Everything was fine. Would I recommend this restaurant? I would hesitate because I think it is very overpriced. An omelet and a cup of coffee... with tax and tip... just under $30.
Service was very poor.
We felt extremely rushed and they took our plates when we not even finished. But food was good. Shame about the service
Perfect for brunch
I always love Sarabeth’s. They never disappoint. We will be back soon.
Great place to take out of towner parents who like big restaurants like they’re still in the suburbs. The service was incredible, they got my mom new coffee when they thought it got cold. Pancakes were good, veggie omelette was interesting with peas, but overall tasty.
We ordered the Lemon Ricotta Pancakes and the Jalepeno Omlette. This place had been recommended by multiple people for their breakfast, but it was average, at best. The Omlette wasn't even spicy and the pancakes were underdone. For an $80 ticket, this is not a place I will be returning.
Had breakfast/brunch there with a couple of my girlfriends on Saturday. We had reservations for it. Food was really good, we shared classic eggs Benedict and Avocado burrata toast. We also had some deliciuos mimosas. Would definitely go back for brunch there again.
Food was tasty but I think I little overpriced for lunch
The Park Avenue South location is the best of all other Sarabeth locations I've visited! The food is always fresh and delicious, service excellent, and a very nice ambiance.
The food, atmosphere, and especially the service are excellent.
Nice and fairly quiet place in the early morning
An enjoyable Saturday brunch in Manhattan.
The occasion was a reunion after five years. The service, food and location was perfect!
Seared Tuna excellent as good if not better than any top restaurant
The food was delicious. A+ for those buttermilk pancakes. Service: excellent. Have to mention the coffee: Its become nary impossible to get a cup of steaming hot coffee in even the best of restaurants these days. Those plastic thermoses, I believe, are the culprits. They just do not hold the heat for long. We sent our luke- warm coffee back twice, determined to get it hot. We were successful... In any case, we will certainly be back. Mike
The Waiter should be more attentive. did not have my usual waiter .
Nice spot for good food!!! Enjoyed both the service and the ambience.
Greeting and seating was gruff! Wait staff unfriendly, but food and menu were good! Bar staff was friendly.
Had a reservation and we got in immediately. Tight seating but that is NYC. The only problem we had was our waiter, he was not very good. Possibly new but he brought my dining companion a Latte when she clearly asked for tea.
When asked for a little milk, a glare by him and did not bring the milk until I asked for it for my coffee. Not attentive at all.
Otherwise everything was great. The food is some of the best brunch food I have had in the city. The crew that was helping our waiter deserved the tip not him.
Definitely will go back to Sarabeth’s maybe just a different location.
Graet food, great service would give it a 5 star except we were seated so close to the next table that we couldn't even have a concersation and when it was time to leave we couldn't get out from our table without them having to move. Too awakward!! There were plenty of other tables open but because we were a party of 2 they put us at a tiny table literally inches apart from the next table.
I had always heard about Sara Beth's for brunch and finally decided to try it for Easter Brunch with a group of British friends who live in Barcelona. It's a lovely place and the large booth was spacious and comfy. I'm sorry to say that we felt the food was overpriced and only slightly above average. We all had some form of Eggs Benedict--with either a crab cake or smoked salmon. They make their own "English Muffin" for the base, which I found too bready and tasteless. The eggs were slightly undercooked, showing raw egg whites mixing with the egg yolks but I really didn't want to send them back. The smoked salmon portion was so slight, it was laughable. My friends said the crab cakes were good but they didn't look like lump crab meat. We ordered a muffin basket with 'legendary jam.' I really wanted to adore the muffins but they were only so-so and the jam & butter was insufficient for the amount of muffins. The cocktails were pretty, but over-priced. The service was attentive and appreciated. I will not return.
We had been seated for 15 minutes before I finally got up and asked when a server would be over. The restaurant wasn't even full and our section did not appear to be busy. Someone came by and filled our water glasses but said only our server could take our drink orders. When this finally happened, our bloody Mary's were so bad we could not finish them, which was followed by some not very tasty food. Our kids liked their pancakes and I would say this is about the only thing I would recommend this place for...somewhere to bring your kids who prefer bland food.
We've been to other locations, but they were full for reservations and since this location wasn't too far, we figured it would be a good second option. Our waiter seemed irritated and didn't offer any help to the menu. It was only after the couple next to us got up that we realized there was an Easter special menu to order from, but by that time it was too late.
I asked if I could get my mean without peppers, which he let me know wasn't possible. When my meal arrived, I realized it was only a garnish and could've been avoided. A couple on the opposite side of us, but in close quarters, was complaining about our waiter the entire time, which ruined the nice Easter brunch we were trying to have by their constant complaints.
I'm not sure if we caught him on a bad day, but the overall experience was not good and seemed very tense for those around us. We were in town for Easter and celebrating a birthday and had to leave that afternoon to return home, but wouldnt recommend this particular location to anyone.
Great food but definitely didn’t feel that waiter was particularly interested in paying attention to the table.
Quiet comfortable space. Nice menu options.
Our waiter made three order mistakes- pretty high for a restaurant of this caliber. THAT was a big disappointment. I didn’t make a fuss because it was a First dinner with an SO of my daughter.
Octopus was over done and bread crust was burnt. The rest of the food was really excellent
The omelette, French toast and bacon were all exceptional! Superb!
Highly over rated. Food was nothing special. Lacks ambience. As my daughter said, just a high-priced Eat'n'Park. Many waitstaff scurrying around, only one young man was personable and had to flag one down and ask for coffee refills. Omelet was nothing to write home about, scone did not resemble any scone I've seen or eaten. Thank goodness for the preserves to rescue it. Hundreds of better options in the city. Was supposed to be a special brunch for my daughter's birthday. Don't be back.
We have been wanting to come here for a while now and I must say I don’t understand the hype. I had the short rib hash for brunch and it was ok,nothing spectacular. My daughter had the salmon and eggs, her friend recommended it, my daughter did not like it. I had a Bloody Mary and I sent it back. It had a strange pickeled taste, I sent it back for a mimosa and that was very good. We also enjoyed the bacon, and that was about it. Our server, Casey, was very good. She was friendly and efficient.
We were a party of 3 adults, seated in the back area where they were seating families with small children and large groups
Always enjoy the dining experience at Sarabeth’s. This is the first-time I tried the prix fixe lobster with the kale salad to start and the chocolate cake for dessert. Lobster is usually not my go to but I was in the mood. Not sure that it was 1.5lbs as advertised but fine for $39 3-course meal. The lobster is hard shell and the claws were not cracked enough to be able to remove the meat. I asked for a nutcracker but there wasn’t one available so the claws went back to the kitchen for the meat to be removed. What I really appreciate about Sarabeth’s is there is something on the menu for just about everyone.
Food was average at best. Omelette was bland. Nice decor, service could have been better... they squeezed 8 people at a 6 person round table. Not ideal for a pleasurable dining experience.
Had a reservation for 2 at 11am for brunch, and my dining companion was running late. While they only seat full parties they moved my reservation to 11:30 without issue. Though the house was full & bustling, once seated we had great service and a delicious meal which I expect from Sarabeth’s at brunch!
A group of old friends booked a table 2 months in advance. We were coming from New Jersey, New York, Canada, Missouri. The one from Jersey had her train delayed. We were made to stand for over half an hour until our friend arrived. We had heavy backpacks that were in the way of customers. It would have been nice to have our reservation honored despite how many were there. What is the point of a reservation?
Very overpriced mediocre brunch. Wouldn’t return. Save for the tourists.
I love this restaurant. The food is wonderful and the so is the service! I didn't know what to expect and was very pleasantly surprised. We had a fabulous breakfast at Sarabeth's. I cannot wait to go back again. Make sure to have a reservation - it's an extremely popular restaurant. And...for good reason!!!
Very disappointed with the service. Had to search for someone each time we needed something- no one ever came over to refill coffee or ask about our meals. Just so-so. Food tasty but nothing extraordinary. Have had much better brunches elsewhere in NY
Lovely food and setting. Service wasn’t very polite
We can always count on a deliciously comfortable experience here. The food is inventive and most satisfying. The service is friendly and efficient.
It was great!!
Our waitress wasn’t too attentive. Food was okay.
