Sono Restaurant Portside Wharf
Sushi was amazing quality
We chose Sono for our daughter’s birthday as she is mad about Japanese food and culture having lived there for a year. The food and service were outstanding!! The staff are so thoughtful and gracious and it was every bit the same level of care you get when in Japan. The sake menu is extensive and their knowledge of the different options to match with food was terrific. And we tried 3 great & quite unique cocktails. It was a wonderful dinner
Disappointed by the service with long waits between visits from staff, slow delivery of orders, forgotten parts of the our orders, and very expensive. Certainly a step down from our previous experience. Better value and experience available from other Japanese restaurants in Brisbane.
A great friend of ours is married to a Japanese Lady and she has raved about Sono for a long time. The fact their son is working in the kitchen serving an apprenticeship is to be ignored.
We at last had the opportunity to visit on a trip to Brisbane. What can I say that my ratings don’t. Great food with the expected presentation and a totally committed wait staff. Can not fault the place and this on one of their busiest lunch services. Outstanding.
First dining experience at Sono upon receipt of Gift Vouchers.
A fine experience with interesting food from extensive menu choices.
Quiet ambience and service was excellent. Friendly staff to greet and advise on menu also.
Location has free parking validated at reception.
We will come again.
Thank you for making it special.
Our celebration was wonderful and Sono did everything to make it that way. We will definitely return.
Incredible. Zen menu with paired sake is amazing. 🤤🤤🤤
This is almost certainly the best Japanese in Brisbane, and the quality is very high. Sono do both classic and modern Japanese, so whilst there are many old favorites you can also find innovation.
The cocktail list is impressive as well. They take mixology seriously.
Outstanding food and service, we love Sono!
Lovely atmosphere, fantastic food and very friendly and attentive staff.
Excellent customer service
Quality top food
Value for monies not really as portions are very small
Excellent dink menu
We were in private rooms but could hear very loud noise from next door private rooms
Enjoyed traditional Japanese Zen tasting course. Sitting in a traditional table over looking the Brisbane River. Beautifully presented food that was delicious. Professional and friendly wait staff.
Sono Portside is our "goto" spot for special occasions. The service is always flawless, as is the food. Our latest visit was for my daughter's 8th, and my Mother's 83rd Birthdays. Although we all decided against indulging in dessert, and without a request from us, the staff still provided a little something to both birthday girls to add to their special day... As always, thank you so much.
Extremely fancy restaurant, high end prices but was very yummy food and an overall fantastic experience
Was a really nice/lovely restaurant. Very happy with the food and service. But was also very pricey
Love the food every time we come it is amazing always know we will be happy with service
Great service here, always welcoming and ready to help. Overall the food is very very good
and you can still find some good wines that are not too expensive.
Really enjoyed the food, the view was beautiful, bit slow service to start with but that improved to become very good. Will definetley be going back but the drinks prices was very expensive
The atmosphere was great, drinks were nice and service was good. However, the food was very average.Being a Japanese restaurant, they did not show case their food well. We had a banquet for 4 people. The portions were very small. It was catered that each person could only have one mouthful of food for each dish which is not good. Many other restaurants we have been to have decent or generous size portions especially when we order banquets for 4 or more people.
Wow. Fantastic for special occasion since higher cost then we normally pay but it is a whole new level of dining. We had the degustation and it was amazing. Gorgeous interior and staff excellent. Memorable moment.
Had a private tatami room. Matching wines with set menu. Service was EXCELLENT
The service was exceptional, each plate on the zen tasting menu was flawless in flavour and carefully crafted to highlight the best qualities of each ingredient. The sake pairing is highly recommended, it is the first time the descriptions presented by staff have been spot on, intricate & delicious.
Always love going there.
Dined here as a special occasion for my partners 50th.
Had heard the food was exceptional and Sono definitely lived up to that expectation.
We overordered as it was so hard to choose from the amazing menu so our bill was a little high but that was more our fault (greedy guts ha ha).
Staff were attentive but not pushy or in your face.
Each meal came out impeccably presented, with bigger than expected portion sizes, and so fresh and delicious.
Will definitely be reccommending Sono to others!
Beautiful food, unique experience, great service- just classier and pricier than I was expecting!
The food presentation was beautiful, food top-notch, service was perfect and staff catered to our every need, the restaurant was modern, the river view was amazing!
The meal was excellent.
The service was a little disorganized.
Took a very long time to get our bill. Had to ask several times and then when we got the bill had to walk out to the front desk to pay.
First time dining here, had the most amazing experience with the beautiful good and service.
Sashimi, black cod and mushroom salad were all superb dishes. Haven’t had a meal quite like it elsewhere very unique.
We had a 6 course degustation for $63 which was amazing value. I would definitely go again.
I've been to Heston Blumenthal's Fat Duck in Bray,in the UK. Sono is much better and about 1/20 of the price. Cost us £ 1000.00 (one thousand pounds or about $2,000) for an awful meal.
Amazing as always!!!
One of the best Japanese restaurants in Brisbane. I definitely re-visit here with my family.
Fresh sashimiw with good service!
excellent banquet options - were able to substitute options for food allergies - host was lovely and very polite - food kept coming - private booth was great for 4 people - will come again
Always enjoy my visits to Sono, one of my favs
Sensational sushi and sashimi...and equal to that, excellent attentive professional service with a smile.
The food is delicious healthy and beautifully presented. The service was excellent. Good value for money. We will definitely return.
Perfect date night spot! Celebrated my partners birthday dinner and we got the SONO tasting banquet, worth every cent! Couldn’t recommend enough
