Chicken and Waffles... Period.
Great food, good portions.
Mac n cheese was one of the best things on the menu
Enjoyed the food and very nice staff. Meatloaf was on point and try the candied yams.
Wonderful experience. Food was wonderfully spiced and large portions!
Chicken and waffles 🍗
Candied Yams were Delicious ;)
Fried Chicken with collard greens & Mac and cheese!!! Authentic soul food. Est 1962
Best soul food!
Lunch special plate is on point
My first chicken and waffles experience... I was not disappointed. Plus the collard greens were SO GOOD
Soul en directo, merece la pena y mucho esperar la cola para entrar!!!
Collard greens are a must. Skip the lemonade.
Gospel brunch is a nice experience; the singing is entertaining. Food is overrated -- southern fried chicken is dry.
Went for Thanksgiving meal and got some of the best southern food I've ever had. One of my new favorites for when I need to feed my soul...Lol
Best soul food, best food for the soul. B-B-Que Ribs and Fried Chicken were everything I dreamt they'd be.
Too expensive for fried chicken, not impressed
Bbq ribs and fried chicken. I love soul food.
No no. Go to the Red Rooster instead, much better quality. Unless you go for quantity, then Sylvia's offers more for less money
Food is AMAZING!!!! Chicken and waffles were beyond good!
One of the greatest disappointments of my life.
Such lovely staff. Had the chicken and waffle.
Let's start off by talking about the collard greens. So perfectly cooked. Then there's the mind blowing corn bread. I would come back for that alone. The fried catfish is crispy and flavorful.
Good service but the food was rather bland.
Fried chicken is great. Ribs are disgusting. Seriously, so bad.
Fried chicken. Mac & cheese. Everything. Except the red velvet cake.
There are more toilets downstairs
Average food, nothing special
Super special Sylvia's ribs and chicken has been great for us! Good solution for a tasty dinner in Harlem!
The fried chicken is amazing
Fried chicken of course (go for the dark meat). Cant go wrong with any if their sides. And the chicken livers are a must try!
chicken n waffles
Oh my Lord, this is the best non-homemade Mac and cheese I've ever had.
I just enjoyed the BEST meal I've had since arriving in New York. They do it right at Sylvia's. That's why they have the brand they have. #SoulFood
Hated it. If you have lived in the south and KNOW how southern food tastes..this will be a disappointing experience.
An unique and delicious tradicional food experience At Harlems!
The food is AMAZING!!! Real traditional southern cuisine. I had the meatloaf, collards, mac n cheese,garlic mash potatoes and catfish fingers. OMGosh DELICIOUS!!!! Can't wait to go back
Great fried chicken, subpar waffles. Friendly service and a surprising array of cocktails on the menu.
EAT YO CORNBREAD
The fried chicken was slap yo momma good! Get the greens and the mac and cheese but stay away from the cakes. The cake was so dry it tastes like dirt!
Celebrity and special occasion clients turn to chef Sylvia Woods’ catering services for bread and banana pudding, behemoth cobbler pans, and more.
The constantly packed eatery serves caters to locals and tourists seeking some of the most lauded mac and cheese and Sunday comfort lunch fare in the city.
Go for the meatloaf, it's so good.
Love this place!!! The service is excellent and friendly, and the fried chicken with waffles is to die for!!! Super good!
I recommend Sylvia’s World Famous Barb-B-Que Ribs & Fried Chicken with 2 side orders and a cocktail
I always stop here when visiting NYC......get the banana pudding...it's amazing!
Always the best soul food in Harlem!!!! Never disappoints despite others preferences/comments/reviews.
AMAZING Soul food. Left feeling satisfied.
Fried chicken on point
