Wait time for Serendipity 3?
Sorry to be asking a rather specific question, but I'm planning my trip to New York and want to get the timing down since I don't have a lot of time.
If I go to Serendipity 3 on a Friday night at around 11pm, how long of a wait should we expect?
Thank you all!
Last year I went to Serendipity on a Fri night, although earlier than you, and put my name on a waiting list. It was roughly an 1.5 hours to 1 hr 45 mins when we got our table. Your mileage may of course vary...
Both times I had the courage to go to Serendipity on a Friday night, I was told 1 hr and 45 min. by the person at the counter. Once, I waited about an hour, and the other time less than 20 minutes. I think the key is to just go there with patience-- many of the others in line don't have patience, so you just may get lucky if they decide to forgo the wait.
I've gone on a Friday night - i stopped by at 9pm to sign up - had a 2 hour wait - so was seated around 11pm. In the meantime - we took the tram to Roosevelt Island and walked around and enjoyed the views of manhattan for a bit. And then stopped at the bar by the Tram station on 2nd avenue for a drink. and still made it back in plenty of time to get our table.
I waited 5 hours once. Luckily I lived right around the corner so I just went home for the wait. I think it is closed now due to health violations so you may want to call first.
