We stayed very near this restaurant and found it ideally placed for almost-on-the beach dining, for breakfast or dinner. The view is splendid, the food we had delicious, the staff friendly and fast. There is even a tree right outside where at least a thousand birds come to chatter and flit at sunset. Then they shut up and the meal... More

is Sarento"s on the Beach!. We made a reservation for 5:30 in order to be seated directly at the front with nothing but sea, sky, and sand in front of us. I asked specifically for this seating and was not disappointed. I was a bit concerned upon entry and found the restaurant to be full, but the hostess assured me... More

Vacationing in Maui and had diiner for 4 at Sarentos. A somewhat of a local place and a little difficut to find to check it out in the daytime to ensure you can find the turn into the parking area. The location is right on the water - if your table is near the water - you can feel the... More

We visited Sarentos with another couple while visiting Maui. Very good service and wine list. Enjoyed the Spring Green salad. Perfect to split between two people. The fresh fish of the day was excellent. The chef even used a different fish that I requested. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. We have eaten here before and are never disappointed.

Read the online menu, made a reservation for dinner. Arrived, didn't see the food I wanted that was listed on the online menu, also prices were $20 higher. Asked about it, was told the online menu needs to be updated it's out of date. Yes it is out of date, so why don't you update the menu with current prices

If you are planning on having dinner at Sarento's, try to reserve a table around sunset for the best views of the day. The restaurant itself is on the beach and is really well-known, so reservations are pretty much a must. Take a taxi or an Uber to get there, parking is beyond difficult - only one direction into the... More

Wonderful setting, right by the sea with great views. Service was inconsistent; very good at the start and off and on; yet slow. Three employees plus the manager introduced themselves as taking care of us yet this did not seem to help the quality of service. There were 3 Turley Zins on the wine list and we ordered the lowest... More

We dined here for brunch on New Year's Day. Food was delicious and well presented. Waitstaff were courteous and friendly. Location is awesome with gorgeous ocean views and breezes. Reservations recommended as it is a popular spot.

We visit Maui at least 5 times a year and its been awhile since we have been to Sarentos, needless to say we will never go there again. We placed a reservation for 815pm and checked in at 8pm. The hostess told us 10-15 minutes and they will seat us. Fast forward to 9pm and still no table. My husband... More
