The food was good not great. The beet appetizer was just ok. The beets were way too big. The mozz sticks said homemade with wonton wraps and they were frozen from a bag and not wonton wrapped. The chicken Marsala was not like any Marsala we have ever had. Do not order that. On the positive. The bread was good and the baked manicotti was good.

We had a large party and they took wonderful care of us.
Only feedback I’d give is we would of liked a check in about 1/2 through meal as most of us were out of water and others wanted another drink.
It was not busy but the couple employees were definitely busy.
Food was delicious and hot

We were visiting from out of town and chose Sorrento House due to the lack of crowds.

We were turned off by the fact that employees are not required to wear masks.

My Mom’s salmon was delivered mostly raw and my manicotti was ice cold inside. They reheated it to room temp and served my Mom a new salmon dish, that was different than what she ordered and was also still raw.

We visited Sorrento House on a Friday evening and had an excellent fish fry. The food was great but the drinks we ordered left a bit to be desired. The Bloody Mary was kind of blah and the pineapple mojito was bitter - it needed simple syrup. We will definitely visit again and try some pizza next time!

We didn’t expect super fancy, which was fine. The food was mostly good, garlic bread was great. Beets and bruschetta were good as well. We ordered the chicken Parmesan and the chicken marsala for entrees. The Marsala was described as having a creamy wine sauce but there wasn’t much for creamy- more of a mushroom water sauce. Overall okay. I probably wouldn’t order them again. Server was nice. Attentive at first, but didn’t check back much after dinner was delivered or offer a refill on my wine

Hi Mackenzie, I am sorry for the delay with my response. Thank you so much for your review, we greatly appreciate it! We are working on the marsala recipe actually to make it reflect more of the description as there is a discrepancy, as you mentioned. We definitely hope to see you again soon!

Service was good. Food came out slow and quality was pretty average. Lots of heavy, fried breaded options and very few fresh options. Didn’t have enough shrimp for more than 1 plate.

We were a group of four. We ordered 3 different types of entrees. Everyone was delighted! We will come back again for sure. We started out with garlic bread (advertised as all you can eat) It was crispy and buttery with good garlic flavor. Everyone enjoyed it. My Wife and her friend both ordered Chicken Parmesan. They said it was very tasty. My friend Steve had stuffed noodles and a side order of meatballs. The meatballs were huge (about the size of a hardball). I had chicken Lasagna made with chicken and spinach and Alfredo sauce I never had a dish like this that tasted so good.

We all ate about half of the serving and took the other half home. The portion size is large. Maybe we could have eaten the entire serving if we hadn't eaten so much garlic bread. The restaurant had very few people because of the Covid virus. I hope they survive because we look forward to going there again. Our waitress took really good care of us.

Was sad to see they removed the Soho salad from the menu. I ordered the chicken marsala and found it bland, with not much flavor. But overall, it wont stop us from coming here as we have found the other food tasty. WE love the martinis and the half price on Thursdays!

We were seated right away in the bar area. They brought garlic bread that was dripping in grease, you could wring it out. My Caprese salad was so overdressed, but never saw our server to tell her as she was playing bartender having to mix all her drinks for her tables. My son was going to be having the same salad as an entree, so I wanted to catch her to tell her to have the dressing on the side, but never saw her until she brought his to the table. I told it was way overdressed and we’d like the dressing on the side. She was very friendly, grabbed it up to go to the kitchen; however, came back with the salad covered in dressing stating this is how it comes and this one should be a little less dressed. Needless to say my son ate it as he was hungry, but the dressing was still so overpowering causing his eyes to water at times. I had the eggplant parm which was quite firm and on a bed of penne with a red sauce that was practically tasteless. Very disappointed and to top it off they listed us as a no-show for Open Table. We won’t be back.

The food was very good for the most part. One member of our party said their food tasted soapy. The remainder of guests enjoyed the food. The garlic bread is extremely "buttery" so ask for light butter if possible. The service was incredibly slow for a night that did not seem very busy. Despite all of that, the menu looked great and we will definitely try it again. The combination of food, drink and atmosphere made it very appealing.

It was a last minute decision to go out for dinner and Sorrento House had a few remaining tables on the whole west side last Friday so we gave it a try. We were very pleased with the décor, the friendliness of the staff, and the well made food. Bryanna was our waiter and was so helpful, friendly, and efficient. I hat a very tasty plate of lasagna and my friend had a very well made fish fry. And we couldn't stop eating the buttery garlilc bread. Large portions, so no room for dessert. We'll definitely be back.

Food was excellent, our server was very friendly, courteous, checking on our needs frequently. Price of meal very reasonable. Garlic bread was the bomb with all you can eat. The only con I have is no selection of a Premium Non Alcoholic Beer Heinekin 0.0 would be a good option to have. Will definitely return

We chose Sorrento House for my daughter's 10th birthday dinner and were very impressed by the service and the menu. The food was pretty classic comfort food and came in sizable portions, including the kids' meals. Service was very friendly and helpful, and my daughter and her friend loved drawing on the chalkboard next to our booth. We will definitely be back!
