Contemporary American
The kind of neighborhood gathering for spirits, wine and bites in the Rice Village.
A courtyard entry with a summer-European feel – complete with candles and comfortable seating – leads the way into an inviting space where the casual and friendly hospitality set the stage.

Whether sharing stories at the friendly bar, sitting in an intimate corner or gathering with a group at the community table, there’s always something interesting to see, and definitely, always something great to eat and drink at Simone on Sunset.

We have amazing cocktails that will tantalize your palate. Don’t be afraid to ask our bartenders for something special and not the usual Rum and Coke.

Service very slow and inaccurate on a Saturday. Long waits for water, drinks and simple food orders. Orders and checks brought to wrong tables. Food undistinguished, cocktails ok, wine selection eclectic but there are better options in same price ranges. Would not recommend and wouldn't return if spending my own money.

I have always enjoyed going to this place. However, my last visit here was unremarkable. Our waitress was extremely rude and unattentive. When asked questions about the menu, she didn't appear to have much knowledge. She never checked on us during our meal. When we asked for the check, she threw the bills on the table. The food was also not up to par. We usually leave a 20% tip for ordinary service and more if exceptional. In this case, we left less than 10% and even that hurt!

I had an absolute wonderful time here the staff was super fun and accommodating. I still think about the duck pizza we got and the wine was amazing as well. The place was gorgeous with a great ambience. Everything was amazing but the staff was the best part.

Beef carpacio. Interesting
Humus & beef tartare
Pizza margarita good

Only one issue. There is no steak option on menu
( why?).

We went for dinner, but they had only appetizers, not a full on meal. It's definitley more of a wine / cheese, go there for a game night happy hour kind of place. Overall, it had a great vibe and we enjoyed ourselves.

Service was not great. Had reservations and had to wait to be seated bc hostess was nowhere to be found. Service was slow and after our drinks came out no one returned until we stopped another person on staff to bring us the check. Patio was chill and noise level was low. I will not recommend visiting. I personally will not be returning.

Got there and waited 25 minutes before a serve even noticed us and then told us she’d be right there. Waited another 10 minutes before we gave up and left! Also another couple that showed up 10 minutes after us got waited on before us. Will not return

Our experience was awful.

Food: The drinks were the best thing, we got Moscow mules. The shisito peppers were cold and lacked flavor; it’s as if they tossed them with a bad salad dressing. The edamame was flavorless as well (very little thought was put into this dish). The hummus was extremely sour, how do you mess up hummus? The samosas were cooked well but lacked flavor. We ordered a pizza but it took so long to arrive that we just cancelled it.

Service: We came on a Saturday night and the whole restaurant had a delay in food because of a party going on. No one around us had food and the staff seemed highly unorganized.

Vibe: The vibe was nice with paintings and dimmed lighting. I felt bad for the table in front of the wine bookshelf because anytime they needed wine they would have to reach over the people at that table. We felt bad for them.

My recommendation is to drink here but not to eat here. They do well with drinks, but food quality and service is poor. It’s really just bad bar food.

There isn't someone who is checking the reservations. The waiter outside took forever to serve us, or bring us the bill. They do not follow any covid19 guidelines. none of the waiters or staff were wearing masks.

We came to enjoy what we understood is a reasonably well curated wine collection. Wait person did not know wines and one was bad and they knew it was in question. Appreciate the honesty though. Just not sure why they would serve it. During COViD so we reserved outside or would not have come. So many people smoking. Smoke in the air and smelly ashtrays. Seems like a poor practice if you want guests to enjoy your foods and wines. Food seemed average but let’s face it we would not be able to discern with the smoke.

Visited on a Saturday night. The crowd was young adults with lively house music. The ambience was relaxing with limited indoor seating. I would return with my husband for a drink.
