Once tried to get into, when the queue was 2 hours long we tried book for tomorrow without any success. He yelled why we was here if we didn't want to wait so long, so we left it.

The hype is true..the frozen hot chocolate is fabulous. Well worth the hour wait. Serving staff is prompt and accommodating to a friend with food allergies.

We go to Serendipity 3 every time we are in NYC. Great for delicious desserts. Also a wonderful, eclectic food menu. Make reservations for dinner (you can't just for desserts). Reasonably priced meals, especially for NYC.

I like most of the people visiting New York wanted to go to this restaurant for the nostalgia and the hoo ha about this place. My first recommendation is to book a reservation online. If you think that you can just go out shopping during the day and pop in for a quick lunch or linner then you are sadly... More

It was an hour and a half to just get in but the food was decent. We sat at the table from the movie serendipity. I don't know if I would do it again, but it was defiantly an experience.

Ate there with 5 friends. Very friendly and accommodating. Server made great recommendations. Meatloaf was incredible. Norwegian salmon was excellently prepared and cooked, but really needed some sauce or spice, very bland. The mixed grill also lacked some spice. Dessert was a special pecan pie sundae - yummy. I would eat again, and do salmon, but would want a sauce.

We had heard about their frozen hot chocolate and decided to try it. Before we had that we shared an ultimate BLT and it was absolutely delicious. The bread was very tasty and thick. It came with loads of bacon, lettuce and tomatoes. The frozen hot chocolate was fantastic. The whipped cream was real not the from a can. The... More

Had to wait a white for a table but well worth the wait. The menu us huge, and an experience. Had the shepherds pie. Like no other shepherds pie I've tasted. Superb home cooking. Followed by a pecan pie which was delicious plus. Cannot describe the taste. A word of warning, portions are huge! The upstairs area is not as... More

Each time I visit NYC, I have dinner at Serendipity and each time it is marvelous. I took my grandson for his 10th birthday and he was enchanted as all the other grandchildren have been over the years. Atmosphere is fun and entertaining. Food is excellent. Frozen hot chocolate is a memory maker. Each time I think we can't possibly... More
