Serafina continues to deliver quality food and excellent service. This UWS location, however, has raised its prices to a surprising (and unreasonable) amount. The same dishes either further uptown or midtown are less expensive. Still a great meal.

The three of us had lunch at Seraphina on a Sunday afternoon. We sat at a large booth in the back of the restaurant next to the windows. We had two different salads and a pasta dish. All delicious, well prepared and presented. The service is exceptional. Pleasant and accommodating. This location on W77th Street is a well run establishment. I recommend it highly.

We went back to Serafina’s for dinner again this week. The service, food and ambiance are all excellent. My Salmon was cooked exactly as ordered and came with a delicious sauce and artichokes. My husband had the meatballs and then a pizza which he claimed were scrumptious. We sat at a roomy booth which added to our enjoyment. We highly recommend Serafina’s!

We can always count on the pizza here! And the Di Sofia(caesar) salad is always good - especially with some perfectly cooked salmon. The fries are also good though they could be a little crispier.
Our only complaints were that we had to ask for ketchup 3 times and our table was wobbly and they said they would fix and no one ever did.
The flowers in the outdoor setting and open windows are perfect.

Have been wanting to try this place forever and finally did. Service was great. We had the salmon which was very good, the eggplant parmigiana, which was also good (the portion was small), but the highlight was the spaghetti squash with vegetables on marinara. It was delicious and the presentation was beautiful. It was a bit noisy, but mainly it was because the table near us had two young children whose mother and nanny forgot that they were in a public space and not their own personal playground. All in all it was great. Can’t wait to go back.

Came to this restaurant late last night for a 9:30 reservation. It took 15 minutes for a server to come around and when he did he said the kitchen was closing soon so we needed to order. Well if you would of greeted us 15 minutes before we woulda had more time. They didn’t take a drink order and when I asked for a bottle she just stared at me. I work at a high end restaurant in the city, and even Di I’m not happy to do a 9:15-9:30 reservation I still give the same friendly service. This was unprofessional to me and we felt very rushed out. They weren’t friendly and appeared ready to go when we started our meal. So it wasn’t very fun. Food was good though.

The service at Serafina was outstanding! Our server was attentive and lively. The food was tasty; I enjoyed the Chicken Parm and my guest enjoyed the Cacio E Pepe. The drinks were strong, I would recommend the red Sangria. The atmosphere and vibe was perfect. I will be returning soon as this is a great restaurant for date night and amazing food.

We love the pizza! The kids pizza is quite big, but my son ate every bite, even the crust! The Brussels sprouts salad is my favorite salad. The pasta dishes we’ve tried have been more than enough food and very good. The fish is fresh and delicious!

some dishes executed OK, others, like the carbonara, not good at all. Too pricy for what you get. Service also a bit poor for us while others looked well taken care of. Nice atmosphere and if you don't mind paying a bit more, a good choice. You can get better food at lower prices elsewhere.

The waiter was inattentive. When the bill came ($450.00) for six people he said that the tip was included. Was this mandatory gratuity the reason that he didn't pay much attention to us? Did he feel that he didn't need to in order to get his tip? Whatever, we will not be returning soon.
