Very Disappointing to say the least...

I ate at 'wichcraft in Chelsea for the first time yesterday, and I have never had a worse sandwich. Really. I ordered the aged gruyere with roasted onions on rye: the bread was so hard it was I could barely crunch into it, the cheese was tasteless and chewy, the onions were mush. It was on a nice plate, but with absolutely no garnish or style, and the sandwich was thrown together, with the onions all in one place. It came so fast I wonder if it was pre-made and sitting around. It was about 12:30 PM. I would have complained but I was with a hiring manager and didn't want to seem difficult. Oh, and the service is non-existent, you put in your order at the registers and pay before you get your food. I work in the building, and was looking forward to a nice treat, but will not go back. Overpriced, too.

Being from Maine, I always prefer to be out in fresh air than sitting in a restaurant, so imagine my joy when I ran across 'wichcraft in Bryant Park on my recent visit (of course this mild winter didn't hurt, so it was warm enough to sit and eat in the park). My partner is a baker, so I've had plenty of sandwiches and breads in my time. The turkey, bacon and avocado on ciabatta with onion relish was, I swear, the best sandwich I've ever had! Followed by a fresh chocolate with chocolate ganache cream'wiche - I was so happy that I went back the next day and had the tomato with parmesan soup and grilled cheese. Again, delicious! Got another turkey sandwich for on the train home the next day, and a variety of the cream'wiches. The chocolate was best, the chocolate chip a bit crispy, and I'm not a fan of almond. Service was quick and very friendly. I thought the prices were very reasonable as well. I would definitely go back!

One of the best sandwiches in Flatiron/Gramercy area

Beats institutions in the area like Eisenberg's or Defontes. The sandwiches are healthier, cheaper and a lot more tasty! Get the gruyere and cramelized onion on rye.

Recently had a bagel there, and the bagels taste like they just came out from a bagel shop oven. One of the best bagels I ever had in NYC.

Very disappointed in having to pay $4.38 for a soggy oatmeal cookie/strawberry ice cream sandwich that crumbled at the first bite

Not so impressed

Spent the weekend in the city - and searched out 'witchcraft to try. It did not meet expectations. The sandwich selection was interesting and diverse - but the execution was poor. I had high hopes for the Pulled Pork Sandwich but the woman behind the counter burnt the bread - and the pork was really dry. We also tried to the Ham/Pear Panini and were equally unimpressed. The services was slow - and the drink selection was poor. On a positive note - my daughter did enjoy the PBJ on nice sourdough bread!

Again, great lunch / quick snack option

Slightly expensive, but very well made sandwiches. I am a little disappointed at their beverage selection, though. I feel that it's not diverse enough. Again, taking away the wait, this is a solid lunch or quick snack option if I'm in the area. I wouldn't go out of my way for it, but I suppose nobody would.

There is no sandwich better than the roast pork with the jalapenos. It is awesome.

i was on a visit in nyc on business and came across the wichraft on 8th and broadway. living in germany and getting around in europe alot, as well as being in the food and restaurant industry i somehow have the feeling i know a little bit and have seen a lot. i was on a lunch break and tried two sandwiches and my partner as well and we loved the sicilian tuna on the greens and the truffled cheese sandwich as weel as the pork and beef sandwiches. the atmosphere was great, the music wonderful and the service was naturally friendly and interested! as soon as i am back in town i will be back!!!

I have been to wichcraft in Bryant Park three times. July 6th, 8th, and 10th of 2005. The service was terrible, and I have a degree in business management so I know what is good and bad. Kevin, who said he was the manager, but looked more like a nervous high school kid at the sandwich counter spent more time trying to figure out how to handle the amount of business there during lunch than actually looking up and noticing that there was a line of 25 people waiting. On my last visit, I heard two employees talking about how a deposit of over $4000 was missing from a cooler where the money was being left together with other food products!! I dont need to hear that! Look guys, either get your act together or pack it up. It sounds to me like your cash procedures need an overhaul, and your management...(sorry Kevin)lack the ability to handle REAL NYC business. The bread on the tuna sandwich I bought for almost ten dollars was like biting into a sponge! Bad food=0 customer retention. Did anyone in this organization learn that in college? Good luck boys, your gonna need it.
