We were looking forward to our dinner at Sarabeth’s as it was on a recommendation from a friend. We’d reserved a table for 5; when we arrived there was only a table for 4 available so they gave us an extra chair. We sat down and our glasses were filled with water. We then waited 15 mins before a waiter approached our table and then asked what we wanted to eat. He then realized we hadn’t been given any menus! He brought the adult menus but we then had to ask for the kids menus.
Seafood Cobb salad was great, couldn’t complain about that. The fish & chips was so so according to my husband. The kids’ meals were fine apart from my daughter’s grilled cheese. The bread was hard and the cheese hadn’t been melted, just slightly warmed up and congealed, it looked horrible so she left it and it was taken off the check.
Altogether a disappointing experience. Shame because there’s definitely a nice atmosphere there, but the service let it down terribly.

Sarabet's has been a favorite for my wife and I ever since we had our wedding reception at this specific restaurant nearly seven years ago. The fact that we are back here is a testament to quality and service.

Wednesday nights have jazz playing in the restaurant. They had been on Thursday, but have moved to Wednesday.

Sarabeth's does great guns for the lunch / brunch crowd. Dinnertime is generally quieter, and we like that.

Tuna tacos were tasty but super messy, I would use a different shell (other then Taro chips).

Steak was amazing as we the truffle fries :)

Delicious and totally indulgent meal. Wednesdays have live jazz (💕💕) and half off wines — got a delicious premiere Cru burgundy for only $40. But the menu listed 2014 (the best year for the particular wine) when they actually only carried 2015. Small typo and a medium disappointment easily overshadowed by excellent food.

They were out of banana muffins. The cranberry one that came was small. Also small coffee cups for cappuccino. Mediocre omelet. No sides.
They forgot my friend’s order. While I was eating mine (so it would be warm), we had to remind several service people to bring it.
Then they sat a hyperactive little bit next to us who promptly began dropping things on the floor.
Overall mediocre at best. What a disappointment after all the hype.

The only good thing was the company I came with. Food was average at best. The hostess rolled her eyes at me for asking for a high chair for my 16 month old god son. The waiter never checked in on food. The food took forever to come out. Overall, I would not eat here again.

We love Sarabeths, however we had never been to this particular location. And it was lovely. Smaller than Central Park, but really made it more ideal. More neighborly. The food was excellent, as always. Eggs benedict, and the lemon ricotta pancakes. (which are a MUST) We get the Four Flowers Mimosas, and loved every sip. They are a bit on the sweeter side, but the Four Flowers juice is their own, and its wonderful.

A definite stop if you're able to make a reservation or wait for a table. loved it.

We made a reservation to Sarabeth at 2:45 and was seated approximately 2:50. The waiter instantly came over and asked if we’d like any drinks. I got the iced tea and my dad got the orange juice. He came back again to take our orders. We were not ready, but never felt rushed or anything. When we were ready, he came over and was super attentive to our questions on the menu. Overall, the service and food were amazing. I’d definitely come again.

We started with the guacamole and crab appetizer. Crispy chips, fresh guac, radish. Yum. Even the pickiest of our family loved it. I had the tuna sandwich. I loved the flavor. Very fresh and tasty. My son had the lemon/cheese pancakes. Delicious. Highly recommend. One of our favorite stops in NY. Knowledgeable staff and friendly.
