    Its way too crowded and loud.you bump into everyone and you cant get around without asking everyone to move their chairs in. If they are big? You stuck. The drinks explode sometimes and splatter everywhere. But the drinks are very good. Dont go on a busy weekend. I def. Think they need to make this place bigger.

    The only negative is the lack of room. They cram in a lot of people. They prepared everything just right. The passion punch was a silly indulgence and was very good

    The sugar factory is an amazing place to get the most unusual and fun drinks! The only bad part is the restaurant is tiny and even if you have a reservation you wait almost an hour.

    I made a surprise late night reservation for my boyfriend and I, which turned out great. The location was rather small which was expected. The service was quick and efficient. Only down fall was we weren't warned of last call. So we only drank one drink. Leaving us feeling slightly jiped on the full experience.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/25/2014
    I made a reservation for 4 and when my group arrived they had to stand outside reading the menus until I arrived. When we were being seated, the hostess thought it was a party of 5 and didn't want to let us sit until she realized she was counting herself in the party. It took a very very long time to be served or attended to. The food was boring and not that good and the drinks weren't what I envisioned for the hype going on about this place. We went during happy hour because my friend called to inquire about specials and they told her it was buy one drink get one free. When we asked for our second drink out server stayed it was actually half off goblets. Very dissappointed in the workers of the place. Not a happy customer.

    Very accommodating staff, the hostess was very nice, and our server was great as well. Fun ambience, just super small. We sat outside and our table was at a pretty steep angle and everything was kind of leaning and sliding off. Plus they can't serve any alcoholic beverages in the outdoor seating area, but neighboring restaurants could. This seemed confusing and I think they should definitely change that!

  • Sugary Sweet Evening

    Dined on 8/23/2014
    I thoroughly enjoyed my evening at the sugar factory. I felt like a big kid when I walked in and saw the huge drums of candy. The bar was colorfully graced with drinks of all flavors! My drinks for the evening were lemon-head martini, blow pop martini and a passion punch goblet. Everything was insanely delicious. I felt like i had walked into a candy factor/ club dream that i never wanted to wake up from! Our server, Armando was the absolute best. He made our evening fantastic and unforgettable! Love the sugar factory and love Armando! I will be back!

    I ordered the Ocean Blue which is a goblet styled drink decorated with blue shark gummy candies and dry ice to add smoke. I was very impressed by the presentation of my drink as well as the taste. The bartender I had was great and she worked quickly making many more drinks similar to mine. I ordered Shrimp Fettuccini Alfredo for dinner and it was AMAZING! I would definitely return, especially for a special occasion.

    We live in CT, but saw this place online. It is small in size and you are elbow to elbow, but that's the way it is. I enjoyed myself. The place is nice looking inside and out and my only no no is the woman's bathroom was like a sauna,so expect that. Food and drinks were great. Try the mac n cheese pops.

    Sugar Factory is full of life. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. The waiter was very attentive and was a sweetheart all around. The seating area is very close and confine. I felt that my neighbor next to me, was also engaged in my conversation. The food is okay. The drinks are phenomenal and I can see why they would pay the price they ask for.

    We had a great time! Music choice was amazing although it was a little to loud. I couldn't hear my friends, we had to shout a lot. The food was amazing. Our drinks were amazing. It was a little small for my taste. Not good for large groups. Maybe 4 people at most. We had a reservation for 8pm and we were seated at 8pm. Very friendly and helpful staff. I would go back. Awesome time.

    I wanted to go to the Sugar Factory for so long and finally got the chance to go for my 22nd birthday, and it was amazing. To the music, to the atmosphere, to our waiter, It definitely worth the money and one of the best birthdays I have ever had. I would definitely be going back to the one in NY and hopefully make my way to the one in Las Vegas. LOVE YOU SUGAR FACTORY!!!

    I was initially excited to have my birthday dinner at the Sugar Factory after all the vibrant, fun-looking pictures I had seen online, but upon arrival I was almost immediately let down. There were so many flies hovering around the dining area that I was unable to sit comfortably without swatting every 5 minutes or so. Not to mention we were seated in a tiny corner. My server must have been new/having a bad day because my friend saw her around the back shaking her head with an attitude after we had kindly asked her to return a milkshake that we didn't like. The food was just OK. I would not return to Sugar Factory to eat, but their goblets and martinis are appealing enough to enjoy at happy hour after work or something of that nature.

    Had late reservations, the music is loud (not good for an intimate date) but the music was good. The drinks are amazing ! Its the type of place to go for drinks and desserts. They had a lot of birthdays and they came out with a candle burning dessert every 10mins. Convinced me enough to have my birthday there ! The food was okay, but the appetizers were good ! The waitress rarely came in to check on us but the manager caught it and asked us if we needed anything. I would come back again only for drinks and dessert.

    I enjoyed The Sugar Factory but their website makes the place appear much larger than it actually is. A typical NY eatery with tables way too close together. Ask for a seat in the back which is a bit quieter and roomier. The noise level is more than energetic. Between the repetitive Katy Perry songs and the bad acoustics it is a LOUD place. Small bar area and even smaller candy/gift shop area. It's an occasion place which is why we celebrated my birthday there. The food was good, the desserts excellent and of course, we indulged in a 60 oz. goblet of sugar water which made us all shake as we came down from our sugar "high". Fun place for kids and pretty cool for adults, too. Way overpriced as are most NY hotspots. Fun night though.

    First off - there are almost always birthdays going on in here, and it takes honestly about 2 weeks to get a reservation on weekends.The place isn't tiny, don't get me wrong. But for the amount of people they try to fit in there? There's hardly any breathing room. Food wasn't exceptional but it is tasty. I, personally, had the Bleu Cheese Bacon Cheeseburger (It's on Brioche bread), and it was great. Their "smoking" goblets are overrated as well, packed up with ice and their fizzy formula on the bottom, but those go down great too. I suggest the drink with the lollipops, so you get a little more money worth of your $36 drink. Either way, the place makes for a great time, hoping you have something to talk about while you wait for your food.
