At Sweet Chick, our philosophy is simple: great food, a cool vibe, and interesting cocktails at a great price. Along with some of the best fried chicken and waffles in New York City, we're serving what we like to call American cuisine with a Southern accent: rustic but modern American comfort food and twists on classic dishes and cocktails, plus home-baked desserts that will make you feel like a kid again. Our dining room, on the bustling corner of North 8th and Bedford Ave, is as cozy and inviting (and locally-sourced) as our food.

                                              When I got there they said that they did not have my reservation and that they do not offer bookings through Open Table. Someone should probably look into this .. Other than that the food was amazing. Definitely recommend !

                                              It has taken me quite some time to finally eat here. Any time I wanted to try going, it was last minute and too long for the wait. This time I made a reservation weeks in advance--IT WAS WORTH THE WAIT! I enjoyed everything I ordered!

                                              I enjoyed having my pre birthday dinner here. The food was yummy. And also the waitress was friendly.

                                              The classic chicken and waffles were delicious. The chicken perfectly seasoned, and fried. For $30/pp you'll enjoy a great meal, and a drink

                                              Very unprofessional staff.. The chicken taste like grade B fried chicken... The main course was cold.. The staff looked very tacky and in need of uniforms...daisy dukes and a bathing suit top in never appropriate when serving food.. Very disappointing experience.. Nas shoould seriously reconsider having his name attached to this establishment they don't even sell Ciroc

                                              Host and server weren't friendly food was overpriced fried chicken which tasted as if it was sitting under a heat lamp for hours.

                                              Way too noisy. The food is very spicy and it's not easy to understand from the menu which options are not hot/spicy.

                                              I've been to the Williamsburg location twice before the LES location . Food is prepared better in Williamsburg and customer service is better . Will not be returning to LES.

                                              Took my mom for Mother's Day and she loved it. We usually go to fancy restaurants for special occasions, but we took a chance on sweet chick and had a great time. The food was delicious and the staff was very obliging. Would definitely recommend for any occasion, food was really good and the boozy ice tea was really good.

                                              This place was amazing! Great food, great service, great house Rosé. We had the chicken cordon blue chicken and waffles and they were fantastic. The chicken is seasoned perfectly and has great flavor. The fried Brussels sprouts were delicious, they were a special but a must get if available.

                                              Cute little spot in soho. The fried chicken was good but definitely could've been better. The biscuit was very disappointing. Very soggy. The waffle was alright not the best or not the worst. They gave us 3 different types of flavored butter but all of them were bland except for the lemon butter.

                                              We were seated as soon as we got to Sweet Chick since we had made a reservation online. The atmosphere was chill even though the restaurant was very busy. We were given water as soon as we sat but it took the waiter around 15 mins to come take our order. Nevertheless, the restaurant was pretty busy and me and my friend understood. He recommended some really good -and strong- cocktails and took our order. The food also took a little while to come, but it was understandable given how busy they were (specially being a Sunday night). The food was AMAZING, out-of-this-world good! And, it made all of the waiting worth it. Given the fact of how much alcohol we got in our drinks and how much food we got in our plates I would say the cost of this restaurant is unbeatable! You get a lot for not a high price. I totally recommend going to Sweet Chick at least once while you're in NY.

                                              4th time coming here. I will keep coming back because I just can't get enough. Also, I had a reservation and my friend was late and they were nice enough to keep My table. Some places give you ten minutes and release the table. I love this place. I tell everyone.

                                              Chicken and waffles were amazing. We travel all over the US in search of creative recipes and Sweet Chick has a unique signature style truly savory and distinctive. Save room for the red velvet cake- scrumptious!

                                              Restaurant, food and service was great, my only issue is that the seating/chairs was not comfortable, speaking from a large person perspective, that was my only problem.

                                              The food, drinks and service were great. The bathroom needs more attention, it smelled and looked like a gas station bathroom.
