Breakfast here is an experience! They are obviously famous for their baked goods, which was not our priority! Service was good, although it took forever to get a slice of lemon...both the tea and cappuccino were excellent as were the pancakes and the scambled eggs ...really tasty eggs! BUT why such HUGE portions??? We sent back about half the food,... More

At the behest of the hotel concierge, we headed to SaraBeth's and had the BEST (and pricey) breakfast ever. The portions were huge and satisfying, the wait staff is very nice and the food was delicious! I would definitely recommend this place over and over again Can't wait to go back.

You need to get in early if you don't want to queue at Sarabeth's. I've enjoyed some of my best NYC mornings drinking my coffee outside on the Park. The menu is short but varied for what it is and everything is as tasty as it looks. Some of the plates like the pancakes are huge, be careful. For the... More

I went here for a business lunch. I did have the "One Great Burger" (ca. 18 Dollar without tax) and it was a very tasty and good burger that came with guacemole. However, the way it is served one can basically assemble the burger as one wishes (guacemole came in a side dish, tomatoes etc.). Clear recommendation for the burger.... More

Came across this restaurant last year after visiting Central Park and enjoyed brunch very much, so when we visited New York again this July we decided to return and we were not disappointed. There were four of us for lunch at around 2.00pm and luckily we did not have to wait (usually you need to book or the wait can... More

If you are not seated in the first room or outside it really is not worth the money. Indeed the eggs are just plain and nothing special. So if you are seated in the rear room you have no light, a lot of noise, you are seated too close to other people and it is expensive for nothing special.

Took a business colleague here for an early dinner (due to time and logistic constraints). The food was fine (not great, but certainly acceptable) but the atmosphere was very "touristy" and there were lots of children (albeit well behaved ones). Even though the restaurant was not particularly crowded, service was a bit slow. Overall, not a terrible experience but there... More

Had never been to a Sarabeth's. This one was a great way to start our Central Park Day. We didn't have reservations (table of five) but many before and after us did. We lucked out. Not much of a wait, but saw that wait grow. Although big and busy the atmosphere is cute, with a little garden section, greenery, and... More

We were meeting another couple for breakfast and were told that we couldn't be seated until all people in the party arrived. It would have been nice to have a coffee while we waited. The food was perfect. I had the Spinach and Goat Cheese Omelette with Rye Toast and Sarabeth's homemade preserves, the food was fantastic. After spending a... More
