Reserved a table for 10 at this North Williamsburg restaurant so that our group would be near a music venue we were planning to go to. Even though we were late, the table was there waiting for us and the staff was very gracious. I had chosen the restaurant for the group and I was not disappointed. I chose it... More

We passed by a sunny sunday in April and found this fantastic garden in the back of the restaurant. Fantastic to sit there in the sun and enjoy brunch with icecold roséwine. Meny is good, food was good, service is allright and the atmosphere really nice!

I really love mussels, and when I find a place in New York that serve it I go there. And they were good. I didn't like is wine list, I took two bottles of white wine, one italian Pinot Grigio that was priced 38 and was really terrible, and a bad Muscadet priced 30$. Dont take it

THere are so many great restaurants in this area. Someone forgot to tell the Italian owner (he made sure we knew he was Italian, not a NYer) that nastiness and arrogance is best left at home. We ate at the bar and the bartender was very nice and friendly. THe food was ok, mussels, small and a tad chewy, the... More

It's above average but not "very good" either. TripAdvisor should include a middle "good" category. Decent place in Williamsburg for burgers or vegetarian food (the beets and goat cheese salad is excellent as is the quinoa burger). The place is always full and feels very local. It's a good window into the neighborhood. The bar is cool too. The service... More

Great Service, Ambiance, Food, Neighborhood, Value, Bar ... IMHO a must-visit if you are in Williamsburg. Have taken my parents, friends, dates here a few times - last time with the 'rents, we were pleasantly surprised by a free dessert on the house - the banana-oreo one - so. good. Thanks Sweetwater!

We came into Brooklyn for a concert later in the evening at the Music Hall so wanted to check out some local grub. So glad we chose Sweetwater - based on recommendations from friends. We sat at the bar and had food and some local beers. Must check out when in the neighborhood! I licked my plate clean! Please note... More

We happened into this restaurant after an art opening near by. It was a great place for a crowd with some looking to drink and some to eat (and a few did both). Really liked the Love Potion cocktail despite the name. It is a little awkward that they only take American Express (really?) but there was an ATM machine... More

As many people do, we were exploring a neighborhood, and just "happened in"- This was our third time back. -More refined than some of the other restaurants, in terms of menu and overall interior space,. Welcoming feeling and very decent wait staff. .If you wear a citronella bracelet you can enjoy the garden area for dinner-very eclectic crowd. You can... More

We ended here randomly, but stayed for a couple of glasses of wine and lunch. The mussels were good, and also the Sweetwater burger was nicely made. Standard prices. Slow service in the beginning, but the waitress we got when we sat down was doing a good job.
