On our trip to the city, we were looking for a yummy dessert. The wonderful looking chocolate cigars in the window lured us inside. We took-out two brownies and two cigars for a total of $17. We always expect to pay more in the city, but this was unbelievable. On the ride home I reviewed the menu and gasped at the high prices......higher than any other deli in town. When we got to our hotel, I couldn't wait to taste our desserts. How disappointing it all was. Service was very nice though. Sorry folks...Wouldn't recommend this one.

They have a very good reuben sandwich, and they have always helped us out with our children spliting their meals. Very pricy however we go there once a year during our annual trip to NYC.

Our group consisted of 2 adults and 3 children all under the age of 7. For one thing, the place did not have a children's menu. When we told the waitress that 2 of the children were going to share a plate of pasta, she came back and told us that we would have to pay a plate sharing charge of $3. That seemed ridiculous given that the restaurant was nearly empty and that kids were the ones sharing. Aside from that, the service was poor and the food mediocre. The prices were high too for the amount and quality of the food received. There are definitely better choices out there!

$100 for four people. For BREAKFAST. We've never paid that much for breakfast in our lives and never plan to again. Yes, the server was nice to our children, but the bill just blew us away. Bagels with a schmeer, some lox, pancakes for the six year old and a croissant for the eight year old and the city's worst coffee. Certainly not worth $100.

We went here because it looked like a decent place to eat. We ended up spending something like $58 on four people(three of whom actually ate, one just got coffee). The waiter got all flustered when I asked for my eggs a certain way, and he acted like we were being incredibly disagreeable, whatever we said. The coffee wasn't good. Food was edible, but not very interesting-- nothing I couldn't make in my kitchen in a few minutes. And later we got a pastry at the front and the guy gave us the wrong one... I guess that's neither here nor there, but, whatever, I'm not going back.

We didn't wait to get in on a Sunday afternoon. When we were seated and had to make our selection the waitress wouldn't stop to take our order, and then got the order wrong. For a $20 sandwich you should get a smile and a thank you, but we got none of those.
