My suggestion is that you not visit this place and go to other establishments in the Bronx such as Bruckner Bar & Grill down the block, GBar, Z'Novia's, or the Gallery Lounge. \r
You could also try going to Harlem which has an abundance of restaurants that are way better. I ended up at Native, but there is the Den, Moca, Shrine, and a host of many other hot spots!\r
I invited a bunch of friends throughout the city to visit Sweetwater's and support a black owned establishment. My party had to wait an hour to be serviced, and it took another hour to receive the orders which came out cold. Even people who ordered drinks had to wait for the servers to come from the corner store to stock up their liquor supply. I attributed these issues to Sweetwater's possibly not being used to large crowds.\r
So I tried again... This time I was stopped at the door and told that because I had on sneakers (I never changed back into my pumps after driving to this establishment), I could not come into eat. Really? At a restaurant?! I am an avid restaurant goer and have NEVER been told I can not come in and eat somewhere because of my footwear. I was dressed properly and had three other friends with me. \r
Needless to say I will not be going back there. Sweetwater's managmenet (who I believe are the same people giving this place rave reviews on Citysearch) has mistaken ""bringing SoHo to SoBro"" with being discriminatory. This would have never happended in SoHo.
Pros: NONE, go elsewhere
Cons: Cold food; long wait; horrible customer service
