Serafina Downtown Boston
It was amazing food and great environment. There was an order issue that extended our time there but they made it up with comping the desert, will definitely return next time I’m in Boston
Everyone enjoyed their meal, delicious and healthy seafood choices followed by phenomenal desserts, and of course we ordered a pizza as an app to balance it all out 😁
We come here every time we are in Boston (at least once a year). The food is always fabulous and the wait staff is wonderful
We came for our team dinner and had the best time!
My client and I both had very good salads - Lobster and chicken. They were flavorful and with a great presentation. Staff was attentive and personable.
Our waiter, Carlos was extremely knowledgeable about the menu offerings, he was attentive but didn't not hover. Service was fantastic! Food was terrific! I dropped my credit card when I left and they made sure it was returned to me. Highly recommend Serrafina!
Service was slow, food is unremarkable. I won't be back.
Serafina is beautiful inside. The decor and the lighting are very nice. The food was just OK. and way overprices for what you get.
the waiter was very slow and non attentive. we waited about 10-12 minutes for someone to even recognize we were there.
Food was okay though not as good as I remembered. The service was surprisingly bad, with a very inattentive waiter and a largely absent car valet.
Serafina and the people wee fantastic as always! We have never been disappointed and this time was no exception.
Food and service were great. Ambiance very warm, friendly staff.
We met out two sons there after work to celebrate a birthday. Everything was great except the place could use an update. The bench I was sitting on was in dire need of a replacement cushion. Some of the hanging lights needed a light bulb and the walls were a bit dirty. However, the food was wonderful and our waiter Caesar was fantastic!
We ordered 2 pizza for appetizers which we all enjoyed and loved 2 grilled salmons that was cooked well and very tasty squash spaghetti with vegetables was excellent but the portion was not filling at all and the pine nuts were only a few may be some legume ( white bean ) should be added for protein so I didn’t have to eat bread to fill up
Service was friendly but very rushed in the beginning and when we told her we needed more time she was very understanding and tried to be friendly and attentive
Enjoyed the drinks and the ambiance
Good pre-theater dinner. Food and decor were good, noise level was way too loud.
On again, off again. Today the pizza was bad.
Excellent food with many great choices on the menu. Great place for a group with plenty of options for everyone.
I walk past this place everyday and finally decided to try it! I was not disappointed! The pasta was amazing and my husband loved his pizza!
Overall good experience. Service was prompt but actually a little too prompt - almost felt rushed, and then at the end I couldn't find the waiter. The food was good. Overall good experience. I would go back.
We were loud and slow since we hadn’t seen each other in a while. The staff was amazing. Food was great as well. We’ll be back.
The Lobster Mac n Cheese was delicious! Service was good, except had to be reminded to bring a couple of drinks to the table. Bus woman was cleaning table while one of the girls was still eating. Little bit too noisy.
We came here during a special vacation to Boston. It was rated 4.5 stars so I expected the food and ambiance to be good. Sadly, it was not. The food was so bad I barely ate it. The salad greens weren’t fresh and well past their prime. The oil they served with the bread was yellow and tasteless. We had an appetizer of bread with melted cheese and prosciutto-disgusting, didn’t eat it. The ambiance was tired and dingy. The only good thing about the experience was our waiter- he was nice and attentive. I have no idea why others rated this restaurant well. I would never come here again and would not recommend it. Literally left a bad taste in my mouth.
We requested an off the menu item (chicken parm with pasta) for lunch and it ended up being over $30! We were never told the price prior to the bill arriving nor were we informed the pasta was an extra cost. It was an outrageous fee and we will probably never eat there again. I definitely will not be recommending the restaurant, which is a shame because our other meal was great and I was a big fan before this visit.
The menu is well thought out and the chef does a wonderful job. The staff deserves special mention as they are the nicest and most attentive servers you will run across. Now if only I didn't have to see CNN on the TV there all would be perfect, I have enough stress in my life than to be constantly reminded of the horrors of the world while I am trying to relax and enjoy my meal.
Good,not the best, pizza in a very nice restaurant. Service is very good.
The salad (lunch) was creative and lovely. Good suggestion by our server. We were seated in a side room -- which best served our purpose for a business discussion -- and cut down the noise level considerably.
I love Serafina and always choose this restaurant for my go to lunch spot or drinks and dinner! The food is fantastic, the service is great and the ambiance is wonderful!
Caesar salad was excellent.
Rigatoni was uncooked and sauce was extremely greasy. Also mixed together before serving.
This is a basic dish that should be a staple for any chef.
Upscale but worth it. Excellent quality meal.
We have been to this place before. Last visit was not up to par in a number of ways. I contacted restaurant without response. Will likely not return.
We went on a Monday night with a group of 6, the food was excellent, service was great. While the drink service was slow that evening, the overall service made up for it.
Very busy, but attention from server and front desk personnel was a miss. Good food, good location and great ambience.
I found front desk personnel to be very unfriendly and unwelcoming.
The overall experience was great, the service was impeccable. The food on the other hand did not surpass expectations, instead i was disappointed.
Nice ambiance and service, but the food was disappointing. Steak was chewy and bland. Fries were too salty. Salmon entree was blah. Bread was cold. Salads were good and large enough to share. Sangria and margaritas were good.
Food was delicious but the service was terrible. The waitress spilled several drinks when setting them on the table and never apologized. It also took her 25 minutes to process our checks. She made us go through each person and on the back of the check number the people and write down what each person had. We asked for separate checks at the beginning and she said she was unable to do that, however, in the end she separated them after we had to do it for her. I would recommend the food again but not sure if I would go back to this location.
A pleasant dining experience. The server (Ariel) made good recommendations.
Food was great but service was slow. We had a reservation and got there at noon and the restaurant filled up by 12:30. It was completely packed and while the food was good and delivered quickly, follow up service for beverage refills was not great.
Very loud, too loud for a business conversation unfortunately
The best drinks and pizza ever!!!
Serafina is located near south station and a good place for a business lunch as it quieter than other restaurants. The food was not as great, though. I ordered an Orichiette pasta with rabe and sausage which was not very good. It came with a tomato cream sauce that did not go well with the rabe or ‘Rapini’ as they call it in Italy. Calamari and tuna tartare was ok but nothing special.
This was the worst service I have ever experienced. We never received sparkling water we ordered and our wine was delivered after we were done eating.
