The food is merely OK. You go for the experience, the talent, the singing waitstaff. It's fun. I like to sing along,

Fun restaurant where most of the waitstaff are wannabe actors or singers. Periodically someone will break out into song. This is a must go to diner at least 1 time for everyone, especially tourists. Food is passable, don't expect high quality.

We stumbled on this gem one night as we were passing to go to the Theatre and returned the next night for a meal. We wern't dissapointed with the food or the entertainment. We were surprised at the talent they have working there. Some were just as good as the singers on stage in Wicked, and could easily have worked... More

visited three times within our weeks stay. The most fascinating and entertaining restaurant I have ever visited and the food was excellent too. Waiters and waitresses serve and entertain in order to try and reach the Broadway shows. They all worked really hard and were very friendly. Hope they all get places in a show one day as they deserve... More

Every time we were in NYC and passed by the Stardust diner we saw a long line of people waiting to get in.. This time we decided to try it out with the kids.. The place has an old world diner vibe with singing waiters & entertainment that we really enjoyed ,however the food was not very good at all..... More

If you have kids, this place is groovy. Singing and Slinging should be the name of this place. Go, enjoy, and get the hell out of there... Breakfast...

First time to NYC to celebrate my 50th birthday and we stopped here. Definitely one of our favorite experiences of the whole trip. The entertainment is incredible and I can see why so many of the servers end up in Broadway shows. Besides all that the food was great and the prices were reasonable and everyone was happy and helpful.... More

The wait staff here are wannabe broadway stars and sing during your visit. The food is pricey and not fantastic but the atmosphere is really fun. The staff will sing all day / evening and a tips bucket is passed around. My kids loved it.

The waitstaff is impressive. Their multitasking capabilities are amazing. That said, the food is crap, the wait is long, and everything is overpriced. Also...our waiter was a bit too concerned with his looks to give good service. I believe he humped our table while he was singing, which probably isn't the best idea for a table full of lesbians.
