Should be called Power Plant View Diner

Breakfast was served in less than 10 minutes after ordering. Crispy fluffy Belgium waffle. Coffee not so great but hot. Free parking.

We went to this diner several months ago. After being seated, we ordered 2 drinks: a soda and a cranberry juice. After the drinks came we placed our orders. Both of the choices we made were not available. I don't remember what they were but we never order anything strange. After looking at the menu to find substitutes for a... More

We've eaten there several times now. Consistent food, generous portions, friendly service. This will become our "go to" diner.

So they fast! That is amassing. That is why 4 stars in review. Food nothing special at all, i have mostly eggplant parm, it is execrable. All other food is much to desire for, but it is a diner after all. Hard to do better as average at that speed. There is no river view at Hudson, do not take... More

River view diner is a Greek owned diner located within a few blocks from Palisades General Hospital. It has been in business for decades. They have very good breakfasts, lunch and dinners. The portions are large and they have sides included with the price of the meal. It is a family owned business and the daughters of the principal owner... More

Went here with a group of people who are all tired of paying the exorbitant restaurant prices. My friends have been patrons for years. The food is plentiful, the menu extensive, the service is very good and the atmosphere is nice even for a diner. I am not going to tell you that the food is exceptional but this is... More

TERRIBLE FOOD and service. The waitress (older woman, skinny, short blonde hair) was very bitter, impatient, and rolled her eyes at every one of her customers. I asked for a GREEK SALAD with grilled chicken breast, it was hard to chew on every piece because of the fat in it. The salad they served me isnt like any other greek... More

Was there yesterday for lunch with my daughter. Awful! They've raised prices and reduced portion sizes. On top of that they've changed policy on soda, no more free refills and the new glasses are smaller. Also, it seemed to me, they have watered down the syrup mix. Didn't taste good to me, For a cheeseburger, turkey club and of course... More

The River View Diner has become my new Sunday breakfast spot. Food is good, have flat screens around the dining room, and if you're feeling crazy you can hit the bar. What more could you ask for?
