    Food was delicious, could have used a little more of a portion of food, but I am a big eater, so I would recommend to order a salad or appetizer, and finish with a dessert. The experience of our dinner from the food, ambience, and waiter was truly a good one. Will be going again!

    Food is SOME of the best you can find in the Houston area. We first dined here in 2011 and 13 years later it did not disappoint for our Valentine's Day Date Night. Get reservations and valet park. Great start to a perfect evening!

    The filet and lobster were excellent. The entire meal was magnificent. The server Raul and his team waited on us with 10 Star service. Our glasses and bread plate never got empty. We recommend this place to anyone that demands quality and excellence in dining. The prices are right on spot for the quantity and quality you receive. If you are looking for "that" restaurant, you will find it at Sorrento.

    Serving the food in small portions and nicely decorated doesn’t make you a Michelin star restaurant, it’s the taste. I booked the restaurant like a month ahead then after a week, the restaurant called to inform me that they switched to a set menu with a fixed price per person. I was ok with it expecting a real food experience. We were two couples in a double date on Valentine’s day, and we were all disappointed. The scallop was just a scallop, the sea bass was less than a sea bass (frozen maybe) and the tiramisu was nothing like a tiramisu. Too overpriced for the taste of food, and not only the price. I wouldn’t go there again with the half of what I paid because the food didn’t taste well. I liked the service though and the atmosphere.

    Absolutely loved the atmosphere and the service by Michael was amazing. I loved the bread tray, the garlic served with bread, and the dessert which was a chocolate soufflé. The spaghetti with veal meatballs - very tasty meatballs but red sauce was marginal. The scallops with risotto was good too. Everything either good to great with exception of red sauce. Just wasn’t authentic red sauce - tasted pizza sauce - too heavy.

    Sorrento's is probably the best restaurant in Houston. The food is outstanding, and the service is attentive. An evening at Sorrento's is magic when your dinner is accompanied by live piano music. I had grilled red snapper with artichokes and it was outstanding.

    Some people say Houston doesn’t have good Italian and to those folks I would echo they have looked in all the wrong places. The ambience is great and the food was pretty tasty. Unfortunately, for me I ate buffalo chicken prior to coming to dinner. But the salmon and shrimp and salad assortment were great for the evening.
