My Italian food was supper bin taste. The service and friendliness of the staff was delightful. They had a piano player during dinner hours which also was a nice touch. It was the perfect place to watch a Hawaiian sunset. I took some great pictures that will be wonderful memories. This is a must visit spot on your vacation.

I really, really wanted to like this more. I came years ago and had a decent experience and wanted to revisit to see if I remembered correctly. Let me start by saying that I find places to dine here at home that I will get something for the visit. This restaurant happened to be a 1000 points on OpenTable, cha... More

Food was average but service was excellent and views were exceptional. Although food was just avg., prices were very reasonable. Views of Harbor was awesome. I would come here again just for the views.

We arrived here for Happy Hour after starting at the restaurant downstairs (Cinnamons) and did not like the menu (fried or breakfast), as well as dogs in the restaurant! It was a little bit of heaven at Sarentos - lovely cocktails, and small dishes. The Hostess was extremely helpful and welcoming, but the wait staff did not seem to know... More

We were staying at the Ilikai, and went upstairs for dinner March 31, 2017. Tremendous view with excellent food. We had the pot stickers for an appetizer, and they were extremely good. I enjoyed the veal piccata, and my wife went on and on about the rack of lamb. So why only a three rating? The cheesecake was dry, but... More

We stayed at the Ilikai so thought we'd visit Sorentos at least for Happy Hour one evening. We sat at the bar, so didn't get to enjoy the fabulous views, but the ambience is great, and there was a pianist playing, and we enjoyed visiting with the bartender and the other patrons at the bar. I ordered the cucumber gimlet... More
