It's steep. It doesn't matter. I don't know about the food, but the cheesecake is worth it.

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.

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.

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.

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

The cheescake is AWESOME! Prices may be a little steep 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!
