My guy and I were staying at the Sonora Inn so eating at Christopher's Restorante was something we we wanted to do as soon as we saw the menu. It is a smaller, more intimate venue...just perfect for two. It's not loud, so you can talk and enjoy your company. We shared a Pinot Noir that both of us enjoyed... More

Staff very attentive to our needs. Clam appetizer was yummy!! I had the chicken marsala and it was quite chewy. Like the meat was cheap or maybe old. The lazana was very flavorful. I would go back again, but maybe just for appetizers.

We were looking for a nice restaurant to celebrate our 6th anniversary. We happened to pass by Christopher's Ristorante just as they opened for dinner. The owner greeted us at the door and seated us at a wonderful table. He explained the special of the day including an amazing orange balsamic chicken pasta dish. I had to try it and... More

The freshness of the ingredients is what I enjoyed most. Comfortable surroundings, nice wait staff. I was there for lunch and felt that they weren't expecting working people to be there who have to come and go rather quickly. But when we mentioned our time constraint the staff responded and our waitress made sure that everything was taken care of... More

This is a nice family restaurant with a lot of warmth. Very good ambiance and food. We tried Alfredo Pasta, Crab Ravioli, Lasagna and Marcella Chicken. All were good. Wine was decent and my son just loved their Tiramisu.

One of our favorite restaurants in the area. It's a family affair, Christopher is the chef, dad is maitre d', wife is waitress. All lovely people and the food is reliably excellent. Good wine list too.

Several people of our group stayed at the Sonora Inn and decided to try-out this restaurant after being disappointed with two others. We were very happy we did and we were glad of its convenient location. We will patronized this establishment everytime we visit Sonora (we also liked the Sonora Inn).

The restaurant had been advertised as an Italian place, but was in the process of changing their menu when we arrived. That being said, we were not disappointed. The service was by far among the best we experienced anywhere in our two-week trip to California, superior to what we normally encountered. And every waitress in the place was gorgeous, like... More

We were staying at the hotel that this restaurant was located. Always a bit leery when the hotel recommends a place to eat that is in the hotel. What a pleasant surprise. Had a great pork tenderloin with bacon jam, smoked gouda cheese and 5 berry sauce cooked to perfection. Outstanding eats. Service was right on, although the staff was... More
