    The service was not good at all. We sat for ten minutes before we got water and we're greeted. The waiter was obviously rushing the whole time. Our food was so average. Do not come here. Go to a mom and pop restaurant.

    This place has a very hip-hop/pop Italian feel to it. Laid back in certain respects. A bit trendy in its decor. Food was OK, the old fashioned (their version), not so much. Didn't have a few things on the menu even though it was early in the evening. Service was very good.

    Not at all what I was expecting. The wait staff were rushing us and rather unprofessional. The waiter's excuse was he worked late the night before and that's why he was getting our orders wrong. What we were served compared to what we were charged was totally NOT worth it. I've eaten in diners with better food and service. I would never return to this place. They try to be upscale with low standards.

    This isn’t like the other Serafina’s this feels like a cheesecake factory Serafina the calamari seemed like it came from a frozen bag and the pasta was pretty plain and uninspired the hospitality of the other receptionist was poor and no one working there seem to want to be there

    Food really good! One staff person was extremely rude when I opted not to tip! In the end he walked me to the door of the restaurant and told me not to come back. And I won't be back! So so so so so rude! (He’s a tall white guy)

    Our waiter was very inexperienced. When he first came to the table ask him about one of wines from their list. "I don't drink wine." Upon consulting the other members of our party we said we would get that bottle of wine to find out "We're out if that" Selected a second bottle for the table with the same response "I don't drink wine" when the wine finally came, he didn't know how to pour the wine. We ordered some appetizers and were ready to order our main course, we go around the table and I order the filet. I'm informed that it's not available and they "should update their menu" Once we received our meals, our waiter disappeared. No bread was offered with our dinner (Italian restaurant, no bread, REALLY) passed him the credit card as he flew by the table. No offer of dessert or after dinner drinks Complete disappointment

    Not a great time. Restaurant was not very busy and the decided to seat us right next to the one of the few other occupied tables. We ended up feeling cramped. Good was sub par at best and the service was very bad. Restaurant was also dirty and smelled strange.

    We came from NJ. Made a reservation for 9:45 PM only to get there and be told they were closing and couldn’t take us. If you can’t take a 9;45 reservation maybe it shouldn’t be available on open table.

    Food was bland. Waiter lied to us and said the total (with 20%) tip included, there was 3 of us. Then asked for us to add tip on top of it. Didn’t give us a receipt we had to ask.

    Our server was incredibly snarky and rude with his responses. Asked if he tried a sangria they were promoting and had a snarky answered- in short he pretty much just said “duh” with a nasty look. I figured it was a normal question to ask about the drinks that are being served to ask their opinion on flavors/recommendations. Was obscure about certain charges. I personally enjoyed my meal- a friend that joined me did not. When asked multiple times why she barely touched it and being told it just really wasn’t good, he never offered any other options (comp/ new meal). Just gave a dirty look. When it came time to pay, when asked to split checks, again he had a bad attitude. While we were filling out the tip he’d make sure to stand over you and watch. Not just us but other tables. Overall the food and environment was good but not worth dealing with the server.

    This was one of our most disappointing nyc dining experiences. Incredibly loud (as my daughter said, if they have to issue a warning about the thumping music being as loud outside as it is inside at 5:30, they’re doing something wrong). We were starving, on a time crunch having made a reservation before a show, and didn’t have time to go somewhere else and wait on a Friday night. The outdoor seating is knee-height patio tables and reclined chairs, which doesn’t work to eat saucy pasta. We were never offered drink refills. Waited at least 20 minutes for our check, after asking. We couldn’t get out of there fast enough. My daughter (who was feeling sick) ordered plain buttered pasta and it was $19. Mandatory 20% gratuity calculated in the check total for the two of us who had maybe five minutes face time with our server, and tons of waiting. Try the Serafina location near Central Park instead.

    I love the Serafina restaurants, so I wanted to give this location a try. The dining room is absolutely beautiful - though you can also sit outside. I had a delicious meal and the service was outstanding. The place does have a bit of a clubby feel and the music is pretty loud. Just something to keep in mind if you're looking for quiet conversation. I would definitely go back.

    We went into the restaurant and about 3 minutes later : “ready to order?” Can we have a drink first? Then we ordered and the appetizers arrived and about 7 minutes later the main dish too but we were not finished. I like to eat slowly, not being rushed! The server didn’t make us taste the wine, fills up the glasses way too much… puts on the wine cork on it like if we were in some cheap place!! anyways the food was good…. Then came the check with 20% of tip already on on it! The Interac machine suggested that we add another 7%!!! Seriously? I like the choose what amount I give and 20% was way too much for the service we had! Won’t be returning!

    I went here with my daughter and her friend. They are 17 so we definitely met with restrictions for outdoor lounges but we were able to sit outside on the roof and see a slice of the Empire State Building. My fish was wonderful and the girls loved their pasta. It was overpriced but we were on a rooftop :) my biggest disappointment was I was excited to order a martini and there was literally no drink menu and my “martini” came in a plastic cup.

    Recommended by hotel staff. Food was expensive for quantity and quality. Steak came out extremely rare when asked for medium. Server hardly came around to fill water glasses. A 20% tip was automatically added to the bill for a party of 2. We will not return to this establishment.

    My daughter and I had a 945 reservation. We were seated right away but it took about 15 minutes for a waiter to come over just to bring us water. And then took another 15 minutes for someone to come over to take our drink order followed by another 10 minutes for them to take our food order. The food came out relatively quickly and was definitely delicious.
