The food was terrible and over priced. We saw our server once every 30 mins probably. They took about 30 mins just to serve the drinks. Our server was very kind just would not go back. Not worth it

Hard to find host stand. The Eataly shop/market was very crowded and hard to navigate. Serra itself was very nice and spaced out. Wish it had its own entrance.

The food was so good (we had the risotto and the trout), and the cocktails were incredible. The service in general was really good, but if you're going to card one member of the party, you should card both so that I don't feel terrible about myself for most of the meal - my fiancee and I are both under 30!

Although the food and setting were great I was a little turned off with the hostess. I made it known that I wanted to sit at the warmest spot available (because I was cold) but she was very hesitant to move us. We were seated by an open window when there were inside tables that were available! My husband had to go back to her and practically beg her to move us....This was very unprofessional and we almost left. She finally let us pick a table closer to the bar. Our server/waiter was very gracious and food delicious.

Service was not amazing - definitley slow. They were out of the dish we wanted and there weren't a ton of option. Very expensive, had to pay for bread. Very pretty inside and a pretty place.

Very crowded for a place thats not really outdoors and not very much protection between tables. lots of heaters but if you are sitting by open windows on the wall very cold. Hard to find a place these days with this many people sitting in a open room.

We all enjoyed our meal...food was great. Although many servers around, the service was less than great. Our check was brought before we asked for it when no request to see if we wanted desert was made. Then, we ordered some coffees and desert and waited a VERY long time...maybe 30 mins. or thereabouts. Although apologies were made, it seemed that the communication amongst servers was lacking.

The place is beautiful! The food is okay, not the best. It's a bit too over priced considering the taste of the food. You would think everything would taste exceptional because of where the location is and because of the price, but it was ok. The only thing we actually liked was a pork that they have on the menu and the drinks. The pastas and risotto were whatever.

The food was underwhelming. My friend’s hot apple cider came out and it wasn’t hot or drinkable. Did not taste very good. The Negroni flight was just okay. The rest of the food was very average - I was disappointed and wouldn’t bother coming back considering the price.

Great date. It is upsetting how little amount of time that we got to spend there (1.5 hours limit).

Food was awesome but small portions.

I had a reservation for 5.15 pm, we arrived at 5, but had to wait till 5.40, why make reservations if I won’t be allowed in at that time? Also, parking is hard to find so we found one and parked for maximum hour which was 2 hours, but by the time I was allowed in I had only 1 hour left for parking so we had to order in a rush, and when we asked for the bill the server was looking at us weird, like why? I decide when I want the bill and when I leave, you guys already made me wait half an hour and wasted my time, so now I need to leave in a rush but I got the vibe that he was judging us that we didn’t order much and leaving in a hurry, but we did that because we were already disappointed by the waiting time and in a rush so we don’t get a parking ticket. Anyways, the decoration was nice, that’s the main reason I went for, if you don’t care about service or have a lot of time in your hand or took the subway there or and just want it for Instagram then go to this place. But if you’re looking for quality time and good top level service I’d say go somewhere else, at least based on my experience.

Understand this is during Covid, so maybe unfair to rate at this level. While the food was good, I don't think it was worth $45 per person and that was without alcohol or large plates (no meat), and no appetizers, but with dessert.. The price goes up from there very quickly. We had 4 people, a shared charcuterie board between two people because they weren't hungry, two risotto dishes, and 2 desserts, and it was $175. The service could have been a little more attentive as well (water ran out twice and had to get someone to ask to get our waiter to refill). Dessert was fairly small, with coffee\espresso\latte. Again, hard to find places in NY during covid so I was still ok with this price given the situation, and was a great time, just a little expensive.

Was really expecting more from Eatly. They just had some basic decorations up, limited and very expensive menu and with the windows open, it ended up being pretty cold. I personally didn’t think it was worth the price.
