Great place to eat with the family. Super welcoming. Coffee and service were fab and the pastrami sandwich was amazing. Wish we had room for the cheesecake which looked awesome. Our son really enjoyed his hot dog too. Thanks Saul

If you are looking for nutritious matzah ball soup or an excellent corned beef on rye, you can't miss at Saul's. And the menu is long and varied so there is something to please everyone. The atmosphere is relaxed and old-fashioned. Very consistent and usually you can find a table any time. Great family place.

We go there throughout the year, either for lunch or a dinner once in a while. The best thing we appreciate is the Deli! on Jewish Holidays ..especially Hanukkah,Rosh Hasshana and Passover, we order additions to our familly meals.they are consistent in their offerings and we really enjoy the Charoset, the chopped liver, and the macaroons! I love Saul's !

I had a fantastic Sunday Brunch with my gf! I'm quite selective about my brunches (favorite meal!), so Sauls did a wonderful job with service, the hash, and the atmosphere. There were a lot of people, but the wait was only 15 min or so. Completely worth it! We will be back!

Always been a favorite since my first time here over a decade ago. Its a busy place but service is prompt, the decor is, well - deli! Food is superb. They've added home made sodas like celery soda, perfect as I could have it without added sugar, unlike the bottled ones. And the 3 of us had food coma within... More

I've been here for both breakfast and dinner, though I have to say that breakfast is my favorite! I've thoroughly enjoyed their eggs benedict with spinach multiple times - the challa and caramelized onions add so much to the dish! Recently my husband and I were looking for a lighter breakfast -- their yogurt with homemade granola and honey was... More

Absolutely nothing to complain about here - but never felt like anything was over the top either. The place is a longstanding establishment, which means the food is excellent and they know it (read prices are not a bargain - but definitely NOT a ripoff either). I had Pastrami with coleslaw on rye and it was absolutely delicious. Not piled... More

I have just spent four or so days in San Francisco & was totally disappointed by the prices at restaurants there and the service. Totally overpriced and mediocre service overall! Came to Saul's for lunch and had excellent food with strong service. The prices seemed a wee bit high, but nothing too alarming. By far this is the best food... More

Saul's deli has been just about my favorite breakfast spot in the East Bay for over ten years. Their food has always been very tasty though a bit pricier than other places and slightly smaller portions. However, it is very popular and often requires a bit of a wait, especially on the weekends. The last few times I have eaten... More

This is a great place for sandwiches and other jewish food. Food is great, but over priced. Huge portions. Great deli. Parking is hard to find.
