Dinner was delicious! The bartender did spill my lemon cooler on the table and my husband but they quickly cleaned up and apologized. I got the spaghetti ala vongelle it was superb!

We where visiting NYC after 1 1/2 year of not visiting. This time was special because my two sons where traveling with me and my husband!!! We aleays love to visit Serafina but the one in MeatPacking distric. We are not local and our first language is not english, but we consider that we have a good english. Food exellence as always but our server Mario disn't make our experience nice. He was sarcastic, rude and was making funnof our accent.

Overall I will come back regardless this situation.

If you are looking for the prototypical Italian impatience and rush rush, this is your place. Outdoor rat added to the ambience, but the hostess and waiter were stresses mindless. Two wines and a beer that were on the menu were not available. Our second glass of wine came along with our check as they were short on glasses… ridiculous.

We had a birthday dinner and had made an 8 pm reservation. After waiting a while to be seated, we got outdoor seating which was lovely. The servers were a bit distracted and took a while for things to get to us but once they did, food was delicious!

We all really loved the food but had to make several requests for items like bread and butter before they would be brought to the table--even thought they were not busy. We sat outside, which was nice--and I think each of us (6) would return for what turned out to be wonderful meals.

Great customer service from everybody , but it was painful sitting outside in their temporary patios . We all froze our butts off . Wish they had better heaters for cold New York nights .

Went here for a date night and had a great experience - we got the spicy penne alla vodka and D.O.C margherita to split, and both were great. Cocktails also very good. We sat outside and had fun people watching.

Serafina in every location is always a complete pleasure. This was my first experience in the Meatpacking District and it held up the excellent Serafina reputation: hospitable and caring service, delicious menu, terrific environment. It was a terrific visit and I’m grateful to the Meatpacking location’s wonderful team. Don’t hesitate: go enjoy now and often!

The outdoor seating was done well, our table was set within a covered and semi enclosed area, with decorative greens surrounding the table. We felt comfortable with the heaters provided. The food on the other hand was average at best. Most of us had various pasta dishes, with the exception of one, having pizza. The food came to the table rather quickly and the servers seemed very rushed. The prices were out of range for the quality of the dishes. We were all hoping to enjoy the experience more than we did.

Usually love serafina, but Service very poor, food very salty, and overall not worth the money. Beware of a 10% covid surcharge

Serafina time & time again is pretty damn bad. Once in a while, the food can be good for sure, but that's like 1/5 times. 4/5 times, the food will be very mediocre and the service bad.

Pizza was runny (not cooked enough). Wait staff mostly uninterested in our needs, no one asked or cared how our meal was. Very LOUD on the upper level. Small children kicking bottom of wooden booth, where they were seated (poor design). Restaurant manager, very accommodating.
