Can't say enough good things about Sorrento! Our waiter Jorge was outstanding. It's a beautiful restaurant and very romantic. Our food was phenomenal. I ordered the Lobster Tortellini and my dining partner ordered the Gnocchi with Shrimp Spiedini. I will definitely be going back. Thanks Open Table for the recommendation.

We were a party of 4 on New Year's Eve. We were rushed through our meal despite our repeated requests to slow down the pace. It's a shame that a restaurant as good as Sorrento does not realize the damage that they do to their reputation by treating customers in such a way. Food was as expected except for the pasta dish which was mushy.

Very pleasant dining experience, as usual . One criticism: There was a telephone on the wall about 5 feet from our table (near the bar area). The volume on the ring tone was turned up high. Thus, every time the phone rang it, it made a loud and annoying ring sound that would momentarily distract us from our otherwise enjoyable dining experience. In the future, I would suggest turning down the ring tone on that particular phone during peak lunch and dinner hours. I presume that there is at least one other phone in the restaurant (perhaps near the hostess station in the lobby of the restaurant) where calls can be received during the peak hours. Otherwise, Sorrento is and remains one of our favorite restaurants in the Montrose area.

Asked for a quiet table for conversation and the table we were given worked. Still close enough to the piano to enjoy the music. Service was excellent, the server was helpful with suggestions for food and wine. The menu had many interesting options and the food was very tasty. Highly recommended for a nice evening with friends.

We enjoyed lunch at this lovely restaurant a few days after Christmas. The restaurant was not crowded so we were able to carry on a conversation. The service was attentive, while not overbearing. The food was delicious, presentation was attractive, and the experience was most enjoyable. Would definitely return to this delightful spot.

Service from the host to bread server, water refills and waiter were all great. The menu is very authentic to what you see at restaurants in Sorrento, Italy and the food was incredible! The tiramisu for dessert was an amazing way to finish the meal.

We went with friends to celebrate Christmas eve 2016. We usually have a wonderful time at Sorento. This time the noise level was extremely loud and annoying making conversation impossible. When we sat down there was a large family with children at the bar carrying on conversations at the top of their voices punctuated by screaming laughter. They were eventually seated next to us at a very large put together table for the 10 or 12 of them and the noise level became even louder. To add insult to injury, as diners and staff were trying to squeeze their way around the large table they were not bumping one of my guest's chair over and over again. Not the experience we expect at Sorento.

We were seated at a table for 5 people when our group consisted of 6 adults and a small child. We were in a back room where it was not so noisy and even though the ambience was not quite as nice as the front, it was easier to talk. The service was very slow and they only offered some bread once. The waiter seemed offended when I asked if we could have some menus. The food was ok but nothing special. No one asked how everything was until we were leaving. We were celebrating a birthday which I had noted when making the reservation and there was no acknowledgement at all. I don't think I will ever go back.

We are never disappointed in this place. They are very attentive, great food and the presentations are spectacular. We had reservations at noon and called to add two more family members. Table was perfect and cannot say enough about the quality of food. This place rocks.

We tried Sorento for the first time as a special dinner for our eldest daughter before heading to see the Houston Symphony. Any time a restaurant has a chef's tasting, or the like, we like to get that because it gives a good idea of the different varieties of food they have there. We were certainly not disappointed! Everything was just delicious! The only negative we found was that, as part of a 5-course meal, the fish dish was a bit heavy to go with everything else too.
Our particular waiter seemed a bit out of place, however, with his strange accent in the way he tried to say the names of the dishes; he shuffled his feet when he walked; and had a slightly unkempt appearance for a place of this caliber. But overall, most excellent! Definitely will be going back.

The food failed to rise to the occasion ie roasted garlic barely warm. No spoon for soup. No balsamic vinegar for caprese. Too salty gnocchi and shrimp dish.
True Italian should be light and fresh not heavy and salty.
Bread should be served warm w olive oil n vinegar.
Impeccable service and lovely ambiance made up for lacklusterish food.

El ambiente está totalmente pasado de moda, la comida de regular a mala, recetas muy viejas y la preparación deficiente.
Los meseros son serviciales, pero muy ruidosos (lo que más nos molestó es el escándalo cuando meten los cubiertos a los cajones).
