Serafina has always been one of my favorite restaurants! The food is always prepared fresh and delicious and has been consistent for years!!!! The manager was amazing and sent us a round of Moscato because it was a birthday dinner! Thank you so much!

We had a delightful outdoor lunch. Serafina Broadway has always had outdoor space. I had the spaghetti squash. It's such a treat because it is so rarely on any menu. My friend had the orchiette and sausage and loved it. The service was impeccable. What a wonderful experience in this time of trouble.

Outdoor dining only. The area set-up is very nice and you feel secure. Good social distancing. We both had the chicken Parm-Excellent and serving large enough for a second meal. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Will be back.

Went to serafina with my husband and 3 children to celebrate my daughters 11th birthday and sons 6th birthday. For appetizers we ordered the calamari. literally to die for ! Calamari was fresh and tasty ! for dinner my son ordered the margarita pizza, very tasty too much for my 6 yr old but an adult could easily finish it alone. My daughter ordered the chicken Alfredo. Her food was tasty but a bit on the fresh side. My husband ordered the Bronzino fish, the fish was cooked to perfection. I ordered the lobster bisque ravioli. Ravioli was also a hit ! For drinks my husband I both ordered casa Migos tequila margaritas. drinks were very weak. Overall I enjoyed my dinner so did my family we will return.

Birthday.
This is my fourth experience in this place. I had. Huge expectation!! But... well, it was ok.
The food was great!! The service was not that good.
Because of the pandemic, dining is out, which is ok. It wasn’t busy, because it was lunch time, but I was put in the worst place. Literally in the middle of the sidewalk, so everyone was walking around and staring to my plate. It’d be courteous if I could stay in a different place, on the parking space because it is more private and it’s covered. It was empty, but they couldn’t care less about it. Overall, the portion was not that big, but the taste.... excellent. Too bad that the service was not great, otherwise would get 5 stars. Coming back again, we’ll see...

My experience this time was not as great as the many other times I have visited this chain. The food took forever to come out and honestly was subpar. Although we did get seated immediately on arrival and our server was tentative. Just felt a bit unorganized and rushed.

Overall very good but my main dish which was a special (sea bass) was poor. They had shrimps on it which were cold. The sea bass was not good. The other 3 main dishes were all good. The service/waiter was very good as was ambience. If my dinner was good, I would rate it as 4/5 in very good category.

My mother and I visit NYC every March and have never had better food or customer services than we had here. Everything is more expensive in nyc but I paid the same amount for an appetizer, 2 entrees, 2 teas, and a shared dessert .. than I would for a simple meal anywhere else in Time Square. My mom got the steak and I got a pasta dish and we both walked out saying it was the best food we have ever had.

We went for brunch on a Sunday. The food was not good. The eggs were overcooked, the Eggs Benedict was tasteless, there were about 5 potatoes on the plate and they were tasteless too and there was no toast available. Plus, it was prix fixe so very expensive for what we got. Very disappointing.

We arrived about a half hour early for our reservation. We ordered a drink at the bar and within about 15 minutes our table was ready. Wait staff was excellent and the food served perfectly. I would highly recommend to a friend.

Do not go to Serafina if you are gluten-free. It is almost impossible to choose from their menu and there was very little guidance from waiter. My daughter actually couldn’t have dinner because of the lack
Of interest in providing a safe gluten-free choice.

the food as always excellent, our waiter was very inattentive I would say impolite, a table with people shouting loudly and laughing. I left the restaurant with a headache. It was not my first visit to this restaurant but it will certainly be the last.

Wanted to try Serafina Broadway as I dined at the one in the Time Hotel.

Ugh...awful food (compared to the one at the Time).

Artichoke salad was like cole slaw. (Don't even think that it was made the same day.)

The tuna was flat, bland and very small.

The "mashed potatoes" had to be from a mix (all watery and no taste).

This is a no-go for me for future reservations.
