Nice burgers and OK service/

We had hamburger there. The service was OK though they didn't serve us water upfront but only when we got our order. The burgers were delicious and we liked them The French fries though were soft and not very nice. At a hole the place was just next door to our hotel (Casablanca) and we enjoy a... read more

Have eaten here on two different occasions. The first time I ordered the Spaghetti and Meatball and it was amazing! It was a large helping with a giant meatball!! The second time I wanted to order the same thing but they changed the menu so instead I got the spaghetti and meat sauce. It had chopped up spicy Italian sausage... More

The food was delicious. I had the bacon cheeseburger and my daughter had the veggie burger. Probably the best bacon cheeseburger I've ever eaten. Mouthwatering. My daughter's veggie burger was so big she couldn't finish it. The burgers came with fries and a pickle. BTW the fries were excellent, too.Great atmosphere and clean. The waiter was friendly.

The food was excellent, and the staff was absolutely wonderful! We were treated like family and returned for a second evening because of the great first time.

This was a wonderful diner. The breakfast was fabulous. I had a Greek egg whites omelette and my husband had cinnamon raisin pecan French toast. The polenta that came with my eggs was a delightful surprise. The coffee was very very good.. Service-excellent.

This is one of my fav restaurants that I visit in New York. Not being here for 2 years I couldn't wait to go back. When we walked in to the restaurant we were greeted by a man in a suit on a phone talking about reservations. He had his back to us and didn't turn around to even acknowledge... More

We went here after our broadway play for dessert. Service was very slow but the quality of the desserts made up for it. The Coconut Cake and Cheesecake were outstanding. Great atmosphere with friendly staff.

A great place for a mid town breakfast. The French Toast and the Blueberry pancakes, OJ and coffee were excellent! The atmosphere is not really that of an old diner, although the music does help with that suggestion. The staff is professional and attentive. With all the breakfast competition in Mid Town, this is definitely a place to return.

We were in NYC for Valentine's Day and didn't really care what we are. Walking around the day before I saw this place so I suggested it. We went in and there was a 30 minute wait but empty tables. We went back in the cold and almost walked off. Instead we hung out and went back. They were out... More

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.
