Sorry I know people just love this place, but I was disappointed my first time out. Just surprised that as a Jewish Manhattanite that I had not been here up until now. I didn't even care that it didn't look as nice as most homeless shelters, or the bathroom was disgusting...I'm sure some people call that "charm". I tend to judge delis by their corned beef, so while my wife had the sturgeon and fresh orange juice and liked it, I tried a plain old corned beef sandwich. Tasty, but really small for the price. Barely a slap of mustard, and half the meat thrown on the plate. No care at all in preparation. I know where I am, but the waiter was no where to be found to ask for anything..even the check was hard to come by when we were ready. No refill on coffee, no water brought to the table. Everything an extra charge..pickles, cole slaw (which I have tasted better out of a plastic container from the supermarket), capers, tomato..all extra. How about a $2 up charge for an open faced sandwich? Not that they added anything to a regular sandwich to justify it. When the check was thrown on the table, it was completely illegible, except for the bottom line. I even had to go to the register myself to pay because the waiter disappeared again. Next time..sturgeon or whitefish..or maybe not at all!

This restaurant is dirty, cold reception, casual to limit the incorrectness, the "so-called" specialties are low-end and high prices. To avoid completely.

Well try out breakfast with my wife. The food was ok. But the price for food is crazy. Two bagels, cream cheese, with eggs, 2 sandwiches, juices, and tea, the grand total of over $100 crazy right. Never again. This is breakfast over $100 dollars.

The herring and coleslaw were somewhat sweet and the sour dills, too salty. The potato latkes, white omelet with lean tongue plus other entrees, were tasty enough. But our waiter stole the show with his good advice, caring demeanor and clever humor. He, alone, would be reason enough to return.

I love the old "NY vibe" in restaurants, but this place is beyond terrible. The portions are tiny, the food is your average deli food at best and the service is terrible as expected. I useto stop in once a month up until the beginning of 2005 and now will never go back. I dont know what happened, but the quality has become awful. at the same time, the prices are outrageous.

If you know what good bagels and lox are, you go here. If you complain about service and ambiance, go to Bruegger's and get a boiled donut.

Stopped by after so much hype. I found the place to be old and dirty. The lox with eggs was way overpriced. The Oj not bad! The guy behind the counter creeped me out. Go to Zabars.
