Sylvia's was a pleasant surprise in the city when I was on vacation. It's more southern American food but beyond amazing. Their catfish bites were yummy, along with the Mac and Cheese and corn bread. Sweet tea was really one of my favorites. It's more grandma's cooking, than something high class.

When I visit NYC from the DC area I always make sure I stop by here! The food is great! The portion sizes are huge as well. Great value for your money!

When you are in New York you must venture up to Sylvia's in Harlem for some of their famous fried chicken! Nicest fried chicken I've ever had

Good atmosphere here and the food was nice and satisfactorily priced considering the fame of the restaurant. Service was friendly and meal won't leave you feeling hungry! Worth having a crack at to get a feel for the area.
