Contemporary American
Our focus at Sarita is new American cuisine. A style of food that's not pigeonholed into one country or one style. But a representation of all of us. A blend of the best if you will. My background is very Pacific Rim Californian, so you can expect lighter dishes with natural reductions, a lot of vinaigrettes, less cream, less butter -- but unbelievable flavors. We're going to continually evolve and have fun with the menu. You will always experience something new when you come in.

We ate on the patio and was extremely comfortable.

Great time.

I made a reservation for a birthday celebration on the patio, we had reservations at another restaurant for outdoor seating because Sarita's patio is first come first serve.
I explained that we could not eat inside due the the age of the birthday "girl" and the owner said he would make an exception and reserve a table on the patio. (Again we had another reservation so it would not have been a big deal we just would not have gone to Sarita's.) We arrived for our 6:30 reservation after a 40 minute drive and when we arrived we were told by the hostess that the patio was first come first served, I said I undersatnd that but the owner said he would make an exception, she said that he did not notify her and that there is nothing she could do about it (rather rudely) and offered us a seat at the bar for our 20-30 minute wait for our outdoor table. We chose to wait in the car for the same reason we could not eat inside. Needles to say it tainted our entire evening as I looked like an idiot to my family. I have to say that the food was just OK after all of that and we most likely will not be back. Too bad cause it used to be one of my favorites and worth the drive.

Always a pleasure to be at Sarita! Good good, Paige lovely but poor girl was swamped at bar for awhile! She is the best! Chris loved the mussels and his Bolognese too. I had snapper and it needed a little more flavor. Brownie with coconut ice cream was delicious!!

Not knowing what to expect, our party was pleasantly surprised by the ambiance. The food options were perfect, and the quality of each entree was just as good if not better. Our server was extremely knowledgeable and helpful, and the drinks were well crafted. Our only disappointment was not being able to experience the Chef’s Table, but to the restaurant’s credit we didn’t inquire about it until seated at the restaurant. We’re definitely looking forward to coming back soon.

Started with the calamari, then had the Ceasar, and chose one of the specials (Pumpkin Boar pasta) as my entree. Everything was delicious. Sarita is great because they have a menu of staples but also has a comprehensive list of specials to try. There is always something new!

Food good very long wait though for even bread. Ate inside had reservations got our drink immediately ordered appetizer and bread it was an hour before we got either. And I had to ask again for the bread. Just didn’t seem like they had enough help. Inside had empty tables not sure how busy patio was. People that came in after us had their food before us.

Top notch. Traditional ingredients with stellar preparation. The food was creative but in no way outlandish.
I rarely think that restaurants put out good desserts but I was very impressed with the two that we tried – – a chocolate crème brûlée and a pumpkin cheesecake. Again it was all in the preparation and quality ingredients.

Celebrated an anniversary at Sarita with my partner. The food was outstanding and our server (Jerome) was upbeat and fun. We ate out on the patio and what might have been an evening a bit too cool was made perfect by being seated next to a pleasant warm fire. The price was reasonable, too. I'd heartily recommend this place to anybody wanting a special and intimate night out on the town.

Everything was very delicious, especially the appetizers. Service was wonderful as well. Our table was on the edge of the patio seating area and only flaw was as the night went on, we couldn’t see our food or one another’s faces due to how dark it was, but nonetheless still a 5 star experience!!

This was our 3rd trip to Sarita this summer and dinner on the patio is always enjoyable. Took my parents this time around to celebrate my mom's 82nd birthday. Our waitress Janis was super sweet. Everything was great from our drinks to dessert and coffee. We shared a few appetizers (cornbread, peppers, mussels and prosciutto wrapped mozzarella) which were all amazing. The veal special with risotto was quite tasty and plentiful enough for two of us to share (which the kitchen was happy to split up and plate separately). Both men in our party ordered the beef short rib which has become my husband's favorite of the summer. Can't say enough good things about this little restaurant. We'll be back again soon!
