I ate a half sandwich with a soup combo. But before they offered a coleslaw salad. All very tasty, but a lot of food, go when you is starved and enjoy.

As ardent supporters of Sarge’s for years now including holiday meals, our brunch this morning was a continued example of Sarge’s decline - slow, but definite decline. Service was non-existent until chased down and even then was largely non- responsive. What a change from a...More

Sarge's Delicatessen Restaurant is one of New York's most favorite Quintessential Jewish Style delicatessen restaurants open seven days a week all year round. Celebrating our 52nd year, our reputation has been built on serving great homemade food, generous portions and a relaxing atmosphere. We are the true New York deli experience, the number one place for so many old world specialties. To many to mention, like our in-house cured corned beef and pastrami, homemade matzoh ball soup, cheese cakes etc. We have over 200 items on our vast menu, suitable for any type of palate. Choose from Steaks, Chops or Broiled Salmon to fabulous Salad's, Sandwiches and Burgers. We have food for the entire family. Not to mention Top shelf Liquor, some of the best deserts in New York, coffee and cappuccinos !!!! . Serving every kind of customer, Sarge's always hits the spot. With a rich history preserved in its old world decor- classic diner booths, real Tiffany's stained glass lamps, and of course the iconic wall of celebrity photos, Sarge's is the destination for the real-deal New York meal!!! Many of our guests have told us we are " New York's Best Kept Secret"
