    Really good food! Coming here for a holiday dinner was a lot better than I expected. Gets very crowded so be sure to make a reservation. Their matzoh ball soup is amazing!

    Get the matzo ball soup and share one hot pastrami sandwich (not the monster unless you’re up for a challenge). We also tried the cabbage rolls here. They were ok.

    My first time eating shrimp salad. It was fresh, crispy, and creamy. All on a toasted everything bagel. Washed it down with a slice of carrot cake. Simply Amazing! Great and friendly staff. Love this

    Pastrami on par with Katz's, with far fewer tourists. Sit-down is not as family-brunch-oriented as nearby 2nd Ave Deli, as Sarge's is more about Murray Hill's young adults - 24 hrs and huge portions.

    Try the Souper Soup. "Sitting in the heady chicken broth, which demands no salt, are a hearty beef kreplach, noodles and a gigantic matzoh ball that straddles the line between floater and sinker." Read more

    Quite possibly my favorite deli in NY. I grew up on their pastrami and corned beef on Sundays. Can't go wrong with anything from Sarges.

    Looooove the smoked whitefish and smoked salmon salads! 1/4 lb of each + some butter club crackers is really all the lunch I need!

    The half sandwich and "cup" of soup special is fantastic, but it leaves me wondering just how humongous a "bowl" of soup must be.

    Take the mixed sandwich no. 3. If you're a european and not used to the american portion size, take one to share with a friend. It will fill you, I promise!

    Love that matzoh ball soup. Love that this place appears to be a kosher deli but it totally serves whatever they want

    Best corned beef and pastrami in NYC. Open 24/7 which is incredible. They never close which is even better.

    The pastrami (order it "fatty") is amazing, as is the matzo ball soup. Watch out for dirty forks and plates. Service was barely adequate, though stereotypical for a NY deli.

    Just as good, if not better than the other big name delis in NYC. Go for lunch for more bang for your buck

    Portion sizes are humongous. Could easily share between 2. Solid beef hash.

    Try the The Cookout Burger - Smokey BBQ sauce, cheddar cheese, bacon, sautéed mushrooms and onions. Served with lettuce, tomato, and Bermuda onion.

    The corned beef can't measure up. It finds the meaning of its life not in a sandwich, but in the corned beef hash-slivers of salty meat fried crisp that overpower the smidgens of potato. Read more

    Best pastrami in NYC, yes better than Katz's! Love the old school vibe & cranky waitresses.

    One of our favorite spots to get a good pastrami on rye. Don't sleep on the corned beef though, it's mouthwateringly good.

    I don't even like pastrami and I'm in love with their pastrami & corned beef sandwich with russian dressing :) skip the matzo ball soup and the cheesecake though

    A dying breed. Get the half sandwich (pastrami) half soup (matzah ball). You will be stuffed.

    Feeling ill? Have the super soup with extra noodles. You won’t regret it. It’s my hangover helper and kicks a cold fast.

    Home of The Monster – just try and finish a $30 Pastrami sandwich on your own. Stop by 24 hours a day and explore the vast menu.

    Sandwiches here are pricy but very good and very large. I wish they sliced the meat thicker though.

    They're back! And my new job is only 3 blocks away...that's either very good or very bad! Still my favorite pastrami in NYC, no contest!

    They don't mess around at Sarge's. HUGE portions. Bowl sized coffee cups. Huge lunch plates (nothing junior about the junior ruben). The $30 Monster sandwich is...a monster.

    The sandwiches are pricey, but enormous, bring a big appetite or prepare to take home a doggy bag.

    It's true, the pastrami here is as good as Katz's. The only disappointment really was the cole slaw but that's not why you're here.
