The Lemon Ricotta pancakes were superb! Great service and the ambiance was charming. I would definitely go back.

We had a lovely brunch. The food was delicious as always. I had the short rib hash and my friends had pancakes and French toast. They hadn't been before and would definitely come again.

We didn’t have a great experience. The food was fine. The service was fine. But there was nothing special. I won’t go back.

フレーチトーストはとてもボリューミーでおいしかったですが、味を染み込ませるのが多少足りないかなと思いました。雰囲気もとっても素敵なカフェでした💕

We came in late (9:00 pm) for dinner. It was terrific. I had the steak frites which was excellent--especially the french fries. Everyone in my party was happy with their entree choices, too. The bread basket with muffins was warm and tasty. Also, I enjoyed a berry margarita from the cocktail menu. Thank you to the waitress who stayed late and didn't rush us. She was the best!

Still serves the best Bloody Mary's in the world! A great place to meet a friend for lunch. Well-thought-out menu; tasty food. My go-to place on the UWS.

Classic UWS establishment. Can’t go wrong with breakfast foods. Salmon was cooked well but nothing special.

The food wasn’t as good as I had remembered it. Also the pricing was too high for what you got.

Food was really good. Service was beyond terrible. Had to wait 20 minutes just get a drink order. Ordered drinks and food together. Food came out 45 minutes after our drinks then we had to wait another 20 minutes after we were done eating for the bill. If it wasn’t for my wife wanting to stay I would have left in the first ten minutes. I’m still not sure who our waiter was.

Food very disappointing, especially at this price point. Reminded me of airline food. Skirt steak ($30) was about a 4 oz size. Lobster bisque served barely lukewarm and had to be sent back. We left hungry and will not return.

Sarabeth’s is a dependable UWS haunt. Been here for years and always (somehow) comes through. This Valentine’s Day the roses were a particularly nice touch.

The only down moment -- of course there was one -- was how we were treated after objecting to being led to a table by the kitchen door. After a vehement argument, in which the Maître d’ tried to justify himself by convincing us that people “LIKE” to sit there, we were redirected to a perfectly nice table. One closer in to the main dining area and clearly visible as we sailed by it on our way to the back.

Sir,
