Desperately seeking a quick bite next to the St. James 20 minutes before a show and SO glad it was next door. Clearly everyone else had the same idea and it's no wonder. The veggie wrap with eggplant and mozzarella was unimaginably delicious. They had dinners and sandwiches quickly prepared. No long wait but no tables. There's a ledge by... More

We stay at the Marriott and come here everyday for lunch to bring back to our tradeshow. Fresh deli samdwiches are only $6.50 with lettuce and tomato and a pickle. They have hot food and soups as well. Service fast. Been here over 20 times and always satisfied with great prices.

The singing waiters are a wonderfu experience, and some of the Broadway wannabees are even talented. The food is less slo, not up to nyc standards

Were staying in Times Square. Kids wanted donuts, we wanted bagels. Delivered good quality on both. Service was friendly even though they were busy.

This is not the place where waiters sing and there are no tables to eat in. I think many people as mentioned are confusing this place with stardust diner. Starlite deli is a small yet great quality deli frequented by lots of new yorkers. I had the honey moon sandwich (corned beef and pastrami) and my mum had a tuna... More

This is a really fun place. The staff sings and performs while serving the meals. The food is well prepared home cooking of good quality. Service is lightning quick and the prices are reasonable. So if you are looking for some entertainment and a quick bite - this is a really great place to check out!

Staying at the nearby Marriott Marquis, we didn't have time for a sit-down meal before our show on our first night in New York. We picked up sandwiches at the Starlight Deli. My Reuben had so little sauerkraut that I was half finished before I was convinced there was any. It just wasn't very flavorful. The meat was OK but... More

Color can kill an appetite. Green and Yellow lighting flashing or cycyling every minute or two can render your food inedible! My gravy was sick looking and the salad dressing was gray! It was a mess. The singers were great and if they dialed back the karaoke reverb we could have heard them better. We didn't finish our meals and... More

stopped in before leaving NY for sandwiches to go for my son and I. Corned beef was tough, fatty and nasty. Couldn't chew it, it was so tough. Try another place if you want Corned Beef!

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood 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 paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit 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.
