    A beautiful restaurant with very friendly staff. However, the service itself was very slow. When choosing the "not-so bottomless" mimosa option for brunch, make sure to order 2-3 drinks at one time because you may be waiting a while for refills. Again, very friendly staff - just slower service.

    We went to Sauce after a commencement ceremony and were pleasantly surprised to find Sauce on the quieter side of things. It wasnt very busy but the food and service were excellent! Would love to eat here again when we’re in town again!

    The garlic knots and caprese were great. My dinner (alfredo) was bland and the bread was mediocre. My daughter had the salmon and liked that.

    Great location that’s lush 1940’s modernistic 2022. Elegant yet casual. Lunch sandwiches were luscious and filling. Burger served with style and seasoned fries were hot, crunchy and flavorful. Fresh pasta dishes are well cooked, Al dente, and the sauce… well… just amazing. Bar is inviting and staff is more than accommodating. Great place to celebrate any occasion. Seasonal rooftop dining is available. Parking is across the street or valet is available. Located on the main floor of hotel.

    GREAT ambiance. We came here for my wife’s birthday on a Friday night. We spent the first hour at the rooftop bar. It was not crowded and we both enjoyed our drinks and the beautiful view. Made our way down to the restaurant and were seated right away. Service was excellent and the food above average.

    Enjoyed a night out with dinner at Sauce. We stuck with traditional options and had a nice time. The bruschetta was a little hard and the chicken breast on our pesto pasta dish was a bit tough. Burrata salad was delicious. Service was good although a bit slow from the bar. We enjoyed our evening at Sauce.

    From the pictures on their website, I was expecting a very fine dining experience, however, it wasn't what I'm used to. I was dressed for the occasion (nothing special,just dinner with my wife) with suit and tie, and noticed right away most patrons were dressed in shorts and t-shirts. I ordered a bottle of wine, it was set on the table in the chiller, definitely not presented correctly, and no tasting for approval,but the wine was excellent. The food was pretty good, although they were no longer selling the menu item I originally wanted to order. The dessert (tiramisu) was excellent. Overall, food and drink were very good. The servers have not been instructed in fine dining service, (I would blame this on management, not the servers). I guess that's just "Flint fine dining" and, unfortunately, not up to my standards. The price was not bad, but I would rather pay more for a better dining experience.

    Excellent table service by the bartender, no less. Not sure if that was due to the light crowd or if staffing was an issue. Regardless, all patrons seemed well attended to from our view point. Food was excellent. Tried the Caprese, Tomato bisque soup and the lasagna. All were very good. Choice of 16 or 22oz drafts - nice touch for the beer drinkers among us. The Chianti went well with the meal. A bit pricey but we expected that going in.

    I must say, I have not been back to "Sauce" since we had our wedding there in October of 2021, but the food, service and warm feeling of the Italian family bleed through on this Mothers Day. Thank you for always making it a great experience and remembering the little things. Brian Frankovich

    Easter brunch- Bloody Mary was delicious and well worth the $. Service was slow- we waited several minutes for box then was brought a dirty one. We waited several more minutes for the waiter to pick up our payment. Food was ok.
