The cobb salad was best in class--delicious, wholesome ingredients. The omelet was great. They said they had pumpkin muffins, but did not, and did not apologize for that oversight. They seemed really shortstaffed. They were, though, kind when seating us.

The food was good (four of us had a variety of dishes) but the service was very strange. When coffee arrived, there was no sugar on the table. Also no spoons. I ordered cream and got milk instead. Servers had to be looked for and flagged down. Very odd. There were sufficient servers on view, but no one seemed prepared. Eventually, meals were served, and all evened out, with better service to follow. Perhaps the problem was that we had arrived between shifts (a bit late for brunch, a bit early for dinner) on a Sunday afternoon/evening. Still, it would seem that a longstanding restaurant like Sarabeth's could do better than no spoons, no sugar and wrong items brought to the table.

Always loved Sarabeth’s- I even had a birthday party at the midtown location.
I asked twice for balsamic vinegar for my salad . The waiter never checked back on our table - person who cleared the table just said sorry and handed my husband the bill.

Orange juice is not fresh. Guacamole also not house made. The cheese melt for adults, announces a good mix (gruyere, manchego ,..) and none of those cheeses one can barely taste, the pretzel bread is not toasted but butter soggy and small...
Really dissapointing

It was a shock to me that I didn’t like the food here, I’ve been to other Sarabeth’s and the food was very good but here it was a disappointment, I ordered the classic eggs Benedict and the hollandaise sauce had too much citric it was not balanced at all. The eggs were poached perfect but that’s about it. We ordered mimosas and you could tell by the flavor of it that the orange juice was not fresh. Since I only ate half of my plate I ordered 2 cappuccinos which were actually very good.
Now our waiter since the beginning had an attitude towards us, we had to wait more than 35 minutes for him to take our order after we told him politely that we were ready. He almost didn’t pay any attention to us.
Now the ambiance, it was a little loud we sat upstairs near the stairs and there were 3-4 flies bugging us and the table next to us yes flies.. when we were finished eating we were making our way outside and a group of women near the exit I imagine the hostess and I think the chef and I imagine other servers said goodbye so nicely and warming so that was the only good thing about that brunch.
I usually don’t like writing negative things about restaurants since I always research and pick the best ones throughout the city since I am a food and wine blogger but this time I was disappointed on bringing my party there.

From start to finish (reservations, changes in reservations, greetings, table location choice, menu explanation, table service, goodbyes), our group of 10 diners was treated so kindly by the accommodating and gracious staff. They acted like we were family! The food was delicious and creative. I’m craving that cod, caper and cabbage dish! Many thanks!

Not impressed, over priced, my food came on a dirty plate, the waitress said it’s clean just has black spots on the plate because the plate was old. When I started wiping of the black spots of the plate, and ask her to send it back, only then did she suggest a clean plate. Will not recommend, will not return.

Sarabeth's has always been overrated, IMO. It's good, not great. The selections, prices, quality and service vary too much from location to location. This UES location is far better than the one on CPS, but inferior to the one on PAS. And the bathroom--only one of two was operational--was awful, not cool for an overpriced restaurant.
