The Sorrento Grill has recently added a Tapas Lounge
with an entrance directly behind the current dining room. Now we've got
two great choices for places to eat in the Clock Tower Shopping Center.
We've tried tapas before but tapas with a Mediterranean flavor
is definitely a nice treat. The Dolmehs (stuffed grape leaves) are great.
The Salad Oliveh (chicken salad with potatoes) is unique and tasty. The
Lamb Bites Bruchetta with Feta are a personal favorite. Most of the meat
dishes we've tried feature a lovely smokey flavor. They also offer great
smoothies and a nice selection of desserts including one of the best Chocolate
Mousses we've tried. The service is cheery and efficient though instead
of ordering at the counter as you do in the Sorrento Grill, you get waited
on in the Tapas Lounge. The gurgling fountain and unique furnishings help
complete a lovely dining experience.
It’s about the bread, and the fire and the
food. These guys produce recipes from Persia that you KNOW they got from
their grandparents. And it’s not just the bread, it’s the
great kebab too. ..and the daily specials are consistently succulent,
featuring rich braises with classic seasonings. Try the lamb stew with
peas and eggplant, or the chicken with barberries and fragrant basmati
rice. The salads are a full meal; always crisp mixed greens and freshly
made dressings – great with the kebab. The Mediterranean Salad with
Salmon Kebab is perfect with cucumber-yogurt dip and chewy bread. The
clay oven bread is what flatbread is all about; with toasted bubbles,
perfect to soak up braises, or the ferfectly seasoned grilled meats and
vegetables. …and they serve wine. I have yet to be disappointed
once. This place is one of those finds – it’s about the food,
and the people who know how to make it.
The Kubideh here is without equal and the presentation
is perfect. The place follows the kebob house tradition in serving exceptional
cuisine in unexceptional settings, showing a healthy lack of pretension
- always welcome in this town.
I have to join the other reviewers here. This place
is by far the best kabob place anywhere in the area. There have been lots
of kabob places that have sprung up over the last few years in the Herndon/Reston
area but this place is a BIG cut above.What makes it so wonderful?
The huge selection of kabobs, the attention to detail along with the wonderful
spices they use not to mention it's always kept so clean and the staff
is so very friendly. Yes, once you've tried Sorrento Grill you won't be
disappointed. You do order at a counter and they do call your number so
it's not a table-cloth type restaurant but it is still wonderful. Plus,
I love the freshness of everything they make so you feel like you're eating
very healthfully. I hope Sorrento Grill never goes out of business as
they're a true gem in this area.
I eat in restaurants around the world. There is no better restaurant than the Sorrento Grill when it comes to what matters: healthy, quality food exquisitely prepared, outstanding service, excellent value, and friendly people who will make this your favorite neighborhood restaurant. My wife and I eat here several times a week. Mediterranean and Persian cuisine focuses on salmon, lamb, beef, chicken, and vegetarian dishes, and especially salads and kabobs. Delectable rice, grilled vegetables, and barbari bread complement most menu choices. The lamb is the best I’ve ever eaten, and that includes lamb in a number of restaurants in the Middle East and South America. Celiacs will find it easy to order gluten-free dishes. Finally, the restrooms at Sorrento Grill are spacious, well stocked, and spotlessly clean.
Simply the Best! A meal made for the most discerning food critic. A great value, you will not leave hungry, healthy never tasted this good. This is my favorite spot on my way out of town or back from Dulles; airplane food doesn't even come close. Love pretty much everything on the menu, sometimes I just ask the owners to surprise me and they sure do. I never have any complaints about the food or service. If I did I know it would be heard and addressed, but a good establishment takes care of these details before hand so no need to complain here. I've been to many fine spots all over the world, but these guys have their corner of the world right here in Herndon serving up tasty Mediterranean dishes. So try this hidden gem for a change and you will not be disappointed. My compliments go the guys at Sorrento Grill.
The Sorrento Grill is without a doubt our favorite restaurant. We've been eating there about once a week for most of the time it's been open. The owners go out of their way to make sure your dining experience is enjoyable. The food is always fresh and delicious. The dishes with kubideh are our favorites. There's something almost addictive about the subtle spices used in this tasty ground beef kabob. Another favorite is the aush soup (a delightful concoction of beans and noodles). The appetizers are delightful. The dolmehs (stuffed grape leaves) and the red pepper hummus are not to be missed. If you still have room after the generous portions, you might want to try the baklava which features a hint of rosewater among the delicate flaky layers of filo dough. It's a great finish to a delightful meal.
A mix of Persian and Mediterranean taste makes the dishes on this restaurant unique and unforgettable. the nice treatment of the staff, cleanness of the environment adds to our appetite. in the spring and summer the outside sitting area would make the gusts fee like they are eating in a high level Europe city. I and my family love Sorrento Grill for all different aspect of it.
The Sorrento Grill is one of Herndon's best kept secrets. We love the food, it is fresh, delicious and healthy. My favorite is the red pepper hummus, chicken and kubideh kabob with fresh pita bread. I also love the basmati rice they serve with all their kabobs, it is the best. The service is great and the staff are very friendly. We went back two days in a row and the second time I brought my Dad, he loved it too!
Spectacular tasty food, attentive and prompt service, a great value for the price - nice atmosphere, just love to eat there whenever I am in the Washington, DC metro area. Everything is great, from the kebabs, rice, salads, beverages (I've never made it to dessert!!). The friendly owner is a true culinary professional who makes each and every guest feel welcome and appreciated. I can't say enough good things about this wonderful restaurant.
