Has anyone been to /or had a party at Sweetiepie Restaurant on Greenwich ave.. I the West Village?
i went this past weekend:
This place is beyond awful - started with passive aggressive hostess who was utterly snarky about us not having a reservation and then still couldn’t manage a table when we patiently waited - we did not complain about there being a wait but we still don’t expect a hostess to roll her eyes at you.
Then we asked for bread at least 5 times - was told it was being "toasted" then it finally arrived cold - apparently it was being thawed because they use frozen bread.
Our food was terrible - while we were ok to pay whatever the jacked up prices were for the 'experience' - we were not expecting for example a pb&j on burnt wonder bread with the cheapest clear diner jelly and worst peanut butter ever - a better pb&j could have been had a corner deli - and while this seems petty since it is after all a pb&j - check out the one at 'wichcraft: home made Pullman loaf, organic peanut butter, preserves and all for $4 less than this place.
When we were asked if everything was "ok" and we mentioned the food our hostess looked appalled and essentially blamed us saying "this should not have been our experience" - as if she had never seen what actually is brought out by the kitchen - the burgers looked to be burnt with barley melted cheese slices and supermarket buns - the 'schnitzel' looked to be fried in week old oil - I have no idea why anyone who was there tolerated this
At the end we had hoped, 'ok this is meant to be a cute soda shop’ and we'll have desert thinking they will redeem themselves - but this was not to be the case - my son's ice cream sundae arrived totally melted - it was soup.
I do not recommend going here for any reason at all. It felt like such a rip off.
