I have been a customer for about 3 years coming twice a week. The previous owners were very nice but the diner need some attention and face lift. New owners came in May 2014 and have dedicated making changes to bring life back to the diner. New outdoor lighting, flowers and clean up of the grounds have made an amazing... More

It's a shame because I work so close to this diner and I'd like to go there for lunch sometimes. In 6 years I've been there 4 times and each time it's disappointing. Breakfast is a fairly safe bet (eggs, pancakes, etc). For lunch I had greek salad that had a bland dressing. Then I tried the moussaka special another... More

Don't know what happened to this diner. It used to be very good, but after my recent visit, I will not return to this restaurant again. We were charged extra for such minor things such as lettuce & tomato on a chicken sandwich. When I questioned this charge (after a dinner for 5 people) because there was nothing on the... More

Up from Florida to visit family and friends, couldn't wait to get to a NY diner for breakfast, the sign at the front door "wanted: chef and servers" should had been our first warning. My wife ordered french toast with crisp bacon, french toast was burnt and the bacon was undercooked, I ordered an egg white veggie omelet with home... More

The Borowski family are loyal patrons of the Paradise Diner of Hauppauge, NY. Great food, friendly owners and servers and reasonably priced. We occasionally also get their holiday meals as a base to bring home and then, add some of our family favorites. GREAT DINER!

Food is fresh, simple, bountiful. Service is friendly - aneighborhood place where the owners and waitstaff know all the regulars and make the new visitor feel like a regular. I suggest hamburger lover's order the juicy Lucy and i also love the breakfast menu - especially Sunday breakfast.

Every time I come back to New York, I feel the nostalgia in having at least 1 meal at a NY diner & this was just what one would expect from a diner... a huge menu, huge portions busy & friendly atmosphere...

The restaurant is very clean. The food is always fresh. They bake the majority of their desserts. The owners are very friendly and know people by their names. We've been going here ever since they opened and have never been dissatisfied. The staff are friendly and competent. Our favorite server is Debbie. She always makes me laugh. You should give... More

Hot roast beef sandwich, mashed, creamed spinach, salad & diet coke $17.00. Staff very friendly, helpful and welcoming. I was so lost when I went in there to eat. Hostess told me how to get back to the road I needed to go to. I'd definitely go back again.

We liked the extensive menu and well prepared breakfast. The wait staff was lacking in detail- no jelly for toast, forgot water etc. There were floating staff to make up for that. It was reasonably crowded with tables turning over quickly. Food was served quickly.
