I was stunned to find Sarge's on 3rd Avenue between 36th and 37th Streets on my last visit to New York. I first spent time at Sarge's in the late '70s/early '80s when I was a young woman, living at a nearby women's residence (on...More

Pretty good pastrami, but a tad on the pricey side. Clearly they added the tourist premium. Still a solid sandwich.

This place is open all the time. Great pastrami sandwich. Everything looked great there. Bang for your buck. Got to go here if you need a quick sandwich fix.

About as authentic as it gets, this is a classic NYC Deli/Diner. Went for a late breakfast with my wife and daughter and the food was great - pancakes, eggs and corned beef hash all exceptional.

We ordered delivery from Sarge's late one night. The service was great and so was the food . The cheesecake was really really good. I would recommend to others.

One of the few restaurants that we've returned to in NYC, because it's great. We got the smoked fish combo--delicious nova and sable. Bagels were great, too. Good coffee. Kathy was a friendly server. We plan on returning tomorrow for a normal breakfast and sandwiches...More

If you're a vegan, then a NYC deli is maybe not the best choice you could make, as your choices will be extremely limited. I agree with RonFG that the best people to give you an answer are the people who run the restaurant... More
