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

I LOVED the food. It was delicious and not too pricey. The staff is friendly. The location is very busy and parking is tough because it's Flatbush but you can find some on the side streets.

Because it's small I wouldn't really recommend it as a first date spot because it can get a little crowded - not too much privacy.

Curry Mango! I had the chinese fry chicken wings with tambrand sauce and a chicken dhalpourie with curry mango on the side. Then there was the rum punch. What more can I say. I wish they had one in DC!

Pros: Great food | Great drinks

Cons: You better bring good company for a good time

This is the best caribbean food that I have ever had and that's why I keep going back. If you want a true west indian experience straight from the island of Trinidad & Tobago then Sugarcane is the place to be. Please note that you should make reservations ahead of time for any weekend dinner plans. IF not the wait can be over 2 hours since this place is very popular but very small. Call ahead! Then when you get to the table have the appetizer sampler and order the roti and curry chicken. Yummy!

while visiting from England, my two cousins, took me to this place, i would not go as far as much to say is that it is really not a resturant as i think only maybe 6 sets of table it is in my opinion, a bar that wants to be a resturant, but the space is far too small, and the music loud enough to be a club
we ate, i had asked for a drink strainght, no ice, so they bring it , full up of ice, so i let that one go , ordered a steak well done, it came cut into it, it was red rare, they took it away, and surposeddly cooked it some more, and it was a little rubbery, came back not much different, gave up so i would not really go there again

Now the food was great! The price was ok. Its was waaay too crowded and the service was extremely slow. Be warned: Bring cash do not use your credit card. They tacted on a extra $20 even after we left a cash tip. If you dont mind going thru all that for some good food, then enjoy!

I had a chicken sandwich because of the menu (not appealing). Good drinks (mojito), great people on staff and good customers. Very cramped- more of a watering hole than restaurant.

I visited Sugar Cane Restaurant for the first time last night and I must say that it was quite a delightful experience! There was about a 20 min wait before we got seated but it was all worth it after we got in. Wendell, who worked at the door was very pleasant and would continually give us updates about how long it will take till we get a table and that he didn't forget us. Even after we got a table he would pass by and ask us how we were doing, if we needed anything and was always available to answer any questions we had. Within 12 minutes of being seated we were served our drinks and appetizers. The drinks are out of this word - very creative, colorful , tasty and reasonably priced. I had a delicious sour sop colada and my girlfriend had the sorrel mojito. Our waiter was very pleasant, professional and did not make us feel rushed at all. It took about 15 minutes to get the food and when it came it was out of this world. The presentation was fabulous, and when we finally tasted it it tingled all the senses! I had the oxtail, macaroni pie and the best tasting callaloo I have ever tasted (and coming from a Trini that says alot). My girlfriend had the curry shrimp, rice and peas and plantains - she couldn't even finish her meal since the servings were so large. She truly enjoyed the trini syle rice and peas that we were use to and said the food was very, very tasty. The ambiance was elegant, great crowd, friendly bartender and the surroundings had a fancy manhattan feel but we were right here in Brooklyn. Great place to hang with friends or sit by the bar and enjoy good music and a great vibe.
Kudos to the Chief, Management and staff of Sugar Cane Restaurant. I will be telling all my friends about it and I will definitely be going back again and again and again.

Pros: Great food, drinks, service, staff. Conveniently located on flatbush.

Cons: Music was a bit loud and it could be a bit more spacious.

I think the popularity of Sugarcane is causing it to not be the same. It is extremely packed and the service is horrific. It takes forever to get seated and get served.

If you want to get your drink on or just chill with friends, i highly suggest. If you are extremely hungry, go at your own risk. The dishes are sometimes bland (not seasoned to perfection) As a Jamaican, I have high expectation when it comes to caribbean cuisine.

If you need a scene and want to people watch - Sugarcane is for u

Sugarcane deserves kudos for creating an authentic caribbean atmosphere, I must admit, I go there for the ambience created by the music and the people. The food is average at best and not very good when you factor in the prices. I've had the jrk chicken, which though tasty, still lack that bite, it was much better a few years ago. I am a native Brooklynite and grew up in Flatbush, as such I know places like Fisherman Cove (or even Mom) can offer a much tastier meal at a fraction of the price. However if you are looking for a sit-down dinner or even drinks w/friends in a cool, friendly and festive spot, I would highly recommend sugar cane.

I eat out quite often and I heard about Sugarcane from a friend so i decided to give them a try.....the entrance looked a little dingy so I became skeptical but upon entering the restaurant I was impressed on what I found inside. The place was small yet nicely decorated although a lighting was an issue for me and reading the menu proved difficult as my vision is impaired and I wasn't use to the menu. The server was pleasant, the music was good....but to the best part THE FOOD.....excellent!!!!! I ordered the calypso steak with coconut rice and the callaloo puree was divine...a little spicy so i wouldn't recommend this menu item for anyone who can't handle spicy food. My steak was juicy and tender even though it was well done and the sauce was a little tangy. The coconut rice was a treat to my taste buds beacuse as a caribbean native its always been "rice and peas". The martinis were great, I had the watermelon and I got a nice chunk of watermelon which after being infused with the liquor was a nice bite at the end of my drink!! All in all a great visit...please try Sugarcane this weekend instead of Friday's!

After reading many reviews about the bad service I was a little learly about going there. I have now been there twice and all I can say is "what was everyone talking about?" The service was excellent. Everyone there has been so friendly, pleasant and helpful. A friend of mine who had not read the reviews commented to me about how nice everyone was. She couldn't believe it when I told her what I had read in the reviews.
The food was something everyone seems to have raved about (even when they didn't like the service). At this point I have had their ribs, ox-tails, chicken wings and bread pudding. Everything has been wonderful.
The live music beginning at 6:30 is a nice touch.
The place is nicely decorated.
I really can't find any fault with Sugarcane.
I look forward to my next visit.

This is a very nice restaurant with decent service and good food. Went with three other friends and we all ordered different things and we all enjoyed our food. The drinks were adventureous and worth the price. I will be going back.

I love to eat in Sugarcane, it's a really good West Indian place ! But the only thing I don't like about it, it's the people who work there. Guys if you don't enjoy working in that spot just leave !!!
We went there last night with my boy-friend around 11pm and the hotess was rude as hell ! She didn't care at all about us, so we left ! And it's pity because all my friends are thinking the samething : excellent food but HORRIBLE SERVICE !
So I m talking to the owner : Do something about your staff !!!

I have been to Sugar Cane a few times. Each time the service is consistently bad. There is a long wait to be seated (which I can deal with), when you're finally seated however, there is a very long wait before you're even acknowledged...or served (this i don't understand), then once you finally get your order in it's a long wait for your food. To make it worse, the past couple times I got my food it was damn near cold - lukewarm at best. My date had to ask them to stick his food in a microwave or something . I felt pretty bad that we had to ask, but it was ridiculous. After waiting that long..you really want hot food that you can enjoy. Anyway, I hope the restaurant gets better - I won't be back for a few months. There's alot more I can write, but I'll stop here. First things first, we have to get the customer service better. This place has so much potential, the food when served hot is really good!! I really hope management deals with the kinks asap.

If you are looking for good tasting food and drinks and don?t mind the wait (avg 30 mins or more) to be seated, and the wait to place the order, and the wait to get the food then this is the place for you. Do not get me wrong this place has great food, style and ambience, but service is terrible. I have eaten here many times and it is the same bad service each time. My friends love this place so I am usually out voted. This is a good restaurant, but it lacks qualified restaurant management.

This was my second time and I must confess it was worst than the first time, on arrival we were told there was a 30 min wait but we did not mind since we didn't have reservations. we decided to wait at the bar area which you had to play musical chairs with other patrons if you wanted to sit. The drink which I ordered was missing its garnish and poorly mixed. After seeing a couple which came in after us being seated we went to the hostess and was told they had reservations which I knew they didn't have because when asked if they had reservations they said no, I guess if you're not in her face she will eventually forget about you she also had the audacity to tell us we would have to wait another 40 mins to be seated. I told my date we should try somewhere else if we wanted to eat dinner before midnight we ended up at a nice italian restaurant on 5th Ave. I will still love to experience the sweetness sugarcane has to offer and I believe in 3 strikes and your out but the next time I go back and I leave with another sour taste in my mouth I definitely will not be going there again.

This small yet quaint spot is lively and active with soca music playing and very nice and professional staff. After reading others reviews I was expecting rude and nasty staff but everyone was pleasant and we didnt feel rushed at all. The food is unbelievable and worth the price. The jerk/stew chicken with rice and peas and cabbage was the best Ive had in a LONG time.

I will definitely go back and with the exception of the small space and long lines to wait for a table, it will be worth the trip once you sit and start feasting.

Have visisted Sugar Cane like 10 times. A lot of carribean folk swear by it because they have never had a carribean joint that combined ambience with great food. Im a chef, so i'll be brutally honest. The food is Good, and old favorites are given new twists, presentation is great! The problem is that a lot of west indians(proud west indian myself) stop at good food. They completely forgo SERVICE! It seems that they hire relatives and freinds for waitstaff @ SugarCane! (i)Serve water! I shouldnt have to ask!(ii)Dont hover over my table waiting for me to finish or keep asking me every 3 minutes if im done with my meal! just because they need to sit other guests! its not my fault the place is small! (iii)hire better bartenders! with the exception of the 'dread'..the rest of them NEED TO BE FIRED!!(iv)smile people! its called hospitality for a reason! the restaurant is not in Brownsville, its in Park Slope!... Like i said, the food is good ,and im not big on west indian restaurants because i am west indain and can prepare all west indian dishes. Anyway, my issue with them is Service!Service!Service. I've eaten @ some of the greatest restaurants in NY and its never just about the FOOD! NO MATTER HOW GOOD THE FOOD IS, IF THE SERVICE IS BAD, THATS WHAT THE PATRON WILL REMEMBER FOREVER. A BAD EXPERIENCE CAN WIPE ANY GOOD TASTES AND FLAVORS FROM A PERSONS MOUTH AND MIND FOREVER! Take heed management, I will be visiting for an 11th time in hopes that you guys will hire COMPETENT, FREINDLY & KNOWLEDGABLE STAFF. kUDOS TO THE CHEF..MENU DESIGNED WELL. Recommended dishes:(i)Try the Bake n' Shark-great if youre just looking to grab a drink and bite at the bar! (ii)The oxtail, my girlfreind is the Oxtail Expert (she has had it everywhere) and she said sugarcanes was the best she ever had! In Closing; Spell it with me people: S-E-R-V-I-C-E !! - GRENADA CHEF.

So i have lived in Brooklyn for a while now and have always heard about this Caribbean restaurant which has great food. I decided to take a walk and try the infamous sugarcane restaurant i've been hearing so much about. Once entering i was greeted by the hostess whom was extremely friendly (and pretty :-). Although my wait was long, as i had no reservations the hostess assured me that the wait would be worth it. I can tell you that I was NOT disappointed, from the drinks (i had a sorrel martini), to all the enticing appetizers I did not know which to choose from. I finally had the jerrk wings and the guava glazed salmon, which I must say was absolutely delightful. Although the service was a bit slow overall i cannot complain. In the lively DJ great food and drinks compensated for the long wait.

the decor was great as well as the food and dessert but I was rushed off my table by a rude guy who I later found out to be a part-owner who seemed to care only in getting the table for more persons after waiting for almost 45 mins to be seated it think that was so unprofessional I will never and I say NEVER go back to that restaurant or recommend it.

My friends and I went to Sugarcane last night. Although there was a forty minute wait we decided to stick it out since the music was good and the drinks we ordered at the bar were tasty (although expensive for a neighborhood spot on Flatbush Ave)! Once seated the waiter took twenty minutes to take our order and by then we needed another round of drinks pronto! We ordered drinks, apps and dinner. Half way through our meal we still had no drinks. I politely asked our waiter and he said they would be right out. Fifteen minutes go by and still nothing! I politely expressed my dissatisfaction with our service and asked to speak to the manager regarding the prolonged wait. The manager/owner approached the table and immediately said, "I understand that you have a problem but there is nothing I can do!" There was no apology for the bad service and no attempt to try to make our experience there better. And then when I expressed that as patrons of his restaurant we would like to be appreciated, in response he remarked, "well you have to pay for your drinks and there is nothing I'm going to do!" and walked away in the middle of the conversation! A few minutes later, the waiter came and said that he was sorry, but if we didn't pay for our drinks that he would have to at the end of his shift. The waiter was new and inexperience, but it was not his fault that the bar lost our drink order and that the owner was so rude about the situation. Usually when a restaurant makes a mistake the owner at least apologizes and tries to compensate for their poor service so as not to lose good patrons. Instead what I received was no appreciation or any consideration that our table had just ordered a $147 worth of food. At Sugarcane, it?s not about giving their customers a nice dining experience but about getting their money!!! I work hard for my money and therefore I rather spend it in an establishment that appreciates their clientele...I hope you do the same!

Pros: Good food, tasty drinks, nice crowd

Cons: Very poor service, rude manager, smail bar, long wait and no where to stand comfortably except the sidewalk

Three strikes and they are out!!! Made reservation for a specific time and ended up waiting an hour and a half to be seated. The service was horrible and the food was not that great. This was my third time there so this was not a fluke.

Sugarcare is a great caribbean restaurant with a lively atmosphere and excellent food. If you go on a Saturday night expect to wait quite a bit for seating but the food is worth it. The space is cramped but it's a nice homey vibe. I did not like the accra appetizer but it could have just been a one night fluke.

A friend of mine introduced me to SugarCane about 2 years ago, and let me tell you I LOVE IT!!! Whilst you are waiting to be seated, you have the option of sitting at the bar and having a cocktail - my personal favorite is the Sorrel Martini, and listening to the latest in Island Jams or old favorites. If you are looking for authentic Trinidadian food - short of your grandmother's cooking - this is the place to get it. My boyfriend who is an American, considers this to be by far his favorite restaurant - cannot get callalou like that anywhere else.

I have also found SugarCane good for a girls night out - good music, food, no cover charge and if you have a young member of your party - eg my 18 yr old cousin, they can still get in - just not hang at the bar.

In reference to other negative reviews regarding service- I have to repeat the age old adage " Behavior breeds Behavior" - if you approach someone correctly and not as your servant, and take the time to know and address your waitress by name, you will find that your service is a lot better.

Island people do not like to be talked, looked or addressed down to. If you understand island culture, then you would have no problem at a place like SugarCane or any other West Indian Restaurant. By nature Island People are more relaxed and tend to move at a slower pace, this is not a sign of disrespect but rather a way of doing things " no need to rush."

I read all of the glowing reviews about Sugarcane, and decided to take my girlfriend at the time there for her birthday in April of 2005. I rightly made reservations, and my girlfriend along with her homegirls met me there right on time. The hostess looked beautiful, but had a bit of a nasty attitude (beauty is no excuse for acting like the world owes you something for being graced by your presence). When we were finally seated, the waitress that we were cursed with was very unresponsive, snooty, and seemed to be bothered by the fact that we were asking her to actually DO HER JOB while she was there. After she turned up her nose and rolled her eyes at my girl one too many times, and ignored my party in order to go hold a riveting conversation with one of her colleagues, I finally decided that no matter how good the food smells, it was time for us to leave. We all ended up going down the way to Junior's. where the service is always impeccable and friendly. I also ended up spending $230 that night at Juniors!!! I have worked in customer service for over 5 years now, and I have learned that good customer service can turn bad situations into good ones, and bad customer service can spoil the reputation of an otherwise reputable brand. Sugarcane is a unique and seemingly inviting place, but until they check the customer service, they shall never achieve their full potential.

Cons: Bad service.

This place was an absolute find! The food- fantastic, atmosphere- trendy, music- a bit loud, but enjoyable. I referred my very picky friends to this place and they all LOVE it!

Two problems:
1) A few members of the wait staff have the typical Caribbean attitude (I should know). But once you engage them, they show their true side: fun-loving and friendly. Don't let this put you off. The majority of the staff members are nice and helpful.
2) The place is TOO SMALL! You have to wait for a table which is much too close to your neighbor.

Helpful hint to Sugarcane: Buy out the store next door! You need to expand. You can definitely count on my business.

I went to Sugarcane for the first time last year. Although my food and drinks were ok although pricey for waht you were getting, the experiance was marred by the rudeness of our waitress, who was inattentive and condescedning . I tried to go agian last night becuases I kept heard ongoing good reports and reserved a table for five. When we four arrived there, our fifth person called to cancel and I infomred the restuarant. Although there was no other part y of 5 reserved of on the waiting list the hostess and the manager refused to sit us at our original table. They told us we had to wait, as if we didn't have a reservation, for the next available table of 4. As the time for our reservation came and went ,they kept us waiting. Fed up, we left walked down the street to MELT spent a hefty 150$ for a delicous, attentive dinner. Stay away from this place.!There are so many good restaurants in Brooklyn to choose from and spend your money for proper service. Its unfortunate that there not more cool Island places to choose from ...but this places food and decor DO NOT MAKE UP FOR RUDE BEHAVIOR...

I went there a few weeks ago with a former co-worker and we were treated so poorly; these folks are in the wrong industry! The staff needs a thorough lesson in customer service. We felt as though we were asking for their business, when it should have been the other way around. The appetizers we ordered were heated in the microwave and had a rubbery consistency to it. The place has potential, but first they should send the staff to the School of Manners! I would not recommend at this point!

This place is definitely a gem. The problem with many West Indian restaurants is a) you have a long wait to get your food and b) Even though the meal may be tasty the presentation normally not priority. Here at Sugarcane none of those factors is a problem you get prompt service, the large portions of food gets there in a timely fashion and usually has this nouvelle cuisine look, the bartenders are very friendly and make you feeel like family and there are night when you get live entertainment. Only downside is it is a small place and therefore can only accomodate no more than 25 people at one time anything more than that it is chaotic and crowded. But the place is so great that patrons don't mind waiting outside rather than go to another restaurant which you can find at least 10 in short walking distance. So if that does'nt sell you on visiting nothing else will.

If you love food from the Caribbean, Sugarcane is a must! The food is outstanding and the service is prompt. *Don't miss out on the watermelon martini*. I had the oxtail dish with streamed cabbage and calaloo. My friend had the jumbo shrimp dish and said it was some of the best she's ever tasted. The portions are large, so be prepared to share. We visited on a Friday night and waited 45 minutes to be seated (party of 5), but it's worth the wait!

The food here is delicious! It is worth the wait, because fast food does not mean that it will be exquisite; and the food was definitely good. BETTER YET THE FOOD IS DAMN GOOD! You will have to taste the drinks to see for yourself that this restaurant is on point with pleasing their customers tastebuds.

After much to do about Sugarcane I venture in on Sunday April 2, 2006 for dinner with two friends. First observation, the establishment needs more staffing; the hostess/receptionist should improve her disposition (she is the first person to greet the guests). Bartender, should not be taking dinner orders on napkins. Dinners are served with utensils (fork, knife, spoon). Guests should not have to ask for them. Last but not least WATER, WATER, PLEASE SERVE WATER, again guests should not have to ask for water. We never got a table. The is no reason why three grown women, each standing over 5'9 should try and eat their dinner while sitting on bar stools.

Attended with 5 girlfriends on Christmas Eve to celebrate a birthday. After waiting for our waitress to address us, then to be ignored by her, then for her to roll her eyes because we asked her to return our sour drinks, she then told every waitress and waitor about out encounter which made them look at our table with the same disdain. We tried to continue our night in cheer, in which we received our bill and saw that the drinks we returned were still on it. We were forced to call the manager who explained that their policy isn't to remove returned food or drinks from the bill even if they were STALE. Overall the experience was absolutely terrible, the staff needs manners and management needs an overhaul!

My girlfriends and I discovered Sugar Cane over a year ago and are now faithful patrons. The menu is wonderfully put together with dishes that will appeal to everyone and reasonably priced. The house salad is not your standard salad by any means. I'm craving it right now. I love their drinks - so exotic and absolutely love how intimate the place is although the music can drown out the soft-spoken. If you're on a date, it's reason to get close. It's a hot spot and is very small so most evenings it's crowded - on the weekends forget about immediate seating w/o a reservation. There is a bit of lethargy among the waitstaff and can definitely be improved upon. But the food, atmosphere and company always makes up for the service. Hope this helps.

First of all, everytime my girls from around the country get together we always go to the Sugar Cane! It's has fantastic music food and superb drinks ( made just right!) and it's right here in brooklyn. MChose Sugar cane and make reservations , if you just want to kick back enjoy some reggae/soca/hip-hop tunes and look at beautiful people. With all this the waitstaff and crown is no where near pretentious. I highly recommend this pplace even though there is a wait...

Right off the top: the service here is HORRIBLE. I've been twice--the food & drinks are slamming, and the ambiance makes it a chill spot. My second visit was awful. We were not seated by a hostess (and as a result didn't receive menus or water for a good while) and were rushed out as the restaurant closed an hour after we arrived. Fine, you say (typical NY restaurant, right?) but the straw that broke the camel's back were the attitudes of both the waitresses that served me. Rude, rude, RUDE.

I refuse to spend my money there again--it's obvious that management counts on the customers to overlook the restaurant's major flaw and spend their money b/c the place is alluring & fills a void for the community, but you just lost one! Get it together, people.

This spot is the place to chill with special someone or with the best friends in your life. The music is kind of loud but so are the people who are trying to speak. I did not feel bad when I had to speak over everyone. The food is excellent I had the Mango flavored ribs and my friend had the trini chicken and a side of calaloo. The service was excellent the hostess was extremely helpful, and our waitress attended to us every minute. Anyone who does not like this place must not have any patience at all. It is a popular spot so that explains why it is so crowded. I made reservations i suggest others do the same.

just off busy flat bush avenue is this
well decorated quaint but hip spot. the color
and the shape of everything insides adds such a
delicate air to the ambience. The drinks tropical and fresh,
the service impecable and delightfully caribbean.

many are turned off from spicy creole caribbean cuisine
i took three american friends and they enjoyed the
array of spices and meat. We all left with
full bellies and a filled mind from finding such
a romantic spot with great food, and massive
potential for growth

I enjoyed the Shrimp Rasta Pasta, Chicken Roti and a Mango mojito. Which was all very good. The service was terrible,and the staff needs alot of work. They weren't rude, they just didnt seemed clueless. I would still go back to this place for the food, atmosphere and creative menu. The place is very cozy and the tables dont turn over often, so Definitely make reservations!

If you are adventurous with your spirits, then you must try the Sorrell Martini, with the Jerk chicken wings (get plenty of water) and the Mango Chow.
It's a little tiny, but cozy.

Went to Sugarcane last night with three other guests. The food was great, but talk about the worst service! My food came first. 5 minutes later, one of the three guests got their order. TWENTY MINUTES LATER (I kid you not!!) another one of my guests received her order, and then TEN MINUTES LATER (ain't that ridiculous??), my last guest got her order. By the time the last guest got her food, we were all done.
To the manangement at Sugarcane....PLEASE GET YOUR ACT (AND FOOD ORDERS) TOGETHER!!! That was the worst I've ever experienced!!

Always heard of this place. Went on a Fri nite. IT WAS PACKED!!! Food is definitely worth it. I work in food & customer service so I can tell u that the staff needs work! Drinks were on point. Ive read all the callaloo ratings & I must say it was good BUT I can make better! Kewl for girls' nite out BUT very small. DEFINITELY make reservations! The appetizer plate was off the hook! Calypso steak was cooked to perfection! This is for sure what Brooklyn needed. Drawback: MUSIC TOO LOUD! By the way the cilantro sauce is actually the VERY PUNGENT chadon beni !

Pros: food, food, drinks

Cons: loud music, small, waistaff
