This restaurant is convenient for celebrating the Jewish Holidays. A bit pricey, but the food is tasty, and there’s no muss or fuss to deal with. Service is great, and there are always leftovers to take home.

For a Jewish deli, there are no standout items. Portions are good, but are too salty. Having said all this, I can always find something I enjoy

Classic Jewish deli menu items that are very fresh and good. A huge bagel and dessert selection, and often VERY crowded on the weekends.

This is a great place for families even on holidays. The food is delicious, especially the matzo ball soup which has the largest matzo ball I have ever seen. The staff is very nice and the place is very "homey".
