Diner Reviews
  • "This is the place for breakfast in NYC. Great location, good food, excellent selection."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Our server was friendly and all but I found the service to be a little rushed. The server did not ask us if we needed anything else before she prematurely and quickly brought us the bill."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "we've been to Sarabeth's in central park and prefer that restaurant. For such a new restaurant the cleanliness was expected to be better. There was food on the chairs and the floor. The bathrooms were only moderately clean. I had greater expectations given the number of staff at the restaurant. The food was ok - the quality was no different than a diner which is really half the price. There happened to be screaming children during our brunch."

  • "We made a reservation for 2 at 12:45 on a Saturday - we arrived at 12:42 and they said, it's not time yet, wait 3 mins. We waited and waited and finally said something when we were not seated at 12:55. Then she said give us another 2-3 mins. Then that took another 10 mins. by the end, we waited more than 1/2 hour for the table. They asked oh, we have a table outside if you want to be seated immediately. Once I said no, we prefer a table inside, somehow they miraculously had a table for us. We use to love Sarabeth's and would trek to the UWS for their Red Omlette, we didn't mind the wait because they almost always gave perfect time estimates. But with the menu change and not honoring their time commitments. it's just not worth it anymore"

  • "This place was recommended to me by a friend that went when he visited NYC w his family. We chose the Park Ave one as its closer. The rest was nicely decorated and the ambience for a brunch felt surprisingly romantic. Our sever was excellent and on top of our order. We never had an empty cup of coffee. I order the fat and fluffy french toast which were delicious and my fb ordered the scramble egg stuffed popovers and both were delicious. Portions were good so we share. Hope our next time here continues to be the as good as our first time in this Manhattan spot."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "the restaurant has great food, ambiance and service. Coffee and pastries were outrageous"
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "Sarabeth's knows brunch. Their location on Park Avenue South has perfected the ambience, food, and service that New Yorkers expect for brunch. Pretty much the complete package, from the delicious Bloody Marys to the bread basket with jams to the perfectly poached Eggs Benedict and fluffy pancakes. The space is huge, so you can be seated as soon as you arrive, a refreshing contrast to the Central Park South location."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Ambiance was great...overpriced for the quality of food..but overall, we were satisfied with our choice at dinning here, though I doubt we will be going back."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Good news is reservations on Open Table worked so our wait was only 15 minutes (not 45) and it's a large place, lots of tables and good location but the food was only so-so and waitstaff was a little distracted. Don't get crab Benedict (frozen machine made crab cake patty dropped into the fryer and over cooked at that). No muffin baskets available. A bit of a disappointment. Just not the same as uptown."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Great everything .... Sunday Brunch was excellent but beware the crowds... Make sure you have a reservation and be prepared to wait!"
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Excellent food and service. Love those scrambled eggs made with cream cheese and lox. Restaurant is beautiful and well maintained. The experience is most favorable."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Great brunch selection, great service, good coffee...fun!"
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "Menu was great. Food was excellent. Service was choppy. Server came several times asking if we were ready to order, within first 15 minutes we sat down. The table was not cleared of the first course, when server brought next course. Server also took silverware and did not replace them. We had to get up to find some. Nice jazz music and attractive restaurant."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "This place is excellent. Every time I go I try something new off the menu and it has all been delicious. Prices are reasonable for the food you are getting and the decor and atmosphere is perfect for dining with friends, corporate outings or something romantic. They also have outside seating for those beautiful NYC days and nights. I highly recommend trying it!"

  • "Had a lovely Sunday brunch at Sarabeths. The food was very good (coconut waffle and jalapeno/cheese omelet), though it wasn't outstanding in terms of being something extra special. The service was fine, though the servers were very busy, and thus we had to flag down our waitress when we needed something. The tables are also very close together so you sit very close and cozy with other diners, but it's a popular place with lots of folks dining. I did notice that they have a separate area for large parties, such as a special occasion gathering. I might go again sometime to try their lunch menu. It's a nice, bright place to meet friends and overall I'd say give it a try."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "A friend and i went to Sarabeths for mid week brunch and it was awesome. you have to try the coconut/mango waffles, they were incredible - just melted in my mouth. the service was soooooo good, very attentive and friendly. i can't wait to go back"
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "The food is very good and the service is great too - they are all very very nice. A little slow though when it fills up a bit. Great spot for breakfast or lunch - especially meeting clients as it is classy, notable and convenient."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "Pro: I made a reservation and was seated promptly Con: when my food arrived it had a hair in it (serving staff took it away and then came back with a "new" plate suspiciously quickly - We ordered drinks and 2/3 arrived. We had to ask for the beer from 4 different people - Waitress seemed flustered and tried to apologize, but didn't really say much Overall very odd experience. Do not think I will be coming back."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "We first went to Sarabeth's on Amsterdam Avenue years ago waiting to board for a cruise. We had a wonderful breakfast. Since then we've been to the Tribeca location for breakfast, also great, and back to Amsterdam Avenue for breakfast, dinner and Park Avenue south for breakfast. All were perfect meals. Came home and ordered Sarabeth's cookbook. Can't wait to go back to NY to go to Sarabeth's again!"
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "One of the best places in NYC for a quiet brunch with great food. Definitely recommend!"
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "I read great reviews for this place and went there based on them but frankly was under-whelmed. Booth was dirty with crumbs. "Signature" expensive bloody mary was watery and not memorable. The food was ok but honestly not something that was worth returning for in the future."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Usually the place is spot on. Had the seafood Cobb salad and so did my friend Lindsay. We were both in the can exploding within an hour (separately). Felt much better after it came out though. "
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Service isn't great. Think it's a "system" issue. There is one person who takes the order, but other people bring it out, and they don't get specifics of order. If wait person were to bring food out themselves, they might notice that the extra basil one asked for on the pizza was missed, or that the sauce requested with the crabcake was forgotten. Crabcake was good, but a little fishy. I asked for it served on a salad, vs. as a sandwich. The lettuce of chopped so fine, I could barely taste it (definitely not crunchy). Pizza was nothing special. Crust was a bit soggy. Just one type of cheese, and four pieces of basil. Seems brunch is alot more together, when it comes to the food. Evening is quieter, but food isn't up to par."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "A few friends of mine were in town to celebrate my birthday and, having heard great things, we decided to stop by Sarabeth's for brunch. To say the food was good would be an understatement -- everything was perfect. The friendliness of our waiter made the dining experience all the better. Great experience overall!"
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "Compares to the other locations, this spot was lacking, to say the least. Service was not good at all!! My sparkling water had black things floating in it. My drink lacked juice and was all alcohol. Waffle was a soggy, floppy failure. The plating/presentation looked worse than how I'd prepare it at home. I always get the same thing and I've never seen it look so ...sad. The waiter(s?) rushed us out. We never got a name and saw different people the entire time. I'd stick to the other locations!"
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "I went for brunch with a friend who is pregnant and we ordered the apple cinnamon french toast as an appetizer LOL! It was absolutely amazing, I never had something so tasty. The kale and eggs was excellent as well. The food was great, however the service is very slow. Surprisingly enough they have a lot of staff but they seem to wonder around confused. It took them awhile to bring water and coffee and even longer to take an order, good thing my friend didn't deliver! However the food made up for it."
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "Had brunch with my girls, must say it was an overall awesome experience. The Almond crusted raspberry French Toast is AMAZING!"

  • "The brunch was fine, the restaurant was fine, the server was awesome, nothing spectacular, just a solid meal. They met my expectations perfectly."

  • "This is right below my office but I would walk a couple of miles to get here too. Absolutely great food and ambience."
    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 5/26/2014
  • "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. "

  • "Nice people, but each server must have like 30 tables because you never see them and you end up waiting around for anything. It's a mess. Unorganized. . But the food is petty good. "
    Dined on 5/26/2014
  • "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. "
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "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. "
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "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."

  • "We had dinner on Saturday night and the restaurant was surprisingly almost empty, which is a shame. The food was good and the service great."

  • "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."
