This restaurant is in The New Yorker. During my stay I had breakfast vouchers for the Tick Tock Diner. I could only order a few things off the voucher--not off the full menu--but what I had was very good and fast.

A somewhat average diner - OK for breakfasts, but limited at other times of day. Service seemed a little hit or miss, and many servitors were not of the cheery variety!

We visited this diner a few times during our stay in NYC. Service was excellent each time, the diner was always busy but we were seated & served straight away. The food was wonderful Pancakes, Bacon, Strawberries & Maple Syrup was perfect. Totally yummy.

Handy if staying in The New Yorker Hotel but the food was just average and there are much better places offering a better choice and better value. The service was ok though.

We stayed at the Wyndham New Yorker so the Tick Tock was our easy choice for breakfast every morning. The service really depends on your waiter/waitress. Most of the time, our service was good but some female waitresses were disinterested and slow. The food is good quality - my daughter loved the chocolate chip pancakes and my husband ate the...

Our family eat there every morning for fours days. The Red Velvet pancakes were amazing! I also tried the Philly cheesesteak and that was awesome. Our whole family picked from everyone's plate!

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.
