Sanctuary T Ratings and Reviews
Sanctuary T always feels like a good spot to dine in Soho for a casual meal, but always falls below expectation. The service is terribly slow, even on a quiet weekday afternoon, and both the food and drinks were just plain not good. I wouldn't recommend Sanctuary T for anything other than a cup of tea.
Nice staff and good food BUT they sat us at a table near the door. Every time someone came in or out, it was freezing. They apologized and literally brought us mugs of hot water to warm our hands. Another patron nearby angrily kept getting up to close the door. They need to fix this, otherwise, stay away.
The waitress was so nice with us she was the real added value for the restaurant. Meal was good but had to wait a while to get it after the order (keep in mind that chicken and duck require 20/25 mins, I didn't take it but I could give that even a normal burger took that long).
Parmesan fries with the truffled mayo are wow!
The place was plain, the Music was loud and obnoxious. The menu bore no relationship to the menu on their website, which was the reason I chose this restaurant out of the thousands in the city. The food was pretentious; we ordered 5 different things, and there's not one I would want to have again. I ordered a house cocktail, which was also pretty bad. My husband ordered martimis, and even these were mediocre.
Food was delicious, drinks were equally fantastic. Our waitress was lovely, the bartender was friendly, and while we arrived pretty early, the place packed out quickly! My daughter said it was the best burger she's ever had...the macaroni and cheese was decadent, and my roasted chicken was perfect :) We would ABSOLUTELY eat here again :)
We have been to Sanctuary T quite a few times. The food, the staff, the drinks... always amazing The dishes are healthy, creative and so delicious. The cocktails are very unique and tasty. The staff is always so friendly and generous. I can't wait to go back. Thank you!
We visited here with a Groupon on Saturday night and we were beyond impressed with the food and the service. Amazing Brussel Sprouts and two words: Crab Pasta. I didnt love my drink but our waitress, Kourtney was out of this world, she was super friendly, helpful and made our experience extra enjoyable. I couldn't believe this place was on Groupon but I'm glad it was because next time I am going back for the shrimp and the mac and cheese!
My wife and I are regulars at Sanctuary T which is in our neighborhood. I went there with my wife for Valentines Day. I had booked the reservation through OpenTable who did not give any indication that the restaurant was offering a Valentines Day menu only, which I discoveredonly when I got there for my reservation. I wasn't thrilled because typically I see those "deals" as a ripoff. But I was in a good mood, so I rolled with it. The menu was $52 pp, four courses. I was not disappointed. Every dish was delicious and the portions all the way through dessert were generous, especially for a price fix. The service was very polite and helpful, once you could get their attention. But they seemed short-staffed, or just too busy, and it protracted the length of the meal. We were fading so we ordered dessert to go and they were gracious and accommodating. Minor flaws can be overlooked by the cozy ambience and delicious food. Recommend.
This was such a pleasant surprise. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but the inside is charming and the food and drinks were amazing! I went with my boyfriend for a special night out and we were impressed with the drinks, entrees, ambiance, and service. I'd highly recommend the salmon and the fish tacos. I really don't think you can go wrong with the drinks.
