I asked our waiter where their steaks were from, if they were grass fed, corn fed or grain fed. He had no idea.
They stuck us in a side room which was fine, until they sat a large group of loud, boisterous men in the same room. We were not the only dining party annoyed. Our waiter was oblivious, in fact in joined into their loud banter. The only saving grace was the quality of their steaks. Also he failed to notify us of the up charge for Asparagus a couple of us ordered with our meal.

Reservation stated this was a 60th bday special occasion but no acknowledgement by the restaurant - not even a birthday wish - at all! Not sure why info was solicited if it was not going to be used. An opportunity was missed to wow us; were very disappointed instead.

The filet mignon was prepared to perfection and one of the best I have ever had. The service was excellent too. We were on a time schedule since we had plans afterwards, and our waitress was very helpful with that.

Food, music and wait staff were very good. However, we had to wait 45 minutes for our food and Price’s are too high. We were informed there was a large wedding party. They should have been prepared for that and Friday evening business. If they had been busy it would have been more understandable. However, there were limited tables besides us and the wedding party.

We had a very early reservation, and were the only people in the restaurant until close to 6. Disappointed in the steaks for a steak house, but the sides and salads were excellent. Nice cocktail list. Wine is expensive. The server acted like he'd rather be doing anything else and was annoyed to be waiting on our table. Unfortunately, would not come back if we visited LR again.

An outstanding steak, which is what we (my date and I) went for! The waitress was very helpful in pairing a wine, and the manager even came over to help us make our steak selection! The piano player came over to ask if we had requests, and we had a very nice, quiet, delicious dinner. Everything was perfect!

Sonny's is a consistent high performer in our market and I'll be back, but my last visit was not up to the high standards I expect of it. Our waiter was congenial and I believe he was trying, but was well below expectations. He didn't appear to have the proper training and/or experience and didn't have any apparent supervision or help. The steak was outstanding as always, but the asparagus served with it was so small and of such low quality that the kitchen should have just said they were out. Everyone has a bad night, so I'll come back for sure.

I went to sonny Williams for prom. When I arrived the place looked very nice and we were automatically greeted by the nice hostess. She took us to our seat and told my date that she looked beautiful. Very nice of her! The music and atmosphere was exquisite as well as the food. My only complaint was I asked for a 10 oz sirloin and received a 6 oz. The waitress was very nice and apologized for her mistake and only charged me for the 6 oz.

There were 4 of us arriving 15 mins apart so Zoe was very accommodating. Drinks were excellent. We shared calamari, with each ordering different salads. All 4 of us are steak eaters- filet and porterhouse were perfect which comes with green beans and a potato choice plus extra sides to order. Each of us had different deserts. Staff was great, piano player was good, played all night. Quite atmosphere with ambiance. We were there from 7:30-10:30. We are all from NYC area and agree it is hard to find a good restaurant down here. Would highly recommend them.

I ordered the New York Strip steak. The 1st bite was the best bite. From them on the flavor lacked . The stark was rough all the way through. Lots of fat and gristle, at least 25 % . Pore cut of meat.

We shared the porterhouse for two, perfectly cooked and seasoned. Our sides were good and portion appropriate. The pomegranate martini was amazing. We were way too full for desert, but there was a good selection. Last, but not least, our waiter, Shaun, was fantastic. He was super attentive without hovering and crazy personable. Overall, our meals were excellent and we will most certainly be back.

Because of an accident on the highway, we arrived at the restaurant a bit cramped for time. Our waiter completely understood and got us drinks and our meals in a timely fashion.

We made it to our engagement on time and our evening at Sonny Williams could only have been better had we had more time.

Service was great. What was disappointing was the sauce/marinade all over the steak. There was a big pool of it that the steak was sitting in. It was like a thinner version of steak sauce. Completely overpowered the flavor.

We have eaten at Sonny Williams' many times, but the quality has been gradually declining over the last couple of years. This most recent visit was the worst yet. I ordered the special, Alaskan halibut, but with the sauce on the side. Apparently the sauce was the only thing intended to carry the dish because without it the fish was like shoe leather, flavorless and rubbery. The green beans were over - salted and an odd mixture of limp and crunchy, as if 2 batches were mixed together. Granted, the manager didn't charge me for my food, but the meal was still over $100 per person. Additionally, my son - in - law's steak was undercooked, the salads were drowned in dressing, and the special dessert tasted like a frozen and reheated Sara Lee cake. We won't be going back for quite some time.
