Always reliable.

This is one of our favorite Midtown breakfast cafes. Good food, good service, and right on 42nd and 9th. Winter or summer it is always reliable.

Enjoyed breakfast here the other morning, French toast really hit the mark but the atmosphere was lacking somewhat despite it being Memorial Weekend and everywhere else busy. Great central location but staff were a touch stern in their approach, I know we are visitors but we know the gratuity rules here and don't need it pushed in our faces!!

Really friendly staff. We had dinner here on our first night staying at the Yotel as this diner is one block away. Really enjoyed it, reasonably priced and nice food. Also ate lunch here another day. Again no complaints. Would recommend.

We chose this place because of it's convenience to the Kirk Theater. We were not all that impressed with the other choices in the area so we went with the Theater Row Diner. The menu is large and it seemed to be a trendy place. The service was ok. The waitress was polite and provided us with what we needed.... More

My boyfriend and I were in NYC for a long weekend and were meeting up with some friends for brunch in the area we were staying in. They recommended the Theater Row Diner so that's where we went. It was very busy which is always a good sign. We got a table right away and had coffee and water in... More

I eat there whenever I'm town in for an event at the Javit's Centre and the food is very good an priced fair. Service is a bit on the slow side but outside of that give this place a visit and you won't be disappointed.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
