We will NOT return. We were treated like step children at the reading of the will. We arrived at 2:25 and our reservation was honored even though people were waiting. That was the end of the service. No waiter ever came over. One of the managers gave us menus and took our beverage order. Fifteen minutes later, she came back and took our food order since no waiter ever materialized.. Ten minutes later the manager came back and said they were out of meatballs, my appetizer. How can an Italian restaurant run out of meatballs? We BEGGED for bread. Eventually my beet salad came out. My husband was left sitting there with no food. His pasta was finally brought out. I have never endured worse service in my life. All the food was good, but we were not served. Our food was not delivered at the same time. We ate in shifts. It was a rude and offensive experience.

The pizza al tartufo is so good! Pasta cooked perfectly. Wine list is too pricey and if they are busy service is not as good as usual

We had a fine waiter, Juan. The wine by the glass is a rip off, a really skimpy pour....maybe 3 Oz. Shameful. Everything else was good. The bread was good. The beer salad and the Caesar salad were both excellent. The meatballs are outstanding. The pasta w bolognese sauce was also outstanding. The coffee is very good. It’s too bad the waiter pours a thimble full of wine. Everything else was special. We are going back next week.

It’s such a pretty place. 2 bars. One for just cocktails and one for cocktails and dining. The area with all the green plants gives the outside feeling. Bartenders, waiters and all the staff were very friendly. Food was excellent. The only complaint is how pricey all the wine was.

Second time visiting Serafina. Super convenient location just inside the mall entrance (Aventura Mall).
Quick, friendly service. Delicious food. I had the salmon, which was perfectly cooked and atop a bed of baby spinach. I splurged on the tiramisu for dessert. Actually one of the best Tiramisu that I've had. I'll be back!

We ordered 2 salads and we received them about 30 min late...when we questioned the waitress she gave us a look like she doesn’t know what’s going on and she will check with the kitchen. I feel that if we didn’t bring it to her attention it might have taken longer for the food to come out. The restaurant was about half full.

A little disappointing. Table wasn't steady. Waiter attempted to fix but didnt make it any better. Brought bread to table but no butter or oil/vinegar until we asked. Chicken parmigiana portion was huge but so salty I almost couldn't eat it.

I took a few clients on Friday night for dinner. We order one plate each and a few appetizers. My wife ordered Pasta Primavera which basically is fettuccine with asparagus, green peas, onions and garlic. When I looked into the check they had charged us $55 for this dish. The waiter told us "it has to be a mistake" Then she came and explained that they had charged us for the special of the day and deducted $29.00 out of that dish which still I believe for such a place is not proper pricing, I would pay that and more at Masa or at the Bernardin, but this was nothing special. Then the best part, they brought the corrected check and it read 18% gratuity which I was ok with paying but looking further I realized that $32.67 is not 18% of $152.50 but rather 22%. So basically they are stealing 4% of every check, They display 18% tip but they take an extra 4% of every check and this is automatically done by their computer, so is not accident, it is set up that way. Since what happened with the dish I looked in detail at the check but I bet a lot of people don't do the math and they take extra moneys. I am enclosing the check for everybody to see, be careful if you are going there.

Coming from a Restaurant business and owner of many restaurants, i need to tell you something. I love the place, but your food needs some love. It looks good but taste less. There is not love in the BOH, i can see it when i taste your food. Missing the flavors, please put some eye on it. This is my suggestions. Thank you

Food was just awful. Overpriced and awful.
We love Italian and eat out often. It’s hard to not get Chicken Parm and a pasta dish right, but they managed to screw it up.
Sauce was bland and below average.
Restaurant is a complete ripoff and overpriced.
Martini was $18 and not even full.
Pastas were in mid - high 20’s- 30+..

NEVER visit this place again.
