Friends were visiting from the south, and they had heard the Sweet Life was a "must do" place on the Vineyard, so to make sure we had reservations..we called about two months ahead. We called again yesterday afternoon to confirm, and were assured we had a table for four. When we arrived..nothing in the system. (hint..always take a printed confirmation... More

ON our last trip to Martha's Vineyard we ate in five different restaurants. Sweet Life was by far the best. Service was friendly and efficient. The menu was full of delightful selections. The presentation was the best as weas the food.

Not many things in Martha's Vineyard can compare to the Sweet Life Cafe . Happened upon it by accident in Oak Bluffs and was pleasantly surprised at how good the food was. The wait staff is nice and the atmosphere was relaxing. You will not be disappointed stopping here for a bite to eat at night. Just make sure to... More

During many previous visits to Oak Bluffs, we had cherished memories of "wonderful food and a refined atmosphere" while the café was under previous ownership. Despite this anticipation, our evening was marred by an unfortunate event while waiting to be seated and subsequent rude treatment by the... More

Obama eats here. And I think its worth the trip. Great food, and gracious service. Best (maybe only) formal service restaurant in Oak Bluffs.

Little haven on Circuit Avenue. Lovely outdoor setting, beautifully lit. But having just eaten at the Chilmark Tavern and State Road the food was sadly unexceptional. So it was ultimately disappointing. Better just to sit and have a drink and enjoy the atmosphere.

We have been meaning to try this restaurant for years and made advance reservations to ensure we finally experienced the Sweet Life. The space is quite lovely and that is the only thing exceptional about the place. The service at the local breakfast spot on Circuit Avenue is more friendly and attentive than the service we received in this place--... More

Service was poor and the food only average. not sure what happened to the chef from last year, but we were disappointed in the quality of the food and the staff seemed overwhelmed with the demands of the customers
