Spectacular food in a quiet surround! The wait staff is professional however, the service is much too rushed for this type of restaurant. There is no time between courses.

As a local, I love Restaurant Serenade. The food is creative and always delicious. The chef ensures that fresh local produce is used whenever possible and the seafood is delectable.
