Food always amazing. Had sweat breads most recently and they were perfect as was the halibut. Sommelier also quite knowledgable.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday celebrationThere were five of us there for a birthday celebration and we had a great time. The tables are a good size for conversation. The food has always been yummy at Serafina.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful neighborhood restaurantSerafina has a wonderful neighborhood feeling and serving delicious plates with quality ingredients. They do have parking in nearby lots available, so that makes this a great choice for dining out. We went on a Wednesday and it was full. Reservations recommended.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMSerafinaI've had dinner at Serafina several times and have never been disappointed. For an appetizer, three of us shared the mussels which were served with a delicious smokey tomato broth. We had a very nice Tuscan red as well as the scallops and the bucatini. Everything was delicious and well-presented. The noise level is little high but didn't detract from our dinner. I was happy to hear that they serve several type of Italian Grappa. Alas, we didn't try any this trip. The wait staff seemed very knowledgeable about wines.
Thanks Serafina.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMCouldn't have been betterHadn't been for 15 years, and it was fantastic all the way around. Wil not wait so long next time.

Went for Restaurant Week but totally deviated from the plan, no regrets.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWe couldn't have asked forWe couldn't have asked for a better dining experience. My fiancee and I both had the filet, we were turned on to an AMAZING pinot noir by the sommelier and dessert was fabulous. I love the energy of Serafina. Makes me feel like a little bit of Italy lives within Seattle. Cannot wait to visit again!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMMore than just a Neighborhood GemWe enjoy dining at Serafina and have yet to be truly disappointed. The food is rarely anything but outstanding, as is the service. The noise level in most restaurants is determined by not only their accoustics but also how many people are dining. Since we had an early lunch, Serafina was quiet. Whether a full house or just a few diners, we are still able to carry on a comfortable conversation without having to yell, a big plus on our list.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderfulWe went to Serafina for Restaurant Week, the food was amazing, the wine selection was vast and the wait staff was on top of it and knowledgeable. I would definitely go back.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThat was an amazingly delightfulThat was an amazingly delightful experience....just could not have been better....amazing food, beyond attentive (but never intrusive) service...even live jazz.
Total tab (including tax and a tip of about 25%)for the night...a round of drinks, two glasses of wine, a shared salad (butter lettuce topped with Pancetta), two appetizers, two entrees, two desserts...about $200.
We were FOOLS for staying away as long as we did. Will not repeat that mistake....
ALL IN FOR SERAFINA!!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for a festive evening !First time and we took our adult kids for a nice occasion and had a blast. Prices for this nice of a restaurant were right in line. Fabulous old fashioneds. And great food !!! We will back.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThis has been one of my favoriteThis has been one of my favorite restaurants -have been there several times. Food is always good but once again I'm noticing that portion sizes have changed -much smaller than they used to be (4 tiny scallops on top of pieces of cauliflower and sauce for $26). And no bread was offered. We were looking forward to their bread because it was always really good -crusty, dark olive bread served with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Didn't see it on the menu either. We looked around and none of the other tables had any either. Is this to help with our obese society or just a cost cutting effort?? Service was excellent as usual though.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMSerafina is an outstandingSerafina is an outstanding restaurant. I've been there numerous times (12-15?) in the past several years and have never been disappointed. Knowledgeable service, strong wine list, interesting food, excellent value, and a pleasant, relaxed ambiance. (While I don't know that it's particularly "kid-friendly," I've been there with young children and they seem perfectly welcome.) "Sera fina" means "fine evening" in Italian, and Serafina lives up to its name.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ambiance, good food,Great ambiance, good food, and enjoyable live music.
