My husband and I found ourselves starving at 11:30 on a Thursday night. We stumbled upon this 24 hour gem and they welcomed us right in. Once I saw the French Dip and Swiss on the menu, I was in. It was absolutely the best one I have ever had. The roast was sliced thinly and piled high. The bread... More

We found this after reading some reviews of all day breakfast spots near our hotel. GO! It has the charm of what you think New York diners should have. Wait staff know the customers, lots of stories and laughter. The waiters are funny and you can tell everyone loves there job! The food came out almost as we ordered. Super... More

Absolutely love this place! We became regulars in the two weeks we stayed in New York last year. Service was fantastic and a great menu. Club sandwich was my favourite, can't wait to come back!

Decent breakfast but wouldn't say it was special. Staff keen to top up coffee which is good but food (eggs, home fries) was average. Also one waiter seemed annoyed with me, when another waiter served me my food. On the plus side there was a cast member from the Sopranos in there. Didn't ask for a photo as Richie Aprile... More

We had breakfast and Scottys won hands down. Fast, efficient service. Everything was fresh. Service was the best. Cannot praise enough. Would go out of my way to eat here, very busy but staff were on the ball and attended to all. If you want super service and food at a great price - this is the place to go.

better than average food; The stocky waiter (around 11PM) was very rude, almost throwing the plate on the table and selectively attending to some tables and completely ignoring others. No smiles for this guy. The guy at the counter on the other hand very nice.We saw the same waiter making banana float without wearing food gloves. The lasagna was surprisingly... More

We ate here twice recently while in New York. Both times it was for breakfast. The food is very good, staff friendly, reasonably priced. What more can you ask for. The amount of people that were in the diner both mornings we were in testify to its quality and price. Would recommend.

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.
