About Sierra Bonita Grill

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 30 people.

Sierra Bonita Grill is, and remains, one of my favorite places, so it pains me to "ding" them this one time. I think we waited (uncharacteristically) a little too long for our initial service. Don't know if this is the servers fault or not. My meal was the beef tenderloin special, and I thought it was superb. However my wife had the halibut, which she thought was overcooked, having to use a knife a couple of times. She almost always has the "Catch" when it is halibut, and has never been disappointed before. The other thing that perturbs me, which may or may not be the restaurant's fault, is that OpenTable would only let us have reservations at 430 PM; the next available time slot was 800 PM; too late for us. Yes, it was Valentines Day, and I waited till the day before, my bad. But I then sat in our booth for over an hour, watching a half dozen tables or more remain unoccupied for the entire time we were there, including when we left after 600 PM, which is when we would have preferred to have dined. Don't know who that is on, just saying it was annoying.

To reiterate, this has been one of our favorite places. We are about to move, and not being able to experience this dining choice is one of the more heartbreaking aspects of our new lifestyle. If at all possible, we will try hard to come back in the future when we are in town.

We went with friends for lunch before going to the Heard Museum. This is a truly wonderful place for brunch. Good coffee and drinks. Blue corn hot cakes are fantastic- flavorful and light, served with excellent syrup and strawberry butter. Others in our party were very impressed with enchiladas and eggs. Reasonable prices and a lovely ambiance. Highly recommended.

Menu is wonderful. Hard to pick what you want because it all looks good. I did pork tenderloin and it was so very good. Did fried pork appetizer. Very tasty. Nice merlot to blend it all together. Server was top notch. Ambiance was laid back and chilled. This was Birthday dinner for me and it was just perfect.

Great place for happy hour, casual meal or special occasion. Food is authentic and delicious . Yummy signature cocktails. Service is always top notch. Atmosphere is warm and welcoming.
Plans this time were happy hour in the bar with dinner reservations in the dining room. We were comfortable in the bar and our server was outstanding.....so we continued with our dinner in the bar. Wonderful, relaxing evening for us and our out of town guests.

Stopped in for lunch since I have not been in for a while. As usual the food was outstanding! I had a couple of appetizers, my wife and mother-in-law split a salad and the fish special. There was nothing left to take home. Hope to get back again soon...

Sierra Bonita is a great place to stop for lunch. They have daily lunch specials as well as seasonal craft beers. The service is friendly and impeccable. The wine list is limited but they have a rotating list of interesting choices.

had a Saturday lunch at Sierra Bonita a few days ago. Service was excellent! The food was tasty... stacked enchiladas, corn pancakes, and Cowboy hash were all up to par. Had expected to be able to order of either brunch or lunch menu, but only brunch was available.

One of our go to spots. It’s a cross city drive so we only get there every other month or so. Food is always awesome and creative. They have a small but wonderful wine list and an excellent selection of spirits including a great selection of top notch tequilas. Great staff and ambiance. A hidden gem.

I’ve been a long time fan of Sierra Bonita Grill. I love everything about it. Every item on the menu is so delicious, never needs added salt or pepper. Great margaritas & other cocktails! I drank gin & tonic on Sunday & they were very good! My only complaint is that a couple of my favorite dishes are no longer on the menu. The green corn tamale with green chili pork was always fantastic. Not sure why they would remove it. Other than that, this place is always a fantastic choice!

I have lived in the valley my entire life and am a connoisseur of Mexican food. I can't believe I missed this place! I would never usually rate a place top-of-the-line in all categories, but they made it really hard not to. I wasn't there to rate the place, but just took a chance on a reservation due to the limited availability at other restaurants on New Years weekend. I was given fair warning on how spicy my order of stacked enchiladas would be. I went for it anyway and was blown away at the flavorful spiciness of the dish. The Hatch green chili was dominant, delicious and desirable. My girlfriend ordered the fresh catch, being grouper, and the fish could not have been prepared any better. It was pleasantly flaky on the inside and perfectly crisp on the outside. The polenta was one of a kind and quite an accompaniment. My hat's off to Sierra Bonita!

This was our fourth time at Sierra Bonita...once for lunch and three dinners....and it has always been excellent. We always get the fish special when available and this time it was the grouper. Wonderful portion of perfectly cooked fish with a beautiful presentation and, a reasonable price. The service is paced perfectly. We have made a vow to go there more frequently in spite of the drive.

Haven’t been to Phoenix for awhile and when we made our plans we came back to one of our previous favorites..it didn’t disappoint! Fantastic starting cocktails, followed by delicious appetizers and entree and deserts were great. Our meal favorites were queso fundido con chorizo, the pork belly on polenta and the guacamole. I had the fish tacos, son had the cowboy steak and husband had the pulled pork. The buttermilk pie was really enjoyed by my son and husband as I was way too full to even have a bite! A definite favorite place to visit!

Attractive southwestern decor; sever was fast, friendly and attentive; parking was difficult as have minimal slots when very busy; entrance is rather tight with traffic. Food was mixed--Azteca and Albongis soups were extremely spicy with heavy chipotle seasoning; mahi tacos were very tasty but came swimming in a white liquid (had to get several dry tortillas and transfered ingredients to these in order to eat the tacos), the buttermilk fried chicken was ok but on small side and came atop a huge pile of yummy sweet potato mash. Overall, OK but wouldn't rush back.

Dined here upon recommendation of local friends. We were seated immediately given water and menus. We sat for awhile...a waiter finally noticed us, asked if we had ordered...sincerely apologized for the wait and comped us dessert. The rest of the service was excellent... friendly and prompt. The menu was varied with small plates, salads and entrees. I'd call it modern Souhwest. We shared the charred ceaser which was more than enough for two people. The pork tenderloin with coffee and chocolate rub was cooked to perfection as were the veggies. My husband had the mahi mahi fish tacos which had large, nicely seared hunks of fish with delicious spiced slaw and sides. Would definitely return to try other interesting food options.
