Went on recommendation. Not disappointed. Make a reservation. Frederick was awesome. All the staff who came in contact with us were professional and pleasant. A well oiled machine.

"Tables too close together. Water served warm, no ice provided. Food ok. Champagne by the glass advertised on their menu but told it was not available. Overall very disappointed and unlikely to revisit."

Stumbled across Sarabeth’s after a wander in Central Park one evening. Had a late dinner on the patio. Great food, and very friendly service, who informed us that they are famous for their breakfast. Went back 2 days later for breakfast, and were very impressed....For any meal, this place is a winner.More

Came for dinner and lucky to get an outdoor table which we love. The staff was great from Jose the host to Mitzi, our waitress and her supporting team. Dishes arrived in a timely fashion and they gave us time to have our wonderful tomato...soup before the entrée. I always request a sweeter white wine but they never put a Riesling on the list. That would be my only criticism. Otherwise the food is always good as well as the service and the ambiance. Although the restaurant is pricey, it is worth the treat every once in a while.More

Visited during my stay in the City. Once with my friend for Saturday brunch. Service was great and the food was to die for. Once on my own before my flight back to London. Again food was first class however this time service was no...more than 3*. Had to ask for a tea spoon several times and my food arrived in portions 10 min apart. Would I come back? Probably but there is much nicer place next door.More

Had brunch there a couple of weeks ago after a walk in Central Park. I had a delicious salad and my husband had an omelette which was light and fluffy! I had a delicious pickled Bloody Mary. Service was good. It was a pleasant experience!

We enjoyed Sunday Brunch in June, 2022. There was not an open table at 11 am, so consider reservations. I love to try homemade cocktails, so I ordered “It’s About Thyme” made with bourbon, thyme infused sugar syrup lemon juice and Creme de Peche (pear...liquor). The drink is a creation of the bartender (Mikal?) and is not to be ignored. I had to have a second because it was so refreshing. On the way out, I stopped by the bar and complimented Mikal on his creation and he rewarded me with the recipe. I will not divulge it so you have to stop in and order one (or two). Plus the food is outstanding so you will not be disappointed. Just be sure to let them know you are coming. Oh, and service is exceptional also.More

My wife and I had a late breakfast there on our way to Central Park. I ordered the Sarabeth's Signature Sirloin Burger and my wife ordered Spinach & Goat Cheese Omellete. The restaurant was very packed, which is expected for a good spot in Manhattan....Tables are very close to each other. The server asked us for drinks and offered either still or sparkling water. We ordered still. To our surprise, he brought a large bottle, which I did not question until I saw that other tables had tap water and not bottled! I guess the server saw the "tourists" in us! I did not like this. My burger was cooked to my order but was not what I thought it was since it was advertised as the "Signature." I was expecting something more memorable. My wife's omelette was not the greatest! It was a bit tasteless. On the hygienic side, we sat next to the window in the back of the restaurant. Lots of ants were roaming around. But, and there is always a but, I may visit again for the convenience of the place but will certainly order a safe order, such as fruits. On the price side, it may NOT be your choice if you are on a budget! The breakfast was expensive.More

Have eaten at 3 different Sarabeths in NYC and love them all! Each are unique and in menu and atmosphere. My favorites are: Breakfast Oatmeal at UW Side Lemon-Ricotta Pancakes on S. 5th Chopped Salad/Tomato Soup-C.Park Love the outdoor seating options at all! Just discovered...the one on S. 5th has a great happy hour daily too! Hope to return to all someday:)More

The ambiance was OK, but the food was blend at best… from the overall looks of the restaurant and how the food was described on the menu, I was expecting something a bit memorable. Unfortunately it was everything but. My omelette was tasteless, the avocado...that came clearly was not freshly cut, the salad came overdressed and the scone seemed and tasted to have seen better days. The only positive was our server: Maurice. He was friendly, professional and made everything possible fóruns to feel welcomed.More

Sarabeth’s was one of the locations on our NYC bucketlist, suggested by family. Our breakfast reservation was made weeks before. At 8am, we were appointed a table prepared for 4 (we were with 5). Waiters did not notice, we had to inform them after quite...some time without any waiter looking after us. Three (!) water glassed had to be returned, not clean. No excuses. By the way: I saw that glasses are not dried after cleaning and stored partially wet upside down on a dishcloth. Seems hygiene issue. Waiter serving water was not paying attention and equal uninterested as our main waiter, needed to ask to refill empty glasses. The food was good, but given the poor service not a reason to return and not worth the high prices (2 eggs $25 + additional $14 for bacon on the side!). Soon after we left, I received an email with a survey, where I informed them about our experience. Shortly after, the general manager sent a personal reply, indicating ‘he was equally disappointed with your experience here at Sarabeth's Central Park South as you are. It is simply not what you should expect from us.’ He asked ‘some time to regroup with his team to further look into our experience.’ The next email a day later was less personal, mentioning ‘It was a pleasure to have you dine with us yesterday!’ We had breakfast….. No further details… There are many better breakfast alternatives in NYC than this….More

Sarabeth's has lost it's luster. Our service, while polite, was rushed with a constant "upsell". I ordered an omelette, there was no gluten free bread so I asked for a side of bacon. 5 strips of bacon came in at a whopping $14! The omelette...was $24 before this addition. I filled out a customer survey which I received the next day and got a prompt response that it would be looked into so I held off on this review but since then there has been radio silence. Will not be back, too many other brunch options in the city.More

It’s a great place for sure for a brunch but I know space is limited and doubt they have private rooms, I would suggest call them and ask if you can have the corner area inside over looking the park. All the best!
