There is a reason why this basement restaurant from outside to inside is covered with more pictures of happy smiling, singing and dancing patrons than Katz deli has stars on its walls. Everyone usually starts with chopped liver which is made at the table. The chopped liver added with gribenes, onions and radish all combined with Schmaltz or otherwise known as chicken fat. For those who are not adventurous by heart, vegans, vegetarians, gluten intolerant, this would not be the place to go with its meat eccentric meals. But for us carnivores, it is a delight. We ordered the mixed grill for two which can really feed 4, potato pancakes, stuffed cabbage and grilled salmon steak and several rounds of frozen vodka. All the meat was good but the steak was on the chewier side. The entertainment a soul singer with keyboard had the restaurant pretty much singing along or maybe it was all the alcohol? To round off the end of the meal; at the tablet a chocolate spritzer made. I'm not sure if this worked well with all the vodka but drink! Between the chopped liver pate and stuffed cabbage and a rounds of frozen vodka, it is all most certain you will be exclaiming ... L'chai-im, l'chai-im, to life! Next day a stomach ache, Drink! L'chai-im, to life by the end of the night.

No place else like it on the planet! Chicken livers are delish! So is the Romanian Tenderloin. Danny Luv is a riot! Do not miss the opportunity to enjoy this truly unique New York experience.

Simply delicious. The steak here is excellent. This is a Jewish establishment. The service is excellent. The servers are great they suggest dishes based on your mood and what you feel like drinking. They're spot on. That frozen vodka is the truth. It comes to the table in a block of ice. That's definitely different. I definitely would like to go back and eat here again

Went here for 30th birthday meal with a group of friends. Absolutely brilliant, such a fun place. The chopped liver and onions to start is delicious, the entertainment is hilarious and the vodka...oh dear. If you want a raucous, fun, crazy, completely out of tbe ordinary night out with a group of friends then try this out. Maybe not the best for a romantic meal for two...

Absolutely the best steak house and Jewish Roots place in America.... Me, my dad and grandfather the late Jerry and Victor Frost have been going there since 1960 ( it used to be call The parkway in the early 1960's) This place is totally representative of the lower east side Jewish ghetto... The food is magnificent.... great steaks and chopped liver and egg creams... great bread.. great knish,,,, great kreplach... roots and more roots.... the place is pricey and it is a good value. very worthwhile for the total experience.. definitely a must see spot for those interested in New York Jewish culture and food...

Like visiting a Jewish function catered by older Jewish family members, it is more than a meal, it is an experience. If it's from your background, it'll be like coming home. If it's not, it is an experience like no other.
