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.

We have been enjoying brunch at Arties for years but the key is to get there before 11:45am. A minute later will result in a long wait with tons of big groups. The waitresses all know us and have been carrying our daughter around ever since she was born a few years ago. Going there makes miss my jewish mom a bit less. Love it. Go for the Navy BEan soup on the weekends or the matzo ball anytime. Hubby loves the matzo brie and the tuna salad.

Fantastic Pastrami Bean soup on the weekends. Wonderful Split Pea soup during the week. Huge servings. Great staff. And you gotta try the fresh deli pickles they bring to the table.

Maybe it's because this place is around the corner from the Children's Museum and it gets alot of kids. Whatever it is, these ladies are just not friendly at all and their attitudes make it even worse. But if you're looking to get some good Diner food and good portions of it for a good price then this place is great. Just don't expect your food or drinks for a while - and that's if the waitess decides to remember your order the first time. Get her while you can because she won't make too many visits to your table.
