Good food, The Pizza is always very good as is their filet mignon burger which comes with carmaleized oniouns and a very good cheese (I forgot the name of it). Another nice choice is the gold's gym salad as well as the grilled octopus which is served on skewers

You should go to this place if you don't like good service, want to be scammed, and love spending the whole night hugging your toilet bowl and looking at what your food is like after you ate it.
We went to Serafina Broadway last week after a wonderful concert in Carnegie Hall. It was pretty late and cold, so our choice of the restaurant was dictated by the time it closed and the proximity to Carnegie Hall. Given that the place looks like a strip club (with portraits of half naked women and red lights on walls) on the inside, I probably wouldn't have gone there normally.
Well, we were not looking for a nice atmosphere at that time, but for some nice food. The menu looked good, with a few seafood dishes at a decent price. I got a seafood pasta which was their special that day. It was all right although some of the clams tasted kind of strange... My friend's portion of pesto pasta was kind of small.
After asking for the check, we first payed without looking carefully. We decided to pay with cash and left the amount including the tip so as not to wait for change. And then I decided to double check because it seemed a bit high...
It turned out that the tip was already included in the check, 17%, for a table of three... The waiter never told us.
But the experience with this restaurant unfortunately wasn't over with that. Two hours after our visit, I was knocked over with a bad case of food poisoning. I didn't sleep a minute last night, and really don't recommend anyone to repeat it. So avoid going to this place for the sake of your mood, your wallet, and your health.

I had a group of 25 people here awhile ago. I figured after some research this was the closest place that was kid-friendly to St. Patrick's. First they didn't have a enough seats for my party, eventhough the place was empty. Second, I had to tell them to take the drink order, eventhough it was included. Third, I told the waiter 3 time my order and he still got it wrong. On our pre-fixe menu, it says, one of our famous serafina pizzas to see its just one type of pizza, plain. To top it off, the dessert that was a kind of jello type was served to share. They just put a few in the middle of the tables and spoons, no seperate plates. I was so embarassed. They finally brought the plates out and my guests were sliding their desserts onto their plates. And then at the end, they added 20% tip to the bill and we left. I usually give more than 20%, especially for a big group, but the service was did not deserve it. I complained to the event manager, all she offered was a free meal. If I didn't enjoy it the first time, what makes you think I'm going to come back even free.

Serafina is right around the corner from my apartment. I often go there and noticed a huge variance in service depending upon the time of day. They get very busy during lunch and dinner but afternoon (a plus is they serve throughout the day, since they are attached to the hotel) to early dinnertime, they are very attentive. Food is good for the mostpart, and the spaghetti squash dish is delicious! Outdoor seating is fun too in the spring/summer/fall.

The worst of the worst!!! I have been to many serafinas around the city but this one is just the worst. My waiter arrived to the table , but he looked more like homeless than server!!!! He was highly pretending Italian accent what was so funny!!! I ordered Fillet minion but i received Steak, waiter told me that the kitchen is busy and to correct the mistake is going to take 45 minutes!!! I never got my wine and desert. When I was living I complained to the tall older gentleman who look like owner, but he told me: you should speak to the manager, I'm not in charge of that.

1 of the worst, if not the worst, dinning experience ive had in my life. the food is horrible, the waitress only showed up 4 times. once to ask for our appetizer, 2 for our lunch choices, 3 to bring the check, and 4 to get the check. i worked in hospitality/hotel management in nyc for 5 years(so ive eaten and been to the most upscale places in the city) never have i been so upset. me and my party of 4 decided the service so so bad we wouldnt leave a tip. the bruscetti was bad, the salad was bad, the cornish was bad, the staek and fries was ok, but the merlot was swile, but they charge like its aged, lol. do yourself a favor and save your money
