We actually went to see Katz's deli but it was so busy and didn't seem so appealing once we got there we looked at the menu at Linas and popped in there instead. And we were so glad we did. We had the special brunch for $19.95 with three mimosas. All our food was so fresh and tasty. Service was... More

It is the worst restaurant I have ever been to anywhere in the world, and I have been to a lot of countries where customer service is not a priority. Chaotic and disorganazied. Took them 15 minutes to bring the drinks. After we ordered food they all disappeared and it seemed that waiting staff was spending most of their time... More
