A very good and affordable restaurant south of Central Park.

We went there with a party of 4. Had made reservation through open table before. We had our table on time with a friendly welcome to the restaurant. 3 of us chose the Steak Frite. Very good and tasty steak with incredible fries. This restaurant is affordable based on what you can find in... read more

We wanted a Sunday brunch. The line was long, but it moved. It was more than worth the wait. The drinks were perfect, the food was exactly as we desired, and the selection was varied. The staff was professional, courteous, and knowledgeable. It was great. I highly recommend it. We also had dinner there the night before and had an... More

Make sure you have a reservation there. Very good brunch place. More so for the bustling ambience. A must try out for everyone visiting NYC. Enjoyed ourselves thoroughly.

Convenient to the Park Lane Hotel next door. Variety of choices from burgers to salads although most reviewers seem to eat breakfast or brunch. Any place on CPS will have a price tag.

We have eaten in other Sarabeth's locations before so we're familiar with the menu. Though the restaurant is best known for their bread and pastries, breakfast and brunches, (which are excellent!), they do serve every meal and the selections are excellent as well. The best part for us was, the restaurant was located right next to our hotel on Central... More

This place was packed when we went last weekend. It was good but not amazing. I am not sure what I am missing on this one. I had a club and it was good. Hard to mess up a club. Service was fine despite it being so busy. We had a rez so we were seated right away. Good place... More

The food here is always great. They are famous for brunch, but I highly recommend having dinner here as well. Save room for dessert! Limited outdoor seating in the summertime.

Absolutely disgusted with how my family was treated while waiting for a table. We waited an hour with a 5 month old in the sun (after being told 15 minutes when I originally put my name down). Every time we checked on the progress of the table we were told longer until my husband asked and was simply ignored by... More

Staying in Midtown

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.
