Living in the area first time dining at Milton"s. Parking very difficult but there is a large parking structure behind Whole Foods.
Upon entering, we gave the host our name and were seated within ten minutes. The host did not greet us and just seated us without saying one word other than our name.
Waitress came immediately and asked us what type of beverage we would like.
Reviewing the menu, Milton's is more than a Jewish deli serving various food items including Mexican, burgers, pizza.
My companion ordered the half sandwich of pastrami with coleslaw and Russian dressing and I the overstuffed corned beef and pastrami. The order came quickly from another server.The service went downhill after that.
Since when can you count how many pieces of coleslaw is on your sandwich? Well you could and hardly any dressing as well. Our waitress was no where to be found and we got the attention of another server and commented on the lack of coleslaw and dressing, the server brought a side of coleslaw and dressing. The overstuff sandwich was not great but tasteful -- the pastrami a bit dry. Sadly, the rye bread fell apart and became a messy sandwich. The potato salad was served in a very small side dish and was okay but nothing to rave about.
When our waitress finally came by she noticed the extra coleslaw and commented that they're skimping again. She also commented that she couldn't wait to get out of there since the next day she had off and could we pay since she would be leaving. We were halfway through our meal. (Sorry to use "she" but no name introduction given or name tag.)
Very costly and, in my opinion, with the quality of the food, inattentive service and unfriendliness, it does not warrant another visit. Oh did I mention we had to ask for pickles -- what deli doesn't include pickles? If in San Diego try DZ Akins off of College and Hwy. 8.
