Takeout, No Mistakes!

Before we knew it, due to the time change, it was late to cook dinner. I Google'd restaurants in Auburn NY and decided to try The Sunset. We ordered for two adults and two children. In general when we order takeout from restaurants there is something missing or not done correctly. Even with some of... read more

We took our family for a special birthday for a family member, had made reservation about a month before hand and when got there had to wait over 40 min to be seated, which was totally unacceptable to me. Food was pretty good, nothing fancy.

I waited forever to get my food which was a chicken Caesar salad and a side of mashed potatoes. I filled up on bread because I was hungry. The plate of salad was enormous and well beyond portion size. The dressing smelled like BO. I almost broke a tooth on the lettuce. The chicken was rubber. The mashed potatoes tasted... More

As previous reviewers have said, entire restaurant needs to be updated. Carpet really needs to be replaced. Dinner was good, but very disappointed to be charged $1.50 for blue cheese on my salad. Personally, I think $1.50 is ridiculous and feel the server should have informed me of the upcharge. Doubtful that I'll be going back in the near future.

Recently returned to Auburn to visit and had to go back to our old haunt, The Sunset, for lunch. The menu has changed over the years, but the food is very plentiful (bring your appetite) and delicious. The French onion soup is great, and all the salads are huge and tasty. On fish Fridays, have the baked scrod - my... More

Tucked away on a less traveled road the cozy, casual, "lets unwind" appeal of the exterior appearance begs you to come in. The spacious parking lot is easy to maneuver even with a large pickup truck. No marked parking spaces so you can leave enough space between your vehicle and another that makes you comfortable. A warm and welcoming entrance... More

I moved to this area 30 years ago. Friends took us to the sunset then, raving about how very good the food was, and the exceptional portion size. 98% of the time you will get a superb, excellent, delicious, and reasonably priced meal. The other 2 % of the time it may only be excellent. During the weekends and dinner... More

I've lived in the Auburn area for many years and only been to the Sunset about four times. We had not been there in about three years and decided to go this past January. The first impression upon entering is that this place is dated and needs a serious overhaul on the interior. Service was average at best, our waitress... More

Very good American and Italian food, excellent specials, fine professional wait staff and bar service. Nice family friendly, old-fashioned restaurant. An excellent value for the money. We've been going there for years, and will continue to do so. One suggestion – please reduce the salt in your standard menu items, or at least offer some heart healthy low-sodium alternatives! The...

We went to the Sunset Restaurant with friends for dinner this past Sunday - they let us know it was one of their favourite spots in Auburn. It was easy to see why - the whole place had a very "you're family here" kind of atmosphere where the staff knew the regulars. I had the spinach salad and french onion... More
