It was a very special night for me and my boyfriend. He surprised me and took me to dinner at Sarentos. We were always curious with the difference that it had with Nicks and Sarentos on top of the I since we already tried it out. I guess we just expected too much. Nothing fancy about the location. When we got there, the valet guy helped us out. He was really friendly. He took the car and parked it for us. The hostesses greeted us with a smile. We got a front table where we could see the sunset. We had a good view. And the photography guy took a really good picture of us which I thought was worth the pay. Everything else was nothing out of the ordinary. The food didnt really make an impact on us. It was good but not too good. When they were taking our dessert order, they didnt even ask if we only wanted one to share or one each for us. They just assumed that we were going to share. When we were leaving, one of the hostesses that was seating guests saw us coming out and said goodbye but when we got near the door and hostess stand which where the other hostess was, she was snobby and didnt say anything even if she dont look like she was busy. She saw us coming out but she had no reaction. The valet guy was one of the most kindest person Ive met. And the only reason I would go back here is because of him.

.....because the views are stunning.
Enjoyable meal--not perfect--but enjoyable. I loved the photo opportunity, and had no issue paying for that perk.
Service was very good.

Very odd place. The service did not match the atmosphere. Feels like a walk off the beach cafe, but presents to be 5 star. Just did not feel the presentation matched the restaurant. The food was awful and too high priced. It was very uncomfortable, did not enjoy it at all

How can you argue with awesome food, great service and a beachside view of the ocean and Kohoolawe. The staff was very attentive, food was quick and great.

Yes, the prices are a little high, but the setting is magnificent, the service was over-the-top and the meals were simply delicious. Our family of five made a reservation for 6:30 so that we could be there during the sunset, and we were pleasantly shocked to see that our tables are essentially on the beach. The meal started with great complimentary bread for the table which we followed up with delectable calamari. We ordered veal, mahi mahi and pasta, all which were great. Topped off with the best Tiramisu we have had. A spectacular evening and a great way to spend our last night in Maui.
