Overall the pancake, French toast and omelette we ordered for breakfast were delicious. The Chicken Apple sausages were dry. Nice homey ambiance for a get together with friends. Service was attentive and courteous. Would definitely go back when we’re back in NYC.

We had.a very mixed experience. When we arrived we were shown to a very nice booth for two people. The hostess said she thought we would like it very much and she was right. We ordered two dishes, the seafood Cobb salad and -fried ricotta gnocchi. When I asked for fresh ground black pepper to go with the gnocchi I was told there is pepper in the shaker on the table we don’t have a pepper grinder.. The seafood Cobb salad was quite good with a lot of fresh seafood and avocado. On the other hand, the gnocchi was extremely disappointing. The gnocchi and shells was mash potatoes that have been lightly pan fried, the Ricardo was undetectable house was the truffle oil in the sauce.
From the time we were served until we finished eating, nobody stop by the table to see how we were doing. Finally someone came over and I told her about the gnocchi, which I had only eaten a very small amount of. She apologized and comped the price which was appreciated. We then ordered the caramelized banana sundae which was extremely good.
They could do a lot to improve the level of service and perhaps I was just unlucky with the dish I ordered.

Sarabeth's is a go to when we are in NYC to feed our nostalgia. We had a large party for brunch on a Sunday am. It was packed. There was also a wedding party. The tables we were seated at were right by the door so waiting customers were right behind us. This made for a loud brunch as well as a bit of bumping. The food was very good but prices are high! Service was meh....mostly because of the overcrowding. We asked for separate bills but it was consolidated. I do recommend if you have never been but if I still lived in the city, I might choose a different location.

Brakfast at Sarabeth’s was probably the best meal we had. Highly recommend the goldie lox and chicken/apple sausage. Salmon eggs benedict was great. Coffee is great too. Service fast and attentive. Perfect spot before the American Museum of Natural History.

Lovely small areas to dine. I was disappointed there was no pumpkin waffle! The service was on point. Would have enjoyed a small offering served while waiting on your food, like a mini muffin with Sarabeth famous preserves. Overall was lovely.

All 3 of us enjoyed our lunches. Food was delicious, good quality and quantity. Our waitress was fantastic, informative, quick, fun to speak to. Our table was comfortable in the back area. The $26 prix fixe is an excellent value. I would suggest that the online website be updated-prices and menu selections are wrong.

We have been coming to sarabeths for years specifically for the potato waffles. When we gave our order, the waiter told us the waffle maker was broken. This was quite frustrating traveling from nj for this specific menu item; but what made it worse, when we left about 45 minutes ago we saw someone being served potato waffles. It was never mentioned after the fact that perhaps they got the waffle maker up and running. I expect better from this establishment especially for the 22 dollar brunch item! Other than that the food was very good and service decent.

Overall, very pleasant dining experience. Food was well prepared. Wine was enjoyable. Service was well paced and courteous. Wasn't crazy about table - near door and cold draft. I expected better given with a reservation and not a full crowd. Recommend the Key West location also, if traveling in that area.

I prefer Sarabeth’s for breakfast and brunch. There were limited offerings on the dinner prix fix menu. Food was good. Tomato soup was the best ever. Still a limited dinner menu. Noise level was quite loud

Egg and kale salad is delicious with a very generous side of scrumptious toast with lovely jams and butter. Server very nice.
Unfortunately, the pot of hot water leaked and spilled over the side of the table and on to my leg- ouch!
Seems like the place needs a bit of a paint job. And the food isn’t cheap!
