My friend and I met up for drinks and appetizers at Delicatessen and we had a fabulous time. Kind of reminds me of Cafeteria, but MUCH better. We sat in one of the lower lounges, had great cocktails, and fabulous cheeseburger spring rolls. The ambiance and service were top notch.

Had dinner here the other night with three other friends. We had a great meal. The cheeseburger spring rolls are excellent and the reuben fritters and halibut tacos were equally delicious. Between the four of us we had the pork chop, salmon, chicken in a bucket (fried chicken), and the short rib strog. All of our entrees looked great on the plate, were served in a creative way and tasted great- especially the chicken in a bucket and the pork. Our server was helpful, friendly, and not overbearing.

The design of the place is pretty hot but so, unfortunately, is the temperature inside. Due to their not-so-smart idea of an open wall to the sidewalk and no fans inside you are basically cooking in your seat sandwiched between the hot kitchen and the hot smelly noisy sidewalk. Should have been thought out before they opened. The food is mediocre which I think is surprising because Cafeteria is generally pretty good. The meatloaf, the salmon, the chicken - all basic and uninspired. You won't remember them the next day and you won't come back for them either. Service was annoying. The waiter completely hovered around my table the night I was there and I felt like I should offer him a chair to join us rather than have him stand next to me while I was trying to eat. Drinks were fine, the wine list looked ok but at 90+ degrees I wasn't cracking open a bottle. Overall I was disappointed. Maybe they are still working out the kinks since they just opened but then they shouldn't have charged me to be their guinea pig...

went with no reservation - dinner for 2. The mildly attractive hostess said it would be about 40minutes... no big deal. We had a few drinks... ordered some appetizers... so far so good... psyched to have a new spot in the hood. After about half an hour we were up next and she said it would be another 10minutes or so. An hour after that... still nothing. Finally just settled up and walked out after waiting 1hr45mins. Spent $100 on the apps and drinks... tipped $30... walked out hungry. A bit dissapointing

I live around the corner and was so excited when you opened. The thought of a badly needed new restaurant had me eager with anticipation. Nevertheless i was crestfallen when i ate the food. The halibut tacos are bland and the fried taco shell reminded me of the crust from a fast food apple pie. But im not here to criticize. Im just asking that you please revamp the menu or get a new chef so the food actually tastes good. Thank you and good luck

I had drinks / dinner Thursday evening at the new Delicatessen @ 54 Prince Street. I have to say, it was delightful. What a night! The interior design was something special. Finally a fresh, well lit architecturaly unique space with something powerful to say. These guys are not timid when it comes to design. Each space offers a great surprise as you wander down to the lower level. Materials are great. Service could be a little more organized..............but who cares when 6FT tall supermodels are swarming every square inch of this gem. You want an interesting night, definately reccommend checking this hot spot out.

Style over substance. You get sick of it in this city. Restaurants that appear fabulous in its menu, atmosphere, service. Unfortunately, often all three break down. The menu was interesting but the food was not great. The Eames chairs looked good but I don't think they were meant for a dining room. I felt like it was pulling me backwards away from the table. The worst part about it was the temperature. I was drenched. When we mentioned it, they said the AC was turned up and there was nothing more they can do about it. Furthermore, our server asked us to empathize with her since she was the one working and wearing thick jeans. As far as service goes, they kept asking to take away our plates of appetizers even though we weren't finished yet. We thought it was because our main courses were waiting so we allowed them to take the plates away. Then, we waited about 15 minutes for our mains to arrive. They kept pushing the bottled water on us (three different people asked in the span of 10 minutes). We ordered the cheeseburger spring rolls (good) and the Mixto Fritto (pretty standard but bad presentation). The accompanying sauce, some spinach thing tasted like ground up leaves with a dash of soil. Very earthy in a bad way. I had the mussels (I've had better). A little disorganized or amateur or a little of both.
