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.

We went to this restaurant for a lunch meeting and ordered the selection suggested by the people we went with. It was all fresh and really good.

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

I agree with others that the food can be "hit or miss". Last night was a miss. The restaurant was nearly empty at 6:45pm and we were seated way in the back of the restaurant ( three adult diners). They charge $.95 for a small portion of habanero sauce and my friend's carnitas was severed with 2 small flour tortillas.... More

Sonora Grill is amazing! They start you off with about 8 inch round tortilla chips that you break and dip in their 2 kinds of salsa, a smoky red salsa and a tomatillo and lime green salsa. My favorite is the green. The best item on the menu is Carnitas Nortenas......amazing slow roasted and pulled pork that is then fried... More

My hotel is across the street and they recommended. Lunch was fantastic I may return for dinner. Serving full size taco chips with my salsa forced me to not eat a whole basket. I ordered enchiladas rice and beans. It was great and I am stuffed.
