We have eaten at Serevan approximately 2 dozen times over the past 7 years. We have eaten as a couple, as a young family, and with smaller and larger groups of adult friends.

The food is consistently good. The menu, while it does not change very much, is unique and creative and offers enough variety that everyone can find a dish or dishes that interests them. The menu always has an interesting cocktail list, and the wine list is robust enough to have good offerings at different price points. Despite comments from prior reviewers, we have had many interactions with owner/chef Serge and always found him to be pleasant and engaging. When we have the children with us he will often go out of his way to speak to them about the food and where it comes from.

Unfortunately, over the years, the wait staff has been very inconsistent. Service and capability ranging from good to terrible. We have never had issues with attitude, more general aptitude and ability.

We had a vert tasty meal and the service was attentive without being hovering. The chef/owner has, as we say, 'his own agenda', but the food is very good and you may be treated to some restaurant staff drama. Portions are ample and well executed, with some interesting flavors courtesy of the chef's Persian heritage.

I can’t say enough about the food and staff at the place. Awesome dinner experience. Not inexpensive, but no complaints as everything was excellent. Great place for couples.

We haven't been back for a couple of years. Middle eastern/Mediterranean menu has changes since last visit. The food is very well prepared especially with the local ingredients. The service was good and the main dining room comfortable.

Serevan is one of the best gourmet experiences and worthy of a special occasions. The most unusual and exciting items on the menu are middle east inspired which are well executed by chef-owner Serge. And there is lots for the more traditional diner. I had sublime ribs that fell off the bone. My guest had the freshest sea scallops flown in from Cape Cod. True to everything offered is the quality of the ingredients and the excellent preparation. A welcoming bar is located in the entrance room. The dining areas are cozy on the first floor of a renovated farm home. The restaurant is open on Mondays which is good to remember.
