“Lovely dinner with a wonderful view!”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

Our last dinner on Maui was at Sarento's. Made an early dinner reservation with a request "by the rail." This way we had an unobstructed view of the beach and the sunset. With a 5:30pm reservation, we were seated with our drinks and had our meal ordered while we watched the sun set. Beautiful. Many staff available: for drinks order, meal order, and servers. So many in fact, when we told a server at our table we would like our bill, it was not given to the "correct" person and we waited 20 minutes with no one bringing it! We had to ask a 2nd time. The menu had many choices, and we liked our selected meal. My chicken dinner was very good. Use valet parking, spaces for car is VERY limited. Enjoy a beautiful sunset and meal!

“Dog Food”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

We went to Sarento's last night. This is by far the worst cuisine we have had in a long time. The atmosphere and service was fine. Without going into great detail, trust us and go somewhere else. I felt it was safe to order spaghetti and meatballs at an Italian restaurant. This was literally left-overs that were reheated in a saute pan. Chewy dried up pasta with tomato paste. I am not kidding. My 11 year old Boy Scout can easily make a better meal. I would have asked for a refund but thought maybe I'm being too picky and I didn't want to make a scene. I just won't go back.

“I enjoyed their breakfast, attentive staff were helpful and the view was spectacular.”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

Only had breakfast a few times; the choice a bit limited. Coffee is good quality. It's a quiet restaurant, not like giant breakfast halls in resorts.

“Good Food Great Sunsets”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

Great place to kick back sip some wine and eat a little pasta while watching a perfect Maui sunset. But what happened to the carbonara? One of the best I ever had and now it's not on the menu? What's up with that?

“Fantastic service , great view and enjoyable happy hour”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

We had read some not so great reviews about this palce but decided to try it for happy hour. We sat in the bar but you could see out to the ocean and beyond. Sunset views were awesome. Our bartender made a great drink. Happy hour prices for drinks and apps were great. We had the crab cakes, the portabella mushroom stack, and an asparagus salad. All were delicious. They have valet parking also. I looked at the main menu and it had a lot of nice items on it. The main dining area was lovely. You could tell that service was very important here. Next time we will try dinner for sure.
