Brent's has a huge menu, but have a sandwich, they are the best. We love the corned beef or pastrami sandwiches. They are huge and come with some great sides. I would not order the lox benedict or any breakfast item. They are okay, not...More

Atrocious service on this first time eating here in years. I ordered the lox Benedict. The egg was as hard as a rock and lukewarm at best. In all a very unsatisfactory experience.

Wonderful food, great service, huge portions. It's a good think I don't live near this place or I'd weigh 400 pounds.

My family and I enjoy dining at Brent's. The food is magnificent. The portions are huge, enough to take home for another meal. Everything is so delicious, especially the corned beef and the Matzo Ball Soup. The children are treated like royalty.

Because I don't have small kids anymore, I have never noticed but I am sure they do. It's a great restaurant and child friendly.

I have neighbors that go to NYC a few times a year, and enjoy the pastrami from pastrami Queen (mentioned in the Wall Street Journal recently). They tell me that Brent's pastrami and rye bread are better. Los Angeles now... More
