    The food is decent! It gives out of town while in town. I’m sure that’s what they were going for. lol expensive for a Flint food spot though…but whatever.

    From the pictures on their website, I was expecting a very fine dining experience, however, it wasn't what I'm used to. I was dressed for the occasion (nothing special,just dinner with my wife) with suit and tie, and noticed right away most patrons were dressed in shorts and t-shirts. I ordered a bottle of wine, it was set on the table in the chiller, definitely not presented correctly, and no tasting for approval,but the wine was excellent. The food was pretty good, although they were no longer selling the menu item I originally wanted to order. The dessert (tiramisu) was excellent. Overall, food and drink were very good. The servers have not been instructed in fine dining service, (I would blame this on management, not the servers). I guess that's just "Flint fine dining" and, unfortunately, not up to my standards. The price was not bad, but I would rather pay more for a better dining experience.

    Excellent table service by the bartender, no less. Not sure if that was due to the light crowd or if staffing was an issue. Regardless, all patrons seemed well attended to from our view point. Food was excellent. Tried the Caprese, Tomato bisque soup and the lasagna. All were very good. Choice of 16 or 22oz drafts - nice touch for the beer drinkers among us. The Chianti went well with the meal. A bit pricey but we expected that going in.

    I must say, I have not been back to "Sauce" since we had our wedding there in October of 2021, but the food, service and warm feeling of the Italian family bleed through on this Mothers Day. Thank you for always making it a great experience and remembering the little things. Brian Frankovich

    Easter brunch- Bloody Mary was delicious and well worth the $. Service was slow- we waited several minutes for box then was brought a dirty one. We waited several more minutes for the waiter to pick up our payment. Food was ok.

    Our table was ready for us. Our server was pleasant and attentive. The food was delicious. We did have a few things that weren't so great. We ordered an appetizer, 2 side salads and 2 dinners. Shortly after our appetizer was served, our dinners came. We did not get our salads, which we canceled when our meal arrived. The food was delicious but could have been a little warmer. We will eat there again.

    Bloody Mary came out after our food which was disappointing since there were only 3 other tables in the entire restaurant. Food was only ok. The Hollandaise sauce on the eggs Benny was clumpy and just all butter. For the price it’s not worth it at all.

    My family and I had a great time at Sauce. We sat in the vault which was neat, however the conversation echoed a bit. If you are looking for a romantic dinner I suggest sitting in a booth. That being said, the atmosphere, food and company was to be repeated.

    My wife and I had New Year’s dinner here. I ordered the lasagna, she ordered the salmon. Both were delicious and cooked to perfection. Our server was courteous and very pleasant. The food was served hot and quickly—no lengthy wait. The ambiance of the restored bank lobby was excellent, too. We feel fortunate Flint has this gem that has a “big city” feel.
