Good sandwiches, coffee and breakfast. We went around 8:30 am on a weekday, just 3 more persons in the deli. Fast service.

I love Waterfront Deli! The food is of the highest quality and the flavors are exquisitely paired. This eclectic lunch place will not disappoint, and the decor is unique. Do yourself a favor and eat here as soon and as often as possible!

They have a great selection here, but it's not cheap. Lots of pre made salads and sandwiches. They do have made to order sandwiches and that's what I ordered. Corned beef on rye....I thought I couldn't go wrong. The sandwich was piled high with meat!...More

Great food at a reasonable price. The set up was kind of confusing as there was no signage on where to order, but the food was good and the staff was great! My food was ready in about 5 minutes

OMG What a great find. The food is excellent! Best tomato soup ever. The upstairs is beautifully painted. You food arrives via a whimsical gear driven conveyor . We were tempted to order more food just to watch it appear. LOL!

The name belies the fact that no water is visible from the restaurant. Overall, food was OK, but not exceptional in any way. Only standout item is the upstairs dumb waiter system. We won't go back.

This restaurant could be easily missed if it were not for the metal awning that sticks out over the side walk. During the work week it is an a amazing study in efficiency, which it needs to be. It's located less than a block from...More

I ordered the Chicken Cesar salad last week and while the dressing had great flavor, the chicken was tough as shoe leather. This was not a good experience.

Love the fact that every day has a listing of specials online. Great salads, soups and hot or cold sandwiches. Breakfast and lunch have consistently been wonderful. Really good multigrain bread as a choice for non-white bread eaters.
