Great little neighborhood restaurant

Hadn't been to Serafina for a while so met some friends. They seated 7 of us in comfortable large table by the patio. Service was excellent. We ordered a bottle of wine and brought several to open - no corkage fee since we bought a bottle. Everyone's food was excellent. Same experience as... read more

I cannot recommend Serafina enough. We've been for cocktails, brunch & dinner - each visit memorable. The food is always great and its a great atmosphere. I highly recommend brunch, they have a live jazz band. If it's nice enough request a seat on the patio.

Try it and you'll like it! A popular expression but one that is true for this bar/restaurant. This is my daughter-in-law's favorite place in Seattle and she knows her restaurants.

Went to Serafina for the first time to celebrate 2 birthdays. It was a Saturday night, so the restaurant was packed and noisy. We had a reservation and were seated promptly even though they very busy. The menu is limited, but the quality of each item was excellent. There were 5 of us and each ordered something differen. Everyone was... More

We were in town for the Seattle Marathon and ate here on the advice of a local. What a great tip! From the moment we walked in we felt right at home. Warm and welcoming vibe and the staff is not pretentious in any way (one of our pet peeves). The service, food, and wine were all top notch at... More

What a fun evening! Went out with another couple for dinner with a reservation. The place was packed on a Saturday night. We enjoyed salads (beet) and a cup of soup (sun choke). Entrees around the table included butternut squash ravioli, eggplant on angel-hair pasta, and the beef spare ribs special. The wine was Poliziano vin Nobile, a chianti. For... More

I've been to Serafina twice. Once for happy hour which I can say was wonderful. The place definitely gets busy during this time, I am sure with many locals as this is a pretty residential area. The drinks were great and apps as well. Reasonably priced HH. I also visited for lunch with my co-workers. While I will admit the... More

We visited Serafina on our last Seattle visit. It has long been a favorite of ours!! Still the same great food and wine. Service is extremely good and is very attentive but not stuffy. Eggplant is to die for. Also had the profiteroles and mussels. (Incredible sauce) While it is loud and very busy, we were able to get our... More

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at Serafina. The place offered a very elegant and romantic ambiance; a piano and bass duo was playing good music while we dined. The staff was very professional and friendly giving us superb service. The food was very good, the perfect mix of elaborate cuisine that still maintained the home-style cooking feeling. We... More
