    I am a garlic snob so take this for what it is. The garlic used in my dish was either old or the “jar” variety. A bit disappointing but I LOVE what their mission is all about. The food was good. Will frequent them again, to make sure it was maybe a one time thing

    Excellent from start to finish!! Amazing service with such delicious food. The restaurant was very accommodating when we called a day before to increase our party to 5, even though it was a busy Saturday evening. Our server, Scott, was so courteous and professional as were everyone that we encountered. Drinks, apps, entrees and desserts were so yummy and everyone enjoyed them. I would have loved to meet the chef but, unfortunately, he did not come by our table. All in all a great evening out at a restaurant that I very highly recommend and look forward to returning to!

    We’ve been here a couple of times, and it has always been a great night. Food is absolutely delicious!! Best steak I’ve had too in Ohio. Service is immaculate!! Always consistent with the warm welcoming of the guests as well as the politeness of all the staff. Highly recommended!! Can’t wait to try the patio during the summer.

    Amazing, personable service from every member of the staff. The chef even came out to talk to us. Food was incredible. It's pricey, but it's great for special occasions. Also worth it to support the overall mission of the non-profit. We will definitely be back!

    We were provided a private candlelit corner table for our anniversary and given complimentary champagne, thank you! There were several specials & other yummy choices on the menu we wanted to try but we decided to keep it focused on selections chosen prior to arrival. Drinks: a Manhattan with markers mark for me & a glass of house Cabernet for my wife. The Manhattan was topped with a Luxardo cherry … wow … perfect! I will use those from now on at home! We shared a charcuterie board to start! A very large portion for two with an amazing assortment of gourmet cheeses and meats. It was customized to our palates based on several questions. Best assortment we have ever experienced, WELL DONE! Next were the Mussels and they did not disappoint! These shellfish were perfectly cooked in a delicious butter white wine sauce. We stuck with the restaurant’s French theme & tested the French Onion! Loved the preparation, the port was very light with allowed the onions & guyere cheese to reign! Delicious! We did not partake in an entree or desert since we were full & pressed for time for another event that evening. Our meal extended over a 2 hour period which was dictated by us without issue. Our waitress, Sherrie, was fun and extremely attentive making sure our evening was perfect! A bit expensive but the food was great. Looking forward to another meal in the near future!

    I'll be honest, French cuisine is not my thing... but that said there are plenty delicious options on the menu. The wait staff is attentive and patient. We never felt rushed. The head chef/owner made his rounds to check on all his patrons and inquire about the meals and overall dining experience and was very open to feedback. It was a very personable experience.

    We have been to enough restaurants to know they change up the menu on New Years Eve but to only have 8 entrees to choose from and none cheaper then $50 bucks a plate was disappointing. Be a while before I go back.

    We loved everything about our experience. Vic, our server, was most attentive, as was his trainee. Our meals were yummy. My Coquille St. Jacques had such beautifully blended flavors and was the perfect size for a light lunch. We had asked friends from Dayton, who were visiting the area to join us there and they were quite impressed. Though we ourselves live 30+ miles away, we will certainly be back. We came to support the mission of this institute. Now we want to return to enjoy some of the evening offerings.

    Upscale with Exceptional food. Many selections you don’t see anywhere else. We had the foie gras - delicious - our entrees were cassoulet, scallops, chicken, all very good. Dessert was creme brûlée and the lemon panacotta - both very good. Our waiter, Scott, was perfect. Very helpful yet making sure we had everything we needed. Excellent wine selection and the atmosphere is very warm and welcoming. Will definitely be back soon!

    Loved everything about Serenite. Food was excellent--fresh and well made. Service was great--good attention to detail and made us feel like VIP. I don't know why anyone would eat at a chain over eating here. It is fine dining at fast food prices. Extraordinary experience all the way around!
