Sono Restaurant Portside Wharf
Service plus friendly. Could not recommend it more highly.
Great food well oreoared
Beautiful to look at, and deliciously prepared food. Paired with amazing wine. The Sashimi was outstanding.
Loved this place. Will be back
Great food & service, very extensive menu. Food was lovely & fresh
Service was great, food was good and staff went out of their way. They wrote in chocolate happy birthday on the sweets plate for my wife.
Overal great experience. Final meal of Wagyu steak slices on top a little grill was tough and chewy but all preceding dishes were excellent.
Great food, good efficient service, happy staff
All staff are highly trained to provide exceptional services. Their seafoods are fresh. Quiet and nice ambient.
Needs to be shut down.
No idea regarding people with food allergies.
No idea on prevention. No idea on what to do if there becomes a problem.
Good food and excellent customer service.
Wonderful service! Awesome atmosphere! Amazing food!
I have booked through Sono website but staff could not find my booking, it was embarrassing. Lucky the manager Chinese girl found it.
Food was not hot enough, feels like it was cooked and did not delivery to our table on time.
Service girl was very nice.
Sono offers the authentic Japanese dining experience in Brisbane. I hope they will reconsider reopening a branch in the CBD as it is a little too far for an eager diner like me.
The staff are very respectful and ask to take the plates away only when we are finished and always have a cheerful yet sincere appearance. Their attention to detail is impeccable. The food is amazing with beautiful traditional flavours. Each year we come to Sono to celebrate our birthdays and are very disappointed. It truly feels like we are in Japan.
I have never had a bad experience at Sono. Impeccable service and every dish is always plated to perfection.I have celebrated many wedding anniversaries and birthdays there. I wholeheartedly recommend Sono to anyone wanting a memorable experience. Possibly the best restaurant in Brisbane.
Relaxed friendly atmosphere. Outstanding food and good service. Highly recommended if you enjoy top class Japanese food.
As always the perfect Japanese dining atmosphere and service experience.
My requests catered for without question even through online booking.
My partner so enjoyed a special occasion experience.
This is around our tenth visit to Sono. I keep trying to find something to whinge about but I can't find one.
Brilliant food, excellent service, fantastic atmosphere. An absolute gem.
One of the worst dining experience I had. I made the reservation on their website few days ago and I specifically asked for a widow seat table. Nobody contacted me to inform me that the table is not available, they just had to tell you in person. When I was expressing my frustrations, all I got from the staff is "well, you did not book the table through me". Thank you very much for you attitude, and see you never.
Beautiful layout, staff went above and beyond with service and very sweet and helpful for 2 vegans at my table. We will be back
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.
