While some things here are mediocre (i.e. the potato pancake) , the brisket sandwich is always good and comforting. The matzo ball soup is a bit underseasoned for me, but ok...my husband loves the chopped liver and pastrami sandwich and the pickles. Don't bother with the knish puppy...not good. The service is always a bit slow and grumbly, but it is one of the few places that we can really get this kind of food on the UWS anymore!

After the theater my wife and I just wanted a snack. She had split pea soup and blintzers. Both very good. I had a huge whitefish platter with lots of lettuce, onions and tomatoes and a bagel. What a deal for $ 12.95. Our waitress was very polite and very prompt. We will definately go back there.

I loved Artie's when it first opened and I could rely on that place to give me that good taste of Jewish style cuisine. This time, after tasting it, it was clear that the herring that came out was a mixture of some that was a little "old" with some that was fresh. I sent it back, ordered another kind of fish, took the tomato garnish off the top of the whitefish and, AGAIN, a mixture of the old and new. I didn't have to taste it, I could SEE it. My waitress was patient and polite, but there are clearly some problems at Artie's these days.

We ate here twice over the winter with decent service and good food. our third time here, will be out last. the hostess/server told us with our shopping bags, it will be difficult to seat us, despite the place being half full. and as we instructed the server how we wanted the food prepared, which took a couple of times to explain "plain, high and dry" to him, amazingly he still got it wrong. that same hostess/server reached across our table three times, once for the mustard, then the ketchup and then the sugar, not to refill but to use for another table, not once asking if we needed them. then our waiter asked us if we wanted anything else, while we were still eating, cause he was leaving...apparently he wanted his tip early. the food was better the first two time, as the corned beef and pastrami this last time was overdone and was like rubber.

Delicious pastrami, no matter what the dish is. I ate pastrami for the first time at Artie's and I have never bothered to order anything without pastrami since then. Their potato salad is delicious as well.

Truly poor service. Rude wait staff and management. They do not seem interested in my business so I will never eat here again.

It's the only one in the neighborhood and sometimes a corned beef dybbuk takes over and I have to have a sandwich. At nearly $11 a pop, an extra slice of bread allows for a little sharing. To my surprise, that slice is charged at $.30 per. Must be a sign of the times, wasn't true ever before. Fries taste like they were steamed in fat. Phooey! Customer service is no joy either.
