    Frozen hot chocolate was amazing -- but the apple pie and chocolate cake were flavorless.

    This dessert holds the Guinness World Record for the most expensive sundae in the world. The sundae is infused with Madagascar vanilla, chocolate syrup from Amedei Porcelana, 23k gold, and more. Read more

    Frozen hot chocolate is delicious! Dinner food is just okay - pretty touristy but if you come at off hours it's not a long wait.

    This 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.

    Have the frozen hot chocolate; that's a NYC must. But pretty much everything else sucks, from the service to food. Get your name on the wait list, eat somewhere else and return for dessert.

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

    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.

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

    Frozen 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🐽🙈.

    The worst hostess/ receptionist in the world ,she is DISGUSTING, RUDE, SARCASTIC and CONDESCENDING. If you decide to go, stay away from her because she will undoubtedly ruin your dining experience.

    The BLT is so good, but you have to eat it open-faced because it's so large- Mint frozen hot chocolate is amazing and they are generous with the fudge when ordering ice cream w/ fudge

    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.

    Definitely not light or healthy but that's not the point. Get there early, book a table, and just enjoy the decadent desserts!

    Frozen hot chocolate is a little bit overrated. You should try french toast instead (even if it's not a substitution). It's delicious.

    Didn't like the place. Overall all staff including manager and waitress was trying to kick us off in 20-30 minutes when I sat down the table. Such a shame. Don't go, you wouldn't like the experience.

    Be aware. They will refuse to serve or seat you as far as 15 minutes before closing time on the weekend. Closing hours were also 1 am not 2 am on weekends as foursquare says.
