Serra's Bar & Grill
This fun spot features live music and lots of dancing. The music ranges from Latin and salsa to exotic Middle Eastern that makes you want to shake your body in ways you have never done before. This is a good place for a first date—you can tell a lot about someone by the way they dance or, in fact, whether they dance at all.
I definetely love the variety of music Serra's plays. It satisfys most tastes, I am Latin and my husband is Persian, so we enjoy the music.
We have dined there and find the food good as well.
I always recommend it to others who have an international flair.
I LOVED SERRA'S! SERRA'S EVERY THURSDAY NIGHT!
Thursday nights is a full package. Serra has a Fantastic Band called the Gypsy's Boy's. These guys are Gypsy and they play the most incredible rhumba fusion and disco dance music. They play a good selection of music that kind of takes you to the 70's disco with a gypsy Flamenco flavor that is just too hot! I can dance all night long with them even by myself!
Serra's has a delightful buffet all Middle Eastern - and I remember it was complimentary I didn't drink but the Bar set-up is awsome. It's a wholesome way to start the evening.
The biggest surprise at Serra's was the bellydancer's! "Manuela" Is a great Bellydancer. She's got the best Choreography that is mezmerizing, she gave me goose bumps! Manuela has got to be Gypsy, because she even dances Flamenco just like the way they do in Seville. I know I've seen this girl before!
Then there's "Farah" She's a Goddess. She had on the most sexiest costume of green and gold like a real "Egyptian Queen". Farah dances so smooth I dugg out every single bill I had in my wallet and put it in her belt as she shimmied by my table.
I am going to Serra's every thursday for now on. OH YEAH! The DJ is SAUCY I danced to Persian, Arabian and PowerHouse music. I had A BLAST! SERRA'S IS A GREAT PLACE TO GO.
Serra is literally steps from the Sawdust Festival grounds. The interior decor was fun/funky. We started our meal with an apertif of "Lion's Milk", a sort of Turkish ouzo, which was delicious. We had appetizers of hummus and pita and dolmas (grape leaves), both of which were delicious. The pita bread was literally hot out of the oven, and the best I've ever had. They list Turkish wine on the menu but apparently have it only sporadically if at all now, because their supply was not reliable; a pity, as we like to try ethnic wines in ethnic restaurants. However, their wine list of California domestics was fine.
My friend's entree was described as a sort of "Turkish ravioli" - it came in a large bowl with a red and cream sauce, little pillows of dough that looked like mini-dumplings. She said it was very good.
Our waiter recommended chicken dishes, so I took a chance on the chicken curry, which turned out to be a pleasant surprise. So often chicken in overcooked, but this was not - kebabs of chicken, brushed with a curry sauce and then grilled to perfection, with just enough of the curry flavor, not overpowering. This was served with a good plain basmati/pilaf type of rice, and vegetables, which in this case were various grilled peppers and onions, nicely done. We finished off with baklava which was of course extremely rich, and very good indeed.
Service was attentive and personal; we enjoyed our young Turkish waiter, who was cheerful and helpful regarding menu choices.
Prices were moderate and reasonable. Appetizers in the $4-10 range, entrees in the $12-16 range. I would definitely recommend Serras.
