    Fresh, delicious Chinese food. Sizzling soup is a great starter. Sesame beef is the best!

    The food was delicious. Spicy for those who like spicy and medium for the rest of us. Loved eating off a "real" table cloth and the service was great. Looking forward to returning and trying more dishes.

    While the food and service were outstanding, I thought it was a bit overpriced, considering that it was Chinese food. Chicken is not that comparatively expensive to other meats, yet my three chicken meals totaled well over 50 dollars. Not only that, but 4 dollars a piece for small glasses of apple juice is a bit pricey too.

    This was an absolutely lovely chinese restaurant. A little bit fancy (fresh orchids garnished the plates), but in a I-wish-more-chinese-restaurants-would-do-that sort of way. The food was phenomenal; the flavors were light and delicate, the vegetables fresh and beautiful. I picked them because they have a gluten-free menu and they note which dishes contain peanuts. But man was the food good. We also had the absolutely most perfectly paired wine (I know, right?). But something in the Seafood Treasure with Abolone turned the Sauvingnon Blanc we were recomended into this almost tawny port tinted deliciousness. I don't know, but after one bite of those scallops the wine was just redolent of peanut brittle or carmel corn (in a really good way)!

    Very much enjoyed the great flavors of the dishes I had at Seres. I will be back for the Sesame Beef and a delicious ginger flavored cocktail. Expect to pay a few dollars more for the dishes here versus other Szeuchan restaurants. The service was great and it's a nice atmosphere for an evening out.

    We came to Seres on Thanksgiving because it was one of the few places in tthe neighborhood that had an available reservation. We are so glad they did! The food was some of the best Chinese food we have ever had. On top of that, they have excellent cocktails which can be unusual for a Chinese restaurant. Service was outstanding; very friendly and attentive. Give it a try, we'll be going back.

    Great service and good food, nice ambiance, and great location. Though a little spendy, the serving sizes are big enough to take home and good enough as well. The spring rolls were pretty average, but everything else was pretty good.

    We have been going to this restaurant for many years, and are impressed that they have been able to maintain a high-quality, consistent product for the entire time. I am still amazed at how fresh the broccoli tastes. We both had hot & sour soup, which is really good. My spouse had fried shrimp, which she loves, and I had the lo mein. Everything tasted very good. While not the center of the restaurant, the bar really does make a very good cocktail.

    We had a great dining experience at Seres restaurant. The food was excellent and the service was great. We had a variety of appetizers (Peking Duck Salad Rolls were scrumptious). For dinner we had the Mongolian Beef and it was excellent! We love the location and we'll definitely be back to try more dishes off the menu!
