    To start the review off I want to say the valets were extraordinary, and the fact they had complimentary valet on such a busy Street and time made it easy getting into the place. The waiter seemed a little bothered that I asked for a drink menu which didn't give me the best confidence . I ordered the Elden fashioned which was a really tasty drink by adding elderflower to a normal old fashioned. The lady got wine so no issues there. The crab cakes we got were pretty good, not the best we've had but held their own. Fast forward to the main dinner. We both ordered medium rare steaks. The lady ordered the ribeye and I ordered the bone-in cowboy ribeye. I cut into the cowboy ribeye and it had the right temperature but there was no crust at all on the stake. The regular ribeye was cut into and it was well done with no pink in it but it had a tasty crust. If they could have provided the temperature of the cowboy steak with the crust of the ribeye steak it would have been top tier. Our waiter seemed bothered again when asking for a remake. He says they can but he's going to put us behind every other ticket making it an additional 30 minutes. We were put off by this and just accepted the steak as is. I gave the lady my cowboy and took her ribeye. The mashed potatoes did not have flavor and we ended up having to add salt to make it edible. The green bean flavor was good but they were definitely undercooked. Fast forward to the check I asked the waiter why there was a large party of 20% on the check when there was just two of us and he stated this was charge to everyone on Valentine's Day and they should have told me that when I called. I advised I did the reservation online and they called me and just took a card down in the event that I'm not able to cancel in time. He wanted to argue about it and I was just simply asking a question as why it didn't have the right code on the ticket.(Seemed shady). Also the piano was a little too loud but I enjoyed the songs played.

    It just didn’t live up to the hype. We went for our 10th anniversary and we were prepared for the price. The steaks were very thick but my husband’s 10oz filet, that he ordered medium, came out medium well and my 6oz filet, also ordered medium, came out barely above rare. The sides were really not good. My husband didn’t even eat his. We had made early reservations more than a week in advance and were the second people at the door, yet we got sat in a corner near the storage. The waitress was nice enough and helpful but didn’t really do anything to earn extra praise. We still tipped her over 20%. We had a decent time and the flavor of the steak was on point. But it was kind of disappointing overall.

    We go once a year to celebrate our anniversary. This is the first time we have been disappointed. The green beans were cold, the brussel sprouts were too hard, my husband had to send his steak back, so we were unable to eat at the same time. Our server was wonderful, it was just not the best experience food wise, which is painful to say and really hard to believe. Never had a single complaint until this trip, and we have been coming for 12 years. When you pay over $200 for a meal, you expect more than we got this trip.

    We loved every bit of time we spent there. We were early for our reservations so we sat at bar. Harry was very friendly. The host came over several times to update us on our table and once ready he promptly came and got us seated. Our waiter was Nick. He was super friendly and very helpful on our questions we had about the menu. He was very detailed when packing up our remaining food we were taking home. Food was top notch.

    Food was fair, at best. French onion soup and wedge salad was tasty, however the filet was burnt on the outside and I didn’t care for the seasonings used. The mushrooms had zero flavor and the brussel sprouts were hard as rocks. But, the scallops were delicious and definitely the best part of the meal. The atmosphere is amazing as well as the service.

    We have dined at Sonny Williams many times and it is our go-to place for Family Special Occasions. This trip the food was awesome as always, the service was exceptional. My only issue was that when I made the reservation, I mentioned it was our 40th Anniversary and to please give us a good table. The Host wished us Happy Anniversary, then promptly seated us directly by the kitchen doors. Too much hustle and bustle and noise for our special occasion. We did enjoy the piano player though.

    It really was lovely. BUT, the steak was not the glorious piece of Heaven I was told would be awaiting me. Service was splendid. Martha was at the top of her game. The steak drenched in worchestire was not to my liking. Next time (and yes, there will be a next time) I’ll have them cook the steak my Way and not the Sonny way.

    Fabulous food….excellent service….wonderful live piano but desperately in need of a renovation. Investing in the interior would sooth the disconnect. Reinvesting some of the profit of this clearly successful restaurant would bring me back….otherwise I may choose the fancy luxurious decor over Sonny provided the food and Service are equal.

    Food was not great. 2 of us had the lamb chops and they were dry and tuff. The mushrooms were under cooked. For the price I was extremely disappointed. The calimarri was good along with the Mac and cheese.

    This was my second time eating at Sonny Williams'. Both times have been absolutely marvelous. I took my girlfriend there for her 18th birthday and everything went perfectly. The owner ensured that our table was reserved due to complications, her desert was perfectly specialized, and the food was amazing. I would recommend Sonny Williams' to anyone and everyone.

    We were celebrating our 32nd anniversary and had been seated right by the front door, not really the ambiance we were looking for. We asked to be moved to a different table and at first we were met with slight resistance but eventually the staff were accommodating. I understand that moving costumers can present problems with some of the staff and new reservations but when we were greeted with a “happy anniversary” we thought maybe a more intimate seating would have been considered. However, the staff did find us a table in a more appropriate location. We appreciated their effort and thanked them for their trouble The food was delicious and our server (Chloe) was wonderful! Sonny Williams is a classy place and we will definitely be back.

    Expected better food, but not bad at all. Lambchops were more medium than medium well. Requested them to be cooked longer and was brought well done.
