My wife and I went to NYC in March and found the Roxy Deli as the Best food while we were there. Yes prices seemed high at first, but when you consider the sandwiches are large enough to share (and took leftovers back to the hotel) anyhow this is New York and you should expect to pay a little more. While in Manhattan you should check it out.

Never again would I take my family to Roxy's deli in NYC. I am a Native NYorker and would never return. The sandwiches were dry, the meat tasted old, and I was floored that they wanted to charge me an extra $3 for my 9 year old and 2 year old to share a meal!

I was just reading thru some of these reviews and I get really mad. First of all, I live in NYC, so these tourists that come here I guess have no clue about anything. Stop complaining about prices and being so cheap. This is New York, not Alabama or something. I go to Roxy all the time and ever time I go I get great service and even better food. I guess you can't go by what other people think. This is a deli people, not a 5 star restaurant. For all these cheap people let me tell you a quick story. I went to one of the top place in NYc for dinner, two people and it was $458.00, tip not included. The dinner was so-so and the service at the deli is better than here. But I wasn't cheap or complained about it. I paid and left 20% tip, even though the service wasn't great. It is called respect. Just if you come to NYC be prepared to spend money and dont be so cheap.

My boyfriend read about the delicatessen and decided we should go eat lunch there. We both ordered open faced cheese sandwiches with fries. The fries were good, but both of our sandwich bread was a little burned. Overall the food was good but the prices were crazy. While we were there a bunch of people came in, sat down, looked at the menu and left. I am sure it was in regards to the obsene prices for a deli sandwich!

You arrive 5 minutes after 11 AM and prices soar - 3 eggs jump to $18.95 and toast is $8.00 but we tried to laugh about it. Noticed at least 5 other parties come in , look at the menu and leave - way over priced for breakfast fare. The waiter was very solicitous but when I didn't leave him the tip he thought he deserved(and I figured at those prices the tip was pretty much built in) he rolled his eyes and then proceed to share his "misfortune" with a fellow waiter and they both made me feel like I'd done something indecent - I almost called him back as if to "correct" my mistake and then just cross off what tip I did leave and let him deal with that. Needless to say we will not be returning to that Deli our next time in NY - others we patronized were just as nice and reasonably priced.

I made it a point to go here after a broadway show and dinner locally, to finish off the night with a piece of the best cheesecake in NY. We arrived around 12:10 am (they are open until 3) the greeter downstairs told us to go upstairs to eat. We went upstairs, waited, waited, waited and waited, just as we were about to leave, someone came by. They sat us down in a tiny corner behind 2 other people (and there was plenty of room upstairs), about a minute later, another waiter came by and told us to move across the isle, so we moved. About another minute later another waiter came by and moved us to a booth right across from where we were. My friend and I were in total dis-belief of and clueless about our moves. Finally, a friendly waitress came by took our order -for cheesecake and coffee. About 20 minutes later, came back with it. After we finished, (in about 20 minutes) we waited and waited and waited for our waitress, then we saw her talking to some friends, and talking and talking. We finally got the check and left. By then it was around 1:30 am. I could not believe how long it took to sit,order and pay for a piece of cheesecake and coffee. The cheesecake is to die for, the rest of the place I could live without!
