Sono Restaurant Portside Wharf
The food was great, the service was exceptional. The waiters make the dining experience perfect.
Our group attended Sono on a Thursday night as a regular catch up, excellent service and food!
Sono is our favourite restaurant to visit when in Brisbane the food and service never disappoints
Has been allocated a private dining room at the corner (perfect, beyond our expectation !) even we booked just open table. Food and service were excellent as usual. Will come back for sure.
Sensational fresh food at Sono
Only critique would be that for a six course meal the dishes came out very quick with little gap in between. This made you feel rushed.
Beautiful foods with very private room and high class service.
Beautiful restaurant, friendly service, amazing food!
Would definitely come back again.
Best service and food. Authentic and the staff are incredible. Will be back again and again.
We love Sono. Family favourite for all birthdays and special occasions. Food and service amazing. Can't wait for Teppanyaki to start up.
We frequently dine at Sono Dockside and have done for many years. The food and the friendly service has always been top quality. We highly recommend this restaurant.
The food and the venue itself were fine if not remarkable. The process for checking in and paying on exit was chaotic and disorganized and the worst I have ever experienced since COVID started.
Previously my wife has enjoyed dining here with friends but this was my first and last visit as we will not be returning as the experience was certainly not enjoyable with my wife and I debating walking out before we were even offered a table after 10 minutes of standing round in the foyer...
The 6 course meal we had was outstanding. The food was fresh and delicious and the presentation was perfect. Service is equally great. All staff were courteous and friendly. I personally thought the size servings might not fill me up but surprisingly just before the main course I was pretty full. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and will surely come back soon! Great service Sono!
Exceptional service, beautiful décor & the best Japanese food in Brisbane! 10/10.
We have celebrated my mum’s 70th birthday at Sono Hamilton. The Zen Course is amazing we love all the dishes. The waiter Takeshi is very friendly and provide best service. Highly recommend to anyone looking for high quality Japanese food and very good service :)
Always a good experience dinning in for lunch or dinner. Service is good always smiling and caring making sure we were comfortable, if the food is ok etc.
The Black Cod is fabulous and that is one dish we never miss every time we dine in there.
On the whole it is a great place to have a nice evening out or catching up for lunch.
The freshness of the food.
All the Zen course dishes, except the black cod, were delicious. Japanese tuna belly, although expensive, was exquisite! Hojitcha tea was nice throughout the tasting journey. Matcha beer was intriguing, but nothing too special.
We had the 10 course Zen banquet. The 4 of us thought it was one of the most amazing dining experiences we have ever had. Wonderful staff. Food was amazing and presentation exceptional.
Outstanding customer service. Fresh sashimi. Great selection of Umeshu and Sake.
The food was incredible! The best authentic Japanese food I’ve ever eaten. The service was incredible and the wait staff helped me understand the menu and gave me great recommendations. I’d messed up the booking/date and arrived one day earlier however, the staff managed to fit us in and we even had our own private room. Was a great experience and the perfect way to finish our holiday.
Let’s just say, this was the best restaurant I’ve been in my life. Period! I’ve been around the world but this has beaten everything. Their food, atmosphere, service was amazing.
it's always great
Went here for the second time to celebrate a birthday.
We had a fabulous private booth with river views.
Had the Zen set menu and it was off the charts good.
Great wine list and great service.
Absolutely loved it!!
The food was delicious and presented well. Service was good and meals came out quickly. A little expensive for what it is but otherwise a nice dinner for a special occasion.
I thought the service, food quality and price was excellent. The wait staff are great and very friendly. They were always there when we needed something but didn't hassle us at all. We ate in one of their booths and really enjoyed the experience. Will be definitely going back to try their other dishes.
Good experience overall. Fresh fish as you won’t find in many places around. Superb drinks offer.
Dinning room too bright.
Sono is a must visit if you love Japanese cuisine. We were recommended to visit after raving reviews from a friend and we weren't disappointed. The service was fautless, the food was delicious and presented beautifully. We can't wait to come back next time we are in Brisbane.
If you want to relish that perfect Japanese cuisine then this is the place to try.
They have good options available on their menu all the way from starters to desserts and drinks.
We have enjoyed our experience of having dinner here with family and will visit for another occasion soon!
Excellent food and the Japanese waitress was so nice and friendly
Has been to Sono regularly for special event. Always a top choice with me because staff are attentive and helpful and polite.
If anyone has dined at other western restaurants you will know there is a clear difference in service attitude.
Will always recommend Sono Japanese.
We have been going to Sono Portside for as long as I can remember for every wedding anniversary and special birthdays. Service has always been impeccable and the food even more so. The attention to detail is second to none. Highly recommended.
Sono never disappoints. Everything about Sono is perfect. The service food and ambience is world class. Thank you for another outstanding dining experience.
It was a very good experience. The restaurant was able to cater to my requests and the food and services was amazing.
Like this restourant, nice food,super presentation,friendly staff definitely recommend it.
Excellent service. Food presented perfectly. Everything was delicious.
This is one of our favourite restaurants in Brisbane and we are lucky enough to live within 2 ferry stops.
The presentation and quality of the food is always outstanding as is the service. Right on the water with lots to see.
Whether it is a casual lunch before a movie, romantic date night, or a special occasion - you can't go wrong with Sono at Portside.
Food and service is excellent. You won’t be disappointed! We have been here twice in the past month and dined at both the 12:00 and 1:30 pm sitting. Both times the food was excellent. We ordered a la carte and had a starter, main and dessert. The 12 nn sitting appears to be rushed. You are reminded to finish after 1.5 hrs which I think is too short if you wanted to enjoy your meal. If you are wanting to take your time, book the 1:30 pm sitting. Service is the same, just not as hectic.
The best Japanese food in Brisbane. And they have a Japanese vegetarian menu which I used and everything was delicious.
What a fantastic experience. My partner and I went for date night. The device was fantastic and the sashimi to die for. We will definitely be coming back. Thank you Sono
The exuberant plating was an experience in itself. Beautiful food paired with the most wonderful sauces. Mock tail was delicious.
