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.

I will not be returning to Sarabeth’s. Upon our arrival no one greeted us. We still at the hostess desk for a few minutes before a hostess returned. She barely parted her mouth to say good morning. Our waiter however was very accommodating. My one issue with my meal was that it stated it came with country ham. I did not expect that ham to be lunch meat from the deli. There is no way I would be willing to spend $18 on a meal consisting of scrambled eggs, spinach, tomatoes, egg muffin and deli ham. If that is the best that can be provided I would recommend the restaurant providing that information upfront

The white wine was warm, the food humdrum, the service erratic. And they topped it off by telling Open Table that I had not been there. I had a receipt. of course, to show that I had honored my reservation. Oh, well.

I had the shrimp risotto dish. The consistency of the risotto was off, and the dish had absolutely no taste. I tried to elicit some flavor from the dish by adding grated chasse. To no avail because the cheese had no flavor. I may as well have been sprinkling sawdust on the risotto. In addition , the dish was served with 3 shrimp tails as well as three shrimp heads that were empty. Why were the empty head shells there.? One of the worse meals I have ever had dining out!

Coming here for years. Sarabeth’s is the king and queen of comfort food. We’ve had almost everything on the menu and never been disappointed. This is how your mother would cook if she really knew her way around a kitchen and had access to lots of fresh ingredients. Aside from the food, Sarabeth’s passes two important tests. Good bread basket and terrific service.

I am from the old world and a frequent visitor to the new. I was first in NYC 52 yrs ago and since then its my favourite city. And after an American friend took me and my wife to Sarabeth’s EAST for the first time 10 yrs ago Sarabeth’s EAST is our favourite restaurant in NYC. The food is excellent and the atmosphere is wonderful. Visiting Sarabeth’s EAST is a delightful experience and adds substantially to the attraction of NYC. I bring very fond memories back to the old world, including a taste from Satabeth’s EAST: a jar of the superb orange marmalade is always with me back to the old world. Thanks for dinner this time. I am already looking forward to seeing you again!
Best,

There were four of us, each ordered something different except for my wife and I. We had the hamburger and it was cooked as requested. The meat had a great beefy taste and the French fries were very good. Disappointed in the price of the cocktail, very expensive at $15. Also, coffee for $4.75 seems excessive. Will return but skip the beverages.

Poor service. Overworked staff. We were seated at a table that was very high compared to the height of the seats. We waited 10-15 minutes for a waiter and then looked around to notice that very few tables have been served food. We asked to place an order and after waiting five minutes more For the waiter we decided to leave the restaurant.
