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

The Sweet Life Cafe is hands down the best restaurant in the island of Martha's Vineyard. The setting is lovely in the town of Oak Bluffs. You have the option to sit inside or out underneath a tent in a lovely garden setting. The staff is courteous, knowledgeable and passionate about their restaurant and Chef. The menu offers wonderful dishes... More

We were taking a cursory look at the menu out front when Alex blithely appeared to speak about his cuisine....upon first bite of the beets & burrata pre-app it was clear he was far too modest.....outstanding experience from first course through last with service & ambience to match.

This restaurant had fabulous menu, wine list and great service. It is quaint and small so better suited for small adult groups or couples. Had wonderful tuna tartar and green salad. Scallops & sea bass were also delicious. Service was attentive. Wine list was great. Highly recommend - sit outside if possible!

Sweet Life never ceases to impress. We started with cocktails on the covered patio and moved inside for dinner. The food was outstanding. I can recommend the stripped bass. The period home that the restaurant operates out of is charming, giving patrons a feel for summer living on Martha's Vineyard in the 1900s. Just a great treat to dine there!

We wanted to have a special dinner on the last night of our vacation. We chose Sweet Life. While there is a nice outdoor eating area, we ate indoors. Our table was beautifully set, and pleasant music set a nice mood. Our waiter, Jose, was experienced and knowledgeable. He made good recommendations too. I ordered the halibut in a classic,... More

This past weekend we went to Sweet Life in OB. It had long been a favorite for both food and atmosphere. BUT this year the chef is just FANTASTIC! Every dish of our table of 5 was virtually licked clean. I had the Sea Scallops and Stuffed Squash Blossoms as an entree and it was beyond delish! Highly recommend.
