I liked this place for lunch, service was great and fast. The food is not traditional, but rather kind of california cuisine thrown into traditional mexican food. I thought the menu was kind of limited, no burritos. The pork enchiladas were good, as were the refried black beans. I might go back, but would rather go to a traditional mexican... More

Sonterra has always been a dependable downtown dinner spot and we have been regulars there since it changed from Primitivo many years ago. This was the one memorable time they totally missed the mark. Unfortunately it was for New Year's Eve dinner. We had reservations and were promptly seated by the hostess when we arrived. Unfortunately our server, Brent, had... More

Sonterra Grill is a nice option for a meal before a show or after a movie. The atmosphere is nice and they attempt to present slightly upscale Southwest food. The salsas are tasty and, like their sister restaurant Salsa Brava, be sure to ask for the pineapple-habanero salsa. While some of the dishes are creative, often the spices are a... More

On our last night in town we decided to try the Sonterra Grill. The food was very good as was the service. Thought about having the tortilla soup as an entrée, glad I opted for the appetizer serving....very spicy. We enjoyed reading the green friendly efforts being made by management. Had never given a thought to how many plastic straws... More

The quality of food and service are and have been consistently good over all of the years they have been open. Their wine list is small but good. The chips and salsa they bring to the table while you review the menu are good and taste home made.The Tortilla Soup has always been one of my favorites for lunch. Last... More

Excellent food…absolutely the best Mexican food I have ever eaten. I visited this restaurant a few months ago while on business travel and it was awesome, the food and service was above my expectations. For starters I had chips and salsa which was different because I’ve never had warm salsa but it was very good, I enjoyed it. For lunch... More

Another excellent meal at Sonterra. Great atmosphere, excellent food and excellent service. The table side guacamole is a must and the specials are also perfect for the season and well worth trying. It continues to be one of my favorite places to eat.

A haven in downtown Colorado Springs. The layout is innovative and friendly. Light, airy atmosphere. Great service and very innovative Mexican dishes. Delicious. Busy and especially in the evening you need a reservation.
