    The food was mediocre, at best. The service was slow, and our server was inattentive. Going to the bathroom was also a real challenge. You have two single bathrooms, and there was almost always line. Also, we felt it was a bit pricey for the quality. A small bottle of Coke was $5.00! We won't be going back.

    Wait staff have a horrible attitude, menus were dirty, cutlery was dirty, and we waited 10 mins for someone to stop by our table. To top it off it wasn’t even packed and it was Mothers Day, so I left before the entire day was ruined. This is my second time at this location and the first time wasn’t top tier either. I will not visit this location ever again.

    Not at all what we expected based on the web site. Thought we were going to experience a special Mothers Day breakfast in Manhattan. The menu on line was not true. The toast was bread that was days old - terrible. Would have had a better experience at McDonald’s. Also, there was nothing Italian - including middle eastern staff. Would never go back..

    Although the greeter was a little sour, the rest of the staff was unbelievably friendly and helpful. The food was delicious. Quit unexpected for a restaurant in the Times Square area. Will definitely go back. So close to Carnegie Hall and City Center

    My wife and I checked in for our late afternoon reservation. The waitress showed us to a table located up against a bench style seating area. The bench style seats were torn and patched up. I asked her if we could be seated at another table, however she showed us to two others beside the first table which were torn up as well. She finally selected a regular table for us. Unfortunately, from thereon the servers were unfriendly. Even when I asked for a water refill the server ignored our request. I paid in cash and left a generous tip, however, I would never visit nor recommend Serafina Restaurant to anyone. This restaurant can learn what excellent food and service is from a nearby competitor such as The Smith Restaurant.

    They accepted 10:30pm reservations. But rushed us to order upon being seated, then rushed food service. After our last bite at 11:15, we were told restaurant was closed and we needed to leave. Not the Serafina I remember from years ago. It was also dirty and food was barely warm.

    Fantastic experience across the board. Was greeted by a friendly hostess (wish I had gotten her name) who was super accommodating with our table selection. The waitstaff was fabulous - attentive, efficient and friendly. Special thank you to Chris for the awesome service throughout our meal. The food, drinks and desserts were delicious. We had the salmon eggs benedict (with a side of potatoes and salad), bloody Marys, aperol spritz, an omelette, fries for the table and the cheesecake and vanilla ice cream topped with espresso. (There were 4 people in our party). Highly recommend! The location is super convenient to a lot of "touristy" spots in NYC. My mom and I headed over to The Great Gatsby after brunch which was a convenient 2 blocks away!

    We sat outside so there was some street noise, but it still felt relatively private which was nice. We also had a heating lamp which came in handy once it started getting windy. The food was great, but the menu didn’t note that the salad came with bread, and my friend has celiac, so we had to send it back for a new one. I got the Cacio e Pepe which was delicious. At the end of the meal we were given the wrong check somehow??? Luckily we were paying attention but we were given an $80 bill for another table when all we ordered was a salad and a bowl of pasta. They remedied it pretty quick, but I’ve never been given a wrong bill at a restaurant before.

    The food is pretty consistent and good … not amazing. The staff is cheerful and helpful. You get served quickly which is great for pre-theater. The salads for some reason get over salted which is a shame. Nothing else was problematic. Prices are higher like everywhere else which makes the place not such a bargain anymore, but for a pre-theater meal in a festive atmosphere (as long as your expectations are moderate) I would recommend this place.

    Wir hatten das Serafina durch Zufall gesehen und dort einen Tisch reserviert. Wir bekamen einen guten Tisch am Rand des Raumes. Das war gut so, da die Geräuschkulisse doch extrem war. Das Essen (Vorspeise und die Pizze) waren gut und haben lecker geschmeckt. Wir waren später auch noch 2x im Serafina im The Time Hotel, wo wir besser gesessen haben und die Portionen besser schmeckten und auch noch größer waren.

    The service was excellent - efficient, timely, quiet, friendly; the Kale Salad was delicious & the dressing not only very good but also not overbearing by having too much dressing; we ordered the Branzino & the Sea Bass - both dishes were absolutely excellent - prepared so wonderfully, the sauce on the Branzino was the best sauce ever! The vegetables were prepared very nicely - certainly not overcooked. Presentation - excellent. We enjoyed our dinner very very much.

    This was such a disapointment. My daughter and I piclked this place because we have heard great things about Serfina unfortuatly this location wsa horrible and thats being kind. I asked about thier famous Lasagna and was told it may not be ready. I had to ask him to go and check to see if it is ready. It was so I ordered it. What a mistake!! It was not fresh at all that must have been frozen then heated up. The chop meat was falling apart and was unseasoned.

    Excellent food. Excellent service. Just the right blend of busy atmosphere but also intimate enough to enjoy (and hear) conversation with people at your table. From appetizers to desserts, each dish is flavorful. We find dinner service at a nicer pace than lunch service (but understandably so because most only have an hour for a business lunch). We love eating at Serafina.

    The Bolognese pasta and the Cacio Pepe were very tasty. The salmon entree was also enjoyable. The carpaccio appetizer I felt had no taste. It did not taste like truffle oil was on the meat, it tasted like no flavor oil with a few truffles placed on top. That is VERY different than truffle oil. So overall that appy was tasteless and expensive at $29. The wait service was fair. I could not understand/hear our waiter, he seemed like he needed more training and did not tell us there would be a charge for bread, when he asked if we wanted bread for the table. He also did not tell me I’d be charged for a “refill” of my iced tea. Would not have ordered another tea if I knew I’d be charged.

    Been to Serafina before but not this location. Appetizers were fantastic and food was good save for the chicken parm, which was a bit overcooked. Portions were generous. A couple of times our server took a bit of time it seemed to come back to us for more drinks and to see how our meal was, which seemed to be a by-product of how busy they got. That aside all staff were very pleasant and accommodating.

    We came for a girls night. Dinner and a Broadway show. The food was amazing. My friends had never been and they loved it. For me Serafina never disappoints. I always feel confident suggesting Serafina’s for dinner. My friend has celiacs disease and she said her gluten free pasta was the best she ever had!!
