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.
I was very disappointed by the Farfale al limoncello...this is the second time that I am disappointed by the recipe (the first time was on July 22nd).
I used to have this dishes for years in NY...the sauce was more creamy with taste, and now it does not taste...
I will not order this meal again
Great place but BEWARE.... they included the tip in the bill calculation but didn’t point that out when presenting the bill.
As a result we didn’t realize we had double tipped until the next day.
A pleasant place to eat good pastas!!!! The server was friendly and professionnal.
A truly disappointing experience. Only 1 out of 5 entrees were palatable. The gnocchi pesto with chicken was bland and both my husband and daughter barely touched it. The server should have noticed and asked but did not. The filet was mediocre quality though the temperature was cooked perfectly but for $42, the quality of the meat should be better. The WORST part was the magician who was walking around the restaurant attempting to entertain us but instead was quite a bother and quite rude to my daughter. He literally told her to put her phone away and pay attention. It was extremely rude and then he lingered for a tip. We gave him money just so he could disappear. A restaurant of this ‘caliber’ should not use tactics like this as it cheapens the atmosphere. For our bill to be over $230 with automatic gratuity is quite an embarrassment for this establishment as the service, quality of food and rude magician is a reason why we would never return to Serafina.
We just discovered this restaurant and we were pleasantly surprised. Staff was attentive and professional and the food was excellent. The outdoor patio area was a refreshing change from the regular mall atmosphere (we were lucky it was cool).
Very nice restaurant. Excellent food. Little overpriced. The Turkish waiter is excellent.
Far away from the original in Manhattan
My Veal Milanese was rare inside
Our server, Mike, was great. We had a pizza as an appetizer and I had the gnocchi’s for dinner. Both came out quick, hot and were delicious. My companions had the raviolis and said it was excellent. Plus the drinks were tasty and flowing :-) I would definitely go back.
our server SONNY was great we were here last week and came bak again because we had a great experience
By the time we got the food, it was cold. Hamburger was sent back. Chicken paillard was too thin. Service was sweet but server didn’t know who got what...removed some plates before everyone was finished.
For the steep prices, and the high wine prices, service and food should be better.
Piano and singer a nice touch.
Great service, penne vodka was amazing. Try the Watermelon Arugal Feta salad!
Great food as always
Good food. Charged $5 per bottle of water. We were not told we had to pay for the water. Outdoor patio is lovely.
The food was good, the service very good, but the level of the music was impossible. We could not talk and we were in a booth six people. The noise was annoying so once we got the food ( it took a while) we ate fast to be able to go...
The food was great
The atmosphere was awesome
Everyone had a great night in a beautiful reataurant
Poor service this time ...
The Spaghettini a la Carbonara has NOTHING of Carbonara sauce is the wrong name dor what it is !
Favorite restaurant in aventura! Jonathan is the best waiter too— be sure to ask for him!
If the service was better, I would have given it a better review. The staff really believes they are working in South Beach or NYC.
Food was very good. A bit more than what I would like to spend for pasta but still very good. Service was excellent. Our server Sonny was outstanding. He was extremely attentive and a overall nice guy.
Excellent service and best fried calamari I had tried, also great cannoli and tiramisu
Food is sub par . Have eaten there now 3 times and have ordered different items from the menu. Consistently terrible . Very unfortunate . Needs new chef and better menu / happy hour items .
Chrystal took EXCELLENT CARE of us!! Everything was awesome. It was our first time here and we will definitely be back!!
Service a little slow, some dishes too salty, found hair in one of our dishes, two pasta dishes were served room temperature and were sent back to be reheated
Service was outstanding. I ordered pizza marguerita which was very good flavor, however not much mozzarella. It needs to have right balance between sauce and mozzarella . For a restaurant with Italian touch is unacceptable.
Everything was amazing - the food, service and atmosphere. I highly recommend it.
The food and wine was too expensive for the quality we received. Apetizers were small and average
$20. The service was good. Not worth coming back. I cannot recommend this restaurant. There many others in Aventura Mall that are way better.
Food was OK. Service wasn’t great. Just an average place with high prices....
Stick to the salads, pizzas and mozzarella menues. Skip the bread and deserts.
Have a quick chat at lunch time and leave.
I wish someone had told this to me, before I went on Saturday night.
Very good restaurant, but wine prices are outrageous, should review it ... bread always late !
Overall experience excellent...
Amazing beautiful restaurant in amazing location. All the employees are just amazing. One of the best places to eat in Aventura Mall.
Repas correct pour ceux qui font leur shopping au mall et qui souhaiteraient se restaurer sur place.
Really overprice with added service @ 18%. Food was just ok.
Bonito restaurante con comida italiana normal en un sitio muy cómodo!!Una buena late nativa para familias.
Lindo lugar, buena comida pero los valores son elevados debido a la infraestructura del lugar
Service sucks - food is great
This is my second time and I like this place very much. I have been to the one in New York City too.
The red flags started going off from the moment we walked up to the hostess stand. We asked for a table inside, and were told we needed to wait a few minutes, which was fine. We were then led to a table outside. The couple at the table next to us looked miserable. We soon found out why. The restaurant was full, but not crowded. There were as many employees as diners, and none of the employees seemed very clear on what they should be doing. The service was so slow. Our appetizer came 45 minutes after being seated. My dinner was not as described on the menu, and was inedible. The sirloin tips (menu said filet) were well past their prime. My meal was sent back, and we were told numerous times the manager would be over to speak with us. He never came by. We were so happy to get out of there, and am even happier to never go back.
