    From the time we walked in, we felt so well cared for. Service was above what we have come to expect. The food (two specials) was perfectly prepared. The piano music adds to the ambiance. This has always been one of our favorite restaurants, but we think they are getting even better.

    Started with the fabulous bread service, our favorites were the focaccia and sourdough. The Caesar salad is hard to beat, be sure to get freshly ground black pepper from their giant pepper mill. Steven did not steer me wrong with the veal scallopine piccata with melt in your mouth fresh pasta on the side. Capers, lemon butter, mushrooms - perfection! My husband had the short rib ravioli which is always a favorite. We love Sorrento’s!

    The foods were not great for the price that I paid. The restaurant was so hot inside. I never drink that much water when I am dinning in my life. The Caymus wine was not great because of the heat!!!! Valet parking was racist towards my family. Because we are Asian he said he is going to pick up the Toyota for us!!!! We have an Audi A7. This is not a joke!!!!

    Asked for patio reservations to be in a quiet area, but were seated practically in the lobby. Restaurant was much noisier than usual. Maitre de a bit dismissive. Offered bread once- usually offered 2-3 times here. Pushed to choose wine immediately after receiving menu. Not the usual experience here.

    The service is absolutely top notch. It reminded me of Europe where you can dine in peace. Expect 2 hours to complete meal with dessert. I had the Cesar salad, salmon with shrimp and rossetto, and apple tart with vanilla gelato for dessert. Wine was a riesling by the glass and latte with dessert.

    Thank you from participating in Houston Restaurant Weeks! We always take advantage annually of this great effort, dining with long time favorites, as well as a good excuse to try venues that are new to us. We very much enjoyed dining. The food and the service both were exceptional! Thank you!

    Sorrento's continues to be our favorite restaurant in Houston. The service is excellent - thanks, Fernando and his team. The food is delicious - try the mushroom risotto as a starter or the carpaccio, followed by the wild mushroom ravioli, the filet mignon, or the osso bucco as entrees. And the ambiance with live piano by Mark is simply excellent. If you cannot tell, we love this place, but make sure you make a reservation, as we are not the only ones that do.

    Restaurant was not crowded. It was quiet and intimate. I wish they added more lighting because I could barely see my food. I ordered through the Houston Restaurants Weeks menu. Got the Wild mushroom ravioli which was really good. The Filet Mignon was cooked perfectly. It was so tender and melt in your mouth. I loved the slightly sweet sauce. The only thing was it had a lot of capers on it which made the dish too fragrant so I had to scrape most of it off. It was overpowering the dish. Overall, great experience. Tried most of the desserts and they were so good! Had the Tiramisu but shared the rest of the other desserts with my family. We had a great night.
