I don't understand Sante. We have been going there for close to 4 years. We have had great food, OK food, mediocre food. We have had great service, OK service and poor service. We boycotted them for at least a year and went back a few months ago and were pleased. Tonight we had pretty good food and poor service.... More

My boyfriend and I ate here last weekend during a shopping trip to Spokane to celebrate our 4 year anniversary. I had called the week before to make a dinner reservation and the guy I spoke with was funny and friendly. He even asked if it was a special occasion, which was nice. We arrived a little early for our... More

My husband and I have been to Sante several times. Every experience has been great! It speaks for itself that Sante was invited to the James Beard House. My husband donated on kickstarter to make it happen. Yes, Sante will cost you more than the average Spokanite fare. However, what you get in return is a fantastic farm to table... More

We would have eaten here had we had the opportunity. We arrived fom Idaho at 1:53 on a Sunday afternoon after finding the restaurant on Yelp, party of four still dressed from a wedding. Yelp said lunch was served until 2:00. The hostess/server did not smile, did not offer an "I'm sorry, but.." or "our chef cannot prepare hot meals... More

Hello Bonnie, I am very sorry to hear about your experience while traveling and celebrating a wedding last weekend. The situation you experienced is extremely rare for our small business on several levels. First of all, we are usually open until at least 4pm on Sundays, that particular weekend more than half of our team was cooking a dinner at... More

Great, attentive service from a staff that knows what they are doing and more importantly wants to be there! Food was close to out of this world, everything was prepared and presented in an elegant fashion with tons of flavor and texture. I made sure to hit up the counter and grab some Salami and mustard to go! If you... More

We ate at Sante about this time last year and really liked it. In fact, we booked ahead for this trip when we were in Coeur D'alene so we wouldn't miss out. We had the Charcuterie board last year and it was great ... this time the meats tasted old, bordering on rancid ... not nearly as good. We ordered... More

I have had lunch many times at Sante since it opens in 2008, with co-workers, friends, and family. Always impressed with the food quality and services. I was told that almost all ingredients they serve besides vegetables are made in-house, which shows in the taste from the menu items. My favorites are grilled cheese and shirred eggs. Tofu and vegetable... More

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.

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,...

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... More
