Our waiter was busy but remained attentive. The food was delicious and the drinks were strong. It was a delicious meal. I would come back if I... More

Four of us were quickly taken in and seated. We were put on the west side of the building very warm even with the sun shade so I wouldn't go there again Fish Taco , Chili Relleno were all good. The smokey pico degio was wonderful. Great service very attentive we will go back. I ordered a Long Island Ice... More

Went on a Friday evening, had reservations for a group of seven. Seated right away and the food was really good. Had the chili relleno plate. Wife had the tacos. Everyone in the group was pleased with the meal. The staff was friendly and efficient.

The food portions were very large and the variety was excellent. Most restaurants in Ogden are more family style food. This was definitely a will return.

Stopped on our way through town for a late lunch. Overall, the food was good and the prices for lunch were reasonable. Nice upscale atmosphere and good service. Loved the chile verde. Good flavor and texture. If I came back, I'd want more. Loved the sweet pork taco - pulled pork, pineapple, poco de gallo, and a smokey sweet good... More

The Sonora Grill offers great high end Mexican food. The only downside is the long wait times. They don't take reservations so if you don't want to stand around waiting for an hour go during a slow time. My wife and I went on a Friday night which was a mistake. The hostesses were not organized and were seating people... More

My husband and I tried it for the first time, while waiting for a movie to start across the street. The place seemed clean. It was a Sunday so not too busy. Very friendly waitress. I showed her I liked them on Facebook and received a complimentary drink. My husband is a very picky eater and even he was pleased.... More

We came as a big group (about 22 people) and we were seated in a separate area. Our drinks came right away and our orders taken. Because it was a big group, we were given a special menu with 4 dishes to choose from. I had the chili verde and my husband the beef burrito. We enjoyed both dishes and... More

Stopped in for late lunch on a Saturday afternoon. Service was great and the fish tacos were good. The chips and salsa along with the ice cold beer was a nice start for our dining experience. The atmosphere is casual. Only negative was they sat everybody in the same corner of the restaurant, got a little noisy. I will be... More

We have eaten at our fair share of restaurants in this area and Sonora Grill is the BEST. It is fresh local food. They accommodate our dietary needs and go above and beyond whenever a special request is made. The service is excellent, food fresh and hands down the best chips and salsa in Utah. The location is also extremely... More
