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.

We booked reservations a few weeks in advance since they book up quickly on the weekends. I have not been there for many years. From the greeting at the door through the service at dinner until we walked out at the end it was a great experience. Wonderful service and food!

Another great meal at Sorrento’s! Went with friends and kids. Every plate was empty at the end of dinner, so all of us left full and happy!

Too many bachelorette parties….the noise level was very bad…made the dining experience unpleasant. The food was good and the service was good but I won’t go back unless I can eat outside.

Our lunch was outstanding, and the staff very accommodating. We were having issues with yellow jackets and the staff quickly resolved the problem. The view from the patio is just amazing and their gardens and pond was a great area for the kids to be entertained.

Steak was undercooked and then waited over 20 minutes to have it returned overcooked, meanwhile my husband finished his meal before I had even started mine. Wine glasses sat empty without being asked if we wanted more. Wait staff spent a lot of time visiting with customers instead of waiting tables. Very disappointing experience

It was a cloudy and somewhat rainy night so eating inside limited the view

Everything else was wonderful- not cheap but a great meal in Chelan!

This is our absolute favorite restaurant in Chelan and we come many times throughout the year.

This past weekend we were there - among the first of three tables to be seated and when we asked the hostess if we could eat outside versus inside we were met with a bit of resistance at first saying they were short staffed and it wasn't that servers turn to be seated. I worked in the industry for many years and this is just not the way your address the situation.

We were allowed to sit outside and our actual server was wonderful and always the view makes up for any shortcomings!

Great food but tainted by poor service. The waitress "forgot to submit our order"; even though she takes the order on a mobile tablet. Great technology, bad operator.
Here's the facts ... We made OT reservations a week in advance, with notice that it is a special birthday for my wife. We have a table of 4. Spend nearly $400. We arrive at 6pm, and leave at 8:26pm.

We are lifelong local residents, but will no longer recommend it to our friends who visit the Chelan area. We have other options.

Sorrento's was fabulous as always! The pork chop I ordered was delicious! My husband and friends raved about the rack of lamb, the cioppino, and the linguine il pescatore! The Tsillan wine was top notch as always!

Our first time to Sorrento and it did not disappoint. My dining partner had the lamb and said it was absolutely perfect. My seafood linguine was one of the best I’ve had. Started with clams and bruschetta and highly recommend both. Tiramisu also was one of the best I have had. Look forward to going there again on my next trip.

A beautiful venue with excellent wines. Prices are competitive with other nice restaurants. The only issue was some of the later diners had to eat in the tasting room/gift shop because they overbooked the main dining room. The strong winds drove everyone inside when they expected many people would be wanting to dine on the patio.

This place is absolutely beautiful. We enjoyed a glass of wine in the beautiful grass patio overlooking the beautiful vines, orchards and lake.
We were seated on time for our reservation. The food was just okay. The salad was plain and dry. The complimentary bread basked dip was a little off. The steak was good but, the sides were sparse. The chicken Parmesan was SUPER dry. I was left needing more sauce. The dessert was tasty. I would give it another chance do to the location and ambiance.
