Went to Santé on a Friday
Went to Santé on a Friday night in March and was pleasantly surprised to see the place nearly empty. This was not our first visit at this restaurant. We have always love the food and ambiance here. the service is also professional and attentive. Mind you, there were only two other tables that were occupied in the restaurant, but nonetheless. The food is good and you can't beat the 3rd floor location with it's amazing view of Rideau St and Colonel By through its massive windows.
Prices are reasonable. Would highly recommend for those who enjoy a quiet, romantic restaurant that won't break the bank.
Well done, Santé!

Held a luncheon family reunion
Held a luncheon family reunion on a Saturday. Had the corner table overlooking the Chateau Laurier. The main course was excellent, the service friendly, if a bit slow. The desserts however were too dry. Overall a good experience and I would go back.

Food and Service were excellent. A bit skimpy on the amount of wine, if you buy only a glass.

We go to Sante about 6-8 times
We go to Sante about 6-8 times a year and always enjoy our meals there.
This time, it was an anniversary meal and both of our dishes (Lobster for my wife and Rib-eye for me) were cooked to perfection and had succulent sauces to add to the experience. Our waiter, David, was attentive, helpful, and also very pleasant with whom to chat.
We look forward to our next visit there.

What a surprise to find a restaurant that presents you and your birthday guest with a glass of complimentary champagne at the beginning of the meal and complimentary chocolate cake for the finish. This is service! My guest was not only surprised but delighted.

28th Wedding Anniversary
Sante sent us a bonus discount for our Anniversary which reminded me how much I like that restaurant. We decided to go and have a romantic lunch. It was very nice and I like some of the changes to the menu...the Greek salad was yummy and the Apple Pie was excellent.

Cave Spring Wine Tasting
This was a delightful evening with an informed host, one of the business partners of the Ontario winery, Cave Spring. The food was superb! The wine and service were good.
I have eaten at Sante off and on for about 15 years. The quality of the food had gone down, but has now returned to its previous high standard. Was a special effort made for the wine tasters? Hope this is the standard. The meal was so good, I remember all the dishes and ingredients. I have described the meal in detail to many friends. I'll definitely return.

Great food, great location
Went to Santé on September 17, 2013 for dinner. Had the pad thai (spicy) and it was delicious. The crab calaloo soup was also so good. While the dessert options were minimal, I'm sure they would have been good but I was too full to eat after my wonderful meal. Great attentive service and the view from the restaurant is so beautiful. A nice tranquil evening with excellent food and great view. What more can you ask for?
