Went for restaurant week, and for $42 everything was just ok. Not bad, but certaintly not worth what you’ll pay.

It’s always a pleasure to go to Sarabeth’s. The service is excellent. The food is delicious and reliable. If I order something at one location I know I’m gonna love it at other locations. The noise level is such that you can carry on a conversation.

I can't recommend this place anymore because it's so overpriced for the amount and quality of the food. For twenty bucks less, I could've had my fill of food and endless sangria at Calle Ocho two blocks over.

Great service and great food. I had the chefs special burger. It’s a bit messy but PACT with flavor. The restaurant was quite and I really enjoyed the time I spent there. I will definitely go back because the food was amazing and the staff was very kind and attentive. It is a must try and also casual so that’s a plus.

The service was very slow. We were celebrating my father in law's 89th birthday and choose Sarabeths because it's kid friendly (we had a 20 month old with us). The service was extremely slow and the food was mediocre. The staff was friendly, but the food came out much too slowly. The restaurant wasn't crowded. It was 6pm on a Sunday. Really no excuse.

Sarabeth’s is without equal for breakfast and brunch. The omelettes are very good and freshly prepared. I am a long time customer and will visit whenever I am in the city.

My wife and I have been to Sarabeth's West many times, in fact we used SW for our wedding luncheon six years ago. SW is a neighborhood draw and we always see folk waiting for seats.

This time we felt a bit below par. My wife's omelet, egg whites with potato, tomato, leeks, and Gruyère cheese, was skimpy. Refills of coffee were not forthcoming. Our friend, with eggs Benedict, had to ask twice for hollandaise sauce. The "English muffins" had no nooks and crannies.

Now brunch at SW is a busy time, we know. This time, however, we were a bit disappointed.

The food was nowhere near as good as it used to be. That's been my experience for the last three times. One of us had a cheddar omelet and there was hardly any cheddar, just dry omelet. Even the corn muffins weren't moist like they used to be. I don't think we'll go back.

Always excellent service and a festive ambience at this Sarabeth's location. We love the short rib hash, and the fact that you still get a sweet muffin with the savory brunch options is perfect.

Been eating at Sarabeth’s for decades. Needs a refresh. Especially at its prices, it’s losing its competitive edge against other brunch places. Getting routine and not special. Great place but plan to spend $10 more a person than a normal nyc brunch place

I went here on Sunday afternoon for lunch with my boyfriend, and we both loved it! It's a very cute atmosphere, with a garden brunch type atmosphere (almost felt like I was in London). I tried the Four Flowers mimosa, which I'd highly recommend. I ordered the grilled cheese and tomato soup, which was delicious. My boyfriend enjoyed his spinach and goat cheese omelette. We will definitely be back on future trips to NYC!

Typically solid breakfast/brunch performance by Sarabeth's. This was our first visit to their UWS location, and it is just as pleasant, and the food just as good, as the others we've visited. Still feels a teeny bit pricey to us out-of-towners, but (a) this is New York, and (b) the food is very, very tasty. This is not a diner; this is fine-dining applied to traditional breakfast.

Very nice ambiance, great food, great mixed drinks, attentive service without being intrusive. The crab meat guacamole was excellent as was the margarita. Nice neighborhood, reasonably priced, everything about this restaurant was terrific. Would not hesitate to revisit or recommend.

Convinient location and pleasant and cool inside on a hot day. Other than the creamy tomato soup the food did not really impress. The chicken in the ceasar salad was very dry and the omelet was only mediocre.
