We really enjoyed our meal here. The service was good and the ambiance was very nice, quiet, and romantic.

Good food and nice ambiance
We visited during their Jazz Night - Errol Fisher is a good crooner. The food was excellent as usual - this is the first time I'd gone for dinner although I had been to lunch many times. We had the calamari, parsnip soup, veal scaloppini and lamb sirloin - all nicely done. We had ordered grilled calamari but it came out fried, which was fine with us, tasted just as good and not very greasy. Lamb sirloin came out medium instead of medium rare but again tasted good and tender so even though the waiter offered to take it back, I didn't send it back. Bread pudding and flourless chocolate cake were both superb. I wrote a blog post on the bread pudding on my food blog: http://www.foodsparks.blogspot.ca. You can check it out for a photol

I took my boyfriend to Sorrel
I took my boyfriend to Sorrel for his Birthday. We couldn't get into the restaurant that I had first chosen so Sorrel was a last minute decision but definitely a good one.
The tables were candle lit and the room had a warm and romantic feel.
The choice of appetizers was impressive and hard to make a decision. He had the Grilled Calamari and I had the Bison Carpaccio which was amazing. For our main course I chose the linguini with clams which was good, not the best I have had but the pasta was very nice. He had the Hanger Steak which was cooked to perfection. The wine was great and after telling our waiter that we were celebrating a Birthday he brought out a delicious Crème Caramel with a candle. Perfect end to a perfect night.

A great restaurant.
We found the Sorrel an excellent choice for Sunday brunch. The staff was excellent and very accommodating. The brunch selection from the menu totalled about 15 items and varied from egg dishes, salads and pasta. Each of us selected a different dish and all of us commented on how good the food was. Excellent coffee. The prices for Yorkville were very moderate. I would recommend this little "gem" to anyone.

Must have strolled by this unassuming walk down resto in Yorkville hundreds of times. It was a wonderful surprise. The staff is extremely professional and lunch was terrific! The pasta was great!

a gem in Yorkville!
I passed by this restaurant many times but never paid attn until now, and what a nice surprise! there is a small patio in the front but a few steps below is a wonderfully set up for a modern, bright yet cozy (imagine, winter nights); Love some of the art on the wall! menu is great & choices for Summerlicious are fantastic! The main course of fish/hen wrapped in prosciutto & desserts (all outstandingly good) the only 2 small flaws are the green salad..(just greens! nothing else!!) and no refills for coffee (!) The nice decor, basement feel & smaller size of the place remind me of Europe, it is a wonderful gem in fashionable YV!

The food was amazing! Although the staff made sure that we were attended to, the staff was good - nothing spectacular about them; pleasant but just okay.

I walk past this place all the time. Made reservations for Summerlicious and had to look for the place. Happy to have found this place. I will be back. Food was very good.

Enjoyed lunch at this restaurant this week. Summerlicious attracted us to try out this little restaurant. The food was delicious and service was efficient. Shopping in Yorkville? Stop for lunch here.

Nice ambience and location, attentive and courteous staff, and some great food! Every dish we ordered was good, but the cornish hen, chilled beet soup, and creme brulee really stood out. We went for Summerlicious, but the prices on the regular menu are not exorbitant for a Yorkville place, and they have a prix fixe lunch year-round.
7/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went here for summerlicious with a group of 8 coworkers. Food was great, service attentive, price was right. The only downside was once the resturant filled up it got a bit noisy. Loved it here and will definitely go back.

The restaurant was cozy and intimate, but a bit too noisy. Not a spot if you want to talk.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was very good, except for the desserts. The only "less than stellar" comment that I would make would be that the creme brulee was not as good as it was during Summerlicious.

Delicious brunch options with a nice street-side patio to relax in. Well worth a visit. Lobster Eggs Benedict was amazing. The Ceviche was also well worth the visit alone!

The tables were set to close
The tables were set to close to the entertainment thus moving in and out very awkward. Overall, good food and service.

Had lunch here before & was very impressed so I returned for a simple dinner this past wknd, celebrating our 35th wedding anniv. w/ our children. We were glad babies were"welcomed" as we have a new grandson and cannot leave him with anyone (the whole family were together that night) but they welcomed the baby when I called to inq' & another family came in w/ a younger baby too. Food was divine! I had the mushroom pasta, loved the different pasta they used (not the regular fettuccine) it was delicious! My husband had seafood pasta, he was very pleased. Yummy Tiramisu for desserts & coffee was so lovely!! Serv was outstanding! artsy setting (real arts on the wall altho not keen on the "subjects") but they chg the arts around now & then...

Great Meeting Place
First time customers. We were from out of town. Had an early dinner gathering with a large group. Beat the late dinner crowd and had a chance to visit without worrying about disturbing other diners. The food was truly amazing and the service was great! Will probably try this restaurant on a jazz entertainment evening.

Calamari and Chillean Sea Bass are the best I've ever tasted across many dining experiences elsewhere. Kudos to Sorrel Restaurant!

Mixed experience, generally good
Four of us ate dinner about mid Oct, so inside. Started about 6:30 pm. Lots of space then but got very full and noisier later on. Decor nothing special but acceptable. Service attentive and responsive. One of us ordered our beef medium well done but it arrived medium rare. Probably not ordered that way very often and no emphasis was given with the request, so the miss understandable. Two appetizers and four dinners all well presented and delicious, with only one exception. The small curled french fries were close to inedible. More leathery than crisp. No flavour. Meal cost consistent with the Yorkville area. Cost about $300 total for the meals with one bottle of lower cost wine. Avoid the fries and you'll be fine.
