Diner Reviews
  • "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!"

  • "Excellent menu choices; good wine selection; great service. Food was prepared just as requested; steaks were moist and tender."

  • "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."

  • "The steak we had (21 day dry aged sirloin) was absolutely superb. Did not care much about the Chilean sea bass, was just an OK dish."

  • "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"

  • "The onion soup was flavorful. The grilled shrimp and calamari (appetizer) was delicious. My husband ordered a burger rare and it was served as requested."

  • "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."

  • "I found this place on Groupon and am so thankful that I did. Perfect ambiance for an anniversary, food was fantastic, and service stellar. Prices are about the same as most other upscale steak houses, but not outrageous."

  • "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."

  • "We surprised my husband with a birthday dinner here. Food and service was great and they catered to my seven year old son with a chicken finger meal. The manager overheard my husband say it was his birthday and sent over a piece of flourless cake for him. We have a wonderful evening."

  • "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"

  • "After being seated by the very bubbly hostess, we were almost immediately greeted by our server. He helped guide us through ordering and we were very excited for what we hoped to be a grand dinner. The appetizers were just fine and the entrees not so fine. Steak was very overcooked which is obviously upsetting for someone who likes their steak semi-mooing. Potatoes were soggy and limp. Wasn't cheap neither. Gave it 3 stars and not 2 only because the service was what you would expect from a very high-priced steakhouse and drinks were great and strong. :)"

  • "This by far is one of the best steak houses we've eaten at. The salad, steak and sides that we had were perfect. I haven't had a good piece of steak in a restaurant that could compare to this. Would go back in a heartbeat."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Our meal wasn't absolutely terrible, but was definitely not one to write home about. Appetizers were good, but the steak left a lot to be desired. I ordered medium rare, came out close to medium well. They were extremely busy so I didn't feel like sending it back to wait another 30-40 minutes for another since we waited a pretty long time for our second course."

  • "Food at Sweet Waters wasn't all that great. The entrees just didnt taste as fresh as they have in past visits. Either the meat had been previously frozen or they have started to skimp on their product big time."

  • "Had a very lovely evening at Sweet Waters. Not the greatest steak house in the world, but not bad. Really good, attentive service, but not overbearing. Never felt rushed, very relaxed. I'd go back."

  • "Special occasion turned out to be not so special st all. Steak tasted like cardboard and was two temperature levels over how I ordered it. I know from experience that different restaurants have different versions of temperature but this was ridiculous. Any restaurant that has the words steak and house in their title and charge the same prices you'd pay at a Luger's or Wolfgang's should cook a steak perfectly every time. I wanted to give it one star but I like the ambiance and they treated us great."

  • "All 4 of us enjoyed our dining experience. When we were seated, someone came over to welcome us to the restaurant. Don't know if he was the owner or the manager but regardless, that very rarely happens in a restaurant. The waiter was excellent. The food was delicious, starting with the salad. And considering the quality of the food, the prices were where we expected them to be. Except for the salads. We found the prices to be extremely reasonable. All around it was a wonderful evening. "

  • "Been here a few times over the last 2 years and the food seems to be getting worse. Just doesn't taste as quality as it did when I first dined here. I believe they changed the bacon, which was still excellent. My steak was way overcooked, but I don't like to complain so I just ate as much as I could stomach. Didn't even come out with the starch I ordered. Fish seemed a little undercooked. Only reason I gave it 2 stars is because I think the server realized how displeased I was and gave me a free dessert without me saying anything. They really need to get their act together. "

  • "My entire experience was quite pleasant. I took my mom for dinner and we were greeted with prompt and friendly service. We received our drinks timely and orders were taken timely. Our meals arrived nicely timed between courses. Our meal was really well prepared. I had the NY Strip and it was cooked perfectly as was my mashed potatoes and asparagus. I can't recall what my mom ate but she thoroughly enjoyed it and she is a tough sell. I was unable to have any dessert but was quite tempted. Overall, nice experience and I would definitely go back."

  • "Just thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Sweet Water. Steak was nothing short of amazing. The wife ordered the sea bass which was cooked to utter perfection. Steak was served with onion and mushroom sauce which didn't make the incredible taste of the steak. Wait staff was polite and served with class. Thank you, Sweet Water, for a GREAT night. "

  • "First time here for the 6 of us. Had a great round table in the side room. Both the fried and grilled calamari appetizers were delicious. The staff was very nice about splitting the steak between 2 people who were sharing. The tuna was excellent . Everyone enjoyed the asparagus, onion rings and sweet potato and regular fries. The string beans were very peppery and I wouldn't recommend them. We shared 3 desserts that were very large and very fresh. I definitely would go back. "

  • "We both had Caesar salad, it could have use more dressing. The filet mignon was exceptional. Desserts were good. One negative I wanted a glass of white zinfandel, they did not have it. Also, there was a table of 6 people who were rudely noisy. Not the restaurants fault, but they acted like they were the only people in the place. But we would return because the food was good."
