The food at Sonora was delicious. They had a set menu for Easter with many choices and bottomless mimosas. The ambiance and service was also great.

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.

Sonora has been around for a long time, and with good reason. Chef Palomino does amazing things with South American and Spanish dishes, with the focus being on seafood. Usually even the best seafood places give you a bad meal now and then. Sonora, and...More

Wow - what a great little spot for incredible food. The trickier dishes, such as Mexico-Camarones Y Vieras, are not as well prepared mid-week. But this dish in particular is heavenly on the weekends.

Our favorite place for a great meal. The Friday evening happy hour menu in the bar is a great casual evening.

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.
