Great food and service, and COVID compatible. Good choice to get out for a great evening.
Wonderful anniversary dinner out at SER! The patio is well spaced for safe outdoor dining, and we were seated right next to some heaters. Amazing food and attentive service over 3 courses. They treated us to a flan and cava for our celebration, which was so kind! We will definitely be back!
Given the difficulties of the current environment, SER is doing a great job of rising to the occasion. The food was great, the service flawless, the ambiance pleasant. I look forward to returning when they are able to have a full house.
I was really excited to come here cause I saw good reviews but was really disappointed overall with the experience. The food all though it was good, I found the service to be pretty bad. It took us over 30 min to get a waiter to come take our order, which was confusing because the restaurant didn’t have that many people in it. I ordered the pállela, which was really good but I asked for the meat, and they brought out seafood. I would have sent it back but I knew how long it takes to make pállela so I cut the loss. I don’t know if I’ll ever go back, didn’t really have a “wow” experience
Nice spot for tapas and wine! They have options for both indoor and outdoor (with heat lamps) dining.
Everything was excellent! Definitely going back very soon
Great Service, Ana was excellent, food was delicious, we will definitely be back.
We really enjoyed our lunch, they have amazing sandwiches at great price, Service was excellent, Luis our server was great and the Manager Sergio did a great job.
Excellent food and service. Thank you. Highly recommend!
as an out door space under cover in the rain, SER does great. Servers very friendly. Atmosphere can’t be judged in covid-19 environment and during a rainy day. I was just happy to be there.
Excellent food, staff, outdoor seating, overall experience. Couldn’t recommend more!
So good. Paella was delicious!
Sat on the patio for dinner. Got a little chilly (there were heaters out, but none by our table), and at some points it was hard to hear due to some of the other patrons, but overall we had a lovely time. Food was delicious! Cava flight was wonderful and our wait staff was friendly, prompt and yet not overly in your face. We sat and enjoyed multiple courses over about 2.5hrs. Will return again to try other menu items.
Anniversary dinner. We wanted to try a restaurant with a tasting menu. It’s a great way to try a variety of the food a restaurant makes. We thought some dishes were really good such as the shrimp , beef, vegetable tower, cheese board, flan and churro.
The service was outstanding. Our server Luis was wonderful and personable.
The restaurant did an excellent job, given the difficulties of the pandemic. They worked hard to make sure the heaters functioned effectively. This was the second time we visited the restaurant during the pandemic. We look forward to eventually being able to eat safely inside for seniors.
We went to SER for my husband’s birthday. On December 11, 2020 we were able to sit outside under their ample heat lamps. We brought warm hats and blankets for our tushies and laps. It was perfect. Plus, their delicious cocktails, wine, and toasty bread with olive oil warmed us right from the beginning of the meal. We started off with some meats and cheeses - our family each has a favorite: idiazabal, mahon, and manchego. My son got the kid’s steak and French fries (his favorite) and my husband and I shared a few tapas. We are currently digging the huevos rotos con chorizo the best. Then we finished the meal with the chocolate soufflé and churros and my favorite, one of Javier’s homemade digestifs: the Patxaran Casero is my favorite. Thank you to everyone at SER for a wonderful evening!
SER is an absolute gem and we’re lucky to have a restaurant of this caliber in Ballston/Arlington.
We had the Family Style tasting menu with wine pairing for two and we thoroughly enjoyed it. A highlight was the rare duck breast with creamy mushroom risotto. So too was the churros and rice pudding. We also really enjoyed the Solera Negroni, a lower alcohol Negroni made with olorosa sherry in place of gin. Delicious.
If you come with several people in your party the table side ribeye and cochinillo are really worth trying.
SER is our favorite restaurant in Arlington and we make a point of taking out of town friends here when they’re visiting. If you haven’t tried SER you should!
I don’t often write reviews, but this was one of the worst meals I’ve had at a restaurant. Food was bland, not well cooked, and the service was just as bad. I would recommend going elsewhere.
Excellent food and exceptional service
Great experience as always.
Great food and service. Outside dining was just right with separated tables and nearby outdoor heaters.
Absolutely amazing! Great food and Service.
Fun spot for small dishes to share! Food was very good
Thank you Ser team for the amazing night.Delicious food, great cocktails and a reasonable priced wine list and of course the service was top notch.
Amazing as usual! Tried a few new dishes and loved them-shark bites and roasted veggies! Always a perfect night out!
Staff was very accommodating, pleasant, and professional! Food and drinks were excellent. Will definitely go back often!
My favorite restaurant in Arlington!
There is nothing like that around the area.
Great Restaurant. Always great food and great service.
Great set up outdoors with plenty of semi-enclosed tables.
Wonderful and authentic Spanish tapas. Great coctails and wine selection.
They have a huge, heated , outdoor section. The waiter, manager? , was extremely knowledgeable and attentive. All his food suggestions were excellent. (including drinks ! ) Everything came out in a timely fashion. The only minor gripe, was the price. But I will be back again, and soon.
Great ambience snd food
The personal attention you get from the owner is awesome. They have done a great job creating a safe environment and have really nice outdoor dining. Highly recommend that you support this locally owned business!
This dinner out was for my birthday and because of Covid we wanted a nice place that had outside seating and heaters as well. This patio was perfect. The service was excellent and we all enjoyed our meals.
Excellent arrangements for social distancing in these strange times. Food is unique, beautifully presented and service is attentive. A very enjoyable evening fir my birthday celebration
Great outdoor seating area, service and food. Highly recommend as an option.
We celebrated our anniversary. The waiter and owner made the evening lovely for us. The outdoor social distanced seating is wonderful. The food was delicious. Highly recommended.
Options on the menu were great but execution was
