Our 2nd time enjoying Sona. A beautiful evening. The food was incredible!, once again. Delicious!! Our waitress was very attentive, always checking to see if we needed anything. The patio is beautiful, relaxing, with great music in the background. Thank you Katie for another fun night. We’ll be back

Excellent all the way around! Both times I ate here I asked for pasta Primavera which is not on the menu, but was made for me, and was so delicious! My friend also ordered it when she ate there. It really should be a menu item. We have referred so many of our friends to your restaurant, and all have been completely satisfied with the meal and service. The only thing we would have liked is that the bread is served warm. Other than that, no complaints!

This was an amazing experience. We had a quiet table inside. The service was exceptional. The food was hot & appealing. This meal was on par with the Italian restaurants on Erie Street in Windsor. We met the owner & felt well cared for for the dinner. We will be back for sure!!

We are inside but saw the outside after when we were leaving. Outside looks awesome along with the outdoor bar. Great setup. Owner was very sweet. Food was excellent, however it came out way too quick, wanted to stay a bit longer and enjoy wine with dinner but we didn’t get through our first cocktails. Would return on patio :)

Our server was very attentive. The charcuterie board was delicious but less cheese and some olives would have made it perfect. I found the spaghetti carbonara to lack flavour. I really missed having my coffee after my meal. Even a Keurig coffee would have been welcomed while you are waiting for your coffee maker. Overall, our dining experience was superb and we will be back and will recommend your restaurant.

Helpful staff with carrying walker up and down the stairs to the lower level. Chicken dish -- chicken overcooked. Steak -- perfect!!! Could only eat 1/3. Took rest home and had 4 more meals of it. Quite pricey but generally a good experience.

When I booked I did not realize it was a prefixed menu and 100 dollars a person. If had I wouldn't have booked. Although I was disappointed I must say the food was very good and portions were large.

Sorry , but very disappointed in the food! Every thing else was great. Maybe it was just we chose poorly but I had the short rib special and it was tasteless and dry. My husband had spaghetti carbonara and was dry, needed more sauce and super salty. The appetizer we had was great though!

Food was good, service was slow for our table of five. Server advised she had tables both upstairs and downstairs, forgot follow up to our queries, and was slow to deliver drinks after order was taken. Perhaps consider better staffing for weekends.

Felt like wait staff inexperienced. I love this restaurant but this visit was not so great. I watched other tables experience the same frustration and it was sad to see. Food is great and it’s unfortunate the wait staff ruins the experience. Jessica D should not be waiting tables. :(

Server was pleasant but new and did not know much about the food or drinks. I know people have to learn, but not on a Friday night. They are asking prices as a high end restaruant so I expect experienced servers. Asked for onions on the pizza and didn't get them. Prices incorrect on the menu. No pizza menu or topping choices. No mention of cauliflower crust.
