Had Eggs Benedicts and Smoked Salmon on English muffins. Very good. Was served with a salad which surprised me for a 9am breakfast. But I like salad so I was pleased. Will go back on my next trip to NYC.

Fabulous breakfast spot in a wonderful location. Right across from central park. Outdoor dining has great people watching and a great view of the park. Breakfast menu and food is excellent. Service is very prompt, although not particularly friendly. Servers seem vey rushed.

A great place to experience true Manhattan Sunday and people watch. The food was a touch overpriced for its quality. And it was very noisy in the restaurant. Ventilation was not very good so be prepared to com out smelling oily.

Sarabeth's is always my mom and my favorite when traveling to NYC. Everything tastes great and it's just a fun treat. The lemon & ricotta pancakes are a hit ;)

We were looking for an early dinner place near the Central Park Zoo and this was perfect. It's kid-friendly and the food is good... not great, but good. I recommend making reservations ahead of arriving.

We had breakfast and it was good. The restaurant did not seem as clean as it could have. There was a musty smell when we entered, and the decor was a little "tired". But our service was very good! We would eat here again.

The food was very good. We were placed at a back corner table which was nice and quiet with my 10 and 13 year old. However, I think the waiter forgot about us a couple of times. Waiter helpful and friendly.

Myself and my group were visiting from Ottawa and had heard about the restaurant before we arrived. We had a superb Easter dinner thanks to Sarabeth's and will definitely go again on our next visit!

We went to Sarabeths with high expectations. Unfortunately, the hostess stand was overwhelmed and just couldnt seem to get people seated. We waited over 20 min for our table when people that walked in after us of same size parties seated first. They were a total mess. Waiter was brand new so that didn't help. Food was good but service killed it

This was a really expensive breakfast and the food was no different than at a nice deli. I would not go here again unless it was to sit outside to overlook the park.

I went to Sarabeth's with my family. I booked the restaurant via OpenTable from Tokyo. So we entered the restaurant so smoothly.
I ordered egg benedict for breakfast. The taste was very good and the volume is also good for me. But I am afraid that it might be too small for typical American.

Service was slow, despite it being almost empty inside.
Food was amazingly delicious. Braised lamb was so tender, and the cocktails were wonderful. Other party had a salad, but I don't remember which. They enjoyed it and said it was full of seafood. Tuna carpaccio was a great starter. The quite night made for a romantic evening after seeing a dance production nearby.
Was a wonderful conclusion to a night out.

White linen napkin prices, but they give you white paper napkins. Food and service barely average. There are so many other places nearby that are soooo much better.

Sarabeth's was great for lunch. Our table was directly adjacent to the kitchen doors, so there was probably a lot mor lee hustle and bustle than normal. Great service and got seated early with our reservation.

This is a great spot to get any basic "American" cuisine, it is nice to offer brunch fare during usual lunchtime hours.
It's greatest feature is the location -for both personal and business hook-ups. I turned friends on to Sara Beth's as we can walk or grab a subway
To meet there, many only know the more high-end dinner spots along the Park, so this became a "real find" for them in future.
Also very spacious, however,noise level is not conducive to private talk. But a big 'A" in my book!
