My husband & I had dinner there for our anniversary on June 26th. The meals were great, service was good. Our drinks were awesome. But the bad odor in the restaurant was VERY BAD. It smelled like a combo of bad grease & bad mold. We will try this place one more time. If the odor is still there, we... More

We have been here a few times now. The service is always exceptional. Everyone is very friendly, relaxed and attentive. It's cozy in the winter with a fireplace, and very comfortable in the summer with a very nice outdoor patio. The food is great! The pizza some of the best I've ever had. Great wine selection. We will definitely be... More

This is one place that you'll love for it's pizzas. They make really good pizzas that are perfectly sized for a single person. The ambience is very good, and the people there make you feel welcome. Apart from pizzas, they also serve excellent pastas. This was the preferred lunch destination everytime our team went out for lunch (at less than... More

After living in the area for over 3 years & passing by this place often, we finally decided to give it a try thanks to the good reviews we read about it. We got there around 5:30 on Saturday night & we were seated right away. Those who came in after us weren't so lucky. We heard people getting told... More

Sonny's can be a little bit hard to find, but search it out if you love pizza! Nice crispy crust, great sauce, a nice variety of toppings all baked to perfection. What's not too love? This town has lots of pizza joints but we think Sonny's is the best by far. But Sonny's is more than just pizza. It serves... More

I wanted a quiet, intimate restaurant that my date and I could have a nice conversation. Sonny's Bistro was recommended to me by a friend who is a regular there. The service was awesome, the food very good, and the price reasonable. As first time customers, I asked our waitress Seirra, for recommendations. She proved very knowledgeable and helpful. All...

On a recent business trip to Des Moines, a colleague recommended Sonny's. My fellow traveling companion is Italian and is very picky about Italian food, but we decided to give it a shot. Sonny's is a small place, but they have great food and even better service. My friend got Italian sausage (which is homemade) over angel hair pasta and... More
