                                                  I love this restaurant: it is lovely. Inside or outside, it's intimate and low-key vibrant; the food is superb and the flavor combinations gorgeously arresting. Well-curated wine selection. Always a pleasure dining here.

                                                  The service ambience ambience weren't too bad, but the food was awful and the liquor pouring were tiny.

                                                  Really loved our dinner here. Great food, service, and cocktails. Food was fresh and felt very clean and healthy. Beautiful space. Bring an umbrella on a rainy day, because access to the restaurant is uncovered and a short walk. The waiter was professional and kind. Will go back!

                                                  I thought that the service was excellent. I may have ordered the wrong items, but I was not impressed with the food. The ingredients were fresh, but the food was too salty for me. Even the chocolate tart was sprinkled with sea salt. That dessert would have been better if it had been paired with a sweet sauce. I normally love salt but not this time. My husband loved his food, so many I should order that next time.

                                                  Great good and wonderful drinks. The goats cheesecake was meh, but if you go to a restaurant a number of times you are bound to try something not to your taste. Overall love this restaurant. Been to it a few times and it always delivers a wonderful experience. Can’t wait for brunches to start again.

                                                  We have been consistently impressed since Santo opened with the chef's ideas, presentation and quality. We were surprised this week to realize the wine list is so 'top heavy.' I don't think there was a white wine bottle under $65 and then there was a quick jump to $100 and above. Overall, it didn't seem to line up with the menu. Also, having been the night before to a neighboring restaurant playing jazz selections, the audio loop with Saturday Night Fever seemed dated and loud for the sophistication of the decor. We will revisit in hopes of some tweaks.

                                                  A pleasant neighborhood spot. Good menu, nicely curated wine choices and knowledgeable staff. I do wish the seats were more comfortable. Far as I can tell there's exactly one table with comfortable seats and the rest are reminiscent of your last trip to the DMV. Would it be so impossible to have comfortable seats at all the tables?

We love going to Santo! It feels like you have arrived at your favorite neighborhood hangout with the staff being so welcoming and accommodating. We highly recommend this restaurant.
