In all my many years of living in Santa Monica, I've never had a more horrid experience at a restaurant than at Izzy's Deli on Wilshire Blvd. Yes, even more painful than an evening at The Viceroy.
The food servers are unaccomodating; the manager/cashier handles food with his bare hands after changing money; and, the food is disgusting. There is no redeeming quality about this place. Even their coffee is bad.
I can't believe this place is on the same street as some of the best restaurants on the Westside.
How do they stay in business?
Santa Monica needs another 24 hour restaurant, because this place is not cutting it.
