Service was outstanding and the food was perfect. Would highly recommend to others for any special occasion. The big plates are perfect to share and if that’s not your cup of tea the small plates are perfect if you don’t wanna share!

I had a friend visiting and wanted to stop by for the awesome food I’d had before. We were not disappointed. The goat cheese croquettes were so sweet and delicious, the bowl of shishito peppers were perfectly prepared and the octopus was so good...we had two helpings.
Add two glasses (a piece) of their Chablis and a server named Josh who was, not only friendly and helpful, but damn cute to look at, it made for a great day.
Josh, if you read this, thank YOU! Great service and recommendations.

Sugarcane is a wonderful restaurant. Great ambiance, food and service. I typically do not like small plate restaurants, but my guest and I were able to find medium to large plate items that fit our needs. The list of wine, cocktails and mocktails is stellar and even the side dishes were delicious. Will definitely return.

I really love this place i do! I enjoy the sushi and I go there pretty often! I do wish they had more more appetizer options. The last few visits I can’t help but point out these 2 frequent issues. 1- The food comes out all at once and way too fast . I get its tapas style but it needs to be spaced out a bit. I feel like I just had the first sip of my drink and my meal is already on the table and often no room for all of the plates, so its then condensing the food all together in a panic when the server comes so they can fit it on the table. 2. The bathroom situation is horrible!! There is constantly a huge line. I was there a few days before Halloween and the bathrooms were disgusting unflushed toilets, paper on the floor etc , they were multiple people on line who were NOT dining as they were in full halloween costumes and were not eating at any table in there. They were all going the same stall together in groups, no idea what was going on it but it made me feel like I was in a club bathroom setting rather then an upscale restaurant . They really need to figure this bathroom situation out.

I’ve been here before and I love this place! I surprised fiancé and his family here for a Saturday night dinner, they immediately sat us down. The waitress was very quick with everything as well as super friendly. I was able to whisper over to her that we’re celebrating a birthday and she did a great job with prepping / bringing everything as a surprise. Food is fantastic, I loved the Korean style tacos, the Brussels sprouts were also amazing. My all time favorite is the bacon wrapped dates ! I usually go for the duck and waffle but tried the pulpo which was also fantastic! I have nothing bad to say about this place ! I will continue to go there !

My only complaint is that we were seated at 8pm for. 7:15pm reservation. We were on time and kept being told a table was being cleared. That went on for 45 minutes which was the same wait time being quoted to walk ins. Makes you wonder what the point of a reservation is.

Service was very slow and brought out the entrees moments after they brought the apps. Cool interior space, but service was very slow and the food was not very good. Great place for drinks, but I’d get lunch/dinner somewhere else.

This is a truly awesome restaurant. The spacious room is absolutely stunning. The kale and apple salad was delicious. The branzino was fresh, light and beautifully prepared. The nutella sundae was divine. My server Grace was so friendly and welcoming - she helped make this a really special dining experience.

The duck waffles are AMAZING and the brunch menu is unique. Everything at my table was delicious! Just had to knock down for service b/c the host was so unbelievably rude I would have left if we weren't meeting the other half of our party who was already seated.

It took them for a while to seat us, like 45 min. The receptionist/hosts, floor manager & floor staff, everyone had different priorities and it was confusing why we weren’t seated. However, after we were seated, the lovely waitress made us feel welcomed and we had an excellent service. Food was very good but wished they could bring dishes 1-2 at the time so that we could enjoy a couple at the time rather than bringing all at once.
The view and vibe from the terrace was amazing, right under BK bridge. Great for friends get together or dates.

Pretty expensive for the dishes it offers. Nevertheless I found it a reasonable price to pay for finding out all the other little stores that are inside that Time-out mall!
Very nice location and set-up but it needs to also develop a firm culinary identity and stick with it. Because of the location, even if the choice were weak (but single), still it would come out a winner!

They booked the entire restaurant out but didn’t give us any notice of this ahead of time. They sat us on a crowded and unimpressive outdoor area next to a table of drunk girls. Staff was unhelpful. Will not return.

Originally we were a little off put by the location of the restaurant. But once we located it we were delighted. Our server Jasmine was memorable and efficient. We had the brunch and everyone was happy. Our original reason for coming to Sugarcanr was to celebrate the chefs being listed on the top 13 black chefs list of the New York Times three black professionals are abundantly proud. We are a brunch club and we plan to come back.

This was our 4th time there. On two occasions, one of the items we ordered came out 10 -15 minutes after we had finished the other dishes. The server explained that the wait was because the food was "coming from different kitchens." She could have given us a heads up, but we had to ask her what the delay was about.

When we arrived for our reservation the front desk was rude and even though there were tuns of tables available seated us at a table that was on the end practically in the aisle aka the worst table in the place. When we asked to change they were hesitant about it. They did change us and we had a nice server and a good meal but the attitude that hostesses great with is such a turn off. Not everyone dining in a cool restaurant needs to be young and beautiful.
