Best brunch in Williamsburg – The specials are always good. Great burger. Amazing pork tenderloin. Nice cocktails, long and affordable wine list, extensive selection of beer. It's all a little pricey, but you get what you pay for. Brunch is actually considerably cheaper, it seems. You'll still spend less than you would at Egg. The chef has a vision here. The only reason I don't go here more is because they only take American Express (which is like saying you don't take credit cards at all).
not returning here... – compliments to the chef, good food, especially the gnocchi and the pork chop. only complaint on the food were the portions, not very filling.
we were quickly seated and then waited almost an hour for our entrees. served one round of drinks when we first were seated and then didn't see our server again until it was time for the bill, which came quickly and was collected just as fast. the thing that bothered me was that the rest wasn't even very busy, empty tables to our right and left. service was simply horrid. i won't return and won't suggest to friends and family.
Best food in Williamsburg – One of the only "neighborhood joints" left in Williamsburg where the food is always consistent and the staff remembers your name.
good with caveats – I've been a regular for years, and the food has changed, but stayed pretty consistent. of note are the fried calamari, meats are their strong point: burgers, hanger steak, pork tenderloin. brunches are pretty light. great outdoor garden. HOWEVER, service isn't their strong point. i'm getting pretty tired of the argentine "owner" and his manners. he should be running a club not a restaurant. my husband and i came in waiting to be seated, when a couple of tarts hobbled up. the argentine sat them first and completely ignored us. if you can stomach watching him flutter about chatting up young chicks, your girlfriend or wife and can stand his dismissive attitude toward other customers than Sweetwater would be the perfect place to bring your hot date. what has become of a neighborhood when regulars don't count anymore?
Thank you, dinner was great – I just went here for the first time and we had the best meal ever. Calamari, mussels, steak frites - all creative, inspired, cooked to pefection and served attentively (ate at the bar - I know the bartender from another neighborhood spot, she gave perfect, attentive but respectful service.). We had amazing martinis too. My date was super impressed, so highly reccommended!.
Walked away hungry – I dined at Sweetwater previously and enjoyed my dining experience. This time though, I was thoroughly disappointed with the overall events of the evening. It was a special night and I was anticipating a good meal. First off, it took over 20 minutes for our appetizer to show up. The waitress did not make an effort to apologize for the wait or bring us bread which was given to every table surrounding us. Secondly, it took another 40 minutes for our entrees to arrive. Upon arrival, my cornish hen was RAW! Because the lighting was low, I had already taken a bite before I realized it was undercooked while the outside was burned. We had to work to get our waitress' attention before we could inform her of the mistake. I was extremely sickened by this and did not want a replacement entree. The asparagus that was served with the hanger steak was the bottom of the stalk which normally goes in the garbage. No management attempted to apologize for the long wait and the raw food. Finally, when we requested the check, the server disappeared so we left our money on the table and walked away hungry!
Best Steak! – The steak here is amazing, the staff is very efficient and friendly, the wine selection rocks and the ambiance works for a romantic dinner for two or a night with some friends
Stumbled onto this place the other day after a day of bike riding and looking for a light lunch. Since I?m a lover of variety and sharing, we decided on 4 appetizers: garlic shrimp, roasted avocado w/ tomatoes, provolone rice meatballs w/ sausage ragu, and arugula salad w/ pecans green apples, and camembert ? everything was delicious. I especially liked the back patio which gets plenty of sun and shade on a nice day. The only thing that was a bummer was that this place is cash only. O well, I?m definitely coming back to try other things on the menu.
great food, argentine owned so good wines, nice outdoor dining garden/patio – the place is this cozy, low lit place, with a very ecletic crowd. we had the mussles for appetizer, delicious with coconut based sauce. entrees were the burger on english muffin- good but nothing out of ordinary. duck breast was killer with feta cheese and grilled tomatoes. monk fish was awesome with some awesome greens. we had a bottle of mil piedras melbac from argentina, $35, and a lychee martini $10. the wine was great, the martini just okay. the flourless chocolate cake was awesome. 3 people ate and drank well for $55 each after tip and tax, and I was full and happy till the next morning! the place was very alive, I'm coming back. It was my first time in brooklyn/williamsburg and i'm coming back to this place for sure.
NICE STAFF! – The waitresses at Sweatwater are SURPRISINGLY nice for Williamsburg. They are all good at their job & seem comfortable & happy with where they work. It is such a refreshing change to have good food being served to you by the young, hip & trendy WITHOUT an attitude. Other restauranteurs in the neighborhood should send their waitstaff in there to observe! The food is great too!
