We've stayed at the NYLO, which is attached to this restaurant, and both times we've had brunch at Serafinas. I don't know what the rest of their menu is like, but we really enjoy their brunch menu. It is a great place to sit and watch people walking up and down Broadway.

Went for dinner and the cornish hen was certainly worth the 20 minute wait. The panna cotta was devine! Turned up for breakfast the next morning too which was also fantastic. Staff were very friendly and had a really nice atmosphere. Would definitely go again

Nice meal. However, when check arrived a 17% tip was added, which I did not notice. I gave the waiter my credit card. When he returned with the credit card receipt it showed as a “subtotal” the amount of the bill (which included the 17% tip). Below that was a “suggested gratuities” section showing amounts for tips from 18% to... More

We really want to like this restaurant, because it is near our favorite hotel. Last night my wife and I went there for dinner, and the restaurant was quite empty, and it was around 7PM. The hostess marched us to a table by the kitchen, and we were the only ones sitting by the kitchen in this empty restaurant. We... More

I ate here with a large family group on a recent trip to NYC. The service was good as was the food. Nothing was particularly special. I did appreciate that the portions sizes were reasonable - as opposed to huge and impossible for a normal person to eat. Pastas were not particularly inventive but were well prepared. This restaurant is... More

Let me note I am an out of towner. I went on a Sunday afternoon after I arrived at the adjacent hotel and this place was very busy. Food was good with lots of families but my general impression was an upscale fast food cafe. Prices fair. Food good. Nothing relaxing about this experience. Would not be likely to return.

I had the lobster ravioli and although it had a little bit more salt than necessary, it was really good. My sister had the lemon pasta which also tasted good. My other sister said her calamari was the best she'd had. I have no complain about the service. The music though can be improved.

This restaurant was across the road from our accommodation and we tried it out one night for takeaway pasta. Two pastas were enough food for our teenage family of four. We ordered takeaway at the bar and were able to set the pickup time. When we came back to pick up our pasta order we waited about 2 minutes. The... More
