Happy we did

During our recent trip i California we spent a nigth in Sonora. This restaurant made the stay worth it. The atmosphere is cozy, the menu is solid and the food was really tasty. But do come early - they closed at 10PM on a Friday.

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!

This is one of the best restaurants we have come across! Not only the food is tops, but the service is amazing. And the ambience is very pleasant, David, the host, is incredibley courteous, taking care of not only the people seated, also the ones waiting for a table!! The waitresses, Brie, and Heather, being the owner with her husband... More

After ignoring this restaurant for years because I never heard anyone local say anything about it (good of bad), friends dragged us to it. They had had an out-of-town guest who apparently loved this restaurant and had taken them there the week prior. Obviously they enjoyed it as they insisted we try it! Both my husband and I were pleasantly... More

We want out to this restaurant for a friend's birthday while visiting the area. Not knowing what the quality of restaurants were like we used Tripadvisor to look at all the restaurants in Sonora. We settled on this one. We were served straight away and our server came by as soon as we were seated. We loved the atmosphere and... More
