We have been back to the Derby and will continue to return. The food is fantastic. Service could improve a bit. Love the outdoor feeling for lunches. Had a great time in the evening with the piano music, band and girl with the fiddle. Such fun. Keep up the good work....!!

They don't know how to serve deli meats. There was way too much fat on the Corned Beef as well as the Pastrami. My daughter and myself went home and had terrible upset stomachs. I don't believe that meat was bad...It was that there was way too much fat!!! The service was excellent...the waiter was polite, attentive, and accommodating!!! The quality of the deli food was definitely lacking!!! As a child my father owned a Jewish Deli in Belmont Shores and San Pedro, back in the 50's. I was raised around deli food that's why it's so hard to find a good one. Derby Deli needs someone that can guide that restaurant to be a great deli. There are only a few really good deli's in Southern California!!!

The food is fresh and delicious! The indoor/outdoor seating is great, especially on a nice evening. Listening to the piano man was a lot of fun too!

We were there recently on a Thursday night. We had a slight wait of about fifteen to twenty minutes. Once we were seated, we ordered. It took one hour and fifteen minutes to get our order. The food was good, but there is no excuse for that wait and there are a lot of other places that have similar cuisine with far superior service. WE WILL NEVER GO BACK!!!!

The food was yummy but the main reason I bought the Groupon was for the Dueling Piano show; however, I was disappointed. It wasn't because the show was bad or anything but instead because I didn't get to see it. I called and asked when the show would start on the upcoming Tuesday and I was told 7:30 so I made reservations for 7:30. We got there, ate, and left at around 8:45. The show was just about ready to start right when we were leaving so it was very disappointing. Like I said, the first was good but I was a little upset with the information I was given and the fact that it was 20 miles away, so I probably won't go back unless I'm in the area and I'm hungry.

Food was very good with large portions. We went in the afternoon but would like to go back in the evening with the dueling pianos.
