So I've written reviews for here before… *Water in my lap* yeah… anyway… We came back last night. No one was there... On a Saturday night…maybe 2-3 other tables. So odd! So the woman behind us complained that her chicken was pink. The manager came over and tried to give her some story about it being "grill marks" OKAYYYY no…... More

Loved it, the food was good, the staff a bit bland, the beer seemed to be Flat which also didn't seem to phase the bar tender. However the food reminds me of home cooking so i was happy. they also have free local delivery which is great.

I am not a big fans of diners. I understand they fill a popular, much needed niche, etc. -- so I am not a critic per se, but I just don't go out of my way to go to a diner unless the need is there (quick bite, variety, convenient, etc.). That said, I do find the need somewhat frequently... More

Stopped in for breakfast and was very happy with the variety of options and the food came out piping hot! We had the french toast and the Belgium waffles with sausage and ham. Everything was very tasty and would recommend it. Don't know what else is good but if breakfast is any indication, I wouldn't hesitate to go. What is... More

Prices are manageable even for those on a budget. They chopped salads are incredible and we love their chefs daily specials most especially the .tuesday Stuffed... More

Although we live in a nearby town, this was our first visit and wont be our last. The menu is extensive and includes options not always seen at other diners such as a Gelato section and a design your own salad section. BTW, the Nutella gelato was amazing. The portions are generous and the quality is good. Gotham is not... More

As a New Jersey native,I have grown up with the prefab Jersey diners.Don't get me wrong,they are a nice part of living here.Gotham City is a huge step above,from gourmet dinners to a bar to a gelato area,makes this place anything but typical.The quality of the food is always a step above also.

It's a place for tasty food. However it was my first visit and Sunday brunch time was quite crowded. While we were seated without a wait, we were placed in a corner near the exit door. There are two dining rooms and the first room is crowded and not particularly attractive. The second room is much more appealing but unfortunately... More

I probably order out from Gotham twice to three times a week. Their food is always good. Their salmon is the best. Their salads which you design yourself are incredible. Their baked sweet potatoes are delicious. I love Gotham.
