    With high expectations, they had was an accident and dropped our food. We understand it was an accident. No one came over to explain what happened, when replacement food would arrive. An hour passed, no communication. Then we gave up and asked for the bill, which took half an hour to get. It had items we never got, due to the accident, on the bill. They took them off. But it was an ordeal and no one ever expressed any regret over the incident and our food never arriving. Our poor waiter did not even know what was happening. The noise level is so loud that it is impossible to have a conversation at all.

    Reserving the restaurant was easy, the host was nice, we didn’t have to wait, the waiter was wonderful from suggestions to accommodations. His attitude was great, he had patience, he sang, laughed, and danced with us. The experience was remarkable

    Food was terrible. The best part of the meal was the veggies which is sad for a steak house. The steaks were terrible quality. It was so loud you could barely hear the person beside you. It’s a full miss especially for the price. Just go to Harry’s.

    Everything was delicious and service was top notch! My only "critique" would be to add a Spicy warning to the aguachile, it was delicious but so spicy it was almost impossible to eat for non-locals. Just a minor thing in an overall incredible visit.

    No tuvimos una buena experiencia en su totalidad en el restaurante. desde la falta de cubiertos y servilletas en toda la cena, las entradas que llegaron incompletas, las bebidas tardaban muchísimo. Lo más grave fue que pedimos un corte Cowboy termino medio que llegó praticamente crudo. Le pedimos al mesero de regresarlo para que quedara bien cocido y nos fue negado porque ya tenían muchas comandas. Nos trajeron una piedra caliente después de muchísimo tiempo y que obviamente no era suficiente para cocinar la carne al punto deseado. No pudimos comer el corte en su totalidad. Es un corte y es un restaurante caro donde no pueden suceder este tipo de cosas. Reclamamos con el gerente todo lo sucedido y lo único que hicieron fueron regalar 2 postres, éramos 6 personas. En un restaurante de calidad jamás le hubieran cobrado este platillo al cliente. pero no estuvieron interesados en brindar este servicio.

    The service was top notch. We actually witnessed the servers running. We ordered the cauliflower appetizer (and entire head drizzled in a cheese sauce), we shared the prime rib and added the grilled vegetables with eggplant dip (it was a bit disappointing as the "dip" was just a bit of puree under the veggies and couldn't taste any eggplant) and the side of garlic mushrooms. More than enough food and took some home for both of us to eat a lighter lunch. Unfortunately, the only downside was the noise. I had reserved and asked for a quieter table to celebrate a bday, and we were given two options....one beside the dj or the other under a speaker. Aside from being sat right away, when there was a lineup of people, I feel like the special requests aren't looked at and tables aren't actually reserved based on requests. Oh, and bring mosquito repellent. I got at least 10 bites on my lower legs and ankles, even though we weren't anywhere near foliage and it was 10pm. However, once again our server came to the rescue without me asking, with a bottle of repellent. Much appreciated! Other than that, it was the best meal we've had in Playa and we got there 2xmonth in the winter months. It cost $200 CAD with tip and we also had a beer & 2 glasses of wine so nothing out of the ordinary for back home. There was a weird thing we noticed on the bill and it was written in a few places....it said "tip is not mandatory". We found this strange, as at any other resto in PDC, the servers make sure to underline TIP NOT INCLUDED. We wanted to ask our server, but he was busy and communication was tough because of the speaker above, and not being able to hear the best. I asked 2 different friends in Playa who go there regularly, and they were shocked, saying that they know someone that works there and they definitely do not get paid a fare wage (one that doesn't need to rely on tips to cover basic needs/minimum wages), FYI so continue to tip well if the service deserves it :)

    I went to Sonora Grill Prime. The experience was good but the server missed to mention that alcoholic drinks were 2x1. We were celebrating a birthday and they did not provide a free dessert. They charged us for drinks as if they were not 2x1.There was no kids menu online so we ordered for them from the regular menu. When we got the check, we asked about the 2x1 and they tried to make up by giving us another drink. Kinda felt like they were trying to take advantage as we were not aware of their promotion.

    We had an amazing experience here during our family vacation. We came to celebrate my parents’ 35th anniversary and the staff went above and beyond to ensure we had a memorable and enjoyable evening full of love, incredibly hospitality, and delicious food. That cheesy bean dip and tortilla chips— I could eat it everyday! Loved every minute of our time here and would highly recommend.

    We hebben uitgebreid zitten eten bij Sonora op basis van hun beoordelingen op Google. Dusdanig uitgebreid dat we zelfs een fles wijn aangeboden kregen tijdens het eten. Het voedsel is uitstekend, vers en van uitstekende kwaliteit. De bediening is helaas, in de toeristische omgeving van Playa del Carmen, zo goed als alleen Spaanstalig. Maar onze ober deed zijn uiterste best, was uitermate hulpvaardig en daar over niets dan lof. De muziek staat alleen kei en keihard, iets dat er blijkbaar bij hoort. Van ons niet, dus we zijn op een zo stil mogelijk plekje gaan zitten. Het klapstuk kwam bij het einde; onze rekening. De baas kwam er voor langs en begon een verhaal over tips. We werden vriendelijk gemaand 20% te geven. Wij hadden zelf 10% in gedachten. Dus hij begon te onderhandelen. We waren in staat om gewoon niets te geven, maar wilden het personeel niet tekort doen. Maar in zo'n mooie en best prijzige gelegenheid gaan onderhandelen over een tip: de domper van de avond. De baas moet zijn ogen uit zijn hoofd schamen. Samenvatting: prima eten, vriendelijke bediening, veel te harde muziek en een niet passend management die gaat zeuren over tips. Zo jammer.

    We visited the restaurant at Playa del Carmen it was close to our hotel. The staff was very friendly and accommodating our server was helpful and made suggestions. The food was outstanding and so were the drinks, we had dessert and they were good but my cake was a bit too dry but it was tasty. Price wise it was pretty reasonable considering the quality, only reason I didn't give 5 stars on everything is because 1. It seemed that the server was over taxed had most of the tables for only 1 and 2. Because it was allowed for people to ask for money (panhandle) while you were eating 3. We had to wait a good amount of time when done for the check. All in all I would recommend this spot and would visit again if in the area again.

    Por tercera vez me han dejado mal. He ido a muchos Sonora de la Republica y en este he quedado mal para una cena de negocios, estuvo regular una cena con mi esposa y esta vez estuvo mal una cena con unos amigos extranjeros. Tardaron mucho en traer la bebida, en primera y segunda ronda se les tuvo que pedir por dos veces. La cerveza en lata en un restaurante de esta categoría no es de recibo. Faltaba alguna variedad de cerveza. Ninguna tipo ambar. El segundo tiempo que era un Tomahawk tardó mucho en venir y su sabor no era reseñable. No tenían disponible el servicio de entretenimiento de los niños. Hacía mucho calor en la mesa que nos ubicaron, los ventiladores estaban parados y a pesar de que se les dijo no los prendieron. Salimos tan transpirados del restaurante que no nos sentíamos cómodos y nos fuimos para casa. Este lugar no representa a la marca Sonora Grill.
