    Not as good as it used to be! Portions were smaller and the corned beef was not as lean and stacked as I remember it being.

    I brought my boyfriend here for his birthday along with his parents, aunt and uncle. The food was delicious, the atmosphere was interesting and our service from Thomas was exceptional. He was helpful, friendly, efficient and had a smile on his face the whole time. We interacted with a couple of other employees and they were pleasant as well. An outstanding experience altogether!

    We went for Easter dinner. Coffee came cold and we returned it. We ordered off the special menu for Easter supper. Soup and salat and out and soup was lukewarm. We mentioned the soup was warm no response. Before we had two bites the main meal came out which was lukewarm. We complained it was too soon and that was cold. Then menu said choice of cheesecake. There was no choice. We went to the front counter and spoke to the staff, who said they choose. Terrible service and lukewarm food. Not impressed.

    Sorry to say this was a terrible experience. We always enjoy ourselves at Lucky Dill, but not this time. The restaurant was nearly empty which was surprising for Easter, but I did make reservations. We were seated immediately by a very nice hostess, but it went downhill hill from there. Cian ( I believe) was our server and was completely clueless. I asked for rolls , took forever, soups came out with the meals except for the one he forgot. It arrived eventually. I ordered the french dip with a pickle (which they charge.99 for). The au jus was so thick it was more like gravy. The portions are still incredibly large which hasn’t changed. There was a surprise of a 3 percent service charge we weren’t told about or told what it was for. Unfortunately, we are going to take a break from the Lucky Dill, because we felt no luck with our experience.

    We have always enjoyed the Lucky Dill and their food, but the recent menu revamp led to increased prices, on top of a 3% additional charge on every meal, even for cash-paying customers and desserts, which we found excessive. We also paid $5 for a fountain drink! It puts unnecessary pressure on the waitstaff to explain it repeatedly. If they are adding a service fee, it should be included in each item's price so to not put on their staff to explain. This practice seems petty and could potentially affect tipping, especially for seniors who may not realize the extra charge doesn't benefit the waiter. Despite this, I still tipped our waiter 23% as he provided excellent service, but not everyone may be as understanding, especially given the already high prices for items like a $20-$23 sandwich with fries. I know a lot of people are adding 3% for credit card but to add for the cash customers is crazy. Other than that we do love the restaurant just a little disappointed in the recent changes. We most likely won’t go back as often due to this since there are a lot of other options around.

    The pastrami sandwich was over the top good. The Greek salad with chicken was also very good but you can leave out the tomatoes. Doesn’t help the recommendation!

    We were there early and there weren't a lot of tables. At first, we were seeing our server at a good pace. However, once the order was in, he virtually disappeared. Also, it is Restaurant 101 that when someone orders a condiment for their meal on the side, that it come out with the meal. I ordered mayo on the side for my hamburger and had to ask 3 times before it got there 2/3'ds of the way through the burger. My wife and another member of our party ordered a soup and sandwich combo, the soup didn't come until beyond halfway through the meal even though we asked both the servers and our waiter numerous times where it was. They all just shouted out that it'd be here soon. It wasn't. I was a heartbeat from going directly to the kitchen to get some help. Finally, as mentioned, the restaurant wasn't crowded, but it took way too long for food to get there, and the meals arrived in bits and pieces that took over 5 minutes to arrive (except for the soup). Bottom line - food was good - service and wait time were poor to bad. Would not want to be there when it's crowded.

    Food was excellent, however while it wasn’t busy the service was terrible. We sat down at 4 pm and waitress brought menus and took our drink order-25 minutes later our drinks came-20 minutes later the waitress finally came to take our order. Food came with in 15 minutes-never came back to clear table. Waited another 15 minutes to get our check. Lack of service took the joy out of our family outing. Can’t understand why-other tables were getting prompt service-just not what someone should expect when spending over $160 for deli food.

    The food is was outstanding. We were warned by the host that service might be slow because we were outside, but it wasn’t. The pasta faziole soup was delish with my salad with tuna. My husband got a triple decker tuna club and he ate half at lunch and half at dinner!

    Haven't been there in a while, it was not crowded at all, I think when we left there was only one other table with people, Our Waiter was super sweet, and very helpful. Service was great. We usually get the platters for 4, that is 4 meats, bread, salads soup and dessert. The price was much higher, but then again everything is higher these days. (Use to pay like $15 a person, now it is $22 pp) But still worth it, I guess. I did not like the fact they took knishes off the menu., I love them and was kinda bumed they took them off.

    We have been to Lucky Dill over 20x and have had a great food and service experience every time. So my boyfriend wanted to go for his birthday, I made a reservation. When we arrived we were ushered passed the bar to a side wing of the restaurant. I had never been over this of the restaurant and I will not sit there again. All the chairs were metal and not comfortable and very low making it hard for me to comfortably eat my food. Our waiter was handling the other tables around us. It took about 15 minutes to get drinks and then he took off without asking if we wanted an appetizer. I don’t know if he had tables elsewhere but he was gone for about 10 mins and then came back helped other tables and after 15 mins came back for our order. Throughout the service, we needed napkins, more drinks and we couldn’t get his attention. I am not sure if he was hard of hearing, had worked 24hrs straight with no sleep or just oblivious but the service was terrible, I was so disappointed. I gave a 20% tip because who knows what is going on in the waiters life but it didn’t deserve 1 more penny of my money. My daughter got the kid’s spaghetti and chicken- it was cold and barely any sauce and chunks of tomatoes. I told her it’s a deli, this dish isn’t their forte and she barely ate any, least she was happy with her garlic bread. We won’t be back for a while, if we do go back again.

    Waitress fine. Food mostly inedible. MANY items now unavailable...knishes, Dr. Brown sodas, bread that was soggy, sandwiches likely microwaved, no onion rolls, etc. How dare you call that expensive drink an egg cream. After many years of visiting this restaurant and its a drive of over an hour. We won't be back.

    The service was terribly slow. We had to ask for bread and drink refills. One of the meals had plastic in it, which they remade. It tasted like freezer burned. The corned beef was dry. We used to love coming here, but it seems to have gone downhill. I had been eating there since the original location at Alderman & 19. We were told that there is new owners. I hope this was just and off night, as the food used to be amazing.

    Made a reservation for lunch and I’m glad I did because the restaurant gets very busy at lunch. We were promptly seated and had a very attentive waitress. The food seemed to be taking a long time and our waitress explained she thought she sent the order in electronically but she admitted she accidentally cancelled it. She reordered the food and it was brought out without delay. The waitress didn’t charge us for our drinks and she gave us all a piece of cheese cake “on the house” for her mistake. That act of kindness was not needed but it was appreciated by us.

    Ordered the corned beef sliders and fries at $17. Was shocked to realize the corned beef was absolutely bland---that's right BLAND!!!! How can you serve corned beef that has no flavor and say you are just like a New York deli--I worked in NYC for 8+ years and can tell you unequivocally, these sliders would never hit a table in the "Big Apple"!!!

    We have been dining at Lucky Dill for 20 years but this was a first time in a year that we had gone back. The waitress/bartender was new, so she struggled to answer menu questions. She was very friendly and attentive. My wife order no onions on her sandwich but it came with onions. We brought it back and corrected. Took about 10 minutes. Someone in my party asked if bread still came with the meal, the waitress said it was by request so we requested it. Lucky Dill had always offered a free slice of cheesecake with each meal. When she asked if we wanted dessert, we asked if the free cheesecake still came with the meal. She again said, it was by request. So the. 4 of all requested free cheesecake. We were told that Lucky Dill had new owners and they had been running out of bread and cheesecake so it all came by having to ask. While the menu is still a good size, the all day breakfast and prime rib are no longer available. The meal was good, the waitress was pleasant and did her best but overall comparing it to past visits it was a little disappointing. Here’s hoping that the new owners don’t buy them out of business.

    Lucky Dill Deli has always drawn a local crowd and their food is quite delicious; however, it seems they have made a few changes recently. Our server, Phillip, was awesome...so patient with our large party and very thorough. The kitchen was quite slow and definitely not as thorough as our server. It took about an hour to get our food and, even then, the sandwiches that were supposed to be served hot were served cold.

    We like this restaurant but can see a decline. Numerous items we ordered were not available and multiple items on menu crossed off with magic marker. Our server Rob was good and did his best to accommodate our table of eight. Overall food was good and hopefully they get back on track.

    After going to Lucky Dill for Thanksgiving dinner for the last 6 years and loving it, we will not be going back again. This year the food was off. We were not allowed any to go boxes, which having 2 children under 10 was unacceptable. The bill was around $150 for 2 adults and 2 children... and no to go box. Rolls were hard, dinner was luke warm and less than acceptable... beans were mushy, stuffing was terrible, and no dark meat with the turkey. After going to this restaurant for over 30 years and it being one of our favorites, We WILL NOT BE GOING BACK.
