    Sylvia's in Harlem, with its delicious food and warm hospitality, made me feel so at home when I first moved to New York and, years later, it is still such an important part of my neighborhood. My favorite dish is the chicken livers with Sylvia’s brown gravy.

    Good soul food; tastes like mama's kitchen - dining in feels like dining at home. Reasonably priced.

    I can’t say anything bad about Sylvia’s. The food is great and it’s a nice change from typical NYC dining. That said, they seem to have lost some luster as they became the “it spot” for soul food. I’m still rooting for them!

    In the heart of Harlem you will be able to find Sylvia's which is one of harlem's well known restaurants that serve soul food. If you're interested in a calm restaurant with a great service I would definitely recommend Sylvia's as one of the best choice,

    Sylvia's is possibly New York City's most beloved restaurant, especially among locals. Located in the heart of Harlem, you'll find the best comfort food. Highly recommended!

    A tourist trap. Nothing outstanding but enough to satisfy a soul food fix

    Get your soul food at this Harlem institution. A bit touristy.
