Sono Restaurant Portside Wharf
We tried the Sono 6 course menu. Everything was divine. We'll certainly try other dishes next time, after seeing some of the amazing dishes brought to adjacent tables.
One of the most authentic culinary Japanese experiences I had in Australia. The food was absolutely divine and I only wish I lived in Brisbane so I could go back more often. The ambience and setting were incredible, the staff attentive, knowledgeable and really made us feel at home. I highly recommend!
Quality plus. A slice of Japan and a great dining experience.
Really superb dining experience in every way.
Fabulous- loved the food, wine, decor and service. 💕
As we arrived, we were welcomed by the host which was very courteous and friendly and that makes a good start as the welcoming was really warm. The Food is amazing. Very well presented and enjoy every mouthful with only a "WOW" factor.
The guy who serve us is also very good & professional about it & really made us very comfortable with the dinning experience.
To be honest this is not the first time we have dine in SONO. Every time we were there the service & the food have kept up to its standard
Positively one of Brisbane's best restaurants. Lovely food, excellent service, and a very special atmosphere make this one of the best in town. If you love Japanese food this is for you.
The waitress gave me the wrong food although I didn’t recognise at first. I reminded her while I was about to leave and she said nothing and did not come back to me. I then told the receptionist while I paid the check. One of the receptionist ( turn out she is the manager) said it was because I pointed to the wrong menu when I ordered. Sashimi is the resin I went to that restaurant. How can I make the mistake. They should’ve give me an apology instead of shifting the responsibility. Utterly awfu
We had a wonderful experience, the food was delicious with beautiful ambiance and outstanding service.
Amazing food, the place is quite nice and relaxed and all the waiting staff was amazing and very professional. Highly recommended for a special celebration.
Happy smiley warm waiter Xiang who made excellent suggestion of menu choice
The meals were delicious and very well presented. Dissappointing that as a high end restaurant you allow customers wearing actice wear to dine in the restaurant.
Quality of food, drink and service
Sono is and always will be one of my favourite spots to go. My guests and I got the $89 banquet and had plenty to take home afterwards. Servers are attentive and food is always impressive.
Great quality food with impeccable service!
Well worth a visit for high quality Japanese food
Highly recommend having 10 course dinnerset
Food came out consistently cold from starters to my $62 Wagyu steak. Sent steak back for it to reappear at the same temperature. Service was incredibly slow, drinks were exceptionally slow to come out. We have been going to Sono for years but there was something really amiss last night.
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
