Super attentive service. I like the availability of breakfast items at 1pm. Food was delicious. The place was crowded but not noisy, able to enjoy a nice lunch.
I know it’s Sarabeth’s policy not to seat a party until everyone is there, but with 4 out of 5 there early, and the place half empty and our table ready, why make those waiting crowd uncomfortably at the bar? Next they always push bottled water - even for a party that has cocktails!! The waiter was nice but we had to flag him down to ask for more drinks or coffee or even more water. And then there was the check. We wanted the check split but one person was charged double the split. It took almost 20 minutes to straighten out while we sat there waiting. Odd for a place that clearly publishes the amount of time a party “has” the table. Anyway we finally got out of there. The food is good and it’s a pretty place and it’s a favorite of my friends. So it won’t be the last time I go there.
RESERVATION FOR 7:45.
Kitchen does NOT open till 8:00.
Had a meeting and other part of my party had a flight to catch.
We had a great service.
The hostess was very rude and did not understand how this was a problem. This must be fixed! Dine here fairly frequently though this was very disappointing! Need to have communications and information inline not a great experience with her -
Great food with generous portions!
My problem was the service. Our waiter was in an word awful. I was a waitress in my 20's so I speak from experience when I say he was just terrible. The host and the bus people were fine. We actually saw the bus staff constantly, but our waiter remained elusive for the most part. We ordered, and all seemed fine.
His personality was flat..that would be the best way to describe him. At any rate the drinks came without my Virgin Mary...I thought okay it'll be here in a few minutes. Well I was wrong and since I never saw my waiter again I walked up to the host desk and complained that I did not receive my Virgin Mary and could not seem to locate our waiter (there were 5 of us). The waiter I assume was informed and he brought over my drink. He walked over and said Virgin Mary? I held up my hand and he put the drink down. I am so sorry but as a former waitress I would have said I am so sorry at least. We could not find him to pay the check...we asked one of the other waitstaff, so he went to get him as we were using multiple cards.
He came we explained and that was it. There was never a smile nothing...flat. I left a 20% tip because he was not rude, I normally tip higher but he did nothing to warrant a better tip. Food was good and came out quickly, with no issues. Oh and the manger did come over to check that I had received my drink.
My husband said as we were leaving, well maybe he was having a bad day, I said I am sorry but when I was a waitress and no matter what might have been going on in my personal life had no bearing on my guests...they always thought that I was happy and friendly. If you cannot put aside your personal life while your waiting on people you should not be in the service industry. It's like acting, you play the part.
We had 1P reservations for 2 and were seated shortly after we arrived. My friend order the blueberry pancakes which were on the specials of the day. I had french toast. He loved the pancakes and french toast was good. We had asked for additional maple syrup when we order. It didn't come when food was presented and we each asked again. The server came back with one and had to go back for the second. It was noisy and tables very close.
Waited 45 minutes for drinks. Wait staff was inattentive. Food mediocre.
The food was excellent which made up for the rude manager in the poncho!
Hi AB, Thank you for the great ratings, We are glad you loved the food and service. ~Sarabeths PAS team
Lovely brunch experience! Go on the earlier side (before 10am) to enjoy a quiet brunch.
had the eggs with lox !
service was fine
Ideal table location for a family with little ones, a great menu, terrific food, servers refilled coffee and water constantly, and no pressure to rush out. Perfect brunch!
Food and service was wonderful. The table we sat at was a bit too close to the next table. Would have rather sat elsewhere without feeling crowded.
The space in the front of the restaurant is packed upon entry and the people who are unfortunate enough to sit right in front of the entrance (me) have people leaning all over you while you are eating. The booths and the tables in the back had a lot of room and space but the tables in the front were too small to fit multiple plates of food.
Shocking experience other than the steps that were taken to make it up for us. Really poor service food arrived at different times and was cold. Staff didn’t seem to understand basic requests.
The manager made a generous contribution to making it right but we’d rather it had been right first time.
Great food and ambience
it's a good "go to" when in that neighborhood. Pleasant atmosphere, live jazz, nice wait staff , plenty of choices even for the pickiest eaters. And of course, the Velvety Tomato soup.
I love the place. The food is very good, excellent presentation and great atmosphere.
Hi Maria, Thank you for joining us and letting us know we hit the mark! We hope to serve you again soon! 🥂 ~Sarabeths PAS team
The service is what really stands out at this location. The GM came over to check on us which was really nice. The entire staff was very professional and our server Devon was so nice. It is quite pricey for brunch but Park Avenue is not cheap so it’s understandable.
Hi Sarah, Thank you for letting us know Devon delivered great hospitality to you and your guests, we will certainly let him know your thoughts. We are so glad you enjoyed your experience at our location and we are happy to check-in! We hope to serve you with many more🍾 ~Sarabeths PAS team
Sarabeth's Park Avenue South location is a STAPLE for brunch in Manhattan. You can go for any occasion. I was there just for a casual brunch, but others were there celebrating engagements, birthdays, and reunions. The menu is diverse and there are choices for the vegetarian diet which is crucial for me. I will definitely return either for a casual brunch or the next time I have a celebration with friends.
Hi Kelsey, What a great review to read, Thank you for taking the time to write it we appreciate the feedback and glad you enjoy our restaurant!🤗
If you book 3 persons table and only two are there they keep you standing there waiting for the third person to arrive forever or they only offer you a two persons table.
Later after sitting there for good 20 minutes completely ignored I was able to get the pretentious hostess attention and finally someone helped us.
Horrible experience, never again.
Service staff were courteous and very attentive, continuing to return to refill coffee and water. The food was great. Guests and I enjoyed spinach and goat cheese omelette, chicken and sausage frittata and crabmeat Benedict.
Hi MalB, Thank you for your review. Happy to be of service and hope to see you again soon!🙂 ~Sarabeth's PAS team
Our server was Outstanding!!! And don’t even think about skipping pickled Bloody Mary:)
Hi Hogerrun, Thanks for letting us know you loved your server, I have a good feeling I know who you are referring too but if you remember your servers name let us know, none the less we are happy you enjoyed your time with us. We hope to serve you again soon😀
Food was delicious. Our server was attentive & made great suggestions just could have brought around the coffee a little more often (in his defense, I drink it more quickly than most). Was disappointed that even with a reservation, we were seated at table in the middle of a traffic pattern and other chairs bumping up from the other side. We should have requested to be seated somewhere else but didn’t.
Hi, Thank you for your feedback, we will use it to improve where we can. Please do not hesitate to let us know if there is anything we can do to make your experience better the next time you are in we will be happy to accommodate any request if we can. ~Sarabeth's PAS team

Hi RangeRover, Thank you for listing all the great categories you would consider coming to us for! We are happy to serve you and your friends for any type of occasion!😀 ~ Sarabeth's PAS team
Good food, well prepared, attractive presentation. However, when I asked for bread they told me they ran out of it. And, they brought the entrees before we had finished our appetizers. The same thing happened the last time we were there. That's not acceptable if you expect to be considered an upscale, well-run restaurant.
Great atmosphere, quiet ambiance, service was fair as the waiter was busting 5 tables all at once, including 1 big table of 8. The only complaint was how under cooked the hanger steak was when it was served to us. We asked for it to be cooked medium and it was brought out extremely rare. It was so rare, that when we cut into it, not only did blood come out, but there were strands of tendon that made it very unappetizing to eat. Thankfully, we brought it back to the kitchen and the chef re-cooked it. The food did taste exceptional right after including the burger and calamari. Definitely get the side of truffle fries!

My father and I were visiting NYC on business. We ate breakfast on a Wednesday. It was great great light jazz music, and the omelette’s were fluffy and delicious.
Hi, Thank you for your kind review, happy to have you and we hope you think of us the next time you are in NYC.☕️ ~ Sarabeth's PAS team
Food was great-loved the scramble egg popover dish with the cream cheese-delicious and nice size portion. It's NYC prices but it's a very nice place to go. The bloody mary was just right-not too spicy and fresh ingredients. I took my mom their for her birthday and when I made the reservation on open table they asked is this a special occasion and I said yes "birthday" and the waiter brought over a very large piece of cake with a candle (also tasted great). I didn't ask the serve or anything to do that-it was a super nice touch! We bought enjoyed our brunch very much and I look forward to making this a yearly tradition.
Hi Kelly Ann, Happy to make your mom's birthday better🎂🎉 We love traditions! Thank you for the great feedback. ~Sarabeths PAS team
Went with my wife for dinner Sat night. While waiting for our entrees a mouse crawled out of the kitchen and under the table next to me. I informed our waiter and his assistant. Neither seemed to care. No other staff member addressed this with me. Couldn’t believe that no one seemed to care. Everyone ignored it. I completely lost my appetite. Couldn’t get out of there fast enough
This is me and my parents favorite place to brunch in NYC. This location is the BEST Saeabeths in the city by far.
