I had lunch at this restaurant with my son. It was the first visit for the both of us so we were excited and were anticipating some excellent deli food. After a 20 minute wait, we were seated at the window which was nice. I had a half sandwich and soup combination. In all honesty, the sandwich was not at... More

Nice food. Not strictly Kosher, but no pigs and shrimp etc. They make their own pastrami which is excellent. Nice smoked fish. Good chopped liver. many seats, so usually it is easy to get a place except at Christmas and Jewish holidays. Great breakfasts, hearty sandwiches and excellent matzo ball soup. Seldom do they have borscht. Waffles and pancakes are... More

It's the only game in town for jewish deli food.That being said,the meats are not fatty,the potato latkes are quite good and the people who work here are all friendly & efficient.There may even be live Klezmer music the night you're there!

You can't beat the New York delicatessen style and atmosphere here. Great soups and overstuffed sandwiches-- love the chicken liver sandwich. Side dishes--such as porato salad--are great, as are the pickles. Try the deserts.

What a wonderful Saturday evening dinner. Three interesting types of pickles were given to our table on seating. They had an interesting selection of regional beers and the waitress was knowledgeable about what each tasted like and what they would pair with. The menu changes within the week so there is always something new to try. The Zatar chicken breast... More

What are great way to start our touring around the Bay Area! Superb pastrami! Big Latke! Fair-sized sandwiches with exceptional ingredients. Expect to wait for a table, but very good service once you get inside.

I had breakfast at Saul's several times on my recent trip there. It was the best Late I had in Berkeley and the breakfast on each occasion Corned beef hash on the one and eggs with sausage and toast was excellent on each occasion. I also had a bagel with cream cheese on yet another visit. I will definitely go... More

I love this place for the pastrami sandwich. My partner had the Rueben and it was also delicious (I stole a bite). Top it off with one of the beers on tap and you will be drooling for more. I always choose the cole slaw which is tasty and not drowning in mayo!

We went here for dinner and ordered the Schnitzel. It was the best (and only) schnitzel I have ever had - I did really enjoy it, however the service was slow and our waitress was less than personable. She may be very nice, but has a constant look of grumpiness (maybe she had a bad day). Anyways, the pickles, which... More

We visited this restaurant on a July Saturday evening and was seated immediately. Our booth was located right next to the drink service area and was quite loud and busy, but hey, it's a deli. The sandwich menu at Saul's is exhaustive. I didn't know where to begin. The four in our party each ordered something different and we were... More
