“This was the best meal/experience I have had in quite some time, possibly ever. We were lucky enough to dine in the cellar and have Sadie as our server. I want to express my gratitude to the chef, staff, and Manager, Jeff who made this a night to remember. Highly recommend the ribeye caps, lamb, and all of the first courses. Bring a big group and share everything! Make sure you request Sadie as your server, her recommendations were spot on.”

“We love this place so just the facts. My husband had the New York strip and it was very grissley. He couldn’t eat it. I had the mushroom pasta and it was pretty bland. The salmon was my protein and it was fantastic. My husband’s cream spinach was very good too. As I said before , we love this place and ventured out. You can’t beat the filets here. The salad bar is one of my favorites also . We didn’t complain because we read a review that did..we will be back and will probably just stick with what we know. Carley was our waitress and she was absolutely wonderful.”

“We stopped in and tried the Blueberry Cheesecake Panda. It was delicious. A great stop for some interesting beer. The place is not much inside. There is a little food offerings but we did not try any. They have some cans you can buy but we like the beer out of the tap beer.”

“We were thrilled to discover this gem of a lunch spot on a rainy Saturday in Banner Elk. These were seriously some of the best sandwiches we've ever had! I thoroughly enjoyed a turn up the heat on sourdough, and my son devoured his Carolina Italian. Not only was the food (and coffee) amazing, but the ambience was great, and the owners were super friendly. The baked goods looked amazing, and we will be sure to save room for them next time. I plan to order one of their delicious looking cakes for our next family event, as well. We will definitely be back soon and want to spread the word about this great local spot.”

Someone came in we didn't even know and we were talking to each other table to table. Someone came in we did know and the same thing happened.A little on the expensive side, but worth it for a special dinner! I can't wait to go back.”

“Fantastic experience tonight for Valentines. After an awful travel schedule we got to Sorrento’s 20 minutes before the restaurant closed hoping to still have a romantic meal. We were promptly seated and served, and treated to a fantastic meal. Jason was our bartender and not only did he make the best old fashioned I’ve ever had, his service and recommendations were superb. All around the best service I’ve received in quite some time. A++”
