The restaurant has white table clothes, the waitstaff are very friendly and helpful. The chicken is good, but the waffles are amazing! Try their traditional fried chicken and waffles. They have a very good selection of starters and mains to choose from and the prices are reasonable. Their local beer, a Harlem brew, is very nice to try, it's called 'Sugar Hill Golden Ale'.
Tips: 'Smothered Chicken' mean just that, smothered in rich, brown gravy. Unless you absolutely adore brown gravy, it's better without. After your meal, why not take a walk around Harlem on the way to Central Park. Not only will you walk off lunch, but you will get a feel of the area. Have fun! :)

Very disappointed to share that soul flavors closed earlier this month. My understanding is that they never really recuperated from the financial damage caused by Hurricane Sandy...

Had a great meal, ribs were excellent, chicken stew great, everybody liked the mashed sweet potatoes. Small restaurant, great staff and BYOB so your bill is reasonable; can't beat that.

So excited to finally have some southern cooking. I haven't had a biscuit since moving to Jersey. We ordered the cornbread/biscuit appetizer. Cornbread was good, but munchkin size. The biscuits were ok. Cod cakes disappointing. The Mac-n-cheese good, but not great. The mash potatoes were so runny they served with a spoon. They were flavorless. I asked for gravy. The gravy was very good but was an additional $2 charge. The sweet potato cheesecake tasted old. The only reason they are receiving 3 stars instead of one is because of our server. The restaurant was full and she was working by herself and did an excellent job keeping up with the tables.

Great classic soul food all made from scratch, just make sure to bring your own wine/beer and block off a good chunk of time as it will take a while to eat, but it's sooooo worth it. Love the fried chicken and mac and cheese
