The meal was very good overall though one or two of us found our chicken slightly undercooked in the middle. Service and atmosphere excellent.

Sorin's is a real hidden treasure in South Bend. The food is always lovely, the service is professional and attentive, the setting is quiet enough to let you enjoy your dinner guests and converse without shouting for restaurant noise that has become so common. Great wine list and the flaming Irish coffee tastes as amazing as the performance while it is being prepared.

Duck special was amazing. Very tender which is hard to find with duck dishes. Scallops special also delicious. Corn chowder was fine. Service was attentive but drinks were slow due to a large cocktail crowd on the patio

Juan was Outstanding. He made our anniversary ever so special. Flowers, the strawberries and even the fired frangellico coffees were fantastic! We will always remember what he did for us! Great Experience!!

It was what one would expect in an upscale restaurant. The fact that it was in the Morris Inn on the Notre Dame campus made it more special.

We had breakfast as a family at Sorin’s on Easter morning. The service was fast and friendly, the food was excellent, and the setting was delightful. I have eaten at Sorin’s many times and have never been disappointed.

As an alumni of Notre Dame, it is a pleasure to have such a great restaurant on campus. We stayed at the Morris Inn, and had a very busy schedule. So it was also wonderful that we did not have to drive anywhere. You should skip the after dinner drink and head next door to Rohr's and wrap up your night with a drink made by Murf.

Sorin's is lovely but for breakfast in South Bend, Indiana, it is horribly overpriced. A bloody mary is $14. My "Irish" french toast was $13. With a side of bacon and the tip I paid $40 -- for Breakfast!!

Nice restaurant in the hotel "right on campus." The food is good, the restaurant space itself is what you might expect for a hotel restaurant. The real "five star" experience is being at the University of Notre Dame and experiencing the magic that is ND. If you understand ND no explanation is necessary, if you do not understand "the magic of ND" no explanation is sufficient. Service was excellent, menu was limited, but diverse. Preparation of our food was quite good, top notch. All in all a great experience on campus.

Food was extremely disappointing. No flavor at all. Filet was tender and mashed potatoes were good. Otherwise felt was complete waste of money. Very overrated. Service was good. Would never go back or recommend.

Had a fixed menu for Valentines Day Dinner. Food was delicious! The after dinner drink presentation was awesome.
Wait staff was really hustling. But I think they were a person or 2 short staffed, which slowed the timing down a little bit. Overall great evening - our waiter was a master at his craft!

The cream of corn soup was delicious, but the Ceasar salad was not very good. I should have ordered the grilled romaine which I like very much. The lettuce for the salad I ordered was not good.

What a marvelous time we had at tea at Sorin’s. From the valet service through the wine, it was the perfect celebration with my friend.
Our server, Ashley, was an absolute delight. Professional, but not stuffy at all, she made the whole experience extra special.
Thank you to all the staff...we will be back!

A creative and thoughtful menu with welcome healthy options. Broccoli side and faro/kale side were DELICIOUS. Steak was perfect. Blackened salmon salad was OK, except that the greens seemed to have been dumped from a Dole bag. Unfortunate. Service is friendly and homey. Great desserts. A solid 4 stars. Oh yes, essential: free valet parking.

The wait staff. as usual, were very helpful and attentive. However, I was quite surprised that I was charged $12.00 for a Bloody Mary, when I indicated "bar vodtka." The small Bloody Mary at Legends two weeks ago cost $6.00.

The food was great. The duck well prepared and nicely presented. Waitress forgot the bread and we had to remind her. Not that we were in too much of a hurry, she was slow. Had several large parties. We were not offended and we ended up talking to folks around us. Was a busy evening

We ended up unexpectedly with the breakfast menu (my misunderstanding). Some interesting options. Shaved brussel sprouts the Eggs Benedict was nice although the hollandaise sauce was less than great in flavor. Seemed pricey for what it all was - but - it is Notre Dame after all.!

Nice atmosphere. Grateful to have a place to dine on Christmas Day.

Had very solid Xmas eve dinner at Sorins. It was pretty full but our table in the corner was very quiet and conversation was easy. The duck was very good and the presentation of the dish was very artful. Reserve wine from Paul Hobbes was excellent.

Server was very inattentive. Though the restaurant wasn’t very full, it was a long time before food was delivered, and then it was only lukewarm. Server forgot to deliver a beverage and had to be asked.
