    Wine, cocktails, and food were amazing. Absolutely fresh ingredients and exemplary service. One of the few NJ restaurants that are charging high prices and are actually the same quality as NYC. So worth it for an evening out.

    Lovely Mother’s Day brunch! The fixed menu had plenty of options, we especially enjoyed the halibut. The service was warm and welcoming. The restaurant was packed, but we never felt rushed. Beautiful ambiance for a special occasion.

    Serenade is a lovely place to dine. The menu is wonderful and presents several options. We ordered the tasting menu with wine pairing. 3 out of 4 courses the wine pairing did not come and had to be asked for. Two came when we were more than half way through the course. When it did come it was poured quickly or a glass was brought out so couldn’t even see what was poured. No demonstration of what it was and no explanation about the wine. Just don’t offer a wine pairing if this is the best you can do! The food was great. Service just not good. For the prices they need to step up the service.

    Probably my mistake. Made last minute reservation. Have eaten here many times. Didn’t know Saturday night is a pre fix menu. Had to order way more food than we wanted which obviously drives up the price. In this economy this seems a little crazy but place was busy so maybe I’m wrong. Food was really good and service excellent. Price brings down my rating. Won’t be back in a Saturday. Requiring people to order more than they want doesn’t sit well with me

    Serenade was terrific in all ways; the food and service was excellent. While there were other patrons sitting in relatively close proximity, we could not hear their conversations and the background music was low, so we could have good conversation at our table without speaking ourselves loudly. A great night.

    Tuna tartare appetizer was excellent, the rest of the food (Thai lobster chowder, lemon sole, and rabbit pappardelle) was average. Prices are very high, particularly on the entrees so would have expected more flavor and higher quality. Our server was excellent, kind and attentive but not overly so.

    We had the tasting menu last night and things were off. The short rib tortellini (normally amazing) was cold and seemed pre prepared as it might have been sitting around. Lemon sole presentation was colorless and uninspired plate. Corn soup was ol, should have been more significant corn flavor and the berry compote for dessert lacked some sweetness. We're normally huge fans of Serenade and been dining there for years, but it just wasn't up to its usual top notch food last night.

    Good food but way overpriced. For what you are paying you can do much better elsewhere. Even the drinks are the highest I’ve ever paid. When you walk out of there after dinner you will say to yourself it wasn’t bad but not worth the money. The place won’t knock your socks off.

    They forgot one of my guests orders so for dinner and dessert they kept putting the wrong dishes down in front of people and we had to keep telling them where to place everything. They ended up comp’ing the entree, but for the price and the level of service, I wouldn’t expect them to completely forget to enter one of the dishes ordered.

    The pre-fixe offered a lot of selections which was great. Sadly they had run out of one of the specials and two of our meals, the lamb and the pork were both overcooked. My appetizer was delicious -the crabcake.

    Started with cocktails which were excellent. The Cosmo is made with muddled cranberries instead of juice and added incredible taste. Espresso martini excellent as well. My tuna tartar was unusual with very thin slices of tuna which mixed with the other components to make a nice bite. Wife’s salad was excellent. Sourdough rolls were excellent. I had the sole (not Dover) entree over risotto which was good but not great…fish slightly overcooked. Wife had the hanger steak over roasted root vegetables and mashed potatoes. Incredibly tender steak, not at all chewy, matched well with vegetables. Friends had the scallops special and were very pleased. Creme brûlée dessert OK, not great….should have gone with the chocolate tart. Service was outstanding. Unfortunately, the room is not at all sound insulated and there were two large parties who seemed to be competing for “loudest party award”. Fortunately this did not detract from our enjoyment of our companions. Overall, a very good restaurant with some choices better than others. Will definitely return.

    Thank you for your detailed review! We're glad to hear that you enjoyed your cocktails, especially the unique Cosmo with muddled cranberries. It's great that the tuna tartare, your wife's salad, and the sourdough rolls were all excellent. We appreciate your feedback on the sole and are pleased that your wife's hanger steak was tender and well-matched with the vegetables. We're happy to hear that your friends were pleased with the scallops special. Your feedback on the creme brûlée is noted, and we hope you'll try the chocolate tart next time. We're thrilled that the service was outstanding and look forward to welcoming you back for more enjoyable dining experiences. Warm regards, Dorin Pislaru General Manager

    Restaurant Serenade is an absolute gem nestled right within our nj community, sparing us the hustle of venturing into NYC for an exceptional dining experience. From the moment you step through its doors, you're enveloped in a warm embrace of hospitality that sets the tone for an unforgettable evening. The ambiance at Restaurant Serenade is inviting, with its elegant yet cozy atmosphere. We were simply enjoying a Sunday night out, loved the ambiance how it effortlessly complements the food – consistently excellent is an understatement. From the first bite to the last, every flavor harmonizes beautifully, leaving a lasting impression on even the most discerning palate. We both had the filet steak and Nancy salad and the newly added shrimp dish. The portions were large had to enjoy it the next day. Love the flavors and textures that tantalize my taste buds. What truly sets Restaurant Serenade apart is its unwavering commitment to excellence From the service to the exquisite presentation of each dish, every detail is thoughtfully curated its memorable Lucky to have this in our town - In a world where dining experiences often blur into the mundane, Serenade exceeds expectations and leaves a lasting impression

    Food was excellent. Our waiter wasn’t the best, felt rush and wasn’t very friendly. He never explained the menu and felt annoyed when we asked his recommendations. We sat upstairs at a corner table and felt excluded from the rest of the restaurant. Would recommend asking for a downstairs table. Overall it was fine but we aren’t rushing back.
