About Sorrento's Ristorante
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.

Sorrento's Ristorante Ratings and Reviews
Service was great, food was good. View and overall feel of the experience is very nice. I had the pesto prawns and it didn’t disappoint but at $24 it should really have included the tiny starter salad. My salad for an additional $6 was about 1 cup of lettuce. Essentially making my meal a $30 pasta meal. 😳 We got a bottle of wine and desssert so we did enjoy our experience. We wouldn’t be back due to value. We paid our $145 bill and just felt underwhelmed.
I have had dinner there many times. We are in fact wine c!ub members so our general loyalty is to the winery which the restaurant is a part of. Our recent experience was one of disappointment with the variety and quality of the food being prepared at the restaurant. It seems as though the restaurant is resting on it's past success. It clearly needs to update the menu in my opinion and focus on better preparation.
I booked a birthday dinner on Open table and the restaurant called the next day to inform me that they had a private event that night but could move our reservation to the next night. I said fine and upon ordering they comped our wine for the inconvenience. Totally unexpected but so nice! Really the best dining in Chelan!
The food at Sorrento's was wonderful. Everything we ordered was well presented and had decent size portions. I ordered a rack of lamb and it was huge and delicious. There was a gentleman playing music on a keyboard and he did a nice job. It was somewhat difficult to hear him clearly. That may be due to his speaker system or the poor acoustics of the building. But he did get the crowd singing along on a few songs and that was fun. Wasn't very romantic if you were there for a date. We were there just to eat out with the family. Our waiter was nice and friendly, nothing extraordinary. Here's my problem.....the wine is horrible!! OMG! I would have thought that by the looks of this place the wine would be fantastic. Nope, not the case. We did not order the cheapest bottle either. In fact, the first bottle that was presented had gone bad (which happens, I get it) and was replaced. The second bottle was not much better. But, if you want some great food...go and bring your own wine!!
We ate there on two consecutive nights. The wonderful food and experience on the first night night convinced us to go back the next night. The food was fabulous, the atmosphere was great, and the service was wonderful. We would definitely go back there the next time we are in Chelan.
Our hopes were very high, but unfortunately this experience was really disappointing. Though the restaurant and winery are gorgeous, the service was really slow, and the food was nothing special. I know our aerver tried his best, but for fine dining, he was just not a good fit. He didn't try to engage us at all! Fortunately, prices weren't too high, or I would have been pretty upset about the overall experience.
I may go back for wine (amazing!) and appetizers, but probably not for dinner.
My Chicken Marsala was $28. It was a flat tasteless chicken breast on top of a bed of boring pasta. No mushrooms at all in dish! Very disappointing meal for the price. My husband and I were looking for an awesome meal with great ambiance. The fire place was burning so hot everyone was sweating. Our waiter knew nothing about wine...so he was no help in choosing a bottle.
Beautiful place but terrible eating experience.
Make a reservation! Not to be missed!
The food was excellent. The staff was attentive but not overbearing. The only thing that ruined an excellent experience was a large table of 12+ women who were having a "dinner/meeting". They were very loud and after their dinner there was clinking on glasses, followed by comments, then hooting and hollering engulfing the rest of the dining room. Our first table was just next to them, but we immediately requested a new table. Even sitting halfway across the room the noise was deafening. I'm sure the restaurant appreciated all the money they brought in, but it ruined it for other diners. One table next to them asked for their check when their food arrive and they were gone in about 10 minutes.
Our first visit to Sorrento's was fabulous! You really feel like you have arrived at a little bit of Tuscany. Service was very good. I have lots of allergies and they were totally ok with that. I chose the strawberry goats cheese salad and added some jumbo prawns which was delicious. My husband had the salmon which he also really enjoyed. Wine is also excellent and same price as the wineshop which was appreciated. Highly recommend, especially for a romantic dinner or classy lunch on the terrace.
