It was a last minute decision to swing by Sarabeth's Central Park South this past January. Staying around the corner we asked the concierge for a good place to eat. He said this place is known for its breakfast and lunch but the "locals" know it for its excellent dinner. We arrived with no reservations (again, last minute decision) and... More

We pre booked and i was so glad we did as there were alot of people queuing! The staff were very friendly and atmosphere was very nice. I had the lemon and ricotta pancakes with fresh blackberries, pot of tea and a mimosa. This place isn't the cheapest but my god were the pancakes beautiful!! I thought it was well... More

This is a nice place to go have brunch. You will enjoy the food but maybe not the wait if you have no reserved for a table. It can be long till you have one and its busyness might not be well appreciated by some. The food taste is excellent and the quality of the service is very good.

On a visit in Jan 2015, an annual trip to NY, I breakfasted here one morning and was not as impressed as on previous visits to this and the Upper East Side branch. Corn beef hash was very good but not cheap, service very uninterested, the place in the middle of works completely lacked any atmosphere and was very noisy.... More

Good food, great service, a short walk from the Park Lane Hotel and across from Central Park. Little pricey for breakfast, but well within the norm for NYC.

I darted into Sarabeth's for a quick, one-person dinner before hopping a bus back to DC. They were able to seat me easily enough on a Sunday night, though my waitress was double-hatting as the bartender, which seemed a bit odd. Food was great though, and they got me out in time to make my bus.

Our early Friday 5:00 supper at Sarabeth's was wildly over-priced and, with exception of the guacamole and homemade chips, was one of the worst meals I've had in New York. Both my entree Cobb Salad and my dining partner's Lobster Macaroni & Cheese were rife with almost spoiled seafood. I couldn't finish mine. We ordered a Coca-Cola and an iced... More

We visited twice for Breakfast during our 7 day stay in New York in Novemeber. Both times times the food was exceptional and it nearly became one of my favourite places. However the second and last time we visited our bill (for 4) totalled around $182. We 100% definitely gave the waiter $200 (we know this as we counted it... More
