My wife and I (from Dublin, Ireland) visited NYC in March for the first time. Had heard about Sylvias, and we were not disappointed! Although foreigners we felt at home instantly - in no small part to our server. The fried chicken was like nothing I had ever tasted so crispy on the outside and succulent on the inside, the garlic mash, the ribs, I could go on! Very warmhearted, friendly and great home style Southern food.

My first time. Why did I wait so long? A warmhearted welcome; exceptionally friendly and thoughtful staff; and, the food, the most incredibly delicious Southern home cooking in NYC. Everyone here who works so very hard to make Sylvia's "happen" have every reason to be proud. Thank you! I'll be back soon.

As most...always wanted to, never got there, finally did and so glad we went. Crowded but not full, staff was very friendly. Had the smothered pork chops, fried chicken with waffles, candied yams, mac & cheese and sweet potato pie. All was very very yummy, especially the pork chops. They even have a "Harlem Golden Ale" beer that was very good though it is really made in Saratoga, NY. So glad we went and look forward to going again. For those who want to but are "concerned" about heading north of the Park, c'mon, get over that and get some tasty food. Yeah it's a bit on the pricey side for what you get but you're paying a bit extra for it being Sylvia's.

Sylvia's has consistently declined since I started eating there in 1972. The service is slow; both of my guests were half finished their meals before mine arrived. I had ordered the same dish as one of my guests. I am not surprized. I can't say this is the same place in terms of quality of food. It's not a place I would take my friends for good soul food.

You would think for $18.95 you would get more then a small leg Quarter. Thought it was yard bird. Very little bit of meat. The collards were good like grandma's the mac & cheese good . Small portions. For desert you must try the bread pudding or the banana pudding. have both.

I am from the south and this hit the spot. Even ran into the family who owns the restaurant. The candied yams, fried chicken, collard greens, bbq ribs, corn bread....and my peach cobbler for dessert were AMAZING. Honestly, writing this makes me want to plan my next visit. Must try when you're in NYC. Heads up...Sunday can be very busy but it's definitely worth it.
