Everything was fine, but disappointed that the menu had changed.
This is one of my favorite restaurants in Phoenix. Relaxing and yet great food!
Lovely, cozy restaurant. The food is excellent as is the service.
Cozy place with a lot of AZ history on walls. Friendly, watchful service with a smile. Fresh snapper was moist, flavorful on a bed of perfectly sautéed green beans, peppers and baby spinach. Shredded beef and sautéed onions filled a crunchy bun, served with skinny fries. The guacamole appetizer was served with three rustic salsas. Food was delicious and fresh. Very Good.
This was one of our favorite restaurants but it has lost its edge. The wait staff were polite but totally uninvolved. The food was good but the menu is limited. We won’t hurry back.
This is one of my favorite restaurants in Phoenix. I love to bring friends and family here to enjoy everything about it! Thankful it is located in Central Phoenix!
Normally excellent service. Made reservations, arrived on time. Had no tables. Said we could sit at table behind hostess. Slow service. Unfortunately had to listen to the hostesses chat about personal info during dinner. Waiter forgot to place appetizer order. Both burgers came out burnt. Lots of misses.
Ate out 4 nights in a row and this was my favorite ...outstanding pork chop and scalloped potatoes ...traffic at prime time was not good but worth enduring ...seemed to be a lot of locals there who knew where to go...Brussels sprout salad needed some kind of dressing but still 4/5 per better half
I can definitely see why they have a limit of two on the margarita chingon they are insanely delicious, with a bite that sneaks up on you. We started with the Queso Fundido which was great. The hands down best pork roast I’ve ever had is their red or green Chile. The trick is to get a mix of the two. It is simply amazing!!! The right blend of savory and spicy that makes this place my hands down favorite-spot this visit.
First visit... loved it.
I would recommend Sierra Bonita but I have to say that I didn't feel like there was value this time. I think I really only like sitting at the bar. The rest of the restaurant is a little underwhelming. So that's my recommendation - only sit at the bar. Absent that, it's missable. Sorry to say that because I do love the restaurant.
Took a friend there for lunch today and we did the street tacos off of the specials menu. Wonderful as usual. I think he will be stoping an again when he is back on my side of the valley.
Great restaurant! The food was really flavorful and was a great mix of Mexican flavor with steak and seafood.
Great server but disatointing food for the high price.
The service was great and the setting was nice. It was a bit pricier than I would have thought for the food selection, and the amount of food you get. Overall it was pretty good and we would probably come back if in the neighborhood.
This is my kind of restaurant. Cozy surroundings, a crowd buzz, excellent food, great service. The bacon wrapped shrimp were yummy, and my carne asada was cooked to perfection. Along with the shrimp we had a cup of azteca soup, a sierra bonita salad, my carne asada, chocolate torte for desert, one margarita and one 9 oz glass of wine. Total was $106, including tax but without tip. Without the booze it would have been $80 plus tax. I think that was a good value for such an excellent meal.
Definitely would return!
Always solid. Minor inconvenience due to a large party downstairs. Service 70% of normal —- unusual. Food excellent. Martinis about the best imaginable.
Not a place I would return too or recommend...at one time it might have been ... but not is sandwiched in between a bank , alley with homeless, fast food & low income housing.. menu limited for lunch and what they had pricey.. I tried a small soup , so spicey.. I could not touch.. salsa was green! And I can still taste it... not pleasant... with a the great restaurants in Phoenix & Scottsdale this is not one of them... but that is just my opinion...
We are from out of town and this was our last night out in Phoenix. Entrees came out almost excessively quick. Food was well prepared and savory. Service was attentive. However overall impression was of a “routine” neighborhood restaurant, not a destination which we had hoped to find.
I love this restaurant, charming, cozy, great food.
We had dinner on a weeknight at 6:30. The restaurant was busy but not too loud. We were seated in a cozy room with fireplace and 4 top tables. Loved the green chili mashed with buttermilk chicken. Server made good suggestion for a glass of red wine. Highly recommend.
Not in favor of the new limited higher priced menu.
I was so excited to dine here because I read great reviews. What a letdown! Pre-made guac, chicken that was probably cooked before I even ordered it. The service was a little TOO fast at what was supposed to be a nice restaurant. This made me think corners are being cut. The prices here were outrageous too. The online menu did not reflect reality. For dinner, you are stuck ordering expensive entrees that simply aren’t worth it. On the bright side, the atmosphere was nice. Want good food? Dine elsewhere! We won’t be going back.
Absolutely the best prime rib in town!
All was great but my entree was a bit too rich for me. Still, a fine place for a meal.
It’s always a pleasure to dine at Sierra Bonita. The food is consistently great, as is the service.
Awesome food. Great service!
We have always loved the Buttermilk Chicken. It used to be a half of a chicken bone in, but last night is was boneless. Was it a breast? I don’t know. And the sweet potatoes weren’t as spicy as they usually were. But still an excellent reason to drive 40 minutes for dinner. We will be back for the chicken. We have always had excellent service. You just can’t go wrong.
Great Service and an excellent dining experience for large group of out of town guests. A very memorable evening and will return.
Slow service initially and then the main course came out while our appetizers were still on the table. Done in 55 minutes - felt rushed
Very fun evening with good friends. Sierra Bonita always has exceptional service and great service. The house wines are also grteat!
We finally had dinner here, and we were not that impressed. Everything was just average, from the margaritas to the guacamole to the entrees.
A Phoenix gem. More people need to talk to more people about Sierra Bonita. A quiet, homey place with caring servers, a varied and intriguing menu.
Service marginal for this class of restaurant. Food quality and offering was perfect. Southwest style with chili flare. Improve servers experience and it will be there. Would return.
Decent food but not a great value. Probably won’t be back
Loved the azteca soup and the grouper special...so creative, so yummy.
Food was very good. Service was excellent! The wine list has some very nice wines but mainly on the higher end scale. Although we really enjoyed our meal, it is a bit pricey!! Quality is there but on value, I can't rate that part high!
We decided to take our good friends to a neighborhood jam Sierra Bonita grill. They both have the Thursday special and loved every bit of it. I tried something new on the menu I had not tried before and it was fantastic as usual. I think I’ve almost completed the entire menu and I try to different margarita last night, yummy.
Average service, food not New Mexican. More like fast food than prepared to order. I grew up in Albuquerque and this was NOT New Mexican.
