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.

    A friend of mine and I stopped by to have a late Sunday bite to eat. Service wasn’t bad by any means, it seemed to be a little slow on delivery of food and drink but we weren’t in a hurry so it didn’t really matter. The servers seemed to be helpful to one another which was also fine. We had 2 different servers throughout the night and both were pleasant, informative about specials and took good care of us. It was my first time on the patio and it was a 1000 point night so we were able to take advantage of that.

    We had a fabulous evening on their beautiful patio. Claire is a fantastic server. Our drinks and food were delicious! The specials are amazing. We enjoyed the ostrich appetizer. All of our entrees were great. And for dessert you can’t go wrong with the donuts and coffee ice cream.

    Sarita is always a happy occasion! Delicious, innovative food and well-crafted cocktails, plus excellent service always make for great experience. My only complain ever is the noise level-very loud! Otherwise-a perfect evening!

    This is our second time to Sarita…. We are new to the Cleveland area and have a running list of restaurants that we want to try out… we decided to ditch the list and return to Sarita because of the first time we went it was amazing !! The second time proved to be just as good!!! We I’ll be putting this spot on the top of our list going forward!

    If you are looking for an atmosphere to match your dining experience, especially if you have friends or family from out of town, look no further than Sarita to make that happen. From the service to the food, as well as the ambiance, this is the place that can create that big city (think NY or L.A.) ambiance. Listen to your server because it is obvious they know that menu well and are thoroughly versed in the specials, that will make your dining experience everything you have missing at other places. A bit of advice, don’t pass on the dessert menu, or the drink specials. They get everything right the first time, every time.

    Food selections were outstanding & delicious, service very professional! Many specials available that are not on the menu. Improvement opportunities: 1) table not ready at reservation time (~30 min wait) and 2) clearing / cleaning table since there are no tablecloths. I had water pooling and crumbs that should have been wiped-up between courses. Small details count.

    We absolutely love the food and many flavors at Saritas a Restaurant but the noise level is just plain unenjoyable and impacts our willingness to return. I wonder why there is no effort to reduce this. There must be a way to soften this with some type of modification to the high and metal ceilings or addition of carpeting or maybe some even better and more updated ways to absorb the noise (???). We were there on a Wedensday evening and it was a packed house, a solid testament to the great food.

    Been here many times & always had great food. Two of the people I was with decided to order the fish and chips. It was a rare miss by the restaurant and their food. Fish was very bland and not very crispy. Fries were cool to cold. Star of the plate was the coleslaw, which was excellent.
