Italian
Sorrento’s Ristorante at Tsillan Cellar’s owner, Dr. Bob Jankelson, admits that the food of Italy captured him before he developed his interest in wine. Dozens of teaching trips to Italy instilled an appreciation of Italian cuisine paired with food friendly wine shared with friends and family. The same meticulous attention to detail evident in Tsillan Cellars stunning Italian architecture and grounds, transfers to a kitchen that brings world class dining to the shores of Lake Chelan. In winter, the inviting Italian fireplace and panoramic views of Lake Chelan and snow clad mountains blend with award winning food and wine to leave indelible memories. Outstanding ambiance, food, wine and service--- four reasons Sorrento’s Ristorante at Tsillan Cellars was named OpenTable Top 100 Scenic Restaurants in America in 2014. We were named WA State Winery of the Year 2020 by Wine Press Northwest! We look forward to your visit.

Tracy, our server, was spot on and managed our dinner with first class service, grace and efficiency. Tracy was a great corporate story teller at the end of the evening. We now know the exciting positive history of the winery and restaurant.

A great evening!

Beautiful restaurant with a killer view. The wine selections are a bit limited because of their connection with Tsillan Cellars winery, which they exclusively offer. The food menu was quite complete with a wide price range and our meals were very well prepared.

Highly recommended but not so wonderful as we had hoped. Beautiful place but food expensive and not as good as it could have been.. Rack of lamb overcooked; beet salad almost devoid of beets; chicken parm tough and bland. Butterscotch dessert gluey and overly sweet. Other desserts unimaginative--the usual cheesecake or flourless choc cake. Server disappeared for long periods. Not busy so what the heck? Main course delivered by a busboy when we were just starting salad. Dessert took 20 min to appear although it clearly just came out of the fridge. Good wine but never offered a second glass. Not offered dessert until we asked. Never offered coffee.

A beautiful restaurant with a spectacular lake view! I had the filet and it was on of the best steaks I have ever had. My husband had the seafood pasta and said it was delicious. It was wonderful from start to finish.

The ambience and views are spectacular. The staff is amazing. However, the wine was just ok IMO, and the food was expensive and not great.

Mother’s Day brunch was spectacular at Sorento’s. Not that we expected anything less! Frank, our favorite waiter, stopped by to see how we were, even though we weren’t in his section. Dr. Bob came by also, it is always a joy to talk to him. He so full of enthusiasm about Chelan Valley Wines. Wonderful weather, food, wine, and my beautiful wife!

Best steak I have ever had. Willing to adjust our meal for dietary needs. Found a bottle of Syrah to purchase that we had been told was sold out earlier in the day! Wonderful experience! That says a lot when you have “dated” for 44 years!

We had excellent service. Our glasses were never even half empty. Our waitress was funny and helpful and she had a great knowledge of wine. My mom said it was the best steak she's ever had and we've been all over the world. I loved the beet salad. Would definitely recommend again.

Great setting on a nice evening in Chelan. Enjoyed a nice flight of wines, as well as our tomato bisque soup. Our server was helpful and friendly! Then the main courses arrived. The veal chop was tough, chewy, and tasteless. I thought the knife was dull, but nope! The pasta and clams was only okay, as the the pasta was dripping in olive oil and capers. The restaurant management knew from the previous day the veal chop was not acceptable but they served it anyway.
The restaurant did remove both items from our tab...appreciated! We did a wine tasting with a group the next day and it was very enjoyable.

Beautiful setting. I’d suggest sticking to a wine tasting with a light snack. We also stayed for dinner; that was so-so. Overall, the ambiance was amazing - the views, the sun, the tasty wine. However, the hostess at the restaurant was extremely unpleasant. The steak was over cooked (no pink) for medium. And the patio heaters were out of propane. Most everyone was very friendly and helpful, and the other meal was delicious (chicken parmigiana) , that overall it was a positive experience. But, we’ll stick with wine tasting only next time.

So happy to return to Sorrentos after such a long absence. The new chef is AWESOME. My Linguine Pescatore was the best I have ever had. Our server, Sandy, was perfect for us, a sense of humor, responsive, we enjoyed getting to know her, too. We are Wine Club members so we knew we would love the Bellisima Rosa! Thank you, Sorrentos and Dr. Bob!
