Great Deli

The food is consistently good and the service is terrific. The waitresses have been there forever, and they treat you like family. We are usually there every Sunday and even if there is a wait outside, you get in fairly quickly. This is a true gem of the Valley.

Brent's never disappoints. Family owned and operated. We've eaten at Brent's often over 25 years. Located in Northridge, CA, in the San Fernando Valley, in an older single story mall. Lots of free and easy parking. Food is consistently excellent. Staff delivers excellent service, many having worked at Brent's for years. Brent's is also the preeminent caterer for gatherings, including... More

My husband and I are frequent customers of Brent's Deli. The food is fresh, delicious, and servings are enormous; we always have leftovers that we take home and eat for another two or three meals. Besides deli, there are many other choices including salads and stir-fry dishes. Preparation is just as requested and we've asked for substitutions which is always... More

Growing up Jewish meant deli food was a must. When I moved to the Valley, it was important to find a breakfast spot that was reminiscent of the deli I went to at home (San Diego). Brent's has great food, awesome service and all your deli favorites. The latkes are thick and crunchy, matzo ball soup is huge, and pickles... More

Until our most recent visit, we regarded this deli as the supreme pastrami purveyor in the San Fernando Valley, if not well beyond. Something happened on our December 2015 visit to change that opinion, however. Brent's usually stellar pastrami had changed for the worse. Whatever the reason, the pastrami was uncharacteristically riddled with fat and gristle throughout, sporting a different... More

The food reminded me of being back in a Deli in New York City. It was a chance to re-live a culture and life style of the East coast. It was excellent!

Corned beef or pastrami? Decisions, decisions! Not big on decor but its a deli, not the 4 Seasons. Best Jewish style deli in Los Angeles. Period, end of story!
