Since moving from NY to Florida I have not been able to find good black and white cookies. So as a treat I ordered from Russ and Daughters through Goldbelly. The delivery process was smooth but we were so dissapointed in the B&W's. The frosting,...which makes the cookie, literally had zero taste or flavor. Was literally like wax. We ended up throwing out over half the order they were not worth eating. We also ordered assorted Rhugelah which came to us stale. Never againMore

Short wait to get in , only allowed 5 people at a time.food is as good as always with very helpful staff to serve. Herring and their salty belly lox are still the best

Haven’t been back here since the pandemic but this place ranks high on the places to go again. Food is great and consistent and even the online gift baskets are top notch

The best bagels, lox and dry fruits! We will revisit again soon! We ordered a few different tasty bagels to go as well! This is a jewel deli!

Ordered some appetizers for Passover. Some were good, such as the horseradish. But the gefilte fish was a group thumb's down with comments such as "worst ever" and disgusting. It has a weird consistency -- like gelatin versus flakey. As bad as the stuff in...the jar is, you would be much better off with that than this stuff. Or get it from Meal Mart.More

I received $300 of food yesterday Through Goldbelly. The creme fraiche had expired 3/17/2021. The lakes are watery and tasteless. The bully's are average at best. I can't report how the rest of the order is because I haven't got to it yet. I will...never order from them again.More

This review if for the store. We have been going to this wonderful establishment for at least 30 years, the quality never varies. This was our first time since the virus hit and the only thing that has changed is that there is a three...person limit in the store at one time. My personal favorite is the Western Nova it is light, delicate, pure flavor, not a hint of grease. This is not cheap at 50 bucks a pound but it is worth every penny. This time I tried the New Zealand King Salmon and it is as good as the Western Nova but in a different way, its texture is finer and the smoky overtones are a bit stronger. So from now on I will be ordering at least half-a-pound of each they are equally good. Don't forget the cream cheese with scallions! After you have some of their Western Nova (or any of their others they are all superb) you will realize that what you have been eating as 'lox' was a pale imitation of this, the essence of lox. As their sign says "In Lox Veritas". They have an extensive selction of other items, to be sure, but the lox is why I go here. If you are living some distance away may I suggest that you take a cooler, buy what you want, and take it home with you. Enjoy!More

I ordered through Goldbelly for my husband’s birthday and everything arrived perfectly packaged on time and fresh. Everything has been delicious and it has been like a trip to NYC during COVID. Thanks Russ and Daughters.

DO NOT ORDER RUSS AND DAUGHTERS THRU GOLDBELLY!!!!! We received stale bagels and challah bread. Smoked Salmon was oily and smelled like rancid fish. We threw everything bout. Customer service at Goldbelly told me that there was nothing that they were willing to do about...it. I WILL NEVER USE GOLDBELLY AGAIN!!!!More
