    Have eaten here several times. Always delicious. The portions are very large and filling. I recommend arriving hungry. They have a big menu but everything from the roast beef to the french toast is excellent! You can't go wrong.

    Worst Chicken Noodle Soup EVER

    I have been suffering from a horrible cold and the only thing I wanted was some chicken noodle soup. So my husband ordered us some soup from Second Avenue Deli, along with a pastrami sandwich and a chocolate babka. We ordered a quart of the soup. I wish I could post photos on menupages to show you what the soup looked like. It was 95% broth and the rest was just noodles. No chicken, no little pieces of carrrot. Nothing. It basically looks to me like they make one broth and toss it with some noodles to make chicken noodle soup. The pastrami and babka were good, but when you are sick, there is nothing like a good chicken noodle soup and this just is a disgrace to an establishment that claims to be the best at anything.

    Absurd Prices

    After a few months, the 2nd Ave. Deli uptown draws few customers, and empty tables every night tell the truth that prices are simply way too high, even for the UES. Only foreign tourist in midtown, and expense account lunch customers in midtown, pay such prices for sandwiches and soup and such. And to think, you must pay extra for lean meat in your sandwich, if you don't want fat and grizzle. Sorry, 2nd Ave., but your prices are too high and I won't come back to your deserted restaurant.

    Finally Got There but Never Again

    Went with a friend on Sunday morning for breakfast: over $50.00 for a disappointing meal. My pastrami hash was tasteless and her potato pancakes were greasy. Eggs on my has were ordered 'over easy' and arrived over and hard. Well, I've been wanting to check it out and I'm glad I did for breakfast and not for dinner. Prices are absurd.

    Soup-er Disappointed

    Ordered a large chicken noodle soup for take-out. For $16 I got a quart of tasty broth, a few limp noodles and no chicken. Won't ever go back. Prices are obscene, even for upper east siders.

    Still the best

    I don't know what some reviewers are talking about: there is no better matzoh ball soup in the city, period. Prices are relatively high but so is the quality of the food. This is the real deal. Been there several times and service always lovely. This a like a scene from a Woody Allen movie...love it. Get the soup and 1/2 sandwich special for $16. A huge amount of food and they give you cole slaw and the best pickles and a shot of chocolate soda when you are done. The best.
