It's been years since I've been to Sareentos. Forgot how good their food is. The inside looks very dated. Like it hasn't been renovated, ever. But the big booths are nice...ambience very romantic. It's nice not being too close to the other people dining there. Our server was excellent. Very calm. We weren't rushed, etc. when we asked for a... More

Was lucky enough to have dinner at this place. Had a window seat & going from evening to dark was amazing with all the lights from all buildings. The food was outstanding, the martinis superb and the service attentive. I recommend making a reservation & spending a few hours enjoying the food, drink, view & atmosphere.

The view is spectacular and the service equals the view. The food was also amazing and the staff were extremely personable and saw to it that we had a wonderful experience. We had a few different meals and each one was visually very appealing and the tastes were spectacular. I chose the double pork chop on a bed of mashed... More

We went here for happy hour twice in the eight days we were in Hololulu. Each time we sat at the bar which has a great view of the ocean. There is one high table for four in the corner near the bar with windows on two sides; this is the best view, but we never got there in time... More

We had dinner here on a Friday night and requested a window seat to see the standard Friday night fireworks put on by the Hyatt on the beach. The food was amazing and the views spectacular. We'd love to go back again soon.

We went for my husbands birthday. We had a great view of the Friday night fireworks from the Hilton's Lagoon. The food was really good although the prices were kind of high. The staff was friendly and very helpful with suggestions.

Fantastic food and great service with a view. Prices are fair for fine dining. Always a pleasure to eat at for a celebration, special moment, or just to treat yourself.

Come Saturday or Wednesday and order a $10 special drink. Then get bargain bar food and wine specials. Meatballs, calamari and tenderloin sliders all tasty. The regular menu is expensive.

Pretty expensive for the quality, check the menu before you book a reservation. Probably a great place in the '70's, could easily use a face lift.

Fantastic Italian restaurant atop the Ilikai Hotel. A fantastic view for Honolulu, Waikiki, and the ocean at night. Although the view was fantastic, the food was even better. We both had salad which were extremely good. We both had Italian dishes which were cooked perfectly. The dessert was also fantastic. I'm sorry I just found this place now after many... More
