    Three cheese gnocchi, the sweetwater burger with bacon and truffle pecorino cheese and the red beet, kale, Gorgonzola salad were all soooooo good. Add that great staff and you got the perfect place

    The menu was so good. The calamari, the truffle fries, goat cheese bruschetta were our favorites. The sauces in particular made it stand out. We also got the steak frites & the burger

    Sweetwater's brunch takes the quality over quantity route, with only 6 or so choices (depending on specials) but everything is amazing. Go for the Eggs Benedict or the Egg Supreme

    What's not to love about this place? Bakeri bread, cheese plates, excellent salads, and a pretty satisfying beer/wine & cocktail list. The only catch: cash or Amex only. But there's a garden!

    The Sweetwater Burger with bacon might be the best burger in the city, but if you're looking for something a little lighter, try the Watermelon Salad, a refreshing take on the greek salad

    Banafi cake is that amazing- lamb burger is delicious, the mussels can easily be an entree and the sides are quite large so only get one unless you're sharing.

    Burger is on point, onion rings are tasty, bruschetta is good but non-traditional. They have a tasty house Amber on tap.

    I wanted to love this place as it’s a beautiful restaurant but we had 2 very average meals. I couldn’t even finish the lentil and chickpea stew and the chicken also wasn’t great.
