Great food, saying the food is delicious it's an understatement. The portion is on the large side, sharing might be a good idea.

I had read previous reviews and was prepared we may have to wait for a table, which was helpful. We had to wait about an hour on Sunday at 2:00, but the food was worth the wait. They give large portions and the food is...More

Talk about an anomaly! This spin on southern food was a pleasant surprise on the Upper East Side. The fact that they make pickles kind of a food group is actually pretty cool. I went on a mid-week day about 11:30 AM or so and...More

Hello Elie, we've arrived at around 17:00 and we've found a table for two quite fast although it seemed packed. I'm guessing that a table for 2 can quickly transform into a table for 3 :) so I wouldn't worry about it.

Since the launch of Jacobs Pickles on the Upper West Side of NY in late 2011, the Pickles team has been committed to sharing their love for food and community. “Everything we do is about bringing good food to good people”, says Jacob. “I couldn’t find this style of food in New York—a sort of back to basics kind of cooking. My father raised me in a neighborhood restaurant in Astoria, Queens. “It’s all about warmth and community for us, always has been.” Since the beginning, we’re proud to have shared our love for home-cooked food, artisanal beer, hand made cocktails, and of course, pickles.
