We were given a coupon for 40% off ALL cuisine from 5-6:30 (Happy Hour) if you order a Signature drink, which we did. It doesn't say just the small Happy Hour plates and it doesn't say you have to sit at the bar. When we...More

The staff was delightful, service great, food even better! The views were especially memorable. The music (piano when we were there) was very pleasant. We had to return, I guess that says it all.

This is a long time favorite for sunset views, Friday fireworks and romantic dining. My first experience here when Sarento's opened as to food was that, though billed as "fine dining" it was more an attempt at fine dining. This visit, we dined on small...More

We returned here again on this visit to Hawaii. One note before the details of our visit: They have a brochure that says "up to 40% off all cuisine" but not sure of what you have to do. Happy Hour is from 5 until 6:30...More

Great Food, excellent Service. Fine dining, but not a break the bank price. Food is well worth what they charge. The view alone, is worth the price. Entertainment in the evening too. Several private rooms. Management is easy to work with. We even had Mom's...More

There is a parking garage right next to the Ilikai. We used it as we stayed at the Ilikai and it was cheaper than valet parking at the Ilikai (also an option).

Is there a dress code bc I'm looking for a restaurant to where a three piece suit in and not look out of place

Response from Myntrav | Reviewed this property |
A suit would not be out of place, but Hawaiian upscale casual is more frequent. Men in slacks and dressier Aloha shirts. Great setting, and also has early evening pupus and drinks specials in the bar.
Can you tell me how long it takes to walk from The Modern Honolulu Hotel ?

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.
