    Great setting and location. The servers and hosts seemed very out of sorts. The service could be much improved. The valet, however was the most attentive valet I have ever seen. The starters were the best part of the meal. The main courses were average. Music was too loud to have a decent conversation. I would come back for cocktails, but not a meal.

    We arrived 30 minutes early for our brunch reservation on accident and we’re still promptly seated on the patio. The menu is not large, but I’ve found that usually means the food is prepared with more thought and care, and this was correct because everything was absolutely fantastic. We started off with a few starters (the Risotto was *to die* for) I and another person had the smoked salmon Benedict, my other friend had the regular Benedict and one other tried the omelette, all were mouth wateringly delicious! The drinks were also so tasty! The springtime spritz was incredibly refreshing, and the Sangria Lisi was such an interesting combination that turned out to be super delightful! The service was on point, the ambiance was perfect for a relaxing Sunday brunch and the food and drinks were just the cherry on top! Will definitely be coming here again soon 😊

    Super cute courtyard setting - very well designed with great heat lamps for when it got colder. Cocktails & oysters were great and don’t miss the French fries- very thin and crispy.

    We were looking for outdoor dining due to the pandemic and we felt very safe. The host greeted us wonderfully. The waiter was attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. He was very accommodating as we wanted to dine family style. The Arrancini was delicious, tender rice, flavorful sauce, hot and crispy. The salads we chose were plentiful and nice flavors (strawberries, greens, chevre, and dressing). Hamburger was as close to perfect as it gets and the Truffle Fries were hot, crispy, and not over powered by truffle. Scallops were cooked perfect and the ravioli /artichokes in a cream sauce was excellent. All agreed we would go back.

    To say I was disappointed is an understatement. It was a ten minute wait (with reservations) and we were sat right in the sun. We ordered coffee and it took well over an hour to receive cream, and an hour and a half for the sugar. We received our drinks very late and unfortunately never received our food. The waiter informed us that the kitchen was backed up, which is understandable. However, everyone around us received food and drinks quickly, even those that arrived well after us. The waiter wasn’t very apologetic and made us feel uncomfortable when we asked for the check to get brunch elsewhere. I won’t be coming back.

    Appetizers were great, drinks were great but the bolognese was not good. Meat stuck together…almost if finely minced. My daughter and I shared it and neither of us ate very much of it.

    Extraordinary harmony and quality in superbly creative dishes and desserts. While the menu isn't particularly large, every one of the 6 items we selected was exceptionally well balanced in flavor, texture, and presentation. From the warm olives and the strawberries with chevre to the scallops, the steelhead, and the pear poached in primitivo, everything was perfectly prepared and served in a setting reminiscent of an upscale Parisian restaurant. Definitely will return!!

    What a truly special place. We decided to sit at the bar (there are two, and both are stunning) because you can get the restaurant menu there and we thought the ambiance was lovely. We shared arancini, the tomato and burrata and the parapadelle bolognese - all excellent! Everything was fresh and lovingly prepared. We had the insane coconut flan with coconut cookies (still dreaming of this dish!) and the fantastic cannoli for dessert. The experience is the opposite of most hotel restaurants; the service was friendly and personal and the food was top-notch. We will be back!

    We’ve been to the Sorrento many times. This was by far the worst experience. The male bartender in the Stella restaurant was extremely rude and combative. Each employee appeared to have no idea what the other was doing. We felt as if there was no management to direct staff. This resulted in very poor service.

    I chose Stella because I had an event to get to at St James Cathedral nearby, and was delighted to find the diver scallops on potato ravioli with a cream sauce and a simple arugula with balsamic salad. The coconut flan was worth another trip to Seattle.
