I’ve had everything on the menu here now and everything is as good as the next. So consistent! Sonora is so unassuming and then you eat there and realize it’s some of the best food in the city. It’s always our go to spot now. They are very covid careful and patio seating is spaced appropriately. Love this place!

Sonora is a regular go-to spot for us: the food is always delicious, the service is phenomenal, and we've especially enjoyed the patio option in the midst of the pandemic. It's very easy to join their waitlist or make a reservation, and we're never disappointed when we eat at Sonora.

Lovely! A1 food & service. I love how they’ve adapted to COVID to minimize contact. The place was pretty dead on a Saturday night, so I hope Sonora can survive. The Hermosillo roll is DELICIOUS. Best “sushi” we’ve ever had! Thank you!

Sonora Grill was excellent! Good food, and excellent service. And it felt very safe - you text your order to the kitchen, it's served by a masked server, and there is minimal contact overall. Social distancing is observed and all tables are the appropriate distance apart. I will definitely go back, especially on a warmer day so I can eat on the patio!

A quiet little oasis right on Lake Street! Comfortable outdoor seating, mostly in the shade. We had tempura fish tacos, chicken rojo tacos, fries and a quesadilla. All were excellent! The fish is not greasy and comes with crunchy slaw. The chicken taco includes bits of fresh orange to brighten the flavor. The fries come with a tangy cilantro cream sauce that I loved much more than boring catsup. Changes for social distancing include placing your order by text, which worked really well! Our server was attentive.
