Servers can be arrogant, the prices are high and the quality is average. BUT, when you have a craving for an All Beef Hot Dog, it is one of only 2 or 3 restaurants in all Mid town that have them, furthermore they deliver. Oh, and they accept credit cards over the phone for delivery..another convenience. Carnegie deli across the street has good food and more reasonable prices but if you want a less hectic deli style atmospher, then BenAsh is a better choice.

Whenever we go to NYC, we always go to Ben Ash without fail. They have fabulous cheesecake, I love the latkes, and my Daddy always gets the pastrami. It may be expensive, yes, but we really think that the quality more than makes up for the price! In fact, the only place my sister will eat cheesecake is Ben Ash! Absolutely wonderful!

We wound up here because it was Christmas Morning and we were hungry. $18 for lox and cream cheese on a bagel? Food was eh. Coffee was not good.

We were at Ben's yesterday (12/19/05), what a disappointment. The only reason we stopped @ Ben's was because the line at Carnegie Deli was 1/2 block long and we did not wanted to wait. We visit NYC frequently and always go to Carnegie & other restaurants. I ordered Latkes, & my friend order Perogies, we both had soup which was very good; my latkes were not made with potatoes it was some kind of cornmeal the taste was nothing like I'm used to. My friends Perogies were some type of dough stuffed with more dough, tasteless. My friends and I as well as my husband & I; visit NYC very frequent; we are only 1 1/2 hrs. from NYC, & we come up to go shopping & go to the Theater, and like to visit different restaurants. Food other than the soup was subpar and the prices are sky high service was poor. For 2 bowls of soup, latkes & perogies, 1 ice tea and 1 decaf coffee the bill was $48 and change. I think this is high for lunch and for what we had.

Menu indicates that you can have eggs the way you like them. When requesting poached eggs the waiter said "We don't make paoched eggs" . When you charge nine dollars for three eggs. The customer should be able to get the eggs the way they want them. Tourist spot or not?

Just wanted to let anyone that yes BenAsh is not for everyone but you pay for quality and good service. This is what you will find at Ben Ash. I love going there everyone is so friendly, they have the best bartender around, I often make the trip and let me tell you you have to try their chicken wings, they are the best. Any of their sandwiches are great too, yes the price isn't cheap but trust me you get a great sandwich and not only is it good but you cannot finish the sandwich, that's how big they are. If you want cheap and just thrown together, I recommend a fast food chain, If you want the best sandwich around then go to Ben Ash.

After walking around with our kids most of the afternoon, we stopped in for a few coffees and desert for the kids. My gut feeling after sitting down and looking over the menu for only a few seconds was, "let's get out of here". A brownie was 6 bucks! add another 2 for ice cream and we were at 8.. then of course a sharing charge because my kids wanted to share it.. We just had 2 coffees.. bill was 15.. for a brownie and two coffies.. ok.. so it's nyc.. i understand. but the thing that got me was the place was unclean! Not recommended.
