A group of friends met for lunch on Thursday, August 10. The service was wonderful and the waitress had no problem giving separate checks to this group of seven. Everyone was happy with their food. I ordered the "double decker" was delicious and HUGE! I took half of it home for another meal. I would definitely dine here again.

Outstanding service by the waiter, Andre, would hazard to say one of the best servers that we have had at any restaurant.

Everyone's meal had no flavor except for one person who ordered an omelet. Very disappointing

We had calamari, fish & chips and crab cakes. All very good. Looked like wait-staff was shorthanded, but our waitress did a good job anyway.

The food and mixed drinks are great. Though a two story location, it seemed a little tight in the main dining area the night we were there. It's a busy location but noise is light enough to hold a conversation. The recommendations from the server were spot on. Great place to meet and catch up with friends.

We always enjoy Sweet Lorraine's and you didn't disappoint for my dad's 85th Birthday or, any other occasion! Excellent service. Thank you for allowing us to bring in our own cake!

This is one of our favorite local dining establishments that never disappoints. Excellent entree salads, plus standard fare (focaccia bread with dip, chocolate truffles) always please.
The enticement of "buy one entree, get one free" brings us back to Sweet Lorraine's again and again. Plus, we received excellent service from our young waitress.

We will be back!

Made reservation for Sunday 6:30 pm. Didn't have to wait long, but it was too busy and too loud. My food was probably hurriedly put together, and toast underneath the shrimp dish almost burned. We have been there mid week around 5:00, which was nice because it wasn't so busy. We won't go there again Sunday evening. Appreciated the wait staff who were efficient, helpful and friendly, as usual.

The menu has interesting options and the food is always well prepared. But the last two dining experiences there have been painfully slow. Not only did it take our table of 4 two hours to have lunch but during the long wait between the appetizer and main course we did not see our waitress once to have drinks refilled. It is very annoying to see wait staff standing around but you can't flag anyone down to refill your drink. I keep saying that I won't go back because of the service but the food is great.

Booth are not comfortable for plus size people. While sitting at the table, I felt like I was in the way and had to keep ducking.

A friend and I split two flat bread pizzas and they were both delicious. We ordered the house Pinot Grigio, which was fine, but it was $8.50 a glass! I would have ordered a different brand had I known the price for the house wine was exactly the same as many other brands on the wine list.

They don't really seem to take reservations. I was put on the list just as everyone else was that walked in even though I had a confirmed reservation. Wait was about 15-20 minutes.

Due to a picky member of my party, I selected Sweet Lorraine's because of the great variety and wonderfully unique combinations. All were super pleased with their meals. I had the Creole Chicken and Shrimp and the Russian Cheesecake. Fantastic layers of flavors all the way through -- the leftovers were equally amazing the next day! The Russian Cheesecake made my tastebuds dance! Our service started out VERY slowly even though most of the room was empty at the time; service levels eventually picked up. Our waitress, Anisha, was pleasant and knowledgeable and helpful.
