Sarabeth's Best (Brunch) – If you can somehow get past the lines, this place is totally worth it. The food is amazing and the service is impeccable. It is just too bad everyone else knows about it.
Lovely! – I have been to this Sarabeth's West for brunch twice, as well as a couple visits to the other locations. I am always glad I went and often find myself recommending it to others when the topic of brunch arises. The omelettes were delicious, the pancakes were great too... but my favorite thing at Sarabeth's has to be the pumpkin muffins! So yummy! :)
Lunch – Ordered a seafood salad, tomato soup, and ice tea, it was great. Service was cordial. I nice quiet atmosphere to refresh and reflect.
Very Disappointed – After YEARS of hearing about the amazing brunch at Sarabeth's, when I finally went for the first time on Mother's Day I was EXTREMELY disappointed. After waiting for an hour outside, when we finally got in, the place was very loud, and the food was pretty bad. The $15 eggs benedict was awful, the omelet needed some serious seasoning, and the potato "waffles" were rubbery and mushy. The only redeeming parts of the meal were the coffee and the croissant. I MUST point out however, the waitress was FANTASTIC. She was warm and friendly despite the enormous amount of work she was doing. The hostess was also excellent, and working brunch is a tough job.
not the way to spend Easter brunch – In one word: overrated. I've wanted to go here forever and finally pick Sarabeths for Easter brunch. We were a bit turned off when arriving the hostess at the door was completely rude to any person trying to put in their names, she was so rude that one girl said "Im scared of her." After waiting over an hour, the food turned out to be less than desirable. I could have made a better farmers omelet and it only came with a small muffin. They charge you for home fries or other sides. The point is it wasn't worth it. Our brunch club agreed no one will go back. NOT recommended... cook at home or check out better spots.
Enormously popular breakfast cafe finds its success in simple, seasonal cooking. – The Scene
With three outposts around town, Sarabeth's Kitchen has become a well-known and reliable spot for casual dining at breakfast, lunch or dinner. This Amsterdam Avenue outlet has a citified rustic decor featuring small pastry cases, mullion windows, bentwood chairs and brass touches.
Lines form early on weekends for chive-scrambled eggs, pumpkin waffles lavished with sour cream, sticky buns, raisin scones and other quality baked goods. Lunch and dinner follow similar patterns--seasonal highlights include a robust autumn vegetable salad with apples, cheddar and celery root, and the cornmeal-crusted crab cake with julienne beets, sweet peppers and watercress. The dessert selection features simple winners like the candied pecan tarte and the spicy gingerbread ice cream.
Fantastic Meal – From the moment you enter and lay your eyes on the feast of cookies and beautifully jarred pudding, you know you're in for a treat. Many people already rave about the brunch (have the lemon ricotta pancakes with a side of chicken sausage) But their dinner is superb! The butternut squash ravioli is a hit and you can never fail with any one of their seafood specials. It is truly a welcome dining experience when you consider the long waits, arrogant staff and mediocre food at trendier places in the city. Sarabeth's west is a GEM.
Sunday Brunch is a Must! – There's a reason why the wait is so long for this UWS cafe. Well, there's are actually two reasons: 1. They don't take reservations. 2. Their breakfast/brunch menu is superb. I highly recommend the eggs benedict or the lemon and ricotta pancakes (they taste like a light version of homemade Italian cheesecake). Just be prepared to wait for at least 30 minutes for a table if you arrive after 10 am on a Saturday or Sunday.
Best Brunch on UWS! – The omelettes are so great here and so are the muffins. Cute atmosphere, service is great and you aren't sitting on top of each other like in a lot of other places. I love coming here - now only if they took reservations.
Great Food! – I went here on a sunny summer day, and received great service and food. My boyfriend and I went to eat after reading the rave reviews from citysearch to sarabeths, and we weren't disappointed. Everything was excellent.. the orange jiuce.. the omelette,potatoes, desserts etc. The waiter was very attentive. I will go again..soon.
