Lovely restaurant

I stumbled across this restaurant on Valentine's Day and thought I'd grab a bite to eat before a walk around Central Park. This was the busiest restaurant I came across.

I ate breakfast at Sarabeth's for two mornings during my stay at the hotel next door. The menu is fantastic, but I chose the same meal both days because it was so good - a kale salad with an egg. Served with toast and the famous preserves, it was a spectacular way to start the morning. Expect to wait, and... More

I dined here for both dinner and breakfast during my recent visit. Both meals were wonderful and the menu selections were a plus, it's always nice to have varying options from lobster rolls to pot pie. The food was delicious and brought me back for another meal in the same week. The only downfall was that my father ordered a... More

We arrived from the freezing -11 degrees behind another diner. 4 girls at the host desk so I went to speak to the last one who quickly interrupted me to say that they needed to see to the gentleman who entered first. I was taken aback by this as there were three other girls there all attending to this man... More

I had lunch at Sarabeth's recently and was pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious and fresh, the wait staff was extremely attentive, and the restaurant was warm and inviting. We both ordered frittatas and they were outstanding. I highly recommend this lovely restaurant.

I knew this would be a bit of a splurge, so I didn't mind paying - and boy was it worth it. We went for Sunday brunch and I had a delicious Green Tea to start, and Eggs Benedict as my main, and my friend had the pancakes (so fluffy!). Best eggs benny ever, soooo yum and moreish, but totally... More

I took my family at Sarabeth's as a treat during their visit in NYC. I knew it was a "must do" so no hesitation on my part. I was not disappointed, the food was good and we had a great time. I would recommend it!

This restaurant was recommended for breakfast by the concierge at our hotel. It faces Central Park and the front of house is very elegant. We arrived early and there was almost no one else there. During our time the place filled completely and had a lovely atmosphere. We were seated at a table at the back. It is nowhere near... More

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
