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.

Sorrento has remained excellent in the service, ambiance, amazing food selections for it's entire 17 years! I highly recommend the Sunday brunch as my first time guests were very impressed and loved everything! Thank you for never changing the excellence of your beautiful Sorrento. My favorite...........

We came to show my mom & sister where my husband and I shared our first date & share many anniversaries. Unfortunately, we were sat directly next to a giant party In the back room making it extremely hard to talk to each other.

We go to Sorrento about twice a year. Sometimes just for drinks before dinner. It is one of the few places we know for piano music. Last night when the piano play ended his playing at 10 a regular customer played medley. He was still playing when we left 20 minutes later. Great place for birthdays or Valentine’s Day.

Ask for Sergio to be your waiter. After I mentioned to him that the bartender served me a so-so gin and tonic, he personally went to the bar and mixed me a great one!

The bread basket was dramatic in appearance but very below average quality. My wife's chicken was average to poor. My lamb chops were great. Souffle for dessert was very good.

The food here is amazing !!! From the appetizers to the desserts, it was all phenomenal. They have an amazing bread tray that they offer before the meal. Truly unique. Our server, Sergio, did a great job of making sure all our dishes were to our liking and recommended great desserts for the finish. Definitely one of the best Italian restaurants in Houston !!!

Great food and great service, as always. We sat in the side room this time, which is more quiet than the main dining room, but you can’t hear the piano player, which we enjoy. No biggie, all was great and appreciated.

I’ve been here on several occasions for the businessman’s lunch and always enjoyed it. This was my first time coming for dinner. I took my mom, who is hard of hearing. We had early reservations, and the restaurant wasn’t crowded. We were “assessed” by the owner (or manager) when we came in, who then spoke quickly to the hostess in Italian. We were seated in a room off the main dining room, at a table for two against a wall, behind a door, with the setting sun coming through the side of the window shade right onto our table. We were so far apart my mother could barely hear me. I ordered seared foie gras as an appetizer (a rare treat for me), and it was COLD and served on “toast” that was nothing but cold, mushy bread. I showed our waiter and asked him to let the chef know. The waiter came back and said the chef promised to make it better for me next time I come. Ummm, okay. The rest of the meal was just meh...the off-the-menu grilled branzino was too salty and the chocolate soufflé was dense. The check was $200 plus tip - which I’m used to paying for a nice meal out. But after I got home, the waiter called me on my cell phone (I guess he got my number from Open Table) and told me he accidentally put some of our items on someone else’s check. The customer noticed his mistake, and he needed to add them to my check...an additional $40. An overall low-class, low-quality experience. I won’t be going back, even for the businessman’s lunch.

Sorrento is one of our favorite restaurants! The food and service are always wonderful. The meal starts off so well with the passed bread tray - the cheese and anchovy bread is amazing! The roasted garlic and olive oil on the table is also a huge hit. The butternut squash ravioli was delicious and my friends loved their lasagna. Definitely a place to dine with friends and family!

Great service, great food, awesome experience!! Your wait staff is A1 in all books and is the epitome of what great service should be! We were there for my mother’s birthday and she couldn’t have had it any better according to her. I don’t recall our waiter’s name but we left him a couple of cupcakes for him to bring home to his wife. He was professional and took great care of us. We will most definitely be coming back soon!!!
