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

A friend of mine told me that we were going to eat at this nice place in Chatham where his parents celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary in 2006. I was a little skeptical at first but when we got there, we sat at the bar area and had a nice relaxing time. the presentation of the food was one of... More

This was my second time dining at Serenade. My first experience years ago had been very good. We started off with salads which were delicious. For my main course I ordered the lobster. It was extremely chewy, I could barely cut through it with a knife. For dessert I ordered the carrot cake which I did not like at all.... More

One of my very favorite restaurants anywhere--have been here dozens of times. The food is seasonal and fresh, yet beautifully presented. Bar is fun and you can grab dinner there if tables are all full, but it can get quite crowded. Love the complimentary desert plate at the end with little candies--makes you feel so special!

I have had a large party holiday gathering here, intimate dinner for two here and met friends for drinks at the wine bar that is unparalleled. From the exceptional servers to the exquisite cuisine this restaurant has impressed even a dear friend who is an international chef when we dined here. Highly recommend and hope to always enjoy this fine... More
