I love Sonoritas for the group of people that I bring about every two weeks. It is easy to make a reservation and we are always greeted with a smile and a table set aside for us. John is a great waiter who remembers our likes and dislikes.

The restaurant itself is busy and fun. We got our drinks quickly, however the food took a long time to come. I overhead a waiter say that take out orders were prioritized before sit in orders, which didn't make a lot of sense to me.

When the food did come, it was great. I'd recommend.

I wanted to love this place but the tacos were bland and the meat used had copious amounts of fat, it just wasn’t a pleasant flavor experience.

The service and food are both great! John has been our waiter a few times, and he has impressed me and my friends with his attentiveness and friendliness. Actually everyone who works there, works as if it is their own place. They are casual and friendly without sacrificing service. Shrimp tacos and their home-made chips are my favorites.

The prime shrimp taco and carnitas taco are delicious. The margaritas are a bit too sweet, although they are strong. Get the churros with nutella!

I had a delicious dinner here Wednesday evening with two of my friends! We thoroughly enjoyed all the food. We had the sangria, tortilla soup, shrimp burrito, and carne asada bowl with rice added. Everything was awesome! My friend doesn’t like sour cream or mayo and the server was very attentive in making sure it wasn’t in any of her food.
We also enjoyed munching on the spicy tortilla chips and salsa while waiting for our food. They have a really pretty patio where it’s nice to sit and people watch on Sawtelle. We’ll definitely be back soon!

Food was very delicious and flavorful. It’s a mix of traditional and modern together. The only thing disappointing was the service it would take 15 minutes each time in order to get another drink, order food, etc. I would try it out again and maybe sit inside instead of the patio.

This restaurant came highly rated, but it's hard to know what all the fuss is about. The ambiance was pleasant and the overall intentions of the place seem good, but the service was mixed: some servers were highly attentive; others seemed not to care. Our margaritas were weirdly lukewarm and undericed, whereas the food was delivered late and cold. We asked to have it refired, and it still came back only warm. (It didn't help that the a.c. was blasting down so hard that my hair was literally blowing in the wind.) The guacamole was good, but the tacos were surprisingly bland, without any strong flavors. Not unpleasant if you find yourself on Sawtelle, but I wouldn't go out of my way again for this one.

Wasn’t sure what to expect..but was very impressed by the food and the friendly service. Gourmet Mexican cuisine in a casual environment. The quacomole drizzled with pistachio nuts and chips were amazing along with the hibiscus margaritas. Highly recommend the chopped salad and taco samplers. We’ll be back soon.

We found this little and modern Mexican taco place few months ago, in the middle of a hundreds of Asian restaurants. Their menu looks so good and I literally wanted to try everything on it, I ordered the Shrimp Taco and the Elote and my boyfriend had the Skirt Steak, OMG!!!!!
We also got the Churro Volcano (WITH NUTELLA) and a few Margaritas, everything was FANTASTIC!
I will definitely be back!!!!

Ps, there's a parking lot behind the restaurant.. Extra points!

Great food and lots of choices. From the seasoned chips to the guacamole, the food was great. Recommend the Tortilla soup, comes with a little kick, which is a perfect spice. Rib eye taco and spicy shrimp taco are excellent. Can't wait to go back!
