A fantastic meal for two. The food was amazing and the service second to none. The Sommelier helped us through a very good wine list and when that wine couldn't be located immediately gave us 2 free glasses of a great red while we waited, on the house. I will be making a trip back to the restaurant again. It's... More

We dined outside and enjoyed to open air and mild temperatures. The wait staff was outstanding. The recommendations were all on target. I particularly recommend the lobster terrain as an appetizer and the lamb as an entree. A guest next to our table had the kitchen put together a great looking vegetarian meal. A great restaurant for a special occasion.

The food was truly spectacular - the best filet mignon I've ever had, truly! The service was very good as well. Recommend sitting inside for more of an elegant dining experience. Outside seating overlooks the pool, which is nice, but can feel more casual than Sante is known for.

Memorable dinner with wonderful food and wine pairing and excellent service. My only recommendation is when a dish is dropped on the table that the server or server assistant explain what is being served (throughout our prix fixe dinner). Otherwise very nicely done presentation and taste.

Our friends had their wedding rehearsal dinner here. Our group was about 30 people and we had the back room. While the service was a bit slow, it is understandable with a party our size. The food was delicious. We had a prefix menu and we all raved about our dishes. I would go back again and recommend for a... More

We ate here based on recommendations seen on TA and other websites. Thinking we were in for an exceptional meal, we were really disappointed. The service was very attentive and good, but the food was SO disappointing... especially at the price. Even if it were half the menu price we still would have been disappointed. The one redeeming thing was... More

Food and service is excellent. I'm lactose intolerant and the kitchen was able to accommodate that without sacrificing quality. My only quibble is the pricing. It's overpriced but that's not uncommon among hotel restaurants.

Definitely one of the nicest meals I've had in a while. The presentation of the food was beautiful and my main course (fish) was cooked to perfection. As other reviewers have mentioned, the restaurant showcases local produce and the overall quality is excellent. As you might expect, being in a wine producing area, Sante has a great selection of local... More
