Updated Review - Sonora Cafe

xyz | Feb 10, 200301:07 PM     1

Pluses: No reservations required on a Sat. night. Decent ambiance. Friendly and attentive wait-staff.

Minuses: Prices slightly on the expensive side (dishes $22-30).

Overall: My meal, stripped bass (?), was overwhelmed by the accompanying "chili" sauce. The two did not seem to match in flavors. The warm seafood salad was bland - nothing special - but included huge chunks of seafood. Hands down the best meal of the night was the seared ahi tuna. The tuna was tender and tasty, having been soaked in a great marinade. I would definitely return just for the tuna. The orange creme brulee was decent as well. Not too sweet and pretty robust in citrus flavor.
