Diner Reviews
  • "at w/8 customers&my boss.service was terrible.Our waiter was more concerned with upselling us,then he was non-existent.constantly asked boys for water.they would acknowledge,then never return.at least they came by the table,unlike our waiter.If it wasn't for a different waiter who we imposed on to get us water, we all would have choked w/out liquid.He should have rec'd our tip.he was tall with dark/straight hari.When our waiter brough some of our food, he asked "who ordered" the x, y, and z.waitering 101 you know who ordered what! He took our orders in an orderly fashion,so it should be be on his pad who ordered what. then 8 our of 10 meals arrived&the other 2 guests sat there for quite some time with no food. they really failed on service."

  • "I come here often for lunch with coworkers. This experience was not particularly great. The hostess was checked out and our wait staff were not interested. I ordered a gluten-free pasta dish which was just OK. I was a bit disappointed by the lackluster experience."

  • "Very overpriced. We didn't receive half of the brunch prix fixe and portions are incredibly small. So small, in fact, that one of my guests questioned whether they were eating the "salad" or a garnish. While dining, we watched two separate diners walk around trying to find their server to track down their check. If you're looking to kill an afternoon while spending $5 a bite, this is the place."

  • "Been to other serafina -- this location service SLOW!! the 2 men hosts terrible DON'T sit outside service even worse. Been there 2x now and same experience both times, the location on 49th and 79th better and food for some reason BETTER"

  • "2 of us had the walnut and pear salad with chicken added and the chicken was very chewy and there were very little greens on the salad. In fairness, the 3rd person had the shrimp salad which was very good. Matre'd told the 3rd person in our group that we hadn't arrived and she sat waiting until she finally called us on our cell and we were seated and had 'checked' in when we arrived. None of the choices on #2 were applicable so I just picked one. "

  • "The food was good but the atmosphere was not appealing at all, cheesy decor and terrible music playing at a volume that was a little too loud. The service was terrible, with unfriendly wait staff and I actually had a male staff member runnin front of me to go to the bathroom, the women's bathroom. The food is overpriced even if it was good, good not great, $27 for a salad? Hmmm no, will not be returning."

  • "After having just arrived in NYC, Serafina was the perfect place for the children to be introduced into a typical - yet no so typical - Italian restaurant. Pizza was good, carpaccios fantastic, artichoke salad OK (don't like artichokes to be refrigerator cold) and gnocchi extremely good."

  • "Serafina Broadway lures both locals and tourists throught its friendly doors. We're in the latter category, and were treated to a delightful indoor location next to the outdoor passage. Seating is cozy, but there is no difficulty in chatting with your companion(s). The smells from all the plates emerging from the kitchen drove me crazy--it was all so good! What should we order? My companion and I eat lightly, so between us we chose one salad, and veal and pasta selections. The smell of the sauce on the gnocchi drove me crazy. It tasted even better than it smelled. The veal (milanese/schnitzel) was lightly breaded and so yummy. The servers work together as a tight team, so we never had to wait for anything."

  • "Have been many times and the food is consistently good. Menu has lots to choose from... Great salads, delicious pizzas, and many intetesting entrees. All have unique ingredient combos and loaded with flavor. Service is quick and attentive. Only minor complaint is the front area is packed in with tables. Ask for back tables or outdoor seating when weather is good."

  • "We went for lunch on a Sunday and enjoyed the food. Waiter was relatively inatttentive and said no to most requests. Busboy had difficulty with language and understanding our few requests. When we asked for a second bakery basket, which came with our two brunches, we were told (around 1:30) that they had no more. ."

  • "Stopping in here before a show at NY City Center, we were pleased with the appealing look and small, but tasty price-fixed style brunch menu."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "The food was barely mediocre. We asked for a salad with grilled chicken and got cold dry sliced chicken. We were told that if we wanted fresh chicken it would cost $25 as opposed to the $20 we had just spent. The food was terribly overpriced for its quality. A 5oz diet soda was $4.75 and a cup of tea was $4. We are New Yorkers and used to higher priced food, but we are also used to fine tasting food. We will not be returning. N"

  • "Met a friend for lunch and had an overall good experience. We did pasta and salads and were very pleased with what we both ordered. I'll have to go back and see how their pizzas taste. They even give you a couple complementary cookies at the end of your meal. It was nice to find a fairly quiet restaurant to have lunch close to work."

  • "Caesar salad-bad-$12 for pre-chopped, bagged, 2 day old, tiny salad made angry- asked to have light on dressing, came with none. Brought side of dressing- good- service too. No bread served-lame!. Overall disappointed."

  • "This is my first time back to Serafina Broadway since 2008 and they have remained consistent with their service and quality food. Staff was very friendly and attentive and did not rush us out... especially since the restaurant was full and buzzing with people waiting to be seated....."

  • "Tucked away under and behind scaffolding on the southwest corner of Broadway and W55th St is this nice, pleasant, Italian restaurant with wonderful food presented in a way one would not expect from a chain by caring staff. We came here when one of our favorites was booked and we will return again and again. Maybe it's good that the scaffolding is up and hiding this gem."

  • "We have eaten at the Serafinas in the meat market district in the past. This location was convenient to Jazz at Lincoln Center. The staff was courteous and attentive. Our food was delicious and served hot. Our only complaint, the cocktail prices are high. Overall,though, a very good meal and pleasant ambience."
