Went there for lunch as a group of six yesterday. It's a rather large box of a store crammed with tables and chairs. We got seated quickly and our waitress was WONDERFUL. That was a pleasant surprise. The food was just okay. You have to expect to pay "too much" for New York deli, it's just a fact of life around here. There was plenty to eat and all of the plates came out at the same time, which was nice because the restaurant was packed. I got the corned beef and it was fine. Next time I want deli I think I'll try the Carnegie Deli just a block away. One perk, if you truly want to try Stage, is if you go to their website you can download a 10% off coupon. They gladly accepted it.

Never been here and decided to stop in for a sandwich. Got a ham and cheese sandwich on a hero and a can of soda. It cost $20 dollars. The hero roll was small and there was not a lot of deli meat. It was a total total rip off. Worst of all, they put lettuce and tomato and toppings on which I had asked them not to include. When I noticed this and pointed it out, the guy just tried to wipe them off instead of re-making the sandwich. My sandwich still had the remnants of tomato and lettuce. Sandwich tasted below average. I will never go back. STAY AWAY

I had a pastrami sandwich which was wonderful. Our waitress was very unfriendly until she gave us the check then she talked our ears off. It is way overpriced, but I love the food and will go back again.

This place is the ultimate NYC deli! It is older than Carnagie and better! Sure it's expensive - welcome to NYC! But the portions are HUGE and the quality is fabulous. If you only visit one NYC deli, it should be this one. Be sure to order fries and onion rings - they are some of the best. The waitresses might be surley, but the are certainly efficient.

We read about this tourist trap, well in our travel guide. But we thought : What the heck. And so we learned at least one thing. Never think: What the heck again! It was the worst of the worst. Eat on the street some bread and meat from the supermarket. The experience will be better.

Hello, Yesterday evening I visited Stage Deli as a first time customer and was completely disappointed in the quality of my sandwich, service, and atmosphere . If I could give examples of what the NYC tourist trap restaurants would be this would be on the top of my list. The only positive thing I can say about this stop is its cool to see authentic celebrity pictures on the wall.
