This was a nice clean establishment that was near our hotel and close to the Times Square action! Their Buffalo Wings were great and they had good polenta! I recommend their pigs in a blanket and their Pastrami Mac n Chesse!

We were starving when we happened upon this place. The menu was strange for a diner, but settled on the Chinese Chicken Salad. It was massive and quite delicious. No kids menu available, but a few options work for them. Very overpriced for a diner, but appears to be trying for an upscale diner experience.

A couple of Saturday's ago we had brunch here. It was terrific! My french toast was not run of the mill. It was much, much better. The service was really good as was the atmosphere. Restaurant is a bit pricey but worth it.

We have been fortunate enough to visit New York in the past and at that time, we found the Brooklyn Diner and couldn’t wait to return when we were in New York again this year. The ambience, attire of the staff and the whole décor is amazing and although we didn’t eat here, it is definitely worth stopping for a... More

I ordered the turkey sandwich which I believe must have had a whole turkey in it. The bread was really nice and soft and the chips were really good. The food was a little expensive but the atmosphere was very calm which was nice considering it was so close to Times Sq.

Tables were covered in white cloths and butcher paper; cloth napkins. Nice atmosphere.Service was good, with friendly, professional staff, but food was average. My daughter had the three cheese omelet and I had the Vernon Brown, egg white omelet. Coffee was good. Not the best dining experience but certainly not the worst!

Got here intending to snack after shopping Times Square but when faced with the menu, we all ordered entrees. Husband said one of best burgers ever. I had the diner's self-proclaimed best Reuben, which was very good, and although $18, was enough for 2 meals. They closed for the night shortly after we arrived but never made us feel rushed.

Looking for an out of the box place to eat before leaving NYC. The place is very nice inside & clean. Has a bar inside as well. Old 50's style vibe. menu is moderately priced. The pastrami mac & cheese was delish! fettucine pasta baked with cheese & pastrami bites. Also chicken cesar salad was good. service was good just... More

My 13-year-old son and I stumbled upon this restaurant after a long touristy day in NYC. We hadn't eaten since brunch and it was late, 9 p.m. or so. Our hotel (Casablanca, awesome hotel!) was near this restaurant and my son and I had been walking all around trying to find a place to just fill our tummies simply, inexpensively,... More

Stopped in for a late evening dessert. Wait staff was really nice even though we weren't ordering (and paying for!) a large meal. I had lemon meringue and my husband had chocolate pudding pie. Both were very good. We had to leave quickly and they got the check ready in a flash.
