Sorrento Ristorante Italiano Ratings and Reviews
Had a wonderful experience. I was hosting a group of 5 retirees and former coworkers. We were seated in the wine room. Everyone was impressed with the restaurant - the room - the food - and the service. Our waiter Edgar was terrific and very attentive to our needs. I truly recommend Sorrento's. Have been there numerous times before. Great menu selections and the kitchen does a wonderful job with all.
We always hesitate to eat out on a holiday for many reasons - small, fixed menus, overcrowding, waiting time, etc. but we know that we can always count on Sorrento, no matter what the day or time of year. We were there for Easter and although they did have a special Easter menu, it was very extensive and it was a la carte. So much better than a fixed "choose this or that, choose from 3 courses for x amount of dollars. The food is always amazing and the service is always beyond wonderful. The atmosphere is always lovely and having live music in the background adds to the ambiance. We have eaten at many fine dining restaurants in Houston, especially as new ones come on board but always go back to Sorrento because we know they will never fail us. The owner is very caring and takes time to visit tables and really listens to comments about the restaurant, the food, etc. The manager, who has become dear to us, is one of the many reasons we continue to go back to the restaurant. His work is exemplary. All the waiters, not just the one waiting on us, stop to see how we are doing, how the food is, adjust napkins, ask about drinks, and the overall impression is, that they all work so well as a team and all care about their customers. I truly believe they all know the magic is repeat business and they all work on that very hard.
A place to be reminded how Europe lives and eats. Never hurried to clear you out after you have eaten and the staff is wonderful. They recommend wine or food only when asked and if you like a dish but one something left out it is not a problem. I discovered it by accident one day at lunch and have been back every chance I get. Any celebration for a friend I take them there to experience good food, and lovely service.
Once again, Sorrento hits a home run. We celebrated a birthday with great cuisine, fantastic wine, and service beyond belief.
This has become a "Must Experience" for every Houstonian and their out-of-town guests. Incredible and enjoyable. I would give it 15 stars if I could
It was our first time dining at Sorrento. We had a reservation for 6 people and they seated us in a small room off the main dining room which made us feel special. The service was very friendly, helpful, and attentive. The food was wonderful - a wide range of Italian dishes, both classics and fun twists on traditional. The portions are generous. We'll definitely go back.
You can not beat Sorrento for a wonderful Sunday Brunch. First of all, their brunch special is an incredible value. Second, you get some of the best cuisine Houston has to offer.
My favorite soup in the State of Texas is their butternut squash soup. The taste is out of this world.
I had the filet mignon which was perfectly cooked medium rare. I normally have the Sea Bass or Lamb. All good.
Topped off with creme brulee and a spoon full of my wife's bread pudding. A wonderful coffee after and I was done. Perfect meal with a wonderful atmosphere and world class service. I love this place.
Delicious and beautiful restaurant! My salad, the arugula and fig, was great and I could eat it every day. My husband enjoyed his Caesar and pronounced it excellent (and he has had a lot of Caesars). I had the mushroom raviolo and it was as good. My husband loved the pappardelle alfredo with the goat cheese stuffed chicken. The wine by the glass is a generous pour. A small vodka and tonic was pricey at $12 (our only complaint). So stick to wine! As wonderful as the food was, the additional star was the pianist. She is worth the trip. Her selections wonderfully complimented the elegant atmosphere of this very fine restaurant. She plays flawlessly and with just the right noise level. The music was a huge plus where in many restaurants, it's a negative. Kudos to her and we will definitely return to this lovely place.
Went for Valentine's Day lunch and got the Executive Lunch fixed price menu. I had the steak frites and my husband got the salmon. Both entrees were wonderful. The price for the Executive Lunch makes it an outstanding value. Service was just right - friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Highly recommend.
All was great till we got an unexpected bill. Brunch was $35/person and you could have any entree on the menu plus salad/soup & desert. A great brunch. Except that the waiter told us the specials and did not explain that they were not "entrees". When that happened all of a sudden everything was a la carte. Since two of four took the special it added a lot to the bill. The bill should have been $195 plus tax & tip. It was $$266 plus tax & tip. The manager gave us a "bargain" and made the bill 223 plus tax & tip. Still overcharging by $28 plus tax.
Another excellent dining experience: wonderful selection of Italian dishes, very attentive service. Veal medallions, mushroom raviolo and lobster bisque were delicious! As are the varied fresh bread basket and desserts. Upscale old world ambiance with live piano music. Easy to talk without straining. Not inexpensive but worth it for a special occasion.
