I got here early enough on a Saturday morning that I was able to sit right away. Nice combination of families and locals mixed in at the tables around me. French toast was the best I've ever had - light and fluffy. Gorgeous. Good service, unintrusive. Warm greeting on arrival and a really nice atmosphere

The restaurant has a warm feel and a lovely decor. Both the service and the food were very good. The steak with pepper sauce and french fries were delicious, as was the seafood Cobb salad, which had lobster, crab and shrimp on it. The vinaigrette dressing was also delicious. I recommend this restaurant.

Sarabeth's is known for it's excellent breakfast and brunches. However, dinner is
also worth experiencing. Service is attentive without being obtrusive. Atmosphere,
especially Thurs. night when they have live jazz, is mellow and relaxing. Food is
a little pricey but fresh and tasty. Try Sarabeths for something besides breakfast
and discover their secret, they are great anytime.

We were a group of 3 girls (in our 30’s) with my friend's small puggle asking for outdoor seating around 2pm. Hostess (who mentions she was new and needs to ask a manager if having a dog around was okay) almost regretfully says the wait was for 30 minutes and makes a point to ensure my friend’s dog was leashed so it stays outside the dining area barrier- yes okay fine.. were they always so dog-friendly?- so she takes my name and we decide we can wait but in the meantime, we walk around the block with the dog and come back 20 minutes later for our table that would soon be ready in another 10. When we return we wait for a few min and I ask the hostess again for a sign of update on our table. She says there are still currently no outdoor table for 3 “but if a table becomes available you can just take it,” seemingly exasperated. Great! So we wait some more and we notice 2 tables-for-2 were free, just not connected to each other. Fine, we just had to wait for one table adjacent to a free table to clear and we'd be golden. So we ask if they can be nice enough to give us some mimosas while we stand and wait. Nope, "friendly" waitress says policy doesn't allow for them to serve us if we're not seated. Okay. Pause.. so how about if my friend with her dog sits on one outdoor available table and me and other girlfriend sit anywhere like inside (which has more than like 6 free tables, not crowded at all). Surprise surprise- "No, we have a policy," (yet again), "that once we seat you in a particular table blah blah blah, legalese etc, (moving verboten). “Do you have a policy against serving customers also?”

Wow! it's incomprehensible how disagreeable and off-putting they were! At this point it’s been a whole hour. The very people working in the food service industry who are supposed to value their customers and treat them with attentive service have completely given us the middle finger. Will not return to try again.
