My wife and I had dinner on the terrace here on a beautiful evening in July. Everything was fabulous, from the pre-dinner cocktail (try the Manhattan Superiore and the Elisir del Fiore) to the Cozze (Mussels, smoked tomato, harissa, sweet vermouth). Entrees are fantastic, service is exceptional and the wines are just grand. Highly recommended.

Serafina on Eastlake is a cozy hideaway and Seattle staple since 1991. Although it is pretty well known in Seattle it still has a charm and feels as if it is a well kept secret. While small and intimate, it has a steady bar scene, and “not a bad table in the house.” The staffers are friendly, prompt, and knowledgeable.... More

Was in town for a meeting and went to Serafina with a group of about 8. They were great accommodating us and we had a nice corner round table. It's a lively place with lots of action, not super quiet. They brought some amazing rustic homemade bread with olive oil. Wine selections were mostly italian, and we found a fine... More

This restaurant is a unique dining experience. They have a vast wine selection and extraordinary menu. The staff is very professional and friendly. The staff are very competent at wine pairings. On the weekends they have live entertainment. During the summer they open the outside dining in the courtyard. The bread with olive oil is always a nice starter. There... More

Celebrating my birthday, the three of us had a wonderful meal, full of good flavors. The caprese appetizer has thick cut tomatoes and wonderful mozzarella, the charcuterie was more than enough for the three of us to share. The short ribs were rich and meaty and the eggplant involtini was a taste treat. We enjoyed their manhattan especiale to start... More

Over the years, all of my experiences at Serafina were great - exceptional food, good service, nice vibe. Until this week. We visited for the first time in about a year and prices have just got too high - least expensive wine is $10 a glass - most are $14 to $16. Butter lettuce salad is now $11. And most... More

On a warm summer evening, we sat on patio for dinner and had a very special experience. Service over the top (Fern primary server), pork chop best ever, wife had rabbit pasta (light on rabbit, terrific taste) and the ahi tartare over the top. Highly recommended. Will return - first visit.
