I received my package and immediately after opening I HAD to eat one of the herrings. Oh.....so good! Took my mind right back to the streets of Holland where I lived for 4 years.

Lindsay A. - Dallas, TX
The flavors we remembered from NYC. Got here quickly and in time to satiate our cravings for bagels, lox, and smoked sturgeon with scallion schmier. Everything was fresh and tasty. Also got some Raspberry Rugelach. An addicting dessert for sure! Thanks Russ & Daughters and Goldbelly for making it possible to enjoy these treats without having to travel so far.
Brad W. - Geneva, FL
Yummy for heavenly bagels and biallies. The Norwegian lox was melting. Cream cheese and scallions just plain delicious. I treat myself and friends about once a month.
Sylvia H. - Arlington, VA
I ordered rye bread, bagels, horseradish cream cheese, and chopped liver. I was pleased with the delivery which arrived as promised; the packaging; and the quality of the ingredients. I have longed especially for the chopped liver and it exceeded my expectations.

The package arrived on time as announced. It was exceptionally well packaged inside with the smoked salmon perfectly cold on the ice and separated well from the babka and the bagels. I reuse your box during the summer months as my ice box in my car trunk. The food was delicious as always and we enjoyed it immensely. Thank you Russ and Daughters for your excellent food and Goldbelly for bringing it to us safe and on time. Happy holidays. Nicole

Deanne O. - Chevy Chase, MD
Arrived on time w/ great instructions on how to freeze the salmon. Bagels lasted 1 day! Great housewarming present.
Betsy B. - Biltmore Lake, NC
What was there not to like about it? Every. Single. Item..was packaged, wrapped, chilled and packed perfectly to reserve what is easily one of NYC's best deli/bagel stores. My only critique would be the timing of the arrival of baskets. I can see Russ and Daughters packs them the night before in Brooklyn for delivery the next day. Since R&D has a lot of tasty breakfast foods, Goldbelly needs to offer the option of delivery by ~10am as an option.
Basil M. - Wallingford, CT
Love the convenience and that I could get my daughter NY bagels in TN for her birthday!
Alexandra D. - Johnson City, TN
Everything arrived in perfect condition! There is nothing like a NY bagel and the pumpernickel and bialys were awesome! The latkes and the smoked salmon too! I will definitely be ordering again!
Ann E. - Albany, NY
I love the babkas and halavah from Russ & Daughters. This is the second time I've ordered their babkas and they are wonderful--very fresh--and freezes well. Will order them again when I run out.
Bonnie S. - Middletown, NY
The bialys, which are difficult to buy where we live are wonderful! And the smoked salmon has much more taste than what I buy in the supermarket.
Ann J. - Palm Desert, CA
The food was very tasty. The sable my husband says is the best he's ever had.
Patti M. - Stoughton, MA
The fish were perfectly smoked. I didn’t want them filleted or any bones removed but anyway, the whitefish and chub were truly superb and perfection.
Barbara A. - Fernandina Beach, FL
We enjoyed our order from Russ and Daughters with former New Yorkers. We all decided that this should be something we do more often. The salmon was delicious! We don't have the luxury of such quality here in New Mexico. The bagels, bialys and cream cheese were wonderful too. The order arrived as scheduled, in perfect condition. Love the insulated bag from Russ and Daughters.
