Honolulu and Oahu Restaurants

Sarento's Top of the "I"

Updated 01/17/2014

Fodor's Review

Among restaurants with the best views in Honolulu, 30th-floor Sarento's, which looks toward the Koolau Mountains and the South Shore, is a popular special-date venue. The menu offers regional Italian cuisine, and the tiger prawn scampi and osso buco are local favorites. Meat eaters lean toward the melt-in-your-mouth filet mignon topped with gorgonzola cream sauce. The deep wine cellar contains some gems, and there may not be more attentive service staff in the city. For a less spendy meal, you may want to opt for happy hour and order from their appetizer menu, which is filled with tasty choices.

Gorgeous views! Magnum PI filmed here...

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Ilikai and went up to Sarento's for cocktails with friends. The bar wasn't crowded and offered spectacular views. We had an appetizer which I remember liking, but the main reason to check out Sarento's is the view. Wonderful!
