Most Hollanders will remember this place as the location of a former great Italian restaurant. Many mixed reviews since then as well as a couple changes in ownership. So happy my thrifty fiance decided to buy a groupon. The food and service were both wonderful and we are looking forward to returning soon!

First,the good part of our visit - the waitress and all of the staff were very busy and courteous. Oh and It does have a nice ambiance with a street cafe type of feel. That's it - the only good things I could come up with. Rating it terrible seems unfair to the wait staff, but a poor rating seems... More

Walked in at 5:30 pm on a Friday. No one at the hostess stand. Sat ourselves at a table in the bar. We were meeting another couple and using a Groupon for 4 meals for $115 (includes 2 bottles of wine, 4 salads, 4 entrees, 2 desserts). The wine I selected they are out of, although still listed on the... More

The food here is very good, and the menu options are great. We have visited on numerous occasions and just cannot figure out the almost dreadfully slow service. From getting seated to cocktails to appetizers to the entre. It's just always slow.

The food was ok but limited menu. The atmosphere was weird. The restaurant had a dungeon feel to it. Not many people when we eat there.

We had an incredible rehearsal dinner here. They were very willing to be flexible and accommodate us! They customized a menu and did a buffet style dinner since we had a large party. Everyone was raving about how good the food was. We had pizza, salad, and a chicken option. SO good!

Downtown Holland was hopping, but only a few tables occupied here...should have been my clue. My daughter insisted on pasta, so we stayed. Server not knowledgable about the menu. I had a shrimp pasta that was $22. There were 4 average size shrimp. I mentioned it to our server and she just shrugged. My husband's lasagna was just OK. Even... More

I visited with my boss and two team members back in December for our annual Christmas lunch. I was immediately struck by the strong smell of bleach in the entry hallway and even in the restaurant. There was only one other table occupied in the place. We thought about getting up and leaving, but the waiter had already brought out... More

We went with a group to Serafina's. Prices are 20% higher than good near by restaurants. Expect 45 minutes for bill to processed. Expect a 10 minute wait for bread after the entrees are service. They received the award as Holland's nosiest place. A bad place to discuss business.
