“Bad experience”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

I am not a fussy eater and never ever have sent food back but my sandwich was not good. No one ever checked with me to make it right. It would seem this is hit or miss with this restaurant so beware. There was no management visible in the restaurant. They said it was ashame I did not enjoy my meal but did nothing about it.

“Oy Vey! A cool diner experience.”
Reviewed March 3, 2013 via mobile

Nice theme style diner with some great tunes from the live piano entertainment. The menu has loads of choices. The food was good, but not authentic kosher style cuisine. A great addition to the lineup of restaurants in the area. The service was excellent, but had a slow start at the very beginning. The cheesecake was absolutely stellar. Worth the visit.

“Fantastic New York Style Deli!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Took our 92 year old Aunt with us for lunch as she is originally from New York. She loved it!! As did we - fabulous, huge sandwiches with great ingredients and condiments. Especially loved the chopped liver and pastrami. Soup great too. Staff efficient and friendly, service good. New York theme throughout restaurant which is clean and bright. Been twice and will be going again...

“New York stars shine in St. Pete”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

Finding a place to get a sub sandwich is no problem in the St Pete area. Every corner and even gas station will sell you a tube of bread with a slice of meat. But try to find a real deli sandwich and you would discover the Fountain of Youth first. That was until Simply Delicious opened. The exterior plays tribute to The City that doesn't sleep, with even a clothesline full of laundry over the parking lot. Inside is filled with Broadway Playbills and NYC photos. A New York TV station plays news from the city. The food is the star here. Looking for a skyscraper sandwich? Mounds of corn beef or pastrami are piled high on tasty homemade bread. Need a bowl of Nana's chicken soup? There's is way better, filled with chicken and veggies. The unique corned beef egg rolls with Russian dressing is an awesome appetizer or lunch. The in-house roasted turkey is moist, even without gravy. The turkey BLT is brimming with bacon. Try it with the onion straws. Whether you order the beef brisket or fried fish, you won't go away hungry. Try to leave room for their house made desserts, pumpkin cheesecake - peanut butter cake, chocolate sin cake, nutty squirrel pie, are all wonderful. The addition of a piano bar makes your dining experience festive. You also can join in with a few bars of 'New York, New York.' A great trip to the city without leaving sunny St. Pete.

“Great food!”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

The food was great and the portions were very large for the price. Even had to take 1/2 my meal home. It's a neat diner :)
