I ordered the fudge sundae & it tasted nothing so extraordinary & so luscious. It really tasted like the sundaes they serve at fast food joints. No kidding.

I've always loved going to Serendipity 3, but you have to know what to expect. Yes, it can be pricey, but if you accept that and just enjoy the food (which is outstanding), you'll have a good time. Expect a long wait and pretty poor service. For an occassion, it's worth it. Just not something to go to all the time.

I've been to Serendipity twice, once for dessert, once for dinner. My first time there my party got seated right away, probably because it was a Tuesday night. Although the dessert menu has plenty to choose from, it is all way overpriced. I got a banana split and the small one was twelve dollars! And I was quite disappointed when I received it because I could make the same exact thing at home. Plus, if your party is only ordering dessert every person must order something that costs at least $6.50 or they will just automatically charge you that if your item costs less than that. The second time when I ordered dinner, it was slightly better. The wait to be seated however was 45 minutes and allowed me time to browse Bloomingdale's and Dylan's Candy Bar which I would have enjoyed more if I wasn't so desperate to eat. I ordered a pasta dish with sea food and basil sauce which was actually quite tasty. However the serving was quite small for the steep price (around twenty dollars). Service is average, no one was particularly hospitable. Atmosphere, I didn't really notice if there was one. Overally it's an okay restaurant, not really worth all the hype it receives.

After waiting for 2 hours to eat dessert, I was extremely disappointed by the items that I had only heard raves about in the past. The frrrrrozen hot chocolate was a poor, glorified version of an instant breakfast drink, and the sundaes were nothing special. Please do not let the reputation fool you.

I don't know if the attitude of the waiting staff varies day by day, but they were great when I was there. Waiters who weren't even waiting on me where making jokes and talking to me. I felt that they were overall pretty hospitable. Anyone who can compare the frrozen hot chocolate to a frosty must be having some amazing frosty's because it is definitely the best chocolate drink I ever had (hardly comparable to a fast food drink). I also had the chocolate mousse, which was a bit small, but it was nevertheless the best I'd ever had. I also ordered the BLT sandwich, which was also very good (nice big pieces of bacon, yummy!). I wanted to have more dessert since they were amazing, but unfortunatly I got full :-(. Anyways I loooved the environment, it was quirky with excellent music playing in the background (the Garden State soundtrack) it just all went together and it couldn't have been better for me. On top of that the wait was only 30 minutes aftre they told us that it would be 2 and a half and we got seated immediately. I will definitely go back and attempt as many of their desserts as possible!

Went for a late night dessert, which was above and beyond our expectations! However, the service was by and far the worst we had on this trip to the city. Our waiter disappeared and we were finished 35 minutes before someone tracked him down for us. Our daughter is a college student in the city and she goes frequently for the desserts, but tells me the service in general is to be desired at the quaint NYC spot!

Visiting Serendipity in New York City must be a treat that you give yourself. The Frozen Hot Chocolates are the best. It is definitely on my to do list when I visit my daughter again.
