Only decent diner in the area; pleasantly surprised

I'm not one to care for 'theme' diners, but thankfully the place isn't overdone like a tourist trap. Acquaintance had a pesto chicken/mozarella panini which looked and tasted great; I had to test the place out with their signature burger, the Russell's Belly Buster Burger. This is not for the faint... read more

This is our new go-to diner! It's not your typical diner, definitely a step above! The menu has the regular diner foods: burgers, salads, eggs, etc. But many of the dishes have been elevated to be a bit more gourmet. The prices are a little higher than most diners in the area but the quality and quantity of the food... More

My family and I had breakfast here last month. I couldn't believe they wanted to eat here because of the terrible food we were served when the diner originally opened. I swore to never go back. My sister insisted we go for breakfast claiming it is fabulous, and had recently been frequently dining here. She is a foodie so of... More

If you like diners , Gotham City Diner is a good place to eat. The menu is big, the prices are reasonable, and the service is good. The diner is right on the main drag and convenient to shopping malls and hotels.

I used to order from this diner almost every day for over 2 years. I would order breakfast and sometimes dinner at my office. It was nice to have a diner that delivered. After numerous times of getting the order wrong ( as well as food that is just barely average) I called and spoke to the manager. He seemed... More

I came here with a friend for a quick dinner. We were seated promptly and the menu had a wide array of options. I found it to be one of the more affordable diners in Bergen County, when you compare the prices to other diners in the area. I had silver dollar pancakes and chocolate milk and everything came out... More

While I would have previously rated Gotham one of the best restaurants in Bergen County, it is unfortunate the quality of service and food has drastically declined in recent months. Perhaps it could be the lack of management oversight or just their inability to keep excellent staff. During my last visit (yesterday), the lettuce in my salad was obviously on... More

Our Go-To Diner in Fair Lawn. We would go at least once a week, the Breakfast special is a great deal and not to be missed. You can't go wrong with perennial Diner favorites like a CheeBeeDee (Cheeseburger Deluxe) or a Gyro platter. Can you please open up a West Coast branch in Silicon Valley?
