    A long time favorite. Of all the steaks they offer we have found the filet mignon to be the most flavorful and tender - and don't miss that creamed spinach. An excellent dining experience - huge martinis! - impeccable service. Highly recommended. Barbara& Sheldon Roskin Scotch Plains,NJ

    Had a business dinner on a Monday night. The service was excellent. The food was fantastic. Just had to have the "Slab Bacon" appetizer and it was decadent. Few places have skirt steaks and it was a treat to have them well prepared. The drinks selection made making a decision difficult, but the results were wonderful. Too bad we were just in the area for a one-time visit. Would love to go back again.

    In the middle of "restaurant row" on Elm Street in downtown Westfield there is a wonderful restaurant. When you enter, you know immediately the flavor of the restaurant - dark wood, comfortable club chairs, and impeccably dressed servers in black vest- white shirt and red tie- you know you are in a steakhouse! and There is a room to the side which would be perfect for small parties. Also outdoor seating in good weather. We had reservations and were seated immediately. The menu was simple but certainly ample choices of steaks, sauces and sides. Plus a few selections for non red meat eaters. The server was incredibly knowledgeable, stopped by often enough to check in but not overbearing. Everything was delicious and perfectly cooked!

    The Bacon, creamed spinach, baked mac n cheese, key lime mousse, creme brulee, & watermelon sorbet were tastey, my scallop dinner was cooked perfectly! Unfortunately the steakhouse didn't get the steaks quite right. When we got home, my husband told me that the 36oz porterhouse for 2 was served cold & was not trimmed well, my daughter then added that her 8oz filet mignon was also cold. This did not give the restaraunt a chance to fix it. I was very disappointed that neither of them said anything when we were there as those 2 steaks were over $100 & more than 1/3 of our bill. I have read similar reviews that the steaks in this steakhouse aren't the best & that's a shame since I really enjoyed everything else.

    So we went for the purpose if getting steak, but after we got there and saw the burgers at the table next to us, we opted for bugers. They looked amazing. We also didn't want to risk getting steak since the reviews weren't amazing on the steak entrees. We could. It have been happier. The burger was absolutely amazing and done perfectly. The service was good and the seating outside was really pretty. We would go there again!

    For a steak house that has been in Westfield for quite some time, I expected better. The crab cake appetizers were great and therefore we expected the entrees to be of equal quality. I had the NY strip, which was cooked perfectly but was tough and not trimmed of grizzle. My wife had the tuna. It was not fresh but frozen and had no taste. When we complained about the tuna, the server removed the cost of one of the crab cakes from the bill, which was appreciated but the reduction should not have been necessary.

    3 Stars only because service was great, from the host to the waiter who is always there when we needed him to the busboy clearing our plates in a very timely way despite it was busy. Only problem was the food didn't live up to the level of service. I was not going to write this review thinking maybe this was just a freak time but after reading through the reviews on here and Yelp, it seems common to get an overcooked tasteless steak. And it wasn't just me. Neither of us were happy. And the "sesame aioli" that is paired with the off color tuna, isn't an aioli and didn't taste homemade. I don't think they know what an aioli is, which is crazy for a fine dining restaurant.

    We celebrated our wedding anniversary at Sweet Waters. The food and service were both magnificent. Our Server recommended the Crab Cakes for an appetizer and said they were the best he's ever had. That was not an overstatement. They were the best I ever had. My wife who is not a fan of Crab Cakes

    As I wasn't really expecting NYC quality like BLT or STK, I wasn't as dissapointed as I would have been going in with high expectations. The service and style was just as good as any other high end place, but the quality and temp of the meat did not impress me. I don't consider myself a food snob but nothing tasted spectacular at all. It also didn't help that it felt like it was 150 degrees in there. How anyone can sit in that heat and eat a steak comfortably is beyond me. They will not last the summer without air conditioning. I feel like many of the good reviews for Sweet Waters are friends and family.

    We ordered a seafood platter for our appetizer, the waiter suggested three clams and one shrimp a piece. The clams were on the half shell and the accoutrement provided wonderful. For our meal we ordered the cowboy steak and the ahi tuna, both were amazing! Aside from the loud family near us the ambiance was great. We will definitely go back.

    Have not been to Sweet Waters for a few months. Went on impulse for lunch on Saturday and had an outstanding lunch. Great selection of food choices, plentiful portions and sitting outside in Westfield was perfect. People think "Steakhouse" and immediately are intimidated. Not at Sweet Waters. You must give it a try for lunch, you'll be back for dinner
