“Local Fresh Menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Nice small restaurant that focuses on fresh local foods and meats. I had a very good spinach salad and a duck entrée. Was with a group of 8 and all had something different on the menu and all were very satisfied.

“Good - But Trying A Little Too Hard”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

Sante was a good choice, the dried meats and cheeses were very good. The service was impeccable. The chilled melon soup was acceptable but unremarkable. But, something was a little off - it seemed like a restaurant struggling to find its identity. It struck all of us as if the restaurant was taking the organic/farm fresh movement to the extreme, almost like a scene from a movie. We enjoyed our experience, but diners should be prepared for a restaurant that tries so hard to be unique that it comes across as awkward.

“Special place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

I wanted to try Sante thanks to other Tripadvisor reviews. And a friend who was part of our group is a chef who enjoys charcuterie. I can barely say it! I had the house-made ravioli (can be made either veggie or with meat). It was excellent. Others said their spinach salads, with locally made goat cheese, was superb, along with the smoked duck. And the chocolate dessert was a chocolate lovers dream--yes, my dream! Definitely lots of locally sourced food, with many specialties, such as the smoked and preserved meats, made in-house. Service varies, at times attentive, at others rather laid back. So I missed going to the independently-owned bookstore and crafts co-op that night. Though do go to them, too! Although any attire will fine here, and casual is fine, the prices are a bit higher than the usual two $$.

“Sante Restaurant & Charcuterie - Merci No!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

While it seems the restaurant would be nice with white table cloths and a case full of dried meat and related product, and with a laptop bar adjacent to the adjacent book store, all seemed well. I ordered the coffee...among the worst I have had. The coffee was dark roast, and the only one they had. It was exceptionally sharp acidic and burnt tasting. Not one to complain, I went to the bookstore asking if they served coffee. They said no, but the restaurant could help you. I said, no, the coffee is horrible. A customer told me to go to Atticus, a block away. I returned to the restaurant cashier on my way out and asked for an ice tea instead, telling her the coffee was not acceptable. She gave me an ice tea, a heavily minted tea. I threw that in the trash also, on my way to Atticus. The food might be great, but the coffee and tea were not. I did go to Atticus...it was great!
