I love this place! The food is always yummy and the service is great. The only downfall, sometimes you have to wait for a table.

A deli of massive proportions. This restaurant/deli serves a fantastic breakfast menu of creative omelets, French toast, waffles with Nutella and so much more. In addition, as soon as one enters, he is greeted by a dessert case, filled with black and white cookies, cheese cake, and more pastries than imaginable. The food is well priced, the service is great... More

I just went for the dessert. Which was very good. I got the black and white, it's huge. You need to people to eat that thing. They have a very large selection of desserts and quite a few varieties of cake and cheesecake. The service was good as well, not exceptionally so, but better than average.

I have eaten a few times in the past 4 years at these Manhattan Deli's ( Palm Desert, Palm Springs, and Temecula ? when it was still open a few years ago ). These restaurants would sometimes fix my craving for some back East deli items, but my last visit to the Palm Springs location was not very satisfying at... More

... One of the two great NY style delis in Palm Springs. Manhattan is a little south of downtown in a nice comfortable building. All the sandwiches are piled high with meats and the prices are typical of a good deli. Huge variety of meats and combos. Ask to be seated in the back in the raised area.... it is... More

Excellent food, large portions and great service. Moderately priced. They have dinner specials you should check out. There is a bakery up front with a wide assortment of pastries and desserts. Tip--ask for pickles, they are a free condiment and a real treat.

This is a New York style deli with a voluminous menu. I find the food to be just OK. My husband seems to like the food better than I do. The service is somewhat sporadic and there is an attitude of everyone there doing you a favor in serving you. They are usually crowded and there can be a wait... More

Visiting Palm Springs, CA, for a week. Went to Manhattan in the Desert. Marriott had recommended it to us. Went for the early bird (4-6pm) $ 11.99 for complete dinner. One person had the country fried steak with the white gravy, mashed potatoes, zucchini vegetables and to start it off a large garden salad. Another had a Caesar salad, corned... More
