***COVER CHARGE WILL BE APPLIED IF YOU DECIDE TO STAY FOR THE SHOW***.
The food and drinks were amazing Olutayo was phenomenal our table was near the stage and what an experience we had the night was magical
I've been to the sugar bar twice.. the food and the staff are amazing including the live music.. PERFECT place for date night.
Our DO NOT MISS spot when in NYC. Amazing food and open mic night is the best talent in NYC. Ms. Valerie Simpson is always in the house!
This is an outstanding restaurant - we eat there early and don't stay for the music and we find the service and the quality of food both excellent. Highly recommended. Tell your friends.
Over the many years I have visited New York City, this was my first time at the Sugar Bar. It will not be my last! An exceptional evening of fine dining and music! Sharing New York with a friend on her first visit to the city, was the right enhancement to have this restaurant/club destination. Thank you Ashford (RIH) and Simpson! To top it off, after returning to my city, I heard an interview with Valerie Simpson on the Real Jazz with Joe McBride. I learned that Sugar Bar has been around for 21 years and Ashford and Simpson bought the building years ago! #Proudandgrateful! Blessings!
Love the SB! This was a dance party and had so much fun!
I came from Baltimore to celebrate my Harlem Daughter ‘s birthday. Her and her husband didn’t make it so me and my best friend had a wonderful time. The jazz band was amazing. I’d recommend the grilled snapper from presentation to tasting delicious!
The Hostess was totally on point! Wait staff attentive.
I’ll be back with friends!
The food was very good service was ok
Staff friendly and accommodating however alot of the dinners were attending a show at the beacon theatre
And were time restrained needed more waiters to accommodate the rush the place is very small but the food was worth it will be back and will recommend
The staff and waiter were friendly and accommodating. The food was excellent. My only complaint is that the food and drinks took too long to be served. I had to rush through the meal so I could get to my show on time.
Food was very good
We celebrated our 4year anniversary and it was beautiful. The ambiance was perfect, the food was delicious and the staff was very friendly. We will come back again very soon.
Had an awesome time. Be mindful when paying the bill, gratity was already included. However it was kinda dark and I tipped her twice.
We Enjoyed the blackened salmon and fried chicken ! They Offered hearty portions and sides for entrees. Good menu selections of fish, meat, and vegetarian dishes. Staff is friendly and attentive. Restrooms clean too. Music was enjoyable cover charge is reasonable at 10$ pp .We would definitely go there again
My female guests loved the entire first experience. The atmospher was pleasant and cozy. The drinks,food; service and quality and the live music were a hit all around.
The food was great. The drinks were, not too bad. Caught the happy hour so got reduced prices. The service was not the best or the worst I’ve received. The live band that was there this night, DJ and the yams were absolutely amazing. Must go back to see them. We also got to meet Ms. Simpson. She was super cool and down to earth. Good vibes at this place.
Sugar crew is always warm and welcoming
The food is excellent
And the music good and diverse
My go to spot in my hood.
I also enjoy the Sugar Bar, but the prices keep rising on both the food and the cover charge.
Hello Danielle, Thank you for your visiting us and for your review. We are happy to hear that you've enjoyed your experience at the Sugar Bar. That's very important to us. We have not raised our prices on food and drinks in over 6 years and the cover has always been part of our policy for over 15 years if you decide to enjoy the show. Keep in mind that we do have dining spaces available where you can enjoy dinner if you're interested in the show. Thank you again and come see us soon.
Really looked forward to date night in the city with my lady friend but this wasn’t what I expected. The room looked like a local bar on the corner of any street USA
Very small and if you needed to use a restroom you would need to pull a table out to exit.
Service was slow and not welcoming
Disappointed to say the least
The food, live entertainment and service were absolutely outstanding! I can’t wait to dine there again.
Had a great time. The atmosphere was good and staff was friendly and good for the most part. I think an extra waiter would’ve made it even better, as our waiter was overbooked so we had extra wait time for service. The food was excellent and the music was great. We would definitely come back.
Would highly recommend
Best Bar in town. My second visit and I feel like a member of the Sugar Bar family. The music is fantastic. Food is great and the staff is excellent. There is definitely no place like it! Love it!!
Friendly Atmosphere, Live Music and Great Food! I will definitely be back!!
The food was great!! Service was good as well. Really enjoyed the live entertainment! Will definitely come again!
I went to the Sugar Bar restaurant for the 1st time with a relative from out of town. The experience there was quite impressive. The place was cozy with candlelight in each table. The restaurant also had a beautiful Islandish decor effect to it. The staff were all pleasant and the service was great. The food dish that we had of blackened salmon, cheddar cheese mashed potatoes and collared greens were very fresh and very tasty. We also were blessed with live Jazz entertainment on the night that we came there and the cover charge was very reasonable for the event. I highly recommend this restaurant.
We go to the Sugar Bar periodically for live jazz as one of our favourite bands plays there. Good ambience, great music, good food, great cocktails (the Manhattan is terrific). Will be going there for years to come.
Great fun, super entertainment. Great place for music, drinks and food.
Great setting for great food!
First a group of 6 of us had to pay a $15 cover charge for what was billed as a "Night of R the 2 bathrooms were in the middle of the dining area. Finally, the dessert (apple pie) was promised to be warm but it was served cold.
Fantastic comfort food with great live music. Family style seating for much of the space turned out to be super fun. Service was a little slow but the great value and generous portions made it worthwhile. Drinks were strong so slow service was probably a good thing!
Group of 6,excited to dine at a spot named for legends. Good food, soulful NYC late night club set with live music.
Omg!!! the Fried Chicken and the Garlic Shrimp are to die for! this place ROCKS!!!
As always the Sugar Bar experience was fantastic!! Hugo the manager who helped with my reservation was on point. The evening was a birthday celebration for my cousin who wanted to have 15 family/friends in attendance. However because of the weather and distance (South Jersey) we ended up with just 5 of us. Hugo and the Sugar Bar made adjustments and a great time was still had by all.
Although we were not seated in the main dining room we were still able to listen and see the open mic night which was a very nice touch I would definitely go back again and hopefully could be seated in the main dining room for more authentic experience as far as viewing the singers and musicians
We ate before a show. Did not stay for the show. It was nice and quiet until folks began arriving after 7 for an 8 pm show. The food was delicious. The Mac & cheese was fabulous. I enjoyed the jerk wings. They weren’t too spicy. The BBQ Salmon was different and flavorful. The greens were also good and so was the fried fish. Will definitely return. Kui was absolutely attentive and made us feel right at home.
they don't tell you about the $10 cover charge in advance but as long as you're there long enough to watch the musicians it's worth the investment. The food is good, drinks are great and the service was wonderful. Watching Valerie Simpson perform was the highlight of the night.
Went before a concert at the Beacon, so before dinner rush and live music. Tables are tight packed - literally touching one another. But great food, good service and friendly neighbors made up for it.
Want to go back when a show is on!
I love the sugar bar everything was superb ...going to do a girls night very soon
Intimate venue with great live music and fab food too
Soul food. Good choices, tasty. Friendly wait staff. Atmosphere OK, but tables/seating arrangement 2 thumbs down. Very cranped seating & narrow. Very small venue. Row seatiing which required the table to be pulled out to get in & out. Tables were close to each other. Did not like sitting across from the rest room. It would have been been less bothersome if what faced me was the sink, but i think dim votive lights in restroom lights & arranging the sink being what you faced rather than the toilet. Very offputting. I would go again only if i could choose my seating. Music was good.
