Sorrento Ristorante Italiano Ratings and Reviews
We were given a delightful dining experience during Houston Restaurant Week at Sorrentos. The waiter was very responsive and dedicated to making sure we were all taken care of. The food was absolutely fantastic and my whole family enjoyed a pleasurable get-together, able to visit together in an enjoyable venue!
Food was amazing. I'm sad to say that the service was very bad. I've heard so many great things about this place though that I'll just chaulk it up to the Server having a bad night. I don't want to go on a rant about why the service was so bad but I promise it was. Luckily the food made up for it and I still left a great tip!
Everything was wonderful - especially sitting in the atrium where we could converse. The ambiance and service were outstanding and the food beautifully presented. The fig salad was yummy but the sauce for my lobster & arugula tortelloni needed some flavor boosting. Adding grated parmesan helped. We'll try other options on the well-constructed menu next time.
We always enjoy Sorrento, excellent food, attentive service and an outstanding bread tray. The Houston Restaurant Weeks brunch menu exceeded all expectations. We had Raul as our waiter for the second consecutive time. I will be sure to request a table in his section on the next visit.
The black truffle risotto here is incredible. Seriously the best risotto I've ever had. I drive to Houston (from Austin) just to order it.
The mushroom and sage raviolo and the beef carpaccio were also very good.
I like the pianist that plays during brunch and hearing all the champagne corks being popped because I know their bubbles are fresh!
The selected dinner items were outstanding, however, the dressing used on their Caesar salad that evening did not meet the standards expected from this restaurant. There may have been an unusual number of this particular salad ordered that evening, and their staff may not have been able to maintain the pace of the demand. The dressing was basically mayo tossed with the salad greens, capers and croutons. I will not order that particular item from their menu again.
Food was fair. When we were first seated there were shards of glass (probably from a broken wine glass) on the table and chairs. My wife received a minor cut on her finger; only after we demanded to be reseated that we received another table; neither the waiter or manager made any attempt to seriously apologize or even offer a bandaid for my wife's bleeding finger. Not in keeping with a high end restaurant.
Wow! Best kept secret in Houston. Where else can you have impeccable service and a 3 course gourmet lunch for $24.95??? UTSD Chairs luncheon here today and it was perfect! We had the wine room that so pretty. I had salad, seared tuna with lump crab, risotto with a lemon and caper sauce and a Chocolate soufflé for dessert. Yum! My husband and I have also gone here for our anniversary. Romantic in the evening with music.
Instead of the normal "stick to the brunch menu" they offer entries on the regular menu on a great package deal with salad or soup, entry from the menu, and dessert at a great price. There was a party of women celebrating a birthday and they were a little loud (in a reserved way). We understood and did not mention it to anyone but our waiter was quite aware of the surroundings and politely asked us if he could move us to a more secluded location. Nice to have professional waiters - some there since the start of the restaurant.
Well where do I start. They just brought my desert(i am still in the restaurant) and a candle and they said “Happy Anniversary” what a professionalism. They waited till the end until we ordered a desert. Food was great. Alex is a great server. This place has live piano player that adds a very romantic mood to the dinner. This is the best place I have been in around Houston area. I will make a tradition to come here for special occasions.
Two of our party of three were violently ill after eating here, we believe the fois gras as they shared that dish. Tried contacting them via their website and email but they did not respond. Reported to Harris County Public Health
This used to be one of our recommended Italian restaurants but would not go back
The staff was amazing!! Everything was brought to us at the perfect time. We weren't bothered at all. My date and i were left to enjoy great conversation with one another while the staff took care of our every need. The waiter was so polite (as was all the staff). The waiter asked us our reason for the evening before saying that it seemed as though we were celebrating something special. After i had told him it was a much anticipated first date he came out with this amazing dessert. 6 out of 5 stars for this place. Best meal experience durring a date hands down! Thank you all staff that was present the night of july 3rd 2017!!
One of the best brunch meals I've ever had. The filets were AMAZING. I'd put them up against any restaurant. I ordered a mushroom omelet and it was the second best one I've ever had (the best had crabmeat, so it's not a fair comparison). The service was top notch. I HIGHLY recommend this place.
The food was very good. The service was even better. They waited to bring me the check until I asked for it, which allowed me to hang out with my date for over an hour after we had finished eating. It was very enjoyable for both of us. Highly recommend this place. When I made my reservation through Open Table, I requested a secluded table for a romantic dinner, and that's what I got.
This is one of our favorite date night places. It's quiet enough that you can have a conversation and not feel like you're yelling at one another. The food is amazing. We love the torchetti and spicy sausage dish and the beef short rib is delicious. The service is always attentive but not intrusive. We would recommend this restaurant to any of our friends and family.
Lord of the flies. We ordered the tableside risotto and when our waiter opened the cheese wheel to pour the risotto in it was full of fruit flies. Then the rest of the evening we were strafed by them. Crawling on the table, buzzing our heads, dive bombing into our wine. We won't be back ever.
