    Three scrambled eggs, a huge portion of slightly overcooked hash browns, and a large green salad was a HUGE amount of food! The avocado chicken sandwich was delicious.

    One word to describe our evening with STK was immaculate. Our service with Adriana and Cory was top shelf. The cocktails were tasty yet strong, the wine was out of the park. The food made me want to get up and walk out in the good way.

    The place was clean the staff were welcoming. I ordered the blueberry pancakes it was fresh and warm. The pastrami sandwich with eggs was deliciously cooked perfect. The chocolate brownie Sunday was so delicious. Real chocolate the brownie was soft and not gooey.

    The hostess was extremely rude and professional. She felt entitled to treat us very badly and to speak to us very I condescendingly when I asked about our reservation. When she realized that I was frustrated and upset with the way she was talking to me, she started laughing and rolling her eyes instead of apologizing.

    This is the newer location for Carnegie Deli; we had been to the other before it closed. With that! Carnegie Deli remains a top spot to dine and enjoy the corner in NYC. Servings are plentiful and food is tasty. Desserts are over the top with flair and flavor. We came for the ever famous corned beef on rye, matzo soup, and cheesecake. Everyone was enjoying their food and the atmosphere. Seating was available inside and on the sidewalk. We made reservation through Open Table and were seated upon check in. The staff were energetic, eager to please, and knowledgable of the menu. We walked out satisfied and glad to have come to refresh the memory of this deli.

    the pastrami was better than Friedman's but not as good as the Brooklyn Diner i hate to say but the service was much nicer - bread and sides were rather blah - prices were the same as Friedman's but the pastrami was better

    I had not eaten corned beef in years, finding it tasteless. So visiting NYC since moving away , I was delighted to see it on the menu. It was so damn good! I enjoyed each morsel. I loved the old photos on the wall of the Carnegie Cafe and knew all but one. Yes I am older now but seeing those pictures was a treat for me.

    After seeing a performance at the Carnegie Center across the street, me and 3 other family members absolutely loved the burgers we ordered. The food was amazing, however, I wish there were more choices for non alcoholic beverages, we ordered sprites instead due to the limited selection of non alcoholic beverages. The ambiance was good and the noise level was normal. Great diner, great food, for a great value.

    It would be nice as you tell the server your allergies that the kitchen actually responds. I mentioned I was allergic to carrots and parsley and my food had carrots in it and parsley all over the plate.

    Nothing much to say. It was ok but nothing exceptional. Service was a bit rushed, we had barely sat down that we were already being pressured to order…. Like let us read the menu first please ! Don’t like to go out for diner and feel pressured to hurry up and leave. Also, we had only finished our plates that the bill was already being presented to us. I mean if the place was full and they needed the table i d understand but it was almost empty…. Why the rush ?

    It's easy to TAKE a reservation, but you also have to HOLD the reservation. We waited 40 minutes for a table even though they had our reservation on file. Service was slow, food was ok. I wouldn't go back, and wouldn't recommend people to make a reservation. If you walk by and there is space, it's not a bad spot.

    Tried ordering 3 different items and they were out of each thing. 1:2 party received drinks ordered and then other half received after asking 3 times and halfway through food. The food came out 1 person at a time. Almost didn’t think the 4th person in our party was going to get the food they ordered.

    Place was pretty busy. Thank goodness for a reservation. Our wait was about 15 minutes with the reservation. The French toast was delicious. We were initially going to order pancakes, but the waitress told us the wait was longer for them than the French toast, but we were glad she informed us of such ahead of time. The food came out fairly quickly. Overall good experience and would recommend for brunch.
