The Zagat Review
“Must-try” frozen hot chocolate is the signature and the other American comfort offerings are mere “prelude” at this “whimsical” , circa-1954 East Side sweets 'n' gifts “institution” ; despite “high prices” , “sassy” service and “crazy crowds” , it's a magnet for “tourists” and “grandchildren” alike.

If you watch the movie Serendipity you have pay this place a visit💙 It was great timing because the wait was only 15 minutes. We were seated downstairs and realized how small it was. If I had young kids with me it might have been an obstacle. The decor was nice to look at. The menu is pricey but what do you expect at a desirable place. The restroom is super small and a line forms through the restaurant. My husband and I were extremely happy with our meals and of course we ended with a frozen hot chocolate! What a great experience. I will definitely visit again my next time in the city.

If you’re looking for good food, this is not the place to go to. Got my broccoli-cheddar soup warm/cold, tasted like broccoli bits sprinkled sparingly in that thick nacho cheese (if you’ve eaten nachos at the movies, you know what I’m talking about). The quality of the food was far below my expectations! Serendipity is more of a dessert place. The portion sizes are huge and probably enough for 4 people. I got the humble pie and it was really sweet. Be careful if you’re watching your sugar intake! As far as the feel goes - it is a funky and quirky place. The vibe downstairs is much better than the vibe upstairs.

Food is excellent, but if you dine later in the evening, expect several items from the menu to be sold out. I considered several entrees, but all were sold out. I ended up getting the chicken pot pie. It was delicious, but very mushroom in flavor. I love mushrooms, but some do not. The mushrooms are not listed in the description. Like most places in the area, there's only one stall for the ladies' restroom. Plan to wait in a long line if you need to use the restroom.
