Raven was delightful and Anthony most accommodating as always.
We had been to Sorrento’s previously for Saturday lunch, this was the brunch menu (which we were unaware of until after being seated). Menu is very limited, and there are NO substitutions (we asked for salad instead of fries for example). Service was very mediocre, often times with empty glasses...our food was delivered at separate times (we were finished with our meal prior to our Son getting his pizza). Very disappointing in that there was no Italian on the brunch menu (lunch was not offered). We may go back, but not for brunch...
No complaints on the food.
Was a bit put off that the pricing on the open table online menu and the website menu was different than the in person menu.
Substitution charges were not explained and seemed excessive; waiter admitted he should have explained it.
During dinner a stray cat came into the dining area and defecated next to us while we were eating. Waiter said the cooks feed it and that’s why it hangs around the restaurant. As you can image kinda ruined dinner for us.
Gluten free options need to be a little more exciting but still love your restaurant!
Outside covered patio is the best but it was the last option offered to us after we actually sat elsewhere. Service was good after initially sitting 10 plus min without anyone stopping by table. Would suggest hostesses take drink order when they seat you as we didn’t mind waiting but having a drink would’ve helped.
Loved the food & the outdoor dining space!
We made a reservation. We arrived a bit early and were seated promptly. Unfortunately, we were seated in the bar area. My sons were hungry and did not want to wait for a table in the dining room. The bar was had moderately loud music and large TVs. It was not a quiet or relaxing dinner for me. We were told no tables were available in dining room. The party that arrived just after us were then seated in the dining room right after we were settled in the bar.
Great wine list. Good prices for the delicious food. Excellent service.
Very good food and service! We will go back again!
Lovely Brunch and wonderful service--the Eggs Benedict and accompanying potatoes were a delight!
Although it can be noisy in the main dining room we had very good meals and enjoyed our evening.
Great meal - super service from John!
Food and service were excellent!
We had tried Chef's table last time and were very happy so this time we wanted Italian. Our meal was excellent as was the service. Mr. A's clams were fantastic, garlicky and served with a tasty broth over big chunks of bread, we'll get that next time for sure.
Open table showed only two spots available at a good time for dinner on the Saturday we were in town so we booked as it turns out, there was only one other table occupied on our side of the restaurant and shortly we were the only ones there.
We had a wonderful evening and excellent service from our waiter, Lauren. The food was quite good. My tortellini with prosciutto was superb and better than my husband's "just OK" lasagna. My main disappointment and suggestion for improvement would be fresh parmigiana ground at the table rather than a shaker of powdered "cheese". All the truly superb Italian restaurant offer it. Overall, very good experience but not great.
Always good food and good people watching. Love the menu and Zach was our server and he was very good!
Tried the Lasagna again. I find it a bit below par by my expectations.
My wife enjoyed her Mahi Mahi very much on the other hand.
Food is consistently good and Matt was excellent as our wait person - thanks!!
We had the table by the music which made conversation a little difficult but it was a most enjoyable evening.
Our order was lost and we had no feedback when when we asked about the order. The waitress finally admitted the order was lost after nearly a 45 minute wait. The waitress tried to get the manager to come to our table, but he refused.
We go here twice a week! Love the place great veal parmigiana
Great food & service and enjoyed dining on the patio.
Food was delicious, especially the sushi which we ordinarily do not enjoy very much. The menu was not as unusual or gourmet as we had wanted and expected. Menu was rather ordinary.
Everything was great, best veal , and eggplant parmigiana. Our server Sydney was terrific!
Sorrento's is consistently excellent. We have dined there many times and we are never disappointed. We highly recommend Sorrento's
Wonderful place to eat in Banner Elk. I had the crab cake which was outstanding. Generous portions, delicious food and Crista was an excellent server. Overall a great experience.
Chose here for a wedding anniversary based upon a recommendation. The food is OUTSTANDING. Servers are well trained, polite, helpful and attentive. My only personal qualm would be the setting, if you're looking for something romantic this isnt it. The ambience is more lively and can get up to a dull roar at times, but not such a big deal if you're just having a date night etc. Overall a good experience.
I ordered the eggplant parmigiana and was not impressed with the taste of the eggplant or the sauce. My friend ordered the chicken piccata and was not impressed as well. The chicken was thick,there was no capers in the sauce and really not much to taste to the noodles.
We have been eating here for 10 years, food is delicious, service is excellent. Seafoods and Paste dishes are always a great choice. This is a wonderful casual restaurant for friends and Family to get together, cool vibe.
Always good! A bit noisy. But we love it! We always come back! Great service! Always!
Best Pizza Around! Very Noisy atmosphere! The whole menu is very dependable. I've been going there since the day that they opened and that's a lot of years ago now. can't remember how many.
Food and service was good. Seating kind of uncomfortable and drafty. I'd go back.
Always exceptional!! We go twice a year as we do not live local
Food was incredible
Great food. We had the broccoli and cavatelli along with eggplant parm. Wonderful butter rolls served to all upon seating. Loud, close tables to each other so could be a challenge for low talkers. Well worth a visit.
We were expecting much more from the food. It was just acceptable. We really hope they are just in an off season slump and will turn it around. Our wait person was unenthusiastic and i would not want her again but several of the other staff were uncommonly friendly and welcoming. So all in all, just a so so experience.
The food and service were amazing. Enjoyed every detail and would recommend for anyone in the area as the best we have had to date. Priced well and wines were exceptional value
Amazing food and amazing restaurant. The vodka pasta is so good and my boyfriend thoroughly enjoyed the pizza with pepperoni (and he is very picky). We are from out of town but otherwise would make this a regular spot!
Our meal was truly delicious and enjoyable. Garlic rolls were awesome. We love this place.
We had heard good things from several people about Sorrento’s, however we had a terrible experience. We made a reservation for a early dinner at 4:00, arrived at 3:50, the waitress gave us the lunch menu, but didn’t tell us the dinner menu started in 5 minutes, so we ordered a few things we didn’t really want. The chicken tasted like rubber and the sausage, onions and pepper were about the size of half a palm. Even though we made reservations, and the restaurant was half-full, they seated us next to the restrooms
I won’t go into details on the waitress, but she was just horrible.
Just an awful experience.
