Always a good predictable meal at Fromin's. The new dill pickles are the major draw for me. In this day and age of speciality restaurants, a good deli is hard to pass up.

Lunch in this unpretentious deli restaurant was great. Omelette and chips (ever the gourmet), and L had something called a Florida burger - had some avocado. Two meals was enough for three of us - two tall man and an average sized woman. It's not posh but just what we wanted after feeling a bit weary of the ultra gloss/rip... More

A family member has many food allergies & it is often difficult to find good restaurants with a large choice of food for them to eat. Fromins was recommended by my hotel staff (even though there was a restaurant on the hotel site). The staff was very helpful & accommodating & the food was delicious. There was just so much... More

Of the diminished number of eat-in delis in Santa Monica, Fromin's is perhaps the best. It's convivial, popular and the food is usually above average. Breakfasts tend to be huge and traditional: eggs and hash; eggs Florentine and Benedict; omelets. Lots of home fries, but if you care about your shape, substitute fruit. Lox and bagels, good but costly, For... More

Fromin's is a very good deli. Unfortunately very good delis have increased in price so much that it makes for an unpleasant experience to give $20 for soup/half sandwich. It is much better if you go when you have a coupon.

I love Fromin's Delicatessen. I ordered the corn beef hash with a poached egg and homefries. Great satisfying meal. The portion was large so I split it with my wife. We then had a cheese blintz served with sour cream, apple sauce and jam. Great meal. Our waitress was a real pro and made our lunch time meal fun. There... More

So Fromins is a great place, the food is Definately deli, My preference is to get food to take away, as opposed to sitting with the 100 year olds. They probably got to 100 eating at Fromins, but for me, I love to pick up take home and feed my group. Bagels are the best and so fresh....yum

Been to this place many times, and the best part is - they have Groupons! So it's great for guests and friends. And they also have gluten free bread, bagels, etc. so it's awesome for me to eat there. I always get the tuna... and eat half so I can save the other half for later! Some of the best... More

Forman's is an excellent deli. Great service, and their chicken in the pot is excellent, as are their huge sandwiches. Yum!

Probably the nicest deli I have ever been to; I compare all of them to my favorite, Car. Deli in NYC. They don't have the big God pickles, but the food was just as good; fresh and hot. Very busy st 2:00 pm, you can tell it is a local favorite. I think I'll come back for breakfast tomorrow. Give... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
