Just about anything on the menu is great but their homemade cornbeef hash is the best, also make sure to try the latkes.

We go for lunch often as they have great small meals: tasty, unique and fairly priced. Pastromi and corned beef sandwiches are wonderful!

Was in Boston for an outpatient procedure with my Doctor. Hotels were booked solid but found a great Airbnb in Brookline, just minutes from Fenway and Back Bay. Never heard of area but what a pleasant surprise. Charming little old-world village full of restaurants and shops. The head nurse at my Doc's said Zatfig's was NOT to be missed. WOW!!... More

Oh my goodness. This was really great food and it helped that our waitress was friendly. It takes a few minutes to get your food but they are cooking as you order would highly recommend you try this.

Zaftig's replaced a Jewish Deli at that same location. The original Deli was well liked, good food served well and remained consistent over many years. I have given Zaftig's several chances over the past several years and did not see any measurable improvement.

Great food and great service. Busy place with lots of choices. Boys loved the free apps/bagel chips and dip... Also had catering done from here and it was fantastic. Every detail taken care of by their staff.

We have gone to this deli a few times, but find it to be a little expensive for sandwiches basis what you receive. It is nice to get the spread and bagel chips while waiting for your order. One time I requested onions on a hot dog and was charged extra which I felt was ridiculous.

This place always has a line out the door and a wait because it's totally worth it. We have been for both breakfast and lunch and both are great! It's worth the wait.

We were a large group of 30 but had made a reservation. They would not seat the older members of the group first and instead kept us waiting over 30 minutes. Had trouble handling a large group.

The service was slow and poor. The food was not served warm as it was supposed to. It is better for breakfast. Corned beef was fatty and the coleslaw is too creamy.
