Not sure what you can say bad about da Deli, and I may have been there 30 times over the last couple years. The location is sick, heart of soho, corner spot, open air in the summer time, great people watching, friendly staff, and solid consistent food. Not trying to break any records nor your pocket book. I always send anyone visiting NYC there for brunch, lunch or some mac n cheese from the adjacent macbar when they're walking around downtown. Never a complaint, only accolades. Very kid friendly place too. Just had the open faced meatball sando recently, which was tastee.

I've been already for brunch, late dinners before a night on the town, etc.
Aside from the awesome vibe of the place, always a decent crowd, i was really impressed by the food. Usually, cool places don't go hand in hand with good food but I was pleasantly surprised by the menu.. which is why i had to come back for more. :)
While you can get a delish burger here (and c'mon, who doesnt like a good burger?!) there are also a bunch of other good things for the health conscious.
Really awesome food, yummy martinis, and always a scene here.
i will def be back.
i'm a fan!!

Today I had lunch there and my bill was $20.29. I gave the waiter $40.00 cash and he returned with $10 in singles. When I asked why I had been short changed he simply replied that there was no ""change"" in the registers. When I asked how a restaurant could have not cash in the register (it was 3 PM and the restaurant opens around 10 AM) he offered to take $1 out of his pocket. Needless to say I refused and short changed his tip by 71 cents. I was so angry and stormed out and didn't even try to get the manager to help. I live in the neighbor and I eat there twice a week! To be treated like this is astonishing even if I wasn't a regular. Guess I will think twice the next time I want to eat out.

I live close by and just went to the restaurant for the second time since it opened. What a drastic difference from the first time I went here (about 3 months ago). The food was great, service was unbeatable and there was a good social vibe in the room. Even better is that the food is very reasonably priced. I HIGHLY RECCOMEND COMING HERE for either a casual Sunday brunch, a fun dinner with friends or a nightcap.
I just happened to be in the neighboorhood shopping and passed by this very cool, modern restaraunt. Its decor is extremely shiek, modern and sophisticated. I decided to try the Chicken Matza Ball soup and my friend had the cheeseburger spring rolls to start. The spring rolls were a dining treat for my friend and I especially with the spicy ketchup dipping sauce. I then had the steak sandwich. I highly recommend trying this dish. The steak was cooked perfectly and deliciously seasoned. The manager came over to our table to make sure that we enjoyed our meal. She was extremely chatty, polite and quite attractive. She really worked the room and engaged all customers as far as I could see. I highly recommend this place and will be telling all of my friends.
Say what you like about Delicatessen, but it's definitely the place you want to be seen in. Clientele is trendy, hip and high fashion--just about anyone walking through the door is famous. Gail Greene loved it in New York magazine and last week's New York Times review by Bruni was tongue in cheek, funny, and ultimately positive. Food is quirky--but you don't really go for the food--you go to see and be seen. It's eccentric, lively and very New York. Decor is cutting edge, menu is fun and it's always packed--go and enjoy the scene.

Don't know what the other reviewees are talking about. I had lunch there on Sat and although it was a bit crowded, I thought service was friendly and fast. Food was really good, better than average. II ordered the Ban Mi sandwich w/ fries and onion rings. My other guests had the burger and ruben. I actually like the open air vibe and I love that you can people watch and still be inside. Great location and view of Soho. I would definitely come back next time I'm in NY. I am however giving it a 4 star rating only, as Rachel Zoe and her husband walked in as we were leaving...
