We’ve been going to Sarge’s for many years, and it never disappoints! The food is great and the portions are huge. They have holiday meals for Passover (it’s kosher style, not kosher), Rosh Hashanah and Thanksgiving that are awesome. It may be a bit out...More

We always enjoy Sarge's omelettes and salad platters for breakfast. Portions are generous, prices are fair, and we haven't enjoyed breakfasts in NYC better than we do at Sarge's. Booths are spacious for Manhattan and service is friendly and efficient.

With all the deli’s in NY it is hard to stand out. Being a Katz and Bloom deli customers,I tried something new. Sarge’s is one of the best. The pastrami and corn beef melt like butter. Never had better! Matzo ball soup was also excellent....More

We had a late lunch at Sarge's, and it was a very good experience. I highly recommend the pastrami and corned beef. The meat was so tender you almost had to eat it with a spoon. Delicious! The cheesesteak, although good, was not the best...More

Type NY style Deli, I think its open 24 hours. Usual selection of typical deli fare. The pastrami was excellent

If you're a vegan, then a NYC deli is maybe not the best choice you could make, as your choices will be extremely limited. I agree with RonFG that the best people to give you an answer are the people who run the restaurant... More
