Smoked fish, matzo balls & pastrami make up the traditional Jewish-deli menu at this NYC-style shop.- Google
"Their matzo ball soup IS comfort food."
"The macaroni salad it came with on the side was yummy too."

t is with great regret that I'm writing this review. I am a Chicago transplant and my husband is a New Yorker. We currently live in Santa Cruz and have been enthusiastic fans of this place for many many years. Ever single time we visit SF we have had at least one meal at Millers, often more. Through the years it has really done wonders to satisfy our Jewish Deli cravings....yes, not as good as in our childhood Delis, but the best around. This weekend we once again visited and were horribly disappointed. Since we are "regulars" we barely glanced at the menu before ordering. Unfortunately both items we ordered are no longer on the pickled tongue and no hard salami. We were told that the menu was changed just 2 weeks ago. After glancing at the new menu we noticed that many of the things we have always enjoyed are gone......not even any half-sour pickes. We ordered the 1/2 sandwich/soup combo. My husband ordered chopped liver and he said it was OK. I ordered hot corned beef and was disappointed with it. The matzo ball soup that came with the combo was salty and served in a bowl that was so tiny that other than the Matzo Ball there was not room for anything else. I ordered an extra slice of bread with my half sandwich as I always do. In the past the sandwiches served there have always had so much meat that I would "create" another half sandwich with the overflowing meat. This time the corned beef was sliced too thickly and the portion was much smaller than in the past. I definitely did not need the extra piece of bread (for which I was charged $1.00) as there was much less meat than I have ever had served to me here in the past . Given the prices they charge and the portion size I have always been used to here, I was very disappinted. The cole slaw was tasty, but it did not taste or look like it used to. On the plus side, service was friendly and as prompt as ever. The bottom line is that we have always gone out of our way to eat here in spite of the difficultly parking and no alcohol served at the restaurant....but I don't know if we will be back. I understand the need to "streamline" a menu, but in our case the absence of our favorite dishes, the smaller menu, the smaller portion size, increased prices/less value, and the inconsistantcy of the food makes it unlikely that we will be back. Maybe we will give it one more try, but we will not go out of our way to be back. We are mourning it's seems that now the closest good Jewish Deli food is in either Los Angeles or Palm Springs.

As a NY Jew, I can only give 3 stars. Latkes were good but not crispy enough. Matzo ball soup was tasteless. Nothing like Mom's. Pastrami was too dry (not even close to Katz). White fish salad isn't as good as store bought at Costco. Also tried biscuits and gravy which were too soft and soggy. The black and white cookie was really legit though. Overall Wise Sons is definitely better.

*4.5 stars* I hate nothing more than to admit that I went to a restaurant because of Guy Fieri and it's probably worse that I even watch "Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives," but I've been looking for a decent East Coast pastrami sandwich in SF that can measure up to the greats in New York (Kat's, 2nd Avenue). Miller's definitely delivers. The place is welcoming, the servers are incredibly friendly, and the food is awesome. -------------- FOOD: Grilled Pastrami Sandwich = The grilled pastrami sandwich at Miller's East Coast Deli may not be up to the impossibly high standard of Kat's Deli, but it's pretty damn close, and that's speaking volumes. The rye bread was perfectly grilled, the pastrami was tender and fatty (could've used a bit more though), and the cole slaw gave it just right amount of sweetness. I could eat this sandwich all day. The Chief Sandwich (Pastrami + Corned Beef) = Good, but the corned beef isn't as tender and fatty as the pastrami, so it kind of made the sandwich a bit bland. I'm all about the pastrami here though. Macaroni Salad = The Macaroni Salad that comes with the sandwich is incredible here. Not too much mayo, perfect al dente macaroni (I can't believe I'm calling the macaroni in a macaroni salad "al dente"), and just perfectly sweet. Chicken Soup w/ Matzo Ball = Not a huge fan of matzo ball, but this is definitely one of the better matzo balls I've had in my day. I always found them to be too bland and this is really no exception, but I've definitely had worse. -------------- I'd say this is the best East Coast-style grilled pastrami sandwich in SF. It's not New York, but it's amazing for SF and that's good enough for me.

Very good pastrami. You definitely come here for the pastrami. Worth a try.

...even though I think I'm still full from the Astro hoagie (a towering, savoury combination of pastrami, sweet-hot mustard, melty Swiss, red onion, and tomato), I find myself craving Miller's East Coast Deli's latkes. I scored a bite or two of K's when we ate there, and they were delicious: crispy on the outside and perfect when paired with applesauce. Although delis have cultural cache as fast-paced places where service is effective if not friendly, happily, the folks at Miller's were both friendly and knowledgeable. Growing up on the Canadian prairies meant that I learned about East Coast deli food later than most, and viewed knishes as a larger, baked version of a perogy - but am happy to be making up for lost time. Woefully, there were no knishes left at the time we visited, though the considerable size of my Astro and M's pastrami Philly meant that we both took part of our sandwiches home, and might have barely dented them had we started with a knish or two. (For those with smaller appetites, plate sharing is easy to request and a small charge.)

Tons of selection here! Took me awhile to choose what I wanted, but the sandwich I finally chose was great. I ended up with the Deviled Egg Deli Sandwich on wheat, and it was regular egg salad (not sure why it implied that it was made with deviled eggs, maybe it's just the name), and it was huge, and delicious. The macaroni salad it came with on the side was yummy too. Huge portion, had half for lunch, will probably finish the other half for dinner. Cute seating area in the back, would be a nice lunch break next time.

Best pastrami reuben outside of New York City. Big portions usually enough to share. Their pizza is actually quite tasty cooked in a coal oven.

Miller's East Coast Deli., talk about a place I have mixed feelings about. If they would hire just one person to keep the tables bused then I could rationalize giving them 5 stars because where they excel in food they lack in service. They tend to have 2 or so servers they are over whelmed during lunch hours which makes getting a table, check and having your order taken an ordeal. But if you can deal with the inept service you will be then be able to bask in some amazing food. Love the Big Fish Platter here , with 2 bagels and an assortment of fish this is a great dish for 2 or 1 with leftovers, love their Smoked Sturgeon, Whitefish and Lox. Yummy Appetizers like the Latkes Great Sandwiches made with NY Deli Bread. And end the meal with something like a Black & White Cookie. Note: if you order the Hot Plates just make sure to ask how long the wait might be, they came out very very slowly during lunch time.
