Worth the price but not on a budgetExquisite food & presentation but very pricey. Good sized portions and so we were cimfortably full when we left.
Attentive friendly service. When restaurant is busy, noise is bothersome making conversation difficult.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time but not the last time.We've lived in Chatham for 6 years and It was our first time at Serenade but it certainly will not be our last.

Beautifully prepared and presented dishes.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a pleasureWe're never disappointed in Serenade. This time we had the seafood tasting menu with the wine pairings, which was something we hadn't tried before. It was perfection. The food, the wine, the service--we couldn't have asked for a better evening. We were concerned that having an early reservation time (6:30) we would be rushed, but we weren't at all. We have a nice, leisurely dinner and are already looking forward to our next visit.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, service, awesome staffI found the entire staff to be friendly and accommodating. The food was priced reasonably for an upscale restaurant in an affluent section of Morris County, NJ. I got the scallops for appetizer and sea bass for dinner. My wife got the fois gras and hangar steak. All dishes were prepared to specification and contained delightful flavors that mixed well in each dish. For dessert we split a brownie. A staff member came over and offered hot chocolate sauce. We were then surprised with a selection of free sweets.
All the food came out timely. My wife tells me that the staff asked a table next to us to quite down a bit. I didn't notice them being particularly loud. I didn't notice the staff asking them to quiet down either.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely dinner with the in-lawsLovely dinner with the in-laws to celebrate my wife's 40th birthday (dined 4/5/13). Definitely a great place that anyone who appreciates fine dining should try and enjoy. The asparagus soup was nicely light. Chopped salad had good bite, not overly dressed. Salmon exceeded my expectations. Coffee was good, but no second cup offered?4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent restaurant. We'veExcellent restaurant. We've been wanting to go for a long time and finally did. It's easier to get a reservation early in a week. We went on a Monday when it's less crowded.

Our server, Michelle, as well as the sommelier, Charles, were very attentive and knowledgable.
We had a lovely, well-paced, truly enjoyable dining experience. All the dishes were beautifully prepared, from starters to desserts (especially delicious were the pea soup and the lemon meringue "tart.")
