"Never judge a book by its cover" rings so true in this instance. What a wonderful meal! We grabbed an Uber and headed into the unassuming business on a very quiet street. Even though we had a rather late Friday night reservation (9:15P), Mauricio was...More

Two mature couples here out for a very nice evening. For starters we enjoyed the mild guacamole (prepared at the table for show) and roasted cauliflower. Great chips that were light, warm and fresh. Red sangria was fruity and sweet. Two of us loved the...More

4 of us dined and everything was outstanding. I had the pollo relleno which was great. The only not outstanding dish was the Apple Crisp for dessert-the topping was lackluster and

My family took me to Sonora for Mother's Day. The food, service and atmosphere were absolutely lovely. A few small picky things - my branzino had some bones, my son's chicken was a bit boring, and my spicy margarita had pepper flakes on the outside...More

Wow, the food here is some of the best I've ever had. Creative and delicious offerings are contrasted with a front-of-the-house staff that would clearly be someplace else. Too bad, because the chef/owner know quality. Too bad they don't know how to hire a hostess/manager.

Since Rafael Palomino—Sonora’s Executive Chef and Proprietor—opened the doors to this, his flagship Latin-fusion restaurant, he has received accolades from a broad customer base, including an “Excellent” from the New York Times. This creative, Colombian-born (Queens-raised) chef and author of five cookbooks, has since opened 8 more restaurants that span three states (New York, Connecticut and Pennsylvania). Sonora, like Palomino’s other restaurants, boasts excellent service and mouth-watering dishes, paired with an extensive wine list and cocktail offerings. In addition to impeccable service and delicious dishes, Sonora’s two-story home offers guests the possibility of having a custom-designed and catered on-site private party, for any occasion, from 12 to 110 people.
