Italian
A beautiful building on the corner of West Broadway and Reade Street with large windows, excellent for people watching in the colder months and lovely breezes on warmer days and nights. Comforting Italian cuisine paired with excellent wines, or one of the many choices from the large bar menu cocktails and spirits.

Open for Breakfast/ Brunch, Lunch and Dinner daily.

Today, I went into Serafina for a date night with my boyfriend. I’ve never went into this restaurant and we went around 9:20 pm. The waiter was nice and seated us in a little corner which gave us privacy. There’s wasn’t much people on the restaurant which was really nice because it wasn’t crowded or loud. I loved the quiet soft and calm atmosphere it had. The servers were extremely nice and I loved the delicious food there. Everyone there always asked us to enjoy our me and what we thought of the food, if everything was okay, and if we needed water. The decor was nice and simple but elegant. Loved this restaurant and would definitely come back again!
Our Order:
(2) steak and fries - $32
Total (price+gratituity included) : $81.20

Great food and very good service. My only complaint - the drink menu listed prices but when the bill came I was charged more. Not a big deal just bothersome. I didn’t say anything to the waiter but will think about this before going back.

Serafina TriBeCa does not have a working phone. After calling upwards of 15 times I had to reduce a 13 person party to 10 because that was all I could fit through OpenTable. The food was good but the restaurant was quite noisy.

Food very good
But
When we got the bill we got 20% for the services and plus 20% for the tips (that is normal because we were party of 6) but about 20% for services I don’t really understand what it was for.

Had lunch on New Years Day with our 2 year old daughter and they were very accommodating. High chair was set up on arrival along with coloring book and crayons and were ready to take our order immediately. Food came out surprisingly fast by our friendly waiter. Always a solid meal.

A great meal with family visiting for the holidays. The entire experience exceeded my expectations. Every dish was outstanding, from the bruschetta, meatballs and cacio e pepe, to the scallops, shrimp, and chocolate mousse. Our waiter was helpful, polite, and attentive. Thank you for a great evening.

My spinach ravioli was a little gritty. Spinach needs to be washed carefully! Service, while not rude, was disinterested. It was hard to get someone’s attention.

We loved our lunch—excellent pasta and fresh salads with just the right amount of dressing—but the prices, especially for a chain, were kind of ridiculous. There are more authentic Italian places nearby that cost less! Still, we could hear each other talk, there were lovely flowers everywhere; we left happy and (the ultimate sign of a good meal) had to fight to stay awake for the rest of the workday.

I came here to meet an old friend with her two kids. It was great that the restaurant was child friendly.
The service however was terrible. We never got a bread basket in the beginning. The waiter wasn’t friendly at all and then disappeared later on.
The manager came to drop off the bill and he overcharged my credit card $10. I’m so glad I paid attention to it. I called him over. He tried to act confused and then corrected the mistake.
I should’ve listened to the other reviews about their horrible service.

There are a large range of pasta choices, which I love. Pastas are offered on a scale of plain, traditional to decadent and fancy. Prices are a little high, but if you are looking for a nice night out with a promising meal this is a good place to go.

We made the mistake of going to Serafina two meals in a row- a Saturday evening and Sunday for brunch. The food was quite good (albeit overpriced); however, the service was terrible- it didn't help that we ended up with the same server both times!

For our Saturday evening meal, we were never offered a kids menu (nor were we aware they had them) or crayons. We had to get up to find someone to track down our server several times throughout the meal. He was unapologetic about the extreme delays and was generally MIA. The entire meal (for which we didn't even order appetizers) took over 2 hours.

We ended up with the same server for a late brunch on Sunday- at which time we were offered a children's menu and crayons. Despite a lovely and attentive busboy, our server was again completely MIA. We had to ask two different people to find him just so we could order our drinks/food- and then had the same issue with the check. Never offered bread. I felt terrible because the busboy was doing his very best, but our server was virtually non-existent and non-apologetic.

Either they are chronically understaffed (as we were there on a Saturday early dinner and late Sunday brunc- neither of which appeared very busy) or we were unfortunate to have the same uncommunicative, absent server.

The continental breakfast from the hotel next door is served within the restaurant space.

The waitstaff and female GM were rude and not accommodating in the slightest. When asked to have the entrees brought out after the appetizers (a very fair and normal request) the dishes were all brought out together. When we alerted the waitstaff, they took the dish, only to return it to us later, cold and hardened. When we asked to speak to the GM she was rude, aggressive and walked away mid-sentence. There are far better restaurants in TriBeCa, will not give the time of day to this location again.
