We had an excellent dinner on a Sunday evening after my daughter's high school graduation There was 9 of us ranging in age of 18 to 89 plus a couple of picking eaters. All enjoyed the atmosphere, the food and service It was late and they took orders quickly and the bread and first came out in no time

Some of the memorable items. My mom loved the liver and onions. Very tender and something none of us has seen on the menu. I had delicious lamb chops. Very large portion. My daughter had the salmon and ate it all
They had decorated her chocolate dessert for her graduation. My mom and I split the rhubarb and strawberry tart which was perfect. Not too sweet

Yes it is expensive but worth it for a celebration

Second visit. Work function. Reserved private room. Atmosphere nice. Service excellent. Food very good. About 40 in our group -- easily handled party of this size. Our work location will continue to hold organized dinners here.

I hadn't been here in 15 years. My guess is the chef has changed a few times since then. That said, the food was still excellent - my dining companions were impressed. However, the decor is in serious need of a rehab. Showing it's age! It does detract from the dining experience, and I should knock it down, but let this serve as a warning :-)

I gave serenade a second chance for a friends birthday and I am so glad I did. My first experience was not good and I didn't think I would go back. the reception was much friendlier. The host was very accommodating and genuinely helpful. The service was attentive. I now look forward to going for dinner with my husband.The wine selection was great and the avocado fries tasty, and there was a pork appetizer that was excellent.

Nice turnaround Serenade!

Went in March to celebrate our Anniversary. Sat at the bar area, got there early around 5;30. The bar was empty when we arrived. Elected a nice table. Had delicious cocktails and wine. Ordered some appetizers, were on the small side but scrumptious. The ambience is beautiful. Bar starts to really get packed and people start haunting your table. hat part I didn't like. However, did enjoy our food and drinks. Expensive, but nice.
