    Stay away

    I should have walked on when I couldn't see a menu on the outside and the place was nearly empty. Service was poor - for a start, I had to wait ages for them to take my order. I was halfway through my starter when they brought my main course out! Main course (grilled chicken, no mention of BBQ sauce) was smothered in the stuff - couldn't eat it. Had to wait ages for the check - and they brought that out to me without taking away the dirty plate. When I only tipped 10%, was grumbled at and was told that I should tip 20%. I explained why I thought that that was what I thought the service was worth and the waiter seemed to accept my point. Atmosphere was bad - the place was empty so the staff were fooling around. Stay away! I'm not going back.

    I was in NYC for the first time last weekend, and on our last day we had lunch at BEN ASH DELICATESSEN , the menu looked good, so we went in. We did not enjoy the food at all, it is definately not worth the price. We had 2 chicken noodle soups (that tasted funny), one foot long hot dog (that was wrinkle beyond recognition), 2 soft drinks and a dessert that was so hard that it could break a window. The bill was $49! On top of everything, we got harrassed by the waitress because she didn't like the tip we had left her.

    First - the service was sluggish and incompetent. They charged us for things that we didn't order and upon mentioning this to the help told us: "I didn't take your order." (Well at least you won't be getting our tip). Second - the food is not good. Third - the price. $15 for a croissant w/ bacon? $4 for Tropicana orange juice that the advertise as "hand squeezed?" Do not, for the love of your wallet and stomach, venture into this establishment.

    Don't be lured by the window

    The window has wonderful looking pastries. That's the highlight. Keep walking. The pastries are OK, but not worth the $13/person minimum charge. This place is a rip-off. Our server was a nice young lady, but not much of a server. She was the highlight of an otherwise infuriating experience. My wife & I are still joking about the $31 bagel, bacon, pastry, and 2 coffees. Ack!

    How Ben Ash stays in business is beyond me, because I can't fathom that they have even a single repeat customer. I recently moved to the city and suggested to a friend that we try this place since I had walked past it several times before. Very long story short - we walked out having been served food that was nearly inedible, treated very rudely by the waitstaff, and $58 poorer for the experience.

    Way Too Expensive

    So my friends and i went to this resturant thinking oh not so expensive. We get hit with the menu $9 for eggs just an omlette and then to top it off the server comes by with the check and tells us we must add 20% gratuity even though we were just 4 of us. Waste of money...wayy over priced for the boring atmosphere it presents

    Overpriced and not recommended

    Outrageously priced, poor food thrown at you by rude people. There are plenty of other REAL New York Delicatessens within steps of this place. How they survive is beyond me; I guess a new bunch of victims gets off of the plane every day.
