Once you walk in, you'll be blown away with the careful balance between elegance, and southern comfort. The food is exquisite, with entree's that blend gourmet dining with southern traditions. I had the Carolina Salmon Flourentine which was cooked to rich perfection, with salmon that fell apart in your mouth, and a sweet potato corn bread that takes you right back to your mom's kitchen.

The wine selection is very large, and the service is attentive, helpful and down right nice. The owners are two of the nicest women you'll ever meet, and very good at what they do. And the ambiance is spectacular with jazz that reminds you of the Cosby Show, and large pieces of art celebrating the diversity of America.

You won't leave with out a satisfied tummy and a huge smile on your face.

This is a wonderful place to get authentic southern food. The catfish poboy is fantastic, as is the meatloaf sandwhich. They also have homemade sweet potatoe biscuits that are so yummy.

Sweet Potatoes is one of my favorite places to enjoy a delicious meal in a intimate setting. The food is delicious, whether it's lunch or dinner. I have always had fabulous service and the owners are known to come around and check on you. All in all, a very nice place to enjoy a relaxing lunch or an intimate dinner!

I love this place. For a southern food place more upscale then I had expected my first visit. With great food from fried chicken, duck and pork chops. When friends come from out of town they all want to return. Can be busy at peak times so may need to wait but its worth it.
Have not been there for brunch but did go to the sister restaurant which sadly closed, and food was excellent and looks like some item are the same including the sweet potato pancakes and chicken tenders one of the best things I've ever eaten- though lots of food.

This is one of my favorite lunch time spots. The food is original and wonderful. The desserts are forever changing. The strawberry/apple pie is wonderful!!! The Mambo Chicken Sandwich is out of this world. Good Service. This place stays packed for lunch and dinner... so be prepared to wait. However, the food and atmosphere is well worth the wait. Anyone visiting Winston Salem must eat here!!!!!

My favorite restaurant in the Piedmont Triad. Yummy, Southern comfort food served up in a warm, cozy environment. The owners take sincere pride in their food and use local ingredients whenever possible. This place is packed on Friday and Saturday nights--be prepared to wait, even if you have a reservation. Last summer, Dave Chappelle and his posse tried to get a table the night I was there and ended up leaving because it was too packed. Things to try: PImento Cheese with crackers/veggies as a starter, followed by either the shrimp and grits or the stuffed salmon florentine, and sweet potato cheesecake for dessert. Also, the restaurant is in the heart of the Arts District which is getting busier by the day with all the new construction and projects.

Sweet Potatoes is truly about sweet potatoes. I never have been much of a fan of southern cooking beyond the fried chicken with all of the sides. But the cooking here is a step above that. Soulful food that rarely uses sweet potatoes as the showcase but as a supporting character giving the dish it is paired with an authenticity of southern cooking but allows for a look forward with a New South type of cooking.

For starters, the sweet tea is as it should be full bodied tea with a sweetness that can only come from sugar syrup boiled with the tea not a watery drink.

We started with the Red & White Fries, sweet potato and russet potato fries drizzled with white cheddar cheese and bacon. The fries were meaty and crispy on the outside. Then we sampled the Fried Green Tomato and Okra dish. The tomato was done to perfection with the sourness tempered by the tang of buttermilk and fried in a crispy cornmeal coating and the okra crisply deep fried.

The Stephanie salad, a meal for two is a heaping concoction of ham, roasted sweet potatoes, white cheddar, and tomatoes on baby greens

Ma's Meatloaf featured two large wedges of a flavorful meat mixed with a good balance of spices and fillings. I would not be surprised if a sweet potato puree found itself in the dish. Sitting on a bed of mashed potatoes and topped with crispy onion strings, it would put any roadside diner meatloaf to shame.

The Pork Chop dish had two heft sized boneless chops sitting on a sweet potato cornbread dressing with the combination drizzled with sweet apple brandy gravy. The pork chops were moist and the dressing was superb with a good mix of textures and flavors but the gravy was a bit too gelatinous and did not added much to the dish.

So if you need to reestablish your southern bona fides with regional cooking, Sweet Potatoes should be your first choice.

PROS: Great Food, Best Sweet tea around, Great Atmosphere
CONS: None really
