    The food is was outstanding. We were warned by the host that service might be slow because we were outside, but it wasn’t. The pasta faziole soup was delish with my salad with tuna. My husband got a triple decker tuna club and he ate half at lunch and half at dinner!

    Haven't been there in a while, it was not crowded at all, I think when we left there was only one other table with people, Our Waiter was super sweet, and very helpful. Service was great. We usually get the platters for 4, that is 4 meats, bread, salads soup and dessert. The price was much higher, but then again everything is higher these days. (Use to pay like $15 a person, now it is $22 pp) But still worth it, I guess. I did not like the fact they took knishes off the menu., I love them and was kinda bumed they took them off.

    We have been to Lucky Dill over 20x and have had a great food and service experience every time. So my boyfriend wanted to go for his birthday, I made a reservation. When we arrived we were ushered passed the bar to a side wing of the restaurant. I had never been over this of the restaurant and I will not sit there again. All the chairs were metal and not comfortable and very low making it hard for me to comfortably eat my food. Our waiter was handling the other tables around us. It took about 15 minutes to get drinks and then he took off without asking if we wanted an appetizer. I don’t know if he had tables elsewhere but he was gone for about 10 mins and then came back helped other tables and after 15 mins came back for our order. Throughout the service, we needed napkins, more drinks and we couldn’t get his attention. I am not sure if he was hard of hearing, had worked 24hrs straight with no sleep or just oblivious but the service was terrible, I was so disappointed. I gave a 20% tip because who knows what is going on in the waiters life but it didn’t deserve 1 more penny of my money. My daughter got the kid’s spaghetti and chicken- it was cold and barely any sauce and chunks of tomatoes. I told her it’s a deli, this dish isn’t their forte and she barely ate any, least she was happy with her garlic bread. We won’t be back for a while, if we do go back again.

    Waitress fine. Food mostly inedible. MANY items now unavailable...knishes, Dr. Brown sodas, bread that was soggy, sandwiches likely microwaved, no onion rolls, etc. How dare you call that expensive drink an egg cream. After many years of visiting this restaurant and its a drive of over an hour. We won't be back.

    The service was terribly slow. We had to ask for bread and drink refills. One of the meals had plastic in it, which they remade. It tasted like freezer burned. The corned beef was dry. We used to love coming here, but it seems to have gone downhill. I had been eating there since the original location at Alderman & 19. We were told that there is new owners. I hope this was just and off night, as the food used to be amazing.

    Made a reservation for lunch and I’m glad I did because the restaurant gets very busy at lunch. We were promptly seated and had a very attentive waitress. The food seemed to be taking a long time and our waitress explained she thought she sent the order in electronically but she admitted she accidentally cancelled it. She reordered the food and it was brought out without delay. The waitress didn’t charge us for our drinks and she gave us all a piece of cheese cake “on the house” for her mistake. That act of kindness was not needed but it was appreciated by us.

    Ordered the corned beef sliders and fries at $17. Was shocked to realize the corned beef was absolutely bland---that's right BLAND!!!! How can you serve corned beef that has no flavor and say you are just like a New York deli--I worked in NYC for 8+ years and can tell you unequivocally, these sliders would never hit a table in the "Big Apple"!!!

    We have been dining at Lucky Dill for 20 years but this was a first time in a year that we had gone back. The waitress/bartender was new, so she struggled to answer menu questions. She was very friendly and attentive. My wife order no onions on her sandwich but it came with onions. We brought it back and corrected. Took about 10 minutes. Someone in my party asked if bread still came with the meal, the waitress said it was by request so we requested it. Lucky Dill had always offered a free slice of cheesecake with each meal. When she asked if we wanted dessert, we asked if the free cheesecake still came with the meal. She again said, it was by request. So the. 4 of all requested free cheesecake. We were told that Lucky Dill had new owners and they had been running out of bread and cheesecake so it all came by having to ask. While the menu is still a good size, the all day breakfast and prime rib are no longer available. The meal was good, the waitress was pleasant and did her best but overall comparing it to past visits it was a little disappointing. Here’s hoping that the new owners don’t buy them out of business.

    Lucky Dill Deli has always drawn a local crowd and their food is quite delicious; however, it seems they have made a few changes recently. Our server, Phillip, was awesome...so patient with our large party and very thorough. The kitchen was quite slow and definitely not as thorough as our server. It took about an hour to get our food and, even then, the sandwiches that were supposed to be served hot were served cold.

    We like this restaurant but can see a decline. Numerous items we ordered were not available and multiple items on menu crossed off with magic marker. Our server Rob was good and did his best to accommodate our table of eight. Overall food was good and hopefully they get back on track.

    After going to Lucky Dill for Thanksgiving dinner for the last 6 years and loving it, we will not be going back again. This year the food was off. We were not allowed any to go boxes, which having 2 children under 10 was unacceptable. The bill was around $150 for 2 adults and 2 children... and no to go box. Rolls were hard, dinner was luke warm and less than acceptable... beans were mushy, stuffing was terrible, and no dark meat with the turkey. After going to this restaurant for over 30 years and it being one of our favorites, We WILL NOT BE GOING BACK.

    Food was great. Gratuities should be included in the price. I saw people with a big family leaving NO tip. Come on! The waiters worked their but off and deserve a tip. Christmas day! Small to go boxes should be provided on the initial plate. Charge 1$ or2 if you must but grandma and children should have a box. Much food was wasted I saw. Otherwise the food is always good and the service outstanding. Dessert to die for!!!

    Can’t say enough great things about Natasha and how pleasant and attentive she was to our table of 10! The food was delicious and well seasoned. The dinner portions are large. The dessert bar buffet was a sight to see, delicious and something for everyone! Would definitely recommend Lucky Dill as a great option if you are looking for a sit down Thanksgiving dinner vs going somewhere with a buffet.

    This was probably the fifth or sixth Thanksgiving. I’ve had at lucky dill. Pre-Covid and Post Covid. In the beginning they always had the dessert bar and you got a very nice appetizer little plate with cheese olives, etc. and of course you were able to get seconds but you still can do and if you needed it they give you a to go box after Covid. The dessert bar was taken away and you got a dessert on your table which was fine. was very happy this year to see the dessert bar was back that was a plus but there was no pre-dinner appetizer as previous we had a previous years and there were no to go boxes. I am not a big eater I did not even finish all my turkey stuffing, etc. on the first plate it seems to me I should’ve been allowed. I took a box to bring home the rest of my dinner. I did not ask for second a little disappointed that they’ve done away with the appetizer and the to go box, especially for people or not big eaters and can’t finish their dinner. I think we’re going to start looking for may be a different alternative for Thanksgiving dinner next year.

    Went for Thanksgiving Dinner. Food was very cold. Not warm. Cold! Mashed potatoes were like they came directly out of fridge! They charged me $20 for a 1 1/2 year old. Was definitely not worth $41 a person. Was a regular customer. Probably no longer. Ruined our holiday. 9 of us.

    After top-shelf dining at Lucky Dill for several years, our “luck” came to a halt. First, the food: we ordered a pink wine but got dark red; we ordered mixed turkey but got only white; we ordered a hot meal but the meal we got was lukewarm. Overall, the meal was delicious, with ample portions. The desserts were okay but would have liked some signature cheesecakes. Our meals were flukes. We have eaten at Lucky Dill too many time to think this meal was the norm. It wasn’t! We will eat again at the Lucky Dill as most times, it is outstanding. Wish we could have said some words. Perhaps because “service” was terrible. Service was very poor because of errors or lack of attention. Took 15 minutes for server to notice we were finished with our meals. F

    Heard it had changed owners and was now horrible. Glad I did not listen. Still the best traditional Thanksgiving Day meal around. Been going for years. Our only 2 complaints are that you could not box up food you did not eat. I only had a bit of potatoes left I wanted to take home but was not allowed to do so. The serving size is one of the best parts, but I ate way more than I should have just because I did not want to waste it. I have a medical condition that only allows me to eat tiny servings at a time. I paid for my meal, so was confused as to why I could not take my leftovers home. It usually feels so festive. It really feels like being home for Thanksgiving. We missed the outdoor lights being lit. For the most part, Lucky Dill is our home away from home for Thanksgiving. Wonderful food and service.
