Sono Restaurant Portside Wharf
I was disappointed with the level of service and didn't feel it was a nice dining experience at all, given that we ordered the 10 course Zen meal which was not cheap, but all the dishes came out all at once instead of 1 by 1, so it was super rushed and was not like a 10 course experience. The finished plates were not cleared from our table before the other courses were served, so it was a huge mess with courses everywhere and plates all over the table. Sorry but I expected alot more from Sono.
The restaurant presents a pleasant Japanese experience. The food was beautifully presented and was everything I expected from a Japanese restaurant. Our table was by the large panoramic windows with views over the Brisbane river and city. You have to remove your shoes before being seated at your table so wear easy on/off shoes! Our waitress was very nice. Tempura main dish could be more generous as was bordering on scabby.
If you miss Japan, come here!
Absolutely beautiful food and service. Loved the opportunity to try things we had never had before and having a surprise dessert with 'Happy Anniversary' on it was a beautiful touch and made us feel very special.
Beautiful food and exceptional service, thoroughly enjoyed our evening here and would highly recommend 😊
The food was exceptional. Every course we had was of high quality and extremely flavourful. The sashimi was wonderful and nothing like the other restaurants I’ve been to. The wagyu was my favourite, it was soft, flavourful and I will never forget it. I’ve only ever heard good things about Sono and I’m completely satisfied with their customer service, especially our waiter Lawrence. I hope to come again soon.
Absolutely amazing restaurant. Could easily be a a top 3 jap restaurant in Brisbane.
Great for special occasions and dates.
Easy dish is well presented and very tasty.
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.
