No more big sandwiches. Good pastrami but Disney atmosphere - tourists and high prices.

I've been here I would say four or five times in the past 10 years. The portions of pastrami this last time were the smallest I can recall and for $15.00! This was even after tipping the carver. Sadly, I doubt I will go back.

I take offense when I see & read how overated Katz Deli is....in my mind it has the BEST food, service and history, one could ever ask for.....like most New Yorkers we speak the truth !

I have grown up on deli - GOOD deli. If you are looking for a solid deli experience, don't waste your time here. The food was not good (what in the world did they put in the russian dressing)?, matzah ball was loaded with pepper and the chicken broth was brown and tasted like soy sauce.

After hearing stories as obscene as people knocking over old ladies in walkers just for a quick taste of Katz's, lugging $1000's of dollars worth of the stuff to Greenwich simply to share to magic and long winded speeches about this deli's place in NYC culinary history, I can safely say, do not believe any of the hype. At first I was tantilized by the propsect, a pastrami sandwich that has withstood the test of time, could it be? History has shown time and time again than people have killed for less, if the rumours were true, this very well could be a greater discovery than the Nasca lines. But alas, upon forking up $20 (or whatever the absurd price is), my mouth watering in anticipation, my first bite was met with the bitter pang of disappointment . My tastebuds immediately went flaccid as they discoverd the taste of an entirely ordinary pastrami sandwich. Call it sacriligious, call it blasphemy, but seriously, I don't care what people say about the hand cut meat, there is no holy grail or sandwichs forged after centuries of NYC restauranteur competition. It's a $20 and served at room temperature. Just go to Fette Sau or something, you'll be happier.

While I have had great Pastrami in the past from Katz's lately it has been subpar at best and I have had less good experiences and more poor experiences. Most of the cutters are too young and have not mastered the art of making a sandwhich nor do they seem to care to. Meat is cut way too thick. Pastrami sandwiches keep going up in price yet amount of meat keeps decreasing. Lastly the place is filthy. I would not recommend to anyone to sit down and eat at Katz's purely a takeout place only. In conclusion while you can still get a great Pastrami Sandwhich on occasion at Katz's it is hit and miss at best and lately there have been way too many misses. They are living off their name alone and have abadoned all quality control
