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.

Bad service, food takes forever, even appetizers that only need heating. An example of that are the knishes and boy, were they dry. The potato inside was grainy and seemed like powder. I've also had the chopped liver and it didn't look or tasted fresh. They will give you a generous portion but only with two slices of bread, when you will need at least six of them (if you order more bread, they will be added to your check as "side of bread"). I guess the only thing Miller's is ok, is for its sandwiches. They have a wide range of options but I would rate them 3 out of 5. I've given this place several opportunities since it's very close to my house and I do love Delis, but it's disappointed me over and over again. I guess I'll just have to learn that it''s not very good.

I had the tuna melt meal and some chocolate babka for dessert. Both were oh so yummy! I've never lived on the east coast and have only been to NYC once so can't speak to its authenticity, but for a California girl, it was a nice and different treat.

*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.

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.

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.
