We returned several times to the Murray Hill Diner. The food is fresh, the coffee is excellent and the service is efficient. The prices are reasonable. We had breakfast, afternoon coffee and bagels, and dinner at the Murray Hill Diner, as it was close to our hotel and we enjoyed the food.

Enjoyed a real home style meal here with my daughter during a trip to New York. I couldn't resist ordering the steak, which was anything but simple. It came, surprisingly, all on its own on one plate, swimming in its own delicious juices. The sides, which were generous, came on their own plate. It was quaint and homely, but as... More

We as a family had breakfast here twice , the food is very well presented , tasty and in NYC reasonable value .The plus was we were served by a very very pleasant young lady who's name evades me but her smile and pleasant outlook was brilliant. Keep up the great work.

We ate here for breakfast one morning as it was close to the Affinia Dumont we were staying in. Typical American diner with good menu selection, excellent breakfast and very friendly. We had a 1 year old with us who also enjoyed his visit. Would recommend to anyone in the area.

This diner is clean, the staff friendly, and the food is delicious with a good variety. We ate a big breakfast here several times during our week stay. Close to the Ramada Eastside.

Extremely disappointed after being away for a couple of years. This was my first thought after landing in NYC. After taking a bus and walking several blocks I was there! Staff the same and good to see them. I ordered an egg and bacon sandwich, easy, right? Chewy roll, the bacon was so thin and small it would have disappeared... More

Had a great meal on Friday, went back Sunday but closed early. (could not see opening times in window) Did not bother again, went to Luckys on 1st Ave, open 24hrs and just as good.

Was convenient to our hotel and very reasonably priced. Basic diner fare. Did not have any gluten free options, made due with eggs over potatoes but would have liked gluten free toast. Kept the coffee coming and was a fun people watch place.
