Really lovely food.

Came upon this restaurant on our way to the Staten Island Ferry. The food at the outdoor tables looked delicious so we decided to stop. Menu is extensive, everything looks delicious. We ordered a light meal consisting of a black truffle pizza, a short pasta with fresh tomato sauce, and an arugula... read more

Went here for a bite to eat and an appetizer. Had a bottle of wine the sashimi and some Atlantic salmon. The sashimi was paper thin so paper thin you could not pick it up with a fork without it falling apart if you would have stacked all of the pieces together you would not come up with one piece...

The bar at Serafina is nice. It’s an open bar, so you see straight onto the street. (there is no wall) Which is great for a fun NYC experience of people walking. The bartender (young lady Tone) is fantastic and very friendly. We visited the bar twice during our stay at The Time, and it was lovely both times. The... More

The food was top notch and the wine was excellent. There were four in our party and everyone agreed that the meal was well worth it. The wait staff was attentive and very courteous. The prices were also reasonable for its locations. Overall a very pleasant experience.

We were looking for pizza and pasta on our final night in NYC and this restaurant was opposite our hotel. The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. One of our party wanted something off-menu and they were more than happy to cook it up. I had calamari and pizza, both of which were extremely tasty. The atmosphere and ambience were... More

Fabulous food and efficient service, only criticism was the staff were sometimes a bit hard to understand. But if I'd been able to speak Italian I think we'd have been fine.

We had brought our daughter to New York and were looking for a place for lunch. Our daughter's friend recommended it and as it was close, why not? Restaurant is cozy, not many there. With its location it most likely is feeding off of the theater crowd. Menu was quite expansive. Last page must have had over 15 different pizzas.... More

A favorite of my daughter, we tried it for the first time last fall. I am often skeptical of restaurants in the Theater District because many play to tourist trade. Our food was delicious, the menu was varied, the service was wonderful. I would absolutely go back. I can see why our daughter insisted we go there.

Staying in Midtown

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.
