Having had an evening around Central Park West we decided to try out Carnegie Deli. Arrived at 2300 to find them closing up shop! This, when they say they are open until midnight. I asked the staff, told be told abruptly 'We are closed, get out!' I asked why they were closed so early, their response being 'Its wet so... More

You will not be disappointed if you eat at Carnegies. The pastrami sandwich feeds two people. Absolutely delicious. It is impossible not to order one of the beautiful desserts. We ordered the chocolate Hershey's pie. Best pie EVER. Be prepared to wait for a table. They also offer take-out.

Well, we looked at it the whole time we were in New York...my husband kept seeing all the different lines outside of the door, but we never got a chance to get in, to sit down...never mind, because I had a plan... we were leaving New York that afternoon on Sunday, and I asked my husband to go right before...

I visited this place since it was listed as of the best places to get pastrami in NYC. Given the time I arrived (around 6.30pm) I had to queue for nearly two hours since the resturant hasn't got that many seats. However, it was worth the waiting. I ordered the plain pastrami sandwich and it was delicious: tasty with really... More

(I suppose some people... More

I also heard this place was closing and, although I knew that the food here wasn’t always so great, I wanted my family to go here and experience the place before it did. We waited in line for an hour and, although we enjoyed being there, the food was even worse than I remembered. But… you do get an awful... More

I've reviewed the Carnegie several times before and wanted to review it just one last time before it closes in 35 days. It is one of my reasons for visiting NYC. My kids look forward to Pastrami and Corned Beef like no other on earth. There is a line out the door and down the street from before opening to... More

On my fourth visit to the city I decided I needed to give the Deli a go as it will be closing permanently at the end of 2016.. We went for breakfast as we are not fans of a long line just to have food.. we were at the Deli by 7:45 to discover it didn't actually open until 8... More

My wife and I went here while on vacation. We waited in line for about 60 minutes to be seated. It was worth the wait. We has sandwiches and they were excellent by any measure. It was a worth while experience that I would recommend to anyone.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
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 a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
