Great service and food, a bit expensive. That's why it's a special occasion place.

Amazing Anniversary Dinner
My wife and I came to Sweet Waters for our anniversary on a suggestion from some close friends. Upon being seated at what the server told us was the best seat in the house, right up front, he gave us a detailed explanation of the entire menu and suggested items we had to try. We started out with an assortment of oysters and clams, which were all phenomenal, especially the Kumomoto's. For our entrees, Greg, our server, convinced me to try the dry age sirloin while my wife had the Chilean sea bass. Both were OUTSTANDING. Although we were stuffed, he surprised us with a molten chocolate tower with a candle for our special day, on the house. We couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Best in the Area!
In short, it is one of the BEST restaurants in the area. It is definitely a special occasion place for the family or friends and a great 'date night' place for busy parents looking for a night off. The food was incredible, the wine list wonderful and the service is first rate. It's convenient for me, but even if I had to travel, It is so worth it!!

One of the best meals all year!
I'm not a big meat lover which made the outstanding veal chop that much more of a wonderful treat. It was made exactly as I asked, and was juicy and full of flavor from the first until the last bite - which I had two days later since I couldn't finish it at the time it was served. I loved my appetizer - the Cesar salad, flavorful, with shredded fresh cheese & croutons & a dressing that did not over power. I couldn't eat dessert since I chose to fill up on the incredible rolls accompanied w soft, creamy butter that were served before the meal. However the 8+ inches high chocolate cake, which two of my fellow diners shared looked like a slice of heaven.

Best Restaurant in Westfield
Second time here, first time was on Mothers Day. This visit was just as good if not better.
Was a late lunch so we ordered off the dinner menu. Appys included iceberg wedge, onion soup, and colossal shrimp, all being delicious. I had dry aged sirloin, it was cooked to a perfect medium rare, and it melted in my mouth ! Girlfriend was in the mood for a burger, she fell in love with it ! Ice cold martinis, and a reasonably price bottle of Pinot Noir completed the meal. The very friendly staff are a well oiled machine. I would strongly recommend this place, based on two very positive experiences.

First time here with my boyfriend and had a great meal. Treated as if we had been there many times as our server was very helpful with helping us order. For appetizers, we split the crabcakes and mussels, and for dinner we split the porterhouse for two. Excellent drinks as well.
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Worth the trip!
Excellent food! No complaints except I thought it was a bit pricey for a neighborhood restaurant...Manhattan price range. However, the cost of the wine was reasonable...roughly a 50% mark-up from retail.

I took my girlfriend here
I took my girlfriend here for her birthday and everything was wonderful. The food, the staff, the atmosphere - all great. We left smiling and with full bellys! Thanks for everything!

Date Night With Hubby
Finally got a night away from the kids and came to Sweet Waters for the first time in many years. Glad we did because everything was great, especially the Mojitos :) Food, service and ambiance all two thumbs up. My husband only eats rib-eyes and loved the cowboy steak. We won't wait that long to go back.

A very good steakhouse for the area
Celebrated a birthday dinner with our children and found it to be a very pleasant experience. The drinks were excellent-the martinis poured from individual shakers - a classy move whenever we see it. Our apps were very good - the "colossal" cold shrimps are truly colossal.Two of us had the porterhouse for two, the others, filet mignons. All were tasty and well-cooked but obviously not Prime and we wonder why - especially at those prices. Carrot cake, coffee for desserts were very good. We certainly will return.

The food was very good and would definitely have me come back but most of all we were very impressed by how accomodating and friendly the manager and waiter staff was. This was our first time at the restaurant but they treated us like old friends.

Came to Sweet Waters last night to catch some of the football game, have a few beers and snack on some appetizers. While the slab bacon probably clogged my arteries, It was so worth it. Best bacon I've ever had. Had some perfectly shucked clams and oysters as well as crab cakes. and an awesome Iceberg Wedge. A++

My girlfriend and i have been here a handful of times since they joined Open Table. Quality food and service every time.

2nd times a charm
Went back to one of our new favorite restaurants in the area and just as great as the first time. Excellent, steak, seafood, drinks and dessert. Wonderful service to top it off. A definite must try if you haven't yet.
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I had dinner here last weekend to celebrate our first anniversary. The ambience was great. It's quiet, but not dead. The waiters were very friendly and helpful. I had the salmon and sautéed vegetables and my husband had a steak and mussels. The food was excellent. We're already planning our next visit.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
After an extremely pricey and not that special dinner at an establishment in NYC a few days before, we were excited for our return to Sweet Waters. It did not disappoint. We basically had the same meal (Porterhouse for 2, Cream Spinach, Potatoes and some Wedge Salads) with drinks and dessert and it was a lot cheaper and much better. They treated us like we eat there 3 times a week and the waiter even remembered what drink I had ordered from our previous visit. No need to spend a ton of money in New york for a mediocre meal with mediocre service when you could dine like a king at Sweet Waters.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Sweet Waters Steak House has never disappointed me. The service, the food and the staff are always top notch.
10/8/2013 5:00:00 PM
Not one of the greats-but good
The place is very nice. The service was very good. The wine menu was reasonable- which sometimes isn't the case in a steak house. If you compare this to some of NYC's places, it doesn't rate. Although the prices do. The steak was fair - and a little overcooked for medium rare. The creamed spinach another staple was a bit salty without a richness you expect.. The slab bacon was good and a large portion. The oysters were very fresh. I went once many years ago, I believe when they first opened and it wasn't good at all. I read the reviews and was expecting it to be much better. Maybe I had my expectations a bit high. It was good. I would go back if craving steak and a quiet meal. There is better for less in town.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
The build your own cold seafood platter we got 2 of each of the oysters & the shrimp delish. The oysters were fresh & mignonette was a compliment to the natural brine of the oysters. The shrimp was perfection, it had that crunch you want with a shrimp cocktail. We also got the slab of bacon app it was mouth watering and the natural saltiness made every bite flavorful. I ordered the filet mignon with the stella blue cheese & my husband ordered the dry aged sirloin & split the creamed spinach. All of it was cooked perfectly & the flavors were amazing. I loved the spinach. We got some grown up coffees & the sorbet for dessert. The sorbet was a cranberry orange & it was the exact thing we needed . The staff were accommodating & professional.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent steaks and service! Was surprised to find that they had a liquor license as many restaurants in Westfield do not. Would definitely go again. Everyone in our 4 person party enjoyed our steak. Each was cooked to perfection!
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great crab cakes!
I will definitely go back. The staff was great and the food was delicious. It is Westfield's secret gem.

Would go back
The food was very good, the service was excellent.
I do feel there are some better choices out there when you consider price.

11/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wonderful as always
Saturday night with my husband and Monday night dinner with my daughter - yes 2 visits to Sweet Waters this week and as always food and service were wonderful - a restaurant you can always rely on for great food and service with a sincere smile, a place you can go and they will always remember you and even perhaps your order (no need to look at menus). A place where you become "family" and are always treated that way.
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Thanks again to the staff at Sweet Waters for a superb meal. Already thinking about my next Cowboy Steak.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
What a steak house SHOULD be.
We were greeted by a friendly staff, For the entire meal, everyone was attentive as well as efficient. The food was delicious. Everything was prepared beautifully with excellent seasonings. The meats were prepared exactly as requested. A delightful meal.

Another wonderful meal - A
Another wonderful meal - A quiet, friendly atmosphere as well as a great meal. Caesar Salad, Filet Mignon cooked to perfection, fresh vegetable medley and of course the onion rings all followed up by the chocolate tower cake which is just as amazing. I highly recommend Sweet Waters and look forward to going back. The atmosphere and service couldn't be better lunch or dinner you won't be disappointed.

Best kept lunch secret in NJ
My wife loved her colossal scallops over greens and I had the filet mignon sandwich how can you beat it all for only a total of $30 four Steakhouse quality food
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
We ate a Sweet Waters Grill in Westfield, NJ after a long break.
The food was great, atmosphere fun and the service very good.
This is great place for a special occasion.

My filet mignon steak was
My filet mignon steak was cooked perfectly and the oysters were to die for! Service was outstanding as well as the ambience. I highly recommend this place if you're craving a nice steak or if you're celebrating a special occasion with a small group of people.

What a pleasant surprise.
What a pleasant surprise. We had never been here before. Excellent food and service. The manager and all waiters, etc. make you feel as if you are a regular returning special customer. Just a wonderful Saturday night dinner for the two of us. We cannot wait to return and enjoy another superb meal. Thanx again.

Amazing Mothers Day Experience
Our second time here, this time with my inlaws who were very sceptical about coming to a NJ Steakhouse, as they are Manhattanites. Sweet Waters did not dissapoint ! We were promptly seated by a gracious host at a charming table. The attentive staff quickly filled our water glasses and took a drink order. The bloody marys and the prosecco were top of the line.
All of the appetizers we ordered were delicious, as were the entrees, most notably their porterhouse for 2, which arrived at a perfect medium rare. Reasonably priced house wines by the glass rounded out the meal. We skipped dessert and coffee, as we were in the mood for froyo ! Amazing food, extremely effecient service, highly recommend ! By the way, the Manhattanites were impressed!
5/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
We found this place on living social. We read the reviews that others had posted and even though most of the feed back was from a personal opinion of the guest we decided to give it a try. I have to say I have been to many different restaurants and I have my favorite's. I am going to be adding Sweet Waters Steak House to my list. I ordered a Mojito and my Girlfriend ordered a Martini. Both where outstanding in taste ans appearance. I ordered a Cesar salad and she ordered a house salad. Both looked and tasted great. We ordered a slab of bacon for the appetizer WOW it was terrific (must order). We both had N.Y. strip steak cook exactly as we like it (med). For the finish we each had a cappuccino and shared the creambrulee. It was great!!!!

Went for lunch and it was
Went for lunch and it was great. Had the sliced filet Mignon sandwich and my wife had the shrimp & scallops over a bed of greens. Service was timely and professional. Ate outside on the sidewalk in beautiful bucolic Westfield. Jeff the manager is visible and on top of what is going on. Don't let the term "steakhouse" intimidate you. Large variety of food choices.

Wonderful Ladies Night Out
Received a Livingsocial from a friend a while back and decided to take two of my girlfriends here to try out. Not knowing anything about the place except that my friend told me it was a great spot, we were very very pleasantly surprised. Some of my favorites, other than the drinks and wine, were the shrimp cocktail, slab bacon, filet mignon and the molten chocolate dessert. Great hospitality as well. 2 thumbs way up.
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful experience. We were four people and each had the Porterhouse for two. Plenty of food and prepared exactly as we requested. Specialty cocktails were also top notch. Our server was friendly and very attentive. Westfield is a great spot for dining, and Sweet Waters is a great restaurant.

From the moment of your arrival
From the moment of your arrival you are made to feel at home. The host was very friendly and amenable and although they were very busy had our table ready for our reservation. Although on the expensive side they are very accommodating. My GF and I got a couple of apps and split a meal. Not only did they NOT charge a sharing charge, but they split it in the kitchen but put it on two plates, it was wonderful. Combined with a couple of sides it was a great meal. Very reasonable on the wine and ending it with a cappuccino and double espresso. The service was very friendly and attentive, all and all a perfect evening. We will be back.

I was entertaining out of
I was entertaining out of town guests and looking for a place to take them to dinner that would give them something to talk about when they returned home. I had not been Sweet Waters prior to this evening and was hesitant to make this commitment but I trusted the advise of family that had dined here before. We were close to 30 minutes late for our reservations and was expected to receive some attitude from the wait staff once I arrived but was the opposite. Our waiter was extremely professional the entire evening, 1st class service the whole night. I ate entirely based on his recommendations and had one of the best meals that I've had in a long time. I highly recommend this restaurant and hats off to my waiter, believe his name is Gregory.

Great Customer Service
We chose to dine at Sweet Water for our 7th year marriage anniversary. I booked the restaurant thru Open Table, where I left instruction to have a yellow cake and candles available immediately after we have completed our entrees. A couple of days before our reservations, I received a call from someone on staff from Sweet Water, stating he read my request about the yellow cake. He stated, they did not have yellow cake but if needed, they would go out and purchase one to make our anniversary a memorable one at Sweet Water. He also provided us with dessert selection they served. And we chose the chocolate cake with ice cream. The staff on duty was professional and attentive. This type of customer service, is what the consumer looks for. Thanks

Jeff and his staff are so welcoming and professional. The quality here is outstanding................Bartenders are friendly and generous. We enjoyed the mussels, sea bass and chicken meal...........
