Our party of four all enjoyed our experience at Serenite. We felt it was a quiet, comfortable and lovely atmosphere. The service was very good and attentive and all of our different dinners were delicious. We have already recommended it to friends.

Outstanding food and service. A one-of-a-kind gem in the area with unique, authentic offerings. Also a cause worth supporting that is giving back to the community. We will definitely be back!

Always a wonderful meal.... tasty and unique. The goat cheese salad never disappoints and the veggies and pasta were superb. Wine is great and I can never stop with one glass. Staff was incredibly attentive but not overbearing. All our needs were met. We choose it as our favorite restaurant and always bring guests to join us when they visit!

First time here. The brunch was some of the best food we’ve had- especially in Medina. The staff was fabulous and friendly. Everything was fresh and SO delicious. We’ve already talked about going back next weekend. The other plus is what they are doing for people in recovery and what the entire restaurant is about- what a smart & truly heartwarming idea. Everyone deserves a second chance and this is a fantastic place to start. Bravo! My only thought- maybe put the food on the bar so there is more room for people to get to it. Just a thought.

The attention from the staff was phenomenal. The food choices were great - we had a party of four and each tried something different. We were all very happy with our dinners. And the desserts were awesome! This restaurant also has a mission and the Maitre d warmly asked us if we knew of the mission and if we wanted more information. We have already recommended Serenite to friends.

My first visit to Serenite will not be my last. I ordered the filet mignon, mushroom risotto, and a glass of Bordeaux. I finished the dinner with Creme Brulee. Everything was wonderful. I am looking forward to trying more items on the menu.

It was a cold, rainy night yet it was comfortable in the dining room. The restaurant was nearly full and the patrons were chatty and laughing....a very pleasant ambiance. The scallops were excellent and the half chicken was perfect. Great service and drinks rounded off the evening. We’ll be back!

"I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The roasted chicken was amazing and the house lettuce salad was refreshing. The other persons thought the burger, salmon and mushroom Napoleon entrees were great. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable."

We enjoyed this restaurant, especially my husband who likes French cuisine. His steak with Bernaise sauce was tender and delicious. I chose the vegan Mushrooms Napoleon which was probably not the best choice for this restaurant. I didn't care for the grilled flavor or the coulis sauce and probably would have preferred them roasted. Service and atmosphere was nice in a very intimate setting though the music choices could have been more appropriate.

We went to the brunch at Serenite restaurant this past Sunday (Feb 24). We were seated immediately. Our server was very polite and helpful. Our favorite item on the buffet was the roast beef. It was delicious. The ham was very tasty but on some pieces it was a little dry. We did not get an omelette but they looked very good. I tried the scrambled eggs and they were very dry. Need to get these cooked better. Bacon and sausage were both good. The waffles tasted good but were crispy. I feel they were setting in the pan for awhile. Would have been nice if they had been fresher. My husband had them and was not pleased. I tried a bit and the flavor was there but I opted not to get any for myself. The strawberry compote that I used on my crepe was excellent. The potatoes were good. Salad bar area was also good with a lot of choices. I heard the ratatouille was good but neither of us had this item. The fruit they had was watermelon, melons, strawberries, pineapple and grapes and they were fresh and very good. There were also bagels and danish type breads. I would recommend the brunch to a friend if they can get the eggs done better as well as the waffles. These are two items I really enjoy. Also want to mention that all the people who worked in the buffet area were very friendly.

Came for dinner with some friends who have never been at Serenite before. They equally agreed that the food, mission of helping those in recovery, and ambiance were fantastic. Although the restaurant was extremely busy and they had some new students on the floor, the service and food was superb! Will be back whenever possible!

My husband and I have eaten at Edwin's in Shaker Hts. but had never tried its Medina restaurant, Serenite! So, we decided to try it and took 4 of our family members as well. All of us really loved the cuisine and the service was just great. My husband is still talking about his meal choices but everyone in our group really enjoyed it and we all said we'd be back.

Wonderful French food in a teaching restaurant. Serenite has a mission to train recovering addicts in fine food cooking and serving. You will see observers following experienced servers and chefs mentoring others. Bear that in mind.

The food is absolutely fabulous. It was pricy but still less than it's competition in the Akron area. And NOBODY else makes a real coq au vin.
