It decent overall for food and service but there were multiple flies constantly around our table which completely spoiled our experience. Food isn’t amazing for the price. Service is very good. Enjoyed the bread.

One entree delicious. Pasta dis, pasta undercooked and sauce like a broth with little flavor rather than a delicious sauce coating the exterior of each ravioli.
They did not offer me another entree, nor to remove from bill...I did not ask but shall not return.

Note, the address is not correct on the Open Table listing, we had to call while looking for restaurant.

We have been to Sorrento at least half dozen times over the last number of years. Tonight we had a delightful evening - our servers and staff made the evening special.

Had the tasting menu, and my wife a pasta, but they accommodated us so together we could share some of the tasting menu and did a great job with timing my wife's pasta.

All the food was top notch. Wine was excellent. Just overall a lovely evening

The depth of flavor in the dishes here is breathtaking. Lots of great food in Houston, but Sorrento’s food is exceptional. We had the chef’s tasting menu for two: WOW. Excellent service (thank you, Sergio!), elegant atmosphere. Lovely for a date; quiet and romantic. I’m still stunned by the wonderful experience we had.

The lobster bisque was excellent, as were the Sea Scallops, and Creme Brulee. Attentive and friendly waiter and entire staff. Enjoyed the piano player's music, the dim lighting, and overall atmosphere of the restaurant. I'd suggest dressing nicely; not necessarily a tie but dressy business casual definitely.

My husband and I explored the Museum of Natural Science for seven hours so instead of driving 45 minutes home we decided to stop for dinner someplace in Houston. We found Sorrento on OpenTable and saw that it had 4 1/2 stars so we decided to give it a try. The service was very good. Our waiter was friendly. We both had the arugula and Gorgonzola salad to start. I asked to have the Prosciutto replaced by Gorgonzola cheese. There were two small pieces of Gorgonzola cheese, two small pieces of fig, and two pecan halves in my salad. Although it was tasty, there wasn’t all that much in it. My husband had lasagna and I had sage We selected a Cabernet that was $12 a glass. I guess I’m spoiled because I can find great bottles of wine between 12 and $25 for an entire bottle. I realize there’s a large mark up on alcohol but $25 a glass seems a bit high to me. I’m of Italian descent so I am very picky about Italian food. We felt it was pretty good but not good enough to go back again.

Always a great Italian dining spot in the Montrose area. Food here is homemade and always very good. It was obvious our server was very new as he missed some usual "cues" regarding our dinner, but nothing too bad. Overall a very good meal. Always is here.

The service was meticulous and the food was extraordinary and delicious.
We had a small family gathering and were well taken care of.
The wine list was excellent and also the cocktails were refreshing.
There is a pianist who plays soft music in the background.
There is also valet parking.

We usually go to Sorrento on Christmas Eve and have thoroughly enjoyed it. The ambiance is lovely and puts one in the Christmas spirit.

However, this year, the menu was not up to par with the restaurant offerings. We did not really have a good choice of the foods we love at Sorrento. Last year we were accommodated when we asked for something that was not on the menu-- this year we were told it could not be done. This was unacceptable to us as we go to Sorrento for their varied menu and the option to choose the foods we enjoy. Unfortunately the items they chose to offer on the Christmas menu were not what we would usually order. If this continues next year, we will need a menu before we make a reservation.
