The food is consitently good. The wine was not chilled. Service was not great as the bread basket came out at the same time as out entrees.

We are here a few times a year. We thought this was one of our best meals here. While there was a mishap with a drink spill, the staff were gracious and desserts on the house. Overall enjoyable and we will return.

We had the worst experience. We waited over one hour for our meal. The waiter finally said one of us ordered a special that takes a long time to make which no one ever mentioned to us. Then 2 of us ordered sea bass and woke up with stomach aches the next day.
Horrible place.

We were meeting friends that we hadn't seen in a long time and the waiter was great in giving us the right amount of time to talk and yet, was accomodating and available for questions and ordering. .The atmosphere is comfortable yet fun and feels like a vibrant part of the White Plains life! Three of us actually shared an arugula salad with shaved parmesan which was excellent and I had a well prepared delicious salmon which was excellent and came exactly how i ordered it with the sauce on the side. Two of the men at the table had the risotto with seafood which was the special and they said it was to die for! We were very impressed with the high level of service we received the whole evening and we would definitely come back here! Fun and comfortable vibe!

 (Las Vegas)·Dined on March 3, 2017

Seven of us went out here for a dinner and we enjoyed it but it's nothing worth the price. $19 for pizza or $16 for a salad that was not amazing yet not bad seems a little pricey. The Gnocchi however, are worth every penny. The music was different . Club / techno music at a high level was being played which does not fit the scene .

Made us order appetizers and dinner together so we couldn't pause between meals. Even though it seemed like a light night (crowd wise.) Food was good and I had a great time just thought it was weird having to order only once.

Excellent choice -- Christmas dinner for 8, including 2 grade-school boys. Serafina served their full menu, including filet mignon, which was not listed that evening on the menu. The shrimp in cognac sauce with risotto was delicious. Desserts were excellent, particularly the berry tart. Service was excellent. We did not have wine, primarily because each glass is $12 or more. It was very cold outside, and the three seated with their backs to the windows were shivering part-way through the meal, necessitating the wearing of coats.

Had a business lunch at this establishment. It was a perfect setting, with a relaxed atmosphere, good service and ok food. The apps were tasty, we had tartare and avocado and baby shrimp. I had branzino for main and it was well cooked. The service was prompt but not in your face. Overall a very pleasant experience

Went to serafina for Father's Day. The employees were very nice and took care of us very well. The food was excellent. My only issue was the soda. There are no free refills and the soda they give you is in a small glass so that makes you order more soda because you drink it very fast. Besides that everything else was good.

Made reservations for Mother's Day brunch and was disappointed when the manager called us the day before to inform that brunch would not be served, but rather it would be the regular lunch menu. This was our first time at the restaurant and I was skeptical of anything other than the brunch after reading mixed reviews.

However, my entire family was pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious and service was prompt even though the place was packed. Recommendations: fried calamari, cognac shrimp and any pizzas.

We went as a group of 9 for dinner. We had to hunt down the waiters to fund anyone to give our order. Poor service continues through out the dinner. This was in spite of being a Tuesday and despite a reservation. Will not go back there again and will not recommend to others.

Go now to Serafina and try the Vegetarian Platter (spaghetti squash dish). The meal was fabulous and the presentation was beautiful. The other meals at the table included fish and pasta-I'm told also delicious. We were there for lunch. Service was fast and courteous. Well priced, portions just right. I am looking forward to going back.

Love every NYC Serafina. They should close this one ! Anyone eating here is guaranteed to avoid any Serafina restaurant. Diabolical service. Staff left to their own devices as there is no manager present, they probably went out to eat! Tuna burger, ordered medium was raw. Pizza looked and tasted like a frozen pizza. Ignored by staff who were nowhere to be found most of the evening in a pretty deserted dining room. Save your money
