After a bad experience with a surly bartender at Portland Hunt & Alpine, my wife and I came to Sonny's, sat at the bar and were greeted by Seth, a congenial and knowledgeable bartender. Great service, very tasty (and inexpensive!) nachos with a selection of...More

Had been in years because it was just - meh - for lunch. Decided to try again for an early dinner before the movies. Not even average. Not even happy hour chips and salsa are good. Swordfish tacos were dripping with grease...had to hold them...More

Went there for lunch with the kids. It was really good and the service was great too! We will definitely go back when we are in Portland again.

We go to Sonny's about once a year (we live locally), always hoping that something will improve, and sadly, they never do. We love their other restaurants (Salvage and Local 188) and their brewery (Bunker), but Sonny's always comes off as stingy and overly eclectic....More

We stopped for lunch and ended up disappointed with our meals. The menu was quite eclectic and from the description of the dishes they seem to be good choices. My wife asked for a cheese burger, holding the cheese as well as well done. I...More

Reluctantly agreed to come here for a nice drink with some friends.* It has long been a mystery why we end up here so often, since no one in the group will admit to liking the place, but tonight, the plot thickened. It all started...More
