Exceptional food and service from Heather. Numerous specials offered, chose the wild salmon entree that was delicious. Friends had steaks and a chop, also yummy. Highly recommend.
Great service and food.
Everything was great...especially the service! Everyone was very friendly!
Some of the best italian food in the entire area!!! Great service, fun, love new outdoor spaces and all the different options for dining inside or outside.
As residents of Banner Elk, NC, we dine at Sorrento’s often. It’s a fabulous restaurant that we love to bring our out-of-town guests. The meal tonight was excellent as usual and Laura, our waitress, was the best. The jazz band playing in the upstairs Chef’s Table area was enjoyed by all.
This restaurant was mobbed with people on a Saturday night many of whom were not wearing masks. Made us uncomfortable.
You will not make a mistake eating here—make your reservation now!
Trout with a beurre blanc sauce was fabulous. Great food. Great service. Lovely outdoor patio in back.
We were really disappointed with the quality of the food. Our chicken parmesan sandwiches tasted like they had been made with prepackaged frozen patties. Nothing tasted fresh except for the French fries and the sandwich rolls! The sandwich itself was tiny.
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.
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.
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.
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.
