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.

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

I have dined at this one in downtown Sonora quite a few times. I have also enjoyed some of the same dishes as the Columbia El Jardin. The food quality is consistently good at both. Salsas and chips are great (both corn and flour chips, red and cabbage salsa). The Sonora location features a full bar, and my wife likes... More

While returning from Yosemite National Park we had an overnight stay at Sonora and before leaving for San Francisco we moved around this small but well planned historic town for a vegetarian food. After a bit of sight seeing at Columbia State Park/village we found this restaurant near Sonora Court House and opposite Military Museum (closed on Sundays). As we... More
