We went in the evening on a Thursday. Atmosphere was nice and they had karaoke night. Truffle pizza was delicious, so was the gnocchi. I would definitely recommend. 🍴

Considering the place was really busy there should have been a much larger waitsstaff as well as kitchen staff. It took at least 25 minutes before we were able to place an order, then waited at least 30 minutes for our appetizers. My cioppino was good except that it only came with two small pieces of bread, which should have been toasted with garlic and herbs instead of serving plain cold bread. Our entrees took another 30 mins to arrive, my pizza was cold and missing the artichokes. My boyfriends chicken parm with spagetti was totally tasteless. It took another 15 mins to flag our waitress down about my order. I then had to wait an additional 10 minutes while the kitchen made a new pizza , which finally arrived hot and with all the ingredients. Needless to say we will Never go back to this restaurant again! don’t waste your time and money here when there are so many far better dining options available in the mall.

Pasta was delicious! Service was good considering how busy it was. My biggest complaint is paying $16 for their special salad that boasted of avocado and hearts of palm with only one sliver of each. The roasted vegetables side only had 3 total thin slices of carrot and zucchini for $7. A bit more vegetales would’ve been great considering it’s a vegetarian’s only healthy source of protein.

This restaurant is inside the mall, the food is ok but do not expect anything special. Our waitress was nice and attentive. Expect a lot of strollers, toddlers and shopping bags everywhere, specially at lunch time.

The restaurant seemed to have had a kitchen problem during my visit. It took over an hour for my food to arrive and the table next to me was longer yet. We ordered pasta and a pizza. Not good that should take that long. Quality of food was good. Disappointed by service.

Had a reservation but still wasn’t seated timely. I think the host was overwhelmed. But there was another host who was seating people she knew without reservation, and that’s why tables were not available for those with. Reservation. It’s not that complicated: only seat those with a reservation and put the others on a waiting list.
The wait abs the table we ended up with were a big disappointment. That host should know better.

The server was very unknowledgeable about the menu. But more importantly the overall service was terrible. We waited well over or very close to 90 minutes for our food. And we are talking pasta dishes with marinara sauce type food. The food came cold and when it did come back it tasted terrible. Nothing about this place was good. Nothing about this place was worth even trying again. If you could give a negative rating this place would deserve such a rating.

They did not honor our reservation. They were incredibly disorganized and very little food was coming out of the kitchen. Several tables around us indicated that it took over an hour before they were able to place the order. Given it was a busy night after Christmas there was literally no where else (other than fast food) for us to go so we hung in there and as soon as our waiter arrived at the table for drink orders we just ordered everything! We ended up going to the bar ourselves to get our beverages. The food was surprisingly good given the service model but I will NEVER GO BACK THERE AGAIN. It was extremely stressful trying to dine in this chaotic environment with dozens of angry patrons literally screaming at the manager and the servers.

The first few times we went to Serafina we loved it! We had a very negative experience about a week ago, however, since we knew they were capable of doing much better we decided to try it again. That was a big mistake. This time, two out of three pizzas came out cold. How do you serve pizza cold when it's one of the restaurants specialties and should be made to order??? The chicken parmasen was overcooked, tough and cold. My vegetarian dish came out stone cold. When it was returned after being reheated, the sauce had completely dried up and was visually inedible. The waitress was very nice and tried her best to be accommodating, however, she obviously has no control over he kitchen. It will be a long time, if ever, before we go back to Serafina.

Waited over 1 hour and 15 min for our meal to arrive. We asked several times and the response was “ we are dealing with a large group” once done your foods out next. Very disappointed as i am a frequent Serafina diner in NYC. This was a business meal and i was VERY embarrassed.

The food at Serafina was awful! I couldn't believe how bad...it took 25 minutes to get our drinks (milk and soda). My children ordered angel hair pasta with butter which should be simple enough but came out hard and clumped together. My branzino was so full of garlic I couldn't even eat it, I typically love garlic but this was overwhelming. My husband ordered chicken parmesan and said it was "OK", mostly he liked the sauce.

The restaurant itself was very nice. Hustle and bustle The food was fair but that is my opinion. I had the mushroom risotto . It was good. We were a group of 5. We ordered appetizers and with that one of the main courses (gnocchi) came with it. When the actual main courses was brought to our table, the one that came previously didn't come. We waited another few minutes and it looked different than the first one
Will I return. Maybe one day

The food took nearly an hour to come and all of it was totally overcooked or even burnt. The manager and waiter were nice and offered to replace the dishes , we just couldn’t wait any longer. We love Serafina and often go in NYC, this one was disappointing.

Food was excellent but because it was a holiday they were slammed and the service suffered. I would go back though, the food surpassed our expectations for a restaurant located in a mall.

Nice atmosphere. Noisy but expected. Service was not as expected. Disappointed. Slow just to get bread we asked for numerous times. Server was pleasant just all over- working the bar, serving tables, etc. Management seemed overwhelmed with the crowds.
Food was ok but thought it would be better. Risotto not that good. Meatball appetizer was good. Seafood assortment was skimpy. Other dishes going by looked good- pizza, calamari, and chicken parm.
For the money not the best value. Might try it one more time after the holidays to see if there’s a difference.

Honestly, I did think most of the food was good. I guess, because it was Christmas, the service was a bit lacking. But. ultimately, what disappointed us was that we were overcharged for one of our items and bringing this to the attention of the server made no difference at all. So, I would NOT recommend this place. I don't want to be overcharged at a place that is already too damn expensive for it's own good.

We had been to Serafina several times before and always had a really great experience. Our last visit was a disaster. Most of our food came out cold, when the soup was returned it was literally almost boiling in the copper pot that is is served in. The food, as always, was very tasty, albeit anywhere from lukewarm to downright cold, BUT our waiter was extremely accommodating and very apologetic, he was truly a professional. He apparently told the manager who came over to express his apologies and to see what he could do to make things right. He offered too bring new food, give us dessert, whatever we wanted. It was then after 11:00 PM and we just really really wanted to go. The manger removed several items form menu (which we did not ask for or expect) and could not have been more accommodating and genuinely concerned. Bottom line, we WILL be going back as we know that dining at Serafina can be 5 Stars!

Our reservation was honored on time. Our server brought us our drinks and was friendly and courteous. We did have to look for him to take our order and bring us some bread. However, our food came out shortly after. The salad was large enough for three of us to spit it for an appetizer. Our entrees were also generously portioned and tasty. Everyone especially enjoyed the eggplant lasagna. We all agreed that the service was pretty good and the food was great. We will definitely be back!
