The server was fabulous but you'll be having cheap food at expensive prices. Move along! Don't go here. Coffee served must be dish water!

Worth a visit for pancakes or French toast if it's your first visit to NYC and you're staying close to Times Square! Otherwise not worth travelling for as there's plenty of other amazing options for a lot less money!

Food was tasty but too expensive for what it was. The waiting staff were friendly and very generous, we got two free broths and a slice of cheesecake on the house.

Reuben served without Russian dressing and very little sauerkraut cost $22 for an average (at best) sandwich. At least Carnegie deli back in the day gave you a sandwich that looked like a little skyscraper. The cheesecake here is not as good as Junior's.

The cheesecake is good here, not as good as Juniors, but still, good. The service is very friendly and welcoming. They never charge fully for their drinks and service is prompt.

An average place. Like all NYC spots pricey for what you get. The triple decker sandwich was smaller compared to other delis and priced differently. The cheesecake was very good. Service was fair, kitchen hustling and busboys moving all over. Again it was just average.

I ordered the carrot cake thinking it was a cheese cake flavored carrot cake. It was not. It really was not the best carrot cake and very over priced for a diner cake. Little on the stale side.

We visited Lindy's after a show on Broadway as it was on the way back to our hotel. It was quiet when we arrived but many people did the same as us and the place soon filled up. I had a chicken sandwich and my...More

This is the iconic New York that so many visitors
imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like
the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building,
iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal
and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop
hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is
