Beautiful outside setting, great food and outstanding service. Thank you.
I have wanted to go to SER for a long while. Because it was restaurant week, we opted for the tasting menu... and it was truly lackluster. Should have gone with some of the amazing entrees we saw others getting, but trusted the tasting menu would be equally amazing... we were SO WRONG. Bland and lacking personality.
Sat outside.... great setup, vibe, and distancing. Wait staff was hustling all night. We did the restaurant week menu. 1st course was great, 3d course dessert was spectacular. 2d course entree was meh. I had chicken, my wife had pork. Both portions were reasonable, looked good, and food was well prepared. It was just really bland, both the pork and chicken. That was surprising given how flavorful food is in Spain. Wait staff was super, 1st and 3d courses were super, but the entree was ok. Would not go back to try the regular entree menu... those are $30+ per plate and not worth the guess.
The food and ambiance were spectacular. The seafood paella is not to be missed. Sadly, kitchen timing issues greatly affected our enjoyment of the meal. Also noted that waitstaff were assigned more tables than they could handle on a Friday night.
Patio dining is superb at SER! Shared the cheese board with table. Celebrated friends birthday in style!
Meal was superb! I love the outdoor terrace. I felt that I was transported to a European location
Highly recommend the paella, it's delicious! Very good Covid protocols with seating outside and tables spaced far apart. Wait staff are patient and make excellent recommendations for food and drink. I'll definitely return!
Amazing ambiance as usual at SER, and happy to see heaters outside so I can keep going throughout the colder months! This is becoming my go-to for a nice dinner in Ballston. Helpful waiter tonight too as I navigated some dishes I've never tried. Great experience!
Visited on a Sunday for brunch. The food was delicious, the wait staff was kind and attentive, and the outdoor patio space felt very safe because of the distance between tables.
Wonderful venue for a date night.
Great atmosphere and excellent cuisine.
Try SER for a your next night out- you won't regret it.
Food presentation often outshines flavour. Service is brisk and friendly. It’s getting too cold to sit outside, despite the lovely tent.
They have always has excellent food and service. They are now also doing a great job of keeping customers and staff safe during the pandemic. Tables are separated, staff and masked. It was really well done!
Recently, we booked a table at SER for a small family gathering on the patio. From start to finish, SER staff did a wonderful job! The patio is just outside this beautiful local dining gem, and tented from the elements. Staff implemented COVID safety precautions, including digital menus and no touch payment system. The red sangria was awesome, as were the variety of appetizers (shrimp cocktail, crabmeat), small plates (croquettes, stuffed peppers, fried eggplant), and full plates chosen. This is a special place and we are grateful they are open and serving! Thanks for making our family meal a memorable one and to staff for showing such grace and elegance during a challenging time.
Great food, staff, and experience. Will go back!!
Ser is far the Best Restaurant in DC area.
Food was phenomenal and the service is top notch.
Highly recommended to anyone, you will not be disappointed.
Food and drink was good, service was a little slow, but overall a good experience.
The most awesome outside dining experience in all of the DMV! The food and the service and the overall experience is exceptional!!!
Lots of gas heaters and large outdoor area with the option of dining under a tent also.
Ser doesn’t disappoint - everything was stellar, from the cava sangria to the shark bites to the seafood paella. Bravo!
An excellent outdoor dining experience- great service, wonderful food, and an all-around good evening; I definitely intend to return.
Great Food, great outdoor dinning. Really enjoyed.
Great as always
SER was a great fit for a rare kid-free pandemic date. The food was delicious, striking a balance between comforting and elegant so it felt like a getaway. Even the bread with olive oil was excellent. The restaurant did a wonderful job adapting by setting up a huge tent with tables far apart. Service was friendly and attentive. The garage was easy and is $2 with validation. We'll be back.
We have been numerous times at Ser and it never let us down.
The outside seating was comfortable and enjoyable, the server absolutely charming, helpful, and efficient, the servings beautifully presented and flavorful. We enjoyed the tasting menu with wine pairing. The wines were not always the best choices but there were no real conflicts.
Great food, great service, amazing outdoor seating.
Great restaurant and service with amazing food! We came around 9:15 and felt bad because the kitchen was closing soon but they insisted to seat us and let us stay past closing. Owner is a great guy and knows how to run a business. Go for yourself and see!
Brunch was fantastic! Food and service were impeccable as always!
Great food a Spanish culinary experience. We loved it!
Usually go for dinner but brunch was just as fabulous. Oysters were fresh and delicious - perfectly presented, great accompanying sauces. Seafood paella continues to be the most authentic I’ve found outside Barcelona. Fresh dry white wine. Finishing off with chocolate suffle and goxa dessert + espresso - absolute perfection. Could not recommend more.
Beautiful and safe social distance dining. Amazing food, wine & service!
It’s hard to rate any restaurant during these crazy times. With that said, SER has an interesting menu, the food is fantastic, and the service is perfect. It appears that extreme caution is being taken to protect the safety of patrons and staff, and the outdoor dining area is very nice. The downside: when I had dinner it was over 90 degrees and humid, and the backdrop of noise was from rush hour traffic on gridlocked Glebe Road.....all beyond the control of the restaurant. I highly recommend this place, and hope we can all get back to normal before long.
Love! This restaurant is amazing, so glad they are able to stay open! The outside seating area is perfect, and the food is delicious! Service impeccable, ask for Walter! Amazing server!!
Brunch was amazing 😋
Thank you Ser for the delicious meal and wonderful service.
Ser what’s great the staff was very friendly the food was delicious I had the foie Gras which was amazing I also had the sea bass would definitely come back.
Authentic food from Spain. Highly recommended!
The outdoor setting was very nice. Food for restaurant week was very good and one could order a la carte. Full menu. Parking in the street was available on a Sunday even though signs said no parking.
Great spot for groups. Patio is fantastic-- well spaced out. Love the food and staff!
The shark bites was great
Great food and wine is paired well.
