Love this place. Great ambiance. Variety of choices for breakfast. Did afternoon tea - highly recommend! Will return over and over again
We love Sorin’s ... it makes any occasion a special occasion.
Restaurant wasn't busy but service slow. Three tables seated after us received their meals before we even we're able to order. We waited 5 minutes for a soup spoon. We were a table of 2. The restaurant wasn't busy, inexcusable for a restaurant serving this fare and at these prices.
Food was very good. They have done a great job with the renovation. Extensive wine list, but no listing for spirits. The server was not sure what brands they offered, only that they had a particular spirit. A printed list would be helpful for those not drinking wine.
There is nothing French about this place. The food was cold and the service mediocre. Very disappointed.
I've been eating at Sorin's for a couple decades, and once considered it one of South Bend's best kept secrets: imaginative food, prepared well, and only a little pricey. But over the last few years, the quality here has dropped precipitously, the menu is little more than steak and chicken (both over-cooked), and the quality coming from the kitchen doesn't come close to what it once was. My friends and I would often use Sorin's for business lunches or dinners, but we don't anymore, choosing Cafe Navarre instead. Service tonight was actually fine, but in other recent visits it's been ridiculously slow and inattentive. And to top it off, many of their menu prices were 25% higher than advertised online. (One bright spot: the wine list isn't half bad.)
We have been patrons of Sorin's for many years and always enjoy the people, food & setting. However, the hostess who was on staff on the morning of Sunday February 11, 2018 was probably the worst hostesses I have every expienced. She was rude, dismissive, ignored our requests and lied about availability of our table. We will always return to Sorin's but hope the hostess will be replaced soon.
The food is okay, but most items listed in the online menu are not available, which doesn't make sense. Also, another fact I didn't like was the purpose for my husband and I went to have a decent dinner was celebrating our anniversary and we were there earlier than another big group of about 5-6 people, but they were arranged just sit next to us (no other people were in the restaurant and plenty of tables available), they were kind of loud and made us feel hardly hear each other when we chatted. Our overall experience was much lower than expected.
My friend and I received excellent service by Petra!
As always, Leslie and Diane, the two hostesses were very accommodating, especially when our reservation went from four people to five people, and then quickly back to four people because of one person's cancellation because of sudden illness. Later during our visit, these two hostesses were terribly patient, when a party of 30-40 adults, making a last--minute reservation -- and mostly grade school age children were seated on the upper level, and suddenly decided that they preferred to dine in Rohr's Tavern, another dining option in The Morris Inn. And, suddenly got up and walked out. Ugh. There is an excellent baby kale salad on the brunch menu, which is a favorite of vegetarians. However, lately, more mature kale leaves are ending up in this salad, without their long stems being removed. Making for a less attractive salad. We continue to hope that the servers and bus people could be trained not to remove plates until all guests have completed their meals. A sign of an excellent fine dining restaurant.
this is our fifth or sixth new Years eve at Sorins and it was enjoyed by all.
We had dinner there on New Year's Eve, while the food was excellent, the service and atmosphere would best be described as aqueduct. I really expected more from a high end restaurant. It should also be noted that the weather outside was very cold, near zero, leading to the temperature in the restaurant as also being very cool which led to the food being very cool by the time we finished.
We also had breakfast there the following morning, on New Year's Day with a much less that satisfactory experience. The food was good, not great and the service was very lacking, this came not only from us but others around us who were complaining about how slow it was to get the most basic of meals. Again you would expect more from a high end restaurant.
Went for Christmass Brunch. Everything was great!
Highly recommend this for special occasions.
First Class in every way and reasonable prices. Seats are very comfortable and ambience is quiet and clean
Service was slow, food was not hot but warm, and presentation was pathetic.
Excellent as always! Wonderful food, good service and attention to detail is apparent!
Great atmosphere with elegant decore, food was excellent
The restaurant seemed to be busier than usual for a Sunday morning, with a couple of large, family groups. However, our server Diane kindly suggested that she take our orders as soon as we were ready, because of the anticipated wait, once the large parties began ordering. A great suggestion. And, even though we arrived earlier than normal for a Sunday, and received the breakfast, rather than the brunch, menus, our server and the kitchen staff kindly honored our requests for brunch items.
It was the Holiday Season and South Bend had a six-inch snowfall. Lovely window winter scenes. This place will be impossible to get reservations at certain University of Notre Dame events, but our Saturday night in early December was quite comfortable, and the food was great.
Nestled in the Morris Inn on the beautiful campus of Notre Dame, Sorin's delivers in every category. Food is consistently excellent and the wait staff is superior, especially Juan. Highly recommend.
Good for a hotel restaurant, especially in South Bend. We had a very good server.
We took a visiting job candidate for breakfast. It was excellent......lots of creative choices and was much enjoyed by all who attended. Thanks!
Only two tables in the place the whole night and it took 1.25 hours to get our food which was ice cold, and I ordered a rare steak and got well done.
Delightful ambience and excellent food in the lovely Morris Inn in the middle of Notre Dame campus. Valet parking is a godsend on this parking deficient campus.
Have dined at Sorin's many, many times since the 1960’s. It has been beautifully updated but the food and service quality has gone down as the food prices have risen considerably. Undercooked yet dry chicken breast, nicely cooked but unseasoned salmon, pumpkin “risotto” was more of a bland rice pudding on this occasion. Entrees are served with no accompaniment with extra charges for any side dish or sauce under the guise of tailoring your own meal. We were disappointed in what was once a favorite place to dine.
I have never had a bad meal or bad experience at Sorin as I visit at least once a
year during the football season (twice this year). As an exception, this night the
service was very slow and I was pleased that it was noticed and a drink on the
house was offered and accepted.
Quality food and service at Notre Dame - very nice alternative to more noisy and crowded options. We clebrated our daughter's birthday at brunch on Sunday after mass at the Basilica. Service was really smooth, thoughful and efficient. Sorin's is always a good choice.
Wonderful experience. Professional and courteous waitress.
Wonderful service and even better food! As usual, Sorin's does not disappoint.
The hostess gave us three menus and I had to hail a waiter for a fourth. Two of us had scallops with risotto. Both were served cool. Did not measure up to their ratings.
