We always enjoy coming here but especially for restaurant week, it's always bustling and we like that we can pick from their complete menu, without being charged a ton of supplements. All our appetizers, entrees and deserts were great. Our server was nice but she...More

The food was delicious as always. The grouper was a fair portion and the lobster sauce had a rich flavour. The shrimp pasta dish was tasty but the presentation in a deep bowl led one to feel as if eating wonton soup from a buffett....More

Recently moved to the area and had dinner at Sante. The price-fixed holiday menu was reasonably priced which also included the " Carolina Voices " choir group. My wife and I had a great time. Will do it again next year....

This is a nice quiet place. It is a perfect place to catch up. The food was good. The portions were adequate. The staff was friendly.

We went to Sante for dessert only. There were four of us and we all got something different so we could try each. All desserts were sooooo good! We also had dessert wine and coffee! Can't wait to go back and try dinner.

Terrible place. Looks cute, but they are utterly clueless on food - mediocre to bad - and service was worst I've ever experienced. Avoid this place (total rip-off)

Service was great - food options were fancy but not too fancy. The cheese plate was decent, wine options were respectable, and the entrees we ordered were great. This place is small but has a cozy feel.

This restaurant has great curb appeal being in a historic property in the center of Matthews, but is a real disappointment. Dishes were bland. Ingredients were not fresh. Sauces for plating seemed store bought. Candidly, this restaurant was the OPPOSITE of the descriptions we've read...More

We don't go here nearly often enough. Adam is a very creative chef and uses locally sourced ingredients. The menu changes based on what is available. It is the feel of a small French restaurant. Reservations are strongly recommended.
