Excellent food and cocktails!
Excellent food and cocktails! It was very difficult to hear eachother speak in our party of 4, because this place is so popular and always booked.

Great first night in Phoenix
It was our first night in Phoenix. The restaurant was very friendly and they sat us almost immediately. The food was wonderful (from steak, fish and cowboy stew for our table) and it was a nice way to start our trip in Phoenix where most of the restaurants seem to be franchises.

Sierra Bonita Grille is a favorite!
On my third visit to the Sierra Bonita Grille, I was accompanied by a vegetarian
and a very picky eater. My meat-free friend had an Ahi Tuna salad which he enjoyed,
my picky friend stuck with a burger done precisely as she liked and I had the pork
tenderloin which was tender, done medium rare (as i requested) and topped with a
light, exquisite sauce. The guacamole appetizer was very tasty and, as our lovely server
suggested, the bread pudding was the best I've ever had. The restaurant was crowded, but the noise level was never intrusive and the service was impeccable.

Save room for dessert!!!!
Family dinner (kids 7 & 9) while on vacation and kids are still talking about the dessert!
No matter what else you get, make sure you try the buttermilk pie and the bread pudding - made with croissants (and no raisins!) Both desserts were some of the best we've ever eaten.
I saw someone's mention of elote here on trip advisor and asked the server what it was. Basically, it's just the BEST corn on the cob you will ever taste!!! We ordered it as an appetizer (it's on the 'sides' menu) and were very pleasantly surprised by how good it was.
Everything else we had was tasty as well - sangria, buttermilk chicken, the steak (not the tenderloin), and a salad with an interesting basalmic vinegarette. Also had the pork tenderloin which was

This was our third visit and
This was our third visit and we enjoyed it again. The mushroom appetizer was way too salty but the entrees were perfection. The bread pudding dessert was phenomenal! The room was quite nosy making conversation difficult.

Again, one of the best!
This is one of our favorite restaurants in Phoenix, and again, they proved themselves to be one of the best. We went there to celebrate a birthday at lunchtime. It was quieter than dinnertime there, and we enjoyed that. The service was excellent!

We had a wonderful server,Mairin. She provided excellent service and also fixed an ice tea to go. The food was somewhat spicy for myself yet very tasty and enjoyable.

Had the specials and they were terrific. Company was impressed.

We have been there several times & have taken friends & family. Every time the food never disappoints. The pork loin is my husbands favorite. I have had the fish & chicken dinners.. excellent.
5/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food quality was very good. Quantity could be a bit better. They did not have white zin wine....Huh? A bar that runs out of white zin.....Not good.
5/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
This is our seventh or eight time at the restaurant and would be more but it is across town. The food has a unique southwestern flair that works great, I recommend the Fundido & Chips to start or the Guacamole. Green Chile Pork, Carne Asada, or if you are hungry the Pork Osso Bucco. All top notch excellent. Moderate prices. Can't wait to get back.

Catch up lunch with my best friend
My best friend and i try to meet once a month for lunch to catch up with each other. We try different locations that are near her daughter's school so we can spend the maximum time together. When we arrived we were seated immediately and our server brought out our drinks right away too. We both decided quickly on what we wanted and the server returned quickly with our appetizer. We ordered Ceviche and the Azteca soup, both were outstanding. Our server kept our glasses full without interupting our private and somewhat intense conversation. She was kind, helpful, knowledgable and very nice all around. i would highly recommend Sierra Bonita to anyone.

I love this place!
This was my fourth time to eat at the SBG and I have loved it every time. Each occasion was pretty different (girls happy hour, lunch with a friend, dinner with a friend, and lunch with the family) and the food has been great every time. On the last visit, I was a little disappointed to find that they were out of the soup I ordered (a menu standard) when our reservation was at the time they opened. What?? Oh well, I loved the soup I ended up with and will still go back. I really like this place.
5/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Liked it so much we went twice!
I had been here before on a business dinner with colleagues, so when my husband and I were in Scottsdale on vacation, we made the extra effort to drive into Phoenix to eat at Pueblo Bonita. He was so glad we did -- he loved, loved, loved the green chili pork and said it was the best meal all week. My filet was good, but not great -- a little on the thin side for my taste. We went back the very next night to try the red and green enchiladas, and they were also excellent (and much cheaper than the night before!)
6/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I went to celebrate our 23rd anniversary on a recommendation from my brother. Wonderful food - I definitely recommend the Hopper's Poppers, a great time and fantastic service. Loved being able to set a reservation online, too.

Food with Flavor
I have eaten here several times and each time the food has been very flavorful with a Southwestern flair.
6/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
SBG sandwich is the best burger I have had. The green chile is great with the fried egg and the ground beef patty with chorizo is amazing.
7/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great service, great food! Can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Be sure to get some peanut brittle to take home!
7/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great southwestern style food
Had the bacon wrapped shrimp appetizer, spinach and kale salad, and pork osso bucco, ALL EXCELLENT!
Large selection of tequilas too!
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing as always
Amazing food! I had the NY strip, my girl had the buttermilk chicken. Food was perfectly cooked, service was always at hand without being too pushy, even the guy who took my reservation have me the best inside booth in the house (I requested inside seating, preferably a booth). The waiter gave us a package of house peanut brittle ON THE HOUSE... Not many places that hold a candle to this place at the prices they have.

Uniquely Southwestern Food
The Sierra Bonita Grill has some truely unique dishes. We each ordered a different entree and shared because we could not decide. All the food was excellent.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was made perfectly and arrived quickly when ordered. Based off a recommendation from the waiter my wife had the chicken which was delightful. We also order an appetizer and a meal off the specials list which was a truly good choice as there was nothing left on the plate. Feeling full still managed to fit in a dessert which was the icing on the cake. From the friendly helpful staff to the quaint atmosphere this really was a great dining experience.

The special was excellent
We frequent Sierra Bonita often and enjoy the changing specials as well as their regular fare. Today's special was excellent: we tried both the salmon and the baked cod. Both were served to order (few restaurants understand that fish continues to cook several minutes after it is removed from the heat so it usually arrives overdone) It was seasoned with a unique black bean chorizo paste that was creamed with avocado. The flavor combination was truly inspired.

Very good but too pricey.
Very good but too pricey. $7 for a cup of soup; $10 for a berry tart.

can't believe I haven't been here b
I have lived nearby for years and never tried this place but had a well served, finely prepared lunch earlier this week. Was able to talk and listen with a friend and will definately return. I had the fish tacos and was able to select from three different types of fish...none of which were bottom feediers. My choice, the cod, was prepared perfecty. l I can't think of any negatives about this place and will definately return many times.

This restaurant was recommended by two concierges in Phoenix, so off we went! When we arrived for our 5pm reservation, we were worried that the small lot was empty. Not to worry - full parking by the time we left & valet was busy with new arrivals. Atmosphere was nice & our booth comfortable - we were seated near cowboy art & a lovely saddle. Server was attentive & friendly. Guacamole appy w/ three salsas was tasty, but small for $9. Chips were average. Meals were outstanding: pasta w/three meats (sausage was awesome), pasta w/poblano cream sauce had just a little heat, & buttermilk chicken w/cracked pepper gravy & spiced sweet potatoes was fantastic. Brownie dessert delish, but overpriced at $9 for a small ramekin. Overall, great food!

This is a great place for a business lunch. It's hidden away, so you have to actually be looking for it to notice it. Thanks goodness for word of mouth recommendations.

Definitely above the norm
Menu has varied offerings, semi-classics to innovative. Service was attentive. Ceviche was sublime. Both Mexican and American entrees. Truly delicious. We had the best meal we have had in a long time.

Top 5 Phoenix Weekend Brunch
I would easily classify this in the top 5 for brunch on a weekend. This was our 2nd trip, and we brought parents along this time. We sat on the patio in very comfortable chairs. Each of us tried a different menu item and was very impressed. The bar/server staff were always nearby and attentive, and both of them smiled whenever they interacted with the tables. I can think of nothing negative about our experience, truly a great way to start the day. We are anxious to try the dinner menu, too.

This restaurant consistenly provides great food, great service, and a warm enjoyable atmosphere for dining and socializing.

Our favorite restaurant
We have been going to Sierra Bonita for 6 years and have never once been disappointed with our meal. If you are hungry for a larger entree, you can never go wrong with the specials. Saturday night we had smoked prime rib that was to die for. One of our favorite menu items are the poppers - the filling is wonderful and since they are served in their cast iron skillet, they stay hot. Cowboy stew, posole, trout, coffee-rubbed pork roast, enchilada suizas, you name it, we like it. We were pleased to see that they returned a couple of our old favorites on the winter menu.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food on a rainy night.
How often does it rain in Phoenix? So, we had a warm cozy evening at the grill and very much enjoyed it. Great food, creative cocktails and wonderful desserts to finish and nice evening with family!!
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
We enjoyed the special
Sierra Bonita is a regular stop for lunch when we are in the area. Today's special, as usual was outstanding. Today we had the open faced prime rib sandwich and steamed vegetables instead of French Fries. The food is always delicious and made to order.
11/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
Try the Cowboy Stew. Nothing like it anywhere else.
11/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Lunch at Sierra Bonita is always a treat. This time I had the fish special: Grilled Mahi, that arrived fresh juicy and not overcooked. It was paired with fresh grilled vegetables. Their beer of the season was a Pumpkin Porter, which was very flavorful.
12/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
I had eaten here once years ago, and forgot how good it was. Looking at the menu before we went made my mouth start watering. The food didn't disappoint. My prime rib was perfectly cooked and a nice sized portion was fantastic. Her chicken dish was also wonderfully prepared and delicious. We will have to return more often.

Great Mexican Food
Overall our food was fantastic! We started out with the bacon wrapped BBQ shrimp which was perfectly cooked and had great flavors! The main entree was Cowboy Stew and Enchiladas Suizas which was great as well. The stew came in a large portion and the Mexican rice was very good. My fresh squeezed margarita was seriously the best one I have ever had!! To top it off, dessert was the chocolate souffle which was cooked perfectly. Our waitress was decent when she was around, but she did not check on us as much as we would have liked. The ambience was very nice, quiet, and romantic. It was dark inside with candles at every table. I highly recommend this unique Mexican restaurant.
