    This is quite possibly the best brunch spot in NYC! Try the Pastrami Russ or the Cinnamon Babka French Toast.

    The classic platter with an everything bagel is perfect. They give you just the right amount of everything and the salmon is perfect. The dill Bloody Mary was the perfect way to round it out.

    Always packed, Russ & Daughters managed to create a cafe that appeals to hipsters and elderly Jewish folk alike. It's hard to get a seat without a reservation but go on an off hour to snag a bar seat.

    took my parents here while they were in town. the exterior of the store is modest, but the cafe's classic platter really won my mom over & dad said the spinach in his eggs benny worked like "magic" ✨

    Great brunch place with a focus on fish and caviar. For a classical taste order bagel with lox, and for more adventurous spirits go for Super Heebster. Also herring on bread is great with vodka

    The shtetl was a nice change from smoked salmon. And the knishes were fluffy and delicious.

    If you are looking for something sweet, the chocolate french toast is GOAT!

    If your Jewish yourll love this - my friend was so happy

    Salmon is amazing, especially the kippered. Bagels were good, but still absolut bagels is the winner. The decor is fabulous.

    Not worth the wait or price

    You're in New York, so you can get a good bagel or typical brunch any day. Don't mess around. Get as much lox as you can. Get as much herring as you can. Order vodka shots. Go hard or go home

    Get the $70 platter! It says it's for 3-4 people but it'll easily serve 6-8 people if you also get appetizers. Try them all. Fresh butter & creme fraiche is a ++!

    Overpriced dishes that were not worth it. The service was okay, but the hostess looked peeved when my friend and I wanted a booth instead of the awkward table placed next to a wall.

    Bagels are excellent...but they only do fish. Don't ask for eggs or the other breakfast staples.

    The classic!

    $18 for Eggs Benny is highway robbery but it was delicious so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Tourist trap. Go spend your time somewhere else.

    Better spot if alone. I had no wait, often free bar stool. Lox is awesome. Bagel is solid but better around.

    If you like kosher style and Jewish food, this is the place if you are near by. (Warning: It's not kosher!)

    super heebster and eggs Benny with the babka French toast, all perfect
  • Neena B.
    I got the Shtetl board and caraway Bloody Mary, both were amazing! Great atmosphere for brunch... worth the hour-long wait! Especially since they text when your table is coming available
  • Rodrigo G.
    Some people think this place is overrated but it is not. It was worth the 1+ hour wait. The classic platter with lox is excellent. Strong and tasty Bloody Mary. Love the old-fashioned interior.

    The wait was long but worth it. We got the Anne platter and it was more than enough for four of us.

    Anne platter between 4 people is more than enough food. Salmon and sturgeon were my favorite 🏆

    Very busy, but very delicious. Classic board with lox is great. Try the babka french toast for something sweet. Good coffee. Great bloody mary. The wait will be long, but definitely worth a go.

    The coffee culture in US leaves much to be desired when I was served water when I ordered a flat white... that said, the food was great! Note to self: always check drinks menu first

    I'm sure the classic platter with lox is delicious, but go out of your comfort zone here. The super heebster bagel toast is incredible. Come before 10 on weekends to skip the line!
