    How come every time I walk by this place on my way to a dinner befitting of a real man I see this place filled with orange, slightly overweight 40 somethings gents with died black hair wearing asshole collars and jewelry? Nothing like a chain Italian restaurant that smells like Grecian Grey and cologne. Not even Old Spice either.

    I don’t get it, what is wrong with this?

  • Bluehensfan

    I think they should rename it “The Upstairs Sucker Club…”

    The same people who thumb their noses at Serafina now, post-LaBan review, are the same people who eagerly awaited its opening simply because it was a New York eatery.

  • Victor Fiorillo

    Speaking for myself, I was never a proponent of Serafina.

    The upstairs was never open for dining, it was used for rentals. I love the idea of Serafina hosting cabaret shows. Philly hasn’t done cabaret in years, and in NYC there’s many venues. It was very nice night and the food was delicious. Did I mention it was sold out?

  • Michael G

    The only postive is that they will be upstairs and the cologne and perfume won’t hit when you walk by on the way to ramen at Nom Nom.

  • ImHungry

    Wait…people actually go there? Sad.

    We love ya, but your opinion is kinda jaded if you are getting paid by Serafina.
    Also, your “friend” is doing PR who I’m sure is paying you somehow too.
    Also, your PR friend is hot but her brother is either really really gay or way too orange

    I heard the food is terrible, always plenty of hotties sitting there hoping to be seen as I shamble past but they’re just sitting there chirping on their cell phones and ignore me.
