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.

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

Serafina Miami exceeded all my expectations! The outdoor patio and bar area transport you to an Italian oasis. The pizza is out of this world! We had the VIP and the Truffle pies both perfection! The salads are so fresh and lots to choose from! We had the Porto Benny and the beat salads and they were outstanding in every way. The pastas were hit and cooked perfectly. We had the arrabbiata the bow tie with shrimp and the “Al Pacino” just deeeelicious! Surprisingly at an Italian restaurant I had the filet mignon and it was as good as any steakhouse anywhere!!! The branzino was beyond delicious! We loved the atmosphere , the service and overall I will make Serafina Miami my go to restaurant in miami and aventura. From now on! Oh the cocktails and wine lists are also great! The famous Cocktail Kartel has created the cocktails so I’m sure they are all amaaaaazing ! Thank you and see you soon! P.S. the frozen Rose’ wine is a must!!🍕🍝🥗🍸🍷🥂🍾

If you are expecting NY forget about it!!! Nothing like their other restaurants. Very disappointing. I'm not sure what kind of Italian food it is but it's definitely something different. We did not enjoy our meal at all. Very expensive considering it's inside of a shopping mall. The service was great and the place is pretty but it ends there.

Food and service was terrific. Our waiter was Memet. He was attentive and worked with the Kitchen to accommodate our off menu requests. A bit more pricey than you might expect. Will definitely return next time my business brings me to the area.

There aren’t enough stars for this place! I took my parents to Serafina Miami for their Anniversary, and we were all blown away! Every item prepared was just incredible, and could be some of the best Italian I have ever had. From the pizza to the seafood to the pasta... it was amazing’ Not to mention, make sure you top off your night with some Cannolis made table-side!
Chef Dustin Ward has outdone himself!

Some of the items are very overpriced. You would assume that the quantity of food would be much more for the prices they charge. Drinks are also higher priced than average. They should either provide more quantity or lower the prices. $15 for an app of meatballs. Only 2 come in an order.

We really wanted this new Aventura restaurant to be good, so even after a below average first visit a few weeks ago we decided to give it a second try. I am sorry to say it was even worse - perhaps the worst Italian restaurant within a 10mile radius. The food was not good but the service was absolutely terrible. After not receiving main courses for over an hour we called for the manager who did nothing so we called for the owner. His response was the worst I have ever witnessed. He was unapologetic and when we gave him the details about the bad service his response was “we know”. We actually found him rude and abrasive. We will never go back and would be surprised if this restaurant survives as many tables around us had similar complaints, and with Bella Luna a short walk away, offering great food and consistently outstanding service, Serafina doesn’t have a chance.
