Great romantic restaurant. Specials were amazing.
What a fantastic experience. Found this place by dumb luck and couldn’t have been more happy. Seating on the water. Excellent service (our waiter from Capri was great.. Joey too!) osso bucco was amazing.. bone in veal chop parmigiana.. meatball app.. great wine selection and lemoncello to end the night! Highly recommended
We had a great time at Serafina to celebrate my boyfriend’s 30th. Everyone was so pleasant and it was hard to pick our meal for dinner because everything just tasted so good! The chocolate mousse was gone in seconds. There was not one thing we ordered that did not taste delicious. Our server was so nice and we can’t wait to come back again to Serafina to bring more friends and family.
Great date place. Excellent selection and Jennifer was a perfect host.
Great food great service
Very nice outdoor patio on the water for dining. Attentive and fine service. A real jewel of a restaurant in Ft Lauderdale
Perfect waterfront hidden gem with amazing food and wine!
Amazing experience for first date. Love it because from outside it doesn’t look like much then before you know it there’s a great ambiance in the back with a lit candle, boats, and music to make you feel like you’re in Italy! Definitely going back for date night!
Our first visit, I’ve passed so many times heading out of Victoria Park. It’s a wonderful family restaurant, lovely meal on the water. Reasonably priced, great service.
Excellent service and food will definitely go again and recommend friends
water front, quiet, romantic, delicious food, leisure dinner
Great service as usual
Food never disappoints
We came on a recommendation so glad we took it. The food, service and ambiance were excellent. We sat out by the water, and it was very peaceful. Our server was great, understood how to properly space courses, gave excellent advice on both the appetizers and main course. The front of the restaurant is completely non-descript and you'd drive by, not thinking not too much of the place. My recommendation is ... don't miss this hidden gem!
Food was excellent. Waitress was friendly and fun. The social distancing is good and the weather was decent for dining outside.
I am always happy here. The food is terrific and the atmosphere is lovely.
This has become my favorite Italian restaurant in town but last night was not best experience. The tagliatelle porcini was too saucy.
Great relaxing spot on the water. Friends we were with said she felt like she was in Italy with the surroundings and the great music piped in. One of my new favorite restaurants!!
We had a lovely meal and wine on the water. The branzino was great and good wine list with many of them priced within reason. Nice atmosphere and wonder service.
Great service, great food, great ambience. Outstanding!
We loved it. Bianca’s wine choice was excellent. One of the best meals we’ve had.
Fantastic experience first time there service was great and the food magnificent
Food delicious (red Snapper; lemon Chicken). Our server MaryJane was great. Made us feel right at home. She was personable and attentive. Her recommendations were spot on. Will definitely be returning on our next trip to Fort Lauderdale!
The Server Joe was fantastic. The ambience always perfect. The food has greatly gone down hill. Calamari and octopus special appetizer was bland. The orrichettie was swimming in pasta water. The chicken Francese has no taste. The best thing was desser - a ricotta cheesecake and a tartufo.
Food was fantastic and service was great! Can’t wait to go again!
Excellent for outdoor waterfront dining. Great atmosphere! The food is just as great!
We had a wonderful waiter...Joey. Our dinner was fabulous. Snapper in a tomato , black olive. caper, onion sauce with garlic angel hair...Delicious Definitely the best bread in Fort Lauderdale.
The ambience is beautiful. The servers and staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The food is absolutely delicious. It’s a great hidden gem in our minds. From the street you cannot even tell it is a restaurant, however; once you step inside and onto the waterfront dining space- it is a different beautiful world.
The only reason i did not rate a 5 is because it is pricey. However, if you don't mind spending for outstanding food, service and ambiance then it would be a 5 for you. Highly recommend the grilled octopus and calamari appetizer as well as the beet salad. Two of us shared the snapper livornese and it was plenty for two.
Great option for outdoor dining.
Amazing food - some of the best Italian we have ever had - Service was great - don’t be fooled be the entrance as it is amazing
We always have a great time at Serafina by the Water. The food is excellent and the service is impeccable. 5 stars
This place has a nice old school feel for Fort Lauderdale. Dining and looking at the water and boats is a nice plus to go with the outstanding food. Calamari and Octopus appetizer and/or the carpaccio appetizer is the way to get started.
First time and will definitely return. Delicious Italian food and great service .
A good choice to have a excellent lunch or dinner in a relaxing ambience
This restaurant was amazing. The service was immaculate and the food was one of the best meals we’ve had in ft. Lauderdale.
Had a great birthday dinner
Serafina does it again with an amazing meal and great ambiance!
Great, low key Italian spot right on the water. Great Italian menu with cool casual ambiance. All of the appetizers and entrees were great. We will be returning for sure.
We sat outside and really enjoyed the view.
