Global, International
The kind of neighborhood gathering for spirits, wine and bites in the Rice Village.
A courtyard entry with a summer-European feel – complete with candles and comfortable seating – leads the way into an inviting space where the casual and friendly hospitality set the stage.

Whether sharing stories at the friendly bar, sitting in an intimate corner or gathering with a group at the community table, there’s always something interesting to see, and definitely, always something great to eat and drink at Simone on Sunset.

We have amazing cocktails that will tantalize your palate. Don’t be afraid to ask our bartenders for something special and not the usual Rum and Coke.

    We went last Thursday for a casual dinner with friends … the waitress was very inattentive. She did not check on us for more drinks, our charcuterie table was missing the meats, so basically was a cheese table, she also forgot to bring one of the items we ordered. I had been at this place before and I loved it; unfortunately last time the service was so bad that I don’t think we will come back. It is pretty sad because the place is so cozy and nice and the food it’s really good as well.

    Grateful that the valet service is back. Still one of my favorite restaurants but this time the staff service wasn't as good as before. Great drinks. Food delivery was really slow but I think we just came on a really crowded night. I'll definitely be back maybe not on a Thursday.

    We really enjoyed our evening. It was cozy and the service was good and the wine was great. But we were warm, and it was pretty dark and the music was loud. It was hard to hear each other. And our seats (love seat) were really low. I felt like I needed a booster chair. Still, we had a great time.

    We were seated at 6:35. Order placed at 6:45: 3 appetizers and 1 drink. Drink came at 7:20. 2 appetizers were served at 7:55pm. Waited till 8:15 for the 3rd appetizer and finally decided to leave. Basically left hungry ( didn’t even order main course). We sat there waiting for 3 appetizers which were not served on time. The waiting is beyond ridiculous and the restaurant was not full capacity; all seating areas near us( sofas) were empty. The waitress then gave us our check: instead of charging us Happy Hour: she charged us full price. The receipt showed order placed at 7:24! We are not coming back. Waste of an evening! P.S- we had a reservation!

    There is potential. Some food was way off the mark. Benedict eggs are NOT boiled. Pizza was good. Drinks were hit and miss. Some good others just not balanced. Probably won’t go back unless someone specific in the group has a much better experience.

    Good food although small portions for the price. Drinks were good and mostly fairly priced although they took a while to come out. Service was slow and we had to call our server over multiple times bc she didn’t check in on us more than twice herself while we were there for 3 hours. It was not a busy night because servers were talking or distracted on their phones. Outdoor seating is pretty but they do need to do something to get rid of the mosquitos and put out more fans.

    We had a reservation for brunch at 11am. A couple was outside on the patio, no other customers were in the restaurant. We sat on patio, there was a squirrel harassing the other couple. I told the lady it’s probably because they have been feeding it. We ordered our drinks, they offered mimosas with fresh squeezed oj or grapefruit, among other choices. I ordered grapefruit, but they were out. I received flat Prosecco. We ordered our food, literally waited an hour for it. While we were waiting, a waitress arrived at work, and spoke to the squirrel by name, Simone. She went inside, returned with food, and proceeded to feed the squirrel by hand on the table right next to the other couple. No one came to check on us or apologize for the long delay for our order. Did I mention there were no other customers in the restaurant besides the four of us? An hour later, our food arrived. The waitress who fed Simone the squirrel was one of the employees who delivered our food. Unfortunately, we do not know if she washed her hands first. We ate, the grits were runny and I needed salt and pepper, but there wasn’t any outside. We finished our entire meal, no one came to check on us after dropping off the food, and I didn’t eat the bland eggs without seasoning. I requested they be removed from the bill. Never again….

    Simone on Sunset was a neighborhood favorite for years. It has changed significantly since the new owner took over a while back. I don't really enjoy loud, club-type music while having dinner. I'm fine with having to make a reservation, though it seems somewhat silly and pretentious for this place. The overall experience should be enjoyable. Service used to be very good but, in my experience, is now mediocre at best. It seems to me as if Simone on Sunset is trying to figure out what kind of place it wants to be, and who the target market is. Is this a neighborhood bar, even if a pretentious one? A nightclub with loud music? Who is the target market? I'm not sure. What I am sure of is that there are plenty of places within walking distance that consistently provide excellent service, ambiance, and an overall great experience.

    Food was good, cost totally fair. We sat outside. Waitress always seemed rushed despite it being a quiet Monday. Biggest issue was the mosquitos. We both got eaten alive and rushed through our meal and skipped dessert, only to go to CVS and get some benedryl cream. Still love this place, but treat the mosquitos. The outside is so charming, but no one will sit there if they leave looking like they have chicken pox

    My friends and I met Friday evening for book club. The atmosphere was great for our group and the noise level was not bad. The service was okay. They were not staffed well. The waitress did not do a great job with offering suggestions and said that they did not have any champagne or Rose, which was not true. The food was very good. We had pizza and apps, all good. I will go back.

    We went for Mother's Day Brunch. The ambiance is OK and the food was pretty good but the service was abysmal. We were seated in a little ante-room with a door to the outside that was not the main door. When people tried to enter through that door the server ran over and said 'no you can't come in here'!! The service was incredibly slow and inattentive. My husband ordered coffee and it came without cream, sugar, or a stirrer. When he pointed this out they brought a little jug of milk and a plastic cup of sugar packets. After ten minutes at which point the coffee was completely cold. They asked him how many sugars he wanted and they doled out the exact number from the plastic cup, instead of just leaving the cup with the sugar packets so he could take as many as he needed. Still no stirrer so he asked for a spoon. Ten minutes later they brought straws instead! I could go on and on. We also had to ask for salt and pepper and...wait and wait for them to bring it. My mom and my daughters' orders were partly wrong but we didn't complain because we were afraid of how long it would take to correct. We asked for something on the regular (not brunch menu) and were told we had to order from the brunch menu, although a table near seemed to have gotten food from the regular menu. Another table near us were seated ten minutes after we were and got their food ten minutes before we did. Would not recommend.

    I usually don't write reviews, but this time I'm so upset about my experience that I need to, it's been a few days since my visit and I thought I would feel better, But I just can't get the distaste to go away. I made a reservation via OpenTable for Easter Brunch, I arrived on time and no one was at the door greeting, I walked in a bit more and found a server, who immediately asked how she could help, I told of my reservation, and she pointed to the hostess who then approached me and said let me check if your table is ready (to my surprise), since all the tables had a visible reservation sign with the time on it, there was even a large table reserved for 4 p.m. She then came back and took me and my daughter to the back room to seat. The room is probably for overflow on a very busy day, the air felt musty and there was a smell in the room. I asked if I could get a different table which she replied they are reserved, so I asked again are you sure this is my table? she said yes and left. I had guests coming over and didn't want to cause a scene. The food was Ok nothing extraordinary, the service was lacking, our server took forever to help and check on us, even she commented on the air quality and the smell in the room. It wasn't until I received the email from open table saying I had missed my reservation, that I asked the hostess why she hadn’t checked me in for my reservation and she was very unapologetic about. What a shame to have a nice neighborhood place to get a bite and a drink that has this terrible employee and that can turn a nice holiday into a terrible experience. I felt so embarrassed with my guests, definitely a Holiday I will remember in the worst way possible. And then The restaurant responded accusing me of being late and lacking communications skills and manners...I mean who makes a reservation and walks in the restaurant without the phrase" I have a reservation" being the first thing that comes out of your mouth.

    We were really looking forward to this. But the service was really slow. (Not the waitresses fault.). I ordered the shrimp and it was completely tasteless. $16 for five small shrimp. The meatballs were tasty - but $16 for three small meatballs. We had a reservation - but were seated in a less than desirable location by the door. Cold breeze every time the door opened. We hope this feedback will encourage them to make some changes
