    Need to work on plate presentation. Maybe add a little veggie and less mash potatoes. Need more wall decor for added color in dining area.

    The steak was caked in butter and not in a good way and the mojitos tasted like syrup. Never dinning in at their steakhouse again.

    I really wanted to like this place but was disappointed. It looked like the more casual, bar area was fun and had better food.

    The steaks were too salty, and the vegetables were served cold. Disappointing for the prices, we were hoping for a great steakhouse meal.

    We have eaten breakfast at serendipity in the past. My wife and I are celebrating our anniversary. We were impressed with their aging process for their cuts of beef displayed at the restaurant. I ordered the filet mignon. With a side order of grilled Brussel sprouts. Excellent cut of beef. Seasoning is heavier than I am accustomed to on a cut of meat. The service was good. I posted on the reservation we were celebrating our wedding anniversary—no comments from the staff.

    Not impressed with service or quality of Steak house. Bar area service and ambiance was great. Willing to go back and try the Cafe side next time.

    First time there. Sat in the bar area for Happy Hour with 3 friends. Veronica took wonderful care of us - doing double duty between the tables and bar, but we never felt neglected. Food was beautifully presented and delicious. I would absolutely try the regular dining side based on the quality in the bar. We shared the tempura avocado, fried zucchini, hot wings (and a second order since they were so good) and a few other items. At the time of this writing, Happy Hour beers were $3 and well drinks were $5 - amazing deal. Probably returning this coming Friday.

    We came here despite some of the poorer ratings on this site. We were pleasantly surprised by how much we enjoyed it! Our server Nick was very attentive and courteous. The meal was all fresh and cooked to perfection. My ribeye was amazing! The wine list did not disappoint. I really enjoyed the ambiance, nice lighting inside. The value wasn't the greatest, but it's definitely worth returning back. We will be back!

    Absolute worst steakhouse i have ever eaten at. Arrived wearing a nice shirt and wife dressed nice. Looked like a very basic restaurant.. Steaks were brought out during our salad and there was NO flavor at all. We brought almost our whole Filets home to our kids. Cost us $300 without tip and i brought my own $150 wine which was excellent. Could have went to Maestros or Ruth and Chris and spent $50 less and would have been awesome. VERY DISAPPOINTING ESPECIALLY FOR A NICE LOCATION. No right to charge $85 for the worst Fillet Ever........

    Nice remodel. For the LA price the food execution does not measure up. 22 dollars for a top shelf drink is not acceptable.

    The food and service were great. No need to make a reservation for the bar side. They do have different menus for the bar and formal dining. Our waiter was so nice and let me order from the bar menu even though we were seated on the formal side The wedge salad was wonderful and the mussels were amongst the best I’ve ever had. My husband had the Chilean Sea Bass which he loved. Thank you for a very nice local restaurant!!

    The restaurant is way overpriced. It’s new in town so I thought I would try it. It is not suited for the overprice steaks and other meals. The prices are comparable to Mastro‘s or Ruth Chris but the ambience, food, everything about the restaurant does not rise to the level of a Mastro‘s type restaurant. They need to get more reasonable with the prices in order to survive.
