Diner Reviews
  • "Menu options and food execution was good -- what you would expect from a traditional Jewish deli. But the dining room could use some sprucing up. And then there's the ladies' room -- based on the condition encountered and on the log on the back of the door, it would seem that no one had cleaned it in several days. I would not go back because of that...makes me wonder about the kitchen and management in general. A shanda!"

  • "Izzy's is what a great Deli should be! Great food, generous portions, and savvy wait staff that actually knows their borscht from their pastrami! I'll be back! Often!"

  • "Overall I enjoyed my first visit to Izzy's. I had the pastrami sandwich and thought it was pretty good. Also had the mish-mash soup (matzo ball, noodles, kreplach, etc. soup, but that was just ok. I would go back again."

  • "The matzo ball soup was quite bland and the potato pancakes were a little dry. All in all, not their best."

  • "One of the worst delis I have ever been to. The chopped chicken liver was TOUGH. I have never had tough chopped chicken liver before! I was interested in the fried chicken but was told it was frozen and heated up. Will never go back."

  • "Izzy's is a very dependable neighborhood deli. Whenever I am in Santa Monica and want a bowl of chicken soup, this is the place. Like most delis, it's not fancy, but that's not what you're looking for, right? Good lox, good kosher pickles, good bagels and rye bread -- yes to call! Service is friendlier than a lot of Los Angeles area delis, but you still need to order the first time they come to your table or you will be waiting a while. What, you don't walk in knowing what you want? Come on, it's a deli."

  • "Has been good in the past, but seems to be slipping food wise. I ordered their Beef Stew, which literally was a bowl of gravy with 2 potato pieces, couldn't find any vegatables, about 6 pieces of meat, had to put my side of vegetables in gravy to make some stew. Maybe try something else if you go."

  • "This is one of the better places on the Westside for a late night meal, as it is always open. Nothing fancey, but a large variety menu for any late night craving, not great food, but certainly decent with huge portions"

  • "Izzy's is 24/7, and a much-loved neighborhood comfort food spot!"

  • "food good, consistent with large menu. would be a big step up if they served fresh rather than frozen/canned vegetables with their dinners, and "home" made mashed potatoes rather than the instant variety now served."

  • "We've been hitting Izzy's with our kids for years. When a craving for matzoh ball soup, potatoe pancakes and piled high deli sandwiches hits,,, this is it! One nice thing, the grilled sandwiches are not greasy, for the more health conscious."

  • "A good consistent late night deli, with a large menu and very large portions served at reasonable prices"

  • "Reminded me of old style NY deli. Stuffed sandwiches, all the sides and Dr. Browns soda. Any sandwich a meal for two."

  • "Izzy's is a great local deli. Good food and kid friendly!"
    Dined on 4/17/2011
  • "Lots of characters - both serving and eating the food. And that's a GOOD thing. Don't expect to be fed in the order you were seated (even if the latecomers order pretty much the same things you do). And if it's a really long wait, don't expect your food to be hot. We had to send stuff back. Having said all that, if you need a late night deli fix, it's one of the only games in the Santa Monica side of town. P.S. Beware of the loose booth seat backs. If anyone sits behind you, you get bumped around like a cheap amusement park ride with every move they make."

  • "they have a UCLA discount if you work at the hospital and have your ID. Check out their website, there are so many options to choose from it will suit any taste. My wife was at Santa Monica UCLA for a week when we had my son, and we ate Izzys every day at least once. The Rueben is amazing, both turkey and pastrami. The sky-high is another great option if you're into the Rueben but like an onion roll. Great sandwiches, soups, salads and deserts...judging by everything i've had, i'm sure it's all great, and such a wide selection you can have almost anything you're craving!"
