Great service but the food was marginally warm. I had also asked for some roses for the table when I made the reservation on Open Table. A disappointing 37th anniversary overall.

Everything about this restaurant is great. The valet didn’t even give a ticket, just remembered.
The food is what you would expect and the service was perfect.
A great wine list.

Went to Sorrento to celebrate my birthday and they definitely make it special. Sergio our server and the rest of the team, just went above and beyond to make us feel at home and happy about our experience. We will be going back!

From food to service the entire evening was better than expected. We will return when back in Houston. Entree was huge and delicious! Veal meatballs were the best ever! And their wine list was good!! More Italian Pinot Grigio perhaps. But the one I had was okay!

An office colleague and I came here for lunch. The service in every way was outstanding--courteous and timely. (Even the valet had our car waiting for us as we walked out the front door!)

The food was quite good. I enjoyed the red snapper, which was cooked just right, and my colleague enjoyed the wild mushroom ravioli, which were of very high standard. I enjoyed my "Mediterranean salad", which was had more citrus than I would have expected, but it worked well. The salad tasted clean, with just the right amount of acidity to it.

In all, Sorrento is a higher-end Italian restaurant that serves reasonably sophisticated dishes with great service. I highly recommend it.

We had out of town guests who have multiple restaurant experiences.

They were thrilled with the quality of the food and the general sense of hospitality we experienced.

As always, it was truly a treat to go to Sorrento's.

The egg yolk raviolo (you only get one) appetizer was delicious, but the impressive food experience stopped there. The pasta and meatballs dish had a bitter, tomato-pasty sauce, and the veal meatballs were generally flavorless and unappetizing. The branzino was fresh and prepared clean, and generally tasted good, but was full of bones which made eating it a miserable experience and required a LOT of unappealing food and bone removal from the diner's mouth while eating. Not a good look when dining with friends. The other dishes were rich beyond enjoyment, unfortunately. Entree portion sizes were large, but when you don't enjoy it, it's just more of a bad thing to deal with. Despite how much we enjoyed the appetizer, we will not return.

Sorrento might be the best Italian restaurant I have ever eaten at. The food was amazing and the staff was incredible. We came for a graduation dinner and our server, Jorge, took great care of us. All of our needs were met before we could even ask. He even offered to take photos of our group and when another guest showed up late he asked for our camera to retake the photos. Outstanding service by Jorge! We will definitely be returning soon.

I have been to Sorrento's twice before, and this was the third time. I do not think I will be back because of the small flies each time I am there. If there are flies while we eat then I cannot imagine what is in the kitchen. The service is wonderful and food is delicious.
