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 arrived this is what we were told. We were given a table close to the... 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.

very accommodating, very attentive (but not hovering). never a glass empty or a request without a positive response. a bit pricey, but that was Ok by me.

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 plates which were fine but not special. Nicely presented, but nothing to write home about.... More

This was our second trip to this restaurant. The first one was excellent, this time was a bit different. It is a white tablecloth establishment at the top of the hotel. Beautiful views of the city and ocean. Our first mistake was not asking for the table we had before which is to the right and very private with views... 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 pm and all evening on Wednesday. Now to our visit: We waited until our last... 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 celebration of life there. " At our favorite restaurant, toast to me at Sunset." Was... More

My Italian food was supper bin taste. The service and friendliness of the staff was delightful. They had a piano player during dinner hours which also was a nice touch. It was the perfect place to watch a Hawaiian sunset. I took some great pictures that will be wonderful memories. This is a must visit spot on your vacation.

I really, really wanted to like this more. I came years ago and had a decent experience and wanted to revisit to see if I remembered correctly. Let me start by saying that I find places to dine here at home that I will get something for the visit. This restaurant happened to be a 1000 points on OpenTable, cha... More

Description
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.

With breathtaking views of Diamond Head, Waikiki Beach and Honolulu's famous skyline, Sarento's brings a bit of Italy to Hawaii with style.
