We went before seeing a show. The staff was very accommodating and changed our table when we saw another table opened. The food was outstanding and one of my friends is vegan and has been able to find selections to eat here as well.

The food was only OK, the ambiance was ok, the seating is so close together/tight but luckily the diners next to us were a lot of fun, they kinda made the experience great, definitely not the food, it was mediocre.

Great location in the theater district. Warm, welcoming and friendly. We arrived 1/2 hour early - no problem. We were seated at our table, had a glass of wine, and weren't rushed. Food was both beautifully presented and delicious; again, we weren't rushed - we could take our time over each course. Our server was considerate and gave good recommendations. I was delighted that they have soy milk available for their coffee drinks; I'm lactose intolerant and most restaurants don't have a non-dairy option. Only downside - it is noisy. But, we'll definitely return.

Ordered special steak. Was over-cooked and very expensive. felt like a cheap hotel dining. Other Serafina's have proven to be a much better experience. Stick with the pasta (safer).
Staff was friendly and very nice

Overall very good spot for pre-theater dining. Pasta dishes were delish, portions were generous. Family-friendly and buzzing with conversations so not sure I’d recommend for a quiet date. It took awhile for our waiter to come by and take our drink order. We opted to order everything at once and then drinks and food came at a good clip.

My family and I had a wonderful experience here. After seeing a show we went there for dinner. We arrived early for our reservation, the staff was so kind and courteous seeing that I had a 5 year old with me they offered us a table after they had a cancellation. It was so appreciated . Everyone (including my 5 year old) enjoyed the food and restaurant. I would definitely return and recommend to others. Much thanks!

Food was excellent as with most Serafina restaurants. Service was terrible - not the waiter’s fault as the kitchen was backed up. All of our meals were pasta so not complicated. We were nearly late for the show we were seeing after.

Very convenient to theater we were attending. At 6PM the place was beginning to fill and get noisy but you could still talk easily. We were promptly seated in a nice table in a 2 party alcove toward the front
Service was prompt both for a drink and dinner. We both had different pasta that was good but really memorable—no reason to go there for a “special” entree
All in we enjoyed the place but would go out of our way to go back—but very convenient for before theater meal

We found Serafina restaurant near the theater we were going to. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you are in the theater district. We started off with the Formaggi D'italia pizza. This is a 4 cheese white pizza with a thin crust. It was excellent and the mix of fontina, mozzarella, Parmigiano Reggiano & gorgonzola was perfect as no one cheese overpowered the other cheese flavors. For our main course, we both ordered the Tris of Sofia
(min. 2 orders) Ravioli with butter & sage, Gnocchi al Pesto, Paglia & Fieno. I would highly recommend this entre for the variations in texture and flavor.
When we are back in NY near the theater district we will come hear again.

Other than being hot seated at the back of the restaurant near the pizza oven, Serafina was a positive experience. We were eating before a show, and the food came out promptly. The wait staff was attentive, and the food was quite good. I had the pasta special- tagliatelle with steak tenderloins and mushrooms.
