Just ok

Customer service sucked!! Waitress pushy for orders before you even take a bite of your app. Can't hear, seated way too close to Others.. May be why you can't heAr. Gluten free pasta only Comes in two kinds. But was good. Apple pie a joke.. Looked like bread pudding instead. Wouldn't go back

We came here after a broadway show on a Saturday night. All of the other restaurants were packed and we got a table here immediately. They seemed like they were prepping to close the restaurant. Our food came out in five minutes! Not sure how they can do that. My penne pasta was a little tough and chewy. It could... More

I been there couples of time and always the food is great. Try the black fettuchini with spicy seafood and for desert the chocalate suffle, outstanding. And waiters are very helpful.

Hubby and I scored Book of Mormon tickets through the lottery, and stopped here for dinner before. Our table was off to the side, very romantic. We ordered pizza for the table to share. Two toppings, we picked sausage and mushrooms. Being from Chicago, we know pizza. This was delicious and the perfect pre-theater meal. Very close to our hotel,... More

What a surprise in district filled with so many tourist traps. This has the ambiance, service and quality of a neighborhood restaurant. Dishes are creative versions of classics, nicely presented and simply delicious. Only did lunch there but will definitely return soon for dinner.

We were at the hotel in front of Serafina at 49 th street. We went there about four times and it was great. The staff was awsome and we highly recommend the place. Delicious food.

After diner theater. The margarita pizza came exactly with 4 olives and 4 basil leaves, not even one per slice. We had to ask twice for extra cold olives. Chianti by the glass ( $14) was horrible. The thin crust however was ...thin as promised.

Always a good meal with quick, efficient service. The best is the low cost, especially in the NYC theatre district. Look for the black, squid-ink linguini, served with a melange of seafood in a hearty marinara sauce.

We ate a Serafina because it was convenient to where we were in NYC. We didn't have the time for high end, formal dining & this place is casual. The food is pretty good. My wife had the black truffle pasta, which she liked but it had too much oil. I had the tuna & salmon tartare app & the... More

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
