    Excellent meal. Our son started with the mussels and they were huge! He loved the broth they were prepared in. I started with the beef carpaccio and it was fabulous.

    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.

    I ordered the filet mignon medium, but it was definitely well-done. We had to wait about 30 minutes after our appetizers for the entree, so I didn't want to return the steak due to the fact that I was very hungry and didn't want to wait another long time. There was a pianist playing on a grand piano, but the noise was so loud we could not hear the piano. Ladies, having a good time doesn't mean demonstrating how loud you can scream.

    We were a party of 6 for dinner at Sorrento's and were given a nice large table in a separate room. Everyone enjoyed their food and wine and the service was very friendly and professional. We think this is one of Houston's top Italian restaurants.

    Arrived on time for 815p reservation but had to wait. Restaurant was loud and busy. Bartender was overwhelmed and yelling at staff. After being shown our table the waiter came over immediately, great service!!! The calamari was overcooked, sadly, but the rest of our dinner was superb! Glad I finally tried this restaurant but I don't need to return as there are so many other choices in Houston.

    Sorrento has always been one of our “go-to” restaurants for good food, great atmosphere, and caring service. Such was the case on our most recent visit, except for the Bronzino my companion and I shared, which was mushy, and grossly expensive. It will not stop us from returning.

    Beautiful intimate, restaurant in the heart of Montrose. It's a smaller restaurant so noise level was about 7 out of 10. The menu had a variety of dishes, and the cocktail/wine list was extensive. It's a very laid back, no-rush experience, with menus not brought to the table until you are ready. Our server was good, but not very personable. I had the Veal Medallions and my wife had Lobster Tortellini, both very good but not very large portions for the money. It's an upscale restaurant, so that's to be expected. My wife loved the cappuccinos and the Tiramisu. Overall a very nice experience and we would return again.

Had the sage ravioli the parmeson risotta lemon and one mushroom (the best anywhere) a tasting menu with pairings )( could have paired better) and the best Osso Bucco ever

    Ordered the business lunch. Salad and bisque were excellent as was the tuna. Oso buco ravioli was little heavy on the sauce but still very good. Excellent wait staff. Very good price for a three course lunch. Planning on returning to enjoy other business lunch offerings.

    Was a customer several times before COVID. During those visits Sorrento had been our favorite restaurant for any nice event. It’s website stated that it has a dress code of business casual. That is exactly what we were looking for. We were going out for or anniversary. As we drove up we noticed a family waiting at the valet for their car. What I assumed to be the dad was wearing a sleeveless Orlando Magic NBA jersey with gym shorts. The entire group was wearing tee shirts and shorts. We saw the same inside. 80% of the patrons were in shorts, blue jeans, tee shirts or other collarless shirts. The dining room was uncomfortably warm. I sweated through my shirt. Except for the food and service (our waiter Stephen was excellent) our experience was very disappointing. Sorrento use to be a place where you could get a little dressy and relax in a classy restaurant. Except for the food and service we might as well have been at semi fast food place aimed for very casually dressed families.

    Sorrento impressed once again and is one of the city’s top Italian restaurants. Try the tableside mushroom risotto (7/5!!) and the fabulous escargot (5.5/5) for appetizers. The crab cake is a little unorthodox in its preparation, but it is tasty (4.5/5)--just don't expect a standard crab cake. The scallop entree was (4.5/5) and the osso bucco entree was a (4.2/5) the night of, but skyrocketed in flavor to a (6.5/5) as reheated leftovers the next day!! My best-ever osso bucco!! The flavors with the impeccable bone and marrow mixed with the meat and sauce sent me over the moon. I think this extra flavor infusement may be impossible with fresh-cooked ingredients, but message me with any insights.
