I went here during the summer of 2013. Brent's Deli has a varied menu full of good stuff. I went with their delicious Reuben's sandwich (it was hard to choose from all of the great sandwiches on the menu), It comes with fries (you can choose between straight or curly fries) and coleslaw as well as with whatever kind of...

Went there with the family for dinner because the wife wanted some Jewish rye bread. The wait staff is very attentive and knowledgeable of the menu which has something for everyone. The wife decided on the cabbage roll dinner which came with two cabbage rolls. All I can say is OMG, those things were huge! She managed to eat half... More

Every time I go to Brent's I order the pastrami with chopped liver. As a matter of fact, every so often I think about it and need a "fix." The pastrami is excellent as is the chopped liver and I love the combination. I always ask for the newer pickles and our server is always happy to accommodate. The wait... More

I am glad I found this Gem! I ordered a half Ruben and bowl of New England chowder, along with fries and pickles, and I was stuffed! The pastrami was excellent and not greasy, the rye bread along with everything else on the sandwich was excellent. The Chowder was hearty and tasted fresh. Seating is plentiful and parking is as...

Hubby and I dined with my aunt for one last lunch at Brent’s, the amazing Jewish deli in Northridge, before leaving town. Crisp pickles on the table and fresh warm rye bread to start your meal. I’m a fan of pea soup and Brent’s makes a phenomenal bowl, full of perfect chunks of carrots, slivers of onion and tender pulled... More

This place is out of the way and kinda shady, but the service was good. Food was good although NYC Katz deli and even Vegas in the mirage are better!

Built my own omlette with pastrami, avacado, cheddar, and jalapenos. Home fries well done. Rye toast.

Still the best in LA. A "must" visit. The food is all over the place and exceptional your wish and they will prepare it! I had lox and eggs and onions. Too much to eat. The rest of the party went with sandwhich. HUGE! Service as usual was outstanding. Can't ask for much more....

It was not the first time I ate at Brent's, having lived in its neighborhood for years before moving. I was not disappointed by my decision to check out this restaurant again recently after more than a year. The omelets were great, as those were what I always went there to eat. The service was friendly and quick as usual.... More
