Went here for dinner after finding good and favorable reviews. Great views from the 30th floor although we were seated inside unfortunately. The food is great, service exceptional and the way steak was cooked to perfection.

We went for happy hour on a Wednesday shortly after they opened. We were seated and offered a drink right away. However, it became busy and they were obviously overwhelmed. My food came about ten minutes before my husbands so we shared mine first. His was dropped off by a very rude server. No one ever came back to ask... More

I've lived in Honolulu for 20 years now, but this is just my second visit to this restaurant. It's been completely renovated and soooo amazing. Ambience: perfect, for family, romantic dinner or any special occasion Service: excellent I can't tell you about prices, we were invited to a birthday party and dined in a private room that overlooked the beautiful...

Staying at the Ilikai and were able to get a table tonight without reservations. Great views of the area! Place has live music which was nice, but a bit noisy. Server was friendly, but not overly attentive. She stopped by just after the food was delivered and we never saw her again until we were done. My wife liked her... More

Our waiter was great and the drinks and appetizers were very good. I was just really disappointed that the seating was not on the ocean side to watch the sunset, that was the only reason I went up there to eat and I couldn't even see the sunset as the spot to see it was in the garden room and...

We attempted to get a reservation for dinner last week but nothing available. It was suggested we come for Happy Hour and have small plate meals. Happy Hour on Saturday is all evening. If you purchase one of their excellent specialty cocktails (about $12) you can get any regular dinner item at 40% off. Amazing deal and great food. The... More

I honestly cannot recommend this place enough. We came here one night on our honeymoon in June. I reserved a table online, told them we were on our honeymoon and requested a table with a good view. They gave us such an awesome table. We had an amazing view. We got there just before the sun began to go down... More

Superb, regional Italian cuisine with a Mediterranean flair. Specialties include award-winning homemade pastas, fresh Hawaiian seafood, prime steaks, veal, lamb, chicken, pork and signature dishes such as osso buco, as well as decadently delicious Italian desserts from their pastry chef. Sarento's offers an excellent Happy Hour with signature cocktails and small plates at the bar from 5pm-8pm daily. Happy Hour goes until 10 pm on Wednesdays and Thursdays! With breathtaking views of Diamond Head, Waikiki Beach and Honolulu's famous skyline, Sarento's brings a bit of Italy to Hawaii with style. Old country warmth and hospitality are part of the atmosphere that makes this fine dining establishment one of Hawaii's most celebrated. Beautiful private dining rooms are available for groups up to 40.
