Good Sat/Sun morning or afternoon food. Omelettes are great and huge and the Matzoh Ball soup is on point. Gets a little crowded and loud though with screaming kids and you might want to think twice about going if you have an innate fear of strollers. Other than that, service tries its best. Great neighborhood spot.

we are lucky to have Arties on the Upper West Side.

Artie's has awesome fries, and some really good reubens. Delivery is fast, but they love to put you on hold for some reason. The food makes the tedious phone call worthwhile though. (try knish puppies)

I was born in Manhatten as were my parents . I have traveled the world. Arties is a wonderful Deli. The food is great, the service incomparable. There is no downside to this place other than it is not open 24 hours. And I'm no tourist.

The restaurant was clean, the service was variable - our waitress was great to us - but the fella at the door was beyond annoying, the food was all right, but not worth going out of our way for. An ok place to meet people, have something decent, and talk. Not a destination meal.

Go for the delish chocolate chip pancakes and consummate New York-style "service." At all costs, though, avoid the "cheese" omelette -- that is, unless you really love whatever second-rate processed quasi-food material is used as a stand-in when Velveeta is unavailable. In terms of delivery and take-out, be sure to check your order before accepting; they "forgot" an item and when I tried to get my rice pudding they treated me like I was trying to scam them! So much for goodwill -- oh wait, that's right, we don't do goodwill here in New York, because we don't have to -- we're New York, and if you don't like it, well, tough.

My husband and I have given Arties the benefit of the doubt 3 times. This is only due to the fact that it is the only "Jewish Style" deli on the Upper West Side. The Pastrami is *not* deli pastrami, rather it like the pastrami you would find in a bodega. We recently moved from the East side where we loved our delis: Pastrami Queen (Lex & 84th), and 2nd Ave Deli (2nd and 10th) Unfortunately both have been torn down to make way for high-rise condos. Given that, these reviewers, toursist, or not, may never know the true pleasure of a *real* deli sandwich.
