We went for the oysters and they were wonderful. Then my husband had the perfectly cooked calamari and I had the linguine with tomato. Perfect ! We love sitting at the bar.
Thank you,

Lovely neighbourhood spot, that never fails to please.
The oysters are always a big hit. The buttermilk soaked chicken was outstanding!

It's our 2nd time going to Sorrel Rosedale. Food is good as always, especially with their $1 oysters after 4pm. Everything was prepared fresh with just the right amount of flavour to balance between the sauce and the natural taste of the seafood.

This is a lovely little restaurant but it is quite expensive, considering the flavours didn't really stand out. There was really nothing wrong, just that for this price, we expected something a bit more unique to entice us to come back.

Our night at Sorrel was the best restaurant experience of my life! I brought my husband here for our date night because I liked how charming it appeared from the outside. The bustling ambiance and savoury aromas enticed us as we walked in. The service here is beyond your typical customer service experience; we were welcomed as we came in and made to feel like friends coming to dinner instead of customers. Our table took a few minutes to be set up for us and instead of the usual “thank you for your patience” speech synonymous with business places, we were offered delicious proseco and invited to sit at the bar. The food was truly a feast for the senses. As Caribbean natives, we were thrilled to be offered real seafood instead of the commercialized, farmed stuff you usually get. “I can taste the ocean!” he and I exclaimed repeatedly as we savoured every morsel. Their grilled calamari has changed my world forever!
The creme du la creme of our experience here is the people who work there. Everyone is genuinely happy to be there and it is reflected in their service. To say they were friendly and helpful would be an understatement. The owner hugged and chatted with us like we were friends at his dinner table, in his house. We’re so happy to have found this charming spot in the GTA.

Ravioli had very little lobster, just full of bisque and there was an extremely excessive amount of butter in the pasta. The scallops were a bit sandy for such a high price for the dish. The salad had no seasoning and was very bland.

A lovely restaurant and the service was excellent. Had a butternut squash soup that was literally tasteless, with no salt on the table. Main meal was very nice and the server was excellent.

Barry was our server again and he was his usual self: warm, welcoming, attentive and professional!! Excellent service.
Had the special goat cheese salad and it was fantastic. Have never had any he buttermilk fried chicken before so asked Barry for his recommendation and he said that people who order it the first will then always have it. He was bang on and I will do the same!!

We love Sorrel. We always have the $1.00 oysters and the grilled calamari. I have found the restaurant noisy sometimes - especially near the front windows - but we sat at a table near the back this time and it was much quieter. All the food is good, but their fish preparation is excellent. Staff is very friendly and efficient. We have never been disappointed.

The food was delicious and ambience great. I felt as though a bit rushed as the waiters attempted to clear our plates a few times before we finished our food while we were having a good time chatting with our friends. Otherwise it was an enjoyable night.

Sorrel never disappoints. The tuna tartare was among the best I’ve had anywhere, sea bass was perfectly cooked and the pasta was also delicious. Service is prompt, friendly and attentive. There is a very good wine list with some choices that will satisfy everyone. Nice location across the street from Scrivener Square in Rosedale/Summerhill. Not far from Summerhill station and there’s a Green P lot nearby too.
