Visiting Portland for the holidays....my son recommended Kornblatt's since we were already downtown. I have eaten at a lot of Jewish Deli's....and this place was a huge disappointment. Excellent service, but we all were disappointed with what we ordered. I thought the portions were more than skimpy for the prices charged.

Used TA to find this deli. Was very impressed that they had tongue on the menu. Unfortunately I was totally disappointed. The sandwich that I was served had a packaged rye bread with small, thin and almost stale slices and the tongue was not edible. The waitress checked and the tongue was a pressed tongue loaf which is a German... More

Ordered their corned beef sandwich what a disappointment it was. I've had many corned beef sandwiches at so called "New York Jewish style deli's" and theirs was awful. The corned beef should be sliced by hand in thick pieces and piled high, not paper thin on a meat slicer. Chicken soup was also a disappointment cut up chunks of chicken... More

Stopped in for an early dinner and ordered the hot pastrami sandwich with homemade potato salad and of course kosher pickles. Old school atmosphere good service.

We had a hot corned beef sandwich and a hot pastrami sandwich after visiting the Pittock Mansion. They were sooo tender, lean and moist. Very tasty! Our server was upbeat and attentive. Eat here an take a stroll around this great neighborhood! There's a donut place across the street somewhere that was delicious as well.

The service is friendly, and the food is good. A sandwich with a couple of sides was enough for the two of us to share at lunch time. I would certainly come back.

We enjoyed a delicious breakfast outside one morning. The menu is extensive with breakfast items as well as deli sandwiches. The prices are reasonable, the food is very good, and the service is fast and friendly. Would definitely return.

We were on a walk looking at neighborhood and found this. Loved the jar of pickles on the table. Only had bagels and coffee and excellent. The food being served looked great. This is deli food mostly.

Kornblatt's is in a great little neighborhood, nice for walking. They have tables outside. The menu includes lots of great deli choices. I had the corned beef hash and my husband had a sandwich with corned beef, pastrami and sauerkraut on rye. Everything was really good. The corned beef was outstanding - the best I've ever had. It is house-made.... More

I have been ti Kornblatt's many times. When I want good reliable deli food in Portland then I head to Kornblatt;s. Corned beef, pastrami, and most of the expected Jewish deli foods. All pretty good, but not like New York delis. I had a hot corned beef sandwich and Kim had a Pavrotti special. Both were very good.
