    This place is amazing but as is the case with a lot of New York restaurants, they are more concerned with flipping the tables than allowing you to enjoy your meal and conversation. They usually have the same set of waitressss working and when the place is not super busy, they are friendly and nice. When the volume turns up though, they become all business and no smiles or friendly banter. The food here, though is top notch and I always leave satisfied with the quality and the value.

    The best deli and smoked meat in New York (may even be better than the smoked meat restaurants in Montreal).

    i loved the idea of this restaurant and was excited to finally go for brunch. It was not a happy experience. The service was reasonably good but the food was not. In particular, the brisket ends with the breakfast platter were so salty as to be inedible (and I like salt)! Potato pancakes were ok but really you can have them a thousand times better at veselka or ukranian national home a few blocks away. also, there is a distinctly meaty odor that did not bother me but turned off the kids in my party. So sorry to have to give a terrible review but wow what a disappointment. Was so looking forward to it, but was sorely disappointed and will not return.

    This is a Manhattan branch of a Brooklyn-based deli which attempts to echo the owner's (?) Montreal roots. At least in Manhattan, the vibe is more cafeteria than restaurant. We shared a corned beef on rye, and a poutine. To be fair, this was on a Sunday night, and so maybe the rye bread couldn't be really fresh. But the corned beef wasn't a smash hit, either. The poutine was not comparable to either of the two versions we explored recentlyin Montreal. It had little substance to the gravy, and the mix of cheese and fries didn't seem as complete as in Montreal. Still, if you're in the neighborhood, give them a try, because everyone's tastes can be different, and the people who work there are very pleasant.

    love the food here, and get sandwiches to eat in for take out regularly. this time, had a cheesesteak, which i think was a special, and a naragansett/del's shandy for lunch. such a nice, breezy, welcoming vibe, excellent cheerful service. super fries! a real favorite in this neighborhood.

  • bad brunch at Bond
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 4/27/2014
    Having been to the Brooklyn location and enjoyed the food I had reasonable expectations for Bond Street. I own the Mile End cookbook and am fans of what was created in Brooklyn. Borscht was thin and astringent with way too much dill and little beat flavor. Smoked meat was dried out and poorly cut. Plenty of fat (too much) but without contributing to moisture and flavor. Sandwich was not well-constructed. Latkes were precooked and probably reheated. Insides were mushy, outside not crisp. Another in our party liked their smoked meat/burger with egg. Service- poorly timed- and the borscht was forgotten until I reminded the staff (and would have been better off if they had never brought it) Good coffee.

    stick with the "smoked meat" and skip the turkey (boring) and/or corned beef (dry and not flavorful) chopped liver was great seasonal ramp flatbread was also great

    We made a reservation for Valentine's Day, as we've been wanting to come here for some time. At 6pm on a Friday, we were seated immediately, and it wasn't too crowded, since it's soon after the restaurant opens. We ordered the Shabbat special, which is offered every Friday, and it was delicious and more food than we needed. We took home enough leftovers to split for a small lunch the next day. We will definitely be back for more brisket. YUM.

    When I heard Mile End was doing a Hannukah prefixe I made a reservation immediately (I'd done the Chinese prefixe before and it was divine). No surprise, it was heavenly. Over seven courses, we were brought thoughtfully crafted dishes that played a modern spin on a very traditional cuisine. The service was excellent and the vibe was good. Definitely a place worth checking out.

    I used to go here for lunch but they have redone their interior and menu to make it more suitable for dinner. The dinner is fit for foodies with modified versions of some of their more popular lunch plates. Their smoked meat is always amazing (but the plate makes it easier to share and better for dinner). We ordered their kale and Jerusalem artichoke salad which was fantastic. Their chopped liver was delicious and so were the friend artichokes. They also have a very interesting wine list. (Also, make sure to leave room for dessert. Their donuts are fantastic!) This place is changing the face of Jewish comfort food for NY foodies!

  • Mile End Deli Rocks It

    Dined on 11/9/2013
    Transforming itself to a sit-down restaurant, Mile End has made the leap to a dining destination. Accomplished cooking at dinner -- delicious old standbys at breakfast and lunch. Dinner stars that we tried include appetizers of fried artichokes, beet salad and chopped liver, entrees of smoked meat burger (messy to eat but worth the fight), grilled trout (who would've thunk!), and a sausage plate. All came with excellent accompaniments (the fries are particularly delicious), and there is good beer and wine to be had. We were only three, so could not partake in more from the menu, but we chatted with the large table next to us who tried a wider selection (smoked meat platter, etc.), and they were of the same mind as us. Highly recommended.

    Was curious to try Mile End after the Brooklyn location was so raved about. For the dinner hour, there is full table service, a different menu and wine service. It makes for a comfortable but casual spot for dinner, and service was friendly and warm but professional. I tried a few different things, including the brussels sprouts, fried green tomatoes and the smoked meat poutine. Note that Mile End is not exactly a diet option and many of the dishes are quite heavy, plus I found some of them oversalted. For people who aren't looking for a light meal I do think Mile End is a good choice for a dinner with friends, but I'm not sure if it merits all the raves I've heard about the Brooklyn location.
