1. the one thing i wanted in the menu was sold out. shouldn't happen on a saturday night but that's not the main issue.
2. service was very poor. Maitre D was fine but server took our drink order and didn't return for another 30 minutes to take our order for food. This is not an exaggeration. Also asked the bus boy or staff twice for help and they said they will let the waiter know.
3. also no bread while we were waiting (and actually not brought at all). we asked the other staff twice and the told us to ask the waiter.
really wanted to give 1 for service but would reserve that number if they were rude or inappropriate
Excellent, we had a great time and the food was scrumptious! Thank you so much! We’ll be back!
Dirty cups and utensils, inattentive server, asked for 1 seltzer he came with 3 large bottles of sparkling water and charged me for it. Probably the worst experience I’ve had and this is a staple restaurant I’ve been going to for many years.
Amazing took my parents to celebrate their anniversary food was phenomenal. Server was very polite
Ate there twice this week / food and service was that good!!
the food was amazing and the service was very quick. the ambience was great as well.
Delicious food. Ravioli, lasagne, penne bolognese, orecchiette sausage & broccolini. Everyone was happy with their choices.
Great wine & service.
Within steps to Loews Regency. Highly recommend!
Restaurant provided the Goldman Sachs experience, thank you
Had a great experience. Food and service were great
Food and staff was amazing. The ambiance at atmosphere was perfect.
We ate outside as there was no music. They did a great job with the 'in street' dining. The service was excellent, the food was the same. I had the Seabass, other members of a group had the Shrimp Salad, and two had pasta. We all enjoyed what we ordered. The bread was a table crowd pleaser.
I come here very often because it’s always great. Service, food and ambiance
Very dependable for consistently good food.
best food ingredients which leads to great food. Very cosie and good ambiance
Every time we are in NY we make a point of having lunch at Sarafina. The Gnocchi is heaven reminds me of my grandmother’s food!
Everything was fabulous I would highly recommend. Perfect meal
THIS WAS AMAZING. I’ve been here multiple times and it’s just as good every time. Gilberto is such a good server and was spot on with everything!
We visit often. And it is always SUPERB. Thanks for a great meal!
Food was good but there are many better places to go for pasta and pizza! I also didn't really like the basement vibes they have. Overall was just okay!
Serafina is always great, good food, our server was wonderful and very accomodating.
The waiter didn’t distinguish the types of flat water for our table and chose the one that cost instead of giving us tap water like the other tables. My dining partner wanted cheese on her pasta and said yes when the waiter asked. She never got her fresh grated cheese on pasta. We asked for more water and it took the waiter 10 minutes to get our table water. Poor service.
Great restaurant, very good pizza (try the Di Fabio you won’t regret it) and nice energetic ambiance
In these difficult times, they have throughout consistently excelled.
Always an outstanding meal. We always stop at Serafinas when we’re in NYC
Family dinner at a round table. Shared apps, separate entrees. Everyone happy.
Casual but upscale.
I’m a repeat customer from Texas.
It was our wedding anniversary lunch today. While we were seated promptly, we had to ask for a server after 11 minutes. We told him we’d order everything upfront. Food came promptly but a manager had to ask if we wanted another drink (we did, hence celebrating sans kids). No
Serafina Always needs to completely open up its street outdoor dining; being in the tented area they have set up is too enclosed!
Nice lunch though seated next to garage- no ambiance. Food and drinks good but Brussels sprout salad with chicken rather dry and tasteless.
Service excellent! Food was delicious and fresh! Friendly and made you feel welcome!
Thanked us for coming in. Will definitely return! Would love to try pizzas!
Great service and the food was really good and even a great children’s menu. Very accommodating.
Great food. Wonderful outdoor dining space. Attentive service while also leaving you to enjoy the food. Can’t wait to go back.
Returning to a favorite NYC restaurant for a fabulous birthday celebration! Wonderful to be back!
Great as usual. Salmon dish was outstanding but pizza could have been better. Love the ambiance.
Great food, great ambience, fair price
very good food! my boyfriend got served something different than what he ordered but it was delicious, and we got dessert on the house!
Lasagna was delicious but slightly over cooked. The ginger ale from soda fountain was thin, poorly mixed. The other 3 dishes were delicious. Would go again.
Excellent food and service. Will definitely come again.
Loved seeing our old regular waiter. The food here is consistently good and I’m so happy to see they made it through the other side.
Always a great experience with amazing service
Been eating here for years and yesterday was the first Since this Covid stuff. my 7 year old daughter wanted to bring two friends for her birthday and that’s what we did. They treated us amazing with a great table and an awesome waiter. Food is always perfect
Glad to see things are getting busy again.
