The décor is best described as whimsical (think of someone who loves to dress up everything with decorations from Michaels or Hobby Lobby), which is unusual for a restaurant that sits on water with a beautiful view of the bay. My wife found it very fun. Went for lunch on a sunny cold day and sat by the window, which... More

We were visiting friends in the area and they suggested we stop by for some dinner. On a Friday night you would expect a restaurant to have a good crowd. Arriving at dinner time and seeing half the seats available should have been a clue. My seafood combo was $31, and I do regret not just eating a salad for... More

My husband and I went to Serendipity for lunch today. We had been there last year around this time of the year and the food was ok, not great, but the view was nice and on that visit, I ordered lasagna which is supposed to be their specialty. It was nothing special, but the marinara sauce was excellent. Since they... More

This is a quirky little place remotely located away from other restaurants. It is on the Indian River Bay (which is one reason I keep going back, because I get there by boat and park at their dock). The food has always been decent, perhaps not worth 5 stars but still good. If you are in the mood for something... More

We tried this restaurant again. Atmosphere is great, food is fair and service is not good. We were there on a slow night. There was only 1 table there when we arrived. They left and another 2 came later. We were not seated but told to just sit wherever we wanted. We were brought menus. I ordered the soup and... More

Serendipity has a pretty location on the Indian River, although the neighborhood is not the best. Service is good, the food is adequate.

Wonderful lasagna and braised Brussel sprouts! We come here quite often and the food is always good.

My husband and I hadn't been here for at least a year. Our waitress was good and we each ordered an entree. Salads don't come with the dinner but they do have a "bread bar". The dinner rolls were good and even a little warm. Our dinners came and both were lukewarm. We didn't feel like sending them back so... More

I just did not care for the food or the restaurant. Had a fish dish that was covered in some kind of sauce. Had a weird taste. Wife had crab imperial and she it was fine. Bread bar with cold bread was bad.

Good service, but the food arrived Luke warm. I witnessed another diner bring her plate of food to the kitchen door to request that the food be heated. Then the same issue happened at my table. My partner ordered the lasagne, arrived cold, bolognase sauce was overly sweet, pasta was sticky/gummy. I ordered chicken Marsala, arrived at table cold, with... More
