The food was awful and not prepared properly. Service was poor at best and we had to talk very loudly to hear each other across the table.

Good atmosphere, terrible food. I had the pastrami sandwich which was almost inedible - so fatty that I had to take a knife to it. By the end my plate looks like the operating table out of an episode of Doctor 90210 and some dodgy lipo op . My girlfriend had the watercrest/arugula salad with Goats cheese. Sadly it was no better. We sent that back and judging by the grumbling in my stomach later on I wish I had done the same. No return visit required especially when there are so many other great restaurants right there in the neighborhood.

I've been to Delicatessen a couple times and I have to say, I have never been disappointed with the food. The Rueben Fritters are out of this world, and the halibut tacos and fish and chips are fantastic as well. Unfortunately, the service is hard to stomach. Besides servers who take 10 minutes to great the tables and another 20 to get our drinks, the kitchen itself takes a very long time to prepare the food. I went to try the brunch the other day (which I know is knew to Delicatessen so maybe there are still some kinks to iron out), but with at least 10 available tables, we were told it was a half an hour wait because the kitchen was backed up. It's not enough to turn me off to eating at Delicatessen at all yet (I'm serious, the Rueben Fritters will probably always draw me back), but there's only so long I can continue to wait an hour for my food and drinks to arrive before I get sick of it. I really hope they can get their act together though, because I think it's a really great, tasty addition to the neighborhood.

so much attitude when trying to make the reservation. Then upon arrival, more attitude because we were 8 minutes early! totally empty so do not know why our earliness was a problem for them. Service slow and unattentive. Food was uninspired and not good. Music loud. Owners should keep a more watchful eye on this establishment.

I am a foodie, but not a food snob. My friends make fun of me that I love everywhere I eat. For the first time in my life, I have nothing good to say about the food at a restaurant. That restaurant would be Delicatessen. I had the most subpar burger of my life. It was not even 4oz and it was overcooked and burnt. After sending it back (which when I told the waitress it was burnt, her reply was "I'm not surprised" doesn't that say something??) my replacement was the second worst burger I've ever had. It wasn't even seasoned! I then ordered the matzoh ball soup, which was also not good. And my thoughts on the chicken salad - do you want some chicken with your mayo?? That being said, the atmosphere was great and our waitress was wonderful. The management did send out free apps, which was very appreciated. I am a huge fan of Cafeteria, so I am so surprised that Delicatessen could be so poor.

The Delicatessen Restaurant at 54 Prince Street & Lafayette Street ,is a tacky, fly by joint that is an instant hit with the tunnel traffic. The food is slow to come and a disappointment when it arrives. Even the drinks are diluted.

My and friend and I went to have a great Sunday lunch/brunch here only to discover it was nothing but a HUGE disappointment. The halibut carpaccio was beyond off...completely old smelly fishy tasting. The salad was all soggy with about 1/2 a slice of tuna, so much for nicoise salad. The fish and chips were just gross and greasy. The presentation of the food is really quite nice, but the food itself is horrible. They REALLY need a new chef. Taste and waste your $ at your own risk...
