Total Daddy-Daughter spot. I took my girls 4 & 6 to Sweetie Pie and they really were into the colorful scene, balloons, gum balls. It's a "no brainer" as this restaurant has the right spot, right prices, right atmosphere and right menu choices. MJAE

my niece and nephew (ages 5 & 7) came to town from LA and flipped out when i took them to sweetiepie! never seen anything like it. the owner was there tending bar and the kids were entranced by her - she's like a kid whisperer! i literally had to peel them out of there and they begged to go back every night. thanks sweetiepie for making me coolest aunt!!
One of my favorite restaurants!

My family and I are regulars at Sweetiepie and it's one of our favorite restaurants in New York (or anywhere!). The atmosphere is amazing for both kids and their parents with hot pink banquettes, the giant birdcage, great music and a full bar. The menu is simple and delicious with something for everyone - from burgers and mac and cheese to Roast chicken and chopped salads for the grown ups. And the desserts are incredible! Especially their cakes. We've also had birthday parties in their private room which were a blast. The staff is so kid friendly and the space is so unique and magical. There is nothing like it!!
Perfect for my 7 year old daughter

We booked the gilded cage for dinner and my daughter loved it. I wish we had found this place sooner as it is perfect for playdates. The food is not what you come here for... though my waffles were perfectly nice.
Not "Sweet" at all.

In fact, this place left such a bitter taste in my mouth, I will never go back to this place again. My mom and I left in a shouting match with the owner who suggested we take our desserts back home and finish because the place was busy and she "like, has a business to run". Since when is it okay to kick out paying customers? We were there for almost an hour and spent $60. Doesn't that justify at least a smile ?
A missed opportunity for greatness that missed the mark!

We were so excited to go to Sweetie Pie for my daugther's 5th bday but were sorely disappointed. How the nephew of Warner LeRoy would hire such an inept staff and miss the mark so terribly is a wonder? This place could have been a goldmine but the service was terrible and the decor is almost wonderful but again missed the mark with not enough balloons to make a statement (not to mention they were in weird colors that do not match the "pink" decor) We had the eggs benedict where they served the eggs on raw english muffins, not toasted! The trays they show you as samples of the deserts looked wilted and tired and the china is chipped as well as the mirrored ceiling. I had high hopes for the place. We need a new, posh "Serendipity" in the city and this had the potential but it needs major work and attention on the food and service. My LeRoy salad had MUCH to be desired and the basket of bread was pathetic and stale!
Beware Food Allergy Individuals
By aliangel74 on 3/31/2010
Reading these reviews, I'm curious if the manager/owner had a "you know what" up her "you know what" recently. We were treated horribly. I have a nut allergy, and they were downright nasty in accommodating me. I should not feel guilty for having a serious health ailment.In fact, you should be eager to help me. All in all, because of their behavior, I was nervous to eat half of the food served. In addition, while I was there, there was a bridal shower occurring. By the end of their stay at Sweetiepie, the maid of honor was literally in tears. My heart broke for that poor group. That is a horrible way to remember your bridal shower, and the management should have absolutely done more to make their experience memorable.
Horrible Â– the worst service I have ever encountered
By andrew09 on 5/9/2009
We arrived to the restaurant only to discover our reservations were lost. When I explained to the manager / owner that we were celebrating a special occasion and had an elderly woman with us she responded with Â“take a seatÂ”. After finally being seated - the bread arrived 15-20 minutes later. The food (when it finally arrived at our table) was mediocre at best. Then to kick off this dining experience the manager / owner came over to our table and explained that they would need our table for a private event and we would have to move immediately. If you plan to go here with your kids / friends or family, you should reconsider and go to Serendipity instead. The food, ambiance & service our far superior.
On To The Next One..
By JulieNYC on 4/3/2010
Next time I want to pay alot of money for slightly below average dessert I'll go to a restaurant that can at least pretend they can tolerate having me there. **Here's a tip Sweetiepie: Your "too cool for school" attitude needs a makeover. **Tip for NYMag Readers: if you do for some bizarre reason end up there... make sure you pay close attention to the bill.Our waitress tried to over charge us not once, but twice!
Save your Money
By AKH16 on 3/30/2010
Well where can I start…. I was there on Sunday afternoon for a Tea Party and can we say RIP OFF!!! If you would like to go somewhere in the Village to get ripped off please go here. The service was very bad and slow. The Owner of the place was running around and wanted nothing to do with her paying customers. The place is so small there isn’t any room to move and you are sitting on the next table over. No One seems to have a clue what is going on. All the servers do is run around and look busy. If you ask for something you are NOT going to get it. Also the person who handles contracts is not there on weekend so if something isn’t right you have to fight to get it fixed. ***PLEASE DON’T GO HERE*** not even to try it!!!! SAVE YOUR MONEY!!!!
