Steakhouse

Sonora Prime is a Mexican steak restaurant and wine bar. The restaurant has two floors, each with their own distinct style. The first floor is more rustic, with lots of stained wood and warm earthy tones to create a relaxing atmosphere. The second is more modern and reminiscent of an upscale nightclub with wall to wall mirrors and large floor to ceiling windows that overlook the city. Sonora Grill Prime's menu celebrates the various cuts of steak and the many different ways to prepare them. These include rib eye carnitas and prime rib sliders.

Very good food and service. Great place if you enjoy red meat. Caesar salad was excellent.
Music/ video could’ve been more mellow and subdued.

Terrible experience , we had to leave right after we ordered our appetizer, but oh well we had gone to other several pricey & good rated restaurants! & they had attended us with attention & awesome food & service .. the sonora prime in andares , Guadalajara is definitely worth visiting. There service & food is at its best ! & top notch service , the one here lacks at service & not as good food ! Overall rating 1/10 stars .

Fantastic food and presentation. The vibe is great. Good wine/drink selection. Service top notch! Prices are over the top tho. Have been a couple times and always far and away the most expensive dinner during our vacations in PVR.

Usually love our experience here but they were out of most cuts of steak that we came for as well as trompo tacos. We usually love this place but the lack of main options was disappointing, especially on a night that wasn’t overwhelmingly busy or late.

The service at first was overbearing and invasive to our conversation, however, after our main entree we had to call our waiter several times to order an after dinner drink and dessert.

This is always a must visit when we are in PV! Amazing steaks that compare to upscale steakhouses in the US. Fun cocktails - Mine came in an inflatable flamingo! It’s definitely more expensive than other places in PV but worth a visit! Great servers and staff that make the experience enjoyable.

Excelente servicio, comida y atención en general.

Lo único incómodo es que nos conformes con las confirmaciones hechas a través de la APP para asistir, te llaman para reconfirmar si vas a ir o no!!!! Es un exceso de confirmaciones

NEVER again will we go here. We’ve been very loyal going to Senora Grill every year where we visit. This will be the last. The food quality has gone down and prices up. It is a chaotic, loud mess. To top it off, the rest of our meal we asked for “to go” was thrown away instead and they left us waiting for a (subpar) replacement for an hour. No one even said sorry or took responsibility for their error.

The food & service was good, nothing exceptional. Good value for money other than cost of liquor & Wine.

Music was to loud and the whole restaurant was to crowded, chairs kept getting bumped into by servers and patrons.

We have been to Sonora Prime a couple of times already. Noise level as always very loud.
We ordered USD Prime Steak, it arrive 2 hours after ordering. It was just very unpleasant.
Management took 50% off the bill, but still....
It was packed as it was between Chrismas and New Year.
I recommend going there for a late lunch but not for dinner.

Waited an hour for our steaks that came out rare. Drinks never came and our water glasses remained empty. Asked for the manager and expressed our concern about the service and he said he would comp the meal and was sorry. Great, except 45 minutes after we sent the steaks back we still didn’t have our meal. We walked out with another table of 5. I have never done that- choose wisely - we will go back to LaVaca Argentina Steakhouse.

Excellent food, good service, great prices compared to the US. Loud popular music which made it hard to hear conversations at the table if that’s a concern.

We had a reservation, yet still had to wait half an hour for a table. The restaurant was extremely crowded, despite COVID, and the music was blaring. We thought we were coming for a fine-dining experience, but felt more like we were at a nightclub. Our appetizers took 45 minutes to arrive. Rather than wait endlessly for main courses (which we were never even asked if we wanted), we decided to go to another restaurant to eat. I doubt we will ever come back to Sonora Prime as we were so disappointed with this experience.

SP is so good. The food, ambiance, and service is top notch. I’ve been to PV more times than I can count and always make a point to eat here at least once. We have two kids (5 &8) and they love it as well. I like to have a few drinks with their chips and salsa and follow it up with the filet on the lava stone. I can’t wait to go back and recommend it to anyone headed to PV.
