Great ServiceOur service was excellent. The waiter knew how to be at our table and provide great service without crossing the line and being a pest. He was very good.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat foodI think Sorrel has great food and healthy selections. The waitstaff is friendly and accommodating. The wine list is moderately expensive and it would be nice to see some lower prices. Overall, it's one of the best restaurants in Houston.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellant andThe food was excellant and even though it was very busy since it was Mother's Day, the wait staff went out of their way to make sure we were all happy, they even brought my granddaughter a different entree when she wasn't pleased with her first choice.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWONDERFUL!Simply wonderful!

We also had our 4 year old grandson with us. The waiter was wonderful with our grandson and even came out to say goodbye to him after lunch. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The fried oysters were fabulous, and the complimentary dessert they brought our son with a candle was an absolutely delicious berry shortbread. We had only been there for dinner before which has always been delicious. Lunch was more laid-back and quieter, and we enjoyed a relaxed, delicious lunch..5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMA Truly Excellent MealWith its twice-daily changing menu and phenomenal cuisine, Sorrel UB is a destination any foodie in Houston should add to their list of regular haunts.

I can't wait to return and see what is their rotating menu!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWait staff was top notch withoutWait staff was top notch without being the least intrusive4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe like Sorrel but . . .We've been to Sorrel several times, and it's always fun because the chef is so willing to experiment, and the food is fresh. However, it is quite expensive and it's always possible an experiment may go awry.
I ordered a buffalo strip steak that the waiter recommended I have cooked medium rare (I'd initially asked for medium) so it would be more tender. But when it arrived, it was so tough it was very hard to cut. In fact, when I first tried, it flipped on its side, knocking the onions atop it into my lap. The waiter replaced it with a tender filet, but it was cooked rare with a cool center. Tasty, but not the way I really like it.
Not sure we'll go back.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place is the tops locallyOne of the top places in the city, Soren's kitchen is fabulous, and my only wish is that they had a little more room.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food.
