Really Great Service
The service, food, and ambiance was great. We were seated almost immediately because of OpenTable app. The service was very friendly and the fact they moved us to the private dining area because we had extra people show up made the whole experience feel a little VIP which is pretty cool considering we didn't pay extra for it. I would ask for my waitress again if i knew who she was. First time in a while my wife recommended we give extra tip.

Food is flavorful and well
Food is flavorful and well presented. Fresh ingredients abound. Lovely atmosphere and perfect service. We had a group of 8 including teens and seniors and all were happy with the evening. Great options for a nice night out.

Traditional Fare, Exciting Twists
Sometimes you get tired of the same ol', same ol'--especially when it comes to Mexican food. Anyone can slap together a tortilla and some cheese and call it good, but Sonora Grill has taken Mexican food to a higher level by adding a little twist to what they serve. Even an item like refried beans tastes different here--lighter and seasoned just right. I had the chicken quesadilla (I know, I know--SUCH an adventurer), and added a little of the spicy red dipping sauce that comes with your free freshly made chips, and I had a little party in my mouth. I once ventured out and ordered the Conchinita Pibil--I generally don't eat foods I can't pronounce :)--and it was a decadent surprise. What are you waiting for? Go eat now!

Way Above the Norm
Great Mexican food, great service, reasonable prices. It's a match. The Conchinita Pibil is an awesome diversion from burritos and enchiladas. It's worth the risk.

casual, nice date, or family dinner
The food is pretty good, the service has always been good and the atmosphere is casual. I like the booths around the perimeter of the restaurant that provide some level of privacy while still allowing for good people watching. Using opentable.com to make the reservation was easy and once we arrived we did not have to wait, we were seated with in a few minutes of our reservation time.

I had a meeting in Ogden early last week that ran into lunch. One of the attendees suggested we have lunch and we walked to Sonora Grill. I've walked by before just visiting the area, but never ventured in. I liked the atmosphere, and the food enough that I've been back twice already in less than 2 weeks. The food is flavorful, the lunch specials are a great deal, and unlike most restaurants in Utah, their margaritas actually taste really good ( especially the mango habanero!)

No wait with Open Table!
My husband and I have taken my Mom to Sonora Grill whenever she visits. Her favorite is the Chili rellenos! The food is good, and the Mango Margarita is Great! This visit was our best because of Open Table. We made our reservation on-line just 45 minutes before we wanted to arrive and we were seated immediately!

It is some of the best mexican food in Utah but you do pay for what you get.

I used to think that an upscale Mexican restaurant couldn't be done but these guys pull it off. The place is great and the location is perfect. I got something new this time around. Carnitas Norteñas. I will never not get it again. I was floored at how good it was. Tender pork with crispy seared edges, coconut rice, a killer sauce and wrap it in a tortilla. It was truly delicious.

Great food. Good service. The table-side guacamole is a must. We continue to go back again and again. Haven't found anything not to like on the menu yet.

Not so great ceviche
I chose this place because I was looking for a place for my bday that would serve Mexican food and have a recommended ceviche. I got the ceviche trio, somewhat disappointing, only liked one the three ceviches, I've had many really good ones and these were not great. The guacamole was not very good either, it was dry and could have used more pico and variety in it, the mojito was one of the worst ones I have ever had, and I've drank a few. The ambiance was nice, the server was really good and pleasing. I would come here again with my family, and order different things. Good thing the service was great, or it would have been a bust.

Not bees! Anything but bees!
The wait for a table was minimal, and the reservation made earlier was probably unnecessary given how quickly people were seated. The waiter, Clark, was exceptional. He was very attentive, knew the menu well, and made suggestions to help us decide. I had the cochinita pibil, which had good flavor and was very tender with a good presentation. My other half had the carne asada tacos, to which is the only minor complaint I could possibly make. While the steak was very tender, the tacos were lacking in spice and flavor. The dessert menu posted on the website is incorrect, which was a bit disappointing since that it what sold me on going there. We did have the cheesecake chimichanga, at Clark's suggestion, and it was superb.

Maybe a new favorite restaurant!
The food was simply awesome. The salsa and fresh guacamole were a hit and the burritos we had were fantastic. I was very impressed by the service as well. Many staff members jumped in all the time to keep our group topped off on everything from drinks to more chips and salsa and they were very friendly as well. Great first impression and we will be back for sure!

Successful Birthday Bash
I booked a table for 12, and had only 10 guests,and it worked out perfectly. Our food was delicious and our waiter was fantastic. My Dad says he always has a hole in his cup, and the waiter always made sure it was topped off. He was attentive and friendly. He handled our big group like a dream, no one was left wanting. I even got free sopapillas for my birthday, and that encouraged everyone else to buy a dessert as well, so that was a bonus for your restaurant. Everything was a success, and my birthday was well enjoyed, and our waiter even was willing to take a picture of our group for us. WE had a blast, Thank you!!!

I've been here many times, and as always, it was very tasty! The ambience, drinks, and good food will always keep me coming back for more. Service was a little rushed and our waiter wasn't very personable. He asked if we would like guacamole made at the table, my boyfriend said yes, but the waiter must've forgotten because next thing we knew our food was there. No guacamole. But the dishes made up for it. I'll still keep coming back.
