We hosted our Wedding Dinner/Reception at Sweet Life on September 17th. The service was amazing, everyone went out of their way to make my wife and I feel like the most important guests there. The ambiance is so romantic and perfect for couples and larger groups. I would recommend this restaurant to any guests coming to the Island. A big... More

We were seated outside on a wonderful cool evening. We started with first class oysters and moved on to scallops and duck. Really great compositions on the plates and attentive waitstaff. Also enjoyed their wines by the glass. Definitely would return.

Creative dishes in a nice patio area or a cute indoor area. I believe it is a old house. Great attentive service, everything was perfect!

I had dinner there with my wife and was disappointed. Although the setting was very nice the food was mediocre and very expensive. We both had duck which was served very rare and was tough and tasteless. The bread was great.

We went here for our mini honeymoon and were not disappointed. At the entrance, the restaurant is very unassuming. It is a lively, casual place with nothing special in terms of decor. But what it lacks in decor it makes up for in food. The food was absolutely delicious. My wife got the special which was short ribs and shrimp... More

Some of the food was excellent, some mediocre. A very pleasant but scattered and ultimately not great server. Sweet Life has been a summer treat for many years but after last night's disappointing and very expensive dinner may have ended that tradition. The squid ink pasta with shrimp was very good, as were the beets and burrata. The heirloom tomato... More

This is a very special restaurant. Each dish is prepared individually and the flavors are crafted to perfect the bite. We had a large party of 5. I had the rack of lamb which was grilled to perfection and served with braised carrots and vegetables in a special sauce. My husband had fish served in a delicate broth and my... More

We went with friends and sat outside on the patio, which is under a pretty white tent with soft white lights. The food was delicious, and the service was spot on. My oysters were life-changing. And, I loved the tuna tartare and the duck. It was a really great night at Sweet Life.

Went to Sweet Life on a Saturday night & luckily the timing was right and they were able to fit us in. I had the duck, which was just ok, too chewy for my taste and not enough sauce. My friend had the lamb and he said it was just ok too, not a lot of meat which happens with... More

Pretty outdoor seating and nice service. Halibut and scallops were great. But duck and lamb were disappointing--both too tough. At those high prices, disappointed.
