“Good food but noisy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

Saturday lunch was good, shared with friends: turkey wrap moist with crisp vegetables, banana pancakes light and yummy, salad wedge excellent with blue cheese salad dressing, and hamburger and fries great. Cannot complain about the food, but the noise level made for hard conversation.

Guess success and busy restaurant brings loud noise.

“Small Sandwiches”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

We thought the sandwiches were small and expensive. No one in our party of 8 was thrilled with their food.

“Great ambience and excellent food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

We both had the lox scramble which came with delicious potatoes, rye and pumpernickel. Also ordered cheese blintzes which were overstuffed. Looking forward to going again.
Service so-so.

“A great deli”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

Zaftigs is my favorite place to eat in Brookline. There is a wide selection on the menu, and you can never go wrong. The chopped liver and cheese blintzes are particularly good. It gets VERY crowed on weekends so get there early, otherwise you could be in for a long wait.

“Excellent Deli”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2013 via mobile

They handled a group of 10 with ease. Corned beef, brisket and Reuben sandwiches were great.
Ok letters and bagels very good. Service was also great. Prices reasonable . Highly recommended.
