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 thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Sorrento's. Our server, Hillary, was fabulous - she was friendly, knowledgeable and a great asset for the restaurant. The wine and food were amazing, and capped off by the beautiful view. Thank you!

Love Sorrento’s and always have dinner there when in Chelan. However disappointed to see a few items no longer on the menu such as the caprese salad and pesto prawns which now you can only get with linguine. For those who like to skip pasta it is a tough choice since the prawns have always been my favorite. Views there are spectacular and overall ambeiance is wonderful

Food was look, spaghetti tasted like ragu. It was my wife's birthday and I specified in the Note 2 have Chardonnay available because that was her favorite. When we got there it was crossed off of the menu because it was sold out, disappointed there was no other white wine that she enjoyed. Service was excellent and attentive. The sun was setting and someone continue to play with the sunshade which caused the sun to beat down on our table making it uncomfortably hot and in the eyes.

Such a gorgeous venue to eat at and stroll freely around. The food does not disappoint. The staff is always anticipating and fulfilling your needs. Their wine was so delicious. As a local, I’d suggest it to anyone for a fine dining experience.

It was a gorgeous setting to have lunch with girlfriends. The food was wonderful as was the wine. The server was newer, but she did a wonderful job and had a great personality. Two things would have improved our visit would have been an umbrella for a little shade in then garden and a quicker check out process. It took a long time to pay before leaving

Host did not acknowledge the reservation or the special occasion. Mentioned it to the host and the server but nothing. Front house staff seemed unsure of themselves and only engaged with locals. Shows poor training by front house manager. It was our 31st Anniversary and the first restaurant that did nothing about it. The wine was excellent. We’ll go to the winery but not the restaurant unless there are significant changes. We felt bad for the staff as it appeared there leaders did not prepare the for success in service.

Food, service, & wine was great. Our only complaint would be the moving of tables and chairs. We were the last table in the restaurant and they started sitting up for an event while we were finishing up our meal. Dragging tables & chairs around the restaurant and right near where we were sitting. It felt like they were trying to push us out even though the restaurant was still considered open.

We had Sunday Brunch celebrating our 40th birthday’s. We were the first to arrive, so we were able to select our table. On this snowy occasion we sat next to the fireplace. The service was good, everyone was friendly. Sadly, the variety was a little lacking for brunch and the portions were not great... I ate everything on my plate and really could have eaten more (and I’m a smaller lady), but brunch usually replaces breakfast and lunch so I expect larger portions. Overall, 4 stars because I left ready to head to another meal.

Once again Sorrento's came through with a great experience, food was very good and timing of meals was perfect; we were there with two grandchildren ages 10 and 8 for two and a half hours of enjoyment. We were fortunate enough to be there on an evening with live music; it was a wonderful experience, the grandchildren just loved it; we went through some extra bottles of wine and just enjoyed the music, atmosphere and food.

The food was good and so was our server. I am disappointed in the restaurant because I specifically put on the reservation that this was a birthday dinner for both my daughter and husband. They did nothing to it knowledge either. Never mentioned it or said anything. My daughter mentioned that it was her birthday the next day only because she is so young and was excited. The server looked surprised and said oh that’s nice we will give you a free dessert. It truly was a birthday dinner for my husband but because it was close to my daughter‘s birthday I put both of them together. I was very disappointed in this they could have done something or at least acknowledged it
