A great place for brunch, lunch or dinner! The food, service and atmosphere were very good!
Central Park South is a great location and this restaurant is always one of our must do's when we are in NYC.
Warning, it is popular so reservations are recommended.

This is the second time I have been at Sarabeth's on my trip to NY. I hope is not the last.
Reservations will save you waiting time.

Everything was great, the only thing I would have changed is the starter course and salad course for Thanksgiving was not kid friendly. I paid for two full adult version meals, but they only ate the steak. Woudl have been nice to have a kid friendlier option for the starter/appetizer/salad course.

Quality of the food was excellent. Service however left much to be desired. Shortly after being seated, server asked if we were ready to order and we said no. He left without even taking our drink orders and was gone for at least ten minutes. My soup was served but I had to ask for a spoon which took an inordinate amount of time to arrive. He was generally inattentive throughout the evening. We overhead the foursome next to us debating what his tip should be since they noted it was "not worthy of 20%".

Sarabeth's was recommended to me by a family member who frequented there many times while their son attended Columbia.

I took two grandchildren/adults- 24 and 22 and they were very impressed. Their first time in New York City. Our wait person was Dana. Very good and attentive and friendly. Made all of us feel very comfortable. She happens to have the same name as the grandchildren/adults father's first name.

I have a granddaughter who's name is Sarah Beth. So this was another deciding factor. Hope to bring her some day.

We had the most amazing Thanksgiving at Sarabeths. We like to go to Opentable each year for Thanksgiving suggestions. We had a GREAT table for our party of 8 which made the experience even better. Being in New York we expect cramped space but our table was perfect, the meal was great and we are very thankful for such a great Thanksgiving.

We were seated an hour prior to our reservations when we arrived early, which was great, but we proceeded to wait for water for about ten minutes. Drinks took ten minutes longer, arriving after our appetizers. Food was good, service seemed to improve after my second cocktail, which was made quite nice and strong. The table behind us had six kids, all seemingly under the age of 10, so the noise from that table and the many other tables with kids was loud. Thankfully, no screaming babies, though. If you have toddlers and want somewhat fancy, this is the place for you. I might go back one day, perhaps when I have grandchildren.

I enjoyed this restaurant the most in NYC. Had the lobster roll & creme brûlée which were very good. Chicken pot pie & macaroni & cheese were also good. No printed kids menu to go by.

When making reservatin had requested a table at the window but did not get one. Walked a long way back to a table in the back and it was very very very noisy. So loud we could not have a conversation at the table and there were only four of us. That was extremely disappointing.

Really liked this restaurant, which was better than expected. The mint green decor was dated and missed the mark of creating a homey feel. Thankfully the food was delicious and the service was equally good.

The food went beyond expectations. I had the almond crusted french toast. It is very expensive. It cost me $9 for two scrambled eggs on the side, but felt the quality of the food made it worth it.

The food here has always been excellent for brunch. This is the first time we went for dinner. We each had a salad and main course. While finishing the main course, someone sat down next to us and ordered a starter and main course. She was then brought this lovely basket of rolls and biscuits. Shortly thereafter, the server asked if we wanted anything else. I said it would have been nice to have been offered the bread basket. She said that is only done upon request. I knew that not to be true since the person next to us never requested the bread. And even if it is true, it's a very poor policy to offer complimentary food items only to those who know to ask for them.

Food was excellent as usual. We went for Sunday brunch, there were a LOT of runners eating here (judging by their attire). My only gripe was that we were seated approx 35 mins after our booked time.

As always, my favorite pancakes in the world. Had a reservation that somehow got sent to sarabeths as 2 but my email correctly confirmed as 4, so we had a bit of a wait but got a wonderful table right by the window and great service and yummy food!Will stay on my list as a "must" on future NYC trips.

Food was okay. But when you pay $19 for an omelette, you expect better. And $8 for a side of bacon is a little steep.

Restaurant wasn't too noisy or too crowded despite it being a Saturday night, and the food was excellent. I had called the day before to ask that my mother's birthday be recognized by the staff in some way, and they offered to put a candle in a piece of dessert. They forgot. Other than that oversight, it was a pleasant dining experience.

I discovered Sarabeth's on a previous trip to New York and made a point of making a reservation before coming again this time. I have also recommended it to friends coming from England next year. Food is always good and it always a great experience.
