Great place! I rarely go to restaurants and eat food and say their food was delish! I had smothered chicken white meat and it came with two sides I choose collard green and candied yams. And it also came with a free huge piece of corn bread . Their portions was huge and they marinate their chicken a day before so it is very fresh and tasty. They are the best soul food restaurant in new York city. I did to-go, paid 16.23 for my meal and it lasted me two days dinner and lunch and I ate a lot so you know that meal was big. Very satisfied! I can't wait to go back. I even got a friendly greeting when entering and leaving . They are just great, honest.

I ordered chicken & dumpling, and when I got home I noticed, I received a piece of chicken for $13.95. I know our country is going thru a financial crisis, but damn. How can you charge someone $13.95 for a piece of chicken w/2 sides. The mac & cheese and greens were tasty. The chicken & dumplings was ok. My friend's mother c & d taste better.

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.
