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.

Limited menu but was very good. Lovely setting sitting outside. Expensive but we found that to be true at most upscale restaurants whether in Oak Bluffs or Edgartown. Located on a touristy street but once inside, it felt quiet.

The Sweet Life is the favorite restaurant of President Obama, and for good reason! The food, ambiance and service we are spectacular. We had the Oysters, a warm Peach Salad and Scallops for dinner. Alex was very accommodating in getting us a reservation! I would definitely return any time I'm on the Vineyard.

So, we went here for our anniversary. We found out about this place after we ate dinner. They had a very delicious cheesecake with a peach compote and bellini sauce. We had it with coffee. The coffee was wonderful. Unfortunately we weren't offered any refill.

The Sweet Life was a lovely dining experience that we almost missed. We had reservations at Red Cat but the power went out on their street and they neglected to call us (although they said they notified everyone with a reservation). At 9pm we were stuck trying to find a nice place to eat. Luckily there was room at The... More

We were glad to eat inside as it was a vey has mid night and the AC was welcomed. We had a great rose Sancerre and started with the local oysters which... More

Got the recommendation from a local and we were very glad we went with it. We are 4 and 5 star travelers and this was definitely up that alley. I have NEVER gotten the chicken dish off the menu, you know it, the one they put on there for people who can't find anything to order.. The chicken under a... More
