One of my favorite places for a low-key dinner-- be sure to make a reservation in advanced. I think that something must have happened to our food because it took easily over an hour, but the staff kept apologizing, even brought over a free app which unfortunately for me was not vegetarian. They even sent over extra drinks since I couldn't have the apps. Thought they went above and beyond to fix their mistake, which was OK with us since my friend and I were catching up anyway. He got the signature burger and said it was unreal.

My boyfriend and I recently went here for a date night. The ambiance is the best part about this restaurant, especially when the weather is nice and the restaurant is very open. The food was pretty good - but the highlight of the meal were the truffle fries.

Food was just okay for prices that steep. Outdoor tables are very small and VERY close together. I was at my table for 10 minutes or so before our server came by. She didn't mention there was a soup of the day and asked if we were ready to order before asking if we wanted a drink.

It's an okay place, but there are far better restaurants in the area.

Came here for lunch with my daughter. The service was excellent, as we initially sat outside, but it was brisk and my daughter wanted to move inside. The staff was more than welcoming in moving us inside. The food was great (you must order the cheeseburger Spring Rolls) and it arrived promptly. I would definitely recommend this place!!

The food was good, although they ignored my request for no chili flakes on my dish and the service was fair. Our waiter was fine, but the hostess wouldn't seat us until all parties were present even though there were TONS of tables open. She also wasn't super friendly. The food was good but not worth the price to me. I probably won't be returning.

Delicatessen is a well designed, happy environment for a casual meal. It gets busy with 20 and 30 something clientele later as the evening progresses. Very reasonably priced and food enjoyable- started with Tuna Tatare- a definite order- yummy, the Salmon was perfectly cooked and tasty and the truffle fries, one of their signatures well prepared.
The ambiance was simple, but well thought out and it is truly an inside/outside restaurant with the entire interior surrounded by sets of folding doors open to the outside. The only problems were that the air conditioning was totally inadequate and on a humid summer evening, it became unbearably hot. The other issue was the steep set of stairs leading to a lower level lounge and bathrooms- too steep and if you have a few drinks or older- don't try it.
Other than those two items, a good place to go

Delicatessen is an old reliable for me where you can have great casual meal with very good food, outdoor eating, excellent service all at a good value. Breakfast and brunch is always good and reliable. The burgers are fantastic and some of the best in the city, especially served with their amazing parmesan truffle fries, and the fresh seared aurora salmon appetizer is simply one of the best dishes I've had recently (note: I love salmon). Their award winning Chicken Thigh is also excellent and the mac bar and other offerings really make for a great meal!

Bustling Soho restaurant. Service was excellent. Portions skimpy - Nicoise salad - four slices of tuna, one-half egg, a small corner of greens, a few fingerling potatoes. Good flavor but $28. For what was a side salad portion. My friend enjoyed her lobster roll. Great location to watch the ebb and flow of people in Soho. It was a hot day, and the doors were open to the street. Did I mention the service was excellent?

As usual, Delicatessen failed to disappoint. The decision to go here was driven by my craving for fried chicken. There are not many, if any, that do fried chicken better than here. Perfectly crisp, not greasy and seasoned just enough. The awesome cornbread makes a great accompaniment.
My wife always thoroughly enjoys the 4 Cheese Mac and Cheese. Slightly smoky, velvety and creamy and absolutely delicious.
The perfectly cooked haricots vert made a great shareable side for the both of us.

We were obliged to order starter and main course together despite having asked to order the starter first and the dish afterwards. By the way when the waiter went to the manager to let us order separate he said " no way" in a non polite way.

I took my best friend to lunch for her 30th birthday. I have been to Delicatessen before, for date nights and fun dinners with friends. I've never had a problem with service, but our waiter, Clint, was exceptionally rude, pompous and snippy. He called my friend "Hunny" in a condescending tone and manor. He treated us as if we did not belong there, yet all of us have dined there many times before. It was a special occasion and his demeanor and the way he treated us unfortunately put a damper on the mood and the afternoon. Unfortunate because of establishment and it's impeccable food. There is no reason you should feel as if you don't belong when you are paying 18$ for salmon as an add on to your salad, which he went out of his way to point out to us was the price. Very rude. He also claimed to have to up charge my friend for extra lettuce when her Mediterranean Farro Salad was lacking it. That was truly unbelievable, and when we were visibly uncomfortable with the idea of that, I had mentioned to my friends that my family knows the owners, which he overheard and THEN decided to not charge her for the 5 extra pieces he brought. Not the best experience, in my opinion.

Great food per usual, but it was SO HOT. I thought the AC might have been broken and were in inside, not outside. The salmon was A+ and my brother got turkey chili and then the burger = A+ as well. I am definitely going back to try more like the skirt steak salad.

Came here for breakfast on a Monday morning. Not crowded at all, and was served in a timely manner. The food could have been better - we ordered eggs with house fries, pork sausage and sourdough toast. The coffee was absolutely terrible, and was very disappointed that they did not offer a replacement when I complained about my latte. I took two sips but couldn't drink anymore. Not great value for money - would recommend trying Blue Dog on Mulberry Street instead of this place.
