No Reason to Return.
I love downtown and we had passed by this place many times and vowed to stop in. I have seen people out on their patio over and over again, so I figured it must be good. We went for dinner and were seated promptly. The place was packed, so good thing we had reservations. We ordered margaritas which took quite a while to get. The food was not as I imagined. For the price ($19) I figured it would be something pretty special, but the shrimp and lobster enchiladas had no sauce and were like frozen seafood warmed up in some tortillas. I was not impressed. The rice was barely warm. Some people say that you should try a place a few times before you give up. Nope, if I go and and spend $60 on a meal I want something that at least satisfies. I am a large supporter of privately owned restaurants, but On The Border would get my vote over this place any day.
Excellent coconut shrimp.
Great food and great service.. Very clean and very nice setting for a date.. All the ingredents were fresh and tasty especially loveed the artichocke with dippining sauce.. so hard to find on any ones menus now a days
The Sonterra has excellent, interesting cuisine. The entres were great and the bananas foster in particular was fantastic (though pricey)--and I wish we had tried their fresh made guacamole. The ambiance is upscale yet warm and the staff is friendly. However, I found the service to be a bit slow, particularly with drink orders. Would still go back; I'm hoping the sluggish service was the exception and not the rule.
