My husband and I had lunch and decided to split the corned beef sandwich and also share the blinzes. Also love the matzo ball soup

Food was great! Server was fast and courteous. Only issue was the manager pressuring every customer (loudly) about a contest to sell Arnold Palmer iced teas. We listened to "the pitch" repeatedly throughout our meal. Dampened an otherwise excellent experience. We will be back, however.More

It seems as though a great deli has slipped. Summertime should not be a time for the restaurant to get careless. Our meal was far from perfect. My strawberry chicken salad was soggy. The chicken amounted to 3 small fingernail sized pieces. It was not...More
