The Sierra Bonita Grill is named after the historic Sierra Bonita Ranch in South Eastern Arizona. Founded by Henry Hooker in 1872, the Sierra Bonita Ranch was known for it’s hospitality and innovative ranching methods. We would like to celebrate the spirit represented by Mr. Hooker and other pioneer ranches throughout Arizona with our restaurant and hope to continue the tradition of great food and hospitality. Our menu reflects the hearty cooking style of Southern Arizona ranches, many of which were started by Spanish and Mexican families. We will continue to explore the ongoing Mexican and Latin influences on this area’s culture and food. Patio seating available to accommodate 24 people.

Great spot for a date night or special occasion. Food is on the pricey side, but worth the cost of the meal. The Green Chilie Mac and Cheese is absolutely a must try!

We went this week 10/9/2019.
Service was extremely poor. Took 10 minutes for someone to come to our table. The hostess was the only one that recognized someone hadn’t been to our table. The food was sub par. I ordered the Sierra salad and bacon wrapped shrimp. The bacon on the shrimp was so over cooked you didn’t even taste the shrimp, it was dark dark brown. Would not recommend. Also the website menu does not reflect the menu at the restaurant. They changed it on monday.

I love the food here, though I’m still disappointed about the menu changes that reduced the choices. There used to be so many great choices of ‘regular’ items with a Southwestern flair and now the center of the menu is devoted to big meat. I don’t typically want a major-meat choice, which limits my options. I end up getting the same thing every time, which is a favorite (carne asada), but that doesn’t make it as interesting to go here. My husband got steak as a fall-back choice, but that wasn’t really what he wanted, either. Our adult son ordered off the kid’s menu. We will definitely go back, but not often. It’s great for a single visit.

The food and service was outstanding. A bit pricey but not too bad. Only disappointment was that the booth seating was practically worn through, needed to be replaced years ago

Everything we ordered tasted great, service was super. But, it was too noisy to be enjoyable and the limited menu was disappointing.

Would be better not to come at the dinner rush. Staff was overwhelmed. Had to wait 15 minutes just to be acknowledged at the table. Then another 5 to get water, and 10 more for a cocktail. They sandwiched us between two large parties. So the noise level was overwhelming. You literally had to yell to be heard by the person right across the table from you. The food on the other hand was incredible. Hoppers Poppers still the BEST! The bacon wrapped shrimp perfect. The Mrs. had the Grouper special. To die for. I had the NY. Cooked perfectly, and great flavor.

We got to the restaurant and it was CLOSED. No sign, nothing. Only regular hours so they should have been open.
We were on vacation so had to scramble to find something else. SHAME on ALL of you

The margaritas are great! The food very good although can be pricey. Fabric on seats in booth was wearing out and the wood on the table was chipped off. An update to some of the interior is needed especially with the prices.

This wonderful dining establishment never disappoints. Great food, outstanding Southwest atmosphere and exceedingly friendly employees. Stacy was our waiter during our last visit and he was simply wonderful.
If you’re looking for a quiet, intimate evening and looking for uniquely prepared southwestern cuisine, check out Sierra Bonita.

We always enjoy Sierra Bonita and Aron, our server did a beautiful job pacing our meal and making sure we were satisfied. We started with the guacamole and chips. I could make a meal of this....it's wonderful. My husband had the salmon which was the catch of the day. The serving was definitely man sized and he enjoyed it. I ordered the southwest cobb and it was good. We'll be back.

My wife and I were on a weekend get away to Phoenix. We made Friday night dinner reservations at Sierra Bonita Grill. We arrived and were greeted by the hostess, who showed us to our table. Our server, #88, came over, introduced himself and took our drink order. He returned with our drinks and water. He proceeded to take our meal order which came out very quickly. During the meal, our server inquired as to how everything was going. As we finished our meal, I started to look for him. After waiting 17 minutes, I asked the bartender who was now clearing and covering tables if she would get us our check. When she returned, I asked her where our server had gone. She said, "he left, he had a long shift and went home". No coffee, no desert and no tip. I paid the bill and we left. We went to this restaurant at the recommendation of Your AAA Magazine, Jan/Feb 2019 issue by Molly Clark, Your Travel, CityScape: Phoenix. Not a way to run a restaurant, when a server just leaves and makes his tables look sit and wait.
More than likely, we will not return.

Maybe it was due to the fact that we visited on a Sunday evening, our first steak was sent back, because it was over-cooked, dry and lacked flavor. We changed to the sirloin, it was mediocre, at best. Typically, a manager would visit the table in a situation like this. The waiter stated that he spoke with the manager, and they would be so kind as to serve us a replacement...what? Of course!
The wine had floating spots that looked like oil slicks. I wish I could attach the pic. They charge $2.50 to split a $16 wedge salad for you.
We ate our side dish, while we waited for our entree (the replacement steak) absolutely no discount, offer for dessert, and hardly any concern shown by staff.
I waited for my waiter to pick up my payment after the check was dropped, I finally went to the bartender to pay. I asked the bartender if I could speak with the manager, and was informed that he had left an hour prior. I'm not quite sure if he was actually there, at all.
Too bad, this place was highly recommended by a friend...some friend! Lol, just kidding.
