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...

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.

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.

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.

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.

This was my second visit to Serafina. The overall ambiance was energetic and the service was fantastic. I recommend starting at the bar for one of the phenomenal cocktails and ending your meal will a tiramisu or cannoli. During the weekday, the space is homey and quiet, with a Sinatra playlist setting the mood. Lovely time of week for a more intimate experience. A Saturday night at Serafina is just the opposite. More like a place to be seen, have fun, and enjoy great food and drinks with a group. My husband and I enjoyed a decently priced bottle of wine, appetizers, entrees, and dessert without disappointment, We will definitely be returning.

The waiter was about average in attentiveness. The food runner who brought the food out was poorly trained and rude. He didn’t pick up the dirty dishes before setting down the entrees...just putting them down anywhere on the table. I was not impressed with the place...better choices in the same mall.

Overall we enjoyed dinner and will most likely be back. But it seemed like there were too many employees walking around not knowing what to do. It took a long time to be greeted and for our order to be taken. We watched at least two to three managers just stand around looking into the dining room but never assisting the waitstaff or assisting with needs of any tables. The food was good and came out quickly. But honestly this restaurant sadly suffers from the curse of most Miami restaurants where it seems more importantance is placed on the scenery and less importantance is placed on the service.

Staff were very friendly.
However, there too many trying to attend to the table.
So, orders were mixed up, late coming, and it took over 30mins to be informed the desert ordered, was not available.
Such a pity, it's a nice place.

The food is great especially the Pasta with Lemon but I have yet to have a bad meal and I have been 6 times. The only problem is sometimes the service is slow and for a high level restaurant too many employees walk by your table and don't pick up something
