Very friendly staff, nice atmosphere, good wine menu & wonderful desserts. I would highly suggest the banana bread or brownie sundaes.

After having dinner at a popular restaurant in Armory Square we decided to try Bittersweet after hearing such wonderful reviews. We weren't disappointed. The server was very friendly and the desserts were delectable. I would recommend this nice place.

My boyfriend and I went here for a late dinner and had a fabulous time. The room had dimmed lights and it was very cozy. Nothing fancy, so don't go here if you're looking for fine dining. The food tasted great, and their desserts even better! I thought it was a great place to go for a date and cant... More

There are a number of tables along the wall and a long bar . There were a couple of couples , one party of 8 and... More

Limited food options but terrific desserts and wines. Liked the wine options - can order wine as a tasting (2 oz), glass (5oz), or bottle.

Overall the food experience while in Syracuse has been disappointing, so last night when we came across Bittersweet while walking after an "okay" dinner we had a fabulous experience! The Flourless Chocolate Cake was hands down the best I've ever had. Creamy, light, smooth, rich chocolate cake melting in the mouth, served with an airy whipped cream and strawberries lightly...

Bittersweet is a tiny place that's hard to find, though it's just half a block off Salina, the main street, downtown Syracuse. I like the classy wine-bar interior and the wall decor--photos of their desserts, "posed" at various local places. The desserts are beautiful, beautifully presented, and big.
