Sorrento Ristorante Italiano
Best brunch deal in town!Excellent brunch items (crab cakes benedict - yum!), but the best deal is the prix fixe menu which is only available on Sunday. Any soup/salad, any entree, any dessert for $35!6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMBellisimo!We have had the privilege to visit Italy on a couple occasions and then set out to find a place in Houston that could take us back in spirit again and again. After trying several places, we have settled onto Sorrento. For starters: must haves are the Burrata Mozzarella when on special (otherwise the Caprese is fantastic) and the Wild Mushroom Risotto (made tableside). Everything is a right choice for the entree, for fish I always go with the Sea Bass, my wife the Salmon - - both perfecto!. I often go with one of the Veal or Lamb options. All exceptional. Great ambiance, very attentive service. Plan on a cordial of Lemoncello to put a wrapper on a great dining experience.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways Consistently DeliversThis is about the 6th visit to Sorrento's Italian Restorante for dinner and every time they consistently deliver superior food, exceptional service (Sergio is awesome) and a relaxing environment. Family dropped in unexpectedly from out of town and immediately thought to take them to Sorrento's for great conversation, great food and NO dishes to clean up! This night we enjoyed the halibut, salmon and ahi tuna. All three dishes were cooked to perfection, well presented and, delivered timely - even though it was prime time on a Saturday night. Just love this place.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved the ambiance! The onlyLoved the ambiance! The only thing better than the food was the music. Nothing beats live piano playing to set the mood.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMI have been dinning at Sorrento’sI have been dinning at Sorrento’s for many years now. I have never been disappointed. The service is impeccable; the décor is classy, sophisticated. The piano players are fantastic and make the ambiance romantic and subtle but with a splash of spice. But the best of Sorrento’s is the food. Every single dish is prepared with perfection. The portions are the right size, the flavor is divine and the presentation of every dish seems like a small piece of art. The specials are always a wonderful choice. My favorites: Burrata Di Bufala with Baby Heriloom Tomatoes; Chilean Sea Bass and the triple chocolate cake…mmmmm……Not to forget, Trey, the manager is absolutely marvelous!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMSecond time for us. AnthonySecond time for us. Anthony provided outstanding service. Will be back for sure.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMExtra Attention without RequestExcellent service and food. Our special occassion for my wife's birthday was handled flawlessly without any input on our part other than noting it on my online open table reservation.

We will be back again soon.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMFive star all the way!The service was fantastic! You must try each of the breads!

Ask for Sergio if available.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was an excellant find.This was an excellant find. Food was great. Service was great.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe restaurant was unusuallyThe restaurant was unusually noisy and loud. On previous visits, I remembered that it had seemed pleasantly subdued and quiet.. There was considerable moving of tables and chairs near my table. We (a table of 4) did have a reservation, but had to wait for our table.
In regards to this, the wait staff and manager did apologize with sincerity. However, there was no offer of complimentary dishes/beverage.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect Romantic RestaurantOur first time at Sorrento's (not sure how we've missed it being in Houston 25 years). Found it via OpenTable's Romantic Restaurant list and took my wife for her birthday. She loved it...great atmosphere, great staff, great food. We've been missing a place like this since our favorite Pino's restaurant closed some years ago. Live piano music was also very nice! We'll be back.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMImpressedIt was my bf and I's 1 year anniversary and it went outstanding....I had the gniocchi while he had the osso bucco...and both were very satisfied service was excelent very attentive and our server raul was beyond it. The manager as well made us feel welcomed. Will defenetly be going back soon.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMBeyond ExpectationsThis was a romantic meeting with a second date. I had flowers sent beforehand. I can not say enough good about this resturant. When we arrived, it was like we were expected with anticipation. Our table was as requested, very romantic and the flowers were on the table. The servers were outstanding. They were there when needed but did not hover. The food was to die for. The appitiser was delicious and unique. My veal chop was the best I have ever had. Fork tender but cooked medium as I asked. The desert was on the house because we were celebrating my birthday and it was excellent. The live piano in the background rounded out one of the finest meals I have ever had. The evening as a whole will stand out in my memory for a long time.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMTop-notch RestaurantLate to our reservation due to weather but they accomodated us right away. The service was excellent even though it was a packed night. The food and wine was great. Highly recommend for date night or dinner with friends.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe selected Sorrento to entertainWe selected Sorrento to entertain some guests who had never been there before. We enjoyed our food which was excellent. Always listen carefully about the specials because some of them are to die for! The service was great.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMSorrento is fabulous in decor,Sorrento is fabulous in decor, service and most importantly in food. I wanted everything on the menu. They recently refurbished and to my dismay and our tables the gentle piano playing and the relaxation has been gratly diminished by the addition of extra tables-vastly making the quitet refined atmosphere a little less enjoyable--We will go again but thenoise level was either a rowdy crod or crowded tables-each of which was filled--we will try a week night but just beware of the racket on Saturday. Still one of the best places to eat in town.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMPrompt and personal servicePrompt and personal service from a pleasant waiter, excellent food imaginatively prepared, and sufficient range of wines by the glass. We had the four course tasting menu and they kindly split the main courses into two plates, so that in effect we had a five course menu. A lot to eat.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMMake you wanna holla!!Last night while working in Houston. I took a ride out this location to have dinner. The menu was ohhh so tantalizing! While I wanted the Osso Bucco not knowing when I would get back I decided on the Chef's Tasting Menu...
First: Hand Crafted Braised Veal Osso Buco Ravioli
Second: Baby Heirloom Tomatoes, Burrata Di Bufala and Oliva Di Ombria
Third: Medium Rare Filet Mignon & Seared Foie Gras with Green Peppercorn-Cognac Sauce Fourth: Orange Confit Preserve Panna Cotta with Fresh Vanilla Bean and Raspberry Sauce
This meal was fantastic and I could not put a dent in all. Sergio and Luis were great attendants. Trey the manager made me feel at home.

Themenu is extensive as is the wine list-from appetizers to desert it is outstanding--a wonderful dining ecperience-very popular be sure to reserve-ut they handle it well1/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNew Year's Eve not as good as usualNew Year's Eve is not the time to rate a restaurant fairly, and Sorrento was no exception. The food was good to very good, but not up to their usual "excellent" rating. We went for the early bird seating, and felt rushed through dinner. Some of the dishes were not served as warm as they should have been, which resulted in the flavors not truly coming through properly. I mentioned this to our server, who told the manager, who apologized profusely, and then offered a pair of complimentary after-dinner limoncellos. My wife opted for a coffee instead, and I took a grappa instead, so we were very satisfied. Our expectations for NYE are low, regardless of where we dine, so this actually exceeded expectations, but was not up to their usual.12/31/2012 12:00:00 AMThis was Morgan's choice forThis was Morgan's choice for her birthday celebration dinner, and the experience was excellent. The wait staff was courteous, friendly and attentive and immediately intervened when one filet steak that had been ordered "medium" came to the table "well done"-- that item was replaced and the charge removed from the bill. Entrees ordered by other guests were mainly superb, although one guest noted that her sea bass was somewhat over-salted. As always, Sorrento's wine selection is both diverse and excellent, and the desserts were properly decadent. All things considered, the evening lived up to everyone's expectations and Morgan had a great birthday!1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
