This place is such a great place to eat in and enjoy your free time. This place is such a wonderful place, my wife and I will be definitely be back here again and again.
Fabulous mac & cheese. My hubby and I ate at Lansky's two days ago. Service was top notch, our waitress pleasant. Luvvvv the mac&cheese, my husband and I split a small dish of it since I had ordered the corned beef and cabbage which was just loaded with corned beef, for me, the cabbage could have been cooked longer. My husbands sandwich was so huge he could only eat half of it. Also I found their cole slaw sooo good. Unfortunately, no room left for dessert. I wouldn't hesitate to go back again.
Food inspection rating: "B" Management: F..
Check out the "B" rating from NYC - take a look at how many infractions that is!!
The food and prices are decent, but the place is run like a Times Square chain.
Rude, and seemingly inexperienced management have no idea how to organize a well-run restaurant, let alone treat their customers like customers.
Simply the Best. Take it from a real "Jewish" princess, this is the best deli in New York. I know what your going to say......and the usual suspects....forget about it. Their matzoh ball soup has NO RIVALS. The pastrami was just as good as Katz's, and at 25% cheaper. The french fries are to die for. And if you have room at the end, the cheesecake is the best. The prices so reasonable, and don't miss the lady in the front taking to go orders, she right out of central casting!!!!
A new but old-fashioned Jewish deli on the Upper West Side.. There may be fewer classic New York delis every year, but the model isn't dead yet, at least if Lansky's has any say. A modern restaurant with an old soul, the place is slavishly dedicated to recreating the traditional flavors: piquant, moist pastrami on rye, big hot dogs, briny corned beef, chicken soup with matzo balls and even a whole Reuben menu. The place looks right, too, with tin ceilings, depression-era stained glass and an open kitchen where you can see your sandwich being sliced. Will it make anyone forget Katz's or the Carnegie Deli? Probably not. But so what? That's like saying that only Washington or Lincoln should be president.
I had dinner there this past weekend.....service, food and decor was great. Everything on the menu that my group tried was delicious. I especially enjoyed the dessert (my group had an animated argument over which dessert was the yummiest....they are all great but I particularly enjoyed the bread pudding).
The wait staff is charming, and the restaurant has been tastefully designed to exude an old world charm. I look forward to returning soon with my husband!
Best Deli In new York. I think that years ago the famed deli's in New York were great, but I also think that for the most part that they rest on their laurels. Well they better watch out because Lansky's has arrived on the scene, and this place in a few short months has surpassed the food in all the rest. I found the sandwiches to be oversized, juicy and delicious. Where Lansky's far surpasses the rest is with the food from the kitchen. The burger is the best in New York, and at under 6 buck, best bargin. The matzoh ball soup is great, thick with noodles, vegetables, chicken meat and two light, fluffy matzoh ball. The do a hot dog like no other, it is a foot long and deep fried. They offer it with a large variety of toppings, I tried jalapeno, chili, and cheddar, delicious and not for the faint of heart. I just love their macaroni and cheese, creamy and full of real cheese flavor. Save room for dessert, banana pudding is to die for. Last but not least, they actually have a really nice selection of wines by the glass, and unlike other deli's, the wines are really good and very fairly priced. Love Lansky's.
Its Cold Outside...And I found the Best Soup in Town!!!.
Its 16 degrees outside, and I am in serious need of hot soup to warm my bones. I headed over to Lansky's, a new "Jewish" style deli and picked up a quart of theri "Jewish penicilin", their matzoh ball soup is the best soup in the city, with no peers. It is thick with noodles, vegetables, chicken mear ( yes I said real chiciken meat!) and two large matzho ball. This soup really wamrs the heart, and the tummy too.
Everything I have tried here is great. The brunch has become the best on the Upper West Side. The burgers are as good as any in the city.
the best unsung dessert on the menu is the banana pudding, scrumptious!!!!
This place is warm and welcoming, and the prices are the best in the city, come to Lansky's....its like coming home.
UWS gem-place is great-had to say it!.
I'm embarrased to say, I go there 3-4 times a week. I had to write a review, my 1st ever-they are that good
The sandwiches are huge-juicy and cheap. You can make 2 sandwiches from one sandwich-ask for extra bread, they don't care if you share.
The burgers and hot dogs-their standouts. Again huge-10 oz burgers and foot long dogs-you have to get them both with cheese and pastrami bits (genius idea)
But I have to say, the shining star of the menu are the specials. The chicken potpie, meatloaf, short ribs, and chicken inapot are really really great.
The banana pudding, matzo crunch sundae and cheesecake standout as far as dessert goes-again-huge.
What makes this place my fave, combined with the great food, and location, is the attentive service. Everyone, host, manager, server, busboy, asked me how my meal is. Got me more coleslaw, napkins, water was always full...whatever I needed!
I hope they make it in this economy-really spectacular!
The Devil Dog!!!!.
Love this place for many reasons; best matzoh ball soup in the city, great burger, but I had a dish the past evening they call a "Devil Dog". This a foot long hot dog that is deepfried. They offer many different toppings, i had it with sauteed jalapenos, chili and cheddar, wow!! This is sinful and delicious.
If you have room, try the strawberry cheesecake, finish with a cup of coffee, it is like going to heaven.
