I had lunch at the Hollywood Diner with a friend during a short visit to New York, and we enjoyed the classic diner experience. We were greeted cheerfully as we walked in the door and were seated promptly. The menu has a wide variety of dishes, and I was thrilled to find challah French toast on the menu, while my... More

Sadly, places such as the Hollywood Diner are disappearing fast in a landscape overridden by uselessly redundant yogurt shops, luxury high-rises, and high-end gyms. Hollywood Diner is a busy, bustling holdout that will hopefully be around for years to come. Hollywood offers classic diner fare with an enormous menu, featuring full meals as well as a variety of great salads... More

We had a great brunch at this restaurant. The menu was a little overwhelming. There is something to be said about simplicity in a menu, but this restaurant went WAY to the other side of simplicity. The menu was about 522 pages long (sarcasm...but not by much). I had a great brunch. Thank you Hollywood Diner! We enjoyed!

Had quick bowl of nice and hot chicken and rice soup followed by a nicely down chili burger. The hot cocoa was too commercial. Felt good though to get out of the cold. Warm inside but each time the door opened, got the cold wind ! Maybe it's just because I'm from Florida!

I'll preface this by saying that we ordered our dinner from here, so maybe if we had eaten in the restaurant, the food would have been better. It had to be. My brothers and I all ordered fish. Mine could truly have been used as a hockey puck an it had an odor and looked disgusting. My baked potato looked... More

On a recent trip to New York, after visiting her intended college, my daughter and I stumbled upon this while looking for a cab. For some reason she was afraid to go in, as if the word "diner" makes it seedy, but it was so NOT that way -- everyone there eating was dressed well and looked like professionals. I... More

We had a nice meal - the meatloaf was great - but it is way overpriced. The service is okay, not great, and you are kinda packed in as much as they can which isn't great. I wouldn't go back as I like some value for money and space to eat.
