Lunch was an outstanding, elegant experience. I along with another guest ordered the business lunch (a value) starting with soup/salad, choice of entree, and a delicious dessert.
Food was delicious and service outstanding.

Always a great place to enjoy a romantic dinner. Service was as good as it gets. This was our first elegant dinning since the restaurants reopened. They made us feel very welcome and safe from the moment we arrived. My wive had the Chilean Seabass. Absolutely the best she has ever had as she let me try a taste. Sergio was our waiter. He has waited on us in the past and once again gave us great service. I would also highly recommend the apple tart with vanilla gelato and a nice Italian coffee to finish the night.

The food, service and ambiance of Ristorante Sorrento is compellingly wonderful and elegant. Despite their careful compliance with social distancing and sanitation, this dining experience remains uplifting and memorable. Please frequent this venue often to save this stellar restaurant.

Thank you for reopening, management of Sorrento. We missed you. Now to the food - as always, the best Italian food possibly on this side of the Atlantic. Everything that we tried on the menu was delicious - carpaccio, lobster bisque, and my favorite, the risotto starters, followed by the mushroom ravioli, veal osso buco, and salmon, finished off with the bread pudding. The wine list is fantastic. But above all is Fernando's wonderful service, together with the rest of the crew, and Mark's most excellent piano in the background.

If you have not tried Sorrento yet, well, I am so sorry for your loss. If you are reading this, then you are not dead and you still have a chance of fixing the errors of your ways- book a table today and go dine in style.

Thanks very much once again, Fernando and all.

First visit for us. Service was friendly and helpful but not overbearing or pushy. Food flavors were very good, perhaps best Italian we have had in a very long time. Portions were just right. From appetizer, salad thru dessert the overall experience was tops.

What a treat! This was our first dinner out since the 'pandemic' closed down all the restaurants and Sorrento did not disappoint. We had a lovely corner table and our servers were so friendly and helpful. The food was fantastic, Branzino filet and Pasta Pescatore were both done to perfection. We are so happy we went!
Only one issue - the Cosmopolitan I ordered tasted more like a Shirley Temple - MUCH too sweet too much grenadine I think.

The service was incredible; our waiter was attentive to our needs before we even recognized them ourselves. The pianist was skilled and created an inviting atmosphere. The food was delicious and perfectly portioned. It’s definitively a place to add to your list.

Sorrento has always been a favorite for many years now, and the consistency of the wonderful food along with the wait staff is outstanding. It has been and always will be a favorite of mine. I have never had anything while dining at Sorrento that was not fresh, deliciously prepared, and beautifully served.

Always enjoy getting the wine room for an ad hoc private dining experience. The bread platter is always a treat, ad the mushroom risotto tossed in the giant cheese wheel table side never fails to impress. Amazing service as alway and the Branzino blew me away.

My wife and I had a date night at the MFAH and dinner at Sorrento Restaurant. Everything about our evening at the restaurant was great - we shared a very nice Pino Grigio; the mushroom risotto was very good as was my stuffed mushroom appetizer and my wife's Caprese Salad. We both ordered the special fish - Branzino and it was very tender and flavorful. At the end the evening we ordered the Chocolate Souffle dessert and said we would split it. When. It arrived it was in two espresso cups - two individual servings! Simply delicious! We highly recommend Sorrento's and will continue to frequent the establishment!

We have been here numerous times and are noting a decline in service. Throughout our dinner plates were not removed, drinks poured into new one, glasses not removed, etc. The food remained good and the piano music wonderful. There is a need to gather wait staff and support staff and have refresher on server techniques.

Service was good. Food was not. It was a prefixed Valentine’s Day menu with a ton of different options. When we received our food you could tell it was in the oven or under a heat lamp for an extended period of time. There was a baked crusted film over the mashed potatoes and the steak was extremely over cooked. Disappointing to say the least
