this place wasn't what I expected from what I saw on the food network show with rachael ray "40 dollars a day". we waited almost 45 minutes when we were told woul be seated in 20. the atmosphere and menu was very nice but I can't say the same about the host. he was very snobby and didn't crack a smile atleast once while seating people. overall the experiece was one iwouldnt wish upon anyone and no matter how do the frozen hot chocolate was it cannot singl handedly keep this place running!

My friends and I came here at around 3pm on a weekday for frozen hot chocolate. This place is tiny and does not have enough room for all its customers. We waited an hour to get a table, we ordered food that was expensive and not well prepared, but the frozen hot chocolate was delicious. I would never go back here though!

Throw away the diet and the calorie counting for a taste of heaven. Go for the Frozen Hot Chocolate with Peanut Butter and leave like a happy little kid. Your Wii Fit will know you were bad but it is well worth it...

There is no denying it, the ice cream is amazing. The Broadway Blackout Sundae (it has a actual slice of chocolate cake within the sundae) is divine! I'm not sure what the fuss is about over the frozen hot chocolate, don't bother with it - be adventurous and try something else. Go at an off-peak time like a spring or fall Tuesday night, there's no wait and the service is better. Unless you want to hate your life, avoid it completely around the winter Holidays and during the entire summer.

I went to Serendipity with 3 friends from out of town on a monday around 4pm to have desserts, since we had lunch somewhere else. After waiting for 30 minutes we sat and the idea was to get a large dessert for the 4, since portions are huge. When I order one of the most expensive desserts on the menu, around $15, the waiter tells us that we have a $8.50 minimum per person, showing the sentence in the menu saying "not so humble, minimum of $8.50 per person". That was absolutly ridiculous. I lost all the enjoyment going there and for sure that was the last time. Either you have to be very fat or prepare yourself to order food and throw in the garbage.

Menu is attractive but items are overpriced and pretty bland. I could have made my pasta dish at home, and it cost $18. Our waiter took all of our orders by memory and messed up three out of four. Kids loved the frozen hot chocolate but our meal definately wasn't worth the 45 minute wait.

I've gone to Serendipity 3 a few times during the holiday season, and each time I've enjoyed the visit. Each time, I've had different menu items (but always the Froooozzzen Hot Chocolate). The food is decent, have not had a complaint about it. It's not a place that claims to be a 5 star, so there are things that you just have to deal with. It is a bit cramped. Wait staff has always been pleasant. I've made reservations once, and had to wait in the line once. Waiting in line, I waited about 35/40 minutes for lunch. It's not unlike some other chain restaurants - Cheesecake Factory, Changs, Olive Garden - where you have to wait at least that long. Food prices are within reason for a NYC restaurant. Overall, I've enjoyed Serendipity 3 each time I've gone and will probably visit it again.
