We have had the pleasure to dine here multiple times and always consider this our favorite local restaurant. Dimytri is an absolute gem, who knows how to run this restaurant with specialized service, incredible food and a staff that is engaging and knowledgeable. Angel, our waiter/bartender did an outstanding job. We had the salmon and the smoked Pork shoulder which were both incredible. Don’t miss the eggplant! I can’t speak enough to the level of service, as the team makes you feel welcomed every time and the conversations are real and genuine. We love SER and would highly recommend to everyone when in Ballston. Buen provecho!
Our Mothers Day experience at SER was great. The food was fantastic. Friendly and attentive staff as well.
SER is one of my favorite restaurants in the DC area. Every single thing on this menu is amazing - from drinks to small plates to mains to dessert. The staff is very friendly and appreciative of its patrons. Safety precautions for COVID were great (sanitizing, masks, gloves, distancing, etc.). Whether your party is big or small, you couldn't make a better choice for your dining excursion.
Good service- waitress and staff were masked and tables were spaced nicely. These safety precautions made us feel as though they care about other important aspects of their business, employees, customers and quality of food. We enjoyed all of our choices. We ordered from the menu and shared as a table. Cheese plate, charcuterie, patatas bravas, garlic shrimp, octopus, croquetas, squid with habanero aioli, lamb and bread. Drinks- red wine and sangria and we were all happy. We ate outside and will return in warmer weather. Friendly and professional.
The food and wine was amazing! Love sharing small plates and cheese and meat platters with a friend. Due to the weather, we purposefully made a reservation indoors. When we arrived at our reservation time, however, they told us that due to the weather, they were putting original outdoor reservations inside. We ended up waiting 30 minutes past our reservation time to be seated which was a bit disappointing! I still love the food and would return, but would have appreciated a courtesy text that delays might occur if we had needed to change up our plans. All in all, food/drinks are great, service and reservation management could use some enhancement.
Went with my kids and grand kids. Something for everyone. We had the suckling pig which was expensive but really very good. Overall a very good experience though a little pricey. Would do it again thiugh
Love the food and service. Came back for Mother’s Day dinner.
What a wonderful way to celebrate a birthday! The lunch was delicious and the management went out of the way to offer best wishes to the birthday celebrant. Very nice.
As always, food and service were excellent at SER. I love going there. That said, there were patrons walking thru the restaurant maskless. I am hoping it was a one time error and that SER is firm in a policy that when you aren't seated you are wearing a mask.
Incredible experience. Christian was one of the best server I ever had food very taste
Reservations were easy. Location is terrific! Waitstaff is very helpful and friendly. Some food items were very fun with the table side charring! Most of the food items were veer well prepared but the potato croquettes were deep fried instead of roasted, and roasted veggies over cooked. I’d go there again!
Patio was lovely. Service was terrible. Incredibly slow am
Excellent! GREAT buzz. ALWAYS superior service and food. LOVE LOVE LOVE!
Amazing food and super nice stuff! Will definitely go back!
I would recommend sticking with the tapas menu. The bone in ribeye was good and cool to look at but it was not worth 120 dollars. Drinks were good as well.
SER is one of our favorite restaurants. We feel lucky our neighborhood restaurant happens to be one of the Washington-area's very best restaurants. The ambiance, food and service is wonderful.
Always fantastic. The seafood tower is amazing!
Had an amazing Bruch to celebrate my GGFs birthday at SER. Our waiters were the absolute best. They were very attentive and every plate they suggested was excellent. The three of us Ended up spending $460 on brunch, but it was worth it. We will be back.
I had octopus :)
An outstanding restaurant!
My husband and I went for a date night. I believe we were taken care of by the Manager. I don't know his name but he was awesome. Very attentive, he gave us great recommendations and even made one of my drinks himself. We had an amazing time.
Service was excellent and good ambience with it being quiet and decent decor. Food a bit on the pricey side but tasted good.
Great food, service and outdoor space. This place has been a savior throughout the pandemic.
Wonderful outdoor setting- beautiful lights, well spaced tables, great service, lovely music and incredible food!
The food and service was wonderful. Highly recommended.
We were there for Brunch and the egg dishes were acceptable but not outstanding. The cheese plate was lovely and paired with tasty toppings. The gambas (shrimp) in garlic oil were outstanding. We drank the Sauvignon Blanc from Rueda which was just perfect.
Beautiful setting inside and outside. Service was friendly but somewhat inattentive...approximate fifteen minute waits to be asked if we wanted dessert and drink refills. Small plates, duck entree, and desserts ranged from good to great with the exception of the seafood paella which was very disappointing given that it is a signature dish. Leftover paella the next day seemed spoiled and had to throw out. I suspect that we caught them on an off day. Overall experience was two and a half stars.
I really enjoyed this restaurant but will most like not come back again. I feIt the items on the menu were overpriced. I was shocked I was charged $140 for two bottles Cabernet Sauvignon, wine that probably costs $20 per bottle, at the most anywhere else. Yes, the the wine was great but I think the price was unreasonable.
Also, the parking was horrible. I could not get out of the garage because the gate was broken and there was no attendant to help. So, yes, great restaurant and great service, but next time I am going to Taco Bell!
Server was amazing recommendations were on point.
Everything was great .
Have to agree with the previous reviewer who also ate here tonight. The food was fine, but it was like pulling teeth to get it. We arrived at 7:30. Ordered around 7 or 8 tapas for our party of 5. We got our first round of 3 tapas, and 2 of the 3 were incorrect. Finally around 9:00 we got the rest of our order. We normally would have ordered a couple more small plates, and in fact were still hungry, but didn't want to wait another hour for more food. One of our party did order dessert and that took another 45 minutes to arrive. So all in all, we spent 2 1/2 hours for some appetizers and dessert. Not sure if this was a kitchen problem or a server problem, since no one apologized or seemed to think anything was wrong.
Terrible service. The food is not the same quality as it used to be. Won't be returning there. Not a great experience for such high price..
Great food and service, great outdoor setup, will definitely go back
Food Fantastic and service outstanding - SER is always our favorite restaurant!!
Great Food and Service!
Very happy with our meal at SER. The food was delicious. I love the large outdoor dining space. Cocktails are very good too. We will be back.
Our server, Luis, was so friendly! He is studying to become a sommelier. It was a lovely place to chat and share plates.
We went to SER for Easter and my son’s 8th birthday. The service was impeccable, as always, despite a busy day on their lovely patio. We loved trying some of the newer items on the menu (e.g., shrimp cakes) and some tried and true favorites (e.g., the chocolate soufflé). A great day! Thanks SER!
Very nice Easter Brunch in the sun and shade outside. With the outdoor crowd (safely spaced), it felt like we were back in civilization again. Attentive service and very good food.
