One of the best happy hours in town. Our waiter was charming and helpful. Food was fresh and delicious. The room was a bit too noisy whe we first arrived, as there were some large parties with a lot of kids. We asked to be seated in the back and they couldn't accommodate. But that was the only downside.

I was visiting New York City and one of my girlfriend's friends recommended this place for brunch. I had a few other places in mind that I wanted to visit for brunch so I wasn't too eager to go but I am very happy that we ate here.
The ambiance was nice, it had a bit of a vintage feel with exposed brick and beams and all of the banquets, walls, etc. were variations of white. Very cool look. There were families as well as groups of friends so I think that it's a spot that anyone can go to for brunch.
We had a few mimosas and other drinks at my table and none of the drinks disappointed. My girlfriend and I ordered the Popeye eggs and fluffy french toast. We loved them both.
The service was great. We didn't feel rushed and our waitress didn't visit our table every two minutes to interrupt our conversation, but she was attentive when we needed her to be.
I would definitely recommend going to Sarabeth's in Tribeca.

We had some friends in town who wanted to go to brunch on a Sunday. There were some highlights but overall, given Sarabeth's reputation and price range, we were all disappointed in our experience.
The design and decor are great. The noise level seemed overwhelming at first but it was fine once we sat down. It's a big space but it somehow feels cozy.
Muffins, croissants and jam are excellent. We started with the muffin basket and it was the highlight of our meal.
Bussers did their job admirably - waters were always full; empty plates were cleared away quickly.
Service would have been fine if not for two things - nobody ever asked us if we wanted refills on our drinks - we finished them halfway through the meal and drank water the rest of the time; one of us has a pecan allergy and when we asked if one of the muffins had any nuts, the server said "I don't know, but we have an EpiPen if you need one." Perhaps it was a joke, and we're a jovial bunch, but the correct (or additional) response should have been, "let me ask."
Entrees were terribly disappointing - nothing was hot, everything was lukewarm or cool; two of us had omelettes that were runny and undercooked, we ate the cooked parts but left the undercooked parts; the English muffin was either stale or sat under a heat lamp for too long; the Adult Grilled Cheese is an embarrassment - a pretzel roll with a piece of rubbery cheese on it, what's adult about that?; the "velvety" and "world famous" tomato soup was chunky and cold; the steak sandwich was the best of our entrees but lacked seasoning (which I realize is a subjective complaint).
If this was a mom-and-pop shop, I most likely wouldn't be leaving this review because I've worked brunch shifts as a server before and they're not easy, but Sarabeth's has a reputation for being a brunch mainstay in NYC, and we left feeling pretty unsatisfied.

Dinner is not an option. I live across the street and have had dinner on several occasions, mostly for the convenience. Saturday nights are usually quiet, as was the case last Saturday. We were seated in a 'strange', distant corner and 'ignored' for quite some time. Service was extremely slow and ambivalent. Generally, I avoid this restaurant for dinner, but thought I'd give it another chance. Not doing that again!
Very disappointing.... There was no apology from the person who tried to intervene. This could have been resolved on a better note. This shows a lack of professionalism and not caring about their customers, especially those who are local and have had brunch and other meals here over the years. If it wasn't for their brunch, I don't know how they could stay open. Frankly, treating us like this, I don't know how they will survive. I have lived in Tribeca since 1978. Restaurants should treat their customers (and neighbors)better.

Not the most amazing experience. Very loud group at the bar Saturday night and they were screaming and cheering watching the NFL. Our waitress hovered over us the entire night and gave us a dessert menu while our guest was still having their dinner. My seabass had so many bones, I almost choked on one! Didn't realize the restaurant had 2 large televisions, not really the kind of experience I was looking for.

Been to other Sarabeth's - this one was disappointing. Went here straight from work on a Friday night with a good friend whom I hadn't seen in a while. Bar was very loud (but vibrant if you're out for drinks with a crowd), so we asked to be seated further away so we could talk. As it turns out, the "quiet" section was full of toddlers and babies - lol. They were gone by 8, but by then I'd been served a very rare steak after I'd ordered it medium. By the time it came back the "frites" were cold. Service was acceptable. Overall experience was sub-par as was the food. For the price of my mediocre steak frites - I could have gotten a great one at Les Halles. My friend ordered a chicken pot pie - which she said was just "okay". I will never revisit this place - no upside to it - just a very mediocre experience.

Our last meal while visiting New York - Brunch on Saturday - was sadly a disappointing experience.
Average food, cold toast, no extra coffee and we were rushed to pay and get out for the next customer.
We did not feel like valued customers rather in a production line for the convenience of the owners.

I've been to Sarabeth's before at other locations, but this was my first visit to this one. Honestly, I was a little disappointed. My food came out and it was cold. Coffee refills were infrequent. They did allow us to stay and chat for about an hour before asking us politely to leave, which was generous on a busy Sat (I admit that it was rude for us to stay so long, but it had been 10 years since I had seen my friends and we lost track of time). Our server was very nice. But the food was just okay.

Wanted to adore this place because of great reviews but food was cold after waiting a long time for it all to arrive. Would have asked to have food replaced but sending eight egg dishes back -- which can't be reheated like other dishes-- would have taken even more time. Lovely atmosphere though and menu offers something for everyone.

The restaurant was completely empty but for 2 tables, the food is good but the portions are super big to the point they don't fit in the table and the service was very slow .... So it is great for adults and big children but not for toddlers and preschoolers that lack of patience .... Lastly the AC was insane .... It was 65 outside in felt 10 degrees colder inside.

Had friends visiting from Ecuador and Montreal and wanted to show them the quintessential NYC brunch. Sarabeth's didn't dissapoint. The food was excellent as always. My absolute favorite is the popover with egg and cream cheese. Oh, and the apple/chicken sausage too.

It was a sentimental choice, as it was at this location of Sarabeth's that my husband and I came on our wedding day for a celebratory brunch after our wedding, two years ago that very day. Our party then consisted of eight people; tonight it was only ourselves. Without knowing, the hostess showed us to the same table where we had sat two years ago. Although it might not have mattered much what we ordered to eat and drink, the fact that it was all good and delicious helped us celebrate our happiness that much more.

I've been here many times. I don't suggest people without children go during the weekends - especially for brunch. It is absolutely mobbed with kids. And it is very hard to hear your own party over the noise. The prices are too high for what you get. Also, the line for the bathrooms was about 10 people long. They need to get it together.

Sarabeth's is probably still great for brunch, and the food is well-prepared. But the service was extremely poor and tired. They don't do dinner as well as they do breakfast/brunch. It was not a busy night and sometimes on busy nights, restaurants under perform. That could be the case here. The white pepperoni pizza was very good. The macaroni and cheese and the adult grilled cheese were also very good. Good food but the waiter was absent at each stage of the meal. Like pulling teeth.

I was disappointed with the service and the noise level. Family was in town and were staying in battery park, so with the hurricane looming... someone recommended sarabeth's because outdoor dining was out and it was within walking distance. When I walked in, I had never been there before, the noise level was deafening... when the six of us were seated the server seemed annoyed and uninterested in serving us... I believe she rolled her eyes a couple of times and believe me we were not a tough crowd. At a round table for six it was difficult to hear one another. The food and the prices were good enough but I would never go back.

This is a high end experience. The food was delicious, carefully prepared. The decor is charming. The tables are not too close to each other. All nice. But the service was outstanding. For example, the waiter gave me a choice of several different kinds of milk for my coffee. When I ordered skim milk and subsequently ordered an omelet with goat cheese, he asked if I would like the cheese on the side (as he realized I was fat conscious - without him actually saying so) Wow!. Also very polite and attentive without being unctuous. Loved it.
Very attentive and helpful service from ...
Very attentive and helpful service from both the restaurant host and server (Mackenzie).
The seafood cobb salad was excellent. The tomato soup was tasty and just the right temperature. The One Great Beef burger was expertly cooked with some yummy fries.
I enjoyed the the lump crab meat spaghetti and the proscuitto & burrata appetizer immensely. I often dine at Sarabeth Park Avenue South location during my lunch hour with an old friend and they have never disappointed us there. Thank you for a memorable dinner at Sarabeth Tribeca!

This was my second visit to Sarabeth's. My first visit was fantastic on all fronts and that was the reason that I made reservations for a special family brunch.
I ordered the almond crusted French toast because I loved it the first time but sadly this visit did not live up to that experience. The portion size is great but the toast was not done well enough--too mushy in the middle.
My husband ordered the Lumberjack and to all our surprise the portion sizes if the items were an insult. We don't look at the prices when we eat out but we did after his plate arrived.
My son ordered the blueberry lemon ricotta pancakes and they seemed to be missing the ricotta.

Fresh tomato thin brick oven with basil strips on top. Order the tiny fresh clams on a raised platter on ice! Perfection! My husband loved his gin and tonic. Very personable bartender who knows how to make a drink!

I took my family from out of town for my birthday and they loved it! It's a touch pricey, but there is something for everyone and everything is fantastic. Our waitress was courteous and attentive without being overbearing and overall it was a great dining experience.

As a born-and-bred New Yorker, I had always heard of, but never dined here. A buddy was in town from the West Coast, so we decided to grab brunch here.
I had checked the menu in advance and was looking forward to sampling some of their famous dishes. I made a reservation and while the hostess was seating us I asked if we could have a larger table as we would be ordering a large amount of food. The hostess rudely replied that they were all booked. Well, I watched the traffic coming in/out of the restaurant for the entire 2 hours we were there and the 4-seat tables to the left/right of us were never filled.
Furthermore, I ordered eggs "over hard" and they delivered what were basically scrambled eggs. When I questioned the waiter, he too, gave me attitude and said that I was incorrect and that these were eggs "over hard." I was already disappointed by the hostess' rudeness, so I did not bother to pursue the matter further.
The lemon ricotta pancakes were plentiful and tasty, as was the chicken-and-apple sausage. The four-flower juice is also worth trying.
Needless to say, the staff/service left a bad taste in my mouth, so they have lost what could have been a potentially loyal customer.
