I really like this place. The food and drinks are lovely and you'll never know who will drop in for "Open Mic" night.

Management was reluctant to honor the groupon, especially during performances and changed menu items once notified of groupon.

The food and drinks were great, ambiance was good. The tables were a bit close, could hear neighboring conversations over the music.

Maybe replace or upgrade the chairs and benches. It felt too low

I would like Ashford & Simpson's Sugar Bar to work on its customer service. The food was good but the atmosphere and management was less desirable. The Sugar Bar should not lie about not having food, its just not right. Management needs to do better.. i only saw a smile from management is when he tried to sell me a CD. I don't think this type of behavior reflects well on an establishment.

The food was great. The seating is just to close together.

Hire more waitstaff and when you run out of certain foods, supplement with similar foods. Example: if you run out of collars greens, provide green beans instead of mashed potatoes.

From Our Editors

Founded by popular musical duo Nickolas Ashford and Valerie Simpson, Ashford & Simpson's Sugar Bar infuses elegant meals with soulful tunes five nights per week. Inside the converted brownstone building, a small stage stands as the focal point of the intimate dining room, where rustic décor, exposed timber ceiling beams, and statues assembled from Lincoln Logs evoke images of an old country village. The glow of candlelight illuminates menus stocked with fried entrees and decadent desserts, and talented musicians inflate evening airs with R & B grooves, exotic Caribbean melodies, and traditional African rhythms. Trips to the Sugar Bar may also include celebrity sightings, as stars such as Bruce Willis, Stevie Wonder, and Eddie Murphy have previously graced the restaurant's booths and painstakingly autographed the silverware.
