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.

    We were seated immediately and a nice table for 2. Server got our drink order immediately and helped my wife decide which signature cocktail she would like. Server the. Went through the special appetizers. We opted for a zucchini bloom. It was amazing! I had the Kobe beef strip (12oz) and my better half opted for the lobster gnocchi. Both were perfectly prepared. We split a serving of cheesecake and we’re in dessert heaven!!! We love Sarita’s and we should go back more frequently. It’s fine dining in walking distance to my house. Couldn’t ask for a better spot!

    The food and service were excellent! This is the place to go if you are tired of the “every restaurant serves the same thing” syndrome. The staff was intuitive and patient (not rushing to get us out after eating). Well worth stopping. Make reservations online

    Best dinner we’ve ever had. Started with the grilled ostrich appetizer and a goat cheese dip with flatbread, which were specials for the night and both incredible. My partner ordered the beef tenderloin entree while I got the short rib. We ended the meal with the triple chocolate torte, which was huge. The service was great and the patio was really comfortable and quiet. Definitely a nice experience and we’ll be looking forward to coming back soon.

    Sarita did not disappoint. The seating was a little tight as waiters had to constantly excuse themselves to get though. But the timing of the food, the attentiveness of our server, and the quality from the kitchen was outstanding. Good prices slightly higher than what felt appropriate, but it didn’t detract from the overall quality. $150 for appetizers, entrees, and two cocktails each.

    What a find! Being east side T’s, we decided to break the mold and head to Lakewood. Read a few reviews and chose Sarita to celebrate a friend’s birthday. What a great pick! Everything was outstanding-the food, the server (shout out to educator Michael) and the atmosphere. It was a Saturday night so a bit loud and crowded, but absolutely worth it!

    The food was wonderful last Saturday night. The service is and was just as great as the food. The weather started out warm and perfect to sit on their beautiful patio. All of a sudden it started to rain. Within MINUTES the staff had everyone from the patio moved to inside the restaurant. This restaurant not only serves delicious healthy food but it runs like a top. If you go to Sarita plan on great food and a relaxing evening.
