It took 10 minutes to be welcomed after being seated at our table. We got up from the table to ask for a other round of drinks 3 Times. The staff seemed to be more interested in chatting in the stairwell than waiting on the tables. The food was room temp when it hit the table. I don’t like cold Salmon Benedict. We will not be returning, and if anyone asks... we will tell them to dine elsewhere. The job of a waiter is make sure that the dining experience is at the very least pleasant. The staff couldn’t even meet this minimum.

Both times I've been to this restaurant I've been sat upstairs. It's pretty private and great if you have a loud party, not so great if you want to people watch. Food is always really good, and their wine list is great too (good mix of California and Italy).

Food was good, but I’ve been to other locations in which the service was much better. Not sure if it was because it was an early Sunday dinner, but the staff wasn’t that engaged.

Went there as soon as they opened @ 1130am to eat the lemon ricotta pancakes and was extremely disappointed that it was not available. Instead, Restaurant gave us a tiramisu to make up for our disappointment. The tiramisu was excellent.

Absolutely horrendous service. Do NOT go here. We were rushed in and out, they never took our drink orders, I had to find the waiter multiple times and still was not sure if there even was a designated waiter for us, the food came out before water or even drinks. When my cocktail came out the waiter spilled half of it on the table and didn't say anything, just avoid this place at all costs.

I was disappointed in this restaurant. The service was pretty lousy. I had to ask for bread with our meal. The waiter brought out bread with oil. Then I had to ask for plates so we could put our bread on something. The waiter brought out 1 plate. We put the oil on the plate but had no plates for the bread. The food was just ok and the portions are small. There are plenty of restaurants in NY go somewhere else.

I made a reservation for Serafina since we were visiting the Highline. It's very close & in a cool area! The restaurant wasn't as loud as some other ones that we had passed and I loved the actual restaurant itself. I had the filet which was amazing. It came with a peppercorn sauce that I could have drank. For dessert we shared the tiramisu which was a bit dry and not very flavorful. All in all, a great place!

I had the pizza with the goat cheese and it was delicious. Being as fussy as I am with pizza, it is not easy for me to give a good review but Serafina deserves a thumps up for their pizza. It is a great place to sit outside, have a cocktail and meal with friends, after you finish walking the High Line. Some of the places directly after the High Line are crowded. This was perfect for us and we enjoying the atmosphere of casual dining in NYC.

I had the extremely unfortunate experience of dining at this very low value restaurant. My steak reminded me of what I burn on my BBQ grill. They could not make margaritas and had to send it back. A soda came out warm with one ice cube. So, the food was terrible, the drinks were warm including the beer, and it was insanely expensive for what we received. I do not recommend this place. to anyone. BAD EXPERIENCE!!!!

We started w/meatballs appetizer which was very good. I had the Gorgonzola burger which wasn't that good. Others had the pasta w/peas, chicken in a touch of cream (heavy touch) that was dry. Lastly pasta pomodora which was ok. Fresh bread was good. The price was good but being an Italian cook I wouldn't go back. Also very limited alcohol choices.

After visiting the Whitney Museum, we were looking for something nearby. The menu for this place looked appealing on open table, so we booked a spot. We were greatly warmly by the hostess, and our service was prompt and friendly. The food was really terrific - better than we even expected. My farfalle with limoncello sauce and shrimp was unique and delicious - I'd go back there just to have it again. Only one mild complaint - the pizza (huge for a personal size and quite tasty) arrived a luke warm. If it had arrived piping hot this would be an unqualified rave!

I used to love Serafina and absolutely recommend it very often. Monday, July 24th booked a very special dinner with my boss. They messed up 3 out of the 6 dishes. Half the table was sitting waiting for the others to now get their pasta remade. They added " anchovies to a regular spaghetti pomodoro". We ordered a second bottle of wine and waited about 20 minutes for it. By the time the wine came we were practically done with dinner. Asked for the waiter and he completely blamed it on the kitchen, which may have been the reason, but no service recovery at all. Infact, we got the bill and they added a 20 percent automatic gratuity. All the diners work in hospitality and it was the most terrible experience. Finally complained to the waiter and he took off one of the dishes. Even before, the hostess was not very friendly and made us wait about 10 minutes before sitting us and the whole restaurant was practically empty at that time.
I used to send everyone to Serafina and now I am scared to send any clients or refer people where they completely ruined the experience for us.

Serafina took our group of 9 on a moments notice after a disastrous reservation snafu at nearby STK Downtown (hint: don't go there unless you want to sit at a table without your fellow diners on your lap).


The team there put us on the second floor dining room which was an awesome space. We started with burratta (delicious) and a pasta course, and everyone enjoyed their mains, the wine, and the service.

Delicious mushroom ravioli, great service and a reasonably priced wine list. I was in town on business and had dinner with a friend so not from NYC. Not used to eating out on the sidewalk so it was weird at first but the weather was nice so it ended up being very enjoyable.
