I've never visited Sugarcane for the warm and fuzzy service; it has never existed. That said, the food was once enough to lure me back to experience the punishment doled out by the staff. Where else would you go, and have the staff (especially the bartenders) force you to take control of your dining experience? I've sat and watched them communicate via grunts and nods of the head: Who does that? Is the clientele not worthy of communication? About two weeks ago is when I decided that enough is enough! On top of the indifferent and sometimes rude staff, I was served a red snapper that was so not fresh; I could smell that it wasn't fresh as it was placed in front of me. Anyhoo, I replaced it with oxtails, a dish that was once stellar at this place, but one that I could only pretend to enjoy on this particular evening. Sugarcane, you need to get it together, and stop taking your patrons for granted.! If you were a restaurant catering to another ethnic group, you would have closed long ago, because they don't stand for the kind of sh!t you force your customers to endure.
Me and my friend went to sugar canes on friday The food was delicious and the drinks were also good Try the mango Mojito.
It a nice cozy atmoshphere great for girls night out or when your going on a Date.
About a month ago i went to surgarcane with a friend when we got there it wasn't so crowded we waited about an hour for a table that was kind of annoying but afterwards when we were seated and ordered i felt better the callaloo and macaroni pie is to die for im not trini im belizean but it made me say ooooo GOD when it was time to leave it began to get very crowded i would love to introduce surgarcane to anyone if there looking for an island taste of things somewhere they can just lime bout and enjoy its a nice place but i think if they just expand it a little bit more it will be more comfortable seating wise.
fist of all i arrived with a terrible attitude. my wife arrived a half hour late. we waited for almost 25 minutes to be seated. man was i hot. steaming ready to blow my top. then the hostess gave us a table near the kitchen door. i was ready to leave. fortunately we was given a new table.
the waitress was prompt and provided the water without being asked. it was cool and refreshing. i order the shrimp for starters. my wife and son ordered the jerk chicken wings. the food arrived in promptly and it was delicious. my conpliments to the chef. i love the sauce that came with the grilled shrimps. it was sweet and so savory. a delight to taste. my lust for the wings overcame me and i tasted a few of those wings and the wonderful sauce that came with them. right now i am dreaming of grilling some shrimp, but, without the sauce it would be a lost cause. it is so good it make me smile.
my entree was the trinidadian chinese fried chicken. ummmm ummmmmm good. it was crisp and spiced lovely. it had a wonderful sweet taste. now u gotta try the potatoe salad. southerner soul food joints can really learn about good potatoe salad here. and the calilou was so special. knock my wife's calilou out of the box. seasoned perfectly and the portion was more than ample. i am getting sleepy now cause i enjoyed the carribean confort food. i just gotta say i had a most excellent dining experience there. try it and u like me will love it.
The food there was great. Everything was delicious.You can't make a mistake choosing from the menu. However, don't go there on a Saturday night. It is beyond crowded, and people are standing over your table waiting for a seat. They aren't able to accommodate a Saturday night crowd. P.S. the bar stools are horrible.
