    Very large, spacious and well-appointed restaurant, bar and deli. Menu offers a broad range of options for breakfast (brunch), lunch and dinner. Restaurant is very clean and service is very good. First time diner based on seeing positive comments on social media. Will definitely return.

    Our server was wonderful. She offered suggestions, she was funny, & very fast. The food was just what we needed before a long drive home and the environment was perfect!

    Terrific dinner! We enjoyed the brisket dinner, Caesar salad and a few sides. The bagel chips are outrageously good. The brisket dinner was a generous portion, enough for lunch the next day. Our server Rachel and Jay were awesome. They took such good care of us and were so friendly and accommodating. We will be back soon.

    It’s great to have such a nice deli in the valley. The owner is always very friendly there saying hello and asking how our meal is.

    We arrived at 5:30 PM on Tuesday in the summer and no one greeted us and when we went to the desk no one really understood that we had made a reservation after we had explained that we didn’t make a reservation it took about another five or eight minutes for somebody to seat us and there really wasn’t even anybody in the restaurant at the time. The staff seemed a little perplexed on how to accommodate the customers. After we were seated we did get someone to come to our table to bring us some water but when we question some of the items on the menu they had no idea what we were talking about. The staff needs a little more training on the items that are not familiar to them. For example they didn’t know what Kiska was. Other than that the food was really yummy we had the tuna melt and the turkey melt with french fries and sweet potato fries. Our server was very good. Overall it was a pleasant experience and we will return.

    We decided to go for our first visit to the restaurant during "Restaurant Week". We ordered the 3 course meal to be able to sample the offerings. The sandwiches, onion rings and matzoh ball soup were outstanding. The cole slaw was over dressed for our liking. Unfortunately the apple strudel, though great quality, was served straight from the refrigerator. This appeared to be a service issue. The restaurant was short handed and those working seemed to be inexperienced. The owner of the restaurant came by the table at least twice and it was great to talk to him. He knows delis.

    Excellent food, service and ambiance. This by no means looks like your fathers Deli! It is Modern fresh and inviting, but by far the home run was the warm and personable service from the hostess, wait staff and owner. A fabulous experience, highly recommend we will be back, often.

    J’s Deli is fairly new to the Coachella Valley. This is an excellent kosher-style deli. Had the pastrami on rye which was outstanding. The meat had great flavor and was fatty enough to satisfy and maintain great taste. Server was attentive without be obtrusive.

    We have brought so many friends to check out J’s Deli as we enjoy it so much. Every employee is well trained and so professional, happy and attentive. The menu is fantastic and everything is available from open to close so breakfast for dinner or dinner for breakfast is never an issue. Give it a try, I think you will really enjoy the experience.

    My mother and I went here for the first time a week earlier and were so impressed we decided to return for restaurant week. I ordered off the special lunch menu, my mother did not. Once again, the food met and exceeded our expectations. Plentiful, fresh, well prepared and presented. The only short coming was the service that was slow and we seem to have been forgotten on two different occasions waiting for water, or a set up, etc. and then the check. I am attributing this to being shorthanded as is common place these days so we took it in stride.

    Fresh bagel chips and pickles on the table (bagel chips still warm!). The expected deli menu. The black pastrami Reuben was excellent! And definitely check out the bakery cases. Everything is beautiful! Great service and ample parking.

    We were very impressed with the restaurant it was a very lovely restaurant and so was the outdoor patio. And a big beautiful bar as well! The menu was so extensive. We loved our food and the service was awesome. It’s actually the nicest Jewish deli I’ve ever seen and I’m so happy to have it here in Palm desert. We will be frequent diners for sure!
