Sorrento Ristorante Italiano Ratings and Reviews
We had a lovely meal and experience for our holiday team lunch. Since we were coming from work in different cars after different meeting endings, our arrival time was a little scattered and our server kept us busy and happy with roasted garlic and bread then appetizers until we all arrived. The meals were all very good (two of our eight were thrilled with the lasagna and two of us were quite happy with the halibut, one raved about the buffalo pizza, another about the lobster tortellini) and everyone said we HAD to get the calamari and crabcake appetizers that we loved so much last year. It definitely did not disappoint.
Enjoyed dinner with great friends. Three out of four of us were satisfied with dinner. One person had lobster with pasta. She could not cut lobster....it was extremely tough.....over cooked. When asked how our meal was, she said “the lobster is too tough, I can hardly cut it”. A second person came around and asked about dinner. Was told the same thing. When we received the check, she was charged for a lobster she could not eat. Told the waiter and his response....”the owner said to charge you for the lobster”. Really?????? I asked the waiter to send the owner to our table. He never came to our table. Awkward. What owner does not come to your table to hear of a major concern? Needless to say, our evening was uncomfortable and we walked away saying we may never return. We still tipped our waiter well.
Really enjoyed the day there. Celebrated my moms birthday. Will echo others, regardless if you are a regular or you're a first timer, you are treated like a celebrity. From the valet parking to the hostess to our waitress, we were made to feel like VIPs of this place. This is my 6th or 7th time here.
The interior was decorated warmly for the Christmas season, and the lady that played the piano was wonderful, really giving it an upbeat and cheery feel inside.
Our waitress was well groomed, polite, friendly and knew the menu forwards and backwards. She was always attentive without being overbearing. The two young men that serve water and bread are professional and friendly as well. Really makes for a pleasant dining experience.
The menu is vast and because it was Sunday, we took advantage of the 3 course special. This is a fantastic value and you will definitely not leave there hungry.
The food was good, but not great. The Sea Bass may have been around a little too long, and the spinach was slightly over seasoned. The other dishes, the Chicken Rollatini and Osso Bucco Ravioli were spot on and very tasty.
The outstanding service will make up for the slightly off food. Don't get me wrong, it wasnt bad, just a little disappointing because everything else is so top notch here.
We will definitely visit this place again.
Sorrento Ristorante Italiano was a pleasant surprise. Just walking in I could tell it would be special. The ambiance, piano, food and service were excellent.
My wife and I started by splitting the Lobster Tortelloni with Lemon Cream Sauce and the Arugula, Fig, Gorgonzola and Candied Pecans Balsamic Vinaigrette salad. This was my only mistake. I should have had my own.
I had the Veal Osso Buco and my wife, the Double Lamb Chop Stuffed with Goat Cheese. Both were excellent.
A special call out to Alejandro, our waiter. His wine suggestion and service were excellent. I don't really know what could have been better.
I don't ordinarily give five star ratings because there can almost always be improvements. But in this case I feel the rating is deserved. We will definitely be coming back.
We have been to Sorrentos several times and this restaurant never fails to impress us. The food was delicious; the service was great, not too fast nor too slow; the noise level was acceptable for a full restaurant. We will definitely come back as there several dishes that we still need to try.
Our dinner was excellent. Service was complete and attentive. Sergio was our waiter. Food was very good. I had Chilean sea bass and it was delicious. Done to perfection, served over spinach. Everyone at our table said their food was delicious with no complaints. Live piano music made the evening relaxing.
We very much enjoyed our HRW lunch here. The bread basket was such a nice touch. Our waiter, Alex, was most attentive as was the rest of the staff. Beautiful restaurant and delicious food.
On a side note, the parking. The valet parking had the best spots up front, and there wasn't much available parking in front of the restaurant unless you used valet since other businesses had signs in front of their doors for customer use only. Remember when the valet used to take your car and park it elsewhere when the spots near the restaurant were filled? The parking would be the only thing from keeping us from coming back next time.
The G-Friend and I just love this place. The food is great, the service is great and the piano player is great. We always sit in the main dining room where the piano is. The mussel appetizer - the mussels are the largest and plumpest you'll ever find in any restaurant.
Disappointed with food, service and ambiance. Although seated on time for our reservation, it took forever to get menus and for food to be served. There were way too many fruit flies and other flies buzzing around and one ended up in my glass of wine (although replaced with a fresh glass from the bar, it certainly was not the same wine as the bottle we had for the table). Food was served cool and was subpar. Manager never came over to check on the table even after expressing dissatisfaction. Will likely not return.
We have been enjoying Sorrentos for many years. The service and food were their usual excellence. This time we didn't even look at the menu as they had so many off menu specials that we simply did not need to see the regular menu which is always terrific too. We will return aga in and again I am sure.
This was my first time here. I went for Houston Restaurant Weeks and tried the special menu. The food I tried was all delicious. The service was ok, but when the hostess noticed I was looking for my server, she came over to find out what I needed and took care of it personally. It was nice to see the concern for patrons.
We were given a delightful dining experience during Houston Restaurant Week at Sorrentos. The waiter was very responsive and dedicated to making sure we were all taken care of. The food was absolutely fantastic and my whole family enjoyed a pleasurable get-together, able to visit together in an enjoyable venue!
