Luckily I have lived in the SF Valley for most of my life, so Brent's has always been nearby. But as a fan of delis and especially pastrami - this one is at the top. Worth a trip to Northridge. Expect a wait at peak...More

My family and I have been going to Brent's for decades. It is the best deli in Los Angeles, and definitely worth the wait. I have never had a better, or bigger, matzo ball. They are great for catering family events too. We often order...More

When I'm in the neighborhood I'll stop at Brent's for a splurge. It's a little too pricey to be a regular haunt. The sandwich meats, fresh rye bread, & sides are great. We never order dinners or plates. The chopped liver is amazing. And their...More

Wonderful food, great service, huge portions. It's a good think I don't live near this place or I'd weigh 400 pounds.

My family and I enjoy dining at Brent's. The food is magnificent. The portions are huge, enough to take home for another meal. Everything is so delicious, especially the corned beef and the Matzo Ball Soup. The children are treated like royalty.

Great deli food. The eclair is hard to resist. Lean corned beef Ruben is a favorite. Also love the chicken soup. Bagel chips. It can get crowded and a little noisy.

Best deli in the area! We enjoy the sandwiches and the Chinese chicken salad. The sandwiches have loads of meat and fresh bread. We also order platters and salads for our office and everyone loves it! Catering staff is friendly and helpful.

Visited yesterday for a half brisket sandwich in the Westlake location. The restaurant is super clean, service attentive and the food top shelf. While years ago I used to visit Jerry’s Famous, it has gone significantly downhill,and off the cliff. At Brent’s you can rest...More

Because I don't have small kids anymore, I have never noticed but I am sure they do. It's a great restaurant and child friendly.

I have neighbors that go to NYC a few times a year, and enjoy the pastrami from pastrami Queen (mentioned in the Wall Street Journal recently). They tell me that Brent's pastrami and rye bread are better. Los Angeles now... More
