“Delicious”
Reviewed September 5, 2013 via mobile

The food was fantastic though with so many specials being sped through by staff could be confusing & difficult.

Was somewhat disappointed with no wine under $12 USD a glass & few to no local varieties either- almost all are Italian &/or French.

Service was great - they almost seemed over staffed?
Food was delicious.

For a special occasion this would be a very lovely place to celebrate

“on the beach”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

We made a dinner reservation for this restaurant as it had been recommended to us. Being on the beach and enjoying the sunset was amazing. We enjoyed 3 courses and they were all very good, but not excellent, for the price. There were also too many different servers/waiters which was very confusing. I had water poured with every sip I took and would have preferred to have had my wine refilled instead. Having it left over in the bottle when the bill arrived was a little disappointing.
However, I would go back but maybe for a late breakfast.

“beautiful backdrop”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Perhaps one of the best views on the island! The view and the bread were my favorite parts of the dinner (at sunset) experience. The food was good, but not spectacular. The service was very good.

“Birthday Celebration in Style”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

My husband and I moved to Maui this year. We have had the pleasure of visiting many restaurants on the Island. We wanted to know the best places to take our family & friends when they visit us. We also are Managers of a small resort and we wanted to be able to refer our many guests without hesitation.
Last night we had the wonderful opportunity of taking one of our resort guest who had a birthday to Sarento's on the Beach. The ambience was amazing as you are right on the beach. The service was over the top. The food was not only the best prepared Ahi I have had but also the presentation of the food was beautiful. The Manager, Jai, came over to meet us and was just delightful.
We are so excited to bring our family and friends to Sarento's on the Beach and to refer our guests.
Thank you to all the servers, the valet and hostesses for such a wonderful memory and dining experience.
