An engagement party and the host, with the best intentions choose items that we very middle of the road. They could have been good but they were not hot. The room and service were lovely.

We enjoyed dinner at Sweet Lorraine's on a Saturday night. Despite the small size of the restaurant, we were able to be seated immediately. We ordered calamari rings and cheese curds as a starter. Both were excellent. I especially enjoyed the peanut sauce with the rings. Mushroom truffle Mac and cheese is outstanding. Portions were generous. We took food home... More

We've been here a few times and do enjoy the specials. But we find them to be a bit pricey. The place is dark inside and could use a good scrub down-and some renovations!

I have been to Sweet Lorraine's several times since I used to live in that area. I usually went for dinner with a couple of friends. Love the atmosphere there. Their Calamari is always one of my favorite dish, especially with the spicy sauce. Definitely worth a try if it's your first time there.

My husband and I love this place. It never disappoints. We always do the call ahead seating. The food is amazing, try the Cesar salad! Great drinks and yummy desert too. 9 out of 10 times the service is spot on.

We went here with a group of 10...we couldn't have been happier. Part of our group was visiting from Sweden...and they loved it. The food was fantastic. The service was great. If we were back in this area we would definitely eat here again. Ended up with a couple of drinks, appetizers, dinners, dessert and tip-about $35/person. Not bad at... More

Good food, Great service, Reasonably priced. The upstairs seating allows you to look down over the restaurant which can be a nice diversion, but is not easy accessible for anyone physically challenged. Salads are always creative and fresh. The main dishes are flavorful, and the carrot cake is outstanding. You can not go wrong dining here.

We hadn't been to sweet lorraines in quite a few years and frankly after this experience it'll be several more .The atmosphere is great........the server we had was very rushed and rude. I don't expect to have my drink and meal plopped down on the table and have the server act like he's having the worst night of his work... More

Time after time, you can't beat it! The food is outstanding starting with the bread and dipping sauce. I enjoyed the twisted Cobb salad for the 1st time, but everything I ever had here has been very good (crab cake with avacado, Kobe beef burger, farmhouse quiche with potato crust, etc). Truly unique though is the Scottish pudding dessert, don't... More
