Everything was very good at Serenade. I had read an article about the restaurant last summer and was looking forward to having dinner there. It was all a bit too pretentious for my tastes and very pricey. Not expecting to see members of the serving staff standing around in groups most of the evening. All food was price fixed and that caught us by surprise . Had seen no mention of this when we looked through their menu through Open Table. It was a one time experience. Not planning on going back.
A truly iconic restaurant. Great service and creative, well prepared and beautifully presented food. Extensive wine list with moderately priced options along with the special bottles. Short rib ravioli appetizer was both creative and comfortable. Striped bass over a lobster tomato risotto was as good as it sounds.
We've been here before and expected nothing less than perfection! We were not disappointed. I love the decor and atmosphere, the staff is exceptionally professional and friendly, and the food as usual was fabulous! Definitely one of the best in the area! Looking forward to our next visit!
My wife’s fish was undercooked. They merely reheated it without so much as an offer of a complimentary dessert. Waiter stumbled through the specials, clearly distracted by the regulars at the next table. At $40 an entree, best off going elsewhere.
Celebrated our anniversary - was disappointed with the location of the table . right in the middle behind the servers and in front of the entrance to upstairs room. Area was busy and not enjoyable for a special occasion dining.
We had a friends get together there and were all very pleased with the quality of the food, presentation and selections. The wine list is quite pricey, would like to see more moderately priced wines offered. We will definitely go back for a special occasion or two.
