We visited this very small restaurant during a hot day in July, and quickly realized that there was no AC. After sweltering at hot table for a few minutes, we decided to leave and go to Madison Crossing across the street that had AC.

When we arrived, there was a large, noisy table of people. But even when they cleared out, the place was not as serene as its title. Our waitress loudly berated the cook, repeatedly, which kind of ruined the ambience. We had the calamari appetizer and the pesto pasta. Both were delicious, and prices were reasonable. Due to the lack of... More

if you look at all the reviews, either people love this place and hate it. I do not know if i picked the wrong night to go or what. The food at Arbys was a better value in my opinion. I like what i saw on the menu and it is a cute place. We ordered two meals that came... More

Wow! What a gem we found. Probably one of the best sandwiches I've had in awhile. Wife's salad was also very good. Plus, both kids cleaned their plates and were excited about the food. Portions were very generous. I had a turkey sandwich that had moist and tasty turkey on it. None of this thin sliced meat. It was big... More

I had the Thai chicken and my husband had the Bison ravioli, beer and wine only. Staff was attentive and the restaurant is small but comfortable

Serenity with both its present owner and its founder was an oasis in a town better known for blue plate specials and pub food. It offered a limited menu that was carefully selected and artfully produced. This year I came here twice -- the return trip was because I believed my first experience was an aberration. I ordered fish that... More

This restaurant was recommended by the staff at the hotel. Make reservations if you plan on going. I wish we could have stayed another night just so we could eat dinner here again. The pasta I ordered was very good, the pasta cooked perfect, and there was plenty of the pesto sauce on it. My husband ordered some curry chicken... More

This little gem of a restaurant was recommended by the owners of our hotel, we read other reviews and were surprised by them. We had dinner at 7:00 on Father’s Day. When we were seated, water was placed on the table. The server, very friendly, came by and took our drink order. I think they only serve beer, wine and... More

We dined at "Serenity Bistro" two evenings during our stay in West Yosemite, as it is one of the few 'fine dining' options in West Yosemite. While we would rate the cuisine as "good" on both occasions, the service was the worst we've ever experienced for fine dining. It took 'multiple' requests to secure anything - water, a cocktail, coffee,... More

Do not waste your time, money, or energy with this restaurant. Service is slow and the food is overpriced. But worst of all the quality is very poor. I will start off saying that my pan seared chicken dish was mediocre at best. However, my wife's dish, which was supposed to be butternut squash ravioli, was horrible. The pasta was... More
