The service felt rushed, the tables were basically communal. The pasta was a bit less than al dente. Not great, not terrible... just fair.

I've come to this restaurant for years and it was like a staple to me. My family and I went for a celebratory dinner after my nephew's school play and the server was incredibly rude. They sat us in the far back (you could hear a pin drop) and the server seemed annoyed with us to no end. We felt rushed and the food was marginal at best. For the price point of this restaurant, I can definitely say it was a disappointment. And worse than that, we didn't feel comfortable to really relax and enjoy ourselves, which we all could've used. Really not happy to spend several hundred dollars on a disappointing experience.

I have been to many Serafinas, including in Mumbai. All are excellent. This time I ordered the mushroom ravioli, which to be honest, was too mushroom-y, but good nevertheless. All their pastas I've tried are incredibly good, and this is the only restaurant that has their portion sizes down pat. You can eat the entire meal, and not be overstuffed. Any more, and it would be too much food. Any less, and it would be a ripoff. This is just perfect. They have many vegetarian pastas as well.

One of our entrees showed up with mold on it. We probably should have gotten up and left at that point, but instead we sent it back and ordered a different meal in its place. When everyone else was just about finished with their meals, the replacement meal arrived. When the waiter brought the check, the moldy meal had been removed, but the replacement meal was on the bill. We pointed this out to the waiter and his initial response was "yes, we removed the meal you sent back from the bill". I explained to the waiter that charging us for the extremely late replacement for a meal that arrived WITH MOLD ON IT was slightly less than a good customer experience and he said "that's ok, the tip is already on the bill, you don't have to tip any more". A quick talk with a manager removed the replacement meal from the bill in a grudging fashion. I would not return to this restaurant.

I have eaten at Serafina for years, at multiple locations. This evening was extremely poor. Rocking table even after they fixed it, didn't bring extra plates because we shared or pepper flakes and our pizza was soggy in middle and all the toppings fell off. We did request a well done pizza. The upstairs needs acoustic tiles so it's not so noisy.

We have been dining at Serafina for many years. It is neighborhood kitchen. We always dine on the main floor and Alisandro is a fabulous host. The chicken paillard is excellent as is the prosciutto and burrata and it is the best tiramisu anywhere. Love this restaurant.

The portion size of our salad, for the money was absolutely pathetic. I would not recommend it because of this as there is nothing special about Serafina's ambiance either. When we told the waiter that we were shocked at the skimpy amount of chicken that they gave us on our salad-which was simply arugula, 3 cherry tomatoes and a little shaved parmesan, they did not offer to add more slices or give us anything else. We left hungry.

Reservation for brunch at noon on Saturday. Menus with brunch choices were handed to us. While we were looking at them a waiter came to the table and said there was no brunch menu available ! We were very surprised and upset as neither of us had had breakfast in anticipation of a delicious brunch. We were not wanting steak or pasta at noon ! We finally ordered a goat cheese and beet salad but the amount of goat cheese was just 2 quarter size thinly sliced pieces on each salad !i was quite angry and requested extra goat cheese for both of us. We were given 2 more pieces each ! The meal was totally unsatisfying and when the bill arrived they had given us a 10% discount but it was negated because they charged us $4 for the extra cheese ! We will never go.there again and I cannot recommend this place !
