What happened to Lovi's? Loved Lovi's when they first opened. But it has all gone down hill!!! :(
Sat in the bar on a Saturday night because other section was deafening. Now that they have Happy Hour daily from 3pm - 10 pm, it is crowed with a big DRINKING crowd. Loud, obnoxious drinking crowd.
The server appeared to be on uppers. Rushing around like a character from Alice In Wonderland. I was intimidated to ask for anything else. She would appear and disappear like the Cheshire Cat.
Then came the food. Matzah Brie was worse than ever. Tasteless, gluey concoction! Turkey burgers were tough. Needed an electric saw to cut through them. Could we report this to our server. Heck NO! She did not stand by the table long enough for us to finish our sentence, before she was off and running...literally. Only came by at the end with a big smile asking how everything was... you know...the end when all they are thinking about is a 3 letter word. Lovi's - OY!!!!

I enjoyed a great birthday meal. We were a party of 9, and Lovi's was able to seat us comfortably. The service was wonderful and the food was delicious! When our server found out it was my birthday, he put a huge fire stick in the middle of the cheesecake. It was pretty wild and very fun. Really nice evening.

It was our first time Lovis. My husband was looking forward to the Sunday night prime rib. BUT, they were out of it by time we got there. He was very disappointed. He ordered the skirt steak as did the rest of us . Delicious and at $25 a great value.

Lovi's offers a really nice range of food over and above just typical Deli fare. Mario, our server, was excellent, there when you needed him but not intrusive, and the food for both my wife and I (her a pastrami sandwich, myself a 4 item omelette) was delicious. Lobby staff were very friendly. I have been here when it was much busier and this was a nice change being a more quiet pre-dinner afternoon time.

PLUS we made our Open Table reservation when we pulled in to the parking lot (we got off the 101 due to traffic and decided to eat at Lovi's)) so it all worked out.

Will definitely return so my wife can have her own omelette instead of stealing 1/4 of mine...

Have been here several times and am enjoying trying out different offerings. Their NY pastrami is so lean and seasoned just right. Loved the stuffed cabbage I had on another occasion. This time I tried the Romanian seasoned skirt steak sandwich. Loved it. There's plenty of variety so everyone should find something to enjoy. The service is very good, the servers are amicable and helpful. Can't wait to go back.

Service was fine. What I was disappointed in was my corned beef sandwich. It was loaded with fat and gristle. When l complained they did nothing about it. I will stick with Brendt's in the future.

Overpriced, portion size on smaller side and poor quality pastrami. Do yourself a favor and drive to Brent's Deli. This place is not in the same universe as Brent's for quality of food, portion size and service.

Going solo at Lovi's in Calabasas and loving my blackened Wild Alaskan Salmon. This is about as good as any Salmon served anywhere! I might also add the servers here are wonderful, friendly and as good as you will find at any restaurant.

I had a reservation for 8pm. My entire party arrived about 15-20 minutes early. They refused to seat us until 8pm even though our table was available and ready. The lame excuse that was given to us was they had another large party that just sat down and didn't want to overwhelm the server. Instead, they kept us standing in the waiting area until 8pm. Seating us and informing us that the server wouldn't be available would have been sufficient. I would fully understand waiting if the table wasn't available, but that was not the case. I have been a frequent patron of Lovi's and didn't appreciate waiting. I will frequent Lovi's less frequently. Other than that, food and service was excellent.

We enjoyed a lovely meal with our friends. You need to know going in that the restaurant is crowded and very noisy. However, if you come knowing and expecting that, you will have a great time. The menu is extensive and offers lots of variety (and many vegetarian options). It was fun and we will be back again!

Food was very good, ordered a deli platter to share, but didn't get enough potato salad or Cole slaw. Also no pickles were served. An extra charge of $3.00 added for ordering meats to be lean. Paid over $30.00.

For what you get, this place is WAY over priced! For lunch, for two people, it was $75.00!!

We get better quality food at Noah's Bagels.

Really. I know that it's in a well to do area, but this is just highway robbery.

Jerry's Deli is high, but not like this.

I could see it if it was closer to fine dining, and/or the price justified the product.

The fact of the matter is, if just doesn't.

The server did her best to make sure that we had everything we needed but the disorganization in the kitchen was impossible to overcome. Food arrived at the wrong time (appetizers with the main course, some dinners arrived while others came much later), and much of it was cold as if it had been sitting waiting to be served for quite some time. Even when it was remade, the quality was adequate at best. The matzo ball was mushy, not fluffy, and my husband's pastrami had a lot more fat than it should. Its prices are also high for a deli. I have been to Lovi's several times now and I'm not going to return. I've given them plenty of opportunities to show me that they can improve, but they haven't done so.

We were there on a very busy evening, and the place was jammed. We had about 10 people in our party. Our reservation was honored on a timely basis. The server was terrific, and very attentive. The food was terrific, with generous portions. The only negative was that they ran out of brisket by 9:00. Not a big deal...and we had a great meal anyway! We love Lovi's!
