We went to Sauce for the first time a few weeks ago and were not impressed. The front bar area looked nice, but we were seated in the back room, which took away my appetite. There was something disgusting smeared around the thermostat, food splashes on the walls, bullets missing from the booth cushions which snag on your clothes, dirty floor, and a general look like it's not cared for (tape and holes in the walls hap-hazardly here and there).
Our waitress was very nice. No complaints at all about the service. That was the one highlight of the visit.
Too bad the food was not appealing. I ordered a salad and mac 'n' cheese skillet. The salad came in a fried tortilla bowl and had some iceberg letuce and cucumber scraped free of seeds so it was basically the skin left behind (yuck). There was nothing refreshing about the salad, which was a shame. The salad dressing was given in a plasic cup with the lid still on it with writing scrawled on it as to what it was, which just added to the 'we don't care' look about the place. You'd think when you are paying that kind of money for a meal, you'd get at least average quality. The mac 'n' cheese skillet was huge.... no one should eat that much.... not that I am complaining, but it was just a big pile of goopy fat. Did not go for the leftovers of this dish. Fat with no flavor. I thought the choice of tomatoes and gorgonzola would be tasty, but they just add the gorgonzola to the soupy orange cheese base, losing the flavor of the gorgonzola completely. It was a waste of good cheese in a pile of yuck. I could feel my arteries congealing.
Also heard loud fighting from the kitchen. and I mean LOUD. It was awkward and uncomfortable to witness.
Sorry to say that we have zero interest in returning. Ever.
