Both the bartender and our waitress had to be verbally stopped and asked for certain things that should be done automatically. We sat at the bar waiting for a table and the bartender never even made eye contact - I had to shout to get his attention. Then our waitress had to be constantly reminded of everything. I asked for a cocktail menu literally 3 times. I doubt I'll return.

Had lunch there on a weekday. So crowded. Loud. and the heat was on too high. The food was only OK. The menu looks amazing but when it comes down to it, the food is only ok. Portion sizes are weird. The lobster roll was this tiny finger length meal. And then the reuben sandwich was this humungous plate. The burrito was HUUUGE. but the scrambled eggs were a dollop on my plate. Would not recommend this place.

I stopped by Delicatessen as an escape from the snow. The idea was to have some wine and appetizers. It was around six pm and the restaraunt was dead empty. we were greeted by a very rude host who rolled his eyes at us when we said we did not have a reservation. we ordered a bottle of wine and some appetizers. After about 20 min into getting our food the waiter basically snatched our plates out from under us and didn't even ask if we were done. we had a full glass left in our bottle of wine as he grabbed it from the table. when we told him that there was still wine in there he said "oh my bad i couldn't see it" the idiot couldn't even tell by the weight of the bottle that there was still wine in there. We felt like we were being rushed out by a very rude staff. It would have been one thing if the place was crowded or if we had been sitting there for a long time. but it was empty and we had only been there for only 30 min

we just went today for a drink and something to eat. first we were greeted in a rude way, asked if we had reservations when the rest was PRACTICALLY EMPTY. then they were rushing us for our order. once the food came, we ate but we werent even finished before they cleared our table and they were taking away our bottle of wine when it was clearly not empty nor we had given any sign of been done. to make matters worse as some friends came to join us later, we moved a table next to us and they told us that we couldnt do that. it is understanble if they had a full house but it was empty... then the manager or maitre di was extremelly rude we practically felt kicked out - overall was an awfull experience and we were really dissapointed by the service

I'm suprised about the negative comments here. We stepped in by chance for lunch and were welcomed very friendly by extremely attentive staff. I had "Delicatessen Benedict" which was just delicious as well as the Ovaltine Pudding. We loved the food and the relaxed and stylish atmosphere so much, that we highly recommended it to our NY friends.

I am surprised at all the bad ratings people have been giving this place. Yes, it is trendy and maybe too hip and modern for real foodies to take this place seriously, but I find the offerings to be delicious and price to be reasonable. I have to admit I was attracted to have a walk in to this place by the fancy look but also intimiated by it at the same time. There is no shortage of young attactive people dinning at this location. Appetizers I would say are the highlight of the menu. Very creative and not disappoiniting in taste either. We've tried the cheese burger spring roll, tuna tartar, and parnip soup, all excellent. For main we have their specialty eggs benedict and lobster roll. The lobster was a bit more petite than other establishments and the potatoes that came with the benedict was over spiced. But it was overall good. The proportion is not bigger or smaller then your average restaurant unless you are use to olive garden and red lobsters sizes. I have not tried the real entrees of the restaurant but it has certainly been underrated by most here and worth a try.
