Editorial review from GrubHub 8/24/2013

restaurant didn't follow my instructions. Cinnamon french toast tasted like it was a frozen one I could have bought at a supermarket for cheaper. Reuben was soggy and greasy. French fries were over cooked and old. Never ordering from them again. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 6/16/2013

Took my husband there for Father's Day breakfast. Absolutely horrible. I ordered Eggs Benedict. The sauce was orange and thick, the supposed Canadian bacon was thick and charred, the muffin was burned. His Belgian waffle was good, however the breakfast sausage was a horrible shade of yellow. He took 1 bite and sent it back. Overall, a horrible breakfast. more

Editorial review from GrubHub 5/7/2013

The delivery guy here is the rudest and have had terrible experiences. If you get this middle guy with blonde hair you may have the same issues. The last I ordered he rang the door bell 3 times and left within seconds with my food on the floor. He has came with no change when I gave him a tip and said the extra will be for next time. He use to refuse to come up because he said he couldn't find parking. The food is great but I have had at least 5 issues with the delivery, same guy everytime, if you want great food but terrible delivery experience everytime more

Best Matzo Ball soup in LA 11/18/2010

Let?s start with the noodles. Instead of overwhelming the bowl with larger noodles that tend to get in the way, Fromin?s serves up uber-thin shards like the frayed ends of a comfy pair of blue jeans. more

You call this a Reuben? 8/5/2010

Maybe I'm spoiled, but this was one of the worst corned beef ruebens ever. The meat was lean, but almost tasteless. The portion was not very generous, potato salad and cole slaw were awful. I expected something like this from Denny's. And who said they were cheap? Is $12.95 cheap? The waitress was very nice and the service was good. Problem was with the food. more

Niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice Pastrami! 2/11/2010

once the food appeared it was a lunch special made in heaven: 1/2 Sandwich and a Bowl Of Soup for $11+tip. Oh yeah, they threw in coleslaw as well, which was, as a coleslaw connoisseur, I would say it was pretty good. On my plate also were BOTH kinds of pickles, the old (well done) ones and the new (rare) ones. Niiiiice touch that signifies the authenticity of this establishment.. Pros: the matzah ball soup vas pretty tasty Cons: Service is a little slow more

0 for 1. NO reason to go again. 12/7/2009

got the pastrami (When in rome, ehh)? awful. had a taste of a friends corned beef hash (brutal), and my wife's salad (horrrrrrible). never again. I had such high expectations b/c the place was packed and came highly recommended from self-proclaimed, ""deli master""... Pros: Only went the once, pehaps I got them on a BAD night? Cons: the food more

Loved the pastrami sandwich I had here, more

Best breakfast anywhere 6/4/2008

For all those, who can't start a day without a good breakfast, this is a fabulous spot! Pros: Food, service, kid and family friendly, good for romatic breakfast or brunch Cons: decoration colors chosen more

Best lox in Los Angeles 4/13/2008

I rotate among the various delis in Los Angeles and consitently come back to Fromin's when I'm craving a bagel, lox and cream cheese. They know how to give you a shmear and the lox is just perfection. Salty but not too much. Smooth and silky texture. I can't really attest to their other foods since is the only thing I order but others who come with me and order other things have also been very satisfied. The staff there is also very friendly and my coffee cup stays full. Pros: Friendly staff, lots of seating, plenty of parking, great food. Cons: If you insist on having a hip decor, you will be disappointed. more

Finally -- A Good, Cheap Deli! 10/16/2005

I love a good deli, but in LA, they're all so darn costly! Froman's has the best food, I've found, and the prices are still very reasonable. I recommend the chicken taco salad -- not what you'd expect from a Jewish deli. Pros: Great Food, Great Prices Cons: Generic Decor more

Forget about Fromin's 4/18/2004

After hearing good things, we ordered Fromin's for a late business dinner and the food was downright terrible. The chicken my salad was undercooked and resembled rubber, and the salad dressing was all oil and very little flavor. The other entrees we ordered did not impress at all. Not only was the food bad, but it took 3 phone calls to get the order right. Lastly, we ordered chocolate cake and were given some sort of brown liquid substance in a cup--yuck! Don't waste your time or money at Fromin's. Cons: , Bad Service more

Save yourself the trip 3/22/2004

On my last visit, we were seated right away, our order was taken, and then the hell began. Our waitress failed to bring half of our food and disappeared for the next 45 min. My order was wrong and iceberg lettuce on my pathetic salad was brown. I asked repeatedly for someone to get our waitress, but she did not show until we finally decided to pay and get out of there. When we pointed out that she had forgotten some of our food, she did not apologize, but only offered to wrap it up to go. I called the owner to complain later that day and he yelled at me, saying that it was my own fault and he had remebered seeing me and said I was ""gazing into my boyfriend's eyes for an hour."" I guess no one ever told him The Customer is always right. Pros: big parking lot Cons: , horrific service, rude staff more
