Incredibly good. Service, ambience, and food all were excellent. We sampled several dishes and thought all were wonderful. Highly recommend the “dragos style oysters” and Parisian Gnocchi. Adding to our rotational list - very exciting to get another great add to the Raleigh-Durham area.

Great atmosphere and delicious New Orleans style food! Location is adorable, but a bit difficult to find. Definitely try the gumbo, the drago style oysters, and the spinach salad, and the boudin sausage. The beignets were ok, and the gnocchi was a bit thick. However, the food was good overall, and the service was great! Thanks Jade!

Wholeheartedly recommend Seraphine, this charming place showcases authentic Creole Soul Food. Note for the Culinary Team: The creations of all your dishes are impeccable + and leave a memorable impression. Each dish exceeded expectation, coming from a person growing up in Wisconsin + rarely eats creole or southern comfort food. Let’s talk detail: Attention to detail in the restaurant does not go unnoticed. The flatware is gold to compliment their restaurant colors {hunter green + salmon pink}, the string lights nestled in the bar walls really showcase the bar products + lights up restaurant. The unique plates for each dish were well selected; gives a southern comfort touch to the food. The fountain outside is a beautiful touch. Furthermore, the service team was on top of each person enjoying the restaurant. Being seated at the bar, each bartender went out of the way to ensure everyone was taking care of. To me, this means, water glasses filled, appropriate flatware at your place, plates, and you’re enjoying the experience. Can’t wait to come back to try everything else! Cheers.

TL;DR Food = exquisite. Vibes = golden. Shawn = incredible. We came for an informal, intimate baby shower! The atmosphere was perfect. The food was delicious. The service was impeccable. The hostess even helped us surprise the mom-to-be with an out of town guest. Everything was lovely! Shawn listened to our orders, made suggestions, kept our drinks filled, and even shared a few jokes! We will for sure go back and ask for Shawn! We ordered oysters DRAGOS STYLE, BBQ Shrimp, beignets, gnocchi, catfish, gumbo, and other orders I can’t remember. We were only disappointed in the texture of the beignets; they were a too bread-y. But definitely worth a taste— maybe we got a fluffy batch.

Wonderful food/drinks. Everything that was recommended to us was amazing. The Spinach Salad, Gnocchi, and Shrimp and grits were some of the table favorites. Best all around dining experience I have had in quite sometime. (Oysters pictured)

Absolutely phenomenal! We had several courses here and everything from the appetizers to the cocktails were impeccable. The attention to detail here is also not something to take lightly. I’ve worked as in food service since I was 18, so it takes a lot to impress me but these people truly do not miss a single beat. Had a fantastic spirit selection and additionally our server was an absolute gem, both personable and knowledgeable. The oysters were some of the best I’ve had, specifically the bacon and pimento cheese broiled ones. The pork chop was beautifully seasoned and flavorful, beautiful sear as well. We also loved the croquettes and gnocchi!!! I will be back.

Awesome meal last night. Another Durham gem. Service was impeccable. The drinks were fantastic. And the food. Can't think of the right words to say how great it was. Can't wait to go back

I sat outside near the fountain where the ambiance was fantastic and romantic. The oysters, gumbo, and crawfish croquettes were simply divine. My date thoroughly enjoyed the gnocchi. The banana pudding reminded me of my grandmother's recipe, and the beignets were a nice treat. Along with a great wine selection, this new restaurant hits all the marks!

What a wonderful addition to the Culinary scene in the Triangle. Very creative takes on Cajun influenced menu design. Staff was friendly, professional. The decor is amazing. The food is out of this world delicious. Remember to let the parking attendant at the deck know you are going for free Parking.

My significant other and I live close by and are always excited to try new restaurants. Our experience at Seraphine was absolutely perfect and we are already planning our next time. The food…..I’m still thinking about it. It was all perfect. We started with the 1/2 dozen of the Dragos Style oysters & it truly was one the best bites of food I’ve ever had. Next level flavor. Next, we had the bbq shrimp & they were also so delicious. I want to bottle that sauce & take it home with me - so good. For our entrees, I got the gnocchi and my significant other got the pork chop. Both were cooked to perfection. We spent most of the time stealing bites off of each other’s plates. The drinks were also amazing - highly recommend the DERM75. For dessert, we got the beignets. So delicious as well. The service & atmosphere was also very good. Highly recommend Seraphine, truly one of the best restaurants in Durham. We will be back soon!

Phenomenal new offering from the guys at Nanasteak. They have done a beautiful job in this space, the food is fantastic, and these guys already know great service. Will become a new regular spot for me here at ATC. Stand out dish so far is the Dragos Style oysters in chilli-life butter. I could have eaten a whole pot of the sauce!

Hands down, the best seafood I've ever had. The red remoulade with the fried oysters is to die for; and you will not be left wanting there's a generous portion of the remoulade. Something quite uncommon in most restaurants. The tuna crudo and redfish ceviche with the avocado mousse is peerless. I highly recommend it. The gnocchi is pillowy perfection, the Tasso cream it's served with is rich but not too heavy. High honors go to the spinach salad with an warm andouille dressing and charred red onions over a goat cheese mouse. I could eat it every day until I die. Its the best salad I've ever had. I usually have to drive to the coast to get a semblance of seafood this good. The drinks are great too.

Every dish we had (and we had several) was perfectly prepared! The seasoning and execution were amazing, especially considering how new the restaurant is. The patio was such a nice vibe with the fountain, string lights, and tobacco campus water flowing in the background. The music and interior design were also really cool. Can't wait to come back to try everything!

Amazing atmosphere. We dined in the delight of wonderful food, company, and service. The timing of the food was immaculate, the oysters are to die for, and to top it off- the owners are very gracious and hospitable. We will definitely be back!
