    We came for an early brunch and we glad we did, as the place was packed by the time we left. The lemon-ricotta pancakes were great, and the chorizo and pepper frittata got good reviews too.

    We had 9 people in our party for brunch and return two days later for breakfast. The group meal went well, the food was very tasty and the prices were typical of New York, brunch and regular breakfast was the same, a la carte. The service on the other hand was slowww. We asked for a mimosa, toast bread, extra syrup and it all came after the meals were finished. The waiter walked by a few times but never asked if we needed anything. We went back a second time since the food that we did get was good, but the service was even slower. Will not go back again. Not recommended.

    I have heard about Sarabeth's food from a few friends, so I am happy about this new location, which is very close to where I work. I went on my own for breakfast and was sitting at the bar. The bartender was very polite and during the whole meal asked me if I needed anything. Food was delightful. I especially liked the atmosphere where people were casually talking and feeling relaxed.

    anville3VIP
    Dined on 7/4/2013
    I ordered the salmon benedict and received what I can confidently call was the worst breakfast I've had in months; the eggs were poorly cooked, the English muffin was dry and crumbly, there was NO Hollandaise sauce, and the salmon was mediocre at best. The side salad (which I didn't want or know what coming) was soaked in dressing that was terrible. The waiter cleared my plate while my girlfriend was still eating - very rude and inappropriate. Food was awful, service does not know how to treat guests, and the room was cold.

    I have been to Sarabeth's several times since it's opening, yet yesterday the service was terrible. It took forever for our waiter to take our order and once the food came (after quite some time) we never saw our waiter again. Had to flag someone down to get the check. I was dining with a client and this did not look good.

    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*

    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.
