Lansky's Old World Deli

The egg salad is amazing, as is the matzoh ball soup! $8.95 for a large bowl of soup and 1/2 overstuffed sandwich of this quality are hard to find on the UWS (unless you dine at McDonald's, barf!). Service can be slow at times and the tables are a little small, but other than that it's great!

We order in from this restaurant almost every Sunday night! Nancy is so great to work with. She ALWAYS gets it right. The food is great and the roast chicken dinner is the best value- $12.95 with one side. I highly recommend the chicken soup as well. If you are looking for neighborhood restaurant that is not gourmet but more like Momma is in the kitchen, this is the place.

I went to Lansky's one night and had the Ruben. The Ruben, pickles and cole slaw were the best I ever had. (Also, the franks n' blankets were great). I liked it so much, I brought friends back a few days later. The Ruben was still great but every thing else we order was no good. The deep fried hot dog - tastless. The chopped liver was spoiled and the chili was so bad that I didn't even bother sending it back knowing that a restaurant that sells chili like that would have no idea how to make good chili. Great first impression but I don't know if I'll ever go back.

New waitress had no clue about the menu and got it all wrong. Just watching her struggle was painful. Please, train your new waitresses before sending them to customers - makes for a subpar meal. Food was ok.

I had lunch there with a friend on 6/5/09. Table was too small to hold the dishes. Soup and 1/2 a sandwich had to be served together or they would add 1.50 dollar charge. Pastrami very dry and fries are so -so.Plates were taken before I finished eating.

I really wanted to like Lansky's, as it's in a location where good diner/deli food is hard to find. Went there for dinner and for breakfast and got a bad stomach ache 2 out of 3 times. The pastrami must have been old and reheated, and in a rare feat: They messed up toast!! toast=stale bread served at room temp. The prices might be low but you need to factor in the cost of that bottle of Mylanta that you'll need. The servers were very nice, but the place didn't seem very clean.

Awful experience. We were seated in the very back, in a completely empty room, despite available seats up front (party of 2). Waitstaff was hovering -- kept espying our table, but were slow at refilling water and coffee. The food was awful. Mushy hash, home fries were underdone, cold and taste free and drinks were pretty bad, too. The complimentary muffins announced on the menu never arrived at our table or anyone else's that I saw.
