So this is a big claim...right... But it is true!
We just ate there for Easter and the meal was "Over the Top" excellent! Fantastic menu selection, Superb food, excellent service in wonderful atmosphere. Since they hired Chef Chandler the restaurant has vaulted to a "10" +.
If you get even close to Seattle...don't miss this restaurant. You will be in for the best meal of your life.

What I like to do at an Italian restaurant is when you can just go in and ask if the server or even the chef could just bring out what he or she thinks we would like. That's what our group of 4 did and it was simply incredible. See, sometimes it's the thing you wouldn't think of ordering for yourself that you end up liking the best. Bryan took care of us from start to finish bringing us each course in portions that made sense for 4 people. When we are all eating the same thing and Bryan presents each dish, the whole thing becomes an unforgettable and enjoyable evening. Can't wait to come back to Seattle so I can visit Serafina again. Thanks so much.

Serafina catered the wedding of our son - the courses kept coming. Unique cheeses, flatbreads, home made pastas and fresh fish and veggie dishes. Perfect! Thanks Chef Christian and Maxine!

Four of us went there on an absolutely ugly, stormy, rainy Seattle evening and the place was packed with a wait list. Luckily we had reservations (a must) and were promptly seated. Then the fun began. We had Laura as our wait person and she was great. Knew the menu, knew the specials, called the sommelier to help with the parings and always seemed to knew exactly the right time to appear at the table. It was a diverse group that ordered very different dishes, two had the lamb special, one had fresh wild steelhead(excellent) and the last had a pasta dish. Pasta lady stayed with a glass of the Pinot Grigio while the rest went for a bottle of red which would seem to be a challenge with two red meat dishes and a fish plate. Not a problem and the way in which he went about leading us to the wine was perfect. Pick a price point, tell me what you like and let me bring several bottles to the table. After which he explained what made these wines special and we easily picked something that I don't think we would have selected by ourselves off a wine list and it was superb. Other than the fact that parking was difficult (welcome to Seattle) we thoroughly our entire evening at Sarafina.
