Three shrimp appetizer? Really who does that? If you dont have reservations they treat you as if you dont matter. Food was ok but they might as well serve the margaritas in a shot glass. What a rip off.

First time at Sonterra Innovative last weekend, March 14, 2015. My husband and I prepared ourselves for a busy and crowded Saturday night so we weren't expecting perfect service. That being said, we patiently waited 10-15 min to receive our drinks after the initial order was taken. My simple blended margarita came to me completely thawed. When the embarrassed waitress returned it to the bartender we actually heard him say, in annoyance, "Because it just sat there." The food came out, and the portions were a lot smaller than we had ever anticipated. I didn't know tortillas came in the mini, mini, mini size. But it looked good. Then we realized we didn't have utensils or napkins! Lol this place was struggling! We asked the waitress for forks when she brought my new margarita over. I couldn't believe it, but my margarita was missing the alcohol. I had had enough by that point. We still tried to be understanding, and they waived the margarita charge, but this place was a huge disappointment. Maybe they could try harder with the details on their busy nights. Like providing straws. Oh well, I can't wait to try other nice restaurants in Colorado Springs!

Hands down - one of the best in this region! The "carne asada" was incredibly delicious. Don't expect BIG portions. But if you value food quality, service and taste this is a must.

I've always enjoyed Salsa Brava, especially the one in Rockrimmon; the GM there, Scott, seems to do a magnificent job. However, after going to Sonterra Grill, I see that not all Managers are created equal. The Manager at Sonterra Grill...I think he was the GM, seems more interested in walking around trying to appear busy, than he is in genuine guest satisfaction. He stopped by our table during our most recent visit, and while he was there, we pointed out that two of our dishes were a bit on the cold side. He literally looked at our server, who was serving another table, interrupted him and told him to deal with this, as he had no time to take care of us. Then, we watched him belly up to the bar, and flirt with the female bartender; meanwhile, our food got colder, and we became more unhappy. There is a saying: you are only as strong as your weakest link - however, what do you do when your weakest link is your Manager? This guy belongs in slowly produced fast food, not casual dining.

10 of us and a baby came in for lunch for a co-workers birthday. The food and the service were both amazing. The hostess greeted and seated us right away. Sara was our server today and it could not have been any better. She handled our big party perfectly. She knew the menu well and gave great recommendations, she remembered everyone’s order, the beverages were always kept full, she was unobtrusive but very attentive, she handled our separate check requests with ease. A very nice experience!

this is so disappointing for me to have to write.... my husband and I loved going there for special dates and occasions, on December 23rd I made reservations for our visiting family and us at 6 pm.... we arrived and only about 2 tables were taken, yet the hostess tried to seat us at a small table right in front of the door.... we declined and asked for a different seat not right in the entrance where cold wind would blow in everytime someone came in.... so she sat us one table over.... just ready to sit and eat we said whatever, we sat at that table with no greetings or "I'll be right with you's" for about 30 minutes, a table that got there 10 minutes after us got drinks before us and got their order taken before us, we were actually getting up and putting our coats on to go to the sushi place two places down, when Abby walked up to our table, acted as if we hadn't been waiting, for some freaking drinks at least, 30 minutes for her to make her grand appearance. We weren't the sweetest customers I'm sure but you can't blame us when we were already so patient. so we finally get our drinks and some chips, then place our orders, food came out fast as always and looked perfect, but the waitress "Abby" forgot to bring my father in law his pico, she put my order in as something completely different from what I ordered, thank god the kitchen staff knows how to do their job because they fixed it really fast after I brought it to her attention. After all that went wrong with our visit we were charged full price.... it all just irks me since I was a server for almost 3 years.... I would never treat a table like she treated ours.....

INCREDIBLE. Excellent food (and I mean EXCELLENT, especially the shrimp and lobster enchiladas) warm, charming atmosphere, very friendly staff, clean bathrooms. Best restaurant in Colorado Springs for the money, hands down. Go.

Don't order the chile relleno, its awful. On the other hand, seafood enchiladas are great.
