Make sure to take the specified elevator for the restaurant. If getting the ceaser salad know that it's very large and ask for dressing on the side. It was drenched in the dressing.

The best part of this meal was the hummus that comes with the bread basket. The bread was way too stale and salty. The overcooked fresh catch and Oso Buco were about what I'd expect from the frozen food aisle at Costco.

Very disappointing meal. Poor bread; not typical of a Italian Restaurant. Caesar salad greens were very bitter & dressing not very tasty. My Chicken Rigatoni's chicken was over-cooked; could not eat (pasta & sauce was very good). My date's Shrimp Scampi had over-cooked rubbery shrimp; could not eat. (sauce & pasta was good). Finally Caramel Gelato tasted old with freezer burn: also could not eat. However; service was very good. We have visited Sarento's for special occasions for 20 years; always had exceptional food and service. Very disappointing; even with a Groupon, we will not return. Last week we ate at Macaroni Grill; not as much ambiance, but we had excellent food and service, for less $$.

I had high expectations for the food but they were not met. The food is mediocre, at best. Service and ambiance are great.

Awesome view but, service wasn't excellent. They had never asked us everything was good or not. Food was ok, seafood pasta was super spicy and killed other flavor. if we pay that amount of money, we expect better quality, taste of food. if I think, "I can do better than this " I don't need to go to the restaurant w paying a lot money .... It was training for new server or something, it didn't create good atmosphere. I thought / expected The restaurant would be fine dining , but overall , it wasn't
