In ten years living near Cleveland, the meal my wife and I had here was one of the three best ever in Cleveland. The menu was innovative, my wife's filet was cooked to perfection and delicious, the brussels sprouts were not too salty, as usually...More

We love to come to Sarita and see what the chef has cooked up. There is always a pierogi special that is killer. They make great smoked meats as well. Most recently we tried the gazpacho and it was one of the best I've had....More

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 restaurant is owned by executive chef Romano and his best friend, Sandy Smith. The pair first met at Players 16 years ago and have been inseparable ever since. Their approach to Sarita is fairly simple: to create a space that's a reflection of their friendship...relaxing, fun and celebrate life in the company of friends and family with good food and a great cocktail in hand.
