We had Sunday brunch at the Westside Sarabeth's restaurant. It is a very popular place. We brought along our 20-month-old grandson. They took great care of us including my grandson. When you have a toddler you only have a limited amount of time that they can patiently wait. Sarabeth service was both excellent and prompt which help make for an overall wonderful experience. Finally, the food was great.

One happy grandpa!

Was expecting a mouth watering experience in a quaint, warm setting. In a city with so many culinary options, I won’t be choosing Sarabeth’s again. The physical space was tired, service was so-so, food was adequate but not exceptional. Wasn’t terrible. Just wasn’t amazing. And there are so many places that are.

Hadn’t been here in a while and was impressed. The food was quite good and well prepared. The restaurant is lovely, atmosphere is relaxed, and quiet enough to hear your dinner companions without raising voices. We’ll definitely be back to explore other menu items.

We had a fairly positive experience, but brunch was expensive.

Good food and atmosphere. We had a difficult time finding our waiter so I had to get up and walk my bill to the front desk.
Not a deal breaker.

Sarabeth’s has held up well and the scones are still the best! Unfortunately we were next to a large, very loud group which is not usually the case at brunch. Service was top notch

What has happened to this usually delicious, reliable breakfast spot? Lackluster service, sent back side of bacon that was obviously almost raw and then never returned with cooked bacon, almond French toast had burnt almonds on half of the slices (when I raised this to the waiter, he had no response), watered down coffee. For $50 for 2 people, after years of patronage, it looks like the managers are on auto-pilot.

Punto di riferimento per il brunch newyorkese, proposte alimentari e bevande in linea con il menu di un brunch, presentazione e sapori ottimi: scrambled eggs divine! Da consigliare a tutti coloro che vogliono vivere un'esperienza raffinata. Prezzi medio-alti.

I am sorry to say I found the Cinnamon Apple French Toast lacking this time. The last time I ordered this item was about a year and a half ago. The bread at that time was much thicker and fluffier, first of all. Secondly, I detected no cinnamon flavor at all, and no apples. Only raisins and bananas. I found this French toast to be quite ordinary. Back to the drawing board on this one.

I had lunch at Sarah Beth's with a couple of friends last week. I ordered a spinach cheese omelet. The food was mediocre, the eggs had no taste. Waiters were in a hurry to pick up de dishes before we had put our forks down, we felt rushed. Prices were high. Will not go to this restaurant again.

Awesome food. Everything we ordered was fantastic. I was annoyed that there was no changing table in the bathrooms and had to change my baby on the bathroom counter. The counter was covered in water and had a cut out for the trash. Our waiter also only stopped by twice to check in. I had to ask twice for more napkins and a refill on water. However, that food is so good! Good food will for sure make me come back time and again. Just sad that in NYC it is hard to get good service.

Price to value ratio was rather poor. For the price, the food was not all that good or satisfying. Left feeling pretty disappointed.

It was our first time at Sarabeth’s West and we are fanatic of the Sarabeth’s @ Central Park South.
The food always is incredible and it was very good, but the place was packed yesterday and the service was not good!
The noise of the place made our experience not very suitable and once again we think that during peak hours it is better to have more experience waiters to attend the public.

I went for lunch with a friend and ordered the lobster roll and fries. The roll was skimpy and tasteless. The fries were skinny, cold and tasteless. All together, it was an expensive and lousy meal.
