Sarabeth's Park Avenue South Ratings and Reviews
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.
I'm a big fan of Sarabeth's but my meal was a disappointment. It was described as a "Crabcake Sandwich" but there was no roll or bread. The crabcake was quite tasty but also quite small and not good value for the $25 price. I will not get it again. The ambiance on Park Avenue South is subdued elegance and the staff are superb.
The food was excellent. Had the octopus and scallop carpacio to share and the cod for my main. Everything I tasted was great. After we were served our meal, no one paid us much attention. Not sure if they just wanted to leave us to enjoy our meal or if the staff was spread too far apart though.
Went to sarabeth's on a Saturday night and it was fairly empty and slow, to the point that my boyfriend and I were wondering why there was no one there on a weekend night. To that end, it was odd that the service was very slow. We were sitting for about 15+ minutes before a waitress came to help us out. The rest of the dinner was more or less of the same, overall a pretty bad experience and we won't be back
I just found a new favorite. Came with my aunt to celebrate restaurant week and did not order from the restaurant week menu. I can't come here without having my tomato soup, as it's the best in town. They also make a delicious salmon dish I highly recommend.
Very spacious, airy room with lots of tables.
Somewhat upscale ambiance typical of the restaurants on the Park Ave South corridor. Service was very professional and the food was very good for brunch with lots of unusual choices. A little on the pricey side but our group enjoyed dining there and plan to go back soon.
I was with a fun group on a Saturday night and the crowd was more elderly and having a quiet night or even families with babies and young children so the vibe was very different at our table compared to those tables.
Our server messed up our order a number of times but was nice about it and the manager took off one of the items off the bill once we said something about it.
Food was extremely bland, as it was the last time we ate there. We will not eat there again. EVER. The tables were so close together and we could hear every word from the table next to us and it made it impossible to relax and enjoy conversation between us.
We went to Sarabeth's for brunch, before a 2pm broadway show for my sister's birthday. They kept to our reservation time, provided great service and recommendations and were friendly.
The food was amazing. They do a good job at putting a new flair on traditional breakfasts, sandwiches, etc.
the portions were also good. They were not tooooo much where you feel guilty for leaving (and who really takes the food to go when you are in manhattan for a show), but they were not small either.
When we got there at 11:30 for our reservation the place was alive. It not packed. When we left around 1 it was full.
It's not a place for leggings and uggs, I would be in jeans or better.... but I'm sure no one would stand out if they were dressed down a little.
I also saw some babies there so if you can keep your kids behaving well, they can accommodate.
I have dined at this location on many occasions and have always been happy with the service and food. It is my go to place for a quick catch up with friends or a quiet business meeting.
This particular day, things seemed off. It was brunch and at 12:30 they had already run out of some menu items. They offered substitutions without asking or informing me . The wait staff is always attentive and not intrusive but this time I had to ask more than 2x for more hot water for tea.
I will be back but perhaps not for Sunday brunch.
Cannot believe how great eggs can be. Had the egg frittata and it was amazing!
The blood orange mimosa was worth coming back for as we're the scones and jam
Skip the cappuccino.
Went on a crazy Sunday for brunch and even though we had a reservation still waited 30 minutes at 11:00 am for a table.
Definitely the place to be and it was delicious though pricey
Had breakfast with the family on Saturday morning. Had heard great things about the place, so wanted to give it a try. Cool spot and the service was very good, but the food was just fair. Our group of four had two different types of french toast, an omelette, an assortment of muffins, a side of crispy bacon and juices. The highlights were the bacon and juice.
I went to Sarabeths for my birthday and had an outstanding time. The food was excellent as always, and we had a great waiter.
They were able to seat us in a great booth where it was quiet and we could talk.
At the end, without even asking. They brought out a small piece of cake with a candle in it. It really made the night that much more special!
Usual busy, cold food, brisk service. Sarabeths was great when it was a singular restaurant on Madison Ave in the 1980's. Ever since, the name precedes the experience. Breakfast or brunch food is hard to serve hot, and they still havent figured it out as a restaurant for the masses. I have been to 3 locations; all the same experience. Also, I have no issue spending for quality, but the 19.00 pancakes are awful- no buttermilk taste. A single serving of butter and a tiny cup of fancy syrup make the experience even worse as one has to wait 10 minutes to get a server for more condiments as the food gets colder and colder. I will never dine at any location ever again as I have tried to enjoy but just cannot.
Frequented Sarabeths original "kitchen" back in 1984 and then over the next couple decades as empire expanded. Haven't been in at least 15 years but was back in NYC for a visit and needed an easy, theoretically "decent, good meal " location....we've had better omelets at a truck stop. They tasted as though they were made with packaged cartons of eggs, actually no taste in spite of three different varieties ordered by our table. And they were not inexpensive. On par with same purported caliber of other nyc eateries like this but certainly expected fast/flavor/freshness. Service was spotty in that had to ask for hot coffee top up but seemed to be lots of wait staff around.
Server was very inattentive. Never followed up to see if our meals arrived as ordered. Never acknowledged a new guest had joined. Had to ask for honey 3 times and received it when my tea had gone lukewarm. Food was bland and over priced. To their credit, I will only say that the reservationists was very flexible and accommodating with our large party reservation. Otherwise service and food was subpar.
