologize for any inconvenience we may have caused. We hope you will visit us again.
Very nice restaurant with good food, however the seating is a bit tight.
Hi Sandetter, we are happy you enjoyed the food. We have a family style seating. We apogogize if it was an inconvenience, we do hope you will visit again soon.
Valentines Day Eve
Hi Terri we are happy you had a great experience. Please visit again.
Had to wait an hour after my reservation time outside
We apologize for any inconvenience. We were changing shows. The first show went over it's time. We hope you will visit again so we can accommodate you.
Restaurant had a really great atmosphere and our waiter was very friendly and knowledgeable of the menu. We had a wonderful time!
My girlfriend and I came for dinner on Thursday’s Open Mic night. We got there about 30 mins before our reservation, so we could increase our chances of dining in the main room. We lucked out and got the last table! The food was absolutely amazing. We had the catfish fingers, I had the steamed shrimp and my girlfriend had the red snapper. It was all superb! The drinks were tasty and when the music started the vibe became 100% live. I absolutely cannot wait to go back! Maybe one day I’ll sing!
Hi Elijah! We'd love for you to come back and sing!!! We are happy you had a great time!
What a great find this restaurant was!! It’s a definite place that we will frequent whenever we are in New York.
The food was delicious. I had the crab stuffed tilapia. Hubby had the blacken catfish. Best tasting collard greens, cornbread and macaroni and cheese. True comfort food
The 4 piece jazz band was fantastic and an extra bonus.
Service was impeccable. Very attentive staff at all times.
Gina! Thank you so much! Glad you had a memorable experience! Please come visit us again soon.
The live music was fantastic. Food isn’t always good at where there’s music but the food is top notch at Sugar Bar. The hostess and table service were the best. Can’t wait to go back.
Suzanne we are so happy you enjoyed the music and the food!!! We hope you come visit us again soon!!
Very friendly environment. Great food and music. Wonderful staff
Great spot for jazz, small, as most jazz spots are, but energetic and lots of fun! And the food was delicious. Everyone at my table had something different - mussels, catfish, burgers - all seasoned and cooked well. Loved my mussels!
We left before the music started so it was not loud at all.
Loved the food- grilled blackened salmon and talapia stuffed with crab meat!
Good corn bread and we were also there in time for happy hour drink prices!
Definitely will go back!!
Absolutely marvelous and the perfect ambiance to celebrate our anniversary
The food was awesome, awesome, awesome at the Sugar Bar. Service was great we both had the whole red snapper, collard greens, I had plantains and my husband the Mac and cheese along with black beans and rice. The personalized performance singing “Happy Birthday “ to my husband and the others by Irina was amazing. We wish there was a Sugar Bar in our home town Atlanta. When we come back to NY you are on our list.
A thoroughly enjoyable night of music and surprisingly decent food for a music joint. The service was excellent. Although we didn’t have a reservation for the main room, Matilda did all she could to get us a table and she succeeded. We had a great table close to the stage, which was wonderful because my friend sang. Open mic night, Thursdays, is the bomb. We were seated next to the nicest people. The vibe and camaraderie is very cool and welcoming, and Miss Valerie Simpson, owner and acclaimed singer songwriter is approachable and gracious. A special shoutout to the bartender Shina ( spelling??) and her fabulous margaritas. We will definitely be going back.
Very good food, service and live music every night is awesome. A jewel.
Thank you for your review. We are really happy that you had a great time. Please come again.
We had a good time at The Sugar Bar.
Open mic night is always a good night to go !
Please come again soon. Thank you for your feed back.
My husband and I celebrated our 2 year wedding anniversary. We loved the atmosphere and the band was amazing.
Was there again last night to see Irini & the Jazz Mix. Great musical show. Really good middle American and Southern food and drinks at good prices. Excellent service and ambiance. SB has a varied and interesting clientele. Lynn and I met the Mayor of Johannesburg, Herman Mashaba, town for release of his new book, and several dancers from Irini's class at the Alvin Ailey Studio.
