Had a chicken and bacon sandwich, bun was a bit dry, avocado going black, chicken and bacon were cold, supposed to be hot. It was busy, maybe I was just unlucky. Although having... More

Been to NYC from UK three times and always eaten breakfast at Tick Tock. I noticed a deterioration in the toilet area this time, on one occasion it was particularly smelly, shame as the staff work very hard. I think the service depends on who your waiter/waitress is. Most are friendly, welcoming and polite. A couple we have met over... More

A few minutes wait ( at most ) for a table, a good variety on the menu, reasonably priced wine, great service and a great location. We went back several times.

We really enjoyed several breakfasts and late night meals at the Tick Tock. The service was prompt, and the food was above-average breakfast and diner food. The waiters were a bit sardonic, but efficient, and ultimately, very friendly, once they realized that we were southerners! It's bustling but fun, and literally part of the New Yorker hotel,where we stayed.
