Everyone told us as we are planning our trip to New York that we had to go here. We were warned about long lines. We ended up not really waiting very long even though it looked like we would. The man working the front desk was rather rude. He didn't seem to really like his job. I tried the frozen hot chocolate. It was pretty good. The rest of my family got different desserts. Everyone enjoyed what they ate but didn't think there was anything extra special to it.... Especially for what it cost! We've been there and done that. But probably wouldn't go back when we return to New York!

I adore this restaurant! Every time I visit NYC, I make sure to stop by Serendipity for dessert. Their Frozen Hot Chocolate, of course, is delicious and so fun. What a genius idea! And the Forbidden Broadway Sundae... oh my gosh. Simply put, if you love chocolate, you've got to try it. The portions are fabulously enormous, so sharing is a really good idea. :)

My family visited Serendipity 3 in June. We had diiner and dessert. We arrived 30 minutes before our reservation the host was so nice we were seated right then and we had no wait. The meal was wonderful the best we had in New York. We can wait to return. We love Serendipity 3!!!!

This review is just for the frozen hot chocolate - it was tasty & I really enjoyed it. It's creamy and yet crunchy because there are tiny chunks of crushed ice in there.but it was good! It's pretty big though, so I recommend sharing it with someone. <br> <br>FYI there's an $8.50 minimum charge per person if you dine in. <br> <br>There was no wait when we went in the middle of the afternoon on a Thursday. Wahoo :)

We tried Serendipity 3 for the first time and it was absolutely out of this world! We ordered the famous frrrrozen hot chocolate and the Cinnamon Fudge Sundae. I was so happy that my husband and I decided to order to the Cinnamon Fudge Sundae because it was unlike anything else I'v ever eaten, it was out of this world scrumptious. The BEST dessert that we've ever had. The Cinnamon ice cream was delicious was an amazing surprise, it was absolutely the best and well worth our 15 bucks. I can't wait to go back!!

Serendipity 3 is THE ABSOLUTE BEST ICECREAM PLACE EVER!!! Some impatient people seem to think the hour to two hour wait is not worth it. WELL THEY ARE WRONG!! It is SO worth it. Not only are the sizes gargantuos, but its amazing quality!
