Delicious breakfast. Have an appetizing breakfast at this traditional deli. The breakfast menu is very extensive and offers a large choice of diverse omelets and egg dishes, pancakes, sandwiches, cakes and mouth melting pastries. The service is very attentive and friendly. Highly recommend the hot oatmeal. It comes steaming, with raisins and brown sugar and milk. Delicious and healthy!
A grilled cheese priced at $8 with no fries?!?!?! Who do you think you are? This isn't Montana Ave!
If you wanna charge $8 for bread and cheese, fine, go ahead. If you wanna offer it with coleslaw (which we all knows costs barely $0.50 a person), go ahead. At least offer us that measly side..or one of the others offered. Don't just assume we are ok with a slice of bread, cheese, and another slice of bread for $8. If I'm paying you to make it, at least earn the $7.50 it costs to make buy serving your customer.
This is coming from someone in the food service industry, shame on you.
A Matter Of Taste.
It is a matter of taste, but every now and then I stop by Izzy's because I like their pastrami sandwich. I like it better than Canter's, or Langer's, or the Broadway Deli.
The other dishes I've tried there have also been good, and the servings are generous.
Nor have I ever had problems with the service.
below average jewish deli. this says it all: their pastrami doesn't stack up to jerry's or junior's, nor do their desserts nor their mazo ball soup. go to jerry's or junior's.
Yummy Hamburger. i got the arnold barbecue burger and it was delicious and the fries were crispy and golden brown. I was so stuffed so I did not have room to try the deserts that looked amazing.
Not too greasy if you order the right things.. I don't know what it is with all of these reviews saying Izzy's is just "okay" or super-greasy etc. I just went there for the first time and I found the atmosphere super-cool, the wait staff among the best, and the food overall excellent. My wife's turkey sandwich was pretty simple, but good. My burger was excellent -- not too greasy or anything like that. Perfect atmosphere for straight good food.
Late night breakfast just so-so. Not wanting to drive all the way to the Strip to satisfy our munchies, we opted to go here after a night of bar hopping and dancing. Compared to other delis in LA (Nate n Al's, Jerry's, Canter's), the prices were very reasonable--I got waffles, eggs and fruit all for only like $6-7. The ol' school Hollywood atmosphere was nice and the late hours and central location to 3rd St. are great. The food was just ok--I rather go to Toi for late night dining on 11th and Wilshire. Im willing to give Izzy's another chance, but honestly, their breakfast was no better than Denny's.
West-side late night. I've been to this place many times - mostly after a night out. I recently tried this place when sober, and found it suprisingly decent. Definitely a better value than other famous LA's delies. The knockwurst served on a bun is a signature dish - and be sure to order some cheese fries with gravy - not on the menu, but tasty.
Not health food!. We completely agree with the other reviews here. Izzy's is your typical LA Jewish deli, with the requisite large portions, greasy food, and retro ambiance. We honestly cannot distinguish any of our favorite items (Reubens, deli sandwiches, kishka) from any other LA deli's versions. We also feel that while the portions are huge, the prices are proportional, so it never strikes us as "cheap eats". However, like Canter's, Izzy's can be a blessing late at night when no other restaurants are open, and its Westside location is very convenient. The service has always been friendly and professional. If you know what to expect, Izzy's can be a satisfying experience.
24 Hour Deli in Santa Monica. This is one of the few 24 hour places open in Santa Monica. The food is average. But the classic LA deli feel with signed headshots of celebrities. The BUNN coffee warmers and the greasy french fries. Love it.
