Got here about 8 am on a Friday morning and it wasn't very crowded at all. Seems like a total locals place, as they seemed to know a good number of people coming in and ordering. Food was really good and the portion sizes are large enough to satisy even the hungriest. They have a good selection of omelets, waffles,... More

I was so very pleased to find this restaurant. As a vegetarian, I looked to Happy Cow and Restaurant Finder apps. No luck finding anything near and good. Opened my eyes, and Comfort Diner appeared before me like a vision. Well, technically, it was a vision, but you know, more of the miraculous type. GREAT options for all kinds of... More

My extended family group of 5, including 2 teenage granddaughters thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast here. It was a recommendation from the Bell Staff at the Marriott East property - we were looking for a place to walk to and this was his first reference - great choice - very busy and popular - GO!

Try the lemon ricotta pancakes with blueberry, or the smoked salmon scrambled eggs with cream cheese... Or lots other great choices. Excellent food, efficient and warm service. Highly recommended - We will surely come back!

The breakfast rush was just ending when I came in around 9 on a weekday. I had good service and my food was very good. It was a touch greasy but geez it's a diner. It was a filling meal that I need before I headed to LaGuardia. I enjoyed it and will be back.

Lemon Ricotta Pancakes - Corned Beef Hash or the standard breakfast of poached eggs, bacon, and pancakes - and oh boy are they GREAT pancakes! Best I've ever tasted! $10.95-$12.95. Or maybe you'll skip that and go with Oatmeal with raisins, cranberries, walnuts and brown sugar $4.95 to keep you and your wallet fit. Whichever you choose, I recommend this... More

Three friends and I stopped at the Comfort Diner for a big breakfast before heading out to explore the city. We had a hilarious and helpful waitress named Maria-Maria who recommended a couple of dishes--including Lemon Ricotta Pancakes with Blueberries and Red Flannel Hash--both of which were delicious. I had Eggs Benedict and it was yummy! I will return for... More

Whilst visiting new york my mum and I decided we would like to visit an authentic American diner and after reading the reviews we decided that this was the place for us. BIG MISTAKE, the food was disgusting and the plates and cutlery were chipped and dirty! My mum had a BLT sandwich in which the bread was stale and... More
