Serafina by The Water
As always, the dinner was exquisite. The food, the service and the ambiance never fail us.
By far the best of 15 meals we had during our five days in Ft. Lauderdale. Outstanding Fettucini Al Fredo and Lamb Osso Buco! Despite the unimposing facade in a rather downtrodden neighborhood, this restaurant is right on a dock on the intracoastal. A cozy and romantic setting for a great meal. Don't miss it!
What can I say - great service and great food..we are a repeat customer and love this place
Outstanding italian food. Flavors boast, presentation, taste.
So far the best i have had in florida south areas. Fort Lauderdale to Boca Raton
Great place,food is good,location is awesome ,service was good
The cuisine is consistently good. I have never been disappointed in either the standard menu items, nor the specials. So far, the best Italian cuisine in the area.
The food and service was fantastic. We had the lobster ravioli, cheese/spinach ravioli, veal marsala and bolognese. The bread was piping hot and so fresh. All sauces were outstanding. Our server team was extremely attentive and we all enjoyed sitting on the covered porch.
This restaurant would be a reason I would come back to Fort Lauderdale! Absolutely delicious food, authentic Italian, homemade sauces, we had wonderful apps from artichokes and eggplant and then amazing pasta and risotto dishes. Truly a great find! Our server was so friendly and sweet. Make sure you come here for dinner!
Very cute place hidden off the beaten path. Service was on point. Food very good. Meatballs were amazing, and we are meatball lovers!
Perfect romantic place with a great food and nice atmosphere and great staff
Wow, this was a great find and the staff is SS wonderful as the food. I could not say enough great things about it. We will be back next time we are in town. Thanks
We love Serafina! Food was fantastic! And service was A+ as usual!
I have been wanting to try this restaurant for years & am so happy that I finally did. Everything was amazing from the service to the food to the beautiful and delicious surprise desert. We are definitely going back soon!
Delicious.... great food.
I had the most incredible seafood pasta! Great little spot, great value and great service!
The food wasn’t good than the last time I was there
Disappointed with the limited menu for Valentine’s Day. Wish I knew! Absolutely love their food.
Great spot with great food. Good date night spot! Nice view. Outside seating.
My wife and I had an early reservation and arrived while the restaurant was about 25% full. The hostess tried to sit us at a two-top cornered up to an awning post outside. Great view of the water and docked boats, but the post was a little distracting. I asked if we could switch to another table and the hostess directed us to other two-tops. Seemed odd when some of the four tops close to the water hadn’t been filled until we almost left.
Food was average. Meatball appetizer was a little red in the middle. Angel Hair Fra Diablo was meh. Lasagna and the bread that comes to the table were pretty good. I do wish they had more wine options by the glass.
Excellent. Highly recommend!
The atmosphere was amazing with a cool breeze blowing. The food was great and the service was good.
The food was simply incredible. As a SoBe resident with many restaurants in our neighborhood, I can tell you the this place blew us away. The staff and food were amazing! Go and give yourself a treat to some top notch Italian food. Both the seafood and pasta were excellent. Imagine getting this quality meal and discovering when you get the bill that not only was it delicious, but reasonable in price too!
Everything from the service (our waiter was phenomenal and the way he described food is an art and passion and just gets you so hungry) to the food to the atmosphere to the amazing full moon and music it was a perfect evening. We love Serafina and love that it is in our neighborhood of Victoria Park. The only issue this time was we all had our leftovers boxed up and unfortunately the bus boy accidentally threw them away :-(
Horrible ambience for a Saturday nigh and definitely there’s no water view on the patio!
Great place. The service was terrific. I loved sitting on the deck overlooking the yachts. Two things though, the front of the restaurant leaves a lot to be desired. Also, the receptionist (young blonde female) was not welcoming. The first thing she said when my Wife entered was, "do you have a reservation" not Hi, welcome, how are you? The hostess is literally the initial connection with the patron. She needs to be more welcoming otherwise a great place!
Vacation beautiful table by the boats excellent food
We done there often and this one waiter constantly messes up the dinners. I don’t know how much more I can take. It’s the second time in a two weeks that he has completely messed up the order.
Excellent. First time. Will be back!
Very nice setting by the water, actually a yacht parking lot. For the price, the seafood should not have been overcooked.
Great service, dockside. Our waiter made the experience special. Our dinner was delicious.
We had to wait a bit. They were apologetic, but we still had to wait. It’s a nice ambiance by the water, with good food and generous portions.
Would not go back.
The Young man serving bread, etc. Was very rude.
Server was mediocre. Food was not horrible but not great. Overrated! We were 2 women and did not get the service that other tables received.
Food was just ok. Lady's restroom was filthy and if you're going to have an open kitchen, keep it clean!
A must place to go when visiting Fort Lauderdale. Authentic Italian on the water
Great food and service! Very romantic!
The grilled octopus appetizer was amazing
While the service was very good, the price of the meal was not. The food was good but not exceptional which is expected at a high cost restaurant.
the waiter was extremely annoying and the food was just mediocre The restaurant was a bit rundown
You would not expect the ambiance from the outside. Cute and cozy little restaurant by the water. The entire staff was super welcoming and friendly. We celebrated my sisters birthday here on Monday night and it was fabulous! The food and wine selection was divine. Definitely going again!
