We recently dined at Sonata. All in all it was very good. The atmosphere and service are outstanding. Unlike most byobs the room is not overcrowded with tables. We had plenty of space around us and could hold a conversation at normal levels even when the room was full.
We were warmly greeted and the service remained excellent throughout the evening.

We were given lovely large herbed rolls with olive oil for dipping. They must have been house made.

My husband is gluten intolerant and the server presented him with a printed gluten free menu. For apps we ordered potato leek soup, gumbo, lobster crepes and pork belly. All were beautifully presented and excellent. In particular, the pork belly was outstanding.

For entrees we had the stuffed chicken and potato wrapped black cod. Both were good, one diner felt that the chicken was a tad overcooked. The cod was terrific.

For dessert we all had the chocolate fantasy which consisted of a chipwitch, warm chocolate beignet and chocolate tart. Wow -

After dessert we were given homemade chocolate covered salt caramels. The best I have had in a long time.

They offer a $32 three course special on Sundays and Wednesdays.

We will happily return to dine at Sonata again. This could be our frequent go to place except for one flaw. Most of the dishes were very rich. The chef is not shy with cream and butter.
All in our party felt that we would prefer a lighter presentation for most items in the menu.
