José Serrato (September 30, 1868 – September 7, 1960) was a Uruguayan political figure.
Serrato was a prominent member of the Uruguayan Colorado Party which had long dominated the politics of the country. He was broadly identified with the policies of José Batlle y Ordóñez, but was regarded as not being strongly ideological, and thus able to work with others in the party with more polarized standpoints. He served as Minister of Finance from 1904-1906.

He himself was succeeded by Juan Campisteguy.
Serrato later served as Uruguayan Foreign Minister under President Juan José de Amézaga.
He died in 1960, more than 30 years after leaving the Presidency.
