Good place for a quick bite, amazing location as it is in the heart of the Broadway district with theaters all around.

What a shame.... A great night (including some great food and cocktails) at Serafina that quickly turned into a disaster when the bar staff tried to scam us and another couple by adding a heap of additional drinks to our tabs. Upon questioning we were then threatened that the police would be called if they had to review the CCTV.... More

My wife and I had dinner on a Saturday night at Serafina (the 49th Street location). Having made reservations on Open Table, we arrived on time and were promptly seated. From the get-go, the blaring music was painfully loud and so disruptive to conversation that my wife and I had to shout across the table at each other to be... More

I love Italian food and I was staying at the Time Hotel. I ordered pasta and was really al dente, exquisite flavors. I told my husband that was the best pasta I ate ever. I ordered a chicken linguine and was so creamy, tasteful, al dente with a good portion. Highly recommend.

We visited Serafina at the Time Hotel after a matinee theater performance. We shared an appetizer of the tomato brushettte which was very fresh and tasty! All ordered a pasta for dinner and each dish was hot and delicious. For dessert we all shared the Nutella Souffle with vanilla ice cream. We are looking forward to visiting this restaurant again...

Had dinner in the bar area before the theater. Service was fantastic! Food was delicious and quick. Highly recommended for a pre show meal or drink.

Serafina is located at The Time New York hotel. I've stopped there at the end of the day for food and drink. Drinks are a bit more expensive than a few other places, and the food is decent. Everything I've eaten there need more seasoning, though. Sliders needed salt and Calamari was well prepared, it needed more seasoning - salt,... More

Right in midtown, a couple of blocks off Broadway. Velvet seats, nostalgic feel. We were looking for some light dinner before our show. Overall, a good experience. But my shrimp dish, though really tasty, was minimal. My wife's pasta, however, was perfectly made: al dente and topped with delicious porcini (we'd had it theprevious week at the uptown brannch, near... More

Great Italian food and good service. The atmosphere is great for dining with a bar where you can wait or move to after dining.

Serafina takes a very honest approach to Northern Italian food with only the highest quality ingredients. Serafina's Fabulous Pizza delights diners with a simplicity of recipe execution combined with creative and original Italian dishes.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
