Diner Reviews
  • "My husband and I were in Houston for our anniversary and made a reservation at Sorrento. We were not disappointed! From the moment we arrived to valet parking until we drove off two hours later, we were treated like royalty. The atmosphere is very romantic. The pianist at the grand piano was excellent. Everything she played seemed as though I had chosen the playlist. The service was excellent. As we were having cocktails, we were presented with a complimentary appetizer, a delicious cheese ravioli. Our meals were perfect; my husband had the veal chop and I had ahi tuna. We were also presented with a complimentary dessert with a candle on it while the pianist played the Anniversary Song. It was an evening to remember. We shall return!!"

  • "Three freinds having dinner a Sorrentos and every dish was outstanding. My friend from Norway commented on the freshness of the buffalo mozzarella in the featured salad and the perfect presentation of her duck. I had the tasting menu and all four courses were delightful. My friend ate his usual scallops and he is never disappointed. A lovely pinot noir was suggested in our price range and we all talked the next day of the great evening we had."

  • "Positives: Beautiful building. We were seated in the sunroom along one side of the building -- beautiful wood and glass design. They have an amazing piano at the entrance and the music was great. Great wine list -- lots of options under $100/bottle. Their markup seemed to be very reasonable - under $80 for a Mondavi Oakville. Negatives: Mediocre service. Our greeting at the door felt awkward and the server was a bit inattentive. Our courses felt very rushed -- we got through the four course tasting menu in under an hour. Not enough pause between courses. Food was tasty, but did not impress by fine dining standards. Really no wow-factor in any of the courses. This restaurant felt geared toward an older crowd."

  • "Just tried Sorrento for the first time. What a restaurant!! Made a reservation for Tues; not crowded. Recommend the valet parking. The interior is lovely with several private rooms. The menu is varied and while Sorrento serves some traditional Italian dishes, they are over the top in quality and taste. The specials were wonderful and the sides were divine. I personally love risotto and they had several on their menu cooked to perfection. Our server, Steven, was great; not overbearing but always there when he thought we might need something. Steven said they try to buy local and so their specials vary from day to day bc they use only the best available. This is going to be our "go to" place to dine w/ friends and our new local hangout"

  • "I took my friends here for lunch. Everything was perfect. The food was real Italian. I had osso buco and my friends had the sea bass. We were all so pleased with the 3 course business lunch for $24. A bottle of Kim Crawford Souvingnon Blanc for $20!!! I can't wait to go back for dinner with my hubby."

  • "Our first dining experience at Sorrento was a wonderful, luxurious, authentic meal. The menu had plentiful choices,the piano music was relaxing and the food was delicious. Ou waiter entertained us with his stories of growing up in Rome. This is not an ordinary, run of the mill, Italian restaurant. There is a private room that I am going to try to reserve for my birthday."

  • "From the moment you are greeted at the door to the initial Fresh Baked Bread Assortment with Roasted Garlic and Olive Oil starter you will notice the attention to every detail. The Daily specials, and standard favorites are created with the highest quality ingredients and prepared with 5 star passion and 5 star presentation. It is a must stop destination every time we are in Houston. Great Fresh Seafood, Steaks, Foul, and side dishes. Good Size Wine Tasting and dinner Library Room for parties up to 15 for corporate or special family events. Perfect spot for romantic Date Night, special occasion celebration, or just a treat away from the hectic pace of normal life."

The manager Trey let us know that their was a parade the night of our reservation & the street would be closing and let us know of alternate routes & valet parking. Our waiter Diego was wonderful with his recommendations and attention and service. It was a wonderful evening as always."

The quality of the food was extremely high and evrything we ordered surpassed our expectations. We celebrated our daughter's 21st birthday at Sorrento's and they surprised her (and us!) with a complimentary dessert and candle as the excellent pianist played the birthday song - unforgettable evening!"

  • "For our 1st visit I chose Sorrento for my birthday dinner with family discovering it on OpenTable. We were delighted to be seated in the lovely "wine room" with a bit more privacy & I cannot say enough about this place! We started at the bar waiting for all to arrive & enjoyed delicious martinis with the delightful bartender. The food was simply incredible, the wine list wonderful and the service impeccable! The 6 of us had different entrees & shared bites-every single dish was to die for! We also enjoyed a couple of the appetizer specials & they were fabulous too! They had a number of evening specials-appetizers & entrees. They brought me a complimentary double chocolate cake, we ordered others & they were SO good! Can't wait to go back!"

  • "Sorrento's is our #1 favorite restaurant. On our last visit I had the chilean sea bass, and it was out of this world. Cooked perfectly. My husband usually has the lasagna which he loves. The service is always the best, and Trey the manager watches over and checks on everything to make sure all is in order. Wonderful live piano music (not too loud), and the restaurant itself is beautiful. We love this place, always have a great dining experience, and just enjoy being there!"

  • "Went for Sunday Brunch - Fathers' Day, special menu - I prefer the regular menu. My husband's scallops were excellent, my sea bass left some to be desired, not the best for the price. I had asked if the sea bass was moist and had been assured that it was, but not so. We love Sorrento and will return, but not on a "Special Menu" Day."

  • "In entertaining a guest from France we wanted to have her experience a taste of Italy from what we considered the top of the line restaurant in Houston. We arrived on a Sunday which was, fortunately, a less crowded time. From the get-go, with the huge bread basket which was brought to our table for a selection from 6/7 choices. to the exquisit Yentrees (each person (3) had something different) right on thru to the dessert and coffee it was like a magical moment in an eating experience. This jewel of a restaurant gets our accolades."

  • "This was our first time to Sorrento's. My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary in Houston and had gone to a Broadway play. We got all dressed up for the show and then wanted to find a nice place for dinner that would be romantic and classy. We had people pulling out our chairs for us, placing napkins on our laps. The service was outstanding and very classy! The wine was reasonably priced and the food was DELICIOUS! (Note: it does get pretty expensive, but, was worth it). They also provided my wife and I a really classy and super yummy dessert to help us celebrate our anniversary. I have NO complaints about this place (well, maybe the check amount... but that's really my fault.... it was GOOD food!). Highly Recommend!"
