    I have never submitted a review on open table before; however, I have never been so disappointed in a restaurant! Service was some of the worse I've ever received, apart from being clumsy the waiter was incredibly unhelpful, for example refusing to substitute coffee for tea as part of a full english breakfast. Now I understand the menu did specify coffee is included, but I have NEVER heard of such a request proving so outrageous it is flat out refused. Incidentally, food was average at best, certainly not worth the money.

    Loved loved loved Delicatessen! The ambience was romantic and cozy but still had a bar on the side. The staff were all very helpful and kind; multiple people throughout the night would attend to you and keep you posted with any of your order's updates. I went for my birthday and the manager came up to the table herself with complimentary champagne and asked if we needed anything else. The food was also delicious -- don't leave without trying the spinach & artichoke dip. The truffle taste is to die for. And the mac & cheese is also great and cheesy and layered.

    I would have given it a better overall rating if it was not for the noise level. The music was blasting. No way that one could carry on a conversation. We were 4 of us including two people in their mid twenties and they felt the same way. Too bad because I like the place. The service was very good and friendly. The choice of wines is very good.

    First of all, our waiter was way too rude. He asked for us to hurry and make a food choice because he needed all of our food choices at once (appetizer, entree drinks and dessert). I've never heard of such thing. Yes, I understand the appetizer and entree order, but desserts and drinks? I don't even know if I would want dessert! When our food finally arrived, we were missing our side orders, by the time we got them, we finished our entree and just wanted to go. Our Mac and cheese was way too gummy. It didn't taste fresh at all. I do not reccomend AT ALL.

    An dizzling restaurant with very interesting dishes - you haver wanted to eat cheeseburger spring rolls? You must have dinner there!!! You love mac and cheese in a different way - perhaps with duck or lobster - You must have dinner there!! The service is great and it is big fun to have dinner there!

    We arrived very early and were seated immediately. We had some important calls to make and the waitress, Lindsey was wonderful bringing us coffee and allowing us some time and privacy. The lobster sliders were absolutely delicious as were the fries. The mussels were fantastic too. Our coffee was refilled without us asking and overall the map was wonderful and I will certainly be back

    I wanted to try delicatessen for a while and was not disappointed. Food is great, service excellent and very attentive. Must have the meatballs, scallops and tuna! Very hip crowd. If you want quieter dining, sit towards the front.

    The service was great as well as the food. I had the mac and cheese and truffle fries. The mussels were excellent as well. I took my boyfriend here to celebrate his birthday and he enjoyed it more than i could ever expect. I am planning a date night with my mother one night because i know she will love it as much as i did.

    Great food as usual. The service was incredibly slow. I come here often and the service seems to get slower and slower each time I visit. Took at least 30 minutes until we could order and once the food came out (another 30-35 minute wait), my side was missing.

    Unfortunately the service was really lacking -- the waiter was almost robotic, zero emotion. The food was pretty good, we both got the 3 egg breakfast which was a really good deal for the amount of food you get. Drinks are very expensive, but that's SoHo for you.

    Wow! Couldn't decide on the wide array of choices so had a bunch of appetizers. Each one was so different and delicious. Generally all the choices are old favorites with a twist. Cheeseburger egg rolls, duck with goat cheese dumplings, meatballs with burrata cheese, all so good. Around the table were pork chops, beef and broccoli, and fried chicken, which was the only weak spot at the table...a little dry on the chicken. Overall a great experience.

    I enjoy having lunch at Delicatessen during the work week. I work in Soho therefore it is very convenient. The food choices for lunch are terrific, the food is delicious and most importantly the service is quick. I am in and out within an hour when I have lunch there during the work week. I highly recommend their Truffle Parmigiano Fries and their different varieties of Mac and Cheese but everything at Delicatessen is good!

    After a long wait for service, I ordered grilled yellowtail tuna with pineapple rice. While it was delicious, the portion was small and there was no vegetable requiring me to order a side of greens. This brought the entree to a whopping 35 dollars. While we waited there was no bread. When I asked for some, they said it cost a dollar. CHARGING for bread when EVERY restaurant in the city doesn't? TACKY!!!!!

    The food was ok. I was hoping for better, but was a little disappointed. The baja tacos had little to no flavor, the skirt steak - while perfectly marinated - was well done. And it took a decent amount of time for our food to come out - both appetizers and main entree. Atmosphere was great, drinks were great. I think if I were to return it would be for drinks and mac and cheese, or other appetizers.
