Started with the chicken noodle soup. It was good. Lots of noodles. The coleslaw was finely chopped. The sour pickles were just the way I remember them. The brisket was also good. There was also French fries. They were not the home made ones that I like. The chicken Caesar was good. Plenty of chicken. Chicken could have been less... More

I visited this restaurant based on the good reviews of trip advisor, we were a group of 10 very hungry people. Upon our entrance, we saw a fishtank, which was overcrowded with 3 layers of live lobsters, one toppled over the other. What was most horrible to see was that there was 1 lobster eating another one... and the latter... More

The food is scrumptious, the waitress service is impeccable and the atmosphere just as it should be for a diner. We had breakfast here and we were fit to burst, the portions were huge definitely got our moneys worth. So much so that we ended up not spending anything on lunch as we were full from breakfast. If only I... More

Belaire is a well known diner in Astoria(aka Long Island City). It is hands down the best diner in the area and has been for many years. Food is delicious, service is great and there is ample parking - always a plus in the city! Prices are very reasonable too.

I like Belaire Diner, good place, fast service and generous food portions. It is great that they are 24hrs and have their own parking lot. When they get their calamari in fresh that day, man let me tell you amazing! I know fried calamari from a diner? But it taste that of a 5 star restaurant. I will definitely give... More

Typical meal, nothing special. It's a diner so it's nice to sit and chat with friends and family. Very accommodating with big groups.

3 1/2 stars. It's a diner. They have some intersting choices, (some that I haven't seen at other diners) which is a plus and I like the little muffins they put out during breakfast/brunch so you have something to nibble on while you make your decison on what to eat. If my fiance was reviewing this, he'd probably score it... More
