Went for Restaurant Week. We were not disappointed. Been to Serenity 2 other times. First was great, second was ok. This time made up for any negativity when we had our second visit. Highly recommend.

We went because we really wanted French food. We were thrilled with not only the food, but the entire experience! Wendy helped make sure our service was excellent. Chef Todd was willing to customize our orders as needed and everything was amazing. We will be back, not just because of the amazing food and service, but because of the amazing mission of this establishment.

We went on the first night of restaurant week. Overall, the food was excellent, however, the Escargot wasn't as good as I have had there in the past. I suspect it was not the usual Escargot because of restaurant week. It was good but not the best.

The special was halibut and it was a bit dry.

The Beet salad was basically a salad with a few beets and a very small amount of goat cheese not what you’d expect.

When the founding chef was here, the food presentation and quality was much better.

We will continue to go back to support the cause of this restaurant that supports people in recovery, but we’ll be a little more questioning about dishes before we order.

We enjoyed the lunch and the prices were reasonable. We will return and
liked the ambiance. We both had the French onion soup and I had the the steak-frites.
My partner had the French dip and fries and both dishes were delicious. The server waited until we finished our soup before bringing our hot main courses. The fries were delivered hot and were tasty.

Have visited in past but not recently. Service was attentive but the food was very subpar from my previous recollection. Plus we were seated right below a speaker where music was blaring. Overall a very disappointing dining experience. Will not repeat anytime soon.

New waiter had lots of help, but has potential. Otherwise, fine evening dining on the porch. Good selection of specials, well described. Plenty of light and vegetarian options.

This is a dinner experience. The sauces on the food was beyond words. Portions were generous, flavors woke up the taste buds, staff was kind, prompt and appeared to ENJOY their work. There were 5 of us in our party and we each got a different entree. We all enjoyed everything we ordered. Please keep this program going.

This was our second of hopefully many dinners at Serenitè, a gem of a restaurant. Just as they were the first time we were there, the escargots were fabulous and have me looking forward to my next visit. Our other dishes ranged from ok (cold melon soup, sundried tomato tarte) to very good (scallops with shrimp sauce, lobster thermador). Good desserts, excellent coffee, and very nice wine list. What a treat to enjoy very good French cooking in a sweet setting. We love the mission of this restaurant - the story in itself is well worth the drive to Medina.

Great place, and I love that they support a community who is working to better themselves. the ambiance was classic and vintage in an unstuffy way. The food and it’s presentation were superb, the wine and cocktails were on point. Every staff member was dedicated to our pleasurable dining experience. We will for certain be back!

This was our first outing since the shutdown and we were not disappointed! All of our courses were absolutely delicious. The staff is very knowledgeable about pacing courses and were also well-versed making recommendations for beverages and cheeses. This restaurant is also a culinary & service "school" for individuals in drug/addiction recovery - this was a great way to enjoy a night out with delicious food, while helping others, too. We will be back!
