I absolutely love this place. The service was outstanding and the food hit the spot. I came here for Tango night and it was fantastic. I can't wait for another event. Until then I'll keep coming to the unbeatable happy hour :)

"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

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.
