This is a local place near the B&B I stayed in. My companion and I slipped in for a nightcap and was pleasantly surprised by the warm and welcoming atmosphere and wonderful service! Definitely would go again when in Seattle!

We were stranded outside this bar when our AirBNB fell through. The owner's were very welcoming, invited us in and even helped us find a place close by where we could stay. They saved our trip! The bar has a great atmosphere with a beautiful...More

I visited last year. I am reviewing now because we opted for Amber (stepped in/ stepped out) and Ozzies Friday night and not Sonya's. I miss the peace and tranquility of this place *sigh*

Went to Sonya's for Christmas Day at about 4:00PM. The owners provided a buffet spread for their customers. Wow...what a great idea...so good!!!

It has the feel of a local bar with a bar type crowd. It has some good food but it's more a bar or pub than restaurant. We are staying a few doors down and stopped in for a night cap. No smoking. Friendly bartenders...More

We stopped in here for a nightcap after a long day. We ordered two double vodka martinis. The drinks were good enough. The decor was decent enough. The bartender was cold and unfriendly. He didn't speak to us at all. Then when my wife finished...More

Lots of people smoking on their front patio(which is not legal). Staff does nothing to discourage this and you get it even if you are sitting inside. A weak beer selection(for Seattle). Service was okay. Food is typical bar fare.

I had been curious about this place for years. Finally got the chance to check it out last week and was not disappointed. It's kind of dark and swanky, yet comfortable and casual at the same time. There was one bartender working at the time...More

Two stars for the atmosphere and décor. I was hoping my recent visit would be redemption of my previous. Nope. I ordered and unfortunately ate one of their "quesadillas" and ended up with severe gastrointestinal issues. It was the only thing I had eaten at...More

The beers are cold, the music is varied and excellent, and the decor is interestingly funky! It is in the heart of downtown Seattle on the edge of Belltown.

Not a clue. I have never been treated, or witnessed others being treated, like anything but a valued customer at Sonya's. The treatment might be in the eye of the beholder. Sonya's is a welcoming and friendly... More
