    From start to finish, the meal is superb. Had a "fall" salad that was fresh and crisp, beef that was fork tender. Sides are cooked to perfection...not frozen vegetables or soggy. Sauces well-balanced. Had a quadruple dessert that was a wonderful light combination of flavors and textures. Will probably return in he next couple of weeks.

    Celebrating wedding anniversary on our first visit here. I like steakhouses, so I figured we'd try somewhere new ( we usually go to Park Steakhouse in Bergen county, but I didn't feel like driving that far this time). Anniversary was noted in our OT profile. Will note that food was served rather quickly, which can be a good thing. Anyway, I'll review the meal in order. I started with a Caesar salad -- standard steakhouse staple, but wasn't anything to write home about... No Parmesan tuile, or homemade buttery croutons or specialness to the salad. Husband did enjoy his french onion soup. We also had the slab bacon app. Reviews said this was a must try dish. I agree. We expected it to be sweet, but surprisingly it wasn't. It was two large thick cut slabs of applewood bacon. Very rich, good for sharing. Entrees , steaks. Of course. For a steakhouse , the chef must have had an off night. Or maybe it was his night off. Being our first visit, we thought maybe they do not season the steaks, which is why we didn't send them back. I had the NY strip. There was a green sauce under the steak that seemed to be the only seasoning. Steak was cooked well for me, but I've had steaks at Charlie Brown's which were more seasoned. Husband had aged sirloin, which was also under seasoned, and underwhelming. He states that for an aged steak, parts of it were overcooked (medium vs med rare) , and parts of it, he says , the texture was "off" . Sides were pretty good. I enjoyed the Mac and cheese, not overly creamy, but in a good way. They brought us a dessert with a candle , wished us happy anniversary. Ordered dessert anyway. Turns out the candle dessert was not on the house. Meal came to nearly $200, without alcohol. Might visit again, but not for a special occasion. Sorry, sweet waters.

    It was just my husband & I, but there were many groups in the restaurant. We had sea bass which was served beautifully. So if you are not a carnivore the fish will certainly not disappoint.

    Food was delicious tough our steak was undercooked (asked for medium well and got medium rare). I'd expect for an expensive steakhouse to know steak temps. Creamed spinach was great and the slab bacon appetizer was wonderful.

    My husband and I both had the crab cake, served on a plate with a spicy red cabbage, cabbage was very good, I felt there was too much filler in the crab cake, although the flavor was good. We both had filet mignon, it was delicious and perfectly cooked, good baked potato, some restaurants do a bad job on a baked potato. My husband had a white wine which he liked and I had a glass of sangria which was delish. The service was very good. We've been here before and will go back.

    We went with another couple. I've been before. The food was amaZing as usual. I have the wedge salad and almost licked the plate. I had oysters on the half shell and crab claws. Beautifully served and fresh. I had the filet mignon and added mushrooms, it was just so moist and tasty and delicious. One of the best meals I've had in a long time. I didn't even try anyone else's because I didn't want to share mine. And one more thing, THE best apple martini I have ever had in my entire life!!

    Came here during Restaurant Week. The restaurant was well appointed, and the staff was friendly and knowledgeable. You must try the Pear Martini and the Meditteranean Mule! The steaks were well prepared, juicy and tender. We enjoyed it so much that we returned the next day for lunch I am giving it a four star rating because the desserts on the first night were blah....but at lunch, the creme brûlée was fab! Sweet Water's is sweet.

    The restaurant was an overall great experience. The table was ready upon our arrival, the staff was friendly and attentive and most importantly the food was good. My steak was perfectly cooked. There is a drink menu with several to choose from. The restaurant is a little pricey for the area but overAll a great experience and I will return.

    What an amazing dining experience! Everything we ordered from the mac & cheese and slab bacon appetizers to the dessert was fabulous. We ordered three different types of steaks: a filet, a sirloin and the marinated skirt steak; each was better than the next. They were all done they way we ordered them. My daughter and her fiance ordered the prix fixe dinner for $40 which involved a salad, an entree and a dessert which was very cost effective. The service and the ambiance contributed to the total dinign experience.

    Food was very good, but had a tough time getting any attention, and there was hardly many people in the place. Service is the most important thing next to food, so even if the food is great and the service stinks, the overall experience stinks.

    Porterhouse for 2 was $87 and it was cold/ partially raw with uneven cooking/ hard grisly fat/ questionable smell with some bites..My Pink Cocktail was clear like club soda, guess no pink grapefruit juice that was supposed to be in it, unappealing for a woman.Salmon bruschetta okay but too much garlic and soggy toast. Desserts and coffee good. Asked if we wanted water at beginning and given warm water on a very warm day, asked for ice. Only 1 other table dining at 6 PM on a Sunday so food could have had more attention.

    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.
