I spent several years working in restaurants in the past, as anything from server to host to manager. So I’m admittedly a little picky about the service, food and experience I have whenever I go out to eat.
At Söntés, I have had several great experiences when meeting friends for drinks, getting a late-night dessert, trying a few appetizers to start out the evening, or enjoying a full dinner. Söntés has a comfortable, relaxing atmosphere, and I’ve enjoyed going there for many different occasions. I especially enjoy the nights when there’s live music, as Söntés often hosts local musicians.
Something I really appreciate about Söntés is the service—from the host to the bartender, servers, and managers. I’ve had excellent, knowledgeable service throughout many experiences. Servers often have helped me decide which menu items to order and explained items in a way I could understand.
Also, I appreciate that I can go to Söntés for just a drink after work, or I can go for dinner during a girls’ night out with friends. I’ve also had the opportunity to attend some of Söntés’ special events, such as a bacon-themed dinner or an Irish-themed dinner and dance. These were such fun experiences—I’d highly recommend the special events Söntés offers throughout the year.
Also, I enjoy trying the wide variety of food at Söntés, and how I can always try many new items. And I like the fresh food Söntés offers from local farms—it just tastes better when food is that fresh!
Overall, I really appreciate that I can have this fun, interesting experience at Söntés, a different experience from many other restaurants, for about the same price that I’d pay at another restaurant. I think Söntés’ mix of excellent food and drinks, great service, and comfortable atmosphere are what make Söntés unique, and why I will keep going back.
