Serra by Birreria
Step into the Italian countryside at SERRA by Birreria, our new "greenhouse" pop-up on the roof. The restaurant will transport you from the cold streets of Manhattan to the rolling fields of Italy. Sit down at rustic tables in the shade, and share down-to-earth dishes made with simple but quality ingredients from our favorite farmers in Italy and the U.S. and served family-style, just like in the countryside.

Waited 40 minutes after our reservation time, which, since it was already late was annoying, but our server was great. And though the food was slow to come out of the kitchen, it was excellent. Super busy, crowded and loud. The decor is beautiful, but if you're looking for a nice, quiet romantic dinner, you won't find it here.
Beautiful location. Food choices were very limited. Shrimp salad was okay. Sausage plate was massive. Braised pork was over priced for what you received.
I had a reservation, but had to wait 30mins to be seated... and no communication from the front desk. Also no options for gluten free dessert, which was the whole point of going.
The atmosphere is definitely the high light of this restaurant. I can’t be too critical of the food since we only had Thebes pasta and the poached shrimp salad, but if you’re not a fan of salt then stay away from the pasta. It’s very salty. But overall it was a nice place to relax for a bit and take a few pictures
I had high hopes despite the negative reviews. We went on an extremely hot day (85 degrees Fahrenheit). They did not have AC or fans on. We were seated at a table with directly burning sunlight and little ventilation due to the heat (the ceiling only opens a bit, not completely). We asked to be moved to a shaded table and our server accommodated. However, we had already spent about 20 minutes trying to ask a couple of other staff members who completely ignored us. Waiter forgot to order my main dish and claimed that I didn’t order it (wrong but no big deal, don’t blame her due to the intense heat). Food was decent and Spritz drink was great. However, don’t go here on a hot day unless you enjoy sweating!
Service was terrible, the servers didn't help us with information on the food and they were rude, not just ours but the others. The food was very small even compared to the pictures other customers put on yelp and was not that special or tasty. very disappointing. Only nice thing was the decorations of the flowers and the drinks need to be fixed, they barely had any flavor.
No. Service is slow, overprice food for a food that is not good.
What a great spot for pics and fresh italian food! Definitely would shut the place down and get married there!!
Waited half an hour after the reservation time to be seated, the bar was out of gin, and there was no gnocchi left. How does an Italian restaurant run out of pasta?
Very busy, no real view from the rooftop. Food was good, but the food served downstairs is as good or better. The fake flowers are pretty, but not awesome. After waiting weeks for a reservation, awesome is what was expected.
It was my first time there and the atmosphere was amazing very beautifully decorated with flowers and the food was fantastic. Drinks were great but my service was extremely poor! My waiter only came over to take my order and drop the check. He never came over to check on us, to ask if we needed more drinks and never gave me the dessert menu. Which i didn’t understand because he was attentive to the table next to us and behind us to make sure they were ok but always passed my table straight. My service was the only issue for me to have the perfect experience
Must have a reservation on weekends! Beautiful roof. They need more bartenders. We waited a while to get a drink before lunch. BUT gorgeous place, great quality food, great for a lunch with the girls or your SO!
Very slow service and marginal food. Cute ambience but our lunch took over two hours.
Food & drinks are absolutely terrible, would not go back
Cute environment. Come a little bit later when pics will look better when it’s not as bright. The food wasn’t amazing. But the servers are great.
This is definitely all about the ambiance here, absolutely stunning with all the flowers for spring! That being said, the food and drinks were just okay, almost a tad disappointing considering we had to make a reservation one month out. If you’re looking for something Instagram worthy, go for the pics haha.
We were away for Mother's Day so planned to celebrate there the following weekend with both sets of moms. Due to trains not running and then terrible gridlock, we were running so, so late (like a half hour late) and the hostess was lovely and accommodating and was still able to seat us. The place was very busy and sometimes it was hard to get the attention of our waitress, we waited a decently long time for food, but our server was lovely, everything was delicious and everyone was full. Plus the moms loved how gorgeous the place is! I would come back and I'd recommend. Dress pretty and leave plenty of time.
Even tho we made our reservation at 12:00pm and we arrived on time, they managed us to seat on the table by 12:42pm
Service was amazing considering the volume of people in the restaurant at the night I went. Wine and cheese board is a must, Buffalo Mozzarella is to die for. We got the Aperol Spritz and got enough for 3 glasses between my friend and I for $35, great deal overall. The flowers are gorgeous and at night its still beautiful with lights surrounding the branches. 10/10 to visit if youre in NYC
Food overpriced. Service inattentive. Freezing with no heat lamps. Food generally mediocre.
Horrible food and service.
No customer interaction from server did his best to do bare minimum. Attitude. Even bragging that Eatalys a multi million dollar company we can afford to take an entry back. Our gnocchi dish was bad. Very soft and no pasta taste to balance the potato. That’s pasta cooking 101. Menu said spritzer viola comes with edible flowers. NOPE! Blackberry. I was told I had to order apps and entry at the same time. Rules! Are you kidding me? Mr attitude takes our half full bottles water without asking if we were done. The much hype flowered canopy cieling looked like they were dragged out of an attack, like an artificial Xmas tree all bent up and slapped above. A disappointing way to spend my wife’s birthday. Will never go back and I’m sure they won’t miss me as we heard they’re a multi million dollar company....
We were a group of 10 for my daughter's 28 birthday. We were seated right away and had attentive service. The food was wonderful and the atmosphere was a dream. We were all very pleased with the restaurant.
I loved my whole experience here!! The ambiance was beautiful. The only thing i wish they had was gluten free pasta/more gluten free options, but still everything was great - will definitely be back!
Wouldn't recommend it for dinner. The service is below par while the food is very average, and priced extremely high for what you get. If you looking for a trendy restaurant to take pictures and grab a drink, I would recommend coming here. But if you're looking for an enjoyable dinner experience, stay away.
We were worried since it was such a beautiful day that the place will be packed. We thankfully had a reservation and were in our table in 10 minutes. The bar was packed but our table was spacious and the service was good. We will definitely be back.
Loud and packed rooftop with absolutely no view of the city. The staff is extremely disorganized with lousy personalities (both the desk and servers). This is disappointing because you’d think they’d be more more apologetic seating you 45 min after your reservation. There is no space to wait at the bar nor did the bartender come over, after 15 min we gave up trying to have a drink there. Everywhere it’s is like an Instagram photo shoot with people bunking into you just to take photos, which is fine as long as you don’t have someone’s butt in your face while trying to eat overpriced and underwhelming food.
Serra by Birreria has a beautiful flower garden rooftop. However, the food there is mediocre and the staff is extremely slow/not attentive. I asked my waitress for a separate check and she gave me a hard time and ended up bringing one for the table instead.
I think the ambiance is worth the trip. I probably wouldn’t go back again. The service wasn’t great. My friends and I overheard a few waiters talking about us and how we were very late (we were late due to missing our train in Long island So we had to rush and drove in) and that we had been there so long and that we need to get out because they need the table. I was very upset by this. When we overheard this we were actually waiting for our waiter to bring us the check. We weren’t trying to overstay.
The food was delicious. The service was great. The views were spectacular. What more could a place offer
Food was mediocre. The service was almost non existent.. our waitress didn’t give us the second drink we ordered and only checked in on us once the entire fine we were there. But the ambiance and decor is stunning! I would recommend this place as a “let’s stop here for a drink” kind of place.
Great food good service and amazing venue
Yes I would recommend this spot, the ambiance was spot on but the food wasn’t that great. I would tell someone to go but only as a spot to grab a drink.
I would recommend Serra for the food, wine and the location. Well worth the visit.
Obviously the decor and ambiance is what brings you here. The food was good, but not great. The servings need to be bigger if that's the price they're making you pay for it. Service was okay. They said on Thursdays there would be a DJ, Photo Booth, and tastings but there was only one of those things.
I loved the ambience for sure. It was beautiful and I got to take lovely photos with friends. But the receptionist was... mean
Table service is consistently bad when I come. Very little attention
J ai mis plus de trente minutes pour acheter un cornet de glace en bas car trop de monde et pas assez de personnel.
J ai également acheté une glace en bas car vous n en proposez pas en haut C dommage
Cela a affecté ma soirée avec mes amis qui finalement ont mangé sans moi et se sont crus obligés de commander d autres choses en m attendant
Our reservation was at 7:15pm and we were not seated until 8pm. The food was not good. Yes, it is pretty, but not worth the wait/quality of food.
It was so beautiful to spend a spring afternoon with good friends. Great way to welcome spring in the city.
