I guess when you're hungry and tired you'll pay anything, however, no one can be that hungry to pay $15 for a BLT. It was supposed to be 1 pound of meat, instead I got 4 small pieces of burnt bacon and 3/4 pound of lettuce in the sandwhich. The close slaw tasted like it had been sitting out on the counter all day. The location was good, however, the service was half-ass and the food tasted like full ass. Go down the street to Star Diner - it's worth the extra block you have to walk.

Huge portions, delicious cheesecake, but prices are not necessarily good value for money and some tables are too small.

Just gor back from our first trip to NYC. We arrived late and our hotel was right across the street from the Ben Ash Deli so we went in. The food and cheese cake were great and our waiter, Steve, was wonderful. We ate there several more times and the food and service were excellent. To boot, several big name Broadway, TV, and films stars were there while we were. Yes, the prices are a bit high, but not much more than anywhere else we ate.

The prices are high but the protions are HUGE. The quality was great. 1lb sandwiches big enough to feed 2 or more if you want to share. The cheesecake was fabulous, best I've ever had. We had an excellent watier, Steve, he made our experience wonderful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I asked for takeout and ordered a Sandwich, Knish, Soda and Cake. When I arrived home (1 Hour by Subway) there was no cake ($6.95.) I called and the manager said to drop by and he would give me the cake. Five days later I stopped in and the manager said he did not remember and he refused to make good on his promise. This is called adding insult to injury!!! WATCH OUT!!!

The sign out front says "Why stand in line @ Carnegie's?" The answer is quite obvious--this place is to be avoided. We were seated at a tiny 2top--I'm 6'3". When I asked if we could move to an empty 4, I was told it would cost an additional $40.00! The waiter was friendly, the pickles were good, portions generous, prices outrageous and shrimp salad inedible! Follow the crowd and stay away!
