Our soup and sandwiches were delicious, and service from Katelyn was friendly and attentive. The new york reuben was perfect, with tons of corned beef, coleslaw, and hot mustard, and coffee and water were refilled quickly, and as often as needed. We'll be back again!

Great place in the basement of 111 Lombard. Favourite is Club House Wrap with coleslaw and a pickle. $12.42 with tax.

With an office in the area, this restaurant tends to be a default for our business meetings and catering for our small office lunch meetings. I've tried a few different sandwiches and soups over the past year or so and am actively steering meetings away from here now. The sandwiches are quite basic and the soups are uninspired! And everything... More

This speakeasy like deli with its hidden steep stairs access and peep hole in the door is worth the trip to Winnipeg. The Deli keeps Winnipeg hours so you must go early and/or for lunch (7 AM to 3 PM ish). I could not make up my mind so I had the breakfast bagel and the Deli style (as opposed... More

I love Ira's Deli. It gives the impression of a New York Deli, as you head down the concrete staircase on the outside of a building. Opening the for revels a large, attractive area where you ill enjoy the atmosphere and some of the best deli food in town.

This is truly a hidden gem. You have to go down some steep stairs to this basement deli, and parking around there can be tough to find. However, it is totally worth it!!!!!! It is cozy and super friendly. The staff will chat with you and everyone who goes there is like part of a cool club that knows about... More

This really is the best deli in Winnipeg. The food is excellent, and I love the cool, urban deli underground atmosphere. I always get either a Reuben or a corned beef on rye with hot mustard. And of course, no Jewish deli experience is complete with matzo ball soup, which Ira's does very well. My main complaint though, is that... More

Everything is outstanding. Homemade and a clear sense of pride in what they do. Probably the best restaurant of its kind in Winnipeg.

I had no idea that Ira's was talked away in the basement of "The Brick" building on Lombard Street - but having been there I have no hesitation in saying that I wished I had known about this before now! The Perogies are superb and the sandwiches to die for! "regular" sandwiches are 1/4 pounders and the New York sandwiches... More
