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.

Went here for my anniversary dinner. Despite the fact that I called ahead and was assured the menu was super flexible and the chefs could make something, there was one option that could be manipulated into meeting my dietary restrictions and it was noodles in olive oil..... The place was beautiful and the people were kind but honestly, I wish I had not gone here.

The dining experience is simply wonderful. The “glass” dining room, the views, wine, and the food combine for a sublime place to enjoy life with friends.

Everything was great, except they ran out of bread! That made us sad. Everything else was good as usual though.

Everything we ordered, from the tomatoe bisque, to the rack of lamb to the butterscotch dessert was prepared to perfection !

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!

Decent dinner. I had pasta cabonerra which was a biit dry. Other dishes were good. Ambiance kind of like a food hall. Service was very attentive. View was great.

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.
