As said below, the sandwiches are generously sized, and the pastrami is moist and tasty. However, one thing soured my meal experience at Arties. If you are a frequent eater at New York City diners, you will know that they always go around with a coffeepot offering to "top up" your cup. You are only charged for one cup no matter how many refills they give you. My husband and I had one cup and one refill each, and on our bill we were charged for FOUR CUPS. This is, in my opinion, sneaky and dishonest. I wager that most people accepting the offer of a refill think that it's free. It isn't. It was only $3.50 all told, but it left enough of a bad taste that we won't be returning to Artie's.

Been going here since I was young. I always loved the oversized meat filled sandwiches and they were always made to my liking. Floor is kinds slippery at times and the men's bathroom is tiny. Overall, a great casual place to grab a bite to eat either for lunch, dinner, or just a quick snack. The enormous selection of desserts even makes it more appealing.

Keep walking when you see this diner... Looks super cute from the outside, but the food selection is poor, and the food quality isn't the best. The worst thing about the meal was the milkshake. It says its the Best Chocolate or Vanilla milkshake. Well.. it's not. Super thin, almost as if they just poured milk, a small dollop of vanilla ice cream, and that nestle chocolate syrup. It was not good, and for $5 I would have expected it to taste a lot better. Also came out in the same size/look glass that the water came in! Only good thing about this place, the waitress was nice and friendly... and the fries were good.

I have been to almost all the Jewish delis in the city including Katzs and 2nd ave deli. Let me say that Artie's is just as good if not much better than the others. Anyone who complained in the posts below is just a natural complainer in general. How silly not to go eat someplace because there is a sign in the front. Get over yourself! I was just there the other day once again and the pastrami and corned beef sandwich was extra tasty with no fat whatsoever. That place is also a good value for what you get.

Any restaurant that has a sign saying "My son is going to medical school special" is off my list. I would be embarrassed to go there. Even if there food was fantastic. Which it's not. If you don't believe me, give it a try. You're going to wish you had a son in medical school.

Arties serves good deli food, which is Russian food under another name. Their stuffed cabbage is better than any of the Polish/Russian/Ukrainian restaurants in Manhattan. When I'm sick I order the chicken soup from Arties because its made from fresh chicken, not stock, and tastes much better. The restaurant itself is a glorified diner inside, but the tables in front are sunny.

How does this place survive? Fatty-tasteless corned beef (which is a hard thing for a deli to do-fatty AND tasteless), cheese blintzes with no cheese and matzo ball soup that would shame my grandmother(ball like a rock-tasted like box consume-no chicken-it's a shame! Tacky, cold interior-loud-loud music, and hostess who can't be bothered to seat you cuz they are texting! It's NYC, and it's a shame this place is what people think a jewish deli should be.
