Food was tasty but too expensive for what it was. The waiting staff were friendly and very generous, we got two free broths and a slice of cheesecake on the house.

Have had their pastrami sandwich on each of the last 2 trips, it was juicy and tender. Even though I had only been in once (7 months earlier) the waiter with the earring remembered me, he even pointed to the booth I'd sat in on...More

Reuben served without Russian dressing and very little sauerkraut cost $22 for an average (at best) sandwich. At least Carnegie deli back in the day gave you a sandwich that looked like a little skyscraper. The cheesecake here is not as good as Junior's.

We ate at Lindy's for breakfast on our first morning in New York. We hadn't really researched anywhere therefore just jumped in the first decent looking place we found. As it was on 5th avenue it was vastly overpriced which was a learning experience for...More

The cheesecake is good here, not as good as Juniors, but still, good. The service is very friendly and welcoming. They never charge fully for their drinks and service is prompt.

An average place. Like all NYC spots pricey for what you get. The triple decker sandwich was smaller compared to other delis and priced differently. The cheesecake was very good. Service was fair, kitchen hustling and busboys moving all over. Again it was just average.

I ordered the carrot cake thinking it was a cheese cake flavored carrot cake. It was not. It really was not the best carrot cake and very over priced for a diner cake. Little on the stale side.

First, the cheesecake was excellent. The only reason we know that is because the kitchen messed up our order so the waitress have it to us on the house. The kids items were ok, but were priced as they were adult portions. The Ruben was...More

My friend wanted to go here for cheesecake based on someone's recommendations. The reviews online were low. Likely for good reason. We didn't end up eating here because my friend saw someone grab a quiche to serve with his hands. Can't speak to the food...More
