Sonata's Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
We heard about the 3 lamb chops and a bottle of wine for $20 on Monday nights for Happy Hour. It was amazing. I expected tiny chops for that price and they were definitely not small. The bar was full and for good reasons. We wil come back..... best deal in town!
The menu and service style have changed since our last visit. Both are positive changes. The menu is less Eastern European and has more appeal to American palates. The service is more orderly, courses come out for the whole table st the same time, rather than one plate at a time. We had the kabob, Chicken Kiev, and split a Caesar salad. We didn’t indulge in desert, but they certainly looked tempting.
My friend told me about this chop and bottle deal they just started (3 lamb chops and bottle of wine for $20) so we decided to get a group of people and check it out. The bar was full, the restaurant had a few tables available but it was pretty busy. The chops came with potatoe purée, both the lamb and potatoe purée were very good.
We all got various bottles of wine, some of girls couldn’t finish and took it home. Very good value. We will back soon.
This is a hidden secret in Scottsdale and shouldn't be. Excellent service, ambience and food. Reasonably priced and a great menu selection. Outside seating is great with the heaters and fireplace. Indoor is great too. We have enjoyed Sonata many times and will be back very soon.
My stepfather invited me to Sonatas for dinner. Very cozy place, it had the jazz playing in background, dimmed lighting, candle throughout the venue. We shared some Rockefeller oysters. I also had everything beets salad, it was beautifully plated, it had these cute marshmallows as garnish for the salads, one would not expect this combination but it worked well together.
My stepfather had the sea bass, he was raving about it and I had the bone marrow. All three dishes that we had came out as an art piece.
We have few special occasions coming up, this may be a great place to celebrate it.
I was looking for a nice place to take my mother for her 70th Birthday. We had been to Sonata for lunch a few times and had loved it. It was a "modern" bar and restaurant with a Eastern European menu. I hadn't been in the last few months so we decided it would be a good choice for the big 7-0.
I am not going to say the food was less than expected. It was good, not great. My father's Sea Bass was exactly what was expected. My mother ordered the Octopus Pasta and asked about the spice level and was told "a touch of spice, not too much". It was incredibly spicy. My mother is not someone who can take much spice. But she loves octopus so she powered through. But leaving a good portion of the fresh made pasta untouched because of it. She asked for some bread to try and offset the heat, but was given 3 thing strips of "bread". (We were charged 2.50 for this as well.) My Saffron Seafood Stew, was really more of a bowl of seafood, with a broth that was supposed to have "some spice" but was mild as mild can be.
Now this was my mother's 70th Birthday. It was listed as the "special event" on the Open Table reservation. We had gifts and made a big deal about it to both the hostess and the waitress but was never even given a simple "Happy Birthday". The table next to us was given a special Birthday desert but we were not even spoken to. Our waitress was nice, but a bit out of it. The bartender didn't understand the order of "Grand Manier in a hot snifter with a coffee back". He had to come to the table and get clarification, and then took extra time to get the coffee.
The night that should have been a great and fun evening was taken a back by service, lack of knowledge about the menu and just plain old ignorance.
Disappointing- 55 minutes before food came. The caprese salad looked good but the tomatoes were mealy then had to send my ribeye back, as it came rare (ordered it medium rare). The service left everything to be desired. The poor manager tried to make things right, but nothing was right.
I absolutely love, love, love Sonata's! If it's not the amazing dishes it's the great and personable service. I would recommend Sonata's for a date, party, birthday, etc.
If you want a truly amazing restaurant to experience this is the place. Just wait until you see the inside too, stunning!
Best brunch menu ever! HUEVOS RANCHEROS! Quesadilla stuffed with chorizo, beans and cheese and an egg with avocado on the top. Deliciousness. And mimosas made of some home made honey syrup. There was so many cool things that it is hard to remember everything 😦 all details. Food, drinks, environment, service, music, comfortable seating... everything was just perfect
This is a beautiful restaurant. The decor is superb and the patio reminds me of a garden. It was too cold outside last night but we cannot wait to return to experience the outdoor dining. I had the lamb kabob and it was cooked to perfection. My wife had the braised short rib and it was fork tender! We had read about the famous Kepta Duona online and we had to try it..... amazing!
The restaurant was not too busy perhaps due to its location behind California pizza kitchen. We have found a hidden gem
Had never heard of this restaurant. Went with a group of friends for holiday celebration after finding it as an option near Kierland Commons area. FANTASTIC! Loved everything about it. Staff was attentive, fun, interested in our feedback, as well as made good recommendations and suggestions. Interesting vibe. Decor - hip, inviting, modern, eclectic. Made me want to look around and take it all in. Patio looked fabulous from inside. Loved the Cosmopolitan. Perfect. The beet salad was so fantastic. Friend had lamb kabobs - exceptional. (Sizeable plate/portion) Ribeye - perfection. I had stuffed cabbage. While excellent, there wasn't much on my plate. I was full due to appetizers and 1/2 the beet salad so wasn't an issue but if I had only ordered dinner, might have been an issue. Don't remember cost. Friend said the "Cesar" salad...wasn't. Nothing like a Cesar which we told staff. They were open to the feedback mentioning it was a new menu and they wanted to know what guests thought.
Deserts were superb. I would have never ordered the peanut butter mousse but a friend did which we all tasted. I would order. The item stated to be a Beignet...wasn't. Like a little fried dough ball but they were soooo good. (Think they called them Spurgos - award winning at Scottsdale Culinary Festival) Look forward to going back. Staff - Nico Floor Manager, waiters Brandon and Dominic. We even got to meet Chef as he came out to greet us. Would have liked to talk with him longer. It was a great evening. Only one kind of negative - the staff members who picked up plates weren't dressed or groomed appropriately in my opinion. One of them reached across the table to pick up a plate and essentially stuck his dirty arm pit in a friend's face. Ugh. Just looked out of place for this quality of a restaurant.
I live next door to Sonata's restaurant and visit pretty often with my boyfriend or/and my friends. I miss food from my home country and always enjoy ordering familiar stuff like Lithuanian beer, red beet soup, stuffed cabbage, potato pancakes, Chicken Kiev, kepta duona(rye bread) and spurgos(donut holes). My boyfriend loves their fish entrees and stakes.
Cozy place for networking events on the patio and holiday celebrations too.
I am one of the people who has loved Sonata's from the beginning. They now have a new chef. Maybe the new menu will have a broader appeal. The ambiance and service here are top notch. The "Kepta Duona" starter was brilliant -- even if the garlic was wicked heavy. All of our dinners were good. The Chicken Kiev is so yummy. I will say it was an absolute mistake to change the pierogi recipe from what it used to be (with the mushrooms). The new recipe is dry and does not have a fraction of the taste. Oh, and one little thing -- don't put the delicious mash under the stuffed cabbage leaves; the mash's flavor is lost with the sauces. I still recommend the restaurant highly and hope they add several pierogi options to the menu (including the old one).
I booked a reservation for indoor seating as I knew the weather was cooling down. When we arrived we were told there was only outdoor available because of a private party. We sat outside and had a patio heater right next to our table which made everyone warm enough. Then it ran out of gas. No replacement tanks on site someone had to go to a local store for one. MGMT offered to move us inside and said we should not have been told there were no inside tables. We moved to a table with a broken foot that pitched like the Titanic. A server built up a pile of napkins under the foot that stabilized it. We were right next to a storage area and everyone entering it had to turn on the ceiling lighting. This didn't add to the experience.
When we got to the food it was all terrific. Scallops, kabab, short ribs were all delicious. Several managers did stop by to apologize and offer dessert. We did receive plenty of attention by the end of the meal. This hopefully was just an off night. We've been here several times before with good experiences. We will give them another try soon.
I have been there several times. The food is a bit pricey but always excellent no matter who the chef is. My only complaint is they book large parties which can be noisy. I would suggest when one makes a reservation that we are told,so we can change plans if it does not suit us
I read the reviews on this place and decided to take clients for dinner. I made reservations and was met by a gentleman in a sport coat. It was a good start, music was a little load and felt a little too much like a night club. We had reservations at 6:30. Thankfully, they turned the music a bit. The waiter came by after a long while and finally took our drink order. Approximately 15 min went by before he brought our glasses of wine, way too long. There were only 5 tables full, not a busy night. The food finally came and my client barley ate her chicken kabob as it was way undercooked and my pork kabob was over cooked and chewy. We still ordered dessert, which was not good and we didn't finish. Our waiter had no idea about the menu, didn't know how to pour the wine so someone else did it, and when giving us silverware for our meals put them in front of us upside down. It was as if he had never been a waiter before. Our meal came to just under $300 for three of us. For that price, this place was a huge disappointment. I would not recommend Sonata's and I will never go back.
