No question that Serenade is for that very special occasion where a significant celebration or important business dinner is in order. First class food, excellent service, beautiful atmosphere (and priced accordingly) make for a very memorable meal and occasion.

My husband and I have been going to Serenade every Valentine's Day for 8 years. It is a very special place. The menu is fixed that night. The experience is very special. We have never been disappointed. I would not go on a regular day. In understand the review about the bartender attitude. It is really sad how one or... More

Went for a romantic dinner and it was a wonderful experience. The food was delicious and fresh, and the wine was tremendous. The décor was modern, high end, and relaxing. What was most impressive was the service. Every staff member catered to us and truly cared about their roles. They were attentive and friendly, knowledgeable about the menu, even made... More

Very average. Went here for dinner this past Tuesday with my mom, my husband and my brother for a belated Mothers Day dinner. In short the title says it all - while I found their food to be basically fresh, a major drawback was that both my appetizer (an asparagus soup) AND my entree (a fish dish with a lobster... More

Really terrific food here - had the scallops with the coconut sticky rice. Chocolate tart was incredible. Service was great and appreciated that they had women as wait staff - most high end places do not. Expensive but you get what you pay for. Can't say I was in love of the decor - the grey carpet, the wood grain... More

I have been going to Restaurant Serenade since it first reopened with Owner Chef James Laird. Granted, it is not inexpensive, so I don't go as often as I would like but over the years I have found this consistently to be the place to go for a special occasion or with special people for a wonderful meal. We also... More

Although it is sometimes crowded, you receive great service and great food. They always have so many choices.

I'm sorry, but I did not think this place was that great. Bar scene - a sullen bartender with no personality serves up drinks and food to stuck up, waspy Chathamites. Doesn't offer bread from the overflowing basket of bread behind him at the bar. Offers stale, unappealing popcorn. Short rib tortellini - pretty bland, overcooked pasta (not al dente,... More

I recently dined at Serenade on January 25, 2014. The food was fabulous AS ALWAYS. I started with pumpkin soup, perfect for a cold night. The flavor was rich without the soup being heavy. My main course lobster was delicious and beautifully prepared. For dessert I opted for the fresh lemon tart. That too had great flavor and presentation. Staff... More

We arrived for an early dinner at this formal french eatery; there is Valet Service. I first observed the unusually high number of Wait staff and attributed it to the fact that we were early diners and there were few other patrons dining. Later on I observed the ratio of Wait staff was above average which resulted in quick, courteous,... More
