Perfect unplanned evening on a cold January night. We wanted to warm up and have a drink at the bar. Just a few appetizers was what we wanted, as the place was really busy and noisy. We had dinner here on couple of occasions in the past and overall we quite like the place. Rated one of the best in... More

Six of us had dinner on a Thursday night to celebrate a birthday. The service is good, if a little slow to take our orders. The food is very good and came as requested. All the appetizers were praised. The Lobster Bisque was excellent. Liver was praised by one. This is not an ordinary dish so it was nice to... More

We have eaten at Restaurant Serenade several times to mix things up for special occasions. This year we chose Restaurant Serenade for a delayed Valentine's Day, when prices were not inflated and things were not so busy. Over all, the meal was good, but there were some hiccups. The biggest issue was that our appetizers were brought to the table... More

My wife and I booked serenade for Valentines Day. When we got there we realized that only a 3-course pre fix menu for $135 per person plus extra for wine pairing was available. The a la carte menu was not available, something they did not mention at the website. The dinner turned out to be very mediocre. Don't they know... More

We were here for Valentine's Day and they were slammed and were focused on turning tables and getting us in and out ( 58 minutes start to finish) We were seated by the kitchen door which was very very busy ( and not serene!) The food was average and mass produced and the service focused on pushing fine wines etc... More

Had a great anniversary/valentine's day celebration. We had a 6:30pm Reservation, and at first they told us the table was ready, closed the bar tab, only to find out the table wasn't ready yet, for another 30 minutes when they did seat us. On a Saturday night, it's a price fixe menu. Plenty of choices, inclusive of appetizer/salad, entree and... More
