  • We bought lunch from here and ate it next door in the restaurant. Food was excellent, plenty to choose from, all at a reasonable price. 
  • Types of foods rich in a nice souvenir pack of nuts and chocolate. Shop logo DS is on the landing of the stairs. Staff is friendly, many local residents. Guests can enjoy a kitchen guts corner on the second floor is beautiful, just look.

  • Zabar's is a treasure house of food and kitchen ware, but the dining area leaves a lot to be desired. The way to order food seems disorganised, and the tables are cluttered and not cleaned often enoug...  more »

  • Great selection of products and good service. Two stories - first floor is food products, including a great selection of cheeses, cooked food, and various specialty or hard-to-find food products. Second floor is of kitchen/cooking tools and goods. I'd say the prices are reasonable for this selection and type of products.
  • A classic of the Upper West Side. A great place for fine meats, fishes, fresh bread, cheese and olives. It's a bit over priced (naturally) and over hyped. However, they do sometimes have sales at the end of the day such as half price sushi and sandwiches and deals on fresh bread and bagels. Worth visiting for specialty items or at least once.
  • Rugelach, bagels, lox, knishes. These are things that I love and Zabar's has some of the best. When it's not packed, it's also just a great store to wander.
  • Zabars is a Nyc institution. It's must visit if on the upper west side. Great baked goods, lox and shmear sandwiches and babka. Do it.
  • A classic, Manhattan/NYC staple grocery and specialty store - Zabar's has some of the best items in the city (but at a price). You can find some great deals here if you come often and take the time to check out the items. Their cheese / olive selection is amazing and so is their bread section. My favorite Zabar's trip includes: freshly squeezed orange juice (one of the best I've ever tasted), a cheese selection and a French baguette. Purchase all three and your set for a picnic nearby on the Hudson. Their coffee beans are also great. If you go up to their mezzanine, you can find some kitchen housewares.
