Success! Thanks for posting your review of Lansky's Old World Deli. You’ve done the world some good today.

Fabulous mac & cheese

My hubby and I ate at Lansky's two days ago. Service was top notch, our waitress pleasant. Luvvvv the mac&cheese, my husband and I split a small dish of it since I had ordered the corned beef and cabbage which was just loaded with corned beef, for me, the cabbage could have been cooked longer. My husbands sandwich was so huge he could only eat half of it. Also I found their cole slaw sooo good. Unfortunately, no roo... view more

Food inspection rating: ""B"" Management: F.

Check out the ""B"" rating from NYC - take a look at how many infractions that is!! The food and prices are decent, but the place is run like a Times Square chain. Rude, and seemingly inexperienced management have no idea how to organize a well-run restaurant, let alone treat their customers like customers.

Simply the Best

Take it from a real ""Jewish"" princess, this is the best deli in New York. I know what your going to say......and the usual suspects....forget about it. Their matzoh ball soup has NO RIVALS. The pastrami was just as good as Katz's, and at 25% cheaper. The french fries are to die for. And if you have room at the end, the cheesecake is the best. The prices so reasonable, and don't miss the lady in the front taking to ... view more

Very delicious!

I had dinner there this past weekend.....service, food and decor was great. Everything on the menu that my group tried was delicious. I especially enjoyed the dessert (my group had an animated argument over which dessert was the yummiest....they are all great but I particularly enjoyed the bread pudding). \r \r The wait staff is charming, and the restaurant has been tastefully designed to exude an old world charm. ... view more

Best Deli In new York

I think that years ago the famed deli's in New York were great, but I also think that for the most part that they rest on their laurels. Well they better watch out because Lansky's has arrived on the scene, and this place in a few short months has surpassed the food in all the rest. I found the sandwiches to be oversized, juicy and delicious. Where Lansky's far surpasses the rest is with the food from the kitchen. Th... view more

Its Cold Outside...And I found the Best Soup in Town!!!

Its 16 degrees outside, and I am in serious need of hot soup to warm my bones. I headed over to Lansky's, a new ""Jewish"" style deli and picked up a quart of theri ""Jewish penicilin"", their matzoh ball soup is the best soup in the city, with no peers. It is thick with noodles, vegetables, chicken mear ( yes I said real chiciken meat!) and two large matzho ball. This soup really wamrs the heart, and the tummy too.\... view more

UWS gem-place is great-had to say it!

I'm embarrased to say, I go there 3-4 times a week. I had to write a review, my 1st ever-they are that good\r The sandwiches are huge-juicy and cheap. You can make 2 sandwiches from one sandwich-ask for extra bread, they don't care if you share. \r The burgers and hot dogs-their standouts. Again huge-10 oz burgers and foot long dogs-you have to get them both with cheese and pastrami bits (genius idea)\r But I have... view more

The Devil Dog!!!!

Love this place for many reasons; best matzoh ball soup in the city, great burger, but I had a dish the past evening they call a ""Devil Dog"". This a foot long hot dog that is deepfried. They offer many different toppings, i had it with sauteed jalapenos, chili and cheddar, wow!! This is sinful and delicious. \r If you have room, try the strawberry cheesecake, finish with a cup of coffee, it is like going to heaven... view more

New Neighborhood Staple

The UWS has a new favorite, one that will feed you for all meals. I have had all three meals here and it is the best. In fact the weekend brunch has become the place to be and seen. It seems that everyone knows each other, great fun. The regular menu offer the best burger in the city. The matzo ball soup makes all other look sick. The pastrami on rye is huge and under 10 buck a great bargin. The rice pudding is very ... view more

Genuine Food...Genuine Prices

I have made this new deli my favorite watering hole. Food is great, the portions are very large, so I love that they have added a half sandwich and soup, love it. Burger is one of the best in the city, and for under 6 bucks, just ridiculous. Soups come in giant bowls, heart warming and delicious. The hot dog is foot long and deep fried, they call it a ""devil dog"", they come with many topping< bring all your friends... view more
