Critic Consensus: Sweetbitter fails to live up to its well-received literary source material -- or stand out from the many big-city coming-of-age television series that came before it.

News & Interviews for Sweetbitter: Season 1
Sweetbitter has some sensory pleasures, a good cast and better wine (or so we're told). Otherwise occasionally pretentious and ultimately superficial.
It's shallow to the point of being narcissistic, and that's not the kind of series anyone needs.
Given the cultural obsession with looking at great food on TV screens, it seems natural that Sweetbitter would translate well to the TV screen. But alas, the Starz show feels like a shadow of its literary self.
The ultimately charming series explores the existential questions of a nearly quarter-life crises with sincerity, not cynicism, which gives it an unexpected warmth.
