not to go. Over priced, food was cold. No soup spoon was provided nor napkins. The kaiser roll was stale and by the time I got to my hotel which was -4 minutes down the road the soup was cold. All round this was a very bad experience for me. Will not go back.

Love corned beef. My wife and I travel a lot and eat out a lot. C&L's have a good corned beef sandwich if they asked $5 instead of $12. We don't mind spending $12 for a sandwich, but this isn't it. Not only is it small, but you don't even get a pickle with it! My wife's cheeseburger was about a $3 sandwich, but they asked $12 for it also! And we don't mind cafeteria seating and atmosphere, but the premium charges didn't reflect the experience. I asked the waiter which of the corned beef sandwiches he would recommend and he informed us he wouldn't eat red meat and we should consider the turkey. ""Dining with Steve"" recommend this place and I now question their judgment. Table wasn't clean and service was almost non existent. Wouldn't recommend.

Well since the salmonella incident I have steered clear of this place, but the kids were hungry and we were in the neighborhood, so I thought I would give it it another try. What a mistake ! It took 45 minutes to get 3 sandwiches. In that 45 minutes I watched the busboy put the dirty dish bin on a table, clear the table and not wipe the table down. A dirty napkin fell on to a set of clean fork/spoon/knife and he left it there for the next patron to eat with. Our waitress was overwhelmed and was rolling her eyes and muttering under her breath every time she passed our table. I usually leave a 22 percent tip but I left a 5 % tip because the the service was bad. The cashier actually had the nerve to point out that the tip was low and I told her that the sevice was terrible and I would never go there again. Did she apologize ?? Nope, she said ""have a nice day"".
The real concern that I have is the cleanliness problem. I'm suprised that more people have'nt gotten sick here. There are so many other places to go for deli food (Jack's) . $11 for a turkey sandwhich, surly service and filthy conditions. NEVER again.

It's great! Soups, Salads, Steaks, Seafood,, Jewish delicasies, can't beat 1.00 yep, just one dollar knishes! Comfortable atmosphere, kid friendly, Always great service to me. Cashier checkout is quick. Clean Restroom, Food portions are extra large, Pickels taste better since they are at room temp. Trust my judgement, I'm a Nurse! I'm never disappointed, just Full!

I go to Cleveland to visit relatives...and whenever I go there is only one request I have -- go to Corky & Lenny's -- it is usually the first and last stop I make after getting off the airplane - Also when visiting it is usually the ""meeting place"" for the family. 3 things I recommend: Corned Beef on Potato Latkes (Sandwich Style), 3 Little Tootsies - 3 Mini Challah Rolls filled 1 with Chopped Liver, 1 with Corned Beef, 1 with Pastrami - (satisfies your need for all jewish deli specialites!) and Mish Mosh Soup - chicken soup with a Matzo Ball, Noodles and spaetzle. Either way just their Matzo Ball soup is great. My Aunt always orders Lox, Onions & Eggs. They do have fantastic pickles but no longer leave them out on the table - all you need to do though is request them or depending on the server they'll just drop them off. I had the most friendly and courteous server Friday afternoon for lunch that I have had in a long time at any restaurant. Sunday for brunch we had a very nice yet more of the ""typical"" deli waitress who was quite a character....Also I always order a Chocolate Phosphate (a carbonated chocolate drink, almost like chocolate soda) in honor of my dad who went there over 50 years ago...This is really an iconic Jewish Deli in my opinion. Unless you live in New York this is the best deli around. (I've searched many cities and haven't found one comporable besides NYC.) It is a true institution. I will say during peak times it does tend to get a little noisy so if you want a bit less chaos go during off peak hours.....Oh and I was thrilled to find out they ship :-) !!!!!

We were seated immediately, but it took our server at least 10 minutes to notice us. The pickles on the table were warm, like they had been sitting out all day or maybe all week (a good deli would bring you nice cold pickles!). The food took a long time, and when it did arrive the meat on my sandwich was cold. I didn't have a chance to ask the server about it since she didn't come back for at least 15 more minutes. In addition, the food is extremely overpriced, costing about twice as much as what you'd expect. The only good thing I can say is that my friend enjoyed his reuben. But I didn't enjoy how much he had to pay for it.

We go there often for carry-out. Every single time we order the large Matzoball soup w/noodles (for example), it comes without noodless or without the 2nd matzoball. They're not friendly, especially when you point out their errors. God knows they charge you a lot, but you don't get you monies worth. I will have a better chance at getting what I order from Jack's Deli!

Corky & Lenny's Deli has been a landmark in the suburban Cleveland area since I was a child in the 50's. Even after it moved from the Cedar-Center area to Chagrin Blvd it has kept its ambiance (including the ""antique"" waitstaff they employ) and the quality of the food has not faultered. I moved from Cleveland in the 70's but whenever I come back to visit my parents, still living in Beachwood, we have to have lunch at ""Corky's""!
