We have dined at Sorrel many times since it opened. It has always been extremely noisy, so we expect that when we make a reservation.
The menu changes very little, and having been there a number of times is seems quite repetitive, and boring.
They have not maintained the quality of the food; last time we were there i thought that things were slipping and this time i found the confit de canard that i ordered for my main was dry and tasteless. The sauce had no discernible flavor. I ordered frites with it and they were lukewarm and soggy. I sent them back and the replacements were hot and soggy. Why is it that McDonalds is able to serve fries that are so much better than most higher end places.
To be fair, the seared scalllops are generally excellent and considering the price of dry pack scallops in the fish market, they are priced quite reasonably. It would be nice to see another presentation other than with creamed cauliflower which is not something i want to eat very often.
another place added to my "do not rush back to" list.

Outstanding food and service. Only issue is the acoustic level is poor so very challenging to have a conversation.

Our waiter at Sorrel was extremely helpful and professional. The restaurant got a little noisy, but the atmosphere was cheery and the staff friendly. I think my friends enjoyed their meal, but mine was mediocre. The chilled peas soup was very watery and fairly bland. The tuna tartare tasted strongly of sesame seed oil, but there was very little acid to cut the oil. I asked for lemon to squeeze on the tartare. That helped, as well as salt and pepper.

The whole experience was great. Service was attentive but not overbearing - just there when needed. Food was delicious. Only small complaint would be the oysters are not detached from the shell and there were some chips of shell in most of the oysters. But they were still fresh and tasty.

We had a bad experience with the $1 oysters, they were not shucked properly. The meat was attached to shell completely and every single oyster we ate contained bits of shell including one very large sharp shard of shell which was when we finally gave up on trying to eat them. We mentioned to the waitress and she acknowledged others that night had said the same thing, however when the bill arrived we still were charged for them. Found this a tad disappointing.
The rest of our food was very delicious however.

From the greeting with a big smile at the front door, to the over all service, everything was excellent. We were really made to feel like they were delighted that we were there! On top of that the food was beautifully presented and the flavors were fantastic. Highly recommended at a very reasonable price point for what you get.

Great neighbourhood restaurant. Delicious oysters! Attentive service. Reasonably priced. It is on the noisy side, but if you can find a little later, the crowd thins and it is fine.
Always good and never fails to delight!

As always - Sorrel provided mpeccable service and excellent food. Sometimes it gets a little noisier than I’d actually like, but I know that is a sign of their success and the general happiness of the patrons. You cannot go wrong at Sorrel.

Look: nothing special about the design. Border line boring. But I guess it goes with the clientele which is 95% old rich people. Barely any mid age clients. Too bad!

Service: we found the service quite slow border line too slow! I think they are short in kitchen staff! What other reason could justify the slow service? The restaurant wasn’t that busy and they had enough waiters.

Food: the only and main highlight of our dinner! Good was excellent! We had $1 oysters and we ordered 3 dozens, beef carpaccio and steak tartare! Even the bread and butter were awesome!! So good!

We will definitely come back at least once a month!

Thank you

This was our first time and at Sorrel and we loved it. We were 30 mins early for our 8:45 PM reservation and were immediately sat at the wonderful bar. The service was excellent throughout the night. We started with oysters and a delish mozzarella and tomato salad. Both main courses were superb: Bouillabaisse and a mushroom with truffles pasta. We will be back.

We went for the oysters and they were wonderful. Then my husband had the perfectly cooked calamari and I had the linguine with tomato. Perfect ! We love sitting at the bar.
