If out shopping at St. Clair Mall and looking for a place to grab a great meal, pay a visit to Serafini. Right in the heart of downtown Frankfort, this restaurant is the perfect spot for a date night, dinner with friends, or to even host an event in the private party space.
Chef Tim McGowan uses fresh locally grown ingredients to create the menu at Serafini. The dishes here combine traditional Italian cuisine with down home Southern Kentucky cooking. Appetizers include choices like bruschetta or pimento cheese wontons. Grilled Berkshire pork chop and Risotto del Giorno are just two of the entrees from which to choose. No meal in Kentucky is complete with some Bourbon and Serafini has an extensive list from which to choose.
Fried green tomatoes were great
I love this restaurant. They are always glad to see their customers and the atmosphere is always great!
Very good, chef inspired food. Surroundings are very nice, staff is great. Probably my girlfriends favorite place to eat, we go on special occasions. Not cheap, you will pay a lot more than going to some chain place like Appleby's, but then again you get a WHOLE heck of a lot more, plus you won't find food like it anywhere else around the Frankfort area. I highly recommend it.
Very nice ambiance. Food was very good, but service was slow.
Great food, wonderful server. He was very attentive and recommended things all night. My husband and I enjoyed almost everything. It was a little awkward how close to the front door and to the table to the right of us was. The couple at the table beside us seemed to know everyone so it was pretty loud most of the time. But besides that we enjoyed all the food and service.
On a not very crowded night, we waited more than ten minutes to even be approached by a waiter. The food was so-so.
The steak was dry.
The appetizers and desserts were acceptable, but not great.
These prices should be accompanied by great food and service.
Serafini is the gem of Frankfort and you will not be disappointed by your first or fiftieth visit.
I was disappointed with my dining experience. The food was mediocre. The table was right by the bar and the kitchen. There was a reception which made the noise level extremely loud. People at the bar hovered close to the table. It was the worst seat in the restaurant! The waiter was very pleasant.
Excellent service from a friendly and knowledgeable Carlos. The food was delicious!
Excellent waiter. Pleasant, appropriate. Drinks delivered promptly. Attentive without being obtrusive. Great night out on NYE.
We picked Serafini as a halfway point between Louisville and Lexington to meet friends for New Years Eve. Having never been there, we were more than pleasantly surprised. From start to finish, the meal was one of the best we have enjoyed in a long time. Will return, definitely!
Serafini is a good location in a part of downtown Frankfort, Kentucky that has experienced some rejuvenation over the past few years but is still a work in progress. The restaurant has a nice ambiance and appears to be a good place for group or professional dining. The food was good, but not as good as other restaurants of the same price range. As is my custom, I had the lasagna, which is a good test dish for a restaurant that claims "Italian" food. The lasagna was creamy with a nice ricotta sweetness, although the sauce was also sweet, the cheese under melted. I thought the dish could have used a touch more garlic, a bit more acidic tomato, and a stronger dose of oregano to balance the ricotta. Other members of my party had beef dishes, which were cooked a little over, but otherwise very good flavors and sauces. I would recommend Serafini's to anyone spending time in Frankfort after a bourbon distillery tour or a day at the Kentucky Horse Park.
We enjoyed a delicious meal - had great service and they have an extensive bourbon collection. The gnocchi was excellent.
Serafina is a great spot for a business dinner. The staff is very attentive without hovering and the menu offers something for everyone.
First time at Serafinis and will definitely return next time I'm in Frankfort. Had the hot brown and loved the addition of prosciutto place of country ham. Everyone's food in our group was great. Charming location in the heart of town.
