    I really liked the ambiance and we were well looked after but felt that perhaps another server might have helped and presentation for most of the dishes could have been better. The desert was unique and good.

    Got sat on time but it took nearly 20 minutes for our order to be taken. The food was good but nothing too special. It was not a bad experience but not something I will remember next month. Honestly, we went just for convenience.

    We came here after an unpleasant encounter with the doorman (security?) and hostess at Becco. We really enjoyed the food at this elevated dining experience. Although it's too cold to enjoy the terrace during the winter months, this location might consider some sparkly outdoor decor to liven the scene. There were some service missteps that were quickly remedied. Will definitely be coming back!

    Restaurant was absolutely gorgeous with stunning views. The chicken parm was one of the best I’ve ever had, I’m not sure if they make their sauce fresh but it tasted like the sauce was just made with my order. Even the house salad was amazing and it’s just a basic salad. This place was amazing but service was a bit slow we had to ask multiple times to multiple waiters for drink refills, utensils and food orders.

    Two waiters on three different occasions, came to our table before we actually decide what we wanted to eat. When we finally said what we wanted, that was the moment they told us that they were out of the food items. They should’ve told us that the moment they sat us down and gave us our menu. That basically ruined our night.

    For a Sunday evening during the holiday season, the restaurant had only ONE waitress helping all the tables, the wait was long, the food was not the quality level of other Serafina restaurants that we have visited in Manhattan. The place was very dark, the lights were dimmed to the minimum. The poor waitress was extremely busy (and he was very polite and helpful) and all the other people working in the restaurant will just refer to the waitress for everything. Very different atmosphere than the other restaurants of the chain. It was disappointing.

    Serafina in the SkyResponded on December 10, 2022I want to give you an apology about your dissatisfaction with our service. We may have been short of staff but we she never be short of service.

    The service was not good at all. We sat for ten minutes before we got water and we're greeted. The waiter was obviously rushing the whole time. Our food was so average. Do not come here. Go to a mom and pop restaurant.

    The hostess is the first point of contact and if she's not paying attention to the customers then it immediately leaves a negative feeling on the customer. I made a dinner reservation for the restaurant and after approaching the hostess, she made me wait a solid 10 minutes before she took me to my table. I was very uncomfortable waiting on the hallway while she attended to all the other customers arriving for the bar. Our waiter was nice but we also had to wait a long time for him to come to our table to get our drinks/ appetizer orders. Other than the subpar service, food is good and quick; and the ambiance is nice.

    This place has a very hip-hop/pop Italian feel to it. Laid back in certain respects. A bit trendy in its decor. Food was OK, the old fashioned (their version), not so much. Didn't have a few things on the menu even though it was early in the evening. Service was very good.

    Not at all what I was expecting. The wait staff were rushing us and rather unprofessional. The waiter's excuse was he worked late the night before and that's why he was getting our orders wrong. What we were served compared to what we were charged was totally NOT worth it. I've eaten in diners with better food and service. I would never return to this place. They try to be upscale with low standards.

    This isn’t like the other Serafina’s this feels like a cheesecake factory Serafina the calamari seemed like it came from a frozen bag and the pasta was pretty plain and uninspired the hospitality of the other receptionist was poor and no one working there seem to want to be there

    Our waiter was very inexperienced. When he first came to the table ask him about one of wines from their list. "I don't drink wine." Upon consulting the other members of our party we said we would get that bottle of wine to find out "We're out if that" Selected a second bottle for the table with the same response "I don't drink wine" when the wine finally came, he didn't know how to pour the wine. We ordered some appetizers and were ready to order our main course, we go around the table and I order the filet. I'm informed that it's not available and they "should update their menu" Once we received our meals, our waiter disappeared. No bread was offered with our dinner (Italian restaurant, no bread, REALLY) passed him the credit card as he flew by the table. No offer of dessert or after dinner drinks Complete disappointment

    Not a great time. Restaurant was not very busy and the decided to seat us right next to the one of the few other occupied tables. We ended up feeling cramped. Good was sub par at best and the service was very bad. Restaurant was also dirty and smelled strange.
