Unfortunately not able to give more than 2 stars. Short menu, extremely expensive. Presentation is simple and flat. Food taste equally to presentation.

Just came back from 3 weeks trip in France...
Dear restaurateurs. Please visit Europe just once to understand what French cuisine is. Visit Provence to taste food, and see food presentation...

Will place Sent Sovi last in the local restaurants' list.

Went here for the first time for our anniversary dinner and was not disappointed. Love the ambiance the most, noted that next time will sit outside in lovely garden setting. We wanted to be surprised, so ordered the $15 wine flight and $35 four course meal of the week and had a great time enjoying the meal. Tracy kept on checking on us to make sure we had all our needs met. The only thing missing is they had no mention of our anniversary even if I wrote this at my on line reservation. Before we left, purchased a gift certificate for our daughter so we can compare notes.

Sent Sovi has potential, the food is not bad and the cook shows promise. However the ambiance is outdated and not fitting for this kind of restaurant; the paint was cracked, the walls looked like a 1970's disco, and the entrance looked like someone found a small table and decided put a PC on top to use for reservations, cabling was lying on the floor. The waitress smelled like she had just smoked a cigarette, and the staff was continuously walking outside.
The price was expensive for this kind of restaurant, not a lot of choice on the menu, and really the claim to fame is a 6 course Chef menu for 95 dollars.
Would suggest to upgrade the interior, improve the service and revise the menu.

Came for birthday celebration and couldn't leave quick enough, didn't even stay for desert.
Service was really bad, when we came no one greeted us, the server barked at us to step outside though we had a reservation. We waited 15 minutes until we set ourselves outside.
Food was very disappointing. The starters were edible, but not tasted great. Our main dishes were worthy of fast food restaurant and you may eat them if you are drying from hunger.
So overall, recommend to avoid.

Very expensive, very small portions. We are not big eaters, but the portions are tiny. Both of us could have eaten more. The risotto was very good, but it was perhaps 3 tablespoons in a bowl. The service was very good, the food was ok but I have had better. The dessert was very weak as was the starter. This is not a restaurant we will return to.

The food was below average and yet expensive. There is so little food. I have never gone to a restaurant and came home hungry. This place is overrated and it should be closed down.

One of my favorite restaurants. Always a pleasurable experience and one I frequently recommend to others.

The servers were more that attentive. They were at the table asking if everything was OK every 5 minutes. Every dish ( with remarkably small portions) came with a complete backstory, listing origins etc. The frequent visits made the wait between courses less of a chore although it didn't facilitate conversation. I do not understand why the rolls were rationed. Instead of a bread tray, a server came by with one tiny roll at irregular intervals. I had skipped lunch based on the restaurants glowing reviews and was really hungry by dinner time. The whole experience seemed to be an exercise in pretentions. The staff were much more impressed by what they were offering than we were.
