Best deli on the west coast bar none. Whatever you order is great. Large portions with fair prices. Wait staff have amazing patience and will comply with anything you request. Best in the west!

Been going there for 35 years. Still is the best Deli in Los Angeles of many I have tried. However rated it 4 Because the last few times had some dissapointments with the food. Twice chicken in soup was rubber like and the cod fish which is my favorite wasn't so good last time. They may be slipping a little.... More

I could not say enough good things about Brent's. From start to finish everything is so superb. No wonder tons of people flock to this place. We have been coming here for a couple of (10+) years now and we have never ever been disappointed. Today was a lovely rainy day and I felt like having Brent's delicious matzo ball... More

I love their smoked white fish, baked salmon and sturgeon. Always crowded as it is overall probable the best kosher style deli in Los Angeles. Really big portions, food is always fresh

Be prepared to wait for a table, but it's worth the wait. The BEST Cabbage Soup I have ever tasted. Portions are great. It's very noisy, so if you want an intimate meal, this is not the place.

Very busy on weekends, but worth the wait. Good food, large portions, fair prices and plenty of parting. Their catering is great!

We return to Brent's every 5 or 6 weeks. We only go to the Westlake location because it has a comfortable bar area, with multiple televisions that usually have various sporting events playing. But the restaurant is very large, and has other places where one can eat in relative quiet. The food is traditional "deli" fare, highlighted by large sandwiches... More

great place to eat. Their sandwiches are mile high. service is also great. on Fridays and Saturdays you will have to go before 5 p.m. or you will have a waiting time but it is worth it.

I recently moved from Chicago, which is saturated with deli's. Some good, some not so good. The "King of Chicago" is Manny's. I was concerned that I would not be able to find a local deli here in T.O. that could match up even closely to Manny's. Well, I found it! Brent's quality is superb, the taste of the corned... More
