“Great food, average decor”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

We walked in this place randomly without reservation. I had a great experience with the food. Tasty soup and salmon. The service is good, but the decor is not so impressive. There are better places in the same price range in this area.

“Great Food but very average service”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

The menu is good although the ingredients are not as fresh as they might be.

The service on the other hand is not great. In fact we were sprayed with the cleaner that they use to spray the tables! Not only that, but it got onto our food. The server then turned her back and walked away and we paid and left.

Not good customer service at all!

Too bad, good location and the menu looked OK, but another restaurant off of the list!

“Sorrel - good, casual, downtown dining in Toronto”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

Located in a below-ground space on Yorkville near Bay (our window table was eye level with the sidewalk, which was really nice. Smallish in size - 50-60 seats perhaps, we made reservations, which is a good idea. Good, basic French menu and specials...service started out about stiff and somewhat abrupt, but when the server was asked where he came from (Paris) he became extremely animated and friendly. Dinner included a wonderful pea and fennel soup, and a fall-off-the-bone beef short ribs as well as a shared, very very good creme brule, had no cpmplaint whatsoever. Nice location & ambience, good service when engaged, good food. Would go again

“Very good dinner”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

Went on a quiet Friday night between Christmas and New Years. The service was attentive and friendly. The food was nicely presented and delicious. It is a lovely atmosphere - dark and cozy, stylishly decorated. I found nothing to complain about!

Sorrel had very attentive staff and excellent food at surprisingly good prices. I also had the best martini during my trip at this restaurant.
