Sarabeth's Central Park South Ratings and Reviews

Everything was adequate, except for the fact that they would not recognize my OpenTable reservation. The woman up front told me they tell customers all the time that they don't recognize those for brunch but seemed uninterested in fixing the issue.

Food was good and menu includes a variety of options. It was very crowded, but maybe that's summer in NYC. The Central Park location is very dated and perhaps that takes away from the experience. We ate lunch and while it was good, I didn't find it particularly amazing. I'd give it another try and stick to the breakfast options.

Everything was very good except the muffins were all very heavy and had cornmeal in muffins that should be lighter. They just were not that good. Lemon ricotta pancakes were excellent. Egg Benedict was good. Coffee was excellent😀

Great location. Outdoor seating cute yet elegant. We were seated inside, the ambiance was sophisticated yet laid back. I would recommend the lemon ricotta pancakes and salmon eggs benedict. Very happy to have reserved for an early Saturday breakfast. Strongly recommend making a reservation, fills up pretty quickly ;)

very disappointing, NY prices, average food at best, sub average service, no reason to revisit and return, ---the kid friendly atmosphere was acceptable, especially as a visitor to NY, but other than that, no reason to return,

Had lunch/brunch here w/boyfriend's family, were visiting from Austria. Ordered garden omelette w/o peas. Omelette was riddled with peas! No cheese, no squash and very little mushrooms. Muffin was good. Would have sent back, but was with hungry travelers.

Brunch is probably why people come here, dinner was a mistake for us. Aside from a little view of Central Park from the dining room I didn't find anything appealing. The dining room needs major updating, Food is mediocre; octopus I didn't like (it was swimming in something); salad was good, salmon dish good as well, my Cobb salad was a mistake for me.
They have a nice looking bread basket, but we didn't have any, gf bread was not available.
Didn't have dessert, espresso no good

Hostess outside could have been friendlier, she basically just stared at us until we spoke. Inside much different very friendly hostess and servers. Location was perfect right across from Central Park. Food was perfect for brunch, prices are on par with NYC pricing.
would definitely go back the next time we visit

The bread was stale which was a major disappointment. I had a sandwich and I had a muffin and scone for appetizer and none of it was fresh at all. For this particular restaurant which features Sarabeth's preserves, it was unexpected. I should have ordered something different but how would you know since this was brunch? I felt like it was also too expensive to have such a poor food experience and expected more.

I was expecting too much -loud and crowded -wait staff was nice -still had to wait for table even with reservation but got us in timely -pancakes were the best I've ever tasted -French toast and eggs Benedict were dry and not memorable -would not recommend but rather found a neighborhood breakfast spot that the food was to die for and overall more fun experience -since y'all already have people thinking this is the "must eat breakfast here" place -then make it so the customer leaves confirming that statement

Overall the place is good. The food, drinks, most of the staff, location, etc. - all good.
Our grip is the rigid rules put in place by the new owners. We were there Friday at 5:00 which fell during their happy hour. We didn't mention it when being seated. I asked the waiter about the happy hour drink specials and she looked at me like I was speaking a foreign language. Another waiter and a manager were brought in. In spite of the manager's desire to help us, apparently he was instructed by someone above him that if we wanted the happy hour drink prices we would have to move to a different table. This seemed silly, all he had to do was say, sure I can adjust the prices. Nope, we had to move per the big boss.
In the end it worked out well for us, we sat by a window in the bar room. Our drinks were 1/2 price and and the evening was great. The restaurant however lost out. We had no intention of ordering any food off the happy hour food list, but since we were moved back to the bar, we ordered half of our food off that menu.
The person we were with has been a long time regular and she shared that the new owners are very rigid, so while the food is still very good, who wants to go to an unaccommodating restaurant. There are too many places who appreciate the business.

I recently had brunch at Sarabeth's and it was a terrible experience. I have severe dairy allergies and ordered an omelet with ONLY spinach. I reminded the waiter about my dairy allergies several times so I felt confident that my omelet would be right. Wrong! After taking a few bites of the omelet, I realized, in fact, they put goat cheese inside the omelet. The manager came over & apologized but it ruined my entire experience. They didn't charge me for the omelet BUT they also did nothing else to compensate for their mistake. Very disappointing all around considering how expensive this place is. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone.

Horrible - restaurant only 1/4 full so no need for our reservation. In fact hostess sat two walk ins who came In after us before us. The worst part is the waitress hardly ever showed up - she seemed to disappear to a back hallway or kitchen for long periods of time. We tried flagging down the other waiters standing around but they were not interested in helping another table. One even said he was busy and couldn't get us water.
Over two hours we had one water refill after the table next to us begged another waiter. We only got one drink from the bar and had to get up to get silverware. End of meal I finally got up and got hostess to get our bill. Horrible horrible service.
How about food - for the price- 50$ a person not good. Fish was bland and slightly over cooked. Blue cheese burger was missing the blue cheese and dry. The calamari was chewy and just like the entree - very bland. So disappointed b/c good ratings-however we weren't the only ones disappointed table next to us and across from us were complaining too. I suggest a manager start walking around asking customers how everything is going and figure out how to improve the place.
I wil never return.

My husband and I spent the weekend in NYC and reserved Sarabeth's for breakfast. We were lucky enough to get an outside table and take in the beautiful views of Central Park and took a long stroll in the park afterwards. The food was fabulous! Had the Lemon Ricotta pancakes - Delish!! The service was on point. Next time we are in NY I plan on having breakfast there again!
Dinner, the duck entree and Barbera wine ...
Dinner, the duck entree and Barbera wine, was delicious. Somewhat oddly, all three of us ordered the same and all loved it. Service was very attentive but not over-bearing. The only negative was that I arrived a couple of minutes before my guests and instead of welcoming me graciously, the maitresse d' peremptorily offered me the bench by the door or the bar. The place was almost empty at 6 pm so there would not have been too much of a risk of seating me at our table ...
During visit to NYC and after long walk ...
During visit to NYC and after long walk in the park, we went to Sarabeth for lunch. I went there years ago for a ladies' brunch and it was just as good today. Great menu, friendly, relaxed service and in as central a location as you can enjoy. The Baby Kale salad, grilled cheese, and tomato soup split between us made for a full lunch and we were not rushed at all. Outside is first come first served but we sat inside and it was a wonderful experience.
Highly recommend for anytime dining.

The menu was extensive but the food was mediocre at best. I ordered the roasted chicken salad and could not eat the chicken because it was slimy and unappealing. Also they don't bring any bread (for lunch) but charge $14.50 for a bread basket with muffins. It is overpriced unexciting food and the service wasn't even good- we had to hunt down our waiter after asking for one minute to review the menu.
