Fantastic restaurant! We always eat at Sarabeth’s when we come into town. It is delicious. Must try the crab cake Benedict and Lemon Ricotta Pancakes.

We were in NYC for 3 full days and visited Sarabeth’s twice. It’s a staple for us on every trip.

Had the Crab Cakes Benedict and enjoyed every bite. The servers were incredibly attentive and even though the restaurant was packed, we didn’t have to wait very long for our food.

We were last in NYC in 2014 and on the recommendation of a local came to Sara Beth’s for their lemon ricotta pancakes and Bloody Mary. We are here again in 2019 with our little girls and wanted to come back. They said they were the most delicious pancakes they’ve ever eaten. Valerie was a wonderful waitress

We had a delightful meal that ended with a surprise note of a black out just as dessert menus were coming our way. Once the extent of the problem was identified staff made it known dessert could not be served. Everyone went out of their way to apologize . As we left, Johnny announced he was sorry he couldn’t deliver the birthday cake we’d ordered for our granddaughter. It made her evening, and ours.

I ordered the cavatelli with mushrooms!
I asked the waiter how it was prepared, he first told me that it was made with red wine!
I said that mushroom cannot be prepared with red wine, then he proceded to tell me, that actually it was prepared with white wine.
Sadly, I ordered the dish.
What I received was pasta drowned in tomato sauce or maybe in your signature tomato soup with maybe 2 tiny pieces of mushroom!
It was unedible!!! And not what I had ordered!
It was not the 1st time I was at your restaurant
The chef should not take the customers on a ride, thinking he can away with it!

Overall the food was just OK. I personally thought that they could try harder and they came over a little lazy with the food menu and presentation.
Service was ok, although drinks placed on edge of table, and my wife being asked if she’d just gone to the toilet as she was away from the table for 5 mins I thought was a little strange....

My daughter and I had a lovely meal. I would have preferred to not be seated in the middle of a row of small tables along a wall that was half booth. The people next to us were on there phones and a bit loud. Otherwise the service and good were exactly what I expected and we would definitely recommend it to friends.

I remember when Sarabeth's was merely one Upper Westside restaurant. The CPS iteration is just as good as my memory with scrumptious muffins and a great selection of healthy and/or indulgent foods. Also, my breakfast lasted almost two hours and no staff person made us feel unwelcome at any time.

This was perfect for a breakfast with friends. Vast selection and prompt service.
Some parts of the restaurant can get a little noisy due to the absence of fabric.

When we arrived the maitre d looked annoyed that he needed to look for our reservation. He then looked around the restaurant and didn't know where to put us as if we were inconveniencing him.
Once we were eating our dinner the busboy made a big show of changing the table cloths and setting the tables all around us, 4 tables to be exact. I thought we were going to get hit with a table cloth. The clashing of dishes, silverware and glasses as he was setting the table was disconcerting while we were trying to have a conversation over dinner. When the empty tables were finally set, someone else came by to slightly re-position the newly set tables. I wanted to ask, "Are they acceptable now? You may need to move them again a 1/2 inch."
When the dinner was over my son requested to take his food home. We left the restaurant and he realized he forgot his food. When he went back into the restaurant no one knew what he was talking about and did not seem concerned that they misunderstood that he wanted to take home his meal. They were dismissive to his request.
As far as the dinner, 34.00 for 5 ravioli is absurd and they tasted as if they were cooked from frozen. The edges where all hard. 100.00 dollars for one glass of house wine, one appetizer, 2 plates of food. No coffee, no dessert, no extra drinks. I would never recommend this experience to anyone.

The food was very good, but the waiter's attitude was rather unsatisfactory. While he was relatively friendlier to the customer next to my table mentioning "have a nice day", he didn't mention anything like that to me. What's more, none of the waitresses or waiters said "thank you" or "goodbye". I just left the restaurant being ignored.

Food was average, service was not good ....and with the amount the restaurant was charging per plate, was amazed that they were busy handing over the cheque as fast as possible so that the next guests could get the table ! Very disappointing. Will never come back ....

Sitting across Central Park South, one knows that you will be paying for that privilege. Nothing that special on the menu. My roasted Chicken salad was flavorful and well seasoned but more chopped up
like an asian salad. I was assuming more marketplace with the market vegetables. Fun to people watch as you sit outside and enjoy your meal. I remember Sarabeth's from yesteryear's and worried she might
be getting tired.

Great spot for a quick but quality meal - not a spot to linger - got my drink wrong when ordered on the rox got the martini glass - requested no bread when asked if we wanted but brought it anyway - waiter could have offered veggies when ordered steak - had to ask after steak arrived for a side order of veggies (which would be on me)

Sarabeth’s always exceeds expectations. I love sharing the experience with those that have never experienced the delicious food and excellent service. The menu can satisfy young, old and in between. Between us, we had a salad, the club sandwich, tomato soup and grilled cheese.

I always enjoy eating at the various Sarabeth's locations. This was my first time at Central Park South. While the food was, as always, beautifully prepared and tasted as good as it looked, the restaurant loses a star for several reasons. First, as always, with dozens of empty tables, the maitre d' tried to seat us at the worst table in the place. We declined and chose another. Second - huge watermarks on the ceiling and greasy dust on the wall decor/glass which made the dining room look dingy and unkempt, taking away from the sparkling white linens and impeccable table service. Third (and this was a biggie for me) a lot of dead spiders and water slider bodies in the very dirty bathroom. The toilet and sink were spotless. The floor hadn't been swept since I don't know when and the walls had not been cleaned. I remind the restaurant that we don't just go to your place for the food!! The surroundings are just as important to enjoyment. Lastly, however, I must commend the waiter who carries with him one of the gel stick spot removers - which I needed when a drop of catsup hit my white linen jacket. He noticed, and with immediate attention, the spot disappeared. Kudos!
