Popular diner in Northridge decked out in green. The portions are jaw-dropping, though the food in general is mediocre -- you really want to try the pastrami when you're here. It hits the spot after a bit hike and undoubtedly the star of the menu.
The Secret to Brent's Deli – The food is awesome, and everyone knows it! So it's standing room only, waiting for a table, elbow to elbow~ eh! If you hate that kind of scene, if you're a barfly, if you'ld rather sit in a plush wrap-around booth and stare at a tv over a bar than listen to everyone around you try to chat louder than the table next to them, then GO next door to the StovePiper Lounge, where they will happily order your Brent's Deli order and have it sent over. Best of both worlds!

Our waitress WENDEE couldn't have been nicer. Full of personality, helpful, efficient and knows her menu. She also put up with us as first timers and very picky about Deli's east and west coast. We are not easy, but can be easily pleased with Great service and food. Thanks WENDEE and staff for making this wonderful.
We travelled some 48 miles each way on this blustery, raining, sleeting saturday. The place was packed, but waiting was less than 10 minutes. The service and food were exceptional.
Wendee helped us decide on the whats and why's each test dish would be good.
The immediate family of Phils Seafood sent us there. May G-d rest Irv.
With this reference we entered sort of starving and left with memories of my youth and a carbon copy clone of Bubby Cohens Beef barley Soup, Uncle Manny's Corned beef on extraordinary double baked sour rye, Fried Kreplach with grilled onions, Knaidelech the size of a softball, delicious in the chicken soup with just like home noodles. A Doctor Browns and Diet coke finished it off. Wendee was at the table at least 7 times and her counterparts came by a few times as well. The buss boys and cashiers were great.
Then the to go orders, OMG more of the same.There was WENDEE making sure our to go order was to our liking. The counter help could have been from South Poland, knew their stuff, sliced it perfectly and presented it extremely well. Like Perfect.....Perfect Rice and bread puddings, breads, bagels and what else did I nosh on long 1.7 hour in the rain drive home. BEEF BARLEY
I dont usually pay attention to Zagats anything, but at least they agree for 14 years.. How about a Torrance or Beach Cities location?
Good food and delivery – We were looking for a good deli close by -- usually we would do Mort's in Tarzana, but that's a litte far for us now. Brents had a great menu, great dishes, and nice deserts. I had a cornbeef on pastrami and rye, which was decent. The black and whites from the bakery were wonderful, top notch. Definitely a place we will keep on our go-to list.
I've just returned to LA after 7 years – and went to Brent's for the first time since I've been away. It's nowhere as good as I remember, and has gotten very expensive. $20 for a corned beef sandwich and a drink, tax, and tip is a lot of money..
A Pleasant Surprise – My boyfriend and I are always on the hunt to find the best sandwich in this part of the valley. I had read about Brent's online and decided we should try it. It was by far the best sandwich that I've had in a long while. The french dip turkey and pastrami sandwich was to die for. Brent's is a bit expensive for the sandwich, but you'll discover it's well worth it when you take the first bite!
Brent's...You're still the one – Without hesitation I can say this is your best bet for GREAT deli fare. My family has been eating at Brent's since the joint opened, and we've never been dissapointed with the food or the service. The catering is awesome for a low-key get together.
Over the years I spent many a hot Sunday afternoon waiting patiently for a table. As the minutes passed I daydream about the tasty chicken noodle soup, the succulent hot pastrami sandwich (or Monte Cristo...depending on our mood), the decadent chocolate eclair. Sometimes when I don't have the time to wait, I phone in my order to-go and bypass the line!
My friend told me how great Brent's was. – My friend told me how great Brent's e was. So I went in for a quick lunch and find that the place is really packed. I was by myself so i was seated pretty quickly. I got the French Dip, and usually im always disappointed by it everywhere i go. They did one hell of a job for just a French Dip. And the potato salad is to die for.
I don't get out here offten but when I'm in the area and looking for a good sandwich Brents is where I'm going.
Seems a bit stingy on the stars for the written review. This guy really liked the deli. Should be 5 stars. Really, Brents is THE BEST deli I have been to on the west coast bar none.
Freshest deli in LA for sure. Everything is fresh. Good clean healthy bomb deli sandwiches is alright with me
Best Brunch in Los Angeles – Absolutely love this place. Generous portions while not compromising on taste. Delicious mushroom barley soup as well as dip sandwiches. Have been here severeal times and will definitely recommend to everyone as the best deli in Los Angeles. Also great for catering.
THE BEST PASTRAMI SANDWICHES AND CHEESEBURGERS AROUND!!! – I don't even eat pastrami but this place has the tastiest pastrami I have ever tasted. Also the Cheeseburgers are mouth watering good. Everything is huge and yummy, even the deserts. Love the service and will always eat here for the rest of my life!!!
