Office Christmas Dinner

Very quiet establishment (getting harder and harder to escape the neon and walls of tv's). Location offers a nice stroll on the river and a relaxed evening. The food is pricey. Check the menu out online. The steaks are above average... well, well above the other establishments. My last experience saw my steak cooked more than my preference but I... More

I make sure I go this restaurant every time I'm in Little Rock. They have seasonal specials, and the steak and seafood are always excellent. Go see Bubba at the piano bar. I prefer to eat at a table at the piano bar because he gives such great service. They really take the time to prepare the meals. You realy... More

It has been a long time since Ive eaten at Sonny's. Ive always heard its the best in Little Rock for steaks. Recently took an out of town business contact their and was VERY DISAPPOINTED! The Ribeye not only was overcooked, it had way too much gristle and fat. A $50 steak should be a good one - this was... More

staff seems to think the host station is a social hub for employees. The food was way under seasoned . It was if the chef forgot how to use salt and pepper. The steaks were perfectly cooked but bland. The vegi was green beans with red bell pepper and was boiled to death again with no seasoning and the "garlic,"... More

I actually don't like this place, because it's dressier than I want to be and there's always legislators and movers and shakers and snobs there. But their steaks are heavenly. If you're visiting, are downtown, and want a slam-dunk great steakhouse that does not feel like a chain, go here. Locals, buy choice steaks at Fresh Market or Whole Foods... More

Locals speak highly of Sonnys. Unfortunately it's surviving on past performance. Expensive steak should be aged and tender. Both were absent from the NYStrip. Onion Soup had enough salt to mimic the Gulf and the creamed spinach had some foreign white substance mixed throughout the cold green leaves. The adult beverages were good and our waiter was a pro. But... More

I ordered the blackened New York strip steak medium rare. When the steak came, it wasn't blackened. When I pointed this out to the waitress ...she seemed annoyed ...as if I had just made this up. She left in a huff and came back with a slightly charcoal steak that was now well done. The steak was so charred now... More

Great restaurant for steaks. Lots of other choices, all excellent. Initially place in a noisy, crowded room. Asked if we could be moved and were wisked off to a quiet, romantic porch room which overlooked the street. Guess we initially looked like partiers! Overall excellent restaurant
