Such an unpleasant experience. We were approached by an older man in grungy clothes who I guess was the host. He had a dirty grey sweatshirt on. Still not sure what his roll is. The menus were dirty and clearly hadn’t been wiped down. Bathroom...was cluttered and in need of a good cleaning. When we made a request to be more comfortable they had no interest in even attempting to fulfill it. The male owner or manager was incredibly rude with no customer service skills. He was offensive. I often make restaurant suggestions and eat out at casual and fun restaurants routinely. This was awful and I will never return.More

I came here with a friend for the first time. We sat outside. It took quite awhile to be waited on. My pastrami sandwhich came out cold and had to be sent back. The knish was hot and was very good. The sandwhich was big...but it was just OK. We had to ask for pickles and mustard. Overall. it was a bit disappointing. I would like to give this place another chance.More

This is a good deli with a friendly staff. Easy to order ahead and just pick-up the food. Good food and food is ready when they say.

For many years, this has been the go-to place in the DMV for anyone who wants authentic NY-style deli. Fabulous sandwiches, especially corned beef. Creative, tasty omelets. And so much more, including service, selection, and atmosphere. Even during Covid! If you need catering, they're terrific,...too. The only thing missing - that I DON'T miss: waitstaff with attitude. ;-) But if you want delicious, authentic deli - and more - you shouldn't miss Brookluyn's Deli.More

I used Brooklyn's Deli's online ordering option and paid for the items and was given a specific time to pick up the food. When I went to pick up the food the Deli was CLOSED! The next day I contacted the Manager to request a...refund and the manager informed me that it wasn't their responsibility and I would have to contact the company that they use to take their online orders. After I complained that it was their responsibility the MANAGER HUNG UP ON ME! This is no way to treat a customer.More

Complete menu, good service, and excellent food. I like the chicken soup and Charles' low carb scoopers. The sandwiches are really good; however, the prices are a bit high.

Roast beef with coleslaw and Russian dressing was ordinary and not tasty. The coleslaw was meh. Also, the sandwiches are expensive, like $15 per!

I met a friend for a delightful breakfast and long conversation. We arrived at 8:00am, and within a couple of minutes we were enjoying our first cup of coffee in a booth. The dining room is decorated like a New York Deli restaurant, but the...high ceilings help keep down the noise level. Very pleasant. My friend ordered an omelet with spinach, ham, and mushrooms. I ordered the Bob Milloy Omellete (sauteed onions, sweet peppers, tomatoes & muenster cheese). Both were excellent. Our server kept our cup filled, but otherwise gave us plenty of time to catch up. She was efficient, friendly, and could read her customers perfectly. All in all, it was a great breakfast.More

We needed a place to eat before going to the Great Falls Tavern Visitor Center, and we were lucky to find this place. The corned beef sandwich was everything advertised — huge, tender, well flavored — and the fresh rye bread was outstanding. My wife’s...chicken salad on a bagel was also great, and our son enjoyed the blueberry pancake and sausage. Staff was very friendly, and everything was served extremely fast. Would highly recommend.More

Meeting up with a friend for lunch and looking for a place to grab a sandwich and catch up. Brooklyn's Deli provided the perfect spot. The sandwiches were cram full of lean tender meat. My friend got the pastrami and I the roast beef. I...ordered mine the "half" size and I was surprised with the amount of meat it still had piled on. The rye bread was fresh and the cole slaw was a delicious side. Did I mention fresh deli style pickles were always served a a complementary side, crunchy and flavorful. They also serve breakfast all day and the dishes we saw being served looked yummy and plentiful. Waitress was friendly and did not try to rush us out in spite of the restaurant being quiet full. If looking for true deli stle sandwiches, this is the place. All in all it is a place I would visit again when in the area.More

I like to go to Brooklyn's on Sunday mornings, even though there may be a short wait if it is late morning. Brooklyn's chicken soup and matzo ball soup are outstanding. The corned beef is first rate. Servers always take custom requests cheerfully. IMO, Brooklyn's...is hard to beat in the region for a Kosher-style deli.More

Popped in after tennis at a nearby country club. Service was quick and friendly. Corned beef was good. Huge sandwich. Thought I would take some home but too good. Ate it all!
