It sure appears a lot of limousine are coming and going to this spot. I do not often embibe, so I can't comment on the wines next door. However, my wife and I have enjoyed several fine dinners here with dear friends over the years. :)

My husband had the ribeye he loved it it as well. We also had dessert which was so good. I had the butterscotch pudding with warm caramel-... More

We enjoyed brunch in Father's Day with 7 adults, a toddler and a 6 year old. It was lovely... The children went out to feed the fish and socialize with other children and we enjoyed socializing. The food was prepared and served perfectly. We had dinner on another evening and enjoyed the same experience.

I have been to Sorrento's many times and it's always been a wonderful experience. The food is delicious and paired well with the wonderful wines from Tsillan Cellars Winery where the restaurant shares the same space. The staff is knowledge and attentive and you can't beat the views looking out on to Lake Chelan. They have the ability to open... More

My only experience at Sorrento's was for brunch on Father's Day. The restaurant was not packed by any means, but we waited 45 minutes for our food after ordering. Then it took us 7 minutes to eat our meals because the portions were so small. I am happy to pay a high price for great food, but the ingredients were... More

We selected this location based on the numerous Trip Advisor reviews. Our experience...Location=excellent; View=excellent; Food=excellent; Service=slower than necessary. This was a popular Saturday night dinner location and thought it would be the best birthday dinner for my husband. Everything but the service was spot on. I hope the slowness of the visit was timing and not the norm. We really... More

We were on an afternoon of wine tasting and this seemed like a "must see" I will say it was crowded -- so that may have affected our experience, but it felt very big and impersonal. None of the wines blew our socks off. We checked out the dinner menu -- if we had been in the mood for Italian... More

Description
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. While Sorrento Ristorante is the perfect setting for a romantic evening of dining with that special person it is also the perfect venue to entertain business colleagues, friends, or have a warm family friendly dining experience. 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.
