Food prepared well, service good. Recommend the experience.
We love this restaurant—Bradford and the whole staff are great. The cheese board is absolutely wonderful.
Great service, friendly staff. Meal was outstanding
The food was delicious with tableside bananas foster. The servers were attentive.
We went for brunch and the food was very delicious. The waitstaff is very attentive and friendly.
The food was delicious and the staff was polite and attentive too!
Brunch was amazing. Everyone in our group loved everything they tried. The staff was kind and accommodating. I try to come here as often as possible. It is really Medina’s best restaurant.
From the moment we entered, the quiet romantic atmosphere was very pleasing. We were welcomed and out coats were collected and hung for us in the coat room. The staff was very efficient and polite. The food was delicious. We have already recommended Sérénité to our family and friends.
Great experience overall. I love what they’re doing there. Food - delicious. Server - attentive and helpful.
Wonderful dinner, service and ambience. Really enjoyed our well-prepared dinner of steak and scallops. A hidden gem in Medina!
friendly staff, caring
Onion soup delicious and so was New York prime steak
Bradford & his staff are doing a tremendous job. The food is fantastic and the staff is very attentive. A great place to have a wonderful evening and support a very worthy endeavor.
Entrees were mediocre. Definitely NOT in the same category as EDWINS
Always outstanding! Service and food are fantastic and ambiance is perfect. Such a special place with an incredible mission helping others in recovery get a second chance.
The best restaurant in Medina ! Gilbert Brenot is the best chef ! We love his Escargot ! Very good French restaurant ! It’s in a historic Medina , Ohio .
Highly recommend 😋
My wife and I have eaten here a number of times. Twice we've brought out of town guests. Every time the experience has been excellent. While the fixtures and ambience are kind of making the best of the available space it's still more than acceptable. Between the four of us Saturday night we had escargot, charcuterie, Salmon, Filet Mignon Au Poirvre, Duck confit, and a delicious but reasonably affordable Saint-Emilion Bordeaux. All the food was terrific, preparation was perfect. The service was thoughtful and present when needed without asking but not overbearing. We continue to have this kind of experience each time. We'll be back.
We had an excellent meal. Service was outstanding and attentive. Will go again!
I've been wanting to go to the restaurant since I knew they were open. I think what they are doing is a great service to those recovering from substance abuse. It gives them a purpose. Everyone was very helpful and knowledgeable. I enjoyed the food I ordered. The lobster was a good size for the price. The dessert I had Banana's Foster was made tableside and was delicious. I will go back and highly recommend it to others.
Outstanding, fresh food with crepes & omelettes made to order
We were a party of four on a Saturday evening around 7:30. The restaurant was full and it seemed that there weren't enough wait staff for the volume of patrons. Our waiter was very pleasant and knowledgeable about the menu, but we were disappointed that they had run out of the venison dish which two of us wanted to try. Five minutes later, the waiter returned to inform us that they were also out of the pasta dish; I've never heard of a restaurant running out of pasta. Took awhile for the entrees to come out, but we weren't in a hurry so not a problem. The cocktails were were perfectly made and the duck leg with risotto was superb! The tenderloin fillet was also a hit with the group. The chocolate duo dessert was a nice ending. If not for the lack of a couple of signature entree items on the menu, it would have been a nearly perfect evening.
One of the BEST meals I've ever had. I cannot emphasize this enough- T.H.E. B.E.S.T! Appetizer: Escargot; Main: Hanger steak with Brussel Sprouts, Bearnaise; Dessert: Beignets, Drink: Mule de Noel... all- UNBELIEVABLE! The Meat was cooked perfectly as I requested and all the flavors exploded in my mouth as if I hadn't had a meal in Weeks. Excellent Wait staff and Hosts, very knowledgeable, always wore a smile and very attentive to the table with refills and answering questions but not annoyingly attentive, which is an art. An hidden Gem in Medina. And the story of this place/business and it's mission makes it even better. Very excited to support this business in the future and will recommend to everyone.
It was a very busy night on a Valentine’s Day which is always crazy, but the food was awesome and staff were super nice
My wife and I went for the first time for Valentine's Day. The restaurant was obviously very busy and some things we're falling behind schedule. However, despite the circumstances they were faced with the staff was extremely accommodating and very friendly. They kept us up to date with the progress of the night, profusely apologizing that they were behind. The transparency and attentiveness went a long way.
When the food did arrive, it was a delight. My wife enjoyed her lobster and I couldn't get enough of my fillet but after dessert was finished off I found myself entirely content with my portions. I was very much full, but not stuffed. Our night was wonderful and we can't wait to come back to experience the full menu.
We went for Valentine’s Day and it was perfect! They ran out of the entree I had ordered but we had a later reservation so it was to be expected, especially because the entree sounded too good to pass up. The staff were tremendous, very courteous and on top of things. Some of the nicest and respectful staff that I’ve encountered at a restaurant. It was a very busy night and they handled it like pros. 1000000% will go back and will recommend it to everyone!! I’m so happy that this restaurant is so close! Usually we have to drive up to Cleveland and beyond for a great meal!
Food and atmosphere where wonderful. Service was very slow (Valentine’s Day). I’ll definitely give them another try
Food was very good and for Valentine's Day they had a wine pairing price fixe menu. Excellent food and cant wait to go back and try every day menu. A true gem here in Medina!
We have been to Serenite many times. I think our overall experience this time with the food, the service and overall friendliness of the staff was the best ever. We will return for sure.
The food was very good, as was the service. The only thing we didn't like was that, like so many other restaurants do on a special occasion like Valentine's Day, the menu was limited to a special few selections. When we reviewed the menu earlier, when we booked, there was many items my husband likes (it was his birthday we were celebrating), but on Valentine's Day, most of those items were not available. However, I will say that the Valentine's Day price packages probably cost us less than had we ordered from the menu. That said, we still would have preferred to pick from the normal menu. Otherwise, the food and overall experience was a good one. We would probably return, but not on a special holiday.
Great food, great service!
The food and service were excellent. What I like about Serenite is that there is no pressure to leave and the whole is experience is unhurried and very gracious.
Besides the wonderful food, our server (Abbey I believe was her name), was attentive to our needs. She was there when we needed her but not ever "hovering" over us.
Great food! Highly recommend the salmon. Service was fast. Food served hot. Will definitely go again
Date night with my husband who’s also in the restaurant business in Medina. Everything was fantastic and we are so happy to support a local business! Highly recommend everything from apps to table-side bananas foster! Please come check them out!
Excellent food and atmosphere. Would highly recommend to anyone.
Exceptional Service, everyone went above and beyond and I never had to worry about an empty glass.
Wonderful experience, again!
The food was outstanding, and the server's were attentive. The menu had some limitations for those that are gluten free, but otherwise we had a fantastic dining experience!
