    Appetizers were very good but the entrées were mediocre at best. The snapper was poorly prepared and the clams it was served with had cracked shells and were inedible. Would go back to the bar but skip dinner.

    When I decide to go to NYC, I booked this place right away and so excited to have a great breakfast with my family. Place was really new and cool. Foods were fantastic!! But our table was really noisy/messy window side (there is constructing outside) even they have a lots of space with beautiful view. Also when we start to eating,The employee of Sarabeth's began cleaning with the mop next to our table!! I can't believe it their service and attitude. If you don't care thats kind of rough service, you may enjoy there.

    Truly excellent service - the tortellini w/rabe was a bit too al dente and didn't seem homemade - had to ask for extra sauce - served sort've lukewarm. I will definitely return as I love Sarabeth's brunches and it was nice to be in a quiet, spacious space and it's close to home and good for a single dining experience too.

    Sarabeth's is known for brunch, so I thought that dinner may be just as good.... Sadly no. The restaurant was empty for dinner on Sunday night. The food was fine, but not notable. The appetizers were the stand out -- the crab guacamole and pretzel bread were really good. Our entrees were just okay - the seafood pasta as something I could have made at home. The short rib putennexca was disappointing. The short rib was really dry (which is a crime for short rib). The service was fair at best. I'll go back to Sarabeth's, but only for brunch.

    A perfect lunch for two. We were initially seated in the middle of the restaurant, which was quite noisy. We asked to move and were given a booth along the wall which was perfect. Our waitress couldn't have been nicer. Food was quite good, and the prix fixe lunch is a bargain. Will definitely go back.

    My first visit revealed to me a restaurant that cares as much about their food as the ambiance. The menu reflected creative twists to traditional items as well as innovative dishes. Presentation of the food was excellent. The modern decor managed to be warm and welcoming. The wait staff was attentive to detail and returned to the table several times during busy lunch service to ensure all of our needs were met. I have added Sarabeth's to my list of favorites and will definitely recommend it to family and friends.

    The brunch experience was excellent & a memorable one. I really appreciate the staff's attentiveness to my needs as a patron using a power wheelchair and the entrance with both set of doors open, was easily accessible. The setting had an elegant simplicity about it without being ostentatious. Staff was very friendly and the banter highly enjoyable!

    Sarabeth's Park Avenue South did not disappoint. The environment is bright and modern, the service/waitstaff were very nice and attentive, and the food was great. The menu is perfect for an afternoon brunch on the weekend too because they serve breakfast options in the early afternoon. Highly recommend this!

    We had a light meal--shared pizza and a salad and both dishes were outstanding. Atmosphere was very pleasant but most importantly, the noise level was quiet (maybe because it was early) but the tables are spaced appropriately apart. I am becoming so displeased with the level of NOISE in many restaurants these days. I try to avoid noisy restaurants.

    This incarnation of Sarabeth's has moved away from the comfy-cozy-desserty formula and is a bit sleeker and more sophisticated in both food and ambiance, making it an oasis in a neighborhood of steakhouses and pubs. But the subject of my sermon is Karolyne, the world's best waitress. After three visits, we are family. Clearly, the staff here (or at least Karolyne) is well-trained, well-treated, and confident enough to give truly good service. That's what brings me back to a place. New summer menu has some gems as well, including short-rib putanesca and some new fish preparations. One final note: "Flight of Ice Cream Sandwiches." *swoon*

    Dined on 5/6/2013
    I have always loved Sarabeth's for brunch or lunch, and I was eager to visit their newest location on Park Avenue South and 27th Street. I found it particularly unimpressive for dinner. Our server was extremely nice, but hadn't been working there long and wasn't quite familiar with all of the food. The food was overhwelmingly average and surprisingly heavy -- a real departure from the light lunch fare i have always enjoyed. Desert was the best part of the meal. I would recommend Sarabeth's for breakfast lunch or brunch, or also afternoon tea which is a really nice old-school tradition that they do exceptionally well.

    Lovely space but the tables are too close together especially given two empty rooms at the back. Service was not good, bill presented without asking if we wanted dessert or coffee. No dressing on ( good) Cobb salad and when I asked for more it was delivered less than gracefully. Grilled cheese sandwich was unusual, but if not standard grilled cheese there should be a warning on the menu about the pretzel roll, which was not welcome. Food not as good as the UES

    This was my first time dining at a Sarabeths. This is the newest Sarabeth's, in Grammercy park. I found it elegant and sedate, with ample space between tables and cosy booths. And no loud music, which can ruin a restaurant in my opinion. The service was superb; our server, Ronie, was extremely pleasant and enthusiastic. Our entrees--shrimp and grits, and red snapper--were delicious. Desserts were tasty and fun. I would love to go again.

    The food was mediocre and overpriced-especially for what we had. The pizza was soggy; the adult grilled cheese is not grilled done on pretzel bread so basically just sort of pressed, not grilled. Salads not dressed properly. Very disappointing. A far cry from how good the original place on the west side used to be.

We both utterly enjoyed our meals and lingered over coffee and juice. The staff was attentive and the atmosphere was very pleasant. The only suggestion I have is to change from small coffee cups to large mugs! I had to flag down the waiter several times to refill my dinky cup. We will definitely be back

The staff was wonderfully warm and welcoming and made us feel super comfortable.While the food is delish and offers many sophisticated versions of comfort food, it is appropriate to bring children. We ALL really loved this new Sarabeth's -- even more than the uptown one!!! We will be back with and without children.

    Just an awful experience overall. I've been to CPS location years ago and liked it. But this new location has really got to work out the kinks. Waited an hour for our food which was a simple order of french toasts and eggs. Brought out the wrong plate to me TWICE! And the food was nothing special at that price. Ruined my sister's birthday and we had better meals at IHOP for 1/5 the price.

    A group of 7 friends went to dinner at Sarabeth's Park Ave. The restaurant is big and we didnt feel cramped or on top of the table to next to us which was nice. The service was OK. The runners were very attentive, constantly filling up our waters and clearing our table without rushing. Our waitress on teh other hand was not very present. After seeing a neighboring table sit down after us and get bread baskets we had to request it, at which point she kind of laughed at us. She didnt check on us after our food was brought out. The food was just ok, nothing terrible but nothing great- lacking flavor and not worth the price at all. I am not sure I will be back for dinner here.
