Food was amazing! Great wine list.
After reading reviews and also the restaurant’s website, I was expecting more.
Ambience is nice in general.
As appetizer, we had the grilled octupus with calamari.
I ordered Capellini Fra Diavolo Con Gamberi, the sauce and pasta were perfect. The downside were the jumbo shrimp, they were tasteless.
First fail, in my opinion, it’s that we got the house bread after we had the appetizer.
For dessert, we ordered Tartufo and what we got was clearly not Tartufo. Anyways, whatever it was, it was super was good.
The other person on my table ordered Linguini Pescatore al Cartoccio, his comments about the shrimp and some of the seafood in his plate were similar to mine.
Fantastic dining experience. Food was incredible. Service was great. Will definitely be back.
We ate here for the first time last night. It is on the river and sitting outside is best for a view. The inside is very small unless you sit by the bar area. The waiter was very nice and the food was very good. It felt very much "like old school Italian cooking." The Caesar salad to start was a very big portion and easily shared. I would return when the weather is a little cooler to eat here again.
Hidden gem! Great food, excellent staff and prices according to the food quality and level of service.
Food was ok
Don’t know which was better - food or ambience. Totally recommend a nice spot on the water, amazing flavors and great service. If you like true Italian - you won’t be disappointed!
My husband and I had dinner here for my birthday! Everything was amazing from the waterfront setting, to the food, and the service. We will definitely be back.
Always excellent. Burrata and meatball appetizers were a great start to the meal. Veal Scallapini was superb, as was the cod and the pasta special. Wait staff did not rush us through our meal, and were still wearing masks to be safe. Great experience.
We were disappointed that they didn’t honor our birthday celebration after mentioning in the reservation and to the hostess when we arrived.
The food & service was excellent. My current wife & I totally enjoyed our dinner . We will be back. 🖖
Great experience… don’t tell anyone … it will get crowded… no let’s share
If you are traveling and looking for that amazing hole in the wall this is the place. We were amazed by the staff and how they treated us but nothing compares to the food! The tartar was unbelievable and pork shank so tender it didn’t require a knife! If you are looking for that amazing date night spot look here and thank this review later!
Excellent food - friendly team, nice environment. Portion sizes are large. If i a negative our ankles got attacked by mosquitos but its Florida in the summer on the water - so not their fault but might want some spray.
for our Anniversary , I choose Serafina , looks nice on their Web,for a romantic dinner ,on the water with table clothes and fine dining ,none of this happen ,our narrow table for 2 was squeeze between tables,never had the waiter at our table ,too busy with other tablesssss ,only ask one if i like my dish, not waiting for answer , the servers was over loaded ,and we can feel the extreme stress and pressure in the air ,NOT RELAXING at all ,so sad we had our anniversary mess up ! .....
In the many years I have been a guest at Serafina's On The Water, their kitchen has never disappointed me.
Never a disappointment. The food is fabulous. Service, especially now is great.
Excellent food and ambiance
This is one of our favorite spots! It’s not real showy from the street but it is a little GEM once you make your way to the back... right on the inland waterway. The food is also Very Good!
Beautiful waterfront, great music and the food was the most delicious I’ve ever tasted, only complaint was the odd seating. I was sat directly in a walkway and felt very uncomfortable smelling everyone’s cologne or perfume because of how narrow, especially since I was sat next to my date, as opposed to directly in front. Still 5 stars though, would just mention not to be sat like that again. :)
Delicious food, unique atmosphere, the service could have been a little more attentive.
One review called this a "neighborhood gem" and I agree but this is definitely not the kind of neighborhood I'd expect to find a restaurant in. That said, the food was delicious. I had the carpaccio starter and then they made me veal piccata (they will fix your veal cutlet any way you want.) The bread was also delicious, nice and crusty. I ate outside, by the intracoastal waterway and enjoyed a nice breeze.
Excellent food and service. Some building improvements needed.
First time here and it did not disappoint. Had a great table by the water. The service was great. Tom and the entire staff was very attentive and friendly. We had the short rib special and it was delicious. Apps and the tiramisu for dessert were also very good. Can’t wait to go back!
Risotto was delicious. Staff was courteous. Will definitely return
Waitress brought out a dirty glass that had lipstick on it. Appetizer which was just clams took 45 mins to come out.
Serafina by the Water is an amazing restaurant across the board! The food was incredible, service was impeccable and ambiance was lovely! I highly recommend to anyone who wants an incredible Italian cuisine dining experience.
Great food. Hidden gem on the water with great food and service. Fresh pasta, great flavors and everything came out hot and quick. Book a reservation if you can
Divine food…. Beautiful ambiance… great service… try it!!!
Food is outstanding,everything from appetizers to our main courses!!
Our waitress MaryJane was awesome! Very attentive and so much fun!
Cannot wait to go back!!
Excellent food outdoors on the dock, where sailboats are moored. Beautiful ambience and great food. Great service. The place to go for a special occasion or when you want to give yourself a real treat.
This restaurant keeps getting better every year. The margaritas were exceptional, the dinner specials were cooked to perfection and as always the service was friendly and professional.
Delicious food, gracious, lovely service, beautiful setting on the water. We had an amazing dinner experience. Valet parking attendant was so kind especially to my 88 yr old mother.
One of the best restaurants in South Florida. Amazing food and service at this lovely hidden gem. We will be back again!
Gary was awesome food spectacular will definitely be back
It was the best Italian food I’ve ever had! Great service and love the view!
Went here for my birthday and had the most delicious dinner. The staff is always great, the specials are even better. We had a wide array of options on the table with an incredible wine selection. I’ve been here numerous times and will continue to return.
The food was delicious. They have a small inside area but large outside area on the water. Had a very enjoyable time there. Will go back!
Staff genuinely happy
Helpful and knowledgeable
