The food was good. My spinach and goat cheese omelette was excellent, but the pumpkin muffin was just okay. The service is what kills it. I had to flag someone down to take my order after several minutes and the place wasn’t that busy at the time. I only had my coffee refilled once and that was after trying for several minutes to flag someone down. Wait staff spent much of my time there leaning against the wall chatting with each other.

Food was great, as always, but I could do without the attitude from the hostesses. I know you’re always busy, but we had a reservation and didn’t need to be reminded that “this is a really popular place and that even celebrities have to wait.”

Sarabeth's Tribeca is rock solid. The food was both creative and hearty. The service attentive but not obtrusive. The bartender actually walked over and re-filled our cocktail with what was left in the shaker. And when the bill came, it felt like the amount exactly matched the value received - no small feet in Manhattan dining.

Truly disappointing since we thoroughly enjoyed the small Sarabeth coffee shop in Chelsea Market. The restaurant experience was deflating. Service was depressing — waitress seemed unhappy to be waitressing. Special basket of muffins ordered for table was cold and stale’ish. One of six entrees ordered was noteworthy (the others were equivalent to my subpar cooking). Overall ... a waste of meal when our time in NYC was limited.

it was pretty empty and waiter was extraordinarily slow, although nice. But VERY SLOW.
My chicken (rotisserie) was dry and served on lettuce which was wilted by the heat of the chicken and as a garnish was neither attractive nor functional. Martini was not good nor was the sangria.

We were very disappointed in our Sarabeth’s experience st tribeca. We were sat at a table a foot away from another on each side. Our food was cold and our waitress barely checked on us. The bloody Mary’s we ordered tasted like watered down tomato juice.

Upon our arrival, we were never greeted by our server. We were put in the far back where no one was seated. Our server came to the table, never introduced himself, took our order and never saw him again. We had runners and server assistants check on us. The food was decent, but nothing to write home about. Seeing that the restaurant was not busy at all, I would expect that the service would be a bit more catering to the tables already seated. Not planning to come back.

There was a energetic bar, so we asked to be seated away from, where it was quieter. Our servers were very attentive, as the restaurant was lightly attended when we arrived at 5:30pm. We started with oysters and grilled octopus, which was delicious! I had the scallop and clam pasta, which was very tasty, but was skimpy on the pasta for $26. My companion, the rotisserie chicken, which could use more flavor and a bit dry, and crispy frittes. It was happy hour until 8pm and we enjoyed the margaritas at half price! We would stop by again and see if there is improvement, if in the neighborhood.

Food is always good, but a bit pricey. On this occasion I made a point to order our starter fairly quickly to get the process started. After we finished that, it took un unnecessarily long time for our entrees to come. Typical story, flagged the waiter, he said it was coming right up, we waited some more, 3 of 4 entrees eventually came out, we waited for the 4th (a lobster roll! What's taking so long there??!), and ate. We then waited and waited for him to come back to order coffee or get the check ... so finally flagged him down to get the check, he says sure, then probably realizes his tip will not be what he envisioned, so he takes two steps back and asks if we want coffee or dessert on the house. (No dessert menus provided, btw.) We ordered a few coffees to go, which came (no milk or creamer service though)... and still he hadn't brought the check!! For the price of this place, I expect better service.

The location and ambiance of Sarabeth Tribeca is excellence. I was here for a business lunch. Unfortunately, the food quality was shockingly poor - I have been to Sarabeth many times for brunch, but was startled that the lunch menu was just a notch above my regular deli. My colleague and I each had a tasteless tuna fish sandwich. Her order was incorrect. My other colleague had a sandwich that was similarly but slightly incorrect. I would return for breakfast/brunch but not for lunch!

Today was the second time my fiancée and I have received poor service from the Tribeca location. On the first visit, a couple of months ago. We waited for an hour before the waitress figured out there might be a problem with our order. They finally brought our food to the table "Ice Cold". The food was taken back by our waitress and new plates arrived 20 minutes later. We finally started eating, after being seated for an hour and a half.

I enjoy the food at Sarabeth's, so I thought I would give it another try today. Our waiter was terrible again, we ordered a muffin and cappuccino, the cappuccino arrived warm. We ordered the cappuccino and muffin together to enjoy before the meal, cold cappuccino NO MUFFIN. I spoke to the Maitra D, asked her to find our waiter, he showed up 10 minutes later. We asked him again for the muffin, 45 minutes after sitting down no muffin, No Waiter, No Food. We were finally forced to ask a manager, she happened to be speaking to another table, about our food. She brought the muffin right over, still No Waiter, she came back and told us our food would be there shortly, still No Waiter. We were finally served, an hour and forty-five minutes after we sat down.

I happen to be African American, I am very sensitive about playing the "race card" I hate to think in those terms but on two separate occasions we received the same poor service, bad waiters/ waitresses, so it makes you wonder?

There aren't many black faces at Sarabeths during Sunday brunch in Tribeca, perhaps there is something happening there regarding race.

I'm a New Yorker I have choices, I won't ever go back, maybe that's what they want.

The service and food was exceptional, the only cons were that if you don't eat pork there are extremely few other meat options for breakfast for you, also be prepared to sit on top of other consumers.
