Very healthy Mexican Food. The salsa was fresh and each entree was tasty. There was a good variety of vegan and beef, fish or chicken choices. The beans were cooked just right with great flavor.

The salsa was very good. I had a steak burrito, it was JUST a steak burrito! I thought maybe there would be beans or rice. Nope. The meat was tasty but I was disappointed. My family enjoyed their meals. The place was fairly busy. I would give it another chance

One of very few restaurants in Sonora open on a Tuesday evening. We were seated quickly. Interior dining room/bar area is quite noisy and the outdoor patio is very quaint, waitress was careful to seat us where ambient noise levels were low. Greeter brought drinks quickly, waitress was very helpful with menu choices, also very empathetic for my diet restrictions... More

Nothing fancy, good simple Mexican food. Friendly staff and fast service. In house margaritas go down well and the beer comes cold, what more could you ask for after a long hot days ride on a motorcycle.

Sonora doesn't have much in the way of good dining, but El Jardin has been a reliable spot for a lunch or a casual dinner - until tonight! Tortilla soup had 1/2 cup oil/fat floating on top. Got that off and took a bite of the chicken - spoiled! Someone is not paying attention!

Quaint, cozy restaurant. Nice meal and quick service. Very conveniently located to the Sonora Inn. We would go back to try other dishes on the menu. We got the recommendation from a great bartender at the local sports bar.

I like the Columbia El Jardin best, but the one on Washington street downtown would be my second choice. Great 'what you expect Mexican food to be' from El Jardin - their chips and salsa are wonderful - both corn and flour tortillas made into chips - really crispy and good. They have black beans as an option which I... More
