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.

We have never been disappointed dining here and have brought many friends here. The creative latin cuisine is always very tasty, with wonderful flavors. The selection of tapas is really great for sharing.
The presentation of the dishes are very attractive. Service is very attentive.

We went to the restaurant as a family while the kids were home in college break go thanksgiving. The food was incredible and we really like the appetizers in particular: the gambas, calamari salad, and Brussels sprouts were some of our favorites. One of our favorite spots continued to be a perfect place for a family reunion with its lively yet intimate atmosphere. We left a happy family with our bellies full and content. Highly recommend, best Latin cuisine you can find in westchester!

The vegan food options were great. The food was very tasty which really surprised me. The eggplant meatballs exceeded my expectations. They were crunchy and the sauce was fresh.
The vegan paella had a variety of vegetables which was very nice.
I would definitely go back.

I love coming here for the fresh guacamole, fish tacos & mojitos. They really have the freshest mojitos in Westchester. I love coming here because the staff is always so friendly and the quality is always on point.

This restaurant is truly one of the best places in Westchester. The service is fantastic. We had Antonio as our server and he is so friendly, professional and knowledgable. We came in for restaurant week and the menu is probably the most generous and delicious out of most choices for HVRW. I will probably be back again before restaurant week is over. too good!

We had an amazing dinner at Sonora. Food was so good. However I had booked through Open table and mentioned it was for a birthday. We got the worst table in the restaurant smack in the middle of the dining room near the reception desk and no acknowledgement of our special occasion.

This was our first time to Sonora and it did not disappoint. The food was delicious- from the empanadas to the guacamole to the branzino. We were there on a Saturday night for a 7 o’clock reservation but were not seated until maybe 720. The kitchen was slammed but it did not matter because everything was wonderful. Go!

The food and service were, as always, wonderful and why we love to dine here. But in the future I will ask about live music and seating so we can sit more distant from the loudness. It’s great to hear live music, but it was so loud we were shouting and couldn’t hear our own conversation.

We had a great experience and Sonora. Service was relaxed and very friendly. Ambiance was perfect - busy enough for a nice lively atmosphere, but not so much as to spoil the experience.We had 3 appetizers all of which were fantastic - got cheese croquetta, eggplant "meat" balls (please try them), and the special cerviche. For appetizers we had octopus (wonderful) and the seafood paella. I prefer paella with the chorizo type that is more like a hard salami - this was made using the chorizo which is more like a fresh sausage. This is simply a personal preference, but I like how the spicy oil from the harder chorizo flavors the dish, and is more in keeping with what I've had when I've been to Spain. In summary - an excellent evening - we will definitely be back.

Very solid neighbor choice. The ambiance is charming especially in the summer on the porch. The food is always spot on. It's your choice to do the entrees or share small dishes. Wednesday night is a wine special. Always enjoy our meals here.

Disappointed. Food was blend, just ok. It.s a cute place but the food is just not worth it except for the dessert that was really good. (we had the key lime pie).

Another fabulous experience at Sonora! I came here to celebrate my friend's promotion and we couldn't have had a better time. The food was delicious. We split the eggplant meatballs, empanadas de manzana (my new favorite!!), coconut shrimp and ceviche. The staff was so friendly and was sure to make her feel special by adding a candle in her dessert.

My dinner at Sonora was wonderful as usual. I was starving and honestly could not have been at a better place ! The empanada de manzana and Israeli salad were a truly magnificent way to start off. I then capped off my meal with the delectable camarones y vieras: an amazing seafood focused dish and easily one of my favorites. Everything was on point, I wish I could be there everyday.

As usual the food and drinks were excellent. However they seemed short staffed and forgot our drinks. Also our waiter did not come over to our table for quite some time to take our order.

We arrived for our 7 pm reservation on time and were immediately seated. We waited for our guests to arraive for about 15 minutes. Wait staff was attentive and took our orders when we were ready. Excellent appetizers came out quickly and then we waited for an hour for our entrees to arrive. The restaurant got very busy and it seems that the kitchen was horribly backed up. It wasn't like anyone was having a different experience, they were just slow in getting the food out. I imagined Gordan Ramsey back there yelling at the red team that the diners were rebelling and wanted to just go home. Once the food came out, it was tasty although two of our party had the vegetable paella and found it bland and sought some kind of sauce to brighten it. Wait staff was confused, but finally got the idea and brought two sauces which helped an otherwise dull dish.

Sonora has been one of my favorite restaurants for years. I always bring my friends here who are from out of town. The mojitos were delicious as always. We shared the coconut shrimp, octopus, fish tacos and we splurged on the paella. The paella was outstanding! Can't wait to have it again.

In this little, unassuming town, you find this hip restaurant! I love the state of New York (I live more sount now and miss my Northeast). Friendly, great food (we ate a bit too much) nice wine selection. Vibrant. It was noisy, but it was Saturday night.

The food is consistently good and that’s why they have lasted so long. On a Saturday night it was very busy and extremely noisy in a room that absorbs no sound. The service was efficient, slightly rushed and I never had a chance to ask that they put a candle in the desert for my sisters birthday despite having indicated that it was a special occasion on the reservation. I will return but not on a Saturday night!
