This restaurant went above and beyond with exceptional service and food. However, what really set this dining experience apart was the fact that they made us feel exceptional. They turned our perfect day into even more perfect day. Thank you for everything Sorrento.

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.

We went last Friday for our anniversary. It was our first time and we had a great experience. The foods are all tasty and over our expectations. Even the business lunch has fairly large portion. The waiter is caring and friendly. My wife is so impressed and we have decided to come back soon. Thank you!

The food and service was outstanding. The staff is friendly and professional. The ambiance is romantic especially with the piano player. I had the Chilean sea bass which was cooked to perfection and my husband enjoyed one of the specials of a trio of lamb chop, filet of beef and shrimp which was delicious as well. This remains our favorite restaurant in Houston.

Great restaurant that must be a bit of a secret given the small size of the lunch crowd. My mushroom ravioli was devine as was the bread pudding for dessert. Wonderful atmosphere for a business lunch or romantic dinner.

We enjoyed the great food and exceptional service that we have know that we can count on from Sorrento’s. The beautiful live piano music is an added bonus. Sorrento’s has been a favorite of ours for close to ten years. We love trying new restaurants and do so frequently but, Sorrento’s remains at the top of our list.

The service was great. We were seated near the piano and we were able to easily converse and enjoy the music. The food was great. Three of us had the lasagna and it was excellent. My husband has a veal dish - gluten free that was delicious. The fresh bread selection was fun too. We all want to go back and try additional menu items. It was a very enjoyable evening.

This visit we thoroughly enjoyed our starter, the Red Beet and Orange Salad W/ Seared Goat Cheese and our second course Braised Beef Short Rib. Finished with a taste of both chocolate and grand mariner souffle. The meal was simply fantastic. Great Ambiance, Great Cuisine, yet the Service really made the meal. Thank you to our waiter, George, and the rest of the Sorrento staff.
