It is rare to get authentic Jewish-style deli outside the East Coast, but Canters is a delightful surprise . From the garlicky kosher pickles to the huge meat sandwiches, Canters matches anything in NYC or Philly. They have traditional Jewish fare such as matzah ball...More

Canters isn’t only restaurant, but a delicatessen and a bar as well. Being in L.A.. downtown area, we had doubts about the parking, but we were told, that the restaurant has its parking lot, that is closed to the public. It was easy to find...More

Classic Deli menu with a lot of options. I was here at 5 am and the staff were cleaning the place - it is spotless. Everything was tasty and fresh. Great service.

Thank God for Canters Deli. Our wayward family had gathered for Christmas in Hollywood, which was a great experience. The hotels, shops, and theme parks went all out to deck their environs the previous week, but shuttered their businesses for the holiday. Come the Big...More

My sister came down from northern California, so our sister, who lives in Los Angeles, and I decided we should treat her to lunch at Canter's. Our server, Stacy, was very pleasant and efficient.

I love a deli and Center's doesn't disappoint. It is located in a very busy neighbourhood but what I really like is they have a parking lot next door where you can park for 1 1/2 hours free of charge while you enjoy your meal....More
