Interesting and delicious

There are always unique specials with fresh ingredients and many vegetarian options at this charming independent restaurant. I have trouble picking what I want for lunch. Everything is consistently good. No matter what, save room for dessert and make a reservation!

My wife found her choice of Salmon Nicoise to be delicious as was my New York strip steak, cooked to a perfect medium rare. The accompaniments were also excellent. Topped off with an absolutely awesome server, made for a very special evening.

The menu choices are great. I chose the seafood dish. It was fresh and very tasty. The portion was more than enough. The dessert tray was great. More than ten choices. I chose the Carrot Cake. The slice was so large , I had to take half of it home to eat later.

My first time at Sweet Lorraine's wasn't too long ago and after this visit, it certainly won't be my last. My boyfriend and I went for a date night and we both got the lobster mac and cheese and it was quite possibly one of the most delicious things I've ever had. It was creamy, full of lobster, and just... More

Really fun and funky decor. Great wait staff. We split 4 dishes, which were all delish: Gem Wedge Salad, Wild Mushroom & Goat Cheese flatbread, Avocado crab BLT, BLT mac & cheez. The desserts looked amazing, but unfortunately we were too full.

We are never disappointed when we eat here. If you are visiting Troy, this is one of your must stop restaurants. This is a "foodie" restaurant. If you get to meet Lorraine...you will immediately know why you taste so much love in her food.

They've been here for a long time. The menu is a bit more adventurous than similar places. There are always vegetarian options. Plenty of choices of beer and wine. Can get noisy.
