Great resto, with amazing service and excellent food.
Nice wine list, and $1 oysters after 4 PM are a nice and inexpensive treat.
Only issue is the poor harmonics of the dining area, which makes for amplified noise throughout the eatery. Tough to have a initimate tableside chat when you have to practically shout to be heard.
Still, in an area with many overpriced (and overhyped!) restos, Sorrel always manages to hit the mark and deliver a great dining experience. One of our go to faves....

Sorrel never fails! The food is always a solid hit and I LOVE the staff. They can not do enough to please and it's always done with a smile. You feel welcomed the moment you take your first step in the door.
We will continue to always make that a favourite for us.

This is our neighbor hood haunt and it is usually outstanding. This was one of those rare nights when things did not work perfectly..food orders got confused and there was a very long wait for our group of five to be served. Our waitress was apologetic, cordial and brought us some complimentary wine to make up for the glitch. We left happy and will return

So happy I ended up going with this location. The service was pretty top notch, the atmosphere (other dinners) where very, lets say.. niche. I felt a bit out of place, but who cares, the food is INCREDIBLE! Comparable to the likes of Paris restaurants. The Oysters! The Steak, The Duck. <- Cant go wrong. Honestly it was and is a great place to bring someone for a special night. High-End dinning experience with reasonable prices for the quality of the food! RECOMMENDED!

Service was efficient and friendly but both entrees were unusually tough.
The kitchen can and has done much better.
Noise level was elevated anyway and spiked uncomfortably when diners table-hopped to converse, with little regard for fellow diners. No inside-voices used.
Will definitely return for the oysters and a drink but a full meal, maybe not.

3 out of four entrees were not good. The scallops were dry and the lobster ravioli was tough and cold. Not sure if the ownership has changed but will not be going back.

Really one of my favourite restaurants. Was just a tad disappointed in my veal chop. The meat was a bit tough ( i make veal chops on the bbq and mine are tenderer). I ordered the chop with no butter topping and had to send it back because the kitchen put a pat of butter on it in spite of my request. My husband and i shared a salad and the waitress split it at the table- almost as if the kitchen forgot to split the salad. Nevertheless, the other three at our table really enjoyed their meals . I will definitely return. The staff are truly lovely and warm.

We were at a corner table which was a quieter location as it can be noisy. Always consistent food - the steak special was excellent, and I always have the grilled squid.
Sorrel is our go to restaurant - food is delicious, service is wonderful. I think the wine is overpriced, but the rest of the experience is always very very good

Noted on open table food allergies not addressed at the table and that we were celebrating a birthday. Neither were acknowledged and that was upsetting. In this day and age when you have a pleather of places to eat that do care, I do not recommend for severe allergies and it is not important to them Food is good, but not worth my life

Food was very good and beautifully executed. It was my first time booking this restaurant for a dinner with my girlfriends. Despite making a reservation weeks in advance, we were seated in the worst table in the restaurant; between the bathrooms/coat check and the kitchen. The restaurant was not anywhere near full at the time of the reservation. Is this where they seat all women only groups? I live in the neighbourhood and am always on the lookout for wonderful dining experiences. Not sure I would go back with family or friends. Too bad!
