The food was on point and phenomenal! The Staff was extremely friendly and accommodating, our waitress Becka was fabulous and payed attention to the details. A must try!
A flawless experience, starting with the service, then the food, and the setting on the water. Quiet music in the background and very attentive servers. Top quality food. Highly recommended!
Everything was great! Service from Nicolas, drinks sublime. Food delicious, loved the special octopus and calamari appetizer. Perfectly grilled! Pasta special with jumbo shrimp, shaved black truffles wonderful. Drinks a little pricey, but very generous pour. Becoming our go to restaurant especially dining outside on water during our winter!
The food was excellent. We had a nice table by the water. Would definitely go back.
Excellent food and service. Highly recommend.
Absolutely charming neighborhood gem. Wonderful food. Lovely patio for dining right on the water.
Delicious food and great atmosphere.
Outdoor sitting was nice but service is not that good, waitress are not friendly, they seem all the time to be in a rush. Food is ok, we had a good time but service in general was mediocre.
Exceptional service. Everything was perfect!
Food and ambience are great at this intimate waterfront restaurant. The only recommendation to the owners, get some more Scotch options as the drink menu is mostly wines.
The waiter was amazing and the food was fresh abd tasty . One of our favorites in Fort Lauderdale . We will definitely be back .
Consistently great food and service. The ambiance completes a fabulous dining experience.
This is the definition of a neighborhood gem in the heart of Ft. Lauderdale but you fell,like you could be in Portofino, Italy! Amazing views, great service, excellent food!!!
We had a beautiful Sunday brunch on the water with out of town friends. The seafood bruschetta, anti pasta and frittata were all delicious! And our service was impeccable. I highly recommend Serafina by the Water.
AmAIng food and service as usual! We’ll we back.
Dinner was delicious and our server (Mary Jane) extremely personable and professional. I will be going back for sure!
This restaurant is outstanding, from the excellent selection of food, the quality of the food, the attentive service and, for outside diners, the nice view of the waterway. We had the combination grilled octopus/calamari as an appetizer special, followed by a fantastic snapper entree. Dessert of tiramisu rounded out the excellent evening. Highly recommended.
Amazing place! Joe was the best server I’ve ever had. Amazing food. Quality all around.
The food was delicious. We enjoyed sitting on the water and the service was excellent.
Three of us ate at Serafina near the waterway and we had a great view and three very good dinners. Everything was low key in a very relaxed atmosphere. We'd highly recommend it.
Everything was excellent all the way through. Food presentation and delivery were on point. The selection of food and appetizers made final decision difficult. So many great choices. Only disappointment was the tiramisu . It had no flavor despite being baked in house. Our server Mary Jane did a great job on a busy night.
I love the music as well
Every time we are in Fl we make it a point to dine at Serafina. The food is excellent and the staff outstanding. Highly recommend it.
Great find. Dinner for four on the water? No problem. Service? OUTSTANDING. Food? Delicious. We each had something different. Oso Buco, Veal Chop, Snapper and Chicken Milanese. To make it even better, for me at least, they made their greyhounds with PINK grapefruit juice. Almost as good as the food. We will be back next week with different friends.
Service was perfect and the food was delicious.
Surprisingly good food. We had a lobster Franchrse special that was very well prepared. We also tried the special appetizer of zucchini flowers stuffed with cheese, which was not as successful as the lobster. The restaurant is located directly on a dock which allows a view of the river, although it is not spectacular as some of the restaurants close to the beach/ocean. The area is cramped and busy, but worth the effort given the quality of the food.
Serafina has it all! Good Food, Great Ambiance (outside on the water,) and meets all current safety requirements with appropriate social distancing of tables, masking by staff, etc. This is our go to location for special occaision dinners.
Great Xmas music to add to the ambience!
I Can’t say enough about this place. Always great and xmas eve dinner was no exception.
I’d give them 10 stars if I could
Always a treat to dine at Serafina by the Water. Great service, and amazing food. One of my faves.
This is such a charming place. And such a refreshing option compared to the corporate restaurants.
I had the Italian frittata that was sp delicious served with sauted spinach.
Great italian Seafood. Well served in a wonderful restaurant setting.
Consistently excellent food and service. Well worth the money.
First time but surely not the last. The location at first was misleading because you don’t see the restaurant until you walk through a corridor. Really cute once you go inside :) Food and service top notch!
Always good ..pandemic or not. Social distancing was respected. Masks were worn. Food and service was excellent.
Wonderful place (always is). The grilled octopus is fantastic and perfectly done. Generous portions and very good service. Great place for family gathering and outdoor eating.
Service was great and food exceptional. Loved the osso bucco on the mushroom risotto! Manhattan was generous and perfectly prepared also!
Amazing food - the Osso Buco was unbelievable along with the positano fish dish. They always have amazing new specials. I haven't gotten a bad dish from here. The martinis are STRONG. Try to get there early so you can sit outside by the water.
Some things good,some bad.Very bad olive oil,acid peppers.Some bread heated some not.Good main courses,good wine list and coffe
Everything was delicious. Service was excellent. We'll be back.
