    My first time eating shrimp salad. It was fresh, crispy, and creamy. All on a toasted everything bagel. Washed it down with a slice of carrot cake. Simply Amazing! Great and friendly staff. Love this

    Pastrami on par with Katz's, with far fewer tourists. Sit-down is not as family-brunch-oriented as nearby 2nd Ave Deli, as Sarge's is more about Murray Hill's young adults - 24 hrs and huge portions.

    Try the Souper Soup. "Sitting in the heady chicken broth, which demands no salt, are a hearty beef kreplach, noodles and a gigantic matzoh ball that straddles the line between floater and sinker." Read more

    The pastrami (order it "fatty") is amazing, as is the matzo ball soup. Watch out for dirty forks and plates. Service was barely adequate, though stereotypical for a NY deli.

    Take the mixed sandwich no. 3. If you're a european and not used to the american portion size, take one to share with a friend. It will fill you, I promise!

    They don't mess around at Sarge's. HUGE portions. Bowl sized coffee cups. Huge lunch plates (nothing junior about the junior ruben). The $30 Monster sandwich is...a monster.

    The corned beef can't measure up. It finds the meaning of its life not in a sandwich, but in the corned beef hash-slivers of salty meat fried crisp that overpower the smidgens of potato. Read more

    I don't even like pastrami and I'm in love with their pastrami & corned beef sandwich with russian dressing :) skip the matzo ball soup and the cheesecake though

    Caroline Lee · August 17, 2011

    Try the The Cookout Burger - Smokey BBQ sauce, cheddar cheese, bacon, sautéed mushrooms and onions. Served with lettuce, tomato, and Bermuda onion.

  • Daniel B.

    Quite possibly my favorite deli in NY. I grew up on their pastrami and corned beef on Sundays. Can't go wrong with anything from Sarges.

    Daniel Barnett · November 30, 2014
  • Paul B.

    The half sandwich and "cup" of soup special is fantastic, but it leaves me wondering just how humongous a "bowl" of soup must be.

    Paul Bryant-Smith · January 16
  • Julie L.

    Sit down for lunch and try the amazing family-style cole slaw and pickles. Check out the cool pictures on the walls while you're there!

    One of our favorite spots to get a good pastrami on rye. Don't sleep on the corned beef though, it's mouthwateringly good.

    Home of The Monster – just try and finish a $30 Pastrami sandwich on your own. Stop by 24 hours a day and explore the vast menu.

    Sarge's Delicatessen's Pastrami Sandwich voted #1 on The VillageVoice's 10 Best Late Night Eats in New York City:

    Village Voice · April 19, 2012
  • Andrew W.

    Best corned beef and pastrami in NYC. Open 24/7 which is incredible. They never close which is even better.

    Andrew Wengrover · December 19, 2014
  • Alex F.

    Just as good, if not better than the other big name delis in NYC. Go for lunch for more bang for your buck

    Alex Fish · September 3, 2014
  • The Corcoran Group

    Excellent pastrami and fries. Can you finish “The Monster”? Supposedly NYC largest sandwich. Do it and win a free t-shirt.

    The Corcoran Group · August 27, 2010
  • Jay M.

    Love that matzoh ball soup. Love that this place appears to be a kosher deli but it totally serves whatever they want

  • Village Voice

    Winner of Best Late-Night Eats in the Village Voice 2011 Best Of issue! Come in any 24 hours of the day and ask for an extra-thick sliced pastrami.

  • Ricky S.

    Super friendly service along with good food make this a great choice for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

    Ricky Sherrill · January 20, 2015
  • Radovan Andrej G.

    No wifi. You can only use the 1 hour free TWC connection which is very sloooow. Don't trust the wifi sign on the door.

  • Gil L.

    Delivery ANYWHERE in Manhattan 24/7 - gotta love 'em. They also have fantastic sable fish (butter fish/black cod)

    Gil Lang · December 5, 2010
  • Shanta M.

    The menu states noodle kugel serves two but fails to tell you the cheesecake serves three. Both are delicious.

    Shanta Mali · July 21, 2012
  • Thomas M.

    Sandwiches here are pricy but very good and very large. I wish they sliced the meat thicker though.

    Thomas Mo · June 14, 2015
  • Dan N.

    The sandwiches are pricey, but enormous, bring a big appetite or prepare to take home a doggy bag.

    Dan Nugent · June 4, 2014
  • Elie B.

    A dying breed. Get the half sandwich (pastrami) half soup (matzah ball). You will be stuffed.

    Elie Bleier · July 3, 2014

    Late night, order the Corned Beef Hash, and ask them to make it extra crispy with over easy eggs.

    Travel Swagger · November 14, 2010
  • Josephine S.

    They're back! And my new job is only 3 blocks away...that's either very good or very bad! Still my favorite pastrami in NYC, no contest!

    Josephine Son · July 18, 2014

    I had takeout via seamless and had amazing soup! Definitely great when you aren't feeling great!

    Try the Hand-Sliced Nova Scotia Salmon On Bagel - #delicious #salmon #bagel

  • Robbie G.

    The Bald Waiter with Glasses is the worst! I don't understand why they don't fire him. Must be related to the owner

    Robbie Glessman · June 14, 2012
  • Joe S.

    Kinda expensive but worth it. Rivals 2 nd ave deli and under the same management.

    Joe Socram · March 27, 2010
  • Josephine S.

    Best pastrami in NYC, yes better than Katz's! Love the old school vibe & cranky waitresses.
