    Waiter was very accommodating. Food was excellent, especially the meat which was cooked just as asked.

    The food was strictly mediocre. Definitely not worth the price. the service was ambivalent and the place was messy and too crowded and hectic. not worth the money or the wasted experience.

    We all enjoyed our entrées and drinks. This was our first visit to this particular branch of Serafina - we usually go to the UWS one on Broadway/W77th St, or the Broadway/W55th St. The food, and general affordability balanced out the less positive aspects of our visit. We found our server to be forgetful: I never got lemon wedges for my wter, even though I asked twice. We never got salt brought to the table - even though I asked twice - and ultimately, asked a busboy to bring me a salt shaker I could see on a table a few tables away. We had to ask for water a couple of times as well. When we arrived, it was a bit of a lull - and then you got busier and busier. So it got harder to get what we wanted.

    The spaghetti squash which is usually a favorite has been undercooked the last few times I ordered it

    Oh, how the mighty have fallen. This used to be a go-to place. Not anymore. First they tried to put us upstairs where there was not a single person (or server) so we moved ourselves to a table on the main level. The food was barely edible. I had chicken paillard and it was so dry I was choking and managed to eat about half simply because I was starving. Because the food was so bad it was taking me awhile to get it down and no less than 4 servers kept harassing us to take away our plates so they could turn the table. It was crazy. We had only been sitting there about 40 minutes not like we were lingering for 2 hours. bottom line: NEVER AGAIN.

    Great food and service as always. It was chilly out so we had to sit inside. The tables downstairs are too close to each other. We were in the middle of two other conversations at the tables next to us and also not Great for health.
