Diner Reviews
  • "This dinner was a terrible experience. Service was as bad as it could get. Very disorganized wait staff, inattentive, and unprofessional. Food only mediocre. Very long wait for each course to come out."

  • "Decent dinner, good service, reasonable prices except for the price of a glass of wine, which is too high for this restaurant."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "Asked for a glass of "house cabernet".....Got charged $16....Now that's a rip-off ! This is not a high class place in any respect except that stupid glass of wine.....insulting to the clientele"

  • "Like many restaurants in the area this one was has some early season service issues which will improve over time. The food was another story. We ordered two specials- a pasta dish and chicken parmigiana. We were not told the prices of the specials and made the mistake not to ask. In an apparent effort to justify a hefty $30 price tag for chicken parmigiana, the chicken was the size of a pizza. In addtion to serving a portion that was far too large even for a diner with a large appetite, some salad was placed not on the side, but directly on top of the chicken and melted cheese. All in all, not very appetizing. And, in terms of flavor, no better than your average pizza parlor."

  • "Tasty food, uneven service, plenty of covered outdoor seating and not pricy at all. That said, if you have anything to chat with your dinner partners about, make sure you're not sitting next to one of the large groups there. The big parties make it deafening! Otherwise, pretty pretty good. "
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "The food here is always delicious. The homemade ravioli in a butter sage sauce was outstanding, and the basil strawberry martinis were refreshing and delicious. The ricotta cheesecake was perfect, with just a hint of sweetness to end the meal."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Eat here all the time. Very rushed in and out within 1 hour. Very noisy and up appealing. This is off our summer dining places"
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "it's the beginning of the "season" in East Hampton and no one has their act together yet. We are way too old to go out on weekends, but Serafina is still good - especially if you goearly."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • " Serafina is an upscale Italian restaurant with a warm Hamptons vibe. Kids might sometimes roam between the tables as their parents dine but it's all well behaved informal fun. The staff is young, friendly, and usually knowledgeable about the food. It is not cheap for anywhere else, but it is reasonable for the Hamptons. The food is good and the portions fair. "

  • "I have been to Serafina on many occasions, including one new year's eve, but sadly do not plan to dine there again. The hostess was amateurish and didn't acknowledge we had a reservation when I told her we did and gave her my name. The waiter was worse. We asked for butter on 3 occasions and if sitting there I'd still be waiting for it. We sat next to a large group that allowed the children in the party to run about without a word from the restaurant staff. Our entrees took an inordinately long time to be delivered and when they arrived they were barely warm. Is this a problem with the kitchen, the wait staff, or both. This restaurant has lost a formerly loyal customer. Given the service we encountered they probably don't care."

  • "Serafina was ok...there was no bread on the table which is very odd. Fried Calamari was a little chewy. My salmon itself was good but didn't like the lentils and spinach combination it came with. My husband said his veal was good. The pizza for the kids looked a little sad. Overall this restaurant is not up to par with restaurants in East Hampton."
    Dined on 9/7/2013
  • "It's nice to have Serafina in our neighborhood. It's become our "go to" place with friends and family and we know we'll always have great food and great service."
    Dined on 9/6/2013
  • "Surprisingly very good food and much better than its NYC sisters. View of main drag, which seems like the other side of the East Hampton tracks, but very good salads, pastas and focaccia. Great for the kids."
    Dined on 8/19/2013
  • "This is a great place to take kids if you get there early. Food is good, service is very good, but prices are typical East Hampton which means expensive."
    Dined on 8/14/2013
  • "Really delicious food. Waiter was very attentive but the restaurant is still plagued with sluggishness. I always forget until I'm there again. Somehow, I'm always being apologized to for how late my entree is. Fortunately it's delicious so I forget and return repeatedly. The thin crust pizza is excellent and my kids love the mini tennis racquet pasta drowned in salty butter (hell, so do I. Who wouldn't?). It's too bad the kitchen is either so overwhelmed or indifferent that there's inevitably a 40 minute wait between courses - I give the waiter points for at least apologizing to us for the delay.."
    Dined on 7/28/2013
  • "This was our 2nd visit to the East Hampton location and we will be back! Food and service were both very good. We had a pizza , very good salads , various pasta entrees and dessert. The fruit tart is perfect!! The chocolate souffle was very good. We will skip the espresso with vanilla ice cream next time. We were able to make a reservation one night and walked in without one another night. The staff / servers were nice and professional. Great prices for the Hamptons."
    Dined on 7/25/2013
  • "My family of five always enjoy our dining experiences at Serafina locations in New York City and East Hampton. The food arrives hot and consistently satisfies the variety of tastes around the table. The service was attentive and timely. Everyone enjoyed their courses and the highlight was the freshly made tiramisu dessert for two that was sampled by all. Well done"
    Dined on 7/25/2013
  • "Food was mediocre and way overpriced. Spaghetti with tasteless bolognese sauce was $19. Service was just OK and ambience was absent. Location and simple menu draws families with kids. Makes it an easy in and out. Definitely will not return."
    Dined on 7/22/2013
  • "Not sure If Sunday is a slow night but we sat right down and the food was really good! Not too expensive (minus the drinks of course) ; would definately go back!"
    Dined on 7/14/2013
  • "Ok, so it was Tuesday perhaps the main staff had the night off. It took 45 minutes to get our first course. It tool 25 minutes to get a round of drinks including a glass of flat champagne - which they tried to charge us for the entire bottle. The bartender couldn't make a basic cocktail either. After every course we had to ask for the table to be cleared etc. Diners around us were also complaining about the service. Sad thing is, many of us had been to Serfina in East Hampton before and had enjoyed it."
    Dined on 7/9/2013
  • "We've been to the East Hampton Sarafina many times but his was the first time this season. In the past, we've always had an enjoyable time, both in terms of food and service. This time around, it was a disaster. The service was atrocious from the drink orders taking 15 minutes, to the waiter getting every single thing wrong including giving us the wrong dessert and someone else's check. To top it off, there was no apology. As for the food, it was mediocre at best and has certainly gone downhill from a few months ago. This place needs to get its act together soon. We are hoping they were having an off night."
    Dined on 7/9/2013
  • "Food is ok, for what it is... Not the best, but a decent step above fast food options in the area, so I would have to say it is a decent addition to the restaurant pool. This is our second time there and pretty consistent all around with our last visit earlier this season. Sam's for pizza, Serafina for pasta, but definitely go someplace else for a memorable dinner. By the way, the indoor space was so uncomfortably warm that we really didn't even feel like eating. It is unfortunate that they don't have that aspect of the experience down--last time, we nearly froze to death outside and they came around with gross blankets for diners to use--yuk!"
    Dined on 7/6/2013
  • "I was pleasantly surprised at the level of service afforded us last night at Serafina. The staff was attentive and the food delicious. My special request though not on the menu, was served with a smile as if it was not a problem !"
    Dined on 7/5/2013
  • "Meal would have been fine if not for the horrible service. This place is by no means a gourmet food destination. That is OK. I knew that going in. However that is no excuse when charging the prices they do."
    Dined on 7/2/2013
  • "I like Serafina's; been to several of them. East Hampton needs better management and more servers. I've been there twice in the last two weeks. No bartender on duty - he was also waiting tables, so we just sat and waited at the bar for 10 minutes, then the hostess got a waiter to go behind the bar, but he didn't know how do make drinks, and he asked if we wanted a glass of wine. Then, after awhile, the bartender made us both a drink while we waited for our other two friends. When we were seated, we waited for drinks again. Then we found out that they only had two servers for the entire restaurant, which was 2/3 full... so we waited some more. The food is good, but the wait is dreadful."
    Dined on 6/16/2013
  • "My friend and I were looking for a lovely restaurant for our Saturday night away. Sadly this was not the place. The decor is okay I suppose but it's no neighborhood gem. The waiter seemed distracted, rattled off the menu and just seemed to be churning us through. Our food was decidedly average. Overcooked, over seasoned tuna, tasteless watery overlooked vegetables accompanied by cheap-tasting white wine that they said was Sancerre but which didn't taste like it. We couldn't wait to leave. If only we'd stayed at East Hampton Grill over the road where we'd gone for a drink beforehand. Or gone to Nick and Toni's where we went afterwards. Both were stylish, friendly and with great service. I'd advice going to either of those instead."

  • "I am a frequent patroon of this restaurant. The food is, atmosphere and service is normally very good. This past weekend was an exception. A party of 20 were so noisy we were unable to hear any conversation at out own table. When I spoke to the owner/manager he was arrogant and unsympathetic. His comment to us was "what do you want me to do? They are paying customers". I guess the smaller parties were less important to him (we were 5). There was no attempt to make up for the noise level, compensation us in any way (drink, coffee, desert...NOTHING). I will not be going back to Serafina, there are a lot of great restaurants in the area."
    Dined on 6/8/2013
  • "Very noisy--almost chaotic. Tables close together, crowded. Difficult to hear one another and have a conversation. True it was Memorial Day weekend and bad weather, bringing everyone inside. Was there last summer and outside dining was pleasant."
    Dined on 5/25/2013
  • "The place was very busy and very crowded yet the service was great and the food was yummy. Everything from the mozzarella and prosciutto to the Rigitoni Boulonnaise."
    Dined on 5/24/2013
  • "We have been to this restaurant many time and this is the first time we had a bad experience. The food was as good as it has always been but the service was the worst I have experienced at any restaurant. We had an 8pm reservation and at 8:15 we were told that it would be a half an hour and that there was nothing they would do about it. The attitude was terrible. Another party who had a 7:30 reservation went ballistic at 8:30 and stormed out of the place. I hope this was a situation that they will fix and that it will not happen again. We have liked this place in the past and will probably give them one more chance, but that is all."

  • "The food was great...much better than expected. The staff, however, seemed distracted and lethargic. They performed their duties adequately, but could have displayed more energy and interest toward the customer. It was a very slow Monday night, so I would probably give them another try (but regardless of the day of week or level of business, it should not matter)."
