    Mixed experience in a lot of ways, but Matthew was the best part of the experience. Probably one of the best servers I’ve come across in Bakersfield. Friendly, attentive, and honest. The honest part was especially important to me. Food was great, though there was an issue with my food and it took forever to get to me. Though the short ribs were worth the wait. Everyone loved their food. Oh and get the Brussel sprouts. So good! My cheesecake was great, but they had an issue with the crème brûlée and no one could eat it. They took care of the food issues, above and beyond my expectations. We will definitely be back.

    Service was horrible, this place has gone down hill. Took forever for our server to do anything for us and when the kids chicken strips got to the table they were soggy and greasy, very disappointed in this place, it used to be so put together and nice and great food but this last visit there will be our last unfortunately.

    First we were sat in a booth with the sun beating in half the tables eyes…Inside might I add. The food took an hour to arrive from the time we ordered, we were basically ready to leave. One person ordered a “filet mignon” that I will bet any amount of money was not actually a filet, it was also burnt and covered in an overly-salted gravy. The rest of the orders were also covered in salt and was some of the worst food I’ve had at a restaurant…no exaggeration. The last nail in the coffin was the waiter mixing up our credit card with another table. I don’t think I’ve ever had a good experience at Sonder, but I keep making excuses… support local establishments, it’s new give them a break, it’s Covid cut them some slack. I’m done. This restaurant is garbage, period

    Sonder provided a great experience for my business meeting. Although I did have to move the conversation outside due to the live performers, it wasn't that big a deal and the meeting progressed exceptionally well.

    We made reservations for 6PM. Took about 45 minutes to get drinks and one appetizer. Dinner took over 1.5 hours to arrive. Two of our orders were inedible and had to be refunded. Will not return.

    They canceled my reservation on me less then 12 hours from when I was going to have a meal there saying they were closing for the day. Also I made a reservation over a week in advance. so keep that in mind they aren’t reliable.

    We were surprised by the live music, which was great, but was far too loud. We had to yell at each other at our table to hear each other. The appetizer plates brought to us were dirty and had remnants of food on them. So did the replacement plates they brought to us. We waited almost a half hour for a server to come to our table to greet us and bring waters. The food was pretty good. Maybe we caught Sonder on a bad night 🤷🏻‍♀️

    I’ve been to Sonder 3 times now, and each time is better than the last. Their Food is amazing, I get something different every time because i know whatever I get will taste great. Drinks are wonderful as well, I recommend the lavender lemon drop! Staff is friendly and attentive and overall a nice vibe and fun environment!

    The photos really were better than the actual experience. The charcuterie board was unbalanced with way too much fruit and boring meat and cheese choices. That combined with higher prices made it less than a great experience. I will say that their Bloody Mary was tasty and probably the best pet of our lunch.

    The food and service were great, but why they felt the need to seat us (4) next to a very large group of party goers celebrating a 30th birthday is beyond me. The patio is long and narrow...poor planning on someone's part. The birthday party wasn't obnoxious at all, but a big group, so of course they're going to be loud just by the fact there were a lot of them, and they were all standing around visiting, not seated at the tables... But, again, food and service was top notch, and hopefully, next time it'll be a better arrangement.
