We went to the Stage Deli for dinner. Three of us. I had the Tiger Woods Ruben combo; pastrami, corned beef and swiss for $22.00 My buddies had the # 13 which was a high stacked sandwich featuring pastrami, corned beef & beef brisket $19.00. We all agreed that the portions were huge. However, the corned beef and beef brisket were dry. The pastrami was lean and good, the best thing we had.The onion rings were $9.00( they were very good). At the end we felt that it was too pricey. The atmosphere in this deli was not that good; you are not paying for the ambiance. Go there; but for most you will only go once to say that you went. The server was excellent.

My wife and I had been told by many people to visit the Stage Deli, it's better than Katz or Carniegie we were told, so on our third visit to the Big Apple we gave in and wish we had eaten there each day. I had the Rudy and it was wonderful, the best sandwiche I have ever had, I mean ever! The Cheesecake do not even get me started on, we went back to Stage for take out every evening for cheesecake to take back to our hotel. If we could import this back home to England I would like a shot, Stage deli is the works, DO NOT MISS OUT!

I should have known just by the neighborhood... but I was so hungry and midtown is usually so good with diners. I guess I'll go back to 9th ave next time. Anyway... Tuna Melt + Fries, & a Beer: $36.00. The tuna melt was big, and had bacon (a plus) but certainly not THAT much a plus! Service was fine, and the staff is not lacking character at all. However, that being said... let's leave this diner for the tourists.

My dad and I ate there before a play because he said it was a very famous deli. I almost passed out when I saw that the sandwiches were about $15! I thought it had better be the best sandwich of my life, and it was pretty regular. Also, the tables are so close together you feel like you're dining with everyone in the restaurant which is not a good thing, and it's hard to maneuver anywhere in the restaurant (including the tiny bathroom). They move people in and out as quickly as possible because there's such a long wait, so at least they do their best in that regard. However, and this could just be me not used to New Yorkers, but the waiters and waitresses were very abrupt and kind of unfriendly. They also brought us the wrong pickles when we asked for more (not a huge deal, but still), and the guy next to us tried to get half a sandwich with one meat and the other half with another but they brought him both halves with both meats (and I had to watch him pull apart his corned beef and TONGUE double-decker which did not make my experience more pleasant). It wasn't horrible at all - it was fine - but I would have much rather either eaten real food for that price or the most outstanding sandwich ever, but instead I got something I could make myself for 1/3 of the price. Still, I guess you could go there once just to say you did...it is "famous" afterall.

Get a taste of your favorite star at Stage. There menu is based on famous actors/actresses. We had the Sarah Jessica Parker. Wow it was huge and you should share the plate. Half a sandwich will fill you up. We went here two times. The first time was a great experience. The second was not as good due to the server - she would rather sit down than do her job, Obviously we loved the food so much we went twice. Stage was also recomended by the bus tour. It is really a great find - if you don't mind a little lax on the service.

Prices here are about double you expect to pay. Although they give you decent portions, there is typically very little flavor to the food. Even with turkey wraps ordered with mayonaisse, my order was delivered to me tightly wrapped with what it was supposed to come with, but with the mayo on the side; i.e. essentially a very dry turkey & bacon wrap unless you undo the wrap and make a big mess of it yourself.

I admit, my corned beef on rye was enormous but it didn't rock my world sadly. The love of my life decided to take me here on a whim. I have heard and read about this place forever but never went. Either way its was ok.The waiter thought we were tourists because we took pics of our huge sandwiches :) She wound up only eating half of hers and odered tea and some kind of tart. This was an ok experience, though I plan on going back...not too shabby.The bill came out to 52$! For 2 people, we had a sandwich apiece , one beer, one tart, one tea and a can of Dr Browns. Not the best deal in town, but a nice experience, every New yorker should come here once.
