Sarabeth's Park Avenue South Ratings and Reviews
First time the host recognized me and welcomed me back -- she said she recognized my smile. I've being going there several times monthly for more than a year. I had a very light business breakfast and it lingered, buy we never felt the staff was pushing us out or rushing us AT ALL which sometimes happens on weekends. Very impressed with our waiter. Very happy we avoided "the rude host" -- he can ruin any meal there.
The service was so inefficient. Servers were preoccupied. Seems like a union environment. Coffee delivered with no milk/cream. Cream came but delay was so long coffee was cold. Took twenty minutes to be greeted. Food came fast and was good. But service was overall poor.even after a manager came by to help.
I am giving it a fair mark for service only because the waiters kept trying to clear our plates when we were obviously in the middle of our meal. We couldn't understand why they were rushing us out when there were a lot of open tables. Nothing worst then being rushed out. . .
Otherwise the food was great as always!
Sarabeth's in the evening is the perfect place to go as it's quiet and you can talk. We were a large group and there is something for everyone. While the wine is very good, it's a bit pricey for an ordinary bottle of wine. The food, service are great. Highly recommend not just for brunch, but other quieter times of the day.
Large modern space can accommodate an intimate meal to large group get-togethers. Varied menu that would suit everyone. Went recently for brunch, food served quickly, everything was hot, food was tasty. Sometimes it's hard to find a good brunch space so I'm glad this space is around.
not all it is cracked up to be. I have heard about it for years and was so excitied to have breakfast there. The blueberry pancakes were dry. I asked the wiater to keep our food warm while my friend was in the ladies room. He couldn't figure out how to do that!
Had an early Sunday dinner with my boyfriend and another couple. The ambiance is beautiful, clean, modern. The bar has bar snacks and nice cocktails. Service was wonderful and attentive without being intrusive. The menu is very varied and has lots of wonderful appetizers for sharing. We loved the oysters and meatballs. The grilled octopus was okay but a little overcooked and sitting in a big bowl of beans. Just the octopus sliced on a plate with seasoning would have been more appetizing. The entrees were all great - we had everything from lobster roll, a seafood salad and personal pizza to a filet of branzino. The desserts were terrific and appealing to the eye- we had a cookie plate and a flight of ice cream sandwiches! The only real negative for me was that the restrooms are located ALL the way in the back, out a door, down a hallway and then you had a choice of steps to a full restroom (which was very nice) located in a freezing basement OR two unisex, clean restrooms on the main floor but with a very bad odor problem. Something definitely wrong with the air intake/outtake system. Overall, a great restaurant and bar, in a nice area but with TERRIBLE restroom issues.
This is the least kid friendly Sarabeth's I've been to. We were asked to switch tables after we've settled down-- because we had two toddlers! They also didn't offer crayons and such as other Sarabeth's do. Service was slow and we had to call someone's attention to get service. And it was just 10am. The pastry basket we ordered was not freshly baked, they were stone hard and so not worth the price.
Our waiter Jared made the experience amazing. He was so attentive (not too much so), anticipated our needs (always there with coffee--iced and regular) and was just lovely. Everyone who works at Sarabeth's should be like Jared. The food was good as always, too.
My husband and I went here for brunch yesterday and the food was nothing notable. I had the farmer's omlette and my husband had the chicken sausage and kale frittata. Both were lacking flavor and the frittata was thin and had no color to it. I did have a five flower mimosa which was very good and the service was good. I wouldn't go back based on the caliber of food served. We have had better at our local diners for half the price.
i was very disappointed with sarabeth's.
the service was less than stellar...when we asked the waiter if he liked a particular dish, his answer was "no"...when asked if it was the popover he didn't like, his response was "i've never tried it, i just don't like the way it looks"...and the service didn't get any more impressive from there...and a minimally talented home cook would have prepared more flavorful food.
thankfully, it was only breakfast.
First time here, since the wonderful Primehouse shut down. Friends from out of town were in the city, and we came here for brunch. They were having what they said were 'excellent' cocktails when we arrived, and they looked pretty happy (!) The four of us sampled different brunch items: the regular eggs benedict, the salmon version, the "goldie lox" plate and the egg and chive cheese stuffed popover. All were served with a delicious side salad, perfectly dressed. The winner was the popover, which my friend let me (reluctantly) taste. These incredibly light fluffy eggs were stuffed into an equally light and fluffy popover. My salmon benedict was good, but I'll be going back for that! Even though it was crowded at 10:45 a.m. on a Sunday, the service was top notch and the noise level very reasonable. All in all, very enjoyable.
Sarabeth's was disappointing. The maitresse d' was not especially friendly or helpful, the service was very slow and the food was in no way special other than in costliness. On the plus side, it's an attractive room, they are kid friendly (I guess that's a plus) and the menu is broad enough to have something for everyone. My conclusion is that there are many better brunch options nearby.
We should have gotten the pancakes. The eggs Benedict was bland and on homemade bread that was bland. The egg stuffed popover was supposed to be amazing yet very underwhelming. I ordered a crossiant with fresh preserves to get a better taste in my mouth. Crossiant was not fresh baked. Apricot Preserves were delicious. They sell that there The pancakes looked amazing. Overrated. Disappointing.
The waiter seemed like he was trying to hurry us through our meal. He brought us the check unasked when we actually wanted the dessert menu. There was a lipstick stain on one of the glasses when we sat down and the busboy seemed irritated when we pointed it out and asked for a new one. Lastly, waitstaff dropped glassware near us twice, resulting in shards everywhere. The food was good but I'll be bringing my business to the other Sarabeth's locations.
Service was horrible. I never felt so unwanted. Server's name on the check was 'Rangel'. He rushed us through our meal. Never asked if I wanted a drink. Never checked back once the food was dropped. Never asked if we wanted dessert. The host that walked us to the table was amazing (tall African-American gentleman) though. Chit-chatted with us and was very hospitable. Food was cold and I ended up being ill for the rest of the day throughout the evening. I would not recommend.
Very minimal attention from waitstaff.
Took some time to place order, never checked on us. Took time to remove plates after we were done. Causally asked if we wanted to see dessert when we replied yes felt like he was bothered.
Won't be back due to lack of service. Plenty of other places I can go to for lunch in the area.
