I went there with my wife recently and had a wonderful time. The food was great and my meat was cooked to a perfect temperature. If you want cheap, fast, and simple food this is not the place for you. Worth the experience.

After reading other TripAdvisor reviews on Sweetwater, we ventured and were rewarded. Staff were welcoming and friendly, sharing with us the day's special. On our virgin visit, we ordered the specials wagyu beef and black cod. The black cod was cooked to perfection. As for the wagyu, overall, it was nice, with the sides crisped but the texture of the...

Both Restaurant are owned by the same guy and Giannis is more an Italian high class Trattoria wherelse Sweetwater serves modern Mediterranean style fusion cuisine. I was there with my wife and a friend a while ago and we... More

I was invited to a private birthday party of 20 at this restaurant and loved the whole experience. We were given the private dining area upstairs. The entree of bread/bread sticks and dips was good. The mushroom soup was excellent as it was not pureed and I could still taste the fine pieces. It was a full dish by itself.... More
