Manhattans is what ever kosher deli/restaurant strives to be. All the cured meats are amazing but the piece de resistance is the Mish Mash chicken soup. It comes with matzah, noodles and a krepla made with brisket that is out of this world. I don't usually have room for desert after the meal but not to worry, the take out... More

I know people who swear by this restaurant/deli, but I am not one of them. For starters, the decor is ugly. The portions are generous, but there isn't a not of flavor. The last time I was there, I had a chef's salad. The dressing was watery and the cheese tasted like cheese product rather than real cheese

We ate here today and there are tons of choices. You could go and just make a fabulous meal of desserts. Most of our meals were delicious. Salads, waffles, and french toast that was very good. However, my son had the chocolate chip pancakes and there was some flavor really off. Some bites were fine and others left a horrific... More

Palm Springs, California has several Kosher style Deli's and I've ate at everyone of them. Each Deli had its own variation of menu items and consistancy was always the norm. Then most of those I liked started closing their doors. Then a new bakery/deli opens called Manhattan in the Desert! The food is always consistantly Fabulous. The portions are what... More

Went with friends for the early bird dinner. The prime rib was amazing. It came with soup or salad, fresh vegetables, choice of potato and rolls. Well worth it!

Food is always great. Big enough portions to take home for another meal. Hot corned beef on rye for my husband & hot turkey sandwich for me.

This restaurant was recommended by the locals, and it was great. There is enough food for two to share, kids lived it. We went twice while there for the month. Bring a sweater, it does get chilly. Food was great, and fast service. They do charge to split the dishes, so just ask for extra plates.

We enjoyed our lunch of soup and sandwiches. The service was fine, the atmosphere is comfortable and the prices are about what we expected. We will be back!

It feels like you are in Manhattan!!! You walk in and they have 3 cases of a grand variety of NY style desserts. Since my favorite is a good corn beef sandwich, that is what I had. It was to die for, just like I remember in the City. The service not like a real Manhattan diner, he forgot the... More
