Service, menu, food, location make this one of our favorite restaurants for a quick local meal. We love breads and is the best Deli in San Diego.

We had great food (Rueben, Turkey Pot Pie, Chicken Fingers and a Chicken Pot Pie) at Miltons. Portions were the right size and the wait staff was prompt. The host was having a bad day. He was grumpy when one of the servers dropped a coleslaw on the floor. It was messy but it got cleaned up right away without... More

Great service, menu and location! Breakfast any time and the sandwiches are fantastic! I had the famous Ruben - a half and soup was just right! My family had the Mac and cheese & chicken salad.

We went to Milton's in Del Mar because we purchased a local meal deal ($10 for $20 worth of food). We each purchased a sandwich and shared half. The service was very good and very fast. I guess it doesn't take long to put some meat on a piece of bread. The meat was very good quality and tasty. The... More

The food itself at Milton's is quite good, though the table placement and ceilings can make it quite noisy and uncomfortable for conversation. The deli sandwiches are thick, so for a NY style jewish deli, it serves the purpose. It wouldn't be our 'go-to' place for that type of food however, and despite it's proximity to our home, we travel... More

It is pricey but as a born in NY Jewish person I found Milton's to be authentic NY Jewish style deli. My guy and I each had the soup and 1/2 sandwich special. We both chose matzah ball soup and it was the best we ever had- loaded with noodles, chunks of chicken , carrots and a huge matzah ball.... More

Why do I call this review a minority report? Because I freely acknowledge that my dissatisfied experience is in a minority. Most people are saying their experience was very good. Mine was NOT. First thing that hit me was the exorbitant prices. By the way, their website does not include menu prices. I thought at least the size of the... More

Milton's is now bigger than just a restaurant in Del Mar. Their breads are well known in stores throughout the country BUT there is nothing like their challah bread and yes (!) the raisin challah is worth converting for! I love Milton's and there service both for catering and dining is A+!

My cousin suggested this restaurant and we were not disappointed. It's a little piece of NYC in California. We ordered traditional meals...chicken soup and a pastrami sandwich. Service was excellent and the food reminded us of home. Great find!
