Since 1928, this L.A. standby has been offering 24-hour casual dining in the heart of the Fairfax district. You'll find the food here authentic and the people-watching amazing. Everyone from The Wallflowers to K.D. Lang and Madonna has stopped in to eat here. Favorites include the in-house pickled corned beef pastrami, the hot corned beef, the tender beef brisket and the many offerings from the in-house bakery. Next door is the Kibitz Room, where there's live music most nights. A full bar and decent wines work well with the food.
Sorry folks, but Canter's has come down in the world. Unless you are lucky to get a really good waiter/waitress you are going to have a very so-so meal. Most of the time the matzo ball soup comes out tepid, instead of hot...if you want veggies and chicken in it you will have to ask for them and pay extra. The coffee is just bad. Unless you order the Jewish Deli dishes you will be disappointed, anyway. The potatoe pancakes are awful...heavy, dull, and mushy instead of light and crispy... the blintzes are just okay, but rarely come out warm.
Also the chicken broth is way over-salted.
All the deli meats are very fatty (pastrami, corned beef, etc)...they could easily be trimmed a bit more.
I once ordered a smoked white fish there and it was so fatty I could not eat it. it was halucious.
The best thing about Canter's is it's open 24/7 (except for the Jewish High holy days). Also you will see all sorts of interesting people (bands, actors, comedians) eating there after midnight.
Also the bakery is pretty good. You will enjoy the great variety of treats there.
I just want to know why they advertise how you get two hours free parking and when you get there they charge you after a hour and a half? Explanation please? Look on the web-site it says two hours.. Hmm.. Such a great place and mis advertisement... They also do not display that it is only fifteen minutes for pickup please show me where it says that? Besides that I think it is way overpriced and they are greedy.
Canter's rivals any deli in NYC ... and may be even better than some!
Extensive menu. 24/7 food availability; reduced hours for full bar service.
Excellent value for the price, as all lunch and dinner entrees include an appetizer (or soup), potato, vegetable, bread and dessert (ice cream or sherbet). Selections range from $12 (spaghetti) to $17 (salmon), with almost everything imaginable in between. The wide variety of breakfast offerings have enormous portions and are also reasonably priced. The potato pancakes shine! Only the fish platters seem relatively expensive ($20-ish), but the quality is exceptional and the pricing competitive with other delis and/or sushi places.
The bakery and deli counter offer great items to go: sky-high pies, crisp/chewy bagels and oversized pastry, as well as tender meats and tasty salads and sides by the pound. If chopped liver is your thing, Canter's is great. If not, be sure to try the tuna salad, sliced brisket, or matzo ball soup.
Wait staff is knowledgeable about the menu and eager to make your dining experience a good one. Decor is totally 60s, with padded vinyl booths and framed newspaper clippings about Canter's history. Parking is available in the small lot or in metered spaces along Fairfax.
With so many options, you're certain to leave full and happy.
I grew up with Canters and it had been 10 years since I've eaten there. It's still the same delicious deli food. The brisket, matzo ball soup, herring, and other stuff is excellent. It's also a great value at $12 for a full dinner. We were there Christmas day and it was packed. Still service was excellent.
This place is great. I love the food and the atmosphere. The service is good and it's always packed with people no matter if it's 6pm or 3 am. Even when there are lots of people the service is great and fast...Enjoy!
