We chose Sonny's because it was close to Merrill Auditorium. The noise level is high and if we had known about the back area, away from the bar, we would have asked for it. The food was good, plentiful and quickly served. The waitress needed a bit more training - she spilled some water while putting a shim under the table and basically threw an extra napkin on the table for us to clean it up. Later in the meal, while pouring more water, the glass slipped out of her hand and fell into my husband's lap. A complimentary dessert would have been a nice apology. We always leave a 20% tip, but not this time.
I loved Sonny’s. I was disappointed the menu had been overhauled and is now Mexican. I’m sad to hear they are closing.
Limited menu--small drinks--poorly described food--waitress did not really describe the spice level--overall a poor experience
Dinner was awful. Appetizer and one entree inedible. Over priced. Drink mediocre. Service unbelievably awful. Took 5 mins for someone to acknowledge that we had walked in, waitress seemed inconvenienced by us, never smiled. We won't be back.
Sonny's exceeded our expectations ! Our waitress - wish I knew her name - was patient and friendly. Portion size was more than expected. Food was delicious !
The Corn Salad was exceptional as were the Chorizo Tacos. Everything was very fresh and packed with flavor.
I have been to Sonny's before and was pleased previously. But they eem to be trying to squeeze as much cash out of patrons as possible. The food and drink is very expensive for the serving size and my enchiladas were cold. A house margarita is $10 and was served in a rocks glass (and tasted watered down so I couldn't explain away the price as high quality ingredients). Because I was still hungry after my meal, we ordered dessert. Whereas the desserts at most places are shareable, both options were so small they seemed to be made in an easy bake oven. I don't think I'll be back after this experience.
Food and service were good. Filled up on the queso fondito. I will go back.
Food was good, not great, but the service was brutal and you can't hear yourself think in the backroom. Not sure that we'll be back with all the choices in Portland.
Asked for window seat , Got it. Waitress ,sorry forgot her name, she was awesome. Good accommodating attitudes really help make the evening. I believe this was our 5th time to Sonny's. My lovely bride always remarks Sonny's again, upon leaving she remarks again, that was awesome. Don't change a thing. Thank you Ben Susla Freeport
