• Sante of Matthews

    I've eaten at Sante numerous times with two to four people. Always enjoyable. Tonight I brought a party of 9 business associates. The service was impeccable. Everyone raved about their food. Everything from trout to grouper to salmon to sirloin to chicken to pork chop. Watermelon salad was unique and tasty. In addition, Tuesday was half-priced wine bottles. Sante has been there for thirteen years. That alone should tell you it's an excellent choice for fine dining.
