    What a wonderful evening we had! To start off the experience we were given complimentary champagne to toast our anniversary! The food was excellent, staff was professional, responsive and polite and the drinks were superb. They even made the delicious Banana Foster right at our table - Will definitely be back again!

    Excellent place, entree ribeye was awesome. Caesar and Caprise salads good but not spectacular, Caesar most definitely needed kick. A salad at this level establishment needs to be special. Love the location, interior and most definitely restaurants concept and theory. Love 2nd chances!!

    Honestly the foot was just average and there didn't seem to be much attempt for an "authentic" French experience in terms of service or cuisine. Way overpriced for the quality of food

    Our Supper Club met here for dinner. All I can say is perfection all around. The food is spectacular and service top notch! Vic was wonderful to us the whole evening. The manager, sommelier, and Chef all visited our table and had genuine conversations with us. The mission of this restaurant is so amazing, which is icing on the cake. You should make the drive, it’s so worth it.

    Our first visit to Serenite, celebrating our 51st anniversary. An excellent experience from beginning to end. We arrived for our reservation at 5PM. It was quiet at that time, which was nice. As more people arrived later, it became a little more noisy, as expected, but never enough to disturb our conversation. Dennis was our outstanding server, knowledgeable, courteous, and extremely personable. We had the flat iron steak and salmon dinners. Incredible! Everyone we encountered during our dining experience was exceptional, from Rick who met us at the entrance and served us complimentary champagne to our expert Bananas Foster table side chef (I wish I remembered his name). We both agree that this was one of the best dining experiences in our 50+ years together. And there have been many! Thank you for being an incredible blessing to the community as a whole as well as the lovely people you are educating. We will absolutely return and share our experience and your story with our family and friends. Paul and Nancy Harvan

    Food was unique and delicious! Good sized portions! Staff was very attentive and friendly! We also love the premise behind the founding of the restaurant - what a wonderful way to provide hope and a second chance for those who need it! Prices were a bit at the high end for some entrees which might be a bit costly for some diners. However, they were definitely in line for an award-winning restaurant! Will definitely return!

    We were in town and staying nearby. It was also our anniversary which the staff acknowledged. All the recommendations were spot on and just the right amount of attentiveness. My steak was prepared as requested and very tender. My wife had the special pistachio fish. We finished t off with crème brule. Everything was great. It was actually the next day speaking with some other guests at the hotel, we learned more of the background and intent of the restaurant in providing training for those with addiction - truly a worthy cause and we were glad we were able to contribute to this mission. Worth the visit if just for the food and service, but blessing for the soul of others.

    We had a wonderful experience. The vegan gnocchi was fantastic as were the artichokes! My companion had a strip steak with Diane sauce that he raved about, with lyonnaise potatoes and mushroom risotto. The food was excellent and the service was great! We will definitely find reasons to go back.

    Setenite has won awards for its French cooking, so I can't figure out why they haven't been busy lately (per the staff). They are non-profit and support those in rehab. A very interesting and admirable mission. As with French cooking, the sauces were a highlight. My companion had the pasta du jour, which was flank steak over fettuccine in a pepper sauce. He rated it a 10 out of 10. I had the trout almondine over Yukon gold mashed potatoes and green beans. It came in a lemon sauce (I think). I had asked if I could substitute the mashed potatoes with lyannaise potatoes and something other than the beans and they said no, but that I could order sides of the lithe items if i wanted. I thought that was odd until I got my meal and realized that making the changes I had requested, with the sauce that came with the dish, would have rendered the dish a disaster. So I'm glad I followed the menu. Cary, the manager, was very personable. Mark, our server, is a student there. All were very attentive. The chef, Todd (?), even came out and talked with each table. It's pricey but the quality of the ingredients and meat make the prices justifiable. Is rather pay $10 more a plate and get a quality, well made dinner. I will be back. Maybe I'll try lunch next time. Whenever I go, I'll get the spicy Margherita. It was delicious and not the kind you're used to from a Mexican restaurant. Would love another one right now!

    We had a really pleasant meal tonight. Our first experience at Serenity. Sitting outside on the street side was a bit noisy from traffic. The Sun was hitting those sitting by the rail directly from about 6:30-8pm. Sunset ski is nice there however. Food was excellent, trout, steak, duck, snapper all served precisely together. Very friendly and attentive service. Well be back!

    I love the Mac and cheese with a side added steak, like you do with a salad. I have ordered it twice and was told, not again. I am not sure why that can't happen; I will gladly pay for the Mac-$8 and the steak $12 as noted under the listed salads. I first discovered this dish at JW steak house-a Marriott restaurant. My friend ordered it with me and also loved it. I do hope I can return and order it again! My husband and I have been faithful guests at the restaurant many times. I also have brought my "lady friends" with me for lunches. Thank you, Madalyn Bauer
