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

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

    Pastrami sandwich. Matzoh ball soup. Other hot sandwiches.

    Shrimp Salad & Carrot Cake

    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

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

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

    The pastrami is serious. No joke

    It's really hard to leave here hungry! ❤ The Pastrami Burger, the Mushroom Barley Soup and the Corned Beef sandwich which is huge and delicious. The service is nothing stellar, but it's ok.

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

    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

    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.

    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.

    Kevin Dudley · November 19, 2014
  • Andy M.

    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.

    Andy Martens · November 4, 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

    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

    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!

    Get the Kreplach in the Jewish Deli

    Umair Zia · July 8, 2014
  • Elie B.

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

    Elie Bleier · July 3, 2014

    Back and better then ever!!!!

    Andrew Wengrover · June 12, 2014

    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!

    Ilona Hiila · June 8, 2014
  • Dan N.

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

    Coffee cup vs soup cup.

    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.

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

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

    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 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

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

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

    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
