Editorial fromWith virtually every item on the menu named for a celebrity, from the Martha Stewart Chef Salad to the Pete Sampras Sliced Steak, the Carnegie's archrival has no qualms about bidding for the tourist dollar. But that doesn't stop locals…

Carnegie's Queue too long?!!.... – As the queue for Carnegie's Deli refused to diminish over the course of a couple of hours, we headed walking downtown and came across Stage's Deli. A short queue, and we were seated. I ordered a huge sandwich named after some actor who apparently selected the ingredients personally! Sandwich was great, and the place had a good vibe about it. It was bustling with character. We were a little cramed on our table, and my girlfriend's burger wasn't that exciting, but I enjoyed the experience. Se... read more
Bad to worse – Thought I would give this place another chance after a VERY mediocre (I'm being generous) first go...but the service and food left a lot to be desired. Prices were incredibly inflated for such low quality curing. Take your hunger and money elsewhere!
Appalling – I regret having patronized this place. $50 for a mediocre lunch with the added pleasure of being treated more rudely than I have ever been treated in my entire life. Apparently, some people think that it's "charming" and "so New York" to get treated so rudely, but it's NOT. When you're paying good money, you should be receiving good food and good service. The pastrami was mostly fat, and the chicken soup was a brine with a few floating pieces of raw, pink chicken.
huge portions, great food – Stage Deli serves monster sandwiches, but to be honest, so do most NYC delis. Plus, you do pay the price for the sandwiches (expect to take home leftovers). Nevertheless, I really did enjoy the corn beef/pastrami sandwich. The mish mash soup is excellent though I don't like how they charge extra for sharing, though again that is common with other NYC delis as well. Service was friendly and courteous. There was a crazy lady in the restroom, but hey, it's New York! The only true negative is the cram... read more
Horrible! – It's the worst breakfast I have ever had! The food was inferior and they have the decency to charge you $12 for eggs and sausage that are not remotely close to being good. For that amount, they still charge you $2.50 for a cup of coffee. The sausage even tasted old. Don't ever go there for breakfast.
You can't finish these sandwiches – You won't leave here hungry, the sandwiches are so high you can't put them in your mouth & we love the homestyle chicken soup (the mish mash could feed a family of four)--don't be fooled, you do pay for the lavish amounts of food you get, but the experience is worth the trip.
Overrated!!! – I usually visit Stage Deli when I visit NYC but I won't go there ever because during my last viist we were very rudely treated by the managers, the food quality was poor (watery perogi, frozen stuffed cabbage) and the tab prices $45 was rediculous. The managers rudely tell people they have to wait outside. They shifted us to the counter and then shifted us again because "we were in the way". What a joke. Walk to 8 th avenue and get better food for half the price.
Piled high – Every visit to NY must have a deli on the food list. Whether you like corned beef or pastrami you must stop by and see Norman. He has been there for decades and can still tell what you would like before you order it. Try the special sandwiches but be prepared for more than you can eat at one sitting. I like to take the second half back to my hotel and let it stink up the room to remind me that NY delis are still the best in the world.
Big sandwiches, bigger prices – It's a New York gem. It does have its problems: rude service, high prices, long waits, but you still gotta try it! The motza ball soup is incredible along with their cheesecake which a slice of is big enough to serve six people.
