    Good selection of coffee and cheese. More expensive than Trader Joe's down the street but more of a selection of brand names and more variety of products if this is important.

    Bankruptcy hasn't slowed them down, and they've even widened some of the aisles.

    This is the best Fairway in the city as far as selection goes. The layout is a little crazy and it can be difficult to maneuver the aisles, but it's worth the trouble.

    The lines are really disorganized. If you are strategic, you can look around and barely wait.

    Love the granola options on the second floor. Cheaper than whole foods. They also carry sesame sticks and corn kernels in bulk bins. Good variety of international fruits. Cheap soups.

    The butchers here are amazing! If you can't find something on the shelves, they will find some more in the back or cut it fresh for you.

    I drizzle Silver Spring wasabi sauce (at fish counter) on my chilled crab cake (also at the fish counter) for a quick snack. It's an amazing combination!

    Try pairing the grilled salmon (chilled at deli counter) with stuffed grape leaves (at the self serve cold salad bar).

    It's usually super crowded and difficult to maneuver around crowds of people to find what you need.

    Complete unorganized with no leadership from the "supervisors". I'll be sticking to Trader Joe's.

    Fairway Harlem is way better than this location. Be warned, the only way you can sit in the cafe is if you get table service. The counter person fails to inform customers this.

    Plan your grocery list before you go or you will be run over. Also, beware old ladies or else you'll run one over. Pause halfway through at the olive bar to compose yourself. Then continue.

    Forced to sit on uncomfortable bar chairs at a tiny bar table with plants basically in my face. Crammed near Customer Service. WAY too tight! Need more space! AC also turned up way too high.

    I love Fairway, but the cafe upstairs is not so great at this location if you want to bring something from downstairs bought at the market to eat there.

    Why should one buy berries here when they are left outside all day? Might as well buy from the nearby fruit cart at about half the price. If they want us to pay a premium price refrigerate them.

    The deals on meat/poultry and fresh produce make this grocery destination worth it! Great place to stock up on chicken breasts. Later in the evening is the best time to go!

    If it's crowded, head to the deli counter first to get a number ticket and then grab some of the other items on your list while you wait to be called. That line gets crazy long!
