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 as well. The buffalo calamari is an appetizer that is ALWAYS on the menu, because it simply is the BEST buffalo calamari you will ever have. Tender, tender, with just the right amount of heat in the buffalo. And I don't even like calamari, but I have it every time we go to Serenity. Shrimp fra diavolo - perfection! Steak au poivre - best I've ever had!! This New Year's Eve was a 5 course fixed menu that top to bottom was literally was the best meal I've ever had.
The staff is courteous and professional, the restaurant clean and modern. Reservations are pretty much required, particularly on weekends. Expect to open your wallet a bit, but it's worth every penny.
