So we go here frequently. Generally we really enjoy it. The dinner the other night was only so so. The pasta dishes were the real disappointment but the fish and scallops were very good.

We will be back but hope for a better outing next time.

Nice spot and $1.00 oysters a good thing to see considering Toronto restos charge $4.00 regularly per piece. Portions are good and quality too.

Only thing is there was very little in terms of atmosphere. I kind of felt I was eating in the suburbs and the clientele was older than I expected on a weekend (probably 60 plus).

I would go again.

I have not given a resto a 5 star rating in Toronto.

My husband and I dined at Sorrel this evening (9/21). The food and service both were amazing!

We began with the grilled calamari followed by a mixed greens salad for me and the mozzarella/tomato salad for my husband. Everything was delicious! Portion sizes were just right. For our mains, my husband had the prawns and I had the bouillabaisse. The bouillabaisse had a generous amount of scallops, shrimp, clams & mussels. The prawns were huge and delicious. Because we’re gluttons, we also split the flourless chocolate cake for dessert. Decadent and chocolatey, just the way it should be.

Not only was the meal wonderful, so was the service. Shout out to Barry, who was so patient as I took some time to decide what I wanted to drink and eat! His service (and that of the other wait staff) was flawless.

We WILL be back!

Sorrel is always consistent with the food and service. The staff is friendly and professional and the food is delicious. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. The perfect neighbourhood spot! A bonus that night...we managed to have the famous lemon tart for dessert.

Our 11 year anniversary. A very special time. Everything was delicious. Only opportunity area was a small gesture recognizing our anniversary. Other than that, one of the best places I have been too!

We were a party of 6 celebrating a 40th birthday and the evening was spectacular. The food was outstanding and the service impeccable and unobtrusive. Sorrel was a recommendation from dear friends and they were right on the money. The duck confit is delicious and the wine list impressive. Would go back in a heartbeat......if only I lived in Toronto!

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.

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!
