Sorrento is one of those restaurants that you realize it's been a while since you've been to, so you decide that now's a good time to visit again. Once there, you realize what a fantastic place it is. The service is some of the best in the city, and the food is always excellent. I'll be back soon.

This is a great restaurant! Having the pianist play all evening, is a delight. The food is absolutely delicious - I had a melt-in-your-mouth sweet Seabass over wilted spinach. And, the bonus is, you can easily talk with people at your table, and hear them respond. We prefer to sit on the enclosed terrace, but anywhere is wonderful!

Friendly and classy restaurant with attentive service and well prepared and tasty food. Live piano adds nice ambiance. Staff makes you feel welcome and will add a little something for events being celebrated. I come back for private or business entertainment. A nice locale to add to your list of high end restaurants at a reasonable price. Great value and you don’t have to shout to carry a normal conversation with your guests.

Although the restaurant was quaint and not too noisy, our waiter seemed overly ambitious from the start to push us through our dinner.

I wish it were possible to give more than 5 stars because I would certainly give them to Sorrento. Everything about it is spectacular. It is our very favorite Houston restaurant. The service is attentive but never intrusive. Everything I’ve ever eaten is delicious, unique and beautifully served, and this time was no exception. The setting is beautiful. We were celebrating my daughter’s birthday and return home from college for Thanksgiving, and the restaurant surprised her with a decadent chocolate dessert and a birthday serenade! Thank you to Sorrento. Ten stars!!

My friend and I have been going there for years, the service is never anything but exceptional!!
Although we have been served by many of the waiters, Sergio is very special, fantastic does not describe him. He is just wonderful
The pianist is delightful and extremely talented
Truthfully I cannot say enough about this restaurant, it is one of my ultimate favorites

Birthday celebration for my partner. Great service. Excellent food. Had pre-planned special cocktails to be delivered to our table upon arrival. Perfect execution. Love the restaurant. Ambiance is awesome. Piano player is a special treat. Wonderful place for those special events that comes around couple times of the year.

We made our reservation online for 8:30. I assumed this would be plenty enough time to eat before they closed at 10 or 10:30, as the last available seating was 8:45/9. We ordered & ate quickly when it seemed like they were closing early.

The staff was great, food was great, but I suppose next time we're in Houston we'll go on a busier night. I almost felt like we were a burden to staff trying to get out of there.

There were two other tables that had sat down after us. The bartender started spraying for pests shortly after we received our entrees. It was quite strange.

I'd go back for sure--the risotto appetizer was fantastic. But I'd make sure we went around 6/6:30.

My husband and I love going out to dinner. He took me to Sorrento for my birthday and I loved the Diver Scallops. The one thing we both hated was the table we were seated at. It was right next to the exterior wall. My husband literally was having a hard time cutting his lamb chop because he kept hitting the wall with his elbow. Overall, I would go there again but only with a better table.

Treated two out of town guests to a lovely Brunch at this centrally located, first-rate Italian Restaurant. Every detail was perfect: from the seating in the art-filled, table-clothed entry room to the attentive, soft-spoken service. Two of us had the butternut squash ravioli for our meal; one of us had a 3-course dinner; and, one had micas. Somehow, the staff figured out a way to stage all four orders such that we all finished at the same time.

Probably some of the best meals I’ve had anywhere. Wish I had remembered to take pictures. Risotto is delicious, scallops and sea bass have all been outstanding. Can’t wait to return to try more from the menu. Great wine list and an incredibly attentive, without being intrusive, wait staff. “Qui mangiamo molto, molto bene! Delizioso!” Which means in Italian, Here we eat very, very well! Delicious!

The ambiance is very nice. It was certainly nice to hear a piano and not a big-screen television blaring a sports game. I had the risotto with the salmon and shrimp. I have to say the little shrimp in the sauce were a turn-off though the dish was tasty, but that "cheapened" it and I didn't expect that for the prices you charge. Our waiter was great, very pleasant and attentive without being intrusive, which was really nice; you have very well-trained staff.

We go to Sorrentos often and always love it. We are greates by name, they always remember my food allergy and the food is always consistently fabulous. I love the pano player and he even remembers what songs we like. Our only less than perfect experience was our waitress. She was not very knowledgeable but came off as a know it all. She corrected my husband about wine and glass placement and she was wrong. Usually the wait staff there is very experienced and knowledgeable. I will make sure we don’t have Madeline in the future because otherwise everything was perfect.
