The Pepper crusted Ahi Tuna over lemon risotto was outstanding! The Lobster bisque first course was creamy and smooth. The raspberry sorbet was a sublime finish. Great summer lunch.

Sorrento is old style Italian. The service was very efficient and professional. The breads are terrific, although they only offer them once. The lobster bisque was thin and lacking flavor, and the risotto with my scallops was bland.

Sorrento continues to be our favorite restaurant. Fernando's service, along with the rest of the crew, is absolutely fantastic. We feel like we are part of the family, from the welcome hugs to getting kicked out the door at closing. Of course, the food is delicious - as a starter, you must try the mushroom risotto, and anything on entree list is great (we had mushroom ravioli, veal osso bucco, and italian sausage torchetti). Although we were tucked away a little, we could still hear Mark's fantastic live piano music. If you really want to pamper yourself, just make a reservation and get to Sorrento as quickly as possible.

Food and ambiance was superb. But service could have been better. We felt rushed. Everything was done in 40 minutes. We will come back, and hopefully will have a better service. May be booking earlier time may help. Thank you.

We sat in the Sun Room (the room on the west side of the restaurant), so it was a little quieter than the rest of the restaurant. The food was, as always, outstanding, from appetizers to entrees to desserts--absolutely perfect. Our appetizers (party of six) included Escargots and Wild Mushroom Risotto. The entrees included the Branzino, Osso Buco and Veal Scallopini. Shared desserts included the Creme Brulee and the Bread Pudding, which received rave reviews.

In spite of a full restaurant, service was excellent. We only wish the bread service would be offered more than once, as the bread is delicious.

We've been to Sorrento a few times and like before, all the dishes we ordered were excellent during this visit. A table next to us was very... shall we say... boisterous, often-time drowning out the pianist (who calmly and confidently played through all the noises). Service was very good, except for a short period when our waiter disappeared after pouring our wine and serving us our appetizers. He reappeared later though and was very attentive for the rest of the evening. He even called the valet ahead and had our car ready just as we walked out the door.

We celebrated our anniversary at Sorrento. It was perfect. A romantic setting including live piano music. Our waiter, Fernando, was attentive, friendly and professional. He graciously accommodated our desire to split dishes in the most appropriate manner for each dish.
The best part was the food itself. Immediately upon seating we were our choice of various breads which could be dipped in the spiced olive oil. Each dish seemed better than the previous dish. We started with lobster tortelloni with lemon cream sauce and caviar. Deliciously rich. More than one person would want to eat as a starter. Our next course was a sublime veal picatta with garnish of artichoke heart and haricot vert and a side of homemade torchetti pasta. The sauce was substantial but not heavy. We closed with coffee and double chocolate cake topped with vanilla gelato and praline sauce. Along with the excellent food were a nice collection of wines by the glass at reasonable prices.
Sorrento is not inexpensive, but unlike many upper echelon restaurants it is well worth the price. We could not have been more pleased.
