Our birthday group of for Wien friends visited this place on a Monday for lunch. To our surprise, it was "$4 martini day!" Well we couldn't pass that up and they were fabulous! We enjoyed the fiesta special, triple berry and a chocolate one with Baileys. (Note: we each had one martini, not one of each flavor mentioned! 😊) The... More

Delicious food, attentive waitress & 'complementary' birthday cupcake.. made for a memorable 'girl friend' birthday celebration (unlike many sites, there was no hurry to leave as we lingered over birthday presents & 'catching up')

We consider ourselves to be very fortunate to have Sarna's in our neighborhood. Although we do not eat at Sarna's on a regular basis, my wife and I have on many occasions been grateful that Sarna's is in the neighborhood when it comes to making dinner plans for those unexpected guests who drop in on short notice. We have found... More

The food was okay, the service was good, the waitress was outstanding, but when we left the hostess didn't seem to care, there must have been something interesting happening behind the stand because she didn't even look up when we said goodnight to her.
