This place was wonderful. The menu had too many items in my wheelhouse, so choosing wisely was imperative. We were feeling seafood so we had oyesters, frog legs, mussels, scallops, and the seafood bisque. Everything was excellent. Next time we are in town we will return !

We had a great time on Sweetest Day with complimentary cards from The Post. I had the Tomahawk Pork Chop. Very generous size and very juicy. Everything was excellent.

Amazing food! Once we heard the chef only makes the lobster bisque just twice a year, we knew we had to have it, and it did not disappoint. So creamy and yummy. I will be back!!

Oh and the service was great, too! I forgot my credit card and my server immediately called to let me know. Thanks for that!!

My wife and I had a magical evening on the patio at Sérénité for our anniversary. Yes, the food itself was worth the drive from Akron to Medina, but the experience was made so much better by the service, especially Sherry. Everyone we met was so gracious, kind and thoughtful, like the entire staff is looking after you. They're like a family, looking out for one another, which makes sense. The restaurant is staffed by students for a culinary school where people in recovery from addiction get a second chance in life, so when the bill for your fantastic meal arrives, you can feel even a little better knowing you've supported an incredible program. We already can't wait to return for our next date night.

Incredible place, food was fantastic and the student staff is incredibly proud to share their stories of success about the mission of Sérénité. It’s a second chance employer that hires people in recovery from substance abuse and gives them an opportunity to shine and learn new skills. They have recovery support services as part of the campus next door to help students and anyone else struggling with addiction. Check it out and get a great meal while supporting a worthy mission!

Our table of four started with three appetizers—oysters, steak tartar, and calamari. All excellent. My halibut entree was prepared perfectly. Everyone loved their food. Both the manager and chef visited our table and our server was attentive.

Once again, we were drawn back to one of our favorite restaurants. This time we tried the Cherries Jubilee for dessert. While not cooked tableside, it was slightly tart and delicious. The salmon and NY strip were awesome!
