    Gigantic sports' bar transformed to attractive space with quality finishes. Mid-week, 7:30 pm pleasant, few patrons. Note: noisy when busy (brunch). Food tasty, well-prepared, no surprises on straight-forward menu. Steak frites probably best value item at $25. Kitchen ignored waitress's very clear request for sauces on the side for one entree. Plate served by clueless busboy, replacement (with eye-roll and a huff) took too long - my entree stone cold by then. Prices: $21 mac & cheese is wearing me out, but $12 for the 2 1/2 ounces of wine? The splash in the glass same at other tables. This practice must be protested. Skip comp muffins at door; serve a glass of wine! Overall, adequate and predictably a tad pricey.

    my friend and I came at the end of the lunch hour rush so people were basically leaving. Food was fine but EACH simple request had to be made twice since the waiters disappeared and we'd flag down whoever passed us by. We had to flag someone down to take our order. We had to ask for water refill twice. We had to ask for coffee twice. We had to ask for our check twice. And interestingly, we realized there was no dedicated waiter to our table -- a different waiter for everything.

    Had been to the Upper West Side location and loved it, but needed to meet people and the Park Ave South location was good for all. A very different feel - UWS is very charming and low key, Park Ave S is, appropriately, more of a business lunch vibe - a huge space, very open, good light, sophisticated. The food was amazing (at both locations). Really, really good and consistent. Lemon and ricotta pancakes, omelets (egg whites), chicken and apple sausage, granola, eggs benedict - everything was great. Service was perfectly good at UWS, but notably excellent at Park Ave South.

    This Sarabeth's is far larger than other locations. Their food is absolutely delicious. Hands down, the best place in NY for brunch. Service is great, sometimes to the point of over zealousness. Best to go around 2 or 3 in afternoon or for dinner. Brunch is delicious, but a mob scene, and it can be noisy. Very nice bar. Looks like it would be great for a party, as they have seperate room in the back that can be closed off from rest of restaurant.

    Have been here for brunch/lunch multiple times and everything from the eggs, salads, drinks, have been great. But the service each time is rather bad...waiter/waitress takes too long to take an order, disappears during the meal and getting a check is next to impossible. If you're in a rush, this is not your place. If you have time to kill, the food (brunch) is worth the lacking service.

    wow, what a surprise and disappointment this place was. totally lacking in charm and ambience, very cold atmosphere and bizarre service. what's more, they are now nickel and diming you to death. every little thing is charged for, and through the teeth. no bread/muffin basket when you sit down. that's now on the menu for $14. amazing. i had a terrible brunch entree with overcooked eggs. the farmer's omelette now has practically no bacon in it. the whole thing was a downer. most definitely would not recommend.

    Sarabeth's has an elegant New York feel to it. Service is excellent and the food is presented beautifully. However, when the check comes there is always a bit of a shock. When I found out that my daughter's lemonade actually cost $5, I did a double take. It was good lemonade - but not $5 good. You are paying for the ambiance and presentation. That might be worth it to you... but it won't be an every week brunch experience for us. Our friends who were visiting from out-of-town were impressed, but very shocked by the prices as well.

    I would have given this place a 5 stars; however the tiny round table for 2 didn't do it for us & my husband waiting for the creamer for his tea is what I call bad service, especially when it was not a busy time for the restaurant. My husband had the vegetable omelette which was perfect. I had the garden salad as a starter & diver scallops with mash, they were both great plates. The food at sarabeth's (any location) always seen to be just right, but there is always something that keep them away from a 5 star. This visit was the small table & waiting for the creamer.

    There are so few restaurants where you can dine quietly in lovely surroundings with a few good friends and feel like you have your own personal waiter, and Sarabeth's is one of them. The other night, I had a perfectly cooked crispy roast chicken, a superb cheese plate and had great service which can be rare in New York's busy, noisy restaurant scene. Although I wasn't crazy about everything on my plate, for example, I thought the gnudi could be better, I would still recommend this restaurant to friends & I intend to return.

    I went for brunch and had a reservation, which I highly recommend. Once seated we waited at least 5 minutes for someone to come to our table. We ordered immediately. Then 40 minutes went by, no food and not once did anyone approach our table to check on us, refill water or my coffee. We were also right next to the server stattion. When a manager came by to ask how we were doing I told her that we had been waiting 45 minutes for our food. She asked what she could do when she should have offered what she could do. As a customer what are you going to ask for? Despite the service the food was good.

    Since this was our first time here and we ate outside, we can't comment on the ambiance indoors, but the street was fairly quiet, the waiter was attentive and the food was FANTASTIC. We will definitely recommend this to our friends and we'll be back. We started with the lump crab and guacamole appetizer, which was attractive and delicious. I had the farm roasted chicken with roasted carrots, artichokes and onions. The portions on the meat was much more than I could eat, so I was sorry we were traveling or I would have taken the rest home. Juiciest chicken I have ever eaten. The vegetables were roasted perfectly with just enough balsamic sauce.

    The food lives up to it's reputation. It's tasty and the portion sizes are more than ample. I would definitely recommend Sara Beth's to people - however, take a jacket and scarf and also a cushion. The air-conditioning is on "arctic" and the chairs are so hard and so uncomfortable. Some seat cushions really would make the experience just that little bit better

    The food was good but not great. the service we received was absolutely horrible. We had a reservation and we were in the restaurant early it wasn't overly busy. There were a lot of open tables. Our waitress took our order but did not refill our coffee nor check in on us. We even had to flag her down to bring us the check and even that seemed to be a bother.

    We were immediately greeted with a happy birthday wish for my friend as mentioned in OpenTable reservation. Started with Four Flowers juice and the chunky Crab Meat Guacomole & chips- addictive. Shared toasted coconut waffles with fresh mango- just melted. Braised short rib hash- more bite-sized chunks- with 2 baked sunny side up eggs- had a good kick from the salsa. My friend enjoyed the lobster roll which happily barely had any mayo allowing the flavor of the lobster to stand out. Not very big but filled with meaty chunks. Sarabeth's added a candle to bday Raspberry Bread Pudding- rich, custardy; raspberry coulis cut sweetness. Overall, everything was excellent! Only semi-CON- service understandably sparse towards dinner prep time.

    As this formerly wonderful institution has replicated, the recipes seem to be a shadow of their formerly wonderful selves. The clone is never as goods the original, and the sequel never as exciting as the original. No personality in food or environment here. Keep going to the Upper West Side venue.

    I do love this restaurants and keep coming back. Their standards are great across their varying locations and it's always clean. We did wind up having to wait about 30 minutes to be seated even though we had a reservation, 15 minutes of those were due to one of our party being late, the other 15 because we couldn't get the attention of the hostess and then had to wait to be seated.

    I tried Sarabeth's after checking multiple reviews across three websites and was not disappointed. They are known for brunch and that it was we had. Be sure to start with the muffin basket, and then go for one of the numerous egg dishes. It's all fresh and creative, good coffee and brunch cocktails as well. There are multiple locations in NYC, and each has a different feel but same menu. This was the Park Avenue South location. I would return.

    Wasn't as pleasant as I had remembered from my first experience. They sat my group of 6 adults at a cramped table for 5. They were huffy when we asked for a more suitable table. They forgot multiple things for multiple peoples orders (even after asking more than once). Coffee needs multitudes of improvement. Wished it would have been more enjoyable, as I had built it up to the rest of my party.
