Serrano & Tin Angel reviews from OpenTable diners

    Got reservations in order to see Valerie June. Went with open expectations and came away surprised. The service was fast and prompt. ordered Crispy Goat Cheese with Candied Fennel, Jalapeño Hummus w/ Marinated Grilled Flatbread, and Corn Fritters Cayenne Honey Drizzle. The corn fritters were absolutely delicious. The goat cheese was (disappointingly) one ball, but very tasty. the Hummus also was excellent. We ordered the "Famous Meatloaf". I wouldn't call it famous, but it was very good. Overall, Serrano is a definite recommendation and in store for a return visit.

    My wife & I shared the 6 appetizers special and they were delicious, well presented and varied in taste and texture. Highly recommended. I think they would have gone better with wine than with beer, however; our bad, not the restaurant's. Then to go upstairs to see a great live show at the Tin Angel was the best dessert.

  • They've changed their menu
    JanHVIP
    Dined on 7/26/2013
    They've changed their menu since the last time I have been there, and the portions seemed smaller. Food was still very good and seasonally appropriate. The night we ate there (a Friday), it appeared they had only one server for the entire restaurant. He did as well as he could, but we had to wait a bit between courses, and for our bill/processing payment. Their by the glass wine list is still too new world based for me; I prefer old world style wines. Still, very good food, and can't beat the seats you get at the shows upstairs if you eat at Serrano beforehand.

    tm1949VIP
    Dined on 6/14/2013
    The menu is interesting in this charming spot in Old City, but the taste doesn't quite measure up. All is good, and some very good, but the expectation was for much better. But then the music venue upstairs is great, reasonably priced with good music. It's good to be in a place where being over 30 years old is not a crime..

  • Dreadful Meal, Dreadful Service
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 5/1/2013
    We decided to try here as the menu looked interesting. I checked online reviews which were mixed but decided to try it anyway We arrived and were seated right next to a couple who didn't seem to mind their personal space being invaded. Drink were ordered and promptly served. However, starters took over half an hour to arrive and were just lukewarm, despite the restaurant being not being at all busy. Main courses also lukewarm when they eventually arrived. I know we should have complained at the time but we are British and really don't like to make a fuss - But more to the point, we only saw our server when he took the order and delivered our food - Had we been asked how our meals were,we would have let the server know we were not satisfied.

    we had the perch was was delicious and a very nice portion. Also the curry mussels were great.And the brulee as well. A pleasant surprise! Put that together with an efficient and nice server, a quiet but energetic atmosphere, lovely in its old charm, and a great seat reserved later for the Tin Angel, and you've got yourself a perfect evening.

    We travel from Baltimore to see Smash Palace when they play at the Tin Angel and dinner at Serrano's is the regular pre-show treat. Got our regular favorite seat by the fireplace. The 20 S. Steak Frites are the BEST! Last visit I had spare ribs which were on special and they were also excellent. The service is very friendly and attentive. The chef also came out and made sure we were happy with our meal. She also informed us of upcoming changes to the menu as well as her flexibility in making something that is no longer on the menu (call ahead for that so she can plan). The shows upstairs are fantastic esp because if you make a dinner reservation prior to the show, you get a reserved table upstairs. The staff upstairs are also great!

    After an outstanding dinner at Seranno, we attended the fabulous concert (reserved seats were available at the Tin Angel venue for Serrano diners). There was a great opening act "She Hates Me" and featured presentation "The Philadelphia Ukelele Orchestra" -- an amazingly talented 12 person ensemble of vocalists and master instrumentalists playing ukeleles/a theramin and other "specialty" instruments. GREAT EVENING!!!!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 2/14/2013
    This place was packed on Valentines Day, either due to the holiday or the Hoots and Hellmouth concert happening upstairs, or both. We had a reservation and at first we were sat at a tiny table right next to the front door, that was kept open by smokers going in and out from the concert. When we asked to be moved they put us at a much larger table in the back without any issue. The place was loud and service was a little slow, but they seemed slammed. Otherwise, each dish was fantastic and the server recommended a great bottle of wine.

  • Serrano keeps getting better
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008VIP
    Dined on 12/2/2012
    Serrano keeps getting better and better. There's a real focus coming from the kitchen, with some daring additions to the menu featuring fresh seafood. Other listening rooms and entertainment clubs force you into a "two item minimum" to get good seating, and the food's generally "concession-level" quality. Not so at Serrano. Lately, we look forward to a nice dinner at Serrano just as much as the show to follow at Tin Angel.

    Serrano: The host was accommodating. Our waiter Michael was very professional. We ordered several appetizers: the corn fritters were just okay, the jalapeno hummus was wonderful, the crispy goat cheese was memorable (in a good way). I really loved the calamari. My beau had the burger with lamb chili, a good idea though the flavors were mudded and confused when combined. If one where to go through all that trouble on a burger, then make the flavors work together. The fries we lousy! The ambiance wasn't impressive. Oh, and the butterscotch cake was also lousy, dry and didn't taste like butterscotch. I would not recommend this restaurant minus the music venue. Tin Angel: Reserved seating is a treat. Emily King is a talented delight!
