This is the perfect place for any celebrations/ dinning.
The food is A+, ambience is very nice and the piano music is extra added to the lovely dinner.I could request a song and the front desk lady was very helpful.
It was my husband birthday and we had a great time and service in Sorrento.
I highly recommend this restaurant and would love to go back.(they have vegetarian options too )
Enjoy! Thanks Sorrento and staff

Sorrento's impressiveness starts when the staff greets you like a long-time friend. The 3-foot-diameter bread tray loaded with many kinds of sweet and savory pastries plus the whole roasted garlic with oil and vinegar plate make you feel like a hero from the start. The elegant presentations of the first courses, robust and flavorful main courses, and colorful deserts with the friendly and romantic atmosphere (live piano at night!) make Sorrento my go-to special and any-occasion extension of my dining room because every time I come here it makes me feel right at home.

I have dined here 3 times. Once for lunch, twice for dinner. It never disappoints. Perfect spot for a cozy date. The live piano music is a nice touch. Sorrento is a Montrose gem.

Sorrento continues to set the bar high for food quality and service in Houston. There is no restaurant that does it better. Food is excellent, service is impeccable without being pretentious. The table side risotto is a must try item. Great wine selection, extensive menu selection and personalized service that is second to none. Sorrento remains a top 3 restaurant for me when in Houston.

Huge disappointment! I requested the same table at which I had met my fiance in 2018 in order to make a proposal of marriage. I explained how important this was to me. They promised I could have it. A few days before, I called and reconfirmed the importance of having my table, and again asked if this would be a problem. Again, I was confidently assured that the restaurant would be happy to accommodate my wishes for my special night. Shortly before I arrived, I learned that restaurant owner Abas Hussein had reconfigured the room to squeeze a few more tables into it and decided I did not need to have my special evening as I had planned. I was offered NO compensation for this—not a bottle of wine, not a dessert, not an extra bread stick. When the Chilean sea bass came out cold, they asked if I would like to "take it home with me" (I suppose to have someone ELSE cook it properly). They did not offer me a properly-cooked entree. And this was all on top of the last disaster I had had at Sorrento, when--while I was paying for my $800.00 meal and helping my 89-year-old friend to her car, Sorrento TOWED MY FRIEND'S CAR (because it was 10:15 PM and they tow "everything in the lot" at 10:00 PM). On that occasion, too, Sorrento offered me no compensation. The quality of both food and service at Sorrento have deteriorated badly since this became one of my favorite Houston restaurants some years ago. I will NOT BE GOING BACK. If you go, do not expect to find a restaurant that has any pride in its offerings, or who will "make it good" for the client when something goes wrong. They will take your money, pat you on the back, and say, "We don't really care if you ever come back."

Set menu is always an issue for the V day table. Price is more than most others for the same type. Meat had to be sent back because it was too tough to chew. Portions were very small.

One entree delicious. Pasta dis, pasta undercooked and sauce like a broth with little flavor rather than a delicious sauce coating the exterior of each ravioli.
They did not offer me another entree, nor to remove from bill...I did not ask but shall not return.

Note, the address is not correct on the Open Table listing, we had to call while looking for restaurant.

We have been to Sorrento at least half dozen times over the last number of years. Tonight we had a delightful evening - our servers and staff made the evening special.

Had the tasting menu, and my wife a pasta, but they accommodated us so together we could share some of the tasting menu and did a great job with timing my wife's pasta.

All the food was top notch. Wine was excellent. Just overall a lovely evening
