    The value for your buck

    I ordered the fried catfish w/mac & cheese/greens/yams. I've had better catfish, my mom makes better mac & cheese but the greens and yams were on point. This was my first soul food locale and I enjoyed it! The employees were nice & funny and made the trip worth while. Remember you get what you pay for. It is an affordable place so you can't expect a five star quality...if you receive it great.

    Disappointed

    I had been a regular at Sylvia's many years ago. Needless to say, I was excited when my nephews expressed interest in going to this NYC landmark. However, the excitement slowly dissipated when the cornbread arrived. It was bland and dry. No amount of butter would have helped. The main entree wasn't any better. The grilled chicken followed the same route. It was also bland and dry. As for the side dishes, I've had better macaroni and cheese and mashed potatoes from a store-bought mix. It was salty and unsatisfying. The service was excellent though. But, what happened to the food? Despite the inadequate meal, my nephews were still excited to be there, but I'm sorry to say that I don't think I'll be visiting Sylvia's again any time soon.

    NY'ers don't know good soul food

    Coming from the midwest with DEEP roots in the south I'm convinced that NY'ers have never had really good soul food (healthy varieties or otherwise). The food I had the ONE time I ever plan to visit Sylvia's was like the one cousin in the family that can't really cook that well but INSISTS on bringing dishes to the potluck. It's not bad... but I can show you good. Good place for a bite if you got to have some fried/greasy/ whatever, but not a must see.

    Gospel Sundays Are Annoyingly Loud

    The food is decent, but really things like mac and cheese, cornbread, and fried chicken are pretty typical. The best part is the yams. I'd say, on the whole, that I and my guest enjoyed it, but part of what you are paying for is the name. Also, the speakers on Gospel Sundays are cranked way up which makes it hard for you to hear anything else. Also, when they sing Happy Birthday, the gospel singer insists on singing the name of everyone who has a birthday at least 20 times, which is pretty annoying.

    What are you people talking about?

    Sylvia's has fell WAY OFF. It is touristy and the food is reflective of that. It's just not that good. The good reviews must come from people who have never eaten soul food before.

    Great Soul Food

    The best Fried Chicken. Really good Mac and Cheese (but I've had slightly better) Great biscuits, and Greens. I hightly reccommend Sylvia's for Soulfood. Great Value too.

    Very nice eats

    After all I had heard about the famous Slyvia's, I was expecting something really ritzy or done up. It wasn't, but you know what? The food was great, and it was a really pleasant meal. I went for lunch on Saturday with a friend (I hear Sunday lunch can be out the door), and it cost 20 bucks! He had an omelet and I had the fried chicken and waffles with a side of greens. It was hearty, simple, soul food. I was deligthed. It didn't need to be decked out like somewhere in MIdtown. It was tasty and worth it. Don't expect to be blown away, but it's real nice eats.
