This Upper East Side gem is "heavenly".... I ordered an egg white omlette with spinach, feta, and onion accompanied by a pumpkin muffin..I've never had such a fresh and fluffy omlette and the muffin was savory and sweet, especially paired with the preserves... There is usally a wait here so try to come on a day off if you are not willing to wait for the goodness. I will definitely be coming back here soon!

Pros: Omlettes, Muffins

Cons: Long wait on weekends

.

Generally I sleep past noon on weekends - but on a Friday I had a good one. The fritatta had red and green peppers with bacon and was light - and huge. The New York Bloody doesn't match the Chicago or Milwaukee - lacked the spice I genrally desire. A side of sauges in peach preserves was a solid choice too. I discovered real English Muffins look nothing like Thomas' brand. Omelettes with Guyere cheese, a front bakery and preserve shop? Very nice.

Pros: Nicest brunch I've been to . . .

Cons: Not the best bloody . . .

This place is TOURIST-UNFRIENDLY. The server tried to squeeze 8 of us into a small 6-people table, and generally very rude, running away from at our mid sentence. Food is just average. Papa pouridge and egg benedict were cold. And they put 20% automatic gratuity on top when we asked for the bill. They don't deserve that and worst still, they simply have developed this practice to treat tourists badly... Don't listen to tourist guidebook or concierge. You will definitely be disappointed. If you must go, skip this one and try the one in upper west side, but prepare for long waits.

Pros: pancake

Cons: bad service, overprice and long wait

I am so upset that we spent $50 on breakfast for 2 people and it was horrible. The bacon was dry and tasteless, the eggs benedict were the worst I've ever had! The french toast was basically just bread with no flavor. If you just want to go for the name and 'trendiness' of this place, expect to spend lots of money on tasteless food. Will never go back there again..Oh, this was my second time there and we only went again to try and give it another shot because Island - next door with awesome food and service- wasn't open yet.

Sarabeth's has great brunch on the Upper East Side! They have eggs and pancakes and salads and sandwiches - including several vegetarian and healthy options. This place is usually pretty crowded so arrive early or be prepared to wait a bit before being seated.

We went to Sarabeth's for a late breakfast on a weekday and we were seated right away. The restaurant is small and cozy and the tables are VERY close together. In fact, the people sitting next to us commented on our conversation! I could of ate off my neighbors plate easily, we were pratically bumping elbows as we ate! The food was good, the portions were adequate, I remember only the jam and coffee as being outstanding. I thought it was too expensive for what you get. The service was okay, the waitress didn't forget anything but she wasn't especially nice and she didn't come back to check on us. We had to flag her down for more coffee and our check. They had a counter where you could get pastries to go, when I picked one, the lady said she didn't work the counter and left. After standing around for a few minutes, I left too.

Sarabeth's is a charming, warm restaurant nustled in the Hotel Wales on the Upper East Side. Sarabeth's menu offers distinct and creative favorites that make it hard to decide. The long lines at Brunch are worth it!

I came here for brunch and was greeted by a friendly staff. The food is very good, and the service was prompt. It's a cute place if you're in the neighborhood, and the baked goods are very delicious.

My friend and I went for breakfast at Sarabeth on May 21, 2006 as it was recommended by the hotel's concierge as the "best breakfast in town". The wait was long, our server was in a horrible mood and never smiled, and both the food and the ambience of the place were average. But what really shocked me was that we were charged 18% gratuity when we received the bill. When I asked her about it, she said that that's their policy. I can understand that for big groups, but it was just the two of us. As we were tourists in NYC, we thought maybe this was the norm so we didn't say anything more. But later found out that the server had actually lied to us. Overall, a terrible experience on our last day in NYC.

Cons: Lousy service, Mandatory 18% Gratuity even for 2 persons

I had brunch there after all the glowing reviews. It was nothing that I couldn't have gotten at a diner only cheaper. Coffee was of diner quality. I had lemon ricotta pancakes. They were 5 or 6 SMALL pancakes with some lemon flavor. Some fresh strawberries were placed on the plate around them. I also had "Holland pork and apricot sausage". They were plain pork sausages sitting in a dish of some apricot sauce. My partner had a standard veggie wrap. Those items with two cups of coffee was 38 dollars. I was not stuffed. The waitress was friendly but very busy. I'd say there are better and cheaper places for breakfast that don't require a 30 minute wait.

My wife and I were in New York for a week and we ate at Sarabeth's Kitchen on the Upper West Side on Amsterdam Ave three of those days. We loved it! Expect big portions and the omelettes were great. I had the french toast which was great too! Not a bad place to see a star or two. Expect a little wait on the weekends.

...the waits are outrageous. I've been to Sarabeth's twice, and both times service was gracious, fast and efficient. The coffee is good, and they keep it coming. The jams and rolls are outstanding, and they make great omelettes and pancakes. The decor, however, is a bit garish (think "cute dollhouse at teatime"), and some of their couches need immediate replacing (I was 2'-3' below the rest of the people in my party; the couch sank that much!). I'm still debating if it is worth waiting for one hour or more.

On a cold Sunday we read the menu in the window. We looked at the other tables and saw the eggs, the waffles, the brunch...but my family fell in love with the soups. Each was a variation on an old standard, five mushroom soup, tomato soup, corn and shrimp cream soup. Each was a good as it gets.

Sarabeth's on the Upper Eastside is a wonderful place to have brunch on the weekend. I have had brunch here many times over the last three years. The french toast is incredible. Expect to wait a long time for a table. To reduce the wait time go early before 11am when it's not crowded yet. Brunch is not cheap here but far from outrageous. Its worth the money.

Went with a group of 8ppl for Sunday brunch...After a 20 minute wait, we were finally ushered into a cozy booth...Coffee was immediately served, but additional sugar and milk had to be requested...I had the ALmond encrusted French Toast with Cranberry-Cherry Sauce and it was delicious!!! Not too sweet, just right...almonds sliced thinly...bread a little chewy and soft and the right amount of sauce drizzled on top...Would have to revisit just to try the other things!

My wife and I went to Sarabeth's East for the first time and we were impressed with the food and ambience. The meal was a little pricey, but I guess that is to be expected since it is on the upper east side and it is very popular. I will definitely visit again when I am in NYC.

Sarabeth's East at The Hotel Wales is a singular New York experience with delicious food, and attentative service. For lunch, I had the chicken pot pie, fresh iced tea, and a great cup of coffee. The pastry for the chicken pot pie was light and the pot pie tasty and elegant. The servers were very professional. It felt like summer time in the country. Other diners were observed with a variety of sandwichs and bruncheon type lunches which looked wonderful. Highly recommended for a great lunch!

Oh, those jams! Sarabeth's jams are among the best I've ever tasted. Apricadabra, Rosy Cheeks (Strawberry Apple), Strawberry-Raspberry, Peach Apricot...they are so blissful. Not too sweet, full of natural, fresh-picked fruit flavor, super chunky--worth the $9 for a pint Mason jar.

If you're in the mood for a hearty breakfast, be sure to try the "three bears style" hot porridge. During the cooler months a homemade chicken potpie is one of the house favorites. Sarabeth's always serves a strong contemporary American…
