    Oh my...

    We tried a lot of different meals at Ben ash's, breakfast, dinner and dessert, and I must say that everything we had was SUPERB. Anyone who ever visits NYC just has to go to Ben's. I would not miss it for the world. I agree that the food is somewhat expensive but considering the huge portions it is abolsutely worth it. Like one of the waiters said: "In New York we eat a lot.". So there is no need to wait in line at Carnegie's when you can go to Ben Ash's. It is places like this that make NYC great.

    Where's the atmosphere?

    Looked good from the outside but disappointing once seated. Prices are outrageous even for the theater district. Saw others being served and the portions were ridiculously large. There's a minimum $10 or $12 charge per person which is insane with kids. We ordered a piece of cheesecake to go and left without ordering food. Went to Carnegie Deli instead which was good but not great. Ben and Ash cheesecake was very good. Katz's is better than Carnegie as far as pastrami goes. Better atmosphere, too.

    Skip this one

    Saw Ben Ash from the outside, and thought it looked like a good deli. Made the miestake of not leaving once I got there. Place was empty (bad sign). Ordered a corned beef sandwhich, and while the sadnwhich was huge, corned beef was only so-so. No real garlic taste, and some pieces were dark in color. Atmosphere was drab, and waitress barely spoke english.

    Mediocre food, outrageous prices

    The food was fine in the end - but ridiculously overpriced. Service was also terrible - slow and unresponsive. Skip this one.

    Best Cheesecake

    The cheescake is AWESOME! Prices may be a little steep but worth it!

    Expensive, but worth it!

    In response to the other reviewers: Yes, the food is expensive, but it's worth it. And besides... it's the Theatre District!! What do you expect? $1.99 value meals? The serving size makes up for the price. Cheesecake & cookies are a MUST. The burgers are awesome! The deli sandwiches are HUGE a delicious!

    Poor food, expensive prices...

    I normally try to stay away from diners, for though their 10-page menus seek to offer anyone anything they could possibly want to eat, all it really serves to do is ensure that whatever is brought out of the kitchen is going to be of low quality. Ben Ash is the epitome of a poor diner. We were starving, and it was late, so we stopped in. We ended up spending something like $45 for a caesar salad, hamburger, fries and two cokes. All of these items were barely edible. The caeser was something like $18, it was enormous and disgusting. The dressing was warm and smelled vaguely of vomit, or at least heightened the desire to do so. The fries, a seemingly impossible dish to ruin, were not good. They were cold in spots, warm in others, burnt in yet other spots. I really can't recommend avoiding this place enough.
