We have been coming into Sarge's for years, the food is absolutely the best. But thier service "overnights" lacks quality. The one good waitress they had just disappear. I heard so many different versions of what happened to her it makes no sense, she absolutely loved it there. Oh where Oh where can she be, Sarges' really needs to find, Costas. This new guy, doesn't have a voice, I think I'm going deaf when he talks, I get frustrated just to order. He belongs in one of those steak house where you have 2 hours to eat. Come on Sarges' get it together.

Absolutely awesome Jewish deli. They have by far the best corned beef hash, and the sandwiches (particularly grilled salami) and latkes are excellent. Only Katz's has better latkes in Manhattan, but it's such a production there that it makes it almost not even worth it. Sarge's kreplach are great too. As for the prices, don't be fooled. Yes, $12 - $14 is a lot of money for a sandwich. But it's got well over 1/2 lb of quality, delicious meat on it, served hot and just sliced. If you think that's a bad deal feel free to go to Pret and spend $7 on a pre-made sandwich that has 1.5 ounces of tasteless meat. Then tell me which is the better deal.......

Sarge's is great because they are open 24 hours and deliver all over the city. If you have the flu, there is great chicken soup right at your door regardless of the time of night and great sandwiches after those late nights drinking. I found out that the delivery guy who can travel up to 30 minutes each way at night to deliver makes $5 after you take out the taxes from his paycheck so please take that into consideration when tipping...that comes to $800 a month after taxes if he works a 40 hour week...

A pastrami sandwich and fries will be served as a pretty large amount of food, but at north of 20 bucks without a drink, it's not exactly the kind of place you'd eat at every day. The food is really good except for one memorable time when I got a corned beef sandwich that was, in my estimation, 75 percent inedible fat. However, that was only one time in my approximately 8 years of going to Sarge's. The staff is really friendly and the atmosphere is definitely a throwback. The only negative I can think of are the prices, but then when you compare them to other Jewish delis, it actually seems slightly cheaper by comparison.

Soul food. The kind that warms the heart as it fills the belly. So hard to find these days with sterile chain restaurants owned by celebrity chefs opening up on every corner. Sarge's is an authentic throwback. Chatted with the manager recently (great grandson of "Sarge") and learned its been in the same location and owned by same family since 1960 something. Classic New overstuffed York deli sandwhiches were as good as it gets (corned beef and pastrami were perfectly moutwatering) and the "jewish" food was spot on. Haven't tried the entire menu yet, but chopped liver, matzo ball and kreplach soup, brisket and gravey over a gigantic potato pancake, and chicken in a pot brought a tear to my eye. Sunday brunch is plain awesome. I didn't think you cold find great smoked fish on a bagel (hand sliced, not from a package) and a LEO omelette with the onions cooked to perfection anymore. The decor is just as it should be (a little rough around the edges, but in a good way) and the wait staff was attentive and knowledgable abut the food (not easy to find in a Jewish deli). Far from "fine dining" and that's alright by me. Great food, very good service and a heck of a value for what you get. I know where I will be calling for Hanukah, passover, breakfast, etc.

Sarge's Deli has one of the best cheesecakes in New York City! Thats a lot coming from me, who was raised on her Nana's cheesecake and would have been a traitor to even consider eating Cheesecake Factory. But I have to say- the slices at Sarge's are pretty darn good! Very soft and moist, not to hard and crumbly, but not too soft that it falls apart with the blowing of the wind. Absolutely worth the price- and great with the strawberry topping!
