Located in the middle of Sherwood Plaza on Route 9/Worcester Rd the menu is traditional Jewish deli fare. Preparations are the same as in Brookline and work to emulate the wonderful Jack and Marion's. While not quite up to that standard, Zaftig is a very reasonable facsimile in a suburban location that makes the trip into Brookline or Boston less... More

We finished our errands at a nearby shop and decided to have a sit-down lunch at Zaftig's, since we had done take-out from there before and were satisfied with it. The sit-down area had zero atmosphere, but we were there for the food. We ordered a pastrami Reuben because we don't care for the lean corned beef version since it... More

I want to preface this review by saying that I have eaten inside at the Framingham location of Zaftig’s numerous times and have never had a complaint about the food, service or price. So I was heading into Boston to visit some friends and decided to do a take-out order and treat my friends to lunch. I called in the... More

have eaten here before . took family visiting from out of town. had some corn beef sandwiches. lean but very dry. not the way it should be. potato pancakes were ok. fries were cold. music if you could call it that was loud and annoying. service was quick - not crowded.

Great brunch/diner spot. The food was tasty and plentiful. The wait time was reasonable. Great place to meet up with friends and not tip the budget out of whack.

We were looking for good food and good conversation, and Zaftig's worked on both counts. The food was very good - I ordered the three smoked fish sampler, with a gluten free bagel. Excellent presentation, and very good tastes. My son had a great looking egg and potato dish. The service was excellent - the waitress gave us coffee right... More

Like this place for lunch. Reminds me a little of my NY roots. Great to take a break from your chain fast food. The deli is some of the best in the Boston area. We enjoyed a nice corned beef sandwich... and a very good tuna sandwich on rye. Good, friendly service.

We are regular visitors to the area from Montreal as our son and his family live here. No visit of ours is complete without a pit stop at Zaftig's Delicatessen. Corned beef, pastrami, chopped liver whatever your pleasure they have it. Fresh, yummy and your choice of many breads from rye, sissel, to challah, it's all fresh fresh, fresh! The... More

Great little spot. We haven't eaten everything but often pick up wraps and roasted chicken. Always get the fries, they are outstanding.
