Diner Reviews
  • "it was in upper east side. expected some elegant and comfortable brunch time but the reality was that it was just crowded and the service was not remarkable. the food? egg benedict was so famous but when i tried some, i felt the one i had eaten at hotel was better."

  • "I was with a group of 4 people and we really enjoyed the ambience, the food was very good and well prepared, the service was wonderful and it was on overall good dining experience. It was fun to buy cookies and jellies after we paid for our meal."

  • "Sarabeth's reputation for quality bit the dust years ago. Biting dust is exactly what eating their muffins is like. Yes, the jams and preserves are excellent, but any diner will give you better food."

  • "We enjoyed the food. The chicken pot pie was terrific and the service was great on a Saturday night."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Our dinner was good and we were looking for a quiet private table and were accommodated. I recommend the restaurant for dinner, lunch or brunch. It's a great neighborhood choice."

  • "Sarabeth's remains a reliable Upper Eastside restaurant. Its menu was improved, and included a delicious Seafood Cobb - with a good mix of crab, lobster, shrimp. We also had Almond-Crusted Chicken - somewhat bland but well-cooked. However, the chicken was served with mashed sweet potatoes and sunchokes ("Jerusalem artichoke") both high in carbs. Service was very good. Sarabeth's also serves unlimited bottled water - flat or sparkling - for $3 per person, a good deal. The upholstery at a large banquette is ripped and seems badly in need of repairs - but that didn't appear to bother a large family who occupied the large table without hesitation. We'll be back."

  • "Long wait. Food very good but not as outstanding as aspected from such famous place."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "loud kids all over this restaurant. Décor is in desperate need of an overhaul with ripped seats on the banquet next to us. The bathrooms were filthy as well which is reason enough to never return."

  • "Went for dinner with a few friends on a Friday night after going to the Met. Good food. Moderately priced (40 dollars a person entree and dessert)"
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "A pleasant experience on a Thursday night. Our only complaint was that the lobster was too dry -- a bit overcooked with lemon as the only "moisturizer" available. We will return and try again another evening. "

  • "Booked a table for dinner after enjoying many wonderful brunches here. The dinner menu was also very good. Can't wait to return!"

  • "My friend and I had never been to Sarabeth's. The restaurant was full yet quiet. The service and the food were excellent. "
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Three course lobster dinner for $39 dollars!! Outstanding duck entree also very reasonably priced and the fresh catch of the day was superb. We had a party of 5 and some were late. The server and hostess were very understanding and gracious (it was a Tuesday night, but still pretty busy). Our waitress was very attentive and great at guiding all of us first-timers to Sarabeth's to starters and appetizers that we really enjoyed. "

  • "Every time we go to NY, we will go there. The service. The location. The food. We love it!"
    Dined on 5/12/2014
  • "It's an institution for uptown WASPs, with a well-earned reputation for its cookies and reliability. Its food is bland as can be, like pasta without a hint of garlic or a lobster roll drowned in mayo, but its clientele loves it that way, so who am I to complain? Prices are very high for what it serves. We were seated 15 minutes after the reservation time, and a waiter came to see us only after another 20 minutes, which is unacceptable. Think of it as a restaurant in a wealthy Connecticut suburb that some people are glad to find in Manhattan. "

  • "Sarabeth's is our go-to breakfast and lunch spot when we are in town."
    Dined on 5/7/2014
  • "Kid-friendly and nice servers. Food overpriced and just OK. Dishes are not quite pulled together enough to succeed."
    Dined on 5/7/2014
  • "A Lovely comfortable restaurant in a refurbished old space that brings you back to an earlier time. Incredible tomato soup, great food and amazing cookies for desert with (relatively) reasonable prices for NYC!"
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "Food always delicious, but not enough vegetarian options. Even veggie risotto made with chicken stock!"
    Dined on 5/1/2014
  • "Great neighborhood spot for a quick bite with some friends, or even when alone. We had dinner at Sarabeth's upon recommendation from the 92Y website, and it was a great find. A true neighborhood gem, I noticed the host and servers knew some of the customers, but also made new faces feel right at home. Reasonable prix fixe too!"

  • "Overall glad my out-of-town friend asked to meet at SaraBeth's Upper East Side.. We reschedulead a midweek lunch reservation to the start of Tea Time.,3:30, so entered a near-empty room, with choice of Tea of Lunch menu. Friendly welcome to large, comfortable round padded booth. By 4:30 there were perhaps a half dozen other diners. My omelette was fluffy but somewhat dull with very fresh feta cheese and spinach but no other flavors/herbs detectable. Corn muffin hard + dry. Sarabeth gourmet jam DELICIOUS as always - I often buy it here in NYC. Service was inattentive. In a nearly empty room, should not have to remind to fill water and coffee during a meal! BEST FEATURE: quiet spacious room. We could talk softly not out-shout music."

  • "We started our day at Sarabeth's on our son's 10th birthday. We made a reservation for 8:30am and were glad that we did. Food options were there for everyone (full breakfast, muffin and homemade jams, pancakes, yogourt etc...). Service was not rushed, despite the line up of people waiting for a table, and everything was fresh and nicely presented. We will definitely return to one of Sarabeth's locations when we go back to NY!"

  • "Completely satisfied with our breakfast. I have the Goldie lox... Scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and cream cheese all mixed together. It was a great combination. Triple-decker English muffin with sarabeth's strawberry preserves was great too. My wife enjoyed her French toast. An excellent pre-museum meal!"

  • "A party there made it much noisier than usual and less pleasant"
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "If you want a nice breakfast/lunch spot on the UES during the week. This is the place. Great menu, great service! Try the passion fruit iced tea it's amazing!"
    Dined on 4/9/2014
  • "The only criticism is the unnecessary noise principally generated by celebrating groups. Many women literally scream. The staff should politely control this better."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "A wonderful range of interesting and different breakfast items all cooked with fresh ingredients and high quality. Upper West Side location is a bit cramped and service, while friendly, is not great. Fabulous muffins and scones make up for any glitches in service."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Great Brunch. It's pricey but for special ocasions it's perfect. Food and service were great. Try the pancakes!"
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "This is the best of all the Sarabeths in town, and it's nice to get a good dnner there too. It's near Mt. Sinai, and if you have to be there, this is a good place to eat. Very good turkey burger."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "Now that there are Sarabeth's popping up all over the place - it is no wonder that there are lines out the door. But as far as a more civilized experience - the Upper East Side is the one to go to. I've been to several and while they are all delicious and welcoming (they never rush you out - even when there are tons of people waiting) - the dining experience on the UWS is wonderful. Again, it was my restaurant of choice when going to see a show at the 92nd Street Y. Luckily I had the same server that I had last time I was there - and she is amazing. She innately knows when to show up and when not to. I think this restaurant has a more intimate feeling than the others I've been to. The deserts are sublime - the Bread Puddding!!!"

  • "Reasonably priced, well cooked food. Great service from waiter and busboy. My date loved their shrimp, while I loved the walnut encrusted chicken with sweet potato puree and cooked artichokes. A short wait for table AND the food."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "I have always enjoyed eating at Sarabeth's East. The food is very good and service matches it. I go there believe or not for the 'Liver' that I find they cook and garnish to perfection. I would eat there more often if it was not for their noise level. You won't be disappointed with the meal you just may not hear what someone says sitting across from you."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Hard to describe why this place is do delightful. It's comfortable and relaxing, but not frumpy. Service is warm, friendly and right on the money. The menu is interesting and delicious. Always responsive to dietary requirements and preferences. It's like homemade food that I wish my mother would make!"

  • "We have been to other Sarabeth's locations and have liked them all. This interior is just lovely with much architectural character. The Restaurant Week menu was excellent, and we were very surprised at the large portions of each course. A memorable evening!"

  • "Since our daughter is called Sara Elizabeth, we've been waiting for an occasion to take her to Sarabeth's. Finally went when my parents were in town, for an early weekend breakfast (the only time that was open for weeks)... Food and service was great. However, my parents felt rushed, because there were so many people already waiting for a table, so it wasn't really a relaxed atmosphere. It was fine for us, because the baby wasn't going to sit still for much longer, but nothing for people who are looking for a drawn-out, lazy weekend brunch."

  • "Sarabeth's lived up to its reputation as being a wonderful family-friendly restaurant. Menu was great. Very good service. My salmon was delicious and the waiter allowed me to substitute potatoes for the couscous. My son's burger was huge and perfectly grilled. We skipped desert and bought cookies from their bakery. Wonderful! We'll be back!"

  • "I love Sarabeths so much this last trip to NYC I went to the only one I had never been to Sarabeths East and decided it is my most favorite location. The service, the food is always A+++++. There is something for everyone. It is absolute perfection."
