Love the outdoor seating, very tranquil ambiance. Nice menu for something a little different. Excellent service and food. Recommend for a nice dinner.

Vegan dish is excellent. They have a wine machine that keeps "wine by the glass" fresh. Many restaurants when they serve wine, it may be open for two days or longer, although recorked. Here it has no air in the bottle so the wine is always fresh. They have a wine bar, too. French dishes are the chef's favorite to... More

It was our first time at Sent Sovi Wine Lounge to celebrate our anniversary. While we had a reservation at the Main restaurant, we preferred to eat at the more intimate and cozy Wine Lounge. Outdoor garden seating looked inviting too. We both had the $15 wine flight and 4 course tasting menu for $35 each, not disappointing. Food was... More

I have never had a bad experience at Sent Sovi. The food is always fresh and delicious. The menu changes all the time. You can look at the menu on their website. The wine list is large and you can have three sizes of pours: 2oz, 3oz, or 5 oz. The wine bar behind the restaurant is a great place... More

This restaurant is hidden behind the main Restaurant with the same name. The owners added "Wine Lounge." Yes, confusing, but great little sophisticated hole in the wall. The menu is short, but everything we ordered has an acceptable portion and was favorable. The small selection of beers on tap were great. Craft brews. They offered flights of wine as well.... More

There is a great little wine bar at the back of the Sent Sovi restaurant where they serve great four course meals for $35. Great tip is to go on a Tuesday when the wines by the glass are 50% off!! The wines are excellent, but can be quite pricy on any other night. There even was a $50 glass... More

This is a wonderful dining experience at Sent Sovi for special occasions. I would suggest the six course tasting menu along with the wine pairing. The wild mushroom risotto and the lamb chop and the desert was perfect! The risotto had a hint of truffle oil and top with wild mushrooms and The lamb chop with cured tomato and artichoke... More

I usually go to the Sent Sovi wine bar, just off the main restaurant. Chef Josiah Slone provides a different menu here than he does at the main restaurant, consisting of small plates and one $35 prix-fixe 4-course dinner per week, so it's a more affordable alternative with the same care and quality ingredients. He gets everything for the week... More

I bought a coupon through Travelzoo to try this place. I went with my wife for dinner last Friday. The ambiance was great, the service was excellent, the wine was also good. Servings are very small, which is to be expected at a French restaurant. I really liked the lamb chop and the ricotta Napoleon. I was celebrating my wife's... More

My husband and I go to Sent Sovi for our anniversary because it's one of the finest restaurants in Santa Clara County. The menu is pre-planned so you make no choices of your own. But it is all carefully executed down to the tiniest detail and well worth the price, which is definitely on the higher side.
