Great place! – We have been several times and last summer bought a home in St. Augustine and will be moving there in about 18 months. We enjoy evenings at Sangrais listening to the great smooth jazz and the soft candle lighting makes for a great romantic atmosphere.
Tasty and surprisingly filling tapas – Visiting St. Augustine for a mid-week break we stopped in to Sangria's on a whim on a Monday evening, and found we were the only customers there until another couple came in halfway through our meal. We had the cheese & fruit plate: a sample of 6 different cheeses with some fruits and plenty of delicious rosemary foccacia bread. This was surprisingly filling. Then I had a spinach/cream cheese stuffed phyllo pastry served on mixed greens - good, but not great and especially for the price. The portion was small and the stuffing underseasoned. My other half had the seared tuna - this was good portion size but a little overseasoned. The spice rub/crust was a overpowering and detracted from the sushi-grade tuna.
The ambiance in the bar is really nice, art on the walls, softly lit with candles on each table, although the choice to show Seinfeld reruns on the TV above the bar was odd. The service was good too, and the wait for the food was a strong indicator that each plate was freshly prepared. I also had a glass of sangria (I don't remember the name, it had pineapple and orange in it) and the large 16oz serving justified the price. It was great, not too sweet. Overall, I recommend the bar/restaurant but we'd probably try a different entree plate next time.
