The Serendipity3 has been around since 1954, and has served great food ever since that time. If you get a chance to visit this restaurant on 60th street just east of Central Park, make sure you order the frozen hot chocolate. It's to die for!Recommended for:Foodies

This place is a must stop for any person visiting New York for the first time (or multiple times). What's not to love about delicious and mouth watering desserts? Although they do serve savory foods, most people come here for the desserts. When I first came to Serendipity it was about 9pm, and there was long line out the door. If you come here, be ready for a wait. Finally, my group was called to sit at a table upstairs. It was cool walking through the front of the store, noticing all the cute and nostalgic toys, figures, and candies. Once I sat down and looked at the menu, I had no idea what to order since all the desserts sounded so good. Since it was my first time here, I thought I would try the much talked about and famous Frrrozen Hot Chocolate. When my order came out, I did not realized it was so huge! I got a brain freeze trying to drink it all up, but it tasted sooo good! What a way to kill your chocolate and sweet tooth craving all at the same time. Next time I visit here, I would to like try their sundaes, perhaps the Golden Opulence Sundae? (Hmm, maybe not that sundae seeing that its price is pretty hefty.)

Man, I haven't been there in years, but their Frrrozen Hot Chocolate still holds a special place in my heart. I think the food is a bit pricey for what it is (none of the regular meals are all that extravagant), but the desserts... I once saw someone order that $21 sundae and couldn't believe my eyes when it was brought to the table. The size alone was crazy.
Really though, if not for the Frrrozen Hot Chocolate, I'd probably not have gone so often. It's a very cute place (REALLY adorable, actually), but the wait for a table is always ludicrous. If you plan on going, especially on a weekend, avoid the post theater crowd and try to get their when everyone's tucked away in Broadway.

The only reason to come here is due to the fact that it's a famous landmark. There's absolutely nothing impressive about the food, menu or atmosphere. They do have a decent home made peanut butter pie, though: one perhaps your grandmother would make.

Came here with some friends who were visiting from San Francisco. We ordered some hot entrees and the frozen hot chocolate. Everything was mediocre. There are so many other great options in NYC; I wouldn't recommend my friends to come.

Prepare to order the "Frrrozen Hot chocolate" and prepare to wait in line for a long time before getting seated. The menu includes a wide selection of items - although I can't seem to remember anything spectacular off the top of my head - except the Frrozen Hot chocolate. In my experience, the walk-in wait list has ranged anywhere between 30 minutes to 3 hours. Years ago, I remember not being able to walk in or even get a next-day reservation! So plan ahead.
If you want to try the Golden Opulence Sundae, which was listed in Guinness World Records, make sure you have $1000.00 to spare.
