    This was by far the worst experience we had while in Miami! The view is pretty but that is where it stops and stops abruptly! Our waiter was extremely rude and I mean beyond rude, he had no knowledge of the menu and was put out seemingly to serve us dinner. The dinner arrived and it was bland and certainly didn’t make up for us having to deal with the terrible wait staff. There are great places to eat in south beach, visit any of them instead!!!!!!!

    We came for a very late dinner around 10pm so our only option was to sit at the bar which was fine. Food was expensive but very good. Very neat place place with pretty ambiance and good service. Would return.

    Bus boys continually tried to pick-up our guacamole and chips and salsa after repeatedly telling them to leave it. It happened at least 5 times. The server also failed to put in our entree order.

    Serena Rooftop is a find! My husband and I were in for Basel Art Week and capped off our brief trip with a dinner there. Fantastic atmosphere, vibes and food! Service was at times a bit slow, but it was a busy time (Basel). Also, loud but it didn’t bother us. Definitely recommend!

    We were very much looking forward to eating here, there are not a lot of rooftop restaurants on the beach. We were seated and the music was very loud. Since we were practically alone I asked if they could please lower the music and was told that they cannot. We asked for cocktails and I asked for mine with little sugar and someone else asked for his with less alcohol and were told that the drinks are premixed not made to order so no they couldn't do that either. We ordered food and it came out almost instantly - always a bad sign. When we ate the bad sign was confirmed. The food was dry, hard and reheated. The cauliflower was soggy and tasteless is was not a roasted caulflower but an overboiled one that is put under a broiler for a moment. All in all very poor meal.

    Not a lot of options on the menu, was not offered an option of bottomless mimosas but the table beside me had that option. Chips, salsa and guacamole that was served was watery compared to other tables. They burnt my salmon sent it back but all they did was remake the salmon and microwaved the rest of my food which made my bread hard. This was for my bday and I coulda went somewhere else. Food was blah..

    I was disappointed that they moved my reservation from the rooftop to the como como restaurant without advising me (the second day). I got overly dressed for a rooftop experience to celebrate my birthday, to be shifted without notice. Other than that. The food and and service was very good.

    We had a reservation for Serena but ended up at the Como Como restaurant because of the weather. The food was pretty good but the service was negligent and the restaurant itself was quite dirty. I don’t like leaving negative reviews but I was very unimpressed and disappointed that my last dinner in Miami was so lackluster.

    The fish tacos and baked clams were amazing. The pulled pork tacos however were dry. The food took a while to come out despite the fact that the place was relatively empty especially the guacamole. The drinks were delicious but a little on the weak side. Overall beautiful place. Very nice staff and would try again.

    The setting on the rooftop is beautiful and our server, Andres, was awesome. There was a live DJ playing various types of music. Enjoyable, not too loud. It was quite busy for a Thursday so I would recommend a reservation. The food was well seasoned but the desserts were the highlight.

    Expensive items that aren’t really anything special. The food tasted fine for the most part, nothing extremely unique about the flavor profiles (I had the shrimp tostada which the waitress had recommended and the barbacoa entree). The drinks are astronomically priced. Drinks that are $18 that are more in the $8-$10 price range imo.
