Always wonderful. Excellent service, high-quality food, low volume pleasant music. quality décor. This visit, on of many, included matzo ball chicken soup for me and a pastrami on pumpernickel sandwich for my wife. Both excellent, as usual.

I enjoyed a lovely Mother's Day treat with my children and grandchildren. Our party of 9 had an 11:30 AM reservation and we were seated upon arrival. Our waitress was a delight;friendly and efficient. Our orders were taken and served promptly even though the restaurant had not one empty table. My 3 large potato pancakes with smoked salmon were delicious... More

I like the food here and they have a good menu with lots to choose from, but the service is never great - sorry just being honest! Never had a great experience with the waitstaff. LOVE the bagels and cream cheese they give you - nice touch! It's convenient and I usually like the food so I'll go back.

A friend and I came here for Sunday morning brunch, and were pleased to see a fairly decent breakfast menu it is served all day. We both had omelettes which were very good. There is also a complete menu of sandwiches and other hot dishes, so I can't speak for what lunch or dinner would be like, but for breakfast... More

Food and staff are great! Very conveniently located, so they can get busy, but so much better than the usual breakfast fare near the mall area.

Food and service are terrific. Great selection for every appetite, family friendly and basket of books for children to read at their table.

Two weeks ago I went in and ordered a corned beef sandwich with mustard on Cissel bread to go. Noting unusual for this type of restaurant. When I got home and tried to bite into the sandwich, it was the toughest corn beef I had ever tasted.

Best New york style deli around. Casual fare and decent pricing. Fantastic sandwich selection. Bonus that they serve alcohol.

Zaftigs give everything you want from a traditional deli breakfast spot. Great picked tomatoes and have dill pickles. I got the poached eggs with ham on cheddar bread. Really hit the spot after a night out. Finished it off with a potent Bloody Mary to start the day off right. A must visit.

If you are going to go here, stick to the ethnically Jewish food. I had a burrito for breakfast (it was ok) then we went back for dinner and I had the brisket bolognese (it was not good). My husband and son were smarter with their picks and theirs was a little better. The best stuff was the extra potato... More
