This neighborhood restaurant is one of the best in Cleveland! Even though the restaurant was packed when we visited, everything was perfect, from the noise level (busy but moderate) from every course. Service was excellent, too. My husband and I had the lobster appetizer and...More

Love this place...the food is awesome, the presentation wonderful, service excellent...all good, with a good wine menu as well. The only complaint is I wish they had more vegetarian meals, not very many to chose from.

A friend selected Sarita for a celebration, but on the Friday night that the four of us visited, with a full restaurant, the noise level was so high that conversation was basically impossible. It's a poorly designed space. The food was good, but we won't...More

I had the special which was halibut, and it was delicious. It came with asparagus and mashed potatoes. All together we ordered 2 apps, 3 entrees and 1 dessert and the bill was $140. Both the food and service were good, but I thought it...More

We went with friends. We hadn't been here in quite a long time since the space used to be occupied by Players. Most of us had eaten and were just drinking but one person in our party ordered several appetizers: calamari with coriander and cumin,...More

While too chilly for a patio dinner, the inside space is eclectic and moderately loud. Food was presented in a stylized with great service as well.

Welcome to Sarita, where we are slightly obsessed with serving good food among friends and family. Our focus is on healthy, new American cuisine - a celebration of all our backgrounds and roots. The best of the best eats if you will. Lighter dishes with natural reductions, a lot of vinaigrettes, less cream, less butter - but unbelievable flavors. This is what you can expect if you choose to dine with us. And we hope you will. The restaurant is owned by executive chef Romano and his best friend, Sandy Smith. The pair first met at Players 16 years ago and have been inseparable ever since. Their approach to Sarita is fairly simple: to create a space that's a reflection of their friendship...relaxing, fun and celebrate life in the company of friends and family with good food and a great cocktail in hand.
