What Insiders Are Saying
Serpentine is a Dogpatch brunch institution. Also - a good Plow back-up.
Oysters were so skinny. Surprised they would even sell them at this quality and whoever washed them did a poor job, because there was broken shells all over. No much food excitement here and service was so-so. We felt rushed having plates removed although most of our friends were still eating. Then when we said no room for dessert, the bill quickly arrived in 3 seconds.
Restaurant looked tired and food wasn’t impressive. I wouldn’t frequent this place again.
One of my favorite restaurants anywhere. I'm only sad they have moved away from fried chicken. Super nice staff, delicious food, great cocktails. Yum.
Great location in Dogpatch. This place has been there for a while, but I remember the food being a little more flavorful. Service and drinks were spot on though. Both my date and I had to request salt (which is terrible) due to the blandness of the meal.
Went in for brunch and the food was delicious food. I made reservations just in case. The service was great.
Would love more vegetarian options
We went two years ago for restaurant week and the food was amazing. We went this time and not as impressed with the food but service was outstanding. The cocktails were great also!
Really nice dinner with creative appetizers and cocktails.
The service here is delivered by the entire team and is tremendously attentive. I like the ambiance, although the tables are a tad close. Overall, the food is wonderful. Start with the house rolls. I had a kale and pea soup, which was delicious. I moved on to seabass with fried capers, asparagus and leeks. The pot de creme dessert was superb.
Service was amazing! The building itself amazing! Food was cold so it was disappointing. Drinks were at least good but we wont be back.
Great food and seamless service. Excellent spot for a dinner with a colleague - would have also been nice for date night
SUCH an awesome spot. Delicious food and very cool vibe but most of all the service and servers were superb. Very accommodating despite delays and cake cutting - truly a great spot. I'll be back!
So fun! Made a reservation for brunch which was the right move for no wait. Great brunch cocktails and had the breakfast tostadas. So good and will definitely go back!
The food at Serpentine was excellent but it was the staff that really made our experience extra special. We called to change our reservation time to an hour later and that wasnt a problem. But then we got there early and the table wasn’t ready(duh). The hostess could not have been nicer going out of her way to find seats for us at the bar. It was crowded the night we were there but the bartenders and esp our waitress was so friendly and patient. Overall a wonderful experience. Thanks Serpentine!
Tasty burger and generous amount of crunchy fries! The shrimps and grits dish was also yummy!
My husband and I had an absolutely wonderful dinner at Serpentine! Food was amazing and the service was top notch!
Great vibe, high quality food, terrific service. Great neighborhood spot. 👍
Caesar salad was drowned in dressing. Short rib needed basic seasoning, it was so bland. Broccoli three ways was the side for the short rib, and the roasted broccoli element was over cooked to the point of being burned.
Perfect atmosphere for brunch! Menu has some classics as well as some fun southern options. Service is always fantastic!
Great food and amazing service... Beautiful setting and quiet area...,gorgeous women all around, wow
The food is creative and delicious, the service is warm & friendly and the atmosphere is inviting. I’d recommend this to anyone looking for a really nice experience!
First time at this wonderful restaurant for a celebratory Sunday brunch. Very glad we chose this venue for our special occasion!
Had the fried chicken with an egg and loved it! Mimosas aren’t on the menu, but you can order anyways.
It was just okay. I didn't feel like my server was very knowledgeable about the menu. I wasn't impress with the food either. Mostly because I didn't feel comfortable ordering what i wanted.
Took my younger son for a brunch on Saturday. After he looked at the menu, he immediately said that everything look delicious, we are coming back here again. Once his food was brought over, he proclaimed that indeed we are coming back again, as he can see that the food is delicious, and of course, after the first bite, he was hooked.
We didn't get to try two things which were a reason we came there in a first place, they weren't on the menu, but we will definitely come back soon, as everything was freshly delicious.
Drinks for adults were great too, a bit on a pricey side, but still worth it! Thank you Serpentine for making it easier to feed this little monster, as he is never hungry and trying a new place is a huge no-no, you guys got him hooked and he is looking forward to another visit. As far as dad goes, hands-down one of the pleasant experiences, happy and fed child, makes a world of difference :)
Great service and great foid
Food was mediocre at best. Edible, yes. But beyond that, it was bland. We went for brunch, we were there right when it opened and got seated with only a couple other people in the place. We ordered immediately and as the place fills up, everyone around us is getting their food. They very quickly and kindly sent us some food to tide us over and apologized for the wait. Service was friendly and lovely. When our food did come, we were disappointed. Fried egg was rubbery, due to being overcooked. Grits were under seasoned. Breakfast burrito was swimming in a refried bean paste and sauces. We probably will never go here again. Unfortunate with such great service and beautiful industrial interior.
Food quality has definitely gone down hill, based on the last three or four visits I've made. Occasionally a kitchen can make some misses....but the dishes aren't up to par. Assume new owner? Don't know.... but I likely won't return.
Cool NYer vibe, mediocre service, small portions, good food and limited small menu
Cool place. Nice folks. Food was good, but not great. Price to quality ratio a bit off. A dozen oysters cost $48. they were fine, nothing remarkable. I sampled 4 of the 5 white wines offered by the glass, and all were really mediocre. I wanted a richer white to go with the mushroom cauliflower rice main dish (which was very good) and the oysters, but had to settle for a beer.
Always consistent food and service and close to home!
Even though they were running late with the reservation, we enjoyed drinks at the bar and they brought us a free appetizer. The food was excellent. The server was knowledgeable, helped us with our food and drink choices, and was great all around. Also, even though the decor is modern, there were a lot of textured services which helped with the noise and we were able to hear each other easily. Really had a great experience and will be back.
From the cocktails, to the appetizers and entrees Serpentine was perfect. The service was attentive and made our evening amazing. Can't wait to go back.
Superior, as always!
Usually the food is excellent but for some reason this time it was very poor. Either undercooked, bland or strangely spice.
I loved Serpentine! Went there on a rainy Sunday for brunch and it was already full by 10:30am. I loved the ambiance, but it's a little bit noisy. The food is really good, although the descriptions don't really match the food. Service was great!
Food was just okay. A bit overpriced for what you get but service is quite excellent.
Great Caesar salad and scallops. Desserts were fabulous
The presentation was creative and appetizing....but then you take a note....and the textures flavors blow you away. Complex, delicious - a fabulous find!!
Awesome team and meal from start to finish!
