Salad made at the table

Italian theme is obvious in this large restaurant which has very friendly service and very tasty food. It's a sophisticated place so much so that Caesar salad is made at your table. Very impressive.

Sonora has been a favorite location for many years. While visiting with family there recently we decided to stroll through town a look for restaurants that could accommodate a gluten free diet. A requirement for us as my wife has Celiac disease. We came across Christopher's which had there menu displayed for people passing by. We returned that evening and... More

Very comfortable setting. Very friendly staff. They were more than willing to customize meals to our dietary needs and the food was ample and delicious. If you are in the mood for Italian, this is the place in Sonora.

This was an excellent dining experience. We each had entrees from the Butcher's Cut selections. I had the lamb which was the most delicious meal I've had in 20 years. My father had the NY Strip which he said was the most tender steak he ever had. We ordered a bottle of wine from the local Irish Vineyard. Everyone loved... More

My husband and I had breakfast here. The servers were very friendly and the food was good. I had the loaded hash browns with bell peppers, avocado, salsa and sour cream. It was clean and the food came in a reasonable time.

We were looking for a nice place to meet another couple for dinner in the foothills. What a great find was Christopher's! Decor is quaint, nothing fancy. However, the food and the service was outstanding. Very friendly! Lasagna was the best I ever had. Caesar salad made table side was a great starter. Everyone's pasta was homemade and delicious. Definitely... More

We had the best food in Sonora when we ate there! Our dinner was served by the owner and We believe his son did the cooking. Everything was the proper temperature, and very attractive on the dinnerware. I think it is Sora's best restaurant!
