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.

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.

We enjoyed our last brunch before the coronavirus subsequently shut down the city. Service was excellent, careful and protective. As were we. Food was wonderful. And we said good buy to the way of life we knew and loved.

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.

Extremely disappointing, the food (salad and pasta) was mediocre, and portions minuscule.
I asked our waiter which salad was more copious (that was all I was planning on having), he basically made me understand that none was. He was right. My salad (kale, brussels sprouts, parmesan and candied walnut nuts) was very small for a dish not supposed to be a side dish or an appetizer in fact my husbands' order of lentils - a side dish - was larger): there was at most 1 brussels sprout shredded and barely noticeable, and I found exactly 4 walnuts in the salad.
The waiter came to ask if we were enjoying our meal, I told him the salad was sub-par (small portion, very blah).
We then ordered dessert: the chocolate sensation (described as having 7 layers). It was not at all as described, barely any chocolate flavor with only 3 layers, one of which looked like vanilla mousse.
Very deceitful description for chocolate lovers.

It was not a busy night, I would have expected the manager to come over - no such thing happened.

Five of us for brunch last Saturday and I couldn’t have picked a better place for us. The food was wonderful - definitely try the pizza on the brunch menu! The staff was incredibly efficient and friendly. Most definitely worth the price and most definitely going back!

Everything about the restaurant was quite good except they put a mom with two screaming kids on the same floor as a few business lunch groups. I'm not sure why they did that as I thought for sure they would have put them on another floor. They may have been "regulars" as the waitress seemed to know them. In which case, they should certainly know better.
I would recommend this restaurant, but maybe make a request for an area so you can have a business lunch conversation. I failed to do so and paid the price.

The host who was apparently the manager was EXTREMELY rude. We had a reservation for 9 people which I had called a few days earlier to confirm and she had told us that it was booked under 8 and that now we would have to wait and that it would be “tight” as she proceeded to roll her eyes. I can’t believe she is the manager. Once we were seated we were next to a large party that were all clearly wasted. I felt like I was at a sports bar and the super bowl was playing..... we will NEVER be coming back. The only positive part was our waiter, Luis. He was amazing and very accommodating.

We shared the fried brussels sprouts as an appetizer and they were quite delicious.
We then had different pastas dishes that were all consistently tasty, cooked to perfection and in generous portions, perfect for a main dish. I would definitely go back and recommend to friends and family.
