Serafina Restaurant Group was conceived when Vittorio Assaf and Fabio Granato made a pact while traumatically lost at sea. The two friends agreed to open a restaurant serving the best pizza and pasta in the world if they were to survive the ordeal. In 1995, they fulfilled their promise by launching the highly acclaimed Serafina Fabulous Pizza. Following the success of their first location, they have gone on to open numerous locations worldwide!

In 2008, they opened Brasserie Cognac in the Theater District where Chef Florian V. Hugo, a great-great-great grandson of poet Victor Hugo, serves fine French cuisine. Vittorio and Fabio energetically guarantee comfort, excitement and fabulous food at every location!

A very disappointing experience. Food was really mediocre. Service was a mess. Too many issues to reiterate. Can't recommend and won't be returning.

Bland, overpriced food in an atmosphere that could be cozy and elegant ish (which I expected for the price point) but there was a huge television overhead playing sports. Wouldn’t return.

We went to Serafina with a group of 7 people, including a baby. The service was great: the baby was entertained with crayons and something to draw on, the food came out really quickly and was delicious and we staff took care of all of our special requests. I can highly recommend the Lobster Ravioli! It was the most perfect al dente ravioli.

This could wind up being a go to restaurant. The food was decent the service was attentive enough. Decor and ambiance were very pleasant especially since they opened the windows to the outside. One bathroom for the whole place didn't quite cut it.

We were amazed that the manager (who is the mother of the owner) let a dog into the restaurant. The dog was sitting under a bar stool and the owner on top chatting with a friend. I understand if people want to bring a dog and sit outside, but this was unheard of. We are allergic to animals and would never have been there otherwise. The manager said that it was a "comfort" dog (not even a seeing eye dog, etc.) and that they are allowed inside.

This, along with animals on the airlines, has really gone too far!

We love Serafina, but the service, ESPECIALLY at brunch, is not good. When we got there only 1 waiter was on duty, and the bartender helped out. The manager was sitting on the side on her cell phone - should have been helping out where she could.

Server got our order wrong and when it came out he said “the kitchen must have been really busy”. Didn’t apologize, didn’t over to bring our the correct order. Just rude. Bland food and bland service.

Unremarkable eggs Benedict for brunch. In toasted English muffin, bland hollandaise, measly spinach. Potatoes good. But for the price go elsewhere

It was clean, they honored our reservation and were polite. However we had to ask the busboys three times to stop removing the plates before we were done. That drives me insane. The manager must be beating them, but there were empty tables so we couldn't figure out the mad rush. For mediocre food at that price, it should at least be relaxed.

Last time we were there, service was lacking due to shortage of staff. The host did remember us and our dinner went very well with extra attention:))

Went for brunch. The ambience was basic but fine, and food was good but nothing really special, my biggest complains is it’s overpriced. The worst value: a $14 piece of avocado toast was a single slice of bread with smashed avocado and a tiny pile of greens.

On a recent quiet Tuesday evening I went to Serafina with a friend. Our reservation was for 7:30 PM and we really didn't need to do it. The interior is smaller than I thought it would be. The food and service were fine. BUT, the noise level at the bar was incredible. The loud voices spilled into every part of the restaurant and ruined my dining experience. The bar drinkers stood and had amazingly loud conversations. We sat just a few feet away. I found the behavior boorish and highly inconsiderate. I will not patronize Serafina under these circumstances.

The food wasn't spectacular by any means but it wasn't bad. It was pretty much adequate. Reasonably priced so no complaints. The setting was nice though and our server (forgot her name) was stellar.
