I made my reservation 3 weeks in advance. We got there a little early and we were told that our table would be ready at our reserved time. We were seated 5 minutes earlier. Our server was wonderful. He made some alterations to our food to accommodate us with no problems. All the staff was attentive. The frozen hot chocolate... More

We visited Serendipity in early feb, we were be able to be seated straight away upstairs. We ordered a frozen hot chocolate and omelettes which were great. Everything was delicious! The staff were very attentive and friendly. Definitely worth a visit.

We happened to be walking past around 11.30 am when the restaurant opens so decided to walk over and check it out (seen the film and heard the fuss about this place). There were only 3 or 4 couples/families in front of us and nobody behind. It's a cute little restaurant as you walk in, a lot going on, it... More

We went to Serendipity on a holiday (President's Day) during peak lunch time so we expected a crazy wait time. We were told the wait would be 2 hours but we had time to kill and weren't too hungry so we put our name down. You do not have to wait there. They allow you to leave and come back... More

Stopped in at 11 pm, 30 minutes of waiting for a table that was open when we arrived. At least we were not told an hour of wait like the people who arrived after us. Manager eating by the counter and didn't seem to want bothered with anything kind of odd

You will hear almost every table buzzing about this being the location of a famous movie (which it was), so it's heavily visited for that reason, but we like coming here because the food is delicious. Huge menu with lots of variety. Cheeseburgers are yummy and taste homemade. And of course the frozen hot chocolate is a dream! I can... More

The restaurant is lovely and cozy. The food was very satisfying but could use more seasoning for the price of what you pay per dish. The service was great. Our waiter provided much information was very attentive. My husband had the meatloaf. It was served with mash and a house salad. The hot dog with chili and cheese was decent... More

My husband and I stopped in for lunch on Valentine's Day. No wait for a table, which was nice, so lunch is definitely the best time to go. We had a great time! We each had a sandwich and shared a frozen peanut butter hot chocolate. Everything was delicious! The food is a little pricey, but the atmosphere and quality... More

Love the food! Everything we ordered was really good. Even the Frozen Hot Chocolate was very good. The ambiance is also nice, not too noisy. Also love the design and decorations of the restaurant. Will definitely return to this restaurant!

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighbourhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
