“Walked out...Service is a problem and the menu has degraded.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

I have reviewed this restaurant & recommended it previously; however, my last two visits have been disappointing. The food was o.k. but uninteresting on my previous visit. My most recent attempt to visit resulting in one of 3 times in my life I have walked out of restuarant after being seated to dine. 30 minutes after being seated for lunch, we sat with our menus and a glass of water. No drink order had been taken, and no server had acknowledged us. As this did not bode well for a business lunch even on a lunch hour plus, after looking at the updated menu and assessing the service, we left. It did not appear there were many items left worth waiting for...
Jeremy is a good chef, but needs to travel and get some experience at other high end restaurants to appreciate and learn about front of the house service and expand his food repetoire. This can be a great place again, but it has definately slipped.

“Fabulously gourmet at unbelievable prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013 via mobile

The Quiche slice was huge and to die for, yet just $6 and comes with a side salad! Service was a touch on the slow side, but in line with what I expect from a French-cuisine establishment. The unique cured meats were also flavorful, decadent and very unique. Love my lunch experience here and would come back in a heartbeat.

“One of our favorites in Spokane”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

We always stop here when we visit Spokane. We enjoy the creativity of the menu. Much like a restaurant you'd find in a bigger city.

Service is a tad slow... but good and friendly. And next to a really cool game shop and book store.

Well worth the visit.

“unique in it's selections”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

I ate at the Sante for the second time today and again thoroughly enjoyed it. It's an upscale restaurant with a very relaxed atmosphere including the help no pressure and taking as much time as you need to answer all your questions.
The menu changes all the time according to what fresh food is available. They try and use all organic and as much local as they can find.
For people that don't just want the same old standard fare and like a bit of gourmet food give them a try. The food is well presented and you can tell they take pride in it. The restaurant is not in a new setting with all the latest stuff surrounding you and that's why to me it makes it such a comfortable place to be. You can go in a suit or jeans and feel good.

“Very Good but slightly overpriced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

The food here is phenomenal. Fresh and inspired french cuisine. However, the dinner it is slightly over priced for what one receives. The lunch menu is for sure a better value. Enjoy!
