I loved the lima bean soup. The onion rings and kugel both ended up getting tossed, as they weren't to my taste. I thought the onion rings were too bread, while the kugel was covered in something like corn flakes and was dry. I do love the extensive menu, and will go again because I'm sure I'll find other items... More

Great Jewish Deli "find" on the West Coast. Extensive menu and selection. Generous portions and the Matzo Ball soup not only visually appealing but delicious...almost a meal in itself. Service was outstanding. Would recommend this place hands down. It has a bit of a chain restaurant feel but the food was outstanding...all home cooked!

We stopped in on the recommendation of a local, and were so glad we did! Brent's has everything a good ol deli should have, including fresh pickles and great service, with a smile. I had the braunschweiger on rye which was delicious , my friend had the brisket tacos which she said were also delicious with super tender meat. The... More

We picked up sandwiches to take to the beach. We looked forward to the sandwiches based on the great reviews. In our experience, the sandwiches did not live up to the hype. To me, the turkey had no taste. It was as though the turkey was roasted without any salt or seasoning whatsoever. My husband had the corned beef and... More

You are always dubious about the quality of a new location when the original is considered (by you) as the best Deli in Southern California. That is the feeling I had when I experienced Brent's new facility in Westlake Village. Truthfully I had been counting the miles since I landed in Burbank and was not disappointed. The new location is... More

Been eating at this restaurant since it opened in Westlake Village, and have been going to the Northridge location since 1970! I have NEVER had a bad meal at Brent's. Family owned and operated by very nice people. They deserve all of their success. As far as Delis go. They are the standard that all others are judged in Southern... More

This is a nice deli, and only deli, in Thousand Oaks. The ketchup and mustard bottles could be a little cleaner, but overall, the restaurant is nicely maintained. The service is as expected at a deli. The leaner cuts of pastrami and corned beef are good when available. The potato salad lacks spices but is ok. The three bean salad... More

The four of us ate lunch at Brent's Deli. The menu is extensive and comprehensive. We ordered a large variety of lunches, from plates to sandwiches. They were all tasty. The pastrami sandwich was good, but had a slightly "processed" flavor to the meat. We would return.
