The Sonora Grill is not the place you go to for Mexican food you can get everywhere else. There are at least 50 restaurants in the Ogden area where you can get "decent" mexican food. But I don't want "decent" Mexican. I want "different" Mexican and I get THAT at the Sonora Grill. I love that their chips and salsa... More

I happened upon this by mistake. I was real sure at first but was really fresh and delicious dishes. Atmosphere was great for a date night. Higher priced then other restaurants in the area.

Mexican food was average and the prices are high. The atmosphere is nice but I can get Mexican food, other places for less that is much more impressive.

A mix of fancy Mexican and California cuisine. A nontraditional menu but inspiring and delicious. Outdoor seating is lovely in the summer and the food is fresh and innovative. This is a great option for something different but a little Mexican.

We have been to the Sonora Grill several times in the past and stopped by for dinner again. We were seated on the patio which has a view of the mountains and, on this visit, a guitarist playing outside the Sonora Grill enclosure. The waiter was pleasant. I asked for iced tea which I have had every other time we... More
