This is our third time at this restaurant. Each time we took friends with us. It is a storefront in a small strip mall don't turn back. Once inside you will find the food is excellent and the service just as good. The food steak-fish-salads and apps all very good. BYOB. Give it a try you will not be disappointed.... More

I've eaten here too many times to count with my husband and a few friends. In an area starving for upscale dining, we finally have a true gem in Toms River. The menu changes every 2/3 weeks, and typically will offer a selection across all preferences - seafood, beef, chicken, veal, pork. And fabulously they have many gluten free options... More

Another BYOB shore restaurant that stands heads over the typical shore place. The menu changes every 3 weeks with beef, chicken, pork or several fish on the menu. We think that the fish is the best but we have never had a bad meal. The calamari app is the best that I ever had. Service is efficient and friendly. They... More

We had a group of eight meet at Serenity for dinner. The menu has some nice choices and the place is BYOB. However, the prices for appetizers and entrees are very high for a small store front in a highway strip mall. It's worth going once and forming your own opinion.

Not really a cafe... Much too upscale. Not a place you would just wander into as it is located at the end of an undistinguished strip center. But, the food is generally really good. Fresh, tasty, creative, nicely presented, frequent specials, excellent bread, home made ice cream. A bit cramped and noisy. Service is good but not great... Not very... More

Everything used to be creative, fresh, it was a foodies dream. Greg constantly changed the menu with new and exciting things that many of us had never encountered, his adventurous spirit had us coming back again and again to see what new culinary experiment he was conducting. Now there are a lot of repeats that stay on the menu for... More

Best value anywhere. Truly gourmet food at reasonable prices. Chicken and pork dishes usually under $20. Apps not cheap but what imaginative combinations. PLUS the menu changes every 3 wks & it's BYO,

Quality food and good service. Soups, sandwiches, and salads. Lunch is always good. Clean dinning room! Nothing fancy but good for business meeting.
