We were seated near a window with a view of the water. We both opted for pasta dishes of Alfredo with chicken and the pasta with meat sauce. Both were very good and nice size portions. Overall a very good dinner.,

Polite staff, seated right away. Excellent food. Great selection. The menu was a bit confusing, but the wine selection was very nice.

I go out of my way to have a meal at Sante. It is a nice mix of French/Belgian and American. The duck broth french onion soup is fantastic. Also, a nice selection of wines and beers. A nice view at sunset as well!

Food, service, location, ambience, always TOP FLIGHT ! Music Entertainment, 99% of the time, way TOO LOUD ! Finally, this year, entertainment only on weekends, leaving Sun, Mon, Tue, and Wed for quiet, ENJOYABLE dining. This year "my other wife" ... the one who loves me unconditionally, our little Shi-Poo, joined us on the outdoor covered porch and enjoyed under-the-table... More

We ate here after going zip lining nearby. I had a pizza with blueberries salad, grated cheese and pork. Sounds wierd right? I was delicious. Service was great and the atmosphere of the place was great.

Great food and safe meal for my daughter with severe food allergies(pn/tn/sesame). Loved that the buzzer to call you for your table works a couple blocks away and allows you to walk around. Server was a bit overwhelmed with the busyness but the food and drinks were awesome!

Thank Joann B
