Sanctuaria Ratings and Reviews
The food was wonderful had 4 different tapas plus the stuffed. Mushrooms and quesadilla. The mushrooms where stuffed with venison and an herb stuffing like mixture. The quesadilla was stuffed with goat cheese and duck the goat cheese was a little string or too much of it took away the flavor of of the duck confit. All 4 of the tapas where wonderful., don’t remember there names..
Serious fans of tapas, we found the food to be not only overpriced but not that great. We frequent Barcelona in Clayton quite a bit and perhaps sanctuaria needs to take a look at their menu. We also did not like that all of our food arrived at the same time. So, it got cold by the time we were not even halfway through our meal. We like the ambience, but it was very noisy.
When we arrived on Friday night, the place was pretty empty but it didn't take long to fill up. Soon lively conversation filled the air, fueled in part by great cocktails. Everything we ordered was tasty (stuffed peppers, chips, shrimp, fajitas), and the selection of wines by the glass was great.
Fantastic service!! Originally had reservation for 10 people and our group grew. I Called a few days before to inform them of the increased size of the group and they accommodated us without an issue. The day before they even called to confirm the size of the party and to Inquire if we would need more seating. The food and drinks were amazing and our server Ben was great and very attentive! Overall we had a great experience and would recommend to anyone!
First off Sanctuaria is the name after lunch.... Thus it is Diablo during lunch hours and they close at 3:00,and reopen to Sanctuaria... This isnt mentioned in OpenTable... It was very cold inside...making for it to be a good first time experience... My tacos were not hot, for the amount of time it took to come from the kitchen (I selected 3- Baja Fish, and the 2 variations of chicken-of the 3 the fish was the best, and it was just ok). The extra for the “Salsa and chips” may have been the best and worth it, with the exception of closing it down prior to us leaving... I asked for a “Golden Margarita with Anejo Tequila with “Little” rocks, no salt” and received a glass full of ice! The restaurant was not crowded.... one other couple at the time... Needless to say... Diablo will not be a return visit for me.... let’s hope that “Sanctuaria” can do better...
Sanctuaria was good, but it has a little identity crisis. Is it a tapas place, fine dining, or Mexican. I was told that the owners closed their other restaurants and combined the best of both menus, but I found that odd.
The service was decent, but they forgot a drink that I ordered during our meal.
But one really negative aspect was that we seemed to have fruit flies at our table - not an infestation, but just a few that were annoying. They need to get rid of that problem.
I’d give the place a C+ or at best a B- on this visit.
Overpriced food and drinks, drinks were ridiculously overpriced, they were small and overfilled with ice and then charge $20 for one drink. Service, if that is what you call it was poor. And it wasn't even busy, now we know why. Very dissatisfied, went in optimistic and came out regretful. Won't ever be going back and will not recommend.
