    Long story short: After 3 people making 3 attempts to get serviced at the meat/fish counter, 1 attempt to find the manager/someone at the CS Desk, we received help. 30 minutes and no apology...poor!!!

    Old Amsterdam's premium aged Gouda considered the "people's favorite," make sure to not miss out next time you come shopping.

    Nicest food emporium I've been too. More like a whole foods experience

    Greg Hogue · November 11, 2012
  • Sarah F.

    Always out of produce or the staff is "on break" if you need something.

  • Far C.

    This is their best branch so far ~ love the location (under the bridge), Lavazza cafe + International Food Specialty Section. Cozy ambiance and lines are never long. +++

  • James O.

    The worst grocery store in all of Manhattan. Insane product display and organization, lousy selection and overall just a waste of time. Order Fresh Direct if you want to eat.

    There's a retaining wall on the 59th Street side that you can stand on to watch runners coming off the bridge during the NYC Marathon.
