    Farmer’s omelette not to be missed - very generous portions. Eggs Benedict excellent as well. Popovers were a nice way to start the meal - light and airy .. excellent with their jams and marmalade. Service was attentive but not overbearing - just right. Neighborhood parking a challenge .. so if you happen to drive - try to scout out a garage that won’t fleece you 😫!

    The food was delayed and severed cold. We ordered pancakes and pop overs that were not warm enough to make butter soft, let alone melt. The coffee was cold too. It was not very good at all.

    We reserves a table for 5 and they seated us next to the front door next to many strollers. We were forgotten on the corner and it was really cold. We were there for a friends bday. They forget to serve one of us and brought our her lunch after everyone else had finished. We did not have a good experience

    8:45 AM on a Sunday morning: My husband and son went for the eggs Benedict, regular and lox, both excellent. I ordered wild mushroom scrambled eggs with a popover. The eggs were a revelation - cooked precisely to order with tons of sliced mushrooms, some green onions, and just enough Boursin to make it creamy but not at all cheesy. Best eggs ever. Popover, coffee, juices all great. Service was quick, friendly, and attentive. Worth getting up early for.

    Made a reservation for breakfast since the restaurant is near the Museum of Natural History. My reservation was for 9 am for an indoor table (cold outside!) and was confirmed through the Open Table app. I got a message/reminder the night before that the reservation was for 8:30 am. No worries, we got there early. When we arrived (to a nearly empty restaurant) the hostess announced in a loud voice that since we didn’t specify indoor dining (not true) with our reservation we could either sit at the bar or sit outside! In the 40 degree cold. So we sat at the bar, humiliated. It was extremely cold at the bar since we were right near the front door. The restaurant was not very crowded. Breakfast was good , but expensive, as to be expected. Our bill for two (just eggs and bacon, no alcohol) was $100. I would not have minded any of this except the hostess really ruined the whole experience. She was rude, loud, and condescending. She treated another customer who came in after me the same way and they left.

    This is a tried and true favorite of my family and we were very disappointed today. The coffee was terrible - undrinkable, and the famous baked goods - muffins, scones, etc were cold and extremely dry. The bathrooms were filthy and overall the restaurant did not feel clean.

    Service and food were great. But the "experience" is not what it used to be since they no longer offer many menu items, to reduced portions/selections.

    This restaurant has stood the rest of time, and for good reason. Not only does it have good value and a capable and welcoming staff (cheers to George, Michelle, the hostess and the manager!), but the food is reliably excellent, from standbys like the perfect chicken pot pie and steak frites to innovations (relatively speaking) like Parmesan coated chicken breast. Dinner is much less crowded than the famous breakfast and brunch, especially on weekends, but it’s a solid lunch and dinner choice, especially on Wednesdays ($25/bottle wine) and Thursdays (jazz).

    Great food as always, but my order was wrong initially. It was immediately fixed, which was great, but this isn't the first time that's happened to me at Sarabeth's, and I wish they'd please pay attention to what I ask for when I place an order.

    I have been a guest since the late 1980’s Sarabeths was always a destination for out of town guests. First time back since the pandemic and the tomato soup was awful. The grilled cheese was kept under a heat lamp or made hours ahead it was dry and tasteless. Our server was never to be found after the food was dropped no water refill or iced tea refill. The last straw was the remark “could you pay your bill so I can go home” I was really disappointed. I don’t think I will ever return.

    Food was delicious but the experience is diminished. Things like fresh baked scones at the table? Nope. Iced tea and soda pitchers? Not anymore. Guacamole and that fancy ketchup with your burger? Not happening. Service also a bit off but friendly! Did not acknowledge special occasion though they asked.

    Always enjoyable but last night it appears they did not have the air conditioning on as it was very warm inside. I would also say the service was not great considering there were 2 wait persons and not many occupied tables Price wise, a $24 burger is expensive All tolled, I continue to be a happy, regular here

    I went for Restaurant Week, deciding to go for dinner because of the BBQ Lamb Shank, instead of my usual lunch visit. Turned out well worth it as it was so tender and delicious. The watermelon crab salad was cool and tasty and the dessert, a banana split sundae, was just terrific and a fitting end to a great meal! Service was excellent. I went early so there was no waiting or delays. A wonderful experience and can't wait to go back!

    Been here many times. Omelette was disgraceful in addition to not being correct. It was replaced and was much better. However, lately at CPS & Westside locations I’ve experienced the same thing. The omelettes are not being prepared the way they used to be. Whomever is doing the cooking doesn’t care. It’s a pity.

    Sarabeth's is utterly reliable for good food and nice waitstaff. Clientele of all ages, predominantly white, varied types but mostly upper middle class in appearance. The food is imaginative. Interior steps; bathrooms down a steep flight of stairs. Best for lunch, I think, although it never disappoints for any meal.

    We waited a bit long to order food even though there were not that many people We got the silverware but not napkins so we had to ask for them in the middle of the meal. Food was great! Way too pricey for eggs and French toast. Smoothies are very expensive as well. Definitely not a weekly brunch for the price for me . But I love the food and the restaurant

    This was our first visit to Sarabeth’s. What a treat! I realized I had just received a jar of her jam from a friend. In addition, I connected the dots - one of my favorite cookbooks is Sarabeth’s- I love it and now to be in her restaurant! The food was great. The waitress was wonderful! A perfect evening- so perfect that we returned Yesterday (Monday) with my daughter and two granddaughters for lunch. I only wish you had a restaurant in Chicago!
