Beautiful place, but not outstanding. The food is ok, the place is gorgeous, but noisy. The price is expensive for what they offer.
Service was poor and food was not what our party was expecting for the cost and given reputation. Extremely disappointed.
Mediocre food. The space is delightful but the fare doesn't match up
The service was impeccable. Our waitress was on point even though she was super busy with other tables she made time to make us feel comfortable and provided great food and drink suggestions. I would definitely visit the establishment again
Wonderful restaurant with delicious artisan flavors.
We had been there years ago and it was fabulous!! This trip was less than desirable. We were seated with reservations week in advance at the worst table in venue. Ordered wine and app and no one ever came back so we left. Very loud and poor service. Not going back
Decor was great, food was good... The only downside to the visit were the tables being so close to each other. With less than a foot between tables you are basically sitting together. If it wasn't for the lack of personal space I'd give it 5 stars. If you're looking to have a personal or intimate dinner with someone this may not be the best option.
Amazing food and service
Beautiful space and great food! The menu changes with the season and so does the décor. Can't wait to go back when the roof is open!!
Go for drinks and maybe some appetizers...but not really a great food place
Amazing food, attentive service, all around superb! Food was amazing!
We had a 7:45 reservation but got there little early. Hostess told us to wait in the bar. Let me start there we enter and it was like “ OMG the noise is off the charts “ people were hovering all around. Not suitable for a date night at all. It was overwhelmingly crowded. Body brushing. And it’s Wednesday night, can’t imagine how weekend looks like there. Then we ordered drinks which was good. Then we get seated at around 8pm. The seat was literally in the middle of the dining room. Tiny table. There was a couple sitting inches away from us. We could literally hear each others conversations. We order. We get served a cold tasteless bread with Olive oil as a compliment. No complaints, it’s free. We don’t touch it. Then we get the same bread little warm with some butter. To our surprise it’s the appetizer we ordered “PANNE OTTO” THE SAME COMPLIMENTARY BREAD WITH THE SAME OIL WITH SOME BUTTER lol. Wasted 10$ for the same complimentary bread with butter. LOL The Fried Brussels were so bitter when we told the server he said it’s coz of the vinaigrette and said we can cancel the order. We did. Even after that very patiently and optimistic we waited for our main course. I had ordered the risotto and my boyfriend ordered half chicken. We get the food. My “Risotto” was literally just butter and rice, nothing else no flavor. 26$ for butter with rice??? For real???My boyfriend’s half chicken was literally just a plain rotisserie chicken and couple of baby carrots. Chicken had no seasoning, no flavor no sauce. He seasoned it with salt and pepper himself. He could barely eat it coz it was so dry. Could’ve gone to a casual Colombian restaurant and got that chicken with 5 sides with thousand times better flavor and paid lot less. We were so annoyed but we were super hungry and no energy to complain so we just ate couple bites and left. Horrible food, service was below average, the ambiance is the only good thing, if only that filled our bellies lol. Chef doesn’t know how to cook 🤮
We were sat a bit after our reservation but staff was very apologetic - gave us a free round and service was exceptional!
The restaurant is absolutely beautiful - decorated for winter season when we went. We ordered the fonduta valdostana, risotto al tartufo nero, salmon de lenticchie, and tagliata di manzo for dinner and tiramisu for dessert. Everything was absolutely delicious and portions were more than adequate. The service team ran like clockwork. The noise level in the restaurant was a lot and the only thing we weren't happy with. But the amazing food far outweighed the noise. I would highly recommend this restaurant!
After reading several reviews complaining of bad service an average food & high prices we went here with some trepidation. however we were nicely surprised at how great the service was how delicious the food was and we actually thought it was a pretty good value for New York City. All of our food was prepared very well and very tasty. our two teenage daughters were able to find things on the menu that they enjoyed as well. The ambience of the restaurant with all the lights in the ceiling is very pretty. we really licked out because we had a table with a lighted gazebo that we set under to eat.
My daughter and her friends went for lunch and enjoyed it very much.
Lunch at Serra by Birreria was delightful. Beautiful setting and amazing food
Feels dirty. Booked for 7:45pm, was seated at 8:15pm. No apology, no comp drink whilst we waited. Christmas decorations up in February. Disappointed.
It was everything we hoped it would be! I’m from Saskatchewan (Canada) and have been dreaming about visiting Eataly since Mario’s days on The Chew. It delivered!!! Such a wonderful ambiance on the rooftop!!! Serra by Birreria was a delight!
Great experience. Good food.
Dining out in New York
Food is just okay. The servers look extremely tired.
Food was pretty bad. The atmosphere was cool, but would not return.
Perfect ambiance. Great food. Loved everything!
No children’s menu and wouldn’t let us bring a slice of pizza for child who wouldn’t eat anything on the menu.
I always enjoy dining at Serra. You’ve got to make your reservation early, but it’s worth it. Unique alpine setting on a rooftop with farm-fresh dishes and unique wines.
The food was very expensive for what it was
Tables are so close avoiding privacy. There is no any kind of pasta in the menu and the options for vegetarian are very limited.
I had a lot of expectations because the place on pictures looks great, but there are many reasons why i wouldn’t recommend it. The tables for 2 are so close to the next one that it seems we were sitting toguether. The service is basic, and the food it’s too expensive and it’s really normal or that I can’r find for less price and better taste. But I can say the decor is beautiful

The place is very beautiful but there was just few options for entrees. The food was ok (not in the same level as others Eataly restaurants) and pricy
Beautiful venue but certainly the prices for some of the main dinner entrees were off the charts even for a seasoned nyc family. 20 Oz steak for 58? Had to be sent back cause it was cold, albeit a good prime cut, but waiting almost 20 minutes for the second steak to arrive finished any appetite we walked in with. Gracious hostess brought us some apps compliments of the chef but quite frankly when food is cold it’s a real turn off. O early salty though lydias recipes all have a heavy hand. I would go for lunch when one can enjoy the atmosphere of this little “alps” village in the middle of manhattan. Eat downstairs. It’s just as good if not better
I took my parents here, and while we loved the ambiance, we were unimpressed by the service and thought the food wasn't worth the expense. We had a 5:30pm reservation, but weren't seated until 6pm, with no explanation or attempt at an apology from the hostess. Once we were seated, my father moved his seat to be closer to me (because the noise level was really high and we wanted to be able to hear each other better), but a member of the staff came over and asked him (in a condescending way, to be honest) to move his chair back so he wouldn't be back-to-back with another chair. Granted, there was a ton of space between the two chairs, and no one sat in that other chair the entire 2 hours we were there. The food was good, but we were disappointed they were already out of fondue (at 6pm). We had been looking forward to try it.
The ambiance was nice , food is good the only small problem for the time of day it was a bit cold
The waitress was amazing and very helpful with ordering food since one of the people in the party has a severe food allergy. However, the plates are very small for the price and the chicken was raw.
