“Great atmosphere and food”
Reviewed August 26, 2014

What an improvement over my last review. The scallop dish was spectacular with 4 scallops this time instead of the meagre 2 on our last visit. This cafe has definitely upped the ante. They were really nice to us and honored a 4 year old gift certificate which had mysteriously surfaced in our house! Service could still use some work as nobody took any interest in us as we arrived and there was quite a line at the door before anybody came to help us (2 people behind us actually left) and drinks were really slow coming but, some people like it slow, they think it adds to the whole leisurely experience. Every dish we had was wonderful.

“Consistently excellent”
Reviewed August 25, 2014 via mobile

Great ambience given a little crowded due to its popularity
Food is uniformly superb... There is no bad choice. Scallops simply prepared and not obscured by gloppy sauces.
Reasonably priced for ny prices but well deserved

“Still one of the best on the Vineyard”
Reviewed August 21, 2014

Friends were visiting from the south, and they had heard the Sweet Life was a "must do" place on the Vineyard, so to make sure we had reservations..we called about two months ahead. We called again yesterday afternoon to confirm, and were assured we had a table for four. When we arrived..nothing in the system. (hint..always take a printed confirmation of your reservation with you on the Island...it's the only way to make sure someone's snafu denies you a table). That was the only tense moment of the evening..the rest was delightful. Very friendly and prompt service, an involved wait staff, an interesting menu and delicious food all around. The outdoor seating is the best...in a courtyard, tucked behind hedges. It's an upscale place (note to parents..if you're going to take your teenage kids out to dinner, have them dress in something other than a bathing suit and t shirt will ya?) but the atmosphere is comfortable. All four appetizers and entrees for our party, and the desserts, met approval from our group. We'll go back again for sure.

“Absolutely the best”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

ON our last trip to Martha's Vineyard we ate in five different restaurants. Sweet Life was by far the best. Service was friendly and efficient. The menu was full of delightful selections. The presentation was the best as weas the food.
