  • Solo Travel Girl on Aug 14, 2013

    I had read about hour wait times and long lines just to be seated in Serendipity 3. Reservations are only accepted for meals and not desserts. On a Wednesday afternoon around 3 p.m., I rolled the dice and showed up...

  • ChefMozGood dessert, but RUDE staff ruined my whole experience. Wait was 1.5 to 2 hours on Sunday afternoon. Staff yelled at me for not being there when my name was called. Told me to get out of the way. I was shocked, angry, upset. I think having open heart surgery with a rusty fork would be more enjoyable.

  • AlAnoud GA masterpiece on its own. Everywhere you turn, you'll be wowed by their decor❤️ friendliest staff, great food (Julia's chicken salad, Cheese Ravioli).. and the queen of them all, frozen hot chocolate!

  • Annanaansn CGood food hot chocolate is bar

    55555 by Annanaansn C

  • Eliza AThis place is overrated. Waiting for an hour for a regular coffee place. Fruit bowl not fresh and tasty at all. All the food we tried was of mediocre taste. The prices were ridiculous. Good service.

    55555 by Jeffery W.

  • Caitlin SakdalanI think Serendipity is something that every curious tourist or new "New Yorker" has to experience. Overpriced and usually busy but necessary

    55555 by Caitlin Sakdalan

  • Pam H.Wait was ridiculously long at just about two hours. If you can, plan ahead and call to make a ressie. We killed time at Dylan's candy shop and Bloomies so it worked out.

    33333 by Pam H.

  • Jessica PThe frozen hot chocolate is the star of the show here. With this place's blossoming reputation, expect there to always be a wait.

  • WejdanFrozen hot chocolate = Frozen nesquik.

    55555 by Wejdan

  • Lisa RFrozen hot chocolate is a must. The shrimp salad sandwich is great,but it's not Irish soda bread. It's more like fruit bread😊. Also, the bi sensual burger is awesome but it's a bit piggy🐽🙈.

    55555 by Lisa R

  • Fumiko SFrozen hot chocolate and other fruit frozen drinks were amazingly delicious.

    55555 by Fumiko S

    55555 by Munirah E

  • Debra W.S3 is NY institution! This is a small establishment, with a menu decadent ice cream concoctions as unique as the restaurant itself. Go early to avoid the wait. Bring your camera and your appetite.

    55555 by Debra W.

  • 🏄Dimitris JGo there only if you are very hungry, don't expect gourmet cuisine!

    55555 by 🏄Dimitris J

  • Janet CheungI know this will be an unusual tip, however ask for the perfume! It's really warming and toasty and reminds me of the happy memories of New York when I am not in the city!

    55555 by DimeChuchin H

  • Josh MVery nice place and friendly staff, however to food is nothing special. The sundae made me feel sick.. More like a desert.

    55555 by Josh M

  • Marcela SemioneLoved the place, it felt like time traveling. I had frozen hot chocolate and cheesecake (both very good). It's better to split, as everything is very big.

    55555 by Marcela Semione

    55555 by Marion F

  • Annie K.The portions are large I came for the dessert and just couldn't do it. Save some room!

    33333 by Annie K.

  • Anna OhareYou'll wait a long time for your food, be told they don't have half the items on the menu, and then be asked if you are enjoying your meal, approximately 15 times. Cute place all the same though.

    33333 by Anna Ohare

  • Reem A.Frozen hot chocolate!

    33333 by Jackie

  • Madiha A.Besides the 'Frozen Hot Chocolates' which are amazing, I absolutely LOVED the 'Pink Ice' on the menu. Hands down the best dessert place to go to in New York.

    55555 by Madiha A.

  • Spooky S.One of the co-founders, Stephen, was in signing books. A little history, several recipes and a splash of celebrity.

    55555 by Spooky S.

  • Dave KersKnown for creating the original frozen hot chocolate, New Yorkers shouldn’t miss this dessert haven. Frrrozen Hot Chocolate is served in a large glass, topped with whipped cream and chocolate shavings

    55555 by Dave Kers

  • Elina ✈Super crowded packed with tourists.The frozen hot chocolate lives up to the hype. Its good place for lunch too, try the Catcher in The Rye sandwich,BLT and Madame Butterfly pasta. Good coffee also.

    55555 by Todd S.

  • Melissa R.Duh. Frozen hot chocolate.

    55555 by Melissa R.

  • Madhumanti S.I think the place is totally hyped, to be honest, their deserts are nothing great or to die for. Their frozen hot chocolate is horrible. Starbucks mocha cookie crumble is million times better.

    55555 by Madhumanti S.

  • Philo4ThoughtA very amusing collection of knickknacks to browse through while you wait to be seated. The food is good, but these get you to smile before you even get to the table.

    33333 by Majeela K.

  • Becky H.I used to come here when I was younger and loved their FHC. Returned as an adult and very disappointed. Don't get the salted caramel HC very artificial tasting. The can't say no sundae was good

    33333 by Becky H.

  • Roxana D.It's a nice place to drink a chocolate, but be careful, don't ask for a chocolate and for a dessert, you could have a heart attack! So much sugar!

    55555 by Roxana D.

    55555 by Lucy M.

    55555 by Kat K.

  • ConradFrozen Hot chocolate is very good but not if u have to wait 2 hours its not worth it then.

    33333 by Conrad

  • Aundrea E.Their AC is out in the middle of a NYC heat wave. They should've posted signs or called those with reservations about this. My frrrrrrozen hot chocolate melted away ASAP!

    33333 by Aundrea E.

  • Claire T.After telling us there's a 1.5-hr wait we were able to get in after 15 mts so make sure you check back often. Lots of empty seats inside. Food was mediocre. Frozen hot chocolate was tdf!

    33333 by Claire T.

  • DevinaLong waits. Overcrowded, overpriced, and overrated. Tried the frozen mocachino and it honestly wasn't that special. Just cold and big.

    22222 by Devina

  • Nelson D.Put your name on the waiting list (1 hr wait) and then go eat elsewhere. Try Patsy's Brick Oven Pizza across the street, then go back to S3 just in time for dessert.

    33333 by Nelson D.

  • Kara C.BIGGEST. LETDOWN. EVEEEEEERRR! Frozen Hot Chocolate was watered down chocolate milk!!

  • Khaula R.Frozen hot chocolate is good but extremely overrated!

    33333 by Khaula R.

    55555 by Nancy L.

  • Andreea O.Unimpressed... I really wanted to like this place. Tried the frozen hot chocolate - I would never have it again. Maybe other stuff on the menu is better...but I probably won't be back.

    33333 by Andreea O.

  • Brian P.Not worth it. Food is mediocre, service is way too slow. Servers just go missing at times. People that work here just don't care.

  • Marissa D.If I ever lived in New York, I would be horribly obese from drinking the delicious frozen hot chocolate at Serendipity all day, every day.

    55555 by Marissa D.

  • Steven E.The food here was absolutely amazing! Below is their mixed grill! I had nachos lemon custard cake and the frozen hot chocolate! I highly recommend this place!

    55555 by Steven E.

  • Joey B.Best way to consume the frozen hot chocolate is to first put a dollop (1 dollop!) of the whipped cream in ya mouth then drink it. But that's just me..

    55555 by Joey B.

  • Jannie V.Haute Dog is a must even at $69. Cooked in truffle oil, the fresh bread, flown in from Germany is smothered with truffle butter and fleur de sel, and smeared with foie gras. Magnifique!

    55555 by Jannie V.

  • Vik P.Be prepared to queue for up to two hours when it's busy.

  • Aysem E.it's no Christmas in NYC without a visit to Serendipity cafe. Superb hot chocolate....

    55555 by Aysem E.

  • Gerilyn M.The Frrrozen Hot Chocolate is nothing special. Topped with something that looks like but doesn't taste like whipped cream, it's like a bad attempt at a chocolate shake. #Overrated

    33333 by Gerilyn M.

  • Elizabeth O.If you order the Banana Split "Coward" be ready for a huge portion...absolutely yummy :)

    55555 by Elizabeth O.

    55555 by Luiz B.

  • Birtan E.It's stupid that you have to order a minimum of $8.50. You can not just come and have frozen hot chocolate for 2.

    33333 by Birtan E.

  • Ashton W.Sit in the table down stairs next to the funky mirror across from the ladies bathroom.. The waiter said Justin Bieber sat there last thanksgiving! Ha:)

  • Norman E.Get a table upstairs. Less crowded and more Intimate. Split a Shepard's pie or an omelette and you'll still have room for the treats. Froz hot chic is to die but try the apricot smush as well.
