Sarento's on the Beach is one of our favourite restaurants. Whenever we go to Maui, it is one of our "must eat at" places. The food and wine is fantastic. Our only complaint is that the service is very quick, a little to quick. We can be in and out in an hour - that's with before dinner drinks, main course, coffee and dessert. We feel very rushed when we go there.

This restaurant exceeded my expectations and made my whole party feel comfortable. Service was outstanding and very attentive to detail. Dinners were prepared with thought and presented well. Harder to find than expected but well worth the trip!!
parking on restaurant side was tough but there was a valet service to compensate!!

Our last dinner was spent at Sarento's on the Beach. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for anyone going to Maui.

Great on the beach dining
Great on the beach dining with impeccable service. Expansive wine list. If you are lucky enough to get a spot at sunset, you will not be disappointed!

Food not what you expect
Preparation of fish was one I did not care for so asked it be just grilled. This did not happen, it came with AWEFUL green olive/tomato something on it and cooked very well done. The shredded zucchini was also soaked in a jar of green olives and served with a chunk of grilled onion. For the price, the wait staff or maybe it was the kitchen, did not accommodate the order and the fish was very poorly prepared.

This is a great place for anniversary dinner. Everyone treated us special because we let them know when we made the Open Table reservation. Food, service, ambience was outstanding.

Best in Wailea
Sarento's was a great surprise. Perfect setting on the beach with food and service to match. I heard there were too many waiters helping each table but the waiters helped with efficiency without being bothersome and rushing. I love when you sit down and immediately bread is placed on the table. The bread mix was amazing, with a hummus spread and traditional oil and vinegar. We finished the basket and more immediately replaced. The fish special was amazing, pasta with Kobe meatballs awesome, shrimp dishes and bolognese were great and plentisome. Waiter followed us outside for pics with the sunset. Been to all the high rated restaurants in the area (Spago, Amaysia, Ko, etc) Sarento's by far the best experience.

Awesome meal...great sunset!
My family and I ate at Sarentos the other evening we had a wonderful time. The service is incredible,food was great and the sunset was perfect. I would defiantly go back.

We ate at Sarentos three times
We ate at Sarentos three times during our trip, twice for dinner and once for breakfast. Be sure to reserve early and ask for a table along the beach! If you get stuck in a booth, it's a bit warm. The osso bucco was wonderful as were our veal dishes. The pan roasted chicken was also very good. If you save room for dessert their tirmasu is excellent. If you go for breakfast their eggs Benedict is some of the best I have tried with perfectly poached eggs and hollandaise that is not overwhelmingly rich. Overall the service was attentive but a bit slow at times.

Great food great views, service
Great food great views, service almost to good! Definitely attentive.
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
The location right on the beach was a great place to celebrate a our anniversary. The food was excellent and servce good but not intrusive. Good wine list.
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Beautiful view and great food
Sarento's on the Beach was exactly as advertised. It was right on the beach with breathtaking views of he sunset in Maui. The food and service were both excellent. I am so happy we went to Sarento's on our last night!

Awesome food, amazing service and breathtaking views.

This place rates as my favorite
This place rates as my favorite in Maui . From the gimlet expertly shaken to the salad Gabriella and entrees of shrimp scampi and the best - snapper with Manila clams and Portuguese sausage- we were transported . And don't forget the portfitorols- omg - beyond terrific !!!!!!
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
We loved this place so much
We loved this place so much we had to go back as a due diligence matter- was it really that good? Resoundingly - yes. We had the Gabriella salad again - fantastic And had the pasta bolognaise which also earned high marks . The meat sauce was amazing with a combo of veal and beef with the perfect amount of chopped carrots and tomatoes in it. The only room for improvement would be for them to use fresh made pasta. The service was impeccable and seeing the sunset was a wonderful bonus.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
definite must while in Maui
Sarento's remains one of the best restaurants in Maui and one of my favorite Italian restaurants anywhere. Friendly and helpful staff. Unbeatable sunset views.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, questionable service.
Our meals were absolutely amazing, however our waiter(s) were not the most attentive and the section manager visited every table in the area except ours. For what you spend here you would expect a little better service.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
A very nice dining experience. Food was well prepared and tasty, service nice, if a tad obsequious.

Attentive wait staff, great food, spectacular view.

We were seated on the lanai at sunset. Once the sun went down, everything at the table was impossible to see clearly. We couldn't read the menus, so a small flashlight was brought to us. We couldn't even see the food on our plates. My filet was dry and over-cooked.
9/14/2013 5:00:00 PM
Terrific location, right on the oceanfront, with a nice romantic view of the sunset, water breaking on the shore and sandy beach. Good service, nice selection of food and wine, and nice atmosphere. Kama'aina ask for specials and if celebrating an occasion let them know!
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lots to offer
We were there later in the evening, got a beach side table, great view of the ocean.
Strange mix of wait staff all doing some of the same things.
Food was ok, skip the creme bullé. I had the snapper dish in a skillet, not what I expected but was good. My wife had the tiger shrimp pasta and said it was great.
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
We enjoyed our anniversary at Sarento's and the whole experience could not have been better. Staff was professional, but fun. Food was excellent. View is unbeatable. They accommodated our online request for an ocean view as well.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Savory Sunset Dining
The views are always spectacular at Sarento's as it's hard to have a bad table when the whole restaurant is facing the beach. Our meals were outstanding and the service was friendly and helpful. The only thing off was it took several requests to get a second glass of wine for each of us. It wasn't a huge inconvenience, though.
p.s. the valet parking is a huge bonus as you can drive right up to the entrance and they take it from there!

Sunset dinner in Maui on the Beach
This restaurant really accommodated my wife and I for her birthday. Very romantic setting, WONDERFUL dinner while watching the sunset... Beautiful

Romantic dinner on the beach
You can't beat the view at this restaurant. We sat outside and watched the sunset over the ocean and the activity on the beach right in front of us. The food also is very good and the service attentive. We've eaten here three or four times and it never disappoints.

First night out on Maui
My wife and I went here for her birthday. The food was excellent and the staff was great. We had a table as close to the beach as you could get, which made for a grate ambience. There were people shore fishing off the beach and it just so happened that they landed a decent sized fish while we were there. It made for a nice event. The fish was maybe a 40 pounder. The restaurant owner told me what kind of fish it was, but I can't remember what he said.
Regarding the food, I had the fresh catch and my wife had the lobster. Both dishes were excellent. They brought out a scoop of gelato with a cookie and a candle for my wife since it was her birthday. It was a nice touch. All in all a very good evening out.

The best in South Maui
My wife and I have eaten at many restaurants in the South Kihei and Wailea area, and Sarento's continues to be our favorite. Excellent service, excellent locaction, excellent food. What more could you ask for?
If i have any complaint its the parking situation. You pull into a very narrow lot and its (free) valet only. It would be less of a hassle to self park and have to walk a bit than try to get into and out of this lot.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
This restaurant offers a beautiful setting for any meal but especially at sunset. The food is exquisite with a beautiful presentation.
10/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always an incredible experience
Always an incredible experience and one not to miss when on Maui!
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
great date night
my wife and in are in Maui with or two young children and their grandma's. the grandma's took care of the kids and we came to Sarentos on the recommendation of several friends. we sat outside and watched the beautiful sunset while we enjoyed our dinner and a nice bottle of wine. food was very good and the service was excellent. fantastic location and overall a great night.
we will definitely recommend this place to friends
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and views
Came here for dinner on the last day of our honeymoon. Came early enough to be seated right on the beach to watch the beautiful sunset. Had a bottle of wine and crab cake appetizer which was very good. I had the tuna and he had the penne and we were both very pleased with our meals. Staff was friendly but like other reviews on here they take their time, which is fine, but don’t expect to get in and out. Would recommend to others looking for a nice romantic meal.
10/28/2013 5:00:00 PM
We loved our dinner at Sarento's. So many great entres to choose from, the service was wonderful and the view can't be beat.

Been here 5 times now and it keeps getting better. Service and food are second to none on the island

Dinner at the beach side
Food was excellent as was the service. Friendly and comfortable atmosphere with knowledgeable staff. Would return in a minute.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I are frequent visitors to Maui and have been to most of the top rated restaurants; this one will be on the top of our list. The food was excellent and so many great choices on the menu -- well deserving of a return trip. The service was great and very accommodating. Truly a wonderful experience.

Another great evening in Maui
Sarento's is well located, on the beach, restaurant with a great food menu and a decent wine selection to match. We try to get to this restaurant each time we are on Maui and are never disappointed. Or party of 8 was all served taking advantage of a variety of the menu selections, all of which satisfied a hungry group.
Consider this to be a very nice, mid range place to dine with excellent food, very good service and a stellar beach location.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
We come here every year and always enjoy it. The service is exceptional and the food always very good
We will be back!!!

Maui's Best by far!!!!!!!
Sarento's on the beach in Maui was the best find for this trip. Called ahead to make a reservation for my wife's birthday, and everything that I requested was right on cue. Service was fast, and such a sight to see the teamwork of the crew(it was like an orchestrated show.) Drinks were served fast, and amazing. The food, is hard to come up with a simple statement for..it was well portioned, and flavorful. My wife had the Ahi, and it was perfect. I had the Oso Buck, it was mouthwatering all the way down to the marrow, that was served with its own spoon. I would HIGHLY recommend this place to anyone for any occasion.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wonderful, ocean front dining…...
Open air, beachfront dining with excellent service and quality food to match. Seafood is fresh and prepared perfectly. Shrimp scampi was the best …..full of flavor but not swimming in butter and garlic.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
They just about gave our table away
Say what - it was our wedding and we had reserved a beach side table for 4 and indicated in open table as well followed up with a phone call when we arrived on Maui that it was our wedding dinner. Photos took etc took much longer then scheduled and we were 15 mins late and they called after 10 mins wondering if we were coming and basicly told me that they were going to give our table away? Thank goodness they called and I just happened to have my phone with me but I missed the call and no message was left..... I just figured out it was Sarento's calling. This could have been very upsetting for us.

Thoroughly enjoyed our 5th
Thoroughly enjoyed our 5th anniversary celebration dinner. Seating, service, and food all were excellent. Would definitely return.

11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
My wife and I celebrate our Anniversary at Sarentos every year! This is the third year in a row! The service was fantastic, we love how everyone works together to create a fantastic dining experience. The food was exceptional, the view amazing, nothing could have been better! Thanks Sarentos, see you next year!
