    The pastrami at 2nd Ave Deli was great. It was piled high with tender and tasty pastrami. The pastrami was thinly sliced, not very fatty, and super juicy. The rye was fresh and soft. The sandwich was served with deli mustard and pickles. Service was good and fast. This place did not disappoint.

    This was our families first experience of Jewish food. We had a selection of dishes and they were all very tasty. We would definitely visit again.

    My only qualm with this restaurant is the price for a sandwich. Granted, every traditional deli in Manhattan charges approximately twenty dollars for pastrami on rye. Nonetheless, it feels like a lot, even after you consider the amount of food you receive. Anyway, I loved this place. The service was great, the restaurant was very clean, every piece of food was great, and the general 'atmosphere' of the restaurant was wonderful.

    Super friendly staff. Our waitress was particularly awesome with her sense of humor and incredible hospitality. Food wasn't bad, and normal pricing for Murray Hill which can be on the pricier side. Still worth it in my opinion.

    Hot brisket sandwich was pricey, but pretty good. Host was charming, the server not so much. Matzo ball soup was good. Liked how broth was poured over the very hot matzo ball at the table. Plenty of carrot slices. The complimentary shot of foamy chocolate drink after the meal was a nice touch to finish with sweetness.

    Great NYC Deli! My "go to" for corn beef and brisket sandwiches, potato knishes and so much more. Come and taste for yourself.

    A real taste of old New York. Great service from the staff and really good food. Had the matzo ball soup and half pastrami sandwich and my boyfriend had the brisket sandwich. Loved the cozy diner feel and old celeb patron photos on the wall.

    One of my required stops into the city... Best pastrami and corned beef around, and I love the staff. They're pricey, but it's competent worth the splurge because the food is phenomenal.

    Exactly what I expected. Had the pastrami sandwich. The pastrami was smokey and peppery and juicy, with just the right amount of fat. The rye bread was soft with a thin crust, just the way I like it. Sandwich came with two large dill pickles and a bowl of cabbage slaw. Oddly, the slaw had sliced green peppers in it. Not my thing, but not bad. The sandwich, with a ginger ale, tax and tip, was $31 so you're not coming here for the value. But, life is short. Live a little!

    Best kosher deli in NYC. No contest. Definitely come here and bring your appetite. It’s heavy and it is totally worth it. Want Pastrami? Want knish? Want Chile this? Chopped liver? Matzo ball soup? Name it. They have it. Family owned for decades and world reknown. This is it. And yes it is kosher. If you are lucky Jack will be there and you can talk to him about the history of the Deli.
