Food was great but it was crowded. The space for seating is to small. I use a walker. Every time I got up to go to the food line everyone at the table next to us had move their chairs up. It was a hassle for them and made me feel bad because I had to disturb them

Everything was great, however the server told us the price of the special wrong, it was $7 more and then he failed to tell us that there was a $5 charge to split a meal. We didn’t ask for it to be split, we just said we are splitting our meal, my husband and I. He was a fantastic server, but he just failed on those two items! We love the sweet spot and will be back though!

On our way to an event at Prairie Pines, two friends and I wanted to have a nice dinner before the concert. We all live on the east side of Wichita, so we asked our friend, Rose for recommendations. We cannot thank her enough for telling us about "The Sweet Spot." It is a lovely restaurant, the service was outstanding and the food very delicious! We often go to events at Prairie Pines and I think we have found our west side dining location. Thanks Rose!!

Don’t let the location fool you nor judge the “book by its cover”, this is a class act eatery! Excellent wait staff, calming ambiance and delicious food. Generous wine/cocktail menu and a nice variety for the main course. Priced as you would expect for fine dining. We’ll be back!

Mother's Day Brunch Buffet was very good. Service was outstanding. Hot entrees were excellent, and the breakfast potatoes, waffles and omelets made to order were perfect. But, some of the cold salads, breakfast sides, and hot sides (larger cut potatoes, roasted veggies) were overdone. Desserts could have been better as the cookies and pies were clearly store bought and just cut small/thin to have enough to feed everyone.

We do prefer the Sweet Spot to the Ya Ya's brunch these days because it honors its reservation system, provides gloves for customers to wear, and all restaurant employees are masked appropriately. Ya Ya's does not do any of these, and has a useless reservation system because it continues to pack large groups in up to the rafters, shoulder to shoulder. The Sweet Spot has a much better ambiance. It's relaxing and enjoyable to eat there on a Sunday because you don't have a 20-minute wait to get your food, and the price is just right.

Brunch on Mother's Day is not fine dining. While I am curious about their normal operations, I won't return. The brunch was typical fare, but not of the caliber of fine dining I expected. Large family groups in my area were too loud making the dining experience tense. The floor around my table was sticky. Prices were higher than shown on web page--I attributed that to Mother's Day, but it was misleading. I could see that the servers were working hard, and it was evident yesterday were short staffed. In the absence of other elements of fine dining, the staff shone despite their limitations.

The food at Sweet Spot is always amazing. Every dish is beautiful, gourmet quality, and reasonably priced. The staff remember you and treat you like family. It's a nice neighborhood kind of place, but with decor and atmosphere suitable for a date or special occasion. It's also the kind of place you can feel comfortable going to by yourself. I eat here often.

The food was excellent. There wasn’t a huge menu, but the items were diverse enough in nature that most would find something they would want to eat. The toffee bread pudding was amazing. The restaurant was clean. The ambience was good, acoustically it was a little loud for intimate conversation, but was perfectly fine for dinner with friends.
We booked on Open Table indicating it was a birthday and when we arrived there was a birthday note already on the table. Nice touch.

I took my wife for her birthday and was very happy overall with the experience. I will note that after being sat by the hostess our waitress took a long while to circle back around and check on us throughout the night. My drink did run dry on 3 occasions but it did seem they were understaffed for the amount of patrons in the restaurant. I do not fault our waitress but management more so. After putting in our food order it did take what seemed like a very long while, about 15-20 minutes to recieve just our appetizer of steak frites, again I attribute this to waiting staff being overwhelmed. Upon arrival the frites was delicious! Our entrees of 2 ribeye steaks were cooked to a perfect medium for myself and medium rare for my wife, the seasoning was excellent and sides were very complimentary to the dish. The waiting time on our waitress for drink refills, bar beverages, and food is what lost the 5th star for my review but as stated before I attribute this to management of the staff not the staff themselves. Well done Sweet Spot staff!

The atmosphere was absolutely fantastic! Hostess and server were very friendly and kind. The server did take a long time to get back to our table in between visits so it took a long time to even get a drink, but we were still pleased with him. The food quality and quantity were definitely not worth the price. I chose the special for the night, which was a Strip since they don’t normally have that on the menu. It was very fatty and grisly throughout the meat. For the amount of food and quality I do feel it is very overpriced. I have been to many area restaurants and experienced much better food for significantly less.

The food and drinks were delicious. Although, we came on a very busy Friday evening and it was so loud I couldn’t hear my friend talk. We ended up asking for the check and a to go box and sitting in the car to finish our food. I would definitely recommend going on a less busy night and definitely make reservations!
