Went there for dinner to find the cheapest California Chardonnay wine was $20 for a6 ounce serving really a rip next we had an entree we split which was mediocre a couple of appetizers that were under sized in fairness we had breakfast there and had a wonderful breakfast so stick to breakfast and forget the dinner

Six of us descended on Sarento's the morning after our friends' wedding. We were seated quickly, and the service was impressive. Bloody Mary's and mimosas were ordered, and inhaled. I did not have a Bloody Mary but those who did proclaimed it delicious. Two people in our party ordered the Pacific eggs Benedict, which the server promised would change their... More

Great experience w our 1 year-old. Fantastic views of water, open-air dining, great food and service. We felt welcome as a family and staff was great. A fellow diner recommended that we return for brunch; we didn't return, but supposedly brunch is great.

This place should get a much higher rating. The food was outstanding starting with a caprese salad that would make a Positano chef blush. I had the scallop/scampi dish which was amazing and flavourful. My wife had the spiny lobster...also very good. Where Sarento's dropped the ball was the same issue we've faced in other Maui restaurants during our stay.... More

Had dinner here with my family while on vacation in Maui. Ended up with perfect timing as we could see the sunset perfectly from our table. Every one of our meals was top notch. Delicious -- can't recommend this place highly enough.

We've been to Maui many times and have heard about Sarento's but never dined there. This time we did and we're very pleased.

We went to Sarento's for the first time for dinner. The atmosphere is great since it's right on the beach with a wonderful ocean view. The other positive was the food which very tasty and nicely presented. However, the big downfall was the service was terrible. I asked for a drink on the rocks and got one up instead. We... More
