Welcome to Sarita, where we are slightly obsessed with serving good food among friends and family. Our focus is on healthy, new American cuisine – a celebration of all our backgrounds and roots. The best of the best eats if you will. Lighter dishes with natural reductions, a lot of vinaigrettes, less cream, less butter — but unbelievable flavors. This is what you can expect if you choose to dine with us. And we hope you will. The name Sarita is a nod to Chef Anthony Romano’s mentor, plus the name of a song by the New Orleans band, The Subdudes, one of the chef’s favorites. The restaurant is owned by executive chef Romano. His approach to Sarita is fairly simple: to create a space that’s a reflection of his kind of place.relaxing, fun and celebrate life in the company of friends and family with good food and a great cocktail in hand.

    It was my wife birthday. Everything was fine until we received the bill and was shocked to see the Veal alone was $45. It was recommended by our waiter Nick; but it was not on the menu so I had no clue the price but wasn’t expecting to pay that for three small pieces. It came out medium rare so I had to send it back to be recooked which didn’t seem to be a issue. The food was good but definitely overpriced; even the cheese cake was expensive- $9 for a small slice. The overall experience was ok- but definitely not worth the $125 bill. We don’t plan on visiting again.

    One of the best restaurant experiences I've had in some time - the wait staff were very knowledgeable and enjoyable and the food was simply spectacular! They offered many specials with unique recipes/ingredients. Prices were not cheap, but the quality was exceptional so it was worth it. Great ambience as well. Will be coming back!

    Gerry our server was wonderful! The octopus appetizer had great flavor but was a bit underdone and chewy, as well as not served hot. Short rib crostini app was fabulous! Salad with pears and blue cheese was good, great vinaigrette. Diver scallops and Wagu strip were tasty, again not served hot. Didn’t want to complain as the restaurant was packed. Will return again for another try

    Reserved for dinner for my wife and myself. They sat us by the large window at the front entrance way. AWFUL table location. Crowd noise was off the charts, by ears were ringing after I left. The waitress did a good job, but considering the packed house, the service was a bit slow. Food was ok,

    We are consistently impressed with Sarita in every way and are always proud to take new Sarita diners there with us. Love the range of menu choices. And in a summer where so many restaurants are having problems maintaining servers, yours are consistently knowledgeable, helpful and efficient. Kudos all around.

    Everything was great! We we’re getting together with friends. The only thing bad that I can say is, we felt like we were being pushed out. I get that it’s a busy place. Perhaps you should put a time cap at the time of the reservation. Our reservation was for 5:15. We were finished at about 6:30. It would have been nice to be able to chat for another 15 minutes. Great food, great atmosphere, and great service!

    It was a wonderful evening with great food and great service. My only negative comment is that having so many specials recited by the waiter was mind boggling. Too much information to absorb. Either have fewer or print it out so we can digest it all (pun intended).

    The food was excellent. The way they paired the risotto with the sword fish, the three different meats for the bolognese dish was perfect. The ice cream used in the desserts was one of best I have ever had and I bought ice cream for 25 years. Great place to have dinner.
